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

    Funny, so bliz thought ahead, that whole thing about shift clicking a buff to put the name in the chat frame after a /cancelaura does not work it fires the blocked addon frame. And rightful so because after i read what you had said about the /cancelaura and shiftclick on a elk buff frame... it hit me well if you can do that no reason you could not do a runslashcmd function with a getbuffname and ultimately make it so when you click a elk buff frame it runs the /cancelarua buffname. Bliz already beat us to that idea though... shift-clicking and deleting the time does not work so of course the aforementioned idea also would not work... i had my hopes up for a moment though :)
  • #1511
    me either... I hadn't tested it before posting it here but there was no indication why it shouldn't work :/

    Yep, I just noticed this also. Since the change to add ranged/thrown weapon tench, I don't see poisons on any weapon now.
  • #1488
    Confirmed. Tench frame isn't showing poisons.
  • #1483
    I was wondering if placing secure buttons next to each buff in the buff frame would be possible. In that way, you could just click the button and cancel it's corresponding buff. Perhaps the buttons would have to be placed in a separate frame that attaches to the buff frame to get it to work.

    Anyway, it was just a thought I had. Not sure if it is even possible.
  • #1486
    Hmm, that's not a bad idea if it's possible. Could even then turn bar icons off and position/size the buttons where you could hardly see the difference from how they look already with icons.
  • #1478
    Anyone else not able to remove buffs when clicking them with this addon since yesterdays release? I have checked and made sure mouse disabled is not checked... I cannot click off buffs of any kind...
  • #1479
    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 :/
