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

    Nevermind.. white-filtered aspects + white-filtered self cast buffs. Now it only shows aspects that I have casted, so the mage won't ever see it.
  • #470
    Again I can not take of buffs such as path of ice I must wait for it to wear off please help so i can clean up my ui a bit.
  • #469
    I've got a question..
    Is there a way to split the buffs into columns?
    For example, I have my buffs listed down the right side of the screen (under minimap), but when the list gets too long it begins pushing the buffs up into the minimap to make room for the buffs at the bottom.
    I can split into columns with Satrina's, but I prefer your addon (easier to filter/order buffs).

  • #468
    I have a problem with an addon, I unintentionally took the symbol of
    addon in the mini map, and now can not access the options that addons. there is some
    way to get a reset options in the addons and so I can start to adjust again?
  • #466
    New question: Is there a way to set it to show backgrounds for buffs with a duration, but not show the background for timeless buffs?
  • #467
    Oh, and I'm also interested to know if there is a way to give buffs a blue border like the debuffs have a red one.

  • #465
    Randomly upon targeting and attacking.

    This is just a piddly little issue, but I would like to use the default timer format (ex. 6h or 53s). However, that space inbetween the numbers and the letter is atrocious. It looks like...

    6 h
    53 s

    ...just really annoys me.

    Also, in your minimalist screenshot, there appears to be a boarder on all the icons. Is that a feature in this mod that I missed?
  • #464
    The border is most likely the debuff border though I wonder why the color seems to be wrong...
    default format is what Blizzard provides, so blame them ^^

    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.
