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

    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

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

    This posting is made of 100% recycled electrons.
  • #1685
    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?
  • #1680
    Well Known Issue: "blessing of demonstration xxiii"
    Elkano - fix it, please ;)

  • #1678
    would it be possible in a future release to color code buffs that can be dispelled?
  • #1677
    I've confirmed with a couple other former EBB users that it's true they can no longer be clicked off in combat with ElkBB. Apparently it has to use the new "SecuraAuraHeaderTemplates" in order to be able to right-click it off in combat, but that comes with some ordering limitations. Here is an addon that does it..

    Raven is another alternative to EBB which has a crafty, if somewhat cumbersome solution to clicking off buffs in combat... a configurable "in-combat window" to click off buffs.

    Great addon would love to use it but doesn't seem to cooperate with "tattoo" addon nto sure which addon or both needs the fixing but please hook it up so i can get this bad boy thanks :)
  • #1675
    First off let me say thank you fro this addon. Great work.

    But I have two quick questions for you. Is there any way to change the font on all the bars at once? I have 7 groups up and it is a pain to change the font on each, one at a time. There are 5 separate font settings per group, so thats 35 settings I have to change.

    Also I play a lock and was wondering if there is anyway to separate my dark intent 30 minute buff from the stackable buff that I get when my target crits. They both have the same name so I cant just white filter as far as I know.

    Ty for any help on this and keep up the good work :)

    Note: Ace2 is deprecated and will not be developed any further! It is officialy at End-Of-Life.

    For new projects, use Ace3 instead. For old projects, we suggest porting them to Ace3, or looking for alternatives.

    Love the addon but are you gonna make it work on ACE3 ??
  • #1671
    long time EBB user... I've found that since cata I can't seem to right-click a buff line to remove the buff. Is there possibly some setting? Do other people have this issue, or is it possibly some bad addon interaction?
