Elkano's BuffBars  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.4.0 - r177

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

Ah, I'm glad I checked the comments before I went ahead and downloaded this then, Pasch!

Is there an ETA on EBB3? I've been using Morganti'sBuffBars for a long time, and I really need a change as (s)he doesn't update them very often, and their quite buggy as it is. I've been on the lookout for a buffmod that could make my buffs/debuffs/weapon buffs look similar (preferably the same) as these:

http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a70...509_184450.jpg

(buffs, left side in between action bars as icons. debuffs, right side above mini-map with text for easy reading. weapon buffs, inside the unitframes there along the bottom as icons..could do without that one, jus a little qwerk)

From what I understand from Pasch's post, this isn't possible at the time, Elkano?

I just downloaded EBB because it has white/blacklist available so I can filter out all the useless buffs I don't care about. LOVE IT!
I would however prefer to just use normal buff icons like Blizzard's with a small timer below them, as it doesnt take up as much space as having bars. Is that possible with this addon? I'd also like to have buffs grow horizontally like Blizzard's if possible.
I have been using Satrina's for this for a while but for some reason it just kills my fps in 25player raids :/

It's not trench but tench, short for temporary enchants. ^^
TENCH is a different group than buffs so you have to resize that group, too.
And for the "name bar", if you mean the anchor saying DEBUFFS, just alt-click a debuff showing in that group or activate the anchor via the DewDrop menu.

The addon still seems broken for me. Tried removing all WTF and Addon files from elkanos and the buffs/debuffs stop updating after a while. Really annoying since I dont how many sanity stacks I have on yogg in example. Is this a common problem or am I missing something?

Is there any way to apply borders to the icons?

I use roth for my action buttons and a thin black square border 2pixels wide on stuff like DBM icons and i would love to be able to get a uniform look from EBB aswell, up untill now i have worked around it by simply not showing icons to get rid of blizz horrible border. But now i need to show icons for my "emergency watch" (stuff like frost stacks on hodir, sanity on Yogg and simmilar) and i would really really love to be able to get a sleek sharp black border on the icons instead of that smudhy greyish slop blizz has on em...

The hunter ferocity pet buff, Rabid, doesn't seem to be getting tracked properly.. it'll show the Rabid buff but it won't show the Rabid Power buff that gets procced from Rabid.

Edit: Nvm.. I realized today it was a timeless buff and I had those filtered on my pet.

Does anyone know how to have the debuff in the same format as I have the buffs shown? I've tried looking but can't figure out how to do it.
So you changed group 1 which shows the buffs (and tracking) by default. All you now have to do is change group 2 (the one showing debuffs by default), too. There's even an option allowing you to copy the layout from group1 though iirc it would overwrite the red color.

Working, for a little while at least

Hey,

Ive used this addon gratefully for years and I love it. Since the last update I was relieved to see it was fixed, or at least I thought it was.
If I reload my UI It works for a little while, however after some combat / pvping or whatnot it bugs out and doesn't update, making me unable to see my buffs / debuffs.

Just wanted to check if this is a known issue or a conflict with different mods, since at the moment its not really working for me.

Thanks in advance!

Im a mage. And I'm using a custom bar to track ttw procing effects on boss fights.

One thing Im tracking is frost fever and was wondering if there is a way to filter duplicates or ignore duplicates or consolidate.

I dont need to see 6 rows of frost fever if we have a lot of dk's in the raid.

thanks.

Does this addon has profiles? I change the colours and bar textures on my mage, log into my lock and its exactly the same, even when ive changed it on my lock. Its all the same!

Bet theres a really simple answer but i cant find it.

Is there currently a way to filter by type of buff (like Magic/Curse/Poison/Disease etc).

Playing as a shaman I was consindering building a list of purgable targets on my target but adding them all to the list manually isn't really feasable.
