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

Thanks g3ggo, that fixed the startup error. However, now a change to the Blizz UI is blocking the ability to right-click off buffs while using this addon. So.... still needing a 4.0.1 fix, unfortunately. I'll keep using it, though - love it too much!

Any chance of an update for 4.0.1? This is one of those "must have" addons if you ask me.

I have reproduced these results on the 4.0.1 PTR as well. With the patch releasing today I'm very sad to not see a fix for this amazing addon.

Hope to see it soon Elkano

Amazing addon! Suffering in beta without it. Looking forward to the Cataclysm version!

Anything we can do to help?

Just wondering if the auther of this addon is still maintaining it. Addon still seems to work just fine, but the file itself hasn't been updated in over a year. Would be nice to know if this file is still going, or if I should start looking for a new addon that is still be kept up by the author with Cata on the horizon.

would it be possible to have the buffs lined up vertically? as in, rows and columns? im trying to duplicate my buff/debuff icons, so that would be really cool if we could make a group showing the icons only, then have like two rows and 10 columns, for example.

Every since the small update on 02/02/2010 all my custom buff bars have there anchor shown when I login. Not a big deal I can just right click on it and uncheck the box and its fixxed.


But is it possiable for a small update to fix this? Other then that the addon still works flawlessly.


Thank you 10/10.
Working fine for me which makes it hard to track down a possible bug... :/
