ShieldsUp  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.8.186
by: Phanx, Akkorian
ShieldsUp monitors your Earth Shield, Water Shield, and Lightning Shield.
  • Easy-to-read plain text display
  • Shows your active shields and their remaining charges *
  • Shows who you cast your Earth Shield on
  • Visual indication when another shaman overwrites your Earth Shield
  • Optional text and sound alerts when one of your shields expires or is removed
  • Condensed display while solo (or for shamans without Earth Shield)
  • Support for all colorblindness modes
  • Support for custom fonts and sounds via LibSharedMedia-3.0 media packs
* Note that Water Shield and Lightning Shield will display a "W" or "L", respectively, except for elemental shamans, who will see a number for Lightning Shield when they have at least one extra charge.

Type “/sup” for options, or browse to the ShieldsUp panel in the standard Interface Options window.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why isn’t ShieldsUp monitoring my Earth Shield?
A: ShieldsUp only monitors Earth Shield when it’s cast on yourself, or on a player or pet in your party or raid group. There is no way for addons to reliably monitor buffs cast on units who are not in your group, so ShieldsUp doesn’t try.
Q: Why am I only seeing one charge counter?
A: ShieldsUp switches to a single-counter display when you are solo, or if you don’t have the Earth Shield talent, since in either situation it’s only possible for you to have one shield active on a target ShieldsUp can monitor.
Feature Requests

I consider ShieldsUp to be complete, and do not plan to add any new features. If you would like to suggest something anyway, feel free to submit a suggestion ticket describing your idea.

Bug Reports

If you encounter a problem with ShieldsUp, please try some quick troubleshooting steps first, and then submit a bug report to let me know about the problem.

Please copy this list into your ticket and fill in as many of the details as you can.
  • ShieldsUp version (eg. 3.3.5.71)
  • WoW version and locale (as seen on the login screen, eg. 3.3.5 enUS)
  • Character level, spec, and race
  • Description of the problem
  • What steps can I follow to reproduce the problem?
  • Does the problem happen when all other addons are disabled?
  • Exact text of the first related error message, if any.
    Please DO NOT include any lists of local variables or installed addons that your error display may add!
  • Screenshot, if the problem is graphical.
Remember to check on your ticket after a few days, as I may need more information from you in order to find and fix the problem!

Language Support

ShieldsUp is compatible with English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 game clients.

ShieldsUp is translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어 (partial), 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the ShieldsUp localization page on CurseForge, and then leave a comment, or send me a PM here or on CurseForge, to let me know that you’ve made changes. If you don’t have a Curse account and don’t want to create one, you can PM me your translations instead. Thanks!

As of patch 5.0.4 and the newest version instead of displaying a # it's displaying W if no shield is set and L when lightning is active but no counter. Is this a bug?

That is not a bug. Read the change logs. Specifically:
  • Updated for MoP changes: Water Shield and Lightning Shield no longer have charges, and will show a "W" or "L" instead of the number of charges.
It shows a W if you log in without a shield because Water Shield is the default self-shield if you have not yet cast one this session. I guess I could add a spec check to default to Lightning Shield for Enhancement, but there are no longer charge counters for these shields because they no longer have any charges; they're just self-buffs that last for 1 hour, with effectively infinite charges.

The L though while LS is active shouldn't stay as an L though should it? Does it not display a counter anymore?

Look at your buffs in-game. Lightning Shield and Water Shield do not have any charges now. In WoW 5.0, you cast the buff, and it stays on you for 1 hour (or until you remove it, or an enemy dispels it), proccing an unlimited number of times as long as it's active instead of proccing 5 times and then going away.

Hello,

you say "Look at your buffs in-game. Lightning Shield and Water Shield do not have any charges now. In WoW 5.0"

thats not realy true!

In the Elemental Spec, we have charges (in beta pandaria and today in 5.0 live)
And the pameplay says...."if you have 7 charges of lightning shield, use earth shock for good dmg"
We have charges from 1-7.
That is the fact because i love this addon. Yeah now LS is not a 10 minutes buff, its a 1h buff, but sure we have the charges and its normal gameplay use earth shock if you have full LS.

so please, i need my tracker back

regards, kristina

Thanks for the info. I only play Enhancement and Restoration. I'll make a premade on the beta servers and check it out.

  • Elemental shamans will now see a number instead of an "L" for Lightning Shield when it has at least one extra charge (2+ total charges).

Guys, this is why you should follow the directions for reporting a problem, as written in the addon description. There is a reason for each piece of information I ask for. In this case, your character's spec was the critical part. If you don't give me enough information to identify the problem, I'm just going to assume you didn't read the patch notes, and tell you there's no problem, no matter how many times you repeat yourself. I'm far too busy to spend hours trying to recreate every conceivable condition in an attempt to hunt down some vaguely described possible problem.
