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:

    Hey, MAD111CAT, Why are combopoints  with anticipation acting so weird? I've noticed that sometimes when I use a finishing move it doesn't update that I have anticipation stacks on my toon... It feels weird.


  • #310

    You can't use anticipation as combo-points. Dhud shows anticipation charges only when you have 5 combo-points on target.

    For example you have: 5 combo-points and 3 anticipation charges, then you decide to use "Recuperate" or "Slice And Dice" (This abilities do not consume anticipation charges) - you will be left with 0 combo-points and 3 anticipation charges. Game will not allow you to use this 3 charges as combo-points and since they last only 15 seconds you won't be able to use them at all (it's hard to do a finisher in less than 15 seconds without combo-points and energy).

    So what is your suggestion? If dhud will draw them when there is less than 5 compo-points it will only confuse the user (e.g. 1 combo-point and 3 anticipation charges will be drawn as 4 - but finisher will use only one combo-point).

  • #313

    Grey orbs that turn green when they will be usable as combo points?

  • #308

    Looking for a MetaHud replacement I stumbled about this and it first it looked nice
    BUT essiential stuff is missing: not showing how much aggro you have on a target
    and it neither shows the distance to a target - adding that and DHud could be a nice replacement...

  • #307

    Is there a way to hide specific buffs and debuffs from being tracked?

  • #304

    I really like this addon! But is there a way to have my Holy Power on the same side as the buffs-on-me? Being able to see both inquisition time remaining + HP charges would be nice. But even without that, I prefer this to the HUD I had been using.

  • #306

    Check layout tab, if you don't see required layout, you can change existing layouts by using notepad and opening one of the files from DHUD\layout\DHUD_Layout*.lua, this files contain only positions so it's not that hard to change them.

  • #303

    For DKs, the Blood Tap talent can change any rune into a death rune.  However, it seems to show the regular rune color, unholy for instance.  Is there any way it can track when runes are flipped to death runes?  Or am I misreading it?

  • #305

    As far as i know it changes rune color to death (purple) if it's available. I will check this talent later, but when i played dk runes changed colors correctly.

  • #302

    *THINK* I found a bug.  Turning the SHOWPLAYERBUFFS setting off for me disables the ability to click on the target for the player menu.  Duplicated this by reinstalling, reset settings.  Turning it off removes abiltity to pull up player menu from target text.  Turning it back on reenables menu.  BTW tahnks for the awesome addon.  Can't live w/o this!


  • #299

    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.
