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

    @ Lothrok i found that if your using CTBuffmod that it conflicts with Elkano thats why i got the normal buff frame aswell if ur using CTBuffmod either disable it or delete it from ur addons folder


  • #45

    I'd like to have a warning written to chat window when a buff is about to expire, that's about everything I miss from other addons, apart from that, this is the best buff bar by far.

    BOTTOMRIGHT) it just won't work properly after that reload. If I then do /ebb anchor BOTTOMLEFT followed by /ebb anchor BOTTOMRIGHT it will once again work properly.

    Oh, and the way you show poison charges... it's nothing short of fantastic. ;D

    what Gaysha said below!!

  • #48

    Anyone know how to stop the default buffs from showing? The buffs that show in the upper right hand part of the screen, blizzard default setting.

  • #146

    I got the problem with the latest dotimer. :(

  • #145

    This is most likely a problem with some other addon.

    Did you try to run EBB (+its libs in case you run disembedded) as only addon?
    It's possible that some other addon capable of replacing the buff display is turning their display back on since it isn't ordered to hide them.

    I'm having this problem too! Can anyone help please?

  • #142

    Anyone got a tip on how to remove the blizzard buffbars while using elk? I installed the latest version from wowace but still normal blizzard buffbars are showing aswell as the Elk ones...

  • #143

    just download the version released before the most recent - isn't bugged that one, atleast until the new one is fixed

  • #147

    Hey, I'm in the process of downloading the newest version and I was wondering if it fixed the bug where the bars would extend the length of the screen when they expired. This was especially bad on rogue poisons.

    I suppose it could be another mod I'm using, but I doubt it. It's not a big deal, I'm just curious.

  • #148

    Is it possible to "clutch" the buffs and debuffs together?
    So when I get a new buff, the debuffs move up a spot.

    Bit hard to explain :/

  • #149

    Please update for 2.3

  • #150

    Not working anymore on patch 2.3. It doesn't refresh the buff/debuff or whatever list, and doesn't show the time remaining correctly.

  • #151

    Update for 2.3 please =)
