About BuffBroker

Disclaimer: I am unlikely to have Buff Broker functional before September 25th :(

I'm willing to share, mentor, or hand off maintenance to a willing add-on developer. Leave a comment or private if you're interested in this! I have 8 years programming experience, combined with 3 years teaching in a professional capacity... this would be a great opportunity to learn some LUA ;)

"Buff Broker: It lets you mash butan for buffs. No matter what class you are. or what group you're in. You just mash a button and everyone gets the right buff"*

  • Quote: Psychonaut (TB)

What does it do?

Buff Broker manages your group & personal auras. Be it Blessings, Totems, Shouts, Horns, Marks, or Power Words; your Paladin, Priest, Shaman, Warrior, or Druid; Seals, armors, stances, forms, or fires; installing this addon will help match your best buffs for your group, and help keep those buffs active on you and your party.

Buff Broker is uniquely adaptable to your current party. It is friendly with other players; it will not poach their buffs (although it might poach their assignments); it will not get confused if your buffs are poached; it understands talented vs untalented buffs; it will properly suggest you upgrade from single to class/raid wide buffs. Finally, yes, it does work.

Each time you click the main button, it performs the next best suggestion (cast <spell> on target/class/raid).

    was just wondering if there was going to be a mop update or a suitable replacement .. love the addon

  • #203

    Any chance of an update for Mists of Pandaria?

  • #204

    There's always a chance!  Probably not before MoP release, though, since I lack the time :(

    There are ~4 changes left to work with the new API.  After that, all the lists of spell IDs need to be re-grouped.  The first task takes some LUA savvy;  the second is about as complex as updating an excel/google spreadsheet.

    I'm offering to coach willing volunteers through the update process, but, no takers yet.

    Would love to give you a hand but sadly I have no experience & no knowledge on how to code. I understand the time issue & thank you (and all addon authors) for the time & effort they put into these addons.

  • #202

    I love this add-on. I hope it is updated for 5.0.4 and beyond!

  • #201

    Using version 5.02B and got:

    Message: BuffBroker-5.0.2B\Constants.lua:1854: attempt to call global "GetTalentTabInfo" (a nil value)
    Time: 09/04/12 04:50:08

    (*temporary) = <function> defined =[C]:-1

    So still a GetTalentTabInfo exists instead of GetSpecializationInfo

    Also got this when invited to party

    This update is not working for 5.0.4 and neither does the beta version.

  • #199

    One button to rule them all.

    Love this addon. I just wish it would work during combat.

  • #198

    Great addon, since we lost a resto druid in our raid people always fuss at me for not putting up Mark. A great feature would be if it would "recommend" the last seen druid form as the last buff. When I hit the button to Mark as Feral it changes me out of form, it would be great to be able to hit the same button to switch back.

  • #197

    As a 'lock, it'd be nice to have an addon that could find the most pertinent battleground ally to cast Dark Intent on.  And Soul Link needs to be added.


    Otherwise, looks like a great little addon.  Thanks!

  • #192
    Great addon, just work, which is what these things should do, I especially like that it takes into account personal preference, not insisting on a specific pally buff when you want something else.
    Any way you could implement profiles? I have 10 toons and had to separately configure each one to be the same (size, position, hidden, lock ui etc).
    Would be great to do it once then select the same profile on each one, especially if I decide to change something then I don't have to mimic that change on the other 9 again individually.
  • #193
    Update: 5/01/2011
    On my shaman after I dropped totems for the first time and then recalled them it is showing totem buffs as missing and wants me to recast them, I would think these should be ignored, no?
  • #194
    Totem's haven't been working; I haven't made time to play my shaman lately to troubleshoot :3

    Specifically, buff broker never enters "idle", even when you have all the right totems out. I'll try to get around to it :)
  • #195
    Actually, I would be more inclined to say that totems should not be observed or reported by Buffbroker, or at least just give an option to turn it off.
    I mean, a shaman knows to drop their totems when needed, I would not consider them permanent buffs to need to be reminded about.
  • #196
    In general, I agree; shamans are pretty good about dropping/moving totems. The only thing Buff Broker does for shamans is help pick & arrange which totems to use, on the call of earth(?) totem bar [Arranging on different bars, or to 3rd party addons, isn't supported at the moment]

    This was a feature I found useful on my restoration shaman, briefly...but not enough to keep it active through changing patches and frameworks :3

    If you don't find it useful, you can either disable Buff Broker for your shaman character; hide the addon on your shaman; or, disable the 4 totem types in the configuration.

    Thanks again for the feedback!
