About Blizzard Raid Frame - Indicators

Configurable indicators for Blizzard Raid Frames showing time of buffs/debuffs on all units in the raid.

There are 9 indicators for each raid member, one on each corner, one on each side and one in the middle.

Indicators can be configured to show any buffs/debuffs of your choice and you can configure several buffs/debuffs in the same indicator. Some simple options lets you select to show only if the buff is missing, only cast by you, stack sizes and more.

As an added bonus there's also an option to turn off the standard buff/debuff icons.

Example of indicators on a unit. Left lower corner shows remaining time of my Rejuvenation, center botton shows stack size and time remaining of my Lifebloom, bottom right shows time left of my Regrowth.
Example of indicators in a raid. The big red dot on Stormfront is an indicator showing he's missing Mark of the Wild or Blessing of Kings.
Also show in this picture is: Blizzard Raid Frame - Raid Icons
Another example, using icons as well as stack size coloring of the Earth Shield buff.

The configuration can be reached through the standard addon options (ESC -> Interface -> Addons -> Raid Frame Indicators) or by typing:
/indicators config
Show when Blessing of Kings or Mark of the Wild is missing on the unit


  • Indicator Font - The font used for an indicator
  • Show Icons - Show/Hide the standard buff/debuff icons
  • Enable - Enable/Disable the addon

Indicator options
The following can be used as buffs/debuffs:

  • Name of buff/debuff - Make sure this corresponds exactly to the name of the buff/debuff as it is called when it's on the unit (you can see the name if you cast the spell on yourself and it's not necessarily the same as the spell name)
  • "Magic/Poison/Disease/Curse" - To show any debuffs of that kind in that indicator
  • Spell ID - ID of the spell to track
  • "PvP" - To show if a unit is PvP flagged
  • "ToT" - To show if a unit is the target of your target

Other options:

  • Mine only - Only look for buffs cast by yourself. Can be used for example to track only hots cast by yourself
  • Show only if missing - Only show the indicator if all the buff/debuff specified are missing. Will be shown with a "blob" instead of numbers
  • Show on me only - Only show the indicator on yourself. Can be used to track missing self buffs or procs on yourself
  • Show text counter - Will show a number counting remaining time
  • Show decimals - Will show remaining time with a decimal for times < 10 s
  • Use stack size coloring - Will color the counter based on the stack size (>=3 green, 2 yellow, 1 red)
  • Color by remaining time - Will use the selected coloring for time > 5 s, yellow for 3-5 s, red for < 3 s remaining time
  • Show stack size - Will show the stack size if the buff/debuff can stack
  • Show icon - Will show the spell icon

    I think the same error would occur on any auras without a duration in combination with "color by remaining time". Thanks for the bug report, I fixed it in the new version.

  • #93

    I always get an message stating that my addons are experiencing a large number of errors...

    I hope you can fix this, as I'd like to use this addon. Looking at the debug display reveals that this addon is the only one at cause. The same error occurs continuously at a rate of approximately 10/sec. Here is the message:

    Just found this addon and love it.  These timers are critical to me as I'm a druid healer and  I can replace Grid or Vuhdo now.  

    I'd like to make feature request.  I know this addon focuses on timers but it would be awesome if it did class colors as well.  I know I can change the bar colors to class colors by default but I want the bars to remain green and the names to be class colored.  If I class color the bars then some classes will make the timers hard to see. (font color may be similar to class color)  Also, some people might like an option for the bar color to fade from green to yellow to orange to red as a players health is decreased.  Just some suggestions, I hope they are well recieved.  Thanks!

    Thank you for your post. I actually made this addon when I was playing a druid healer, had to keep track of the timers.

    Even though I'm sympathetic to your request I don't think that functionality belongs in this addon. Also it is a bit tricky to do since poking on the standard frames easily causes taint issues.

    It is possible I can add some options to make the timers more clear, perhaps a wider shadow or something, I will try and see what I can come up with. I am showing icons on all my hots, that way I know what background color thy have and can adjust the color of the timer to fit.

    I've recently rolled a Shammy and I was curious if there is any way to show indicators for the targets of Chain Heal? Since they don't get "buffed" as such, it could probably be achieved by parsing the combat log. Thanks!

  • #90

    The combat log doesn't show the targets until you finish the cast, at which point it is a bit too late to be of any use, so unfortunately there's not much to do. I know there has been an addon for Grid which made a best guess to what targets would be hit, not sure if it's still being developed.

  • #86

    This addon doesn't seem to work, I've tried reinstalling it, but it still doesn't pop up under the add-on tab! 

  • #88

    Make sure it is installed correctly and enabled. Try disable all other addons and see if that helps.

  • #85

    I found this addon to be really useful with this one

  • #83

    Ver - 1.15

    I can't seem to get the addon to activate at all. I had this problem once before and solved it by updating the Ace library myself.  But for the life of me I can't figure out how to get this addon running this time.  Symptoms: addon configuration doesn't show up under the [addons tab], /indicators config tells me the command is invalid.  It's odd but I seem to be the only one who has this issue.  Not sure if you have any ideas but I' love to get back to using this addon xD.


  • #87

    I've updated the ACE3 libs in the latest release. See if that helps.

  • #84


    I had the same problem myself and  it turned out that if i had Grid addon turned off Raid Frame Indicators wont work too. Solved it by copying AceEvent-3.0 folder from Grid libs to Raid Frames libs folder.

  • #80

    Great addon.

    Only one thing i like to  have  or  know  how to do  it:

    I like  to have  3+ buff or  debuff in same  line.

    Let say i like  to see on right  top coner Renew/Shield/Spirit Shell  icons.

  • #81

    You just add all spells to the list for the top-right indicator, each one on a new line (see the screenshot showing Mark of the Wild/Blessing of Kings). If you have more than one on you at the same time it will show whichever is highest up in the list.

  • #92

    Yeah, but it would be nice to show all the ones you have on the list, not just the one highest up
