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).

    Did they fix canceling buffs in combat yet?

  • #281

    Not that I know, and I think they wiill never allow it again. It wasn't a bug, they wanted to prevent addons from canceling buffs in combat automaticly (LK hc was a example I belief).

  • #274

    When I uninstall this I can't get the default Blizzard aura frames to show, the option to show them in this addon does not appear to work either.

  • #275

    The default Blizzard auras are always displayed unless an addon actively hides it, if Aura Frames is disabled or uninstalled, and it's still not showing then that means that an other addon is actively hiding it.

  • #273

    Hi, is there a way to show for example paladin seals like seal of insight?

    tia :-)


  • #268

    Can you mouse over the timeline debuffs to get a description"tooltip" of the debuff or?  I haven't seen an option for it and it'd be nice on certain debuffs that your not familar with the icon to be able to mouse over it.

  • #271

    Go to the layout page in the configuration for that bar, and select "Container receive mouse events". After that you will see more options appear and you can select "Enable tooltips".

  • #272

    Thanks so much!

  • #267

    Is it possible to make vertical layout for bars?

  • #269

    This is atm not posible and it's a lot of work to implement this. This will not be implemented soon.

  • #266

    Is there any way to utilize the consolate buffs feature in aura frames?

    With all the raid buffs being paired down to 8 types, the new consolidate buffs option is pretty useful since you can quickly see which buffs are available and which are applied, unlike the old version which just grouped all the raid buffs. If there isn't a way to use it would it be possible for you to add it, if not I understand, it just seems pretty useful now that all the buffs are broken down into 8 types for all classes for MoP.

  • #270

    This is on the todo list for Aura Frames 2.x

  • #263

    Thanks for updating, but there is no support for Masque (at least I don't see any).

  • #264

    Masque support has been added long time ago and should work fine. Could you see if you see Aura Frames in the Masque interface? Could you otherwise make a ticket with the addon versions and a addon list.

  • #265

    You are right, i accidently disabled ButtonFacade.
