Cancel My Buffs

Version: 6.0.2.83
by: Phanx [More]

Quickly and easily remove unwanted buffs using key bindings.
Unerwünschte Stärkungszauber mit Tastenbelegungen rasch und leicht abbrechen.
Rápidamente cancelar los beneficios no deseados mediante las asignaciones de teclas.
Быстрое удаление ненужных баффов с помощью сочетания клавиш.
使用绑定的快捷键快速移除不想要的buff。
使用綁定的快捷鍵快速移除不想要的buff。

Since most buff addons can’t cancel buffs on right-click anymore due to Blizzard’s annoying restrictions, Cancel My Buffs lets you bind keys to cancel buffs without hunting or clicking. You simply choose (ahead of time) which buffs you want to cancel, add them to a group, and bind a key to the group. When you press that key, all of the buffs in the group are cancelled. Dismounting, leaving vehicles, and leaving shapeshift forms are also supported.

For example, if you’re a tank, you may find it useful to bind a key to cancel Hand of Protection. I have a key just for cancelling Slow Fall effects.
Usage
Type "/cmb" for options, or find them in the Interface Options window.

Key bindings are saved on a per-profile basis. Buffs and buff groups are saved globally, so you don't have to set them up all over again for every different character you play.
Limitations
Cancel My Buffs is slightly less flexible than simply clicking off a buff, since you have to set up a fixed list ahead of time of the buffs you want to cancel, but once you've done that, it is faster than hunting through buff icons to click off Hand of Protection. Plus, it works no matter which buff addon you use!

Due to Blizzard restrictions, it is not possible to remove a buff only if certain conditions are met. For example, you cannot remove Aspect of the Cheetah only if you’re Dazed. When you press your chosen key, all of the buffs on your list will be removeed if you have them, and the list cannot be edited while in combat.
Feature Requests
If there’s a buff you think should be included in the preset buff groups, post a comment with the exact buff name and spell ID. Hint: it’s the number in the URL if you look the buff up on Wowhead.

For other ideas and suggestions, submit a ticket.
Bug Reports
If you encounter a problem with Cancel My Buffs, please try some quick troubleshooting steps, and then submit a bug report to let me know about the problem.

Please copy this list into your ticket and fill in as much of the requested information as you can.
  • Cancel My Buffs version (eg. 3.3.5.71)
  • WoW version and locale (as seen on the login screen, eg. 3.3.5 enUS)
  • Description of the problem
  • Steps to reproduce the problem
  • Whether the problem happens when all other addons are disabled
  • Exact text of the first related error message, if any
    Please do not include any lists of local variables or installed addons that your error display may add!
  • Screenshot, if the problem is graphical
Remember to check on your ticket after a few days, as I may need more information from you in order to find and fix the problem!
Language Support
Compatible with all locales. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the Cancel My Buffs localization page on CurseForge, and then leave a comment or send me a PM to let me know that you’ve made changes. If you don’t tell me, I may not notice your translations for weeks or months or even longer, since CurseForge doesn’t give me any kind of notification! If you don’t have a Curse account and don’t want to create one, you can PM me your translations instead. Thanks!

Known Issues

Sometimes the keybinding doesn’t work on login. I am investigating, but in the meantime you can fix it by opening the options panel (type “/cmb”) and toggling any option off and back on.
Is there a script we can use in a macro, to remove buffs until the keybinding gets fixed?

Such as:

/click CancelMyBuffsButton

Hi Angrysteel,

The macro you posted should work. I haven’t ever had the keybinding problem, and I’m not really sure what could cause it, which is why I haven’t fixed it yet.

Ya, just tested /click CancelMyBuffsButton

It did work, was just a complete guess lol, didnt expect it to actually do anything ;p


I will mess around with the keybind not working again. I havent tried it since the newest version, but didnt see any mention of it being fixed, so figured the issue was still there. Maybe its gone ;p


EDIT: Just set F12 as keybind. Buffed weapons, hit F12, buffs were removed. Logged out of the game to character screen, logged back in, hit F12, nothing was removed

Seems the issue is still here.


