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

    This is an issue affecting all addons that needs to be adjusted on Blizzard's side.
  • #1477
    Thank you for your work in this amazing addon. I have some different groups with black/white lists and buff filters etc. After updating from version 151 to 153 i've lost all my config. I've tried with diferent profiles but they all dissapeared. If I reinstall 151 it works again. Must I configure all bars again to make it work? Thanks again and sorry about my english.
  • #1482
    I have the same issue, when I change to r153 all the groups in my setup are gone. as a result I have to use an older version :(
  • #1481
    Take a backup of the config file and then remove everything with Tracking in it. Worked for me.
  • #1480
    this is strange... it should have kept the old settings :/

    names_exclude" as DaWicked said. Thank you all.
  • #1489
    Can you tell me which file (new or old) and which lines?
  • #1491
    C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\\SavedVariables\ElkBuffBars.lua

    Search "tracking" text and delete all lines between brackets (include traking itself) i.e. text to remove:

    ["TRACKING"] = { ["blablahblah"] = true,
    ["blablablah"] = true,

    Aaaah, thank you so much for updating. Had to use CT_BuffMod for a few days, which is a poor replacement.

    So nice having EBB back. Kudos!
  • #1474
    Sorry for posting this if it's obvious or already been asked but can anyone tell me why Curse Client wouldn't be updating this for me to version 2.3.0 r153 ??

    For some reason its still telling me 2.2.5 r150 is the most up-to-date version.

  • #1475
    it's the difference between alpha, beta and release ^^

    r150 was latest release, r152 latest beta, r153 latest alpha

    I'am missing the buff for poisoning the throwing weapon as a rogue. Thank you very much.
  • #1469
    Since there is multi tracking now ... still having your tracking bar would be nice. Just have it say something basic like "Tracking". When people right click it will show which tracking types are available. And which ones are active. Thus allowing us to keep using EBB for it and not see the ugly default blizzard circle =)
  • #1463
    just a stupid question ;)

    I think you can read out the name of the buff if you rightclick it on the EBB. Just only the Name of the buff.. the cancel function was disabled by blizzard, I know.

    But isn't it possible, that you use the command /cancelaura buffname to cancel buffs on rightclick ? I tried yesterday and the command /cancelaura still works.

    Maybe you can put it into your addon
  • #1466
    since EBB's code doesn't run within a secure environment this isn't possible either. I'm currently looking into showing a secure button in the center of the screen when you right click a buff out of combat that will cancel it if clicked on. You can also shift left click a buff to get its name (and time... you can delete that part then) into the chat edit box for use with /cancelaura
