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

    Aswell, what I noticed but wasnt 100% sure if that was related to my mentioned bug is, that i.e. Looting laged pretty hard, aswell when an achievement poped up plus I had a few ~5 secs lagspikes.

    As said, extremely difficult to say if that was related, yet with 165 I had none of these issues either anymore. (my Latency is usually: 15-25 / 20-50 ... displayed)

    please update the addon to patch 4.2.
  • #1705
    Is there a way to cancel buffs while in combat? Without using a cancel aura macro of course. Like right click on a buff and it cancels.
  • #1706
    Currently, after Blizz' changes with Cataclysm, there is none.
    Problem is the restrictions of the secure frames needed to cancel buffs. That kind of frames can not be modified the way EBB needs them.
    Blizzard surely have to find a more suitable way to allow interaction without falling back to the ability to automatically cancel buffs via script.

    WTB an update!

    seriously, elkano, if u don't want to update your addon could you let someone else do it for you. there is a lot of people including me that need this addon.
  • #1703
    Seriously, there is no need for an update at the current moment.

    A pure toc update is like changing the expiration date stamp on a peace of meat.
    It doesn't change the content.

  • #1698
    Elkano, any chance of getting a toc update?
  • #1699
    I would definitely appreciate an update. Elkano, just tell us if it's coming sooner or later, or not at all. I just want to know if you're still planning on updating the addon, which I'm a fan of.

    anyone else think that this looks like DoTimer Buff frames :o
  • #1696
    Elkano is there any way you can update this addon? For some reason when I load out of date addons even 1, no matter what it is, I get mini fps spikes. Nothing huge but overall annoying. I havent been able to find a mod that I can customize as good as this, would much appreciate an update to this great addon.
  • #1695
    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.
