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

    heh, well the space dosn't look like much on a post, but in game it's really a large distance between the number and letter.
  • #459
    It does not allow me to take off buffs some help please.
  • #457
    How do I make it show my own debuffs on the targets? When I whitelist Rupture or Deadly Poison, I see the other rogues in my raid debuffs as well.
  • #460
    just filter for self-cast.

    I am getting this error with an alt. Blood Elf, Pally, he's at level 20. The error occurs upon log in, as soon as the loading screen disappears.

    not a bug with EBB.
    EBB was just the first addon to load AceAddon-2.0/AceEvent-2.0.

    Is there a scale option? Or do i have to adjust text/height/width on all 3 bars manually?
  • #454
    Great addon! I'm just missing one thing, the option to set a limit to the number of bars. I'd like to keep an eye on my target's debuffs, but targetting bosses with like 30 debuffs fills up half of my screen.

    Please implement this function in the next release.

    Thanks in advance!

  • #449

  • #450
