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

    Is there a way to get more buffs and debuffs into the addon's database? There are a lot of raid debuffs that I want to place in a special group but the addon only seems to let me select buffs or debuffs that i've had on me during the current play session. Thanks.
  • #1693
    This has to be one of the best designed, most intuitive and robust addons I've ever used. Thank you, Elkano.
    I still haven't found how to create a new group that only displays selected debuffs on the target but I'm sure there is a way.
  • #1694
    create a new group, set the target to target, set the type filter to debuff and then whitelist the debuffs you want to see (once you've seen them)

    ive downloaded, reloaded, uninstalled and reinstalled the addon and its still not loading, i dont know what to do now
  • #1690
    How do you anchor a bar (for example, the debuff bar) to the bottom of another? (For example, the way it comes when you first install it, as your debuffs move with your buffs)
  • #1691
    just move the group there and release, it should snap then.

    Need fix I cant find another addon to replicate this so easy.
  • #1687
    update plz k thx bye
  • #1686
    Please update this addon to 4.1. I miss it too much!
  • #1684
    First I have to say, it's a great AddOn.
    But I also have a problem. I switch off the minimap icon by mistake and I dont know how to remove it, can anyone tell it me?
  • #1683
    Remove "Blessing of Demonstration"
    File: EBB_BarGroup.lua
    Comment out the addition for the fake buff
    300: if self.layout.anchorshown and #data
    301: table_insert(data, DATA_DEMO)
    302: end
    300:-- if self.layout.anchorshown and #data
    301:-- table_insert(data, DATA_DEMO)
    302:-- end

  • #1708
    2.3.1 finally has a way to have the anchors showing without putting the group into configuration mode. Enjoy :)

    ty for this simple fix, I like my anchors but hated that "Blessing of Demonstration" bar there.
  • #1682
    I totally understand the problems with removing buffs in combat - but are there other reasons to skip this addon? I removed it back when but want to give it another go... I hate those icons, I need text.
  • #1681
    don't know if this is a bug or my lack of kowledge. but is there a way to show you being mounted on a mechano-hog in the buff bars?
