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

Is there any way to get the "Tracking" bubble off the minimap when it shows up in your buffs? Redundancy always annoys me, so having the bubble saying "Track Humanoids" or "Find Herbalism" AND the notation on your mod is annoying. I'd much rather just have your buff notification. Didn't see a way to turn them off via EBB's options.

not yet via EBB but it's on my list. It's a bit tricky by the way Blizzard has coded it but should be doable. But first I'll have to get a working notebook to play/code WoW...

Tip Buddy

Anyone know how to get EBB working with Tip buddy, for some reason the buff tooptips only show up as empty boxes.

Is it possible to make this mod's settings and position character specific?

When I use my Paladin's Holy Shield ability, the bar length relative to the duration seems to think that it's a 30 second buff (I.E. when it is initially cast it only takes up 1/3 of the bar).

Is there a setting or file somewhere I can edit to correct this? I have not noticed it with any other buffs yet.

I would love to see different buff styles added in, like an option for just plain old buff icons.

I have a conflict of some sort. Not a major one, but .. I am running this in conjunction with X-Perl Unit Frames.

When I turn off buffs above my Player Frame, It turns on the default Blizzard Buff Frame ... Is there a way to make sure this mod hides that?

Thanks!

Re: targeted player's buff/debuff/cd timer window

I have the same problem, there is a window that shows my targets buffs/debuffs, and i cant seem to move it. I can't find the option anywhere in the config menu either.

Any ideas on how to deactivate the option?
