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 http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/sharedmedia.aspx

    Fixed TimeScale:

    Have you thought of giving a bar group an uniform fixed time scale and only displaying the last x seconds as a decreasing bar. I find that visually more helpful than a bar with 3s of 6s left being longer than a bar with 25s of 240s.

  • #1909

    This is already somewhere on my "planned features" list, but no time estimate on implementing it...

    so frutstrating, why do you have to get rid of blizzard's buffs at the top of the screen?

    would be exactly what i needed if you didnt do this.

    i guess i need to make my own.

  • #1901

    Or just use the option to disable hiding of those...

    Hi Elkano,

    Thanks for this great mod - have been using it in my UI for years! I was just wondering if you had intentions to have this updated for WoD?

    Thanks again!

  • #1898

    Since I'm using it myself, I intend to keep EBB 2 working with WoD.
    Regarding EBB 3, not much to tell... lazy as ever :/ (SecureHeader and raid buffs are working, classic group with filters and sorting still need lots of work... not talking about the whole options UI...)

    Great to hear!  :)

  • #1896

    Is it possible to show Buff icons horizontally?  I'm seeing conflicting info on this.  I can't find how to do it, but it should be a simple feature. 

    Ideally I'd like a blizzard-like buff bar for the long term buffs, then a more detailed/larger frame for the shorter ones. 

  • #1895

    Please please please fix the problem with canceling Buffs infight!!!!!!!!!

  • #1891

    Hey, how can i cancel a Buff infight? When i try to cancel a Buff out of fight there's no problem. But infight it doesent work.

  • #1893

    Just activete that wow load older addons

  • #1892

    Sadly, being able to cancel in combat isn't compatible with the filters and sorting of EBB.
    It requires use of the SecureAuraHeader, that provides only a very limited subset of the filters/sorting.

    If you know which buffs you intend to cancel during fight, you can however create makros for that using /cancelaura

    "SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version."

    Will this be coming in WoD maybe?

  • #1889

    Anyone got a replacement? Doesn't work for me on 5.4.7...

  • #1890

    still working fine over here... but a simple "doesn't work" is nothing I can aid you with...
