Spell Type
Hi. Help I want to create addons which will distinguish types of spells (spell/aura)
How to receive type of a spell of spell or aura?

Thanks. :rolleyes:

Could you be a little bit more specific in what you need or wish to do?

You will want to direct your attention at the following event: COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED
The rest of the information you need to be looking at can be found here ->

If you want to do something with auras (buffs and debuffs) you will probably want to use the UNIT_AURA event.

But, yeah, you need to be a lot more specific about what you want to do if you want a specific answer...

Would I like to make that at guidance of the cursor on spells showed spell type to be exact there is at this spell an effect of aura.

For example: If spells are hung up by any effect on Toltip of a spell writes "Aura - Yes"
If the spell is used simply that "Aura - No"

Still example: as it is Aura there has to be an inscription "Aura - Yes" this spell doesn't give aura "Aura - No"

If to be more exact I need to obtain data: whether gives a spell of aura or not.

sorry my English.

That's impossible, i.e. can't be acquired from game client

Not technically impossible, you could record aura events in the combat log and unitaura using the base spell to build a database to reference after you've encountered it once.
