About Elkano's BuffBars

EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.

Due to changes Blizzard made with WoW 4.x it's no longer possible to cancel buffs without the use of secure frames. Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version.

Version 2.x is a total recode based on the Ace2 framework which became necessary in order to support some of the longtime wanted and suggested features. It's now possible to show different groups of bars which can be configured in many ways. Each group can be assigned an individual look and filter settings. EBB can be configured via a dropdown menu which is accessible via chat (/ebb config), FuBar plugin or (for the group settings) by right clicking the groups anchor. After setting up a group, its anchor can be hidden by alt-left clicking a bar or the anchor itself in order to lock the group in place.

In order to get additional bar textures and fonts for EBB simply install SharedMedia which is available for download under

    i really like this Addon but after i tested it on MoP im rally worried if there is an version out that i can use on the release. Did u work on it or do u need some LUA errors?

  • #1766

    Would love to see a 5.0 version of this amazing addon!

  • #1765

    Are you going to update this addon to MoP?  I almost can't play the game without it. =P

  • #1764

    is there any way to show only my debuffs on target? i want to track rupture on the target, but its showing a bar of every rogue's rupture on the enemy

  • #1762

    I'vegot a question as to how to get this addon to show the amount of time left in minutes and seconds with just the icon showing because I did it before and now that I'm getting back into wow I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it like before.

  • #1763

    Just set the topleft text to show time left and the topright text to hidden.

    Really need to be abl to click off my buffs.  Need update or suggestion on how to fix.  Anyone?

  • #1760

    Apologies for being a noob but what do I have to do about "Secure Frames" in order to click OFF buffs? Please help

  • #1759

    Love this add on. I love that i can set new groups and show what I want only for that group. I love the customization options. I wish there was a better interface to work with though. I found out that the only way I can bring up the anchor for group 3 is by typing /ebb config then going into group 3 and showing the anchor then hitting escape then moving it around then close the anchor then test it on a dummy then if it was off I had to repeat all of that to move it a centimeter. Anyways still love this mod and it works great.

    "Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version."

    When is this later version? This is a huge problem for me. I don't want to type: "/cancelaura blabla" infight...

  • #1755



    Great addon. 

    But I have one question. Is it possible for you to add an option to show the timers of the buffs/debuffs in fractions of a second? like 12,50 sec or something like that?

    They are fights (like Ultraxion) where I want to push the button under 1 second...and I don't have to time it in my head.

    Please god, give this one an update! :(


    :) Ive updated the .toc and it works fine, but yes please Elkano, an official update would be nice - ive used this on all my toons, it seems like forever - couldn't live without it :)

  • #1753

    It has always been my policy not to do TOC-push only "updates" and sadly I still didn't have time to get much work done with EBB3. So until there is something broken, don't expect an update, "load out of date addons" still does the trick.

    I'm having a problem where I can't right click a buff on the buff bar to cancel a buff while in combat. It works fine once a break combat. This becomes a problem when I want to break out of ice block early or drop righteous fury on my pally so the off tank can grab a boss.

  • #1748

    If you usually right-click your buff to remove it, you can use a simply macro to do that.

    #showtooltip Ice Block 

    /cancelaura Ice Block

    /cast Ice Block

    First click cast Ice Block, second click remove it. Good game.
