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

    I've been trying to make two additional groups to easier monitor occasional buffs like Greatness, Unholy Strength etc. ans debuffs on my target. I've made the group, turned on Buffs (default) and White List under Filtering as well as marked the buffs in the White List. It doesn't work.

    I've tried tons of other stuff aswell, restarted WoW and basically everything I could think of.

    Is this a known issue or am I simply doing something wrong or is it possible I've got a corrupt version?

  • #638
    this is absolutely terrific. i was just wondering tho... is there a way to make it so that they can go from left to right as opposed to up and down?
  • #637
    hey there

    Is it possible to hide a bar(group) if you are out of combat? if not, would be great if you could implement that :)
  • #635
    Since EBB shows a tracking bar of its own, the minimap icon for tracking is hidden by default. Just disable its hiding in EBB's options.

    i'm trying to scale the buffs, all ok but the debuffs and spell stone or fire stone not scale, buffs 85%, debuffs and spell/fire stone 100%.

    i don't find the option (if exist), help me.

    sorry 4 my english, xD.

    I tried to config directly from the sample of addon and not from /ebb config.

    finished problem.

    and congratulations by your addon, is very good.

    I'm trying to incorporate this mod into a class timer mod but I see a few things that could be improved. I've traditionally used Rogue Power Bars for all class timer needs, and from that I would suggest allowing coloring on the "BUFF" bars as well as debuff bars currently instated. You could even allow customization of colors on individual buffs/debuffs. I was also let down when I found out that I couldn't track my target's debuffs as well as my own buffs on the same bar. (only buffs and debuffs on me OR buffs and debuffs on my target). Last but not least it would be nice to allow more sorting options...even as detailed as selectively choosing the sorting for each individual buff or debuff.

    can you add an option to remove icon border please :)
  • #628
    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

  • #630
    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 !
