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

    This is one of the best addons ever. Light weight, great looking, very functional.

    Thank you so much! :)

  • #62

    love this one very  much, only one thing i would like too add is that u can see what type of debuff u have on ya with som standard coloring

  • #65

    Not a bad idea, I might look into it. You can always set up one indicator for each type of debuff and color accordingly, but that would "steal" 4 indicators. I'm currently on a break until MoP, but might look into it after that.

  • #61

    I have updated the Ace3 libs, there was a bugfix in them which fixed a taint bug. This might help those of you that have had this problem.

    If you still get this problem, type "/console taintLog 1" in-game. Re-produce the error, only using this addon, and then look in the "logs" folder in your wow installation and pm the file "taint.log" to me.

  • #55

    I have the below problem, even when only using this addon and none other.  It's only been a problem since last update.


    Also i would love a "Not Mine" tickbox for the buffs.  ie. seeing earthshield on tanks that i have not cast, so i know not to overwrite it.

  • #56

    I can't seem to get that error even when forcing it. Can you try doing a taint logging and pm me? Would give me an indication of what it could be.


    Also, good idea with the  "not mine", I will add that in the next update.

  • #59

    I suspect there's something in the ACE3 libraries causing this, seems more addons have this problem. I'm thinking of rewriting the addon without using any libs so I have control of everything, but it's a farily large job. Will try find time for it though.

  • #58

    I've tried using /console taintLog setting 1 and /console taintLog setting 2 ingame

    It's just "/console taintLog 1" or "/console taintLog 2" (without the quotes, of course) typed into chat. Maybe that's why you aren't getting a taint log.

    EDIT: Sorry, hit the wrong "Reply", so my comment is out of position. /EDIT

    I've tried using /console taintLog setting 1 and /console taintLog setting 2 ingame, but am unable to generate any log file named Warcraft\Logs\taint.log


    Anyway what happens is, if a person leaved a group while in combat, the frames does not update the new positions of people.  Not even after combat ends.  Only way to fix is, is by doing a /reload or do a relog.


    If raid member number 1 leaves the raid duing combat, then number 2 should move into his spot, but he does not.  But if you target number 1,the target will be the person who was number 2 before, it's just not him on the frames.

  • #53

    Heya, great addon, but as blizzard's raid unit frame, if a person leaves the raid it buggs out and i cannot target certain players, or when it does, it's completly random! Any work arounds for that? (Xperl has same issue, apparently grid & vuhu doo does not)

  • #54

    I get that error from AtlasLoot. Even when I got this addon disabled. Try disabling this addon and see if you get the same problem. Try running only this addon and no other addons and see if you get the same problems.

  • #52

    New version uploaded:

    * Added option to turn of the decimal

    * Added option to change color depending on remaining time

    * Added the possibility to use spell ID's instead of names

  • #50

    it was ez-er than it seemed, not made anything configurable yet but did get it to do what I want :)

    Changed the second formatting to %d

    changed the stack color thing and added some lines

    if Indicators.db.profile["stackColor"..i] and count > 0 then
            if count == 1 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(1,0,0,1) end
            if count == 2 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(1,1,0,1) end
            if count > 2 and remainingTime > 5 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(0,1,0,1) end
            if count > 2 and remainingTime < 5 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(1,1,0,1) end
            if count > 2 and remainingTime < 3 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(1,0,0,1) end
    if not Indicators.db.profile["stackColor"..i] then
            if remainingTime > 5 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(0,1,0,1) end
            if remainingTime < 5 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(1,1,0,1) end
            if remainingTime < 3 then f[frameName][i].text:SetTextColor(1,0,0,1) end

    Works just how I like it, might look into making it better (colors and times configurable in UI) later on but for now i'm a happy druid :p

    That's what I like with WoW addons, you can easily make changes that fits your needs Laughing

    Anyway, I made a new version with some added functionality (coloring based on time, configurable decimal and some more). Will test drive it this weekend and publish it as soon as I'm fairly sure everything works as intended.

  • #49

    Ye, good suggestions. I hardly play wow myself anymore so don't spend much time updating my addons. But with that said, I'll try find the time in the coming few days and post an update. No promise though.
