About DHUD for 6.0

DHUD is a highly configurable and customizable HUD addon in the spirit of DHUD, MetaHUD, and others designed to keep your focus in the center of the screen where your character is.

What it is

Player and target health and mana bars, casting bars, pet health and mana bars, druid mana bar in forms, bars with alternative power, spell circles with short player auras, target self auras and cooldowns, extensive target info, and much more.

Short feature list

  • Health Bars are able to display shields, heal absorption and incoming heal effects.
  • Class-specific tracking such as combo point counters, druid mana trackers, Eclipse bar, Holy Power monitoring, warlock alternative resources tracking, and more
  • Lots of DogTag-supported strings for extreme customizability (strings are parsed only once so it won't take much cpu time)
  • Alpha settings for in combat, target selected, etc.
  • Fully customizable bars and counters capable of tracking buff/debuff applications on any unit, spell/ability cooldowns, and the health/mana of any unit you specify.
  • Highly configurable (can totally re-arrange all bars, change text display, etc.)

Slash commands

  • /dhud - opens the configuration UI to tweak any setting
  • /dhud settings <settingName> = <settingValue> - to change setting using command line

Recent changes

  • Addon code have been rewriten and uses OOP design. Cpu and memory consumption is reduced
  • Code is documented and easily readable.
  • Added new features:
  • Health bars are now able to display shields, incoming heal and absorbed heal.
  • Numbers are now truncated if enabled in settings
  • Cooldowns can be shown like it's done with auras
  • Auras whitelists, blacklists and priority lists
  • DHUD Settings addon is also rewrited to support new code
  • And more


If you want to support the addon development tell about it to your friends, the more users will use it - the better. I will update it more regularly as it become easier for me to maintain addon after full rewrite.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: AddOn DHUD attempted to call a protected function (CompactRaidFrame...) during combat lockdown.
  • A: DHUD addon doesn't call any protected functions. Blizzard code can taint itself even without any addons loaded. Good article on this topic:

    as a warlock next to my mana, i have a tiny bar, thats 25% filled and purple. idk what it is, i cna't remove it and its there even tho i have no pet.


    edit: i think thats supposed to be my pets mana, but since my pet doesnt use mana and uses energy is weird. not to mention the mana is only 25% which is even more weird. (i can't remove it either)

    It displays warlock's demonic fury resource, I'll look further into it on the weekends, seems that your specs have various resource systems. I've leveled my warlock only to level 10, and didn't have alot of time to test it.

  • #301

    ah i see. well it displays for every spec as of right now. demonic fury is only for demo locks.

    I've added monk chi. Sorry for taking it so long, but i really didn't have much time.

  • #298

    Thank you!!!

  • #297

    You, sir, are a god.

  • #295

    I just created a ticket for the missing Monk Chi support.  I am looking forward to it being added soon.  Thanks!

  • #294

    Any ETA on implementing the tracking of Chi for Monks?


  • #293

    Nice addon man! Would it be possible to add Anticipation combo pts for rogues? So I can see how many Anticipation points I have before I make my finishing move. (They could be black bubbles with numbers in them)

  • #292

    Having issue with the profile support.  Everytime I go on a different toon, or new toon, and copy the settings, the settings don't copy and it stays as the default settings.  This has never worked for me in any incarnation of dhud, any thoughts?

  • #289

    I love this hud, but am feeling the lack of Monk Chi (like DK Runes).  Any word on when it'll be added?

  • #290

    I will add them as soon as I ding my main to level 90 :)

  • #291

    You mean... you're actually letting yourself enjoy the game instead of spending day and night slaving over user requests?  Mind.  Blown. :-)  Good luck dinging 90, and not only because it serves my own purposes. :-)

  • #287

    getting that error while in combat, msg as it's shown by bugsack:

    [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "DHUD" tried to call the protected function "CompactRaidFrame11:Show()".

  • #288

    Seen this error few times too, but it not always reporting DHUD addon, and DHUD have nothing to do with raid frames. Investigation to this problem will probably take huge amount of time, which I don't have now. If someone knows solution to this problem (simillar to Glyph's error) I will appreciate the help.
