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 want EBB 6.1 version.

  • #1958

    2.4.1 should be working fine with WoW 6.1 (besides the outdated TOC).

    When I loaded the addon, there is a buff that says Blessing of Demonst... 13m 37s. I get that it is so you can have an example to help set it up, but I was wondering if there is a way to remove that? I would rather there be nothing in the buff or debuff area when I have no buff/debuffs. Thanks

  • #1955

    This means that the group is in configuration mode (notice the small gears in the anchor bar). So simply disable configuration mode for that group and BoD will no longer show.

    You can do so either in EBB's options, in the data objects's tooltip (e.g. found on the minimap) or by alt-clicking a bar in that group.

    Thanks (:

    Since /ebb standby is no longer avail, may I please have the proper syntax to use as a macro command to toggle between different saved profiles?

    Thank you again for the amazing work on this addon

  • #1951

    For some reason I'm not able to configure bar groups (with all the drop down menus) to modify bar texture / colour etc. The golden gear/wheel thing is there but does nothing on clicking - anyone else have this issue?

    Been using this addon for years, and it's so clean an lovely that I was so glad to see it still going when I recently came back, however there seems to be one feature missing from the old version. How would I go about making sure that only the debuffs I cast appear?

    Is that simply a matter of whitelisting only my debuffs? I know it seems a simply question but I wanted to ask to make sure.

  • #1950

    Yeah, simply setting the selfcast filter to whitelist should do the trick.

    Sorry it took so long. The problem is that when there are other members of the same class they have the same dots etc. So it is better than having a raid full of DoTs to look at, but it is still impossible to know whose DoT is whose if you have four rogues in raid (me being a rogue of course lol)

  • #1946


    Thank you for this awesome addon!

    Pre 6.0 to toggle between two diff gui settings I was able to use the command:

    /ebb standby

    but this now brings an error message of "standby - unknown argument".

    Is there any way to reimplement this command?

    Thank you

  • #1947

    This "feature" was part of the Ace 2 framework and never intentionally/officially supported by EBB; it just happened to be there. As a result, it's unlikely that it will return.

    Hey. I was wondering if you would be able to add in an option to hide all of the bars (or even just specific bars) while in a pet battle. I don't think it would be all that difficult since you probably can make it a hook to the PetBattleFrame similar to what kgpanels can do:

    PetBattleFrame:HookScript("OnShow",function() self:Hide() end)
    PetBattleFrame:HookScript("OnHide",function() self:Show() end)



  • #1963

    Please add a feature to hide durring pet battles. Love the addon! Great work!

  • #1942


    is there a way to show the bars with an deactivated anchor?

    Put the bars above my Unitframes and those only show in combat. i know the anchor is just a little thing, but as a cleanui freak those little things are what annoy me the most. :(

    I hope there is a way and that i'm just to dumb to figure it out, since i just stumbled upon your addon and i really like it a lot.

    Best regards
