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

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

Bar colors and textures

I agree. Great buff mod but different classes have different UI needs(looks) and an in-game way to change the colors and maybe even the textures...is the only thing holding it back.

I know you can edit the bar color in lua out of game..but what a hassle. Especially when I want different bar colors for each of my classes/char's.

So, yes profiles please.

targeted player's buff/debuff/cd timer window

I am having trouble moving the window that shows the targeted player/npc's buff/debuff/cd timer window. EBB is unlocked, i have checked that. Also i can move my buff/debuff/cd timer window fine. Any thoughts on what may be wrong?

I'm using Elkano's BuffBar 1.3. I'm talking about the window that holds the timers for these debuffs(say a rogue) rupture, sap/gouge, kidney shot etc. on the targeted npc/player. It starts it out on the middle left side of my screen if that helps also.

I think you have also installed Nature Enemy Cast Bar or something like this :P

Is it possible to have tracking of all sorts added to the buff monitor? I'd like to have my find minerals icon removed from my minimap and placed with my buffs. I was pretty sure I saw some screenshots of EBB (or a similar addon, I guess) which had the tracking listed in with the buffs.

It's funny you mention that as it's what I was going to suggest.

However, I'd go one step further (in a sense) and suggest that instead of adding extra textures, just switch to hooking into SurfaceLib for the texture handling. It already exists and it's really why Ace is there to begin with, no?

At any rate, superb mod. It is a staple for me. Keep up the good work, kind sir.

I think it uses SharedMedia and SharedMediaLib - sorta the new generation of Surfaces. SurfaceControl still works with it, too.
