EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.

Due to changes Blizzard made with WoW 4.x it's no longer possible to cancel buffs without the use of secure frames. Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version.

Version 2.x is a total recode based on the Ace2 framework which became necessary in order to support some of the longtime wanted and suggested features.
It's now possible to show different groups of bars which can be configured in many ways. Each group can be assigned an individual look and filter settings.
EBB can be configured via a dropdown menu which is accessible via chat (/ebb config), FuBar plugin or (for the group settings) by right clicking the groups anchor.
After setting up a group, its anchor can be hidden by alt-left clicking a bar or the anchor itself in order to lock the group in place.

In order to get additional bar textures and fonts for EBB simply install SharedMedia which is available for download under http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/sharedmedia.aspx

I would like this to expand upwards from the bottom. Is that possible with the current settings? I've toggled all the ones I can see from the command line to no avail.

Does your 2-25-07 response mean you're still developing this mod?

depleting meaning going from empty to full is possible by changing the value set from timeleft to (timemax - timeleft). But that would still be left-to-right movement. I still haven't found a way for right-to-left :/

Everything works great apart from one thing - can I make the bars fill instead of deplete? In other words, fill the other direction?

Hacking LUA is NP if you just tell me what to hack =D

would it be possible to split the list of buffs in two parts?
for my warrior it would be very helpful, if i had the rebuffeable buffs (like battle shout and rampage) seperated from the others.

i could concentrate on these two buffs and ignore others.

ps: sry for my bad english^^

Shield Left

As you all already know, some classes have shields that absorb a known amount of damage (and some shields absorb just one kind of damage like Mage spell Fire Ward) and the buff bar displays this shields with the time left. Is there a way to add the absorb capacity left on the shield? For example splitting this kind of buffs into 2 lines of colors and displaying both time left and capacity left...

You should put buff fade warnings in this addon. I like how it looks much more than ctmod but ctmod has that buff fade warning.

if you could do that, but better, i'd love your addon more than any others.

i always forget to rebuff battle shout. ;x

bugfix is most likely the 'run outdated addons' switch
or try the latest version from svn: http://www.wowace.com/files/ElkBuffBar/ElkBuffBar.zip

Broken?

Hey guys. My Buffbar mod stopped working after the last patch prepping for BC, I was curious if there was a fix out there for it yet? I can't stand the CT-buffbar, Elk's is the only one I've been using since it came out.

Thanks guys!

If it doesn't replace your standard buff status, you could always kill it with MoveAnything! if you got that, you could also use it to replace any mods you have that hide error frames, actionbar art, that annoying new minimap map button, etc.
