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

    Awesome. I had played around with it but just didn't get all the setting right. Thanks a million.

  • #399
    Hi there, just a quick question for Death Knight "Presences", is there any way to display the active Presence/Aura as Buff-Bar?
  • #400
    If it would show in Blizzard's buffs it should also show in EBB. Other ways: No.

    How do I change the scale of the bars?
    There is not an option for this feature...
  • #396
    Hi, I may be being a total idiot, but the only bar I can see is my track humanoids bar when in cat. Combed through the options, made new bars, checked to see if it was on standby, and can't find a thing to make it work. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help!
  • #397
    Did you try to disable all other addons? if it will work then, it could be another addon messing things up.

    I was wondering if there is a way to change the bar timers for me to also show milliseconds as right now the lowest unit of time I have available are seconds. I have the latest version and can't seem to tinker with it to get it to show ms.

    Awesome mod and thanks a ton!

    I used Elks Buff Bars since now for buffs and debuffs of the target too.
    30 buffs or so
  • #392
    Hey Elkano, I am a big fan of this mod, been using it for some time now. :) I've got a question for you. Since 3.02 I have had an issue where I have to manually add each buff or debuff to the appropriate slot. Is there a way to set it so that they are automatically added?
  • #395
    Seems like you somehow activated the whitelist filter. Uncheck everything in that filter and it should stop to apply that filter.

    Somehow my buffbars don't wanna deplete.

    Hasn't depleting of bars been a feature back then? :/

  • #389
    I am having a small problem with this addon.

    If I set up "Track Low Level Quests" and then shift into Cat Form, it puts up Track Humanoids instead and I have to re-set Low Level Quests as an option. However, when I do this the buff still says "Track Humanoids" but the icon will change. This is mostly a minor annoyance and not anything game-breaking but I Thought I would report it nonetheless.

    I search how to show just my curses. i put in blacklist some debuff but if it's the same debuff but if it's the same debuff ? …

    also can you improve white and black lists ? acctualy if i disconnect before check or uncheck some new spells they don't apear in the lists. this lists is unlikely maybe a frame with scroll bar and sorting can be a great idea :-)

    Sorry for my poor english, i'm french
  • #388
    Since my French is even worse than your English, I'll stick to the latter.

    To only show the debuffs you put on the target do the following:
    - create a new group
    - set its target to TARGET
    - set its type filter to DEBUFF only
    - enable the selfcast filter

    That way the group will only show bars for those debuffs you cast.
    The white/blacklist is created on the fly as de/buffs are seen during a session. If you use the intended GUI via DewDrop the list should be sorted and scrollable, though.
