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

    Yo. I could use some help. Before the patch I used this addon to make another bar with only my buffs- trinkets, combustion, icy veins ... but now I duno how to set it like that again because I get there all the buffs from other classes as well which means that I dont have one or two buffs there but ten and more. Is there a way to block the buffs from other classes exept by blacklisting them ?
  • #627

    did you update to the latest version? since with that, nothing should have changed wrt the usual behaviour (besides spells cast by your pets and vehicles being considered as yours, too)

    IS it possible to have a setting that would display your defuff using a different color ?

    I'm an Arms war trying to track my Rend debuff on a mob. Problem is as soon as as second warrior uses Rend on that same mob, there is no way to tell which Rend is mine (outside of remembering the duration)

    I'd really like to be able to track, MY debuff or having my debuff list as a different color.

    Thanks !

  • #619

    I have just started using this add-on. I noticed the first three groups are linked together. Is it possible to add a new bar to this link so I only need to move one anchor around the screen?
  • #620
    sure, just create the new group and move it close under the third group and it should stick there after you release it.

    Mangle - Cat still does not show up as a debuff to the target :(
  • #623
    Probably because it doesn't stack with Trauma (
  • #624
    don't have trauma up - no dps warr. I can see mangle on the target, just not on the buffbars.
  • #617
    Just a quick question. Trying to setup a bar to only show Sunder Armor and Expose Armor. I know how to create the bar, but the filters are kinda confusing me.

    1. Create the bar
    2. Filter to Debuff
    3. Change to "Target"
    4. Whitelist filter: Sunder Armor & Expose Armor

    I did this, but its not showing a debuff when one or the other is on the mob.

    Thx. not sure if this is event he place to ask these questions. sorry if its not.

    anything i can do to solve this?
