SmartBuff is a buff addon, to cast buffs ease and quickly. All classes are supported. Bind a key, scrollwheel or use the action button and it checks if you, a party/raid member, also hunter and warlock pets, needs your buff and cast it. Use the options menu to configure it you like, as example: buffs, raid subgroups, pets, etc.
Run the mod when ever you wish, if nothing is buffed, there is no penalty or cool down.

Broker_SmartBuff plugin

FuBar-SmartBuffFu plugin

SmartDebuff is not part of this project you can download it here.

- FAQ -
Q1: How can I cast group/class buffs, instead of single buffs?
A1: Select both checkboxes, assign the classes, use following options the play around "Grp buff check", "Grp range check" and "group size"/"class size" slider
Example, if you set the group/class slider to 3 it will only buff the greater buff if 3 or more units not have it.

Q2: How can I move the frames and buttons?
A2: Use Shift-Left click and drag them arround

Q3: How can I assign a trigger key for buffs?
A3: Use the Blizzard interface -> keyboard layout to define the trigger key for SmartBuff. Open and close the SmartBuff options frame and it will remap this key to the new SecureActionButton

Q4: How can I assign a key for debuffing?
A4: During the new Blizzard secure UI is this not longer possible!

Q5: How can I disable the scrollwheel buffing?
A5: Disable the "Buff on scroll" in the SmartBuff options frame, close it and rebind scrollwheel to whatever you want

Q6: How can I cast buffs in combat?
A6: If you want to cast a spell in combat, the you have to check also the "in combat" option in the main options frame (on the right of "Buff on scroll").
Be carfully with this option. In combat is no logic allowed, so SB sets your first "combat"-buff on your key before combat, but in combat it can't do any actions to prevent to cast during the restrictions. It only can show you when do you need a buff, but any time you hit the key in combat it buffs.
Thats also the reason why the "in combat" is per default "off".

Q7: SmartDebuff casts the wrong debuff on a player, is this a bug?
Please watch carfully in which color the debuff button is highlighted, this is very important! You have to click the button with the correct mouse click
Highlighted BLUE = LEFT click
Highlighted RED = RIGHT click
Highlighted GREEN = MIDDLE click

Q8: It does not buff anything, whats wrong?
A8: Please make sure you have selected any buff and the right classes. If you are in resting mode (Cities) SmartBuff is per default in "sleep mode" and does not cast spells, select the option "Buff in cities" to cast buffs in resting mode also.

Q9: Can I use SmartBuff in a macro?
A9: Yes, since the last blizzard added a /click command, use following command:
/click SmartBuff_KeyButton

I just found this nice sounding addon... A little bit more "help" text would be great.
F.e: Features:
-choose which groups u wanna buff
-autobuff groups (it checks every 5-30 secs who is unbuffed and buff him as soon as u move (by keyboard OR mouse))

A missing info (i cant check it atm): will it try to buff a warlock IMP (when "buff warlocks pet" is checked ofc)? as imps are not buffable when not in combat... prolly this will cause problems?

EDIT: can u implement a checking if mounted? its a bit "annoying" when riding for 5+ minutes without buffs and u get errors "You are mounted" all the time ;-)

EDIT: Error message: ...lua:224:attempt to concatenate local 'classeng' (a nil value)
this happend when i released after dead in a raid (it happens everytime i release till now)

Please add Priest racial spelsl

Could you please add the priest racial spells? Perhaps not fearward, but Feedback, Touch of Weakness, etc.


(just installed this, looking forward to messing with this. Thanks.)

I look forward to you adding Paladin buffs. I've been using BuffBot because of the mindless spamming button, but it's got too much chaff I don't want.

Becaus AutoBuff buffs only you.
Smartbuff needs an actionslot to do the rangecheck for other players. You can place the buffs on any actionbar, also on a hidden one. There are 10 actionbars, I think you will finde somewhere a nice place for the buffs

Can you please add an option to force buffing if a buff is going to expire within a specified period. For example, when I get the warning that a buff is going to expire, that's when I want to reapply it.

Nice mod thanks.

Smartbuff.lua:80 attempt to index global 'SmartBuffOptionsMinimapButton (a nil value)

and then Smartbuff.lua;1137 attempt to index global SMARTBUFF_options ( a nil value) when right clicking button.

this only occurs with paladin and warrior logins

Thanks for this mod. Definitely makes the loss of Autobuff much easier to handle.

I would like to suggest that you add Mana Shield to the list of items for mages.

Alternately, you could perhaps add a feature that allows someone to add their own list of items on top of the preselected list you have provided. I don't know if that's possible or not, but it would make the mod more customized for each individual if you could.

Once again, thanks!

I've been looking for replacements for BuffAhoy and BestBuff, not that they are bad - but I feel one addon can and should handle both functions. So this poses some questions:

- Checks buffs and rebuff you, raid/party members, raid/party pets
In this respect, your addon is much like BuffAhoy in that it will recast any expired buffs on you, your party, or your raid via a single keypress, yes? You've mentioned a single keypress at another point, I just want to verify this. Also, is this function automated or only done via keypress (i'd actually preferr the keypress so spells aren't randomly casting for me).

- Supports character level based buffs
This one is not so clear on its function to me. Is this a BestBuff kind of thing, in that it selects the best buff possible based on the targets level? If not, what does this mean?

Buffs are only casted, if you press a key (optional you can select "buff on scrollwheel"), but you can use the same key for all buffs you have selected to cast.

- Supports character level based buffs
You're right, it selects the best buff possible based on the targets level.

In druid cat form, I like to have Track Humanoids going at all times. At the moment, the mod says that I cannot cast spells while shapeshifted. Would it be possible to add in this functionality on smartbuff. Autobuff does this, but I prefer to use only 1 mod for all my buffing enjoyment Thanks for the great mod.

The latest version of "Autobuff" now has a feature that "Casts buffs when you switch targets or gain a new target. "

Is there anyway this could be added to SmartBuff?

would be cool if it supported totems..

more cool if then you could integrate that with the party mode and raid modes to help a shaman remember and cast the totems they chose and some count down timers to go along with it. I suppose one could just run another mod that does this along side smartbuff but it would just be cooler to have SmartBuff do it all =cP
