About Aura Frames

Aura Frames allows you to display any kind of buff or debuff on any given unit with highly customizable filtering, ordering, coloring and animation functionality.

The "engine" behind the screens is the LibAura that is specific written for AuraFrames that provide aura information over all the units and even more. It also include information over internal cooldowns, spell cooldowns, totems, weapon enchantments, testing units and more.

The filtering, ordering and coloring is unique. No addon has ever approach Aura Frames with the way the internal system is working. The most important difference is that Aura Frames is not checking realtime aura's on all properties but is generating real lau code blocks based on filtering, ordering and coloring that are parsed by WoW/Lua and are executed as native lua functions (for non nerds: its fast)!

It supports currently 3 ways of displaying aura's. Button, bar or timeline style.

Supporting the following sources:

  • Buffs and Debuffs on any unit (your self, target, pet etc)
  • Weapon enchantments
  • Spell cooldowns
  • Spell cooldowns of your pet
  • Item cooldowns
  • All internal item cooldowns (with a self learing functionality to detect the cooldown times)
  • Mouse over
  • Test unit
  • Totems
  • Boss Mods (DXE and DBM are currently supported)

Feature highlights:

  • Support for multiple ways of displaying aura's
  • Unlimited amount of containers to order and display aura's
  • Advanced filtering configuration
  • Advanced ordering configuration
  • Duration can be displayed in multiple ways
  • Customizable animation system that can be triggered by multiple events
  • Shared Madia support for bar textures and fonts
  • Masque (ButtonFacade) support for button and bar
  • Support for cancel buffs in combat

Console commands:

  • /af - Open the Aura Frames configuration (also available from the interface menu)
  • /affixdb - Tries to fix your Aura Frames database, use this before /afreset if you have problems (the addon need a /reloadui after this command)
  • /afreset - Will reset your whole database. Use this only if you have big problems

TIP: Shift right click an aura to dump the properties to the chat window. This will help you to create filters. (This only works when an container can be clicked).

    I couldn't find if it was possible to display an icon in a container, if a specific buff was *missing* .

    Long story short, can I use this addon to tell me if my "trap launcher" buff is missing ?

  • #424

    Hi Beautuz! I'm a PvP'er on the server Ragnaros.

    While I was fighting my way through the arenas, I wanted an addon, to change the look of the buff/debuffs.

    I went over this AddOn, I loved it from the start, it amazed me just by looking at the picture. But when I installed it, afterwards I set it up, it didn't work - it simply won't work, it doesn't allow me to show Consolidate buffs, it only works in the default buff frames. It would be really kewl to implement that, or just send me the .lua code, and tell me where to put it. Thanks again for this awesome addon Beautuz, though I'm gonna disable this addon, for now; Untill the problem is solved.

    Thanks again.

    Hi! Gerat addon, liked it much! Thank you for it!  But:
    Tried to make some kind of my own LoseControl (for arena) - by makeing white list of debuffs (it works for me or target), 
    but I can`t make it for my party members - tried almost everything in expert modes of sources, tried different conditions in filters - nothing works, seems like just no info comes from group debuffs source. 
    Can you help me please!

    How can i increase aura border scale???

  • #419

    I'm not sure what exactly is causing this, but I am no longer seeing any DBM bars while Aura Frames is enabled, despite the options for DBM Bar's being enabled in Aura Frames.
    I have not yet tried downgrading DBM but presume this is a change in the most recent DBM breaking the compatability with Aura Frames.

    DBM 6.0.12-21-g5497665

    Is their an option to turn on consolidated buffs?

  • #420

    i second that, is there an option? and if not could you add one? :D

    great addon many thanks

  • #413

    Hmm my last post was wrong.

    I think line 849 just shouldn't be there.  There is no cooldown frame for a Bar.

  • #415


    Thanks for your report. The line should be there but it should have been "Bar.Button.Cooldown". I fixed it in 1.4.4. Sorry for the inconvenience

  • #411

    Something majorly borked with this new release. Keeps showing buffs I don't have anymore (even test buffs in config will trigger this), won't show buffs I do have, blank spaces between bars/icons. Gone back to 1.4.2 for now.

  • #414

    Please try 1.4.4, I had a typo in the code. Sorry for the inconvenience

  • #410

    Hello, I love this addon, its awesome!

    After last update this error came up and aura frames are bugged - order, or exactly ... possition of buffs is wrong. Some buffs do not wont to disapear in their time ... and when they finaly do possition of new buffs is bugged.

    Edit: It happens when I deselect my target. Some of his buffs/debuffs are still visible (even when I dont have any target I see them). After that it bugs.
