BAB Auras (WoD)
Version: 1.0.1
by: Duugu [More]
BAB Auras (WoD) is a new buff/debuffs (auras) display addon that allows you to create aura bars that follow all sorts of paths and curves. Would you like to show you buffs/debuffs in a circle around your minimap? To follow a curve beneath your character frame? How about make a gentle wave at the bottom of the screen? You need only drag the anchor and pivot points to your desired location and the auras will change shape.

Important: You need to download and install the BAB Texture Pack(WoD) to use BAB Auras (WoD).
The texture pack is only updated if new textures are added to the game itself. You don't have to update the texture pack every time a new BAB Auras (WoD) version is realeased.

Canceling Buffs
With BAB Auras you can cancel buffs as usual. Just right click on them.
BUT canceling buffs is restricted to out of combat situations only! You can't cancel buffs in combat.
The reason for this is that Blizzard restricts the buff canceling thingi for addons. Sad but true.

As a default BAB Auras replaces the Blizzard standard buff/debuffs and shows 3 new aura bars (Buffs, Debuffs, Enchants) that are identical to the Standard Blizzard buff bars.
Type /babauras to open the configuration mode.
Have a look at the new aura bars (top right, left of the minimap).
There are 4 small 'pivot points'. Two green at the ends of each and two red between them. Click and drag the pivot points to control the aura bars shape. Use the grey bar anchor of each aura bar to drag the full bar around.
Click on "Reset Aura Bar" in the options window to reset the currently selected aura bar (standard size/shape, positioned at the screens center).
Click on "Reset Profile" to rest all bars to their initial state.

Reporting bugs
I do not play WoW actively. I'm only developing addons. That means, if you don't report bugs they will remain forever.
So ... if you're encountering any bugs then please report them!
Please report all bugs and problems as detailed as possible. It helps a lot if you provide the ingame error massage with you report. An addon like BugSack is the best way to capture information about errors ingame.
There's also a forum thread. (BAB Auras is a spin-off from BAB Bars).

Show your work
I would love to to see what you are doing with this addon. Please feel free to show screenshots of your UI using BAB Auras in the comments.

BAB Auras does support Masque - even if there's currently no working Masque version for WoD. ;D
- Fixed a profiles bug that could trigger on first load of the addon
- Prepared for supporting Masque
- Fixed a bug that triggers if BAB Auras and BAB Bars are installed
- Added options to sort buffs and debuffs (by remaining, duration or name). Default sort method is "Remaining Time descending".

- initial version

Nice surprise

Thank you for your time and energy creating and maintaining this addon. I was looking for an addon to move the auras to an easier to read location. This does the trick.

I have not found a need to create the different sizes and shapes for each row of auras, but I can foresee this in coming months when WoD goes live. This could work well with some addons I use.

Keep up the good work.
