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

    Is there any way at all to remove the "Blessing of Demonstration"? I try to filter it out, or right click it to make it go away, but it isn't listed on the filters at all, nor will it go away when I right click on it.

  • #110

    well, that list is shown via DewDrop. It will be at most as long as your screen allows and then scroll. Also the list will only show buffs that either have settings or have been seen this session so it shouldn't be that large.

    Just 1 word: AWESOME! Exactly what i've been looking for. Everything highly configurable, good looking and low memory usage.

    But only 1 thing that's annoying: When editing the Buffs, the list is very long. How about making 2 rows? I fear if the List gets too long that i can't setup the bars anymore because its bigger than my monitor :P

    Ein Wort: Geil! Genau was ich gesucht hab, alles einstellbar, sieht toll aus und braucht wenig Speicher. Nur eine Sache die extrem nervt: Wenn ich die Buffs editiere, ist die Liste verdammt lang. Wie wärs wenn man eine 2. Spalte einführt oder so? Ich vermute, dass die Liste irgendwann so lange ist, dass man nicht mehr alles einstellen kann, da die Liste länger als mein Monitor ist :P

    Why aren't people reading at least the description before asking... "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."

    @ Foxfire you can uncheck option "show anchor" and bars will be locked

  • #105

    Can you add a lock Funktion for the Bars ? I mean a Function, that make bars not movable.

  • #104

    What is the difference between Elks BuffBar (r26541 @WoWAce) and Elks BuffBars (r39466 @WoWAce)?

  • #103

    it would be cool if you could incoperate this into a box and just be able to scroll threw it with your mouse wheel instead of having like half the screen filled with buffs. L o V e the mod

  • #100

    rly like this addon however i was woundering if u cud make it availavle in different colours? the blue overlay is nice its just it stands out alot as the rest of my ui is all black. Great work though ^^

  • #99

    Is there a way to make profiles with different toons ? If not you should think about doing that, its really handy if you keep your buffs in different places like i do.

  • #98

    Is there a way to add a nice pretty border around the buff square?

  • #97

    can you separate debuffs from buffs?
