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

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.

Thanks and also keep up the good work! By the way I would suggest you make a gui window or do easier slash commands...cuz it's much easier to know what your going to type instead of typing /ebb or /elkbuffbar and than seeing what you would do...also easier to learn...:\! Thanks again for this great addon! -Please help me! >< XD

well I guess I got confused having downloaded from http://www.wowace.com/wiki/ElkBuffBar...

Any ideas on a CL parameter to disable / enable the mod?

How to enable/disable

Great mod - is there any way to turn them OFF aside from unloading the mod and reloadui? Command line switch or something perhaps.

Also, the mod options do not show up in Deuce Commander. Is this a switch or a major deal.

thanks again

my current match is: "^([^%(]+) %(%d+ [^%)]+%)"
maybe I should change it to: "^(.+) %(%d+ [^%)]+%)$", I wonder if that would work. Feel free to try. The pattern is found in the function GetTempBuffName around line 445.

temporary weapon enchants

Thanks for responding! Perhaps the reason is that the tooltip shows: Sharpened (+8 damage) and the parentheses() throws off the scanning? Could it be tweaked somehow for the next update?

Re: temporary weapon enchants

well, the problem is that there is no API to obtain the name of these enchants. So I had to fall back to tooltip scanning which isn't perfect :/

temporary weapon enchants

Great mod. Thanks for your work. But I would like to know why some temporary weapon enchants will show as Weapon 16(slot number) when others will actually show the enchant description.

e.g.
elemental sharpening stone = +28 critical rating
dense sharpening stone = weapon 16(or 17) when it should be: sharpened (+8 damage)


I looked thru the .lua and cannot figure out why. Thanks for any help!

Character settings

Haven't noticed anything like this myself (maybe I didn't look hard enough) but are there any plans to add a per-character settings option? I don't necessarily keep the buff bars in the same place on all of my characters so it'd be nice if I didn't have to reposition these every time I switch characters.

Another thing I've noticed is that every time I log onto a character, the buff bars are moved down one pixel from the top of my screen. I don't normally gripe with such minor things but I frequently r-click my buffs away and my old habit if simply mousing to the top right corner of the screen to do it no longer works, and I have to mouse down a little bit to do it.

Otherwise this is an excellent AddOn and I appreciate your hard work.

Respectfully yours,
Ben.

My lock isn't specced for that, but if it gives you a buff of some kind, it will display with this mod just like any other buff does. If it doesn't, then it won't.

Great addon. Are there any future plans to provide a configuration GUI via Fubar or other?

As far as changing colors, we can do that in the lua document. *whistle*

I ask about backlash because i'm lookingn for a mod that will alert me in some way that backlash has proc'd (without running necrosis)
