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

    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)

    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)

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

    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

  • #1943

    The anchor bar only shows while the corresponding group is in config mode (i.e. movable; gears showing) or if the option to always show it is active.
    So try to alt-click a bar in that group or check the settings :)

    Thank you so much for the quick reply and showing everyone here what an stupid Oaf i am .

    but i can live with that.  :D

    Thanks again!!! ^^

  • #1938

    I dont know why but on my DK and Feral druid I dont see their dots/diseases in the white list (rip, rake, frost fever, ...). Are those classes not supported ?

    Thx in advance (and sorry for my bad english ;))

  • #1939

    Like I wrote one comment below, too, you need to have seen the (de)buff this session for it to show up in the lists.

    Are you sure you've seen it THIS SESSION? E.g. go attack a target dummy.
    Works fine for me.

    Its the case, I have played a lot of hours with EBB on my dk/feral et the debuff dont show :(

  • #1935

    Is there any way to modify the Whitelist? I created a custom bar for my frost mage in which I would like to display my current IF stacks and the remaining duration of my Icy Veins and Time Warp. The IF stacks work great, but unfortunately Icey Veins is not an option in the whitelist configuration and I don't see any way to add it there.

  • #1936

    If you had the buff during that play session it will show up.