EDIT 2: /click CancelMyBuffsButton in a macro or typing it out, will no longer work either, without rebinding.

EDIT 3: When only running CancelMyBuffs, and no other addons at all, i cant reproduce the keybind bug or the /script not working.

EDIT 4: When running with Pitbull 4, keybind and script no longer work without rebind.

I can run every single module within PB4 and CMBs works fine as long as i DISABLE the module [Pitbull4 Hide Blizzard Frames].


Hopefully this can help you fix CMB, or maybe CMB will not be compatible with Unit Frame Addons that modify Blizzards buff / debuff frames?

Either way, this should allow you to reproduce the error, as i was able to reproduce it 100% by simply toggling on / off the Hide Blizzard Frames module included with Pitbull4. I dont use any other Unit Frames, so unable to test with things like oUF, SUF, Xperl, etc.

Also, if you find the time, could you add:

Enhanced Agility
Enhanced Strength
Enhanced Intellect

To the remove buffs section?


These 3 buffs are part of the alchemy profession, Flask of Enhancement.

Atm, blizzard will not allow you to refresh this buff, without removing it first. And when you change specs, from say Elemental Shaman (you will have Enhanced Intellect buff), to Enhancment Shaman (you need Enhanced Agility), you are unable to use Flask of Enhancement without canceling the old buff first.


Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I’ll download PitBull4 and see if I can figure out what the problem is.

I still couldn’t reproduce the keybinding problem with PitBull4 installed, so it might be something with your settings. I did make a change that might fix it, though. If it still happens, it would be helpful if you uploaded your saved variables for both CancelMyBuffs and PitBull4 (and its modules) somewhere, and sent me a PM with links to them. That way, I can log in with the same settings you use.

Version 4.0.3.31
  • Added the Snowman buff from the Winter Veil Disguise Kit item
  • Added the three possible buffs from the Flask of Enhancement consumable
  • Possibly fixed the problem with the keybinding not working right away on login

Ok. Semi working lol.

My keybind works, even after a reload or logout. It will dismount, it will remove Flask of Enhancement, etc etc.

It will not remove weapon buffs tho, after a reload or relog. Tested on both my shaman and rogue. Results were the same.


So, the addon is working fine with every buff i tested, except weapon buffs for some reason. I dont know if its the new version or if its always worked like this for me, since i only used CMB to remove weapon enchants (and now, to remove the flasks).

I can upload my saved variables somewhere if you still want them.


I wish blizzard would have simply left scripts like:

/script CancelItemTempEnchantment(1)

alone Dont suppose you have a working script for removing weapon buffs? Im guessing this now has to be done via secure templates now, and require an addon like CMB.

Okay, that should be fixed now as well. It looks like PitBull4 hides the weapon buff frames later in the loading sequence than the buff addon I use. What was happening was that CancelMyBuffs wasn’t setting the ID numbers on the weapon buff buttons becuse when it loaded, the weapon buff frames weren’t hidden yet, and it doesn’t want to mess with the frames if they’re actually being used. I added some code to detect when another addon hides the weapon buff frames, and make sure all the ID numbers are set afterward.

Version 4.0.3.32
  • Fixed weapon buff cancelling with addons that hide the buff frames later in the loading sequence

Awesome work Akkorian.

Canceling weapon buffs is working just fine now. Reloaded half a dozen times, logged in and out, and the keybind is now working flawlessly.

Thanks for taking the time to look into these issues and getting them fixed.

Akkorian, any thoughts on why restrictions on clicking off buffs was introduced? I'm struggling to think of a situation where allowing a mouse click interaction could ever be considered an exploit.

Hi duhwhat,

I’m not sure what exactly the “problem” was, but I’m sure there was some kind of explanation from Blizzard. Check their official forums, or one of the “blue tracker” sites, and you can probably find something.

Would it be possible to add Ice Block to the list of cancellable buffs?

Hi Aisenfaire,

Ice Block is part of the default “Invulnerability” group, so if you have that group enabled, it should get cancelled. Let me know if it’s not working!
