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

    Dude love your mod, it's very neat and simple to use. If there any plans to include pets debuffs? like a Pet Buffbar just below the character? that would be nice!

  • #58

    Hi, I'm trying to find out which command will make the bars grow upwards, if there is'nt can you maybe make one ? Thank you.

  • #57

    @jfkaess: next major release will support that ^^ but since it's a totla recode, it will still take a while @whtwskr: did you have a look at Chronometer?

    This is the best buff timer mod available, and I wanted to thank you for designing it.

    I was wondering if maybe, just maybe, you'd ever think of doing a spell timer mod with the same format? Those are few and far between with the ones available being not so streamlined.

  • #55

    Just started using your mod afte abandoning all CT mods. Its great, but i'm wondering ig it would be possible to just show the icon with no text and also show the timer, then adjust the width doen under 100. That gives me all the info I need, and takes up less space.

    Thank you for the WoW 2.0 update. I was getting worried it might not be updated.  ;)

  • #53

    well, 2.0. would have broken it, but releasing it before patch day would surely have caused some "new version doesn't work" posts ^^

    Yeah, I think it was just the lack of "refined code for XYZ" that most mods get. But hey, yours wansn't broke so why fix it? =)

    Either way. 3 Cheers for updating.

  • #51

    well, it wasn't broken before so there wasn't much need to update :) But I would be stupid to not update it for 2.0 since so many people like it :)

    To think I thought this wasn't being updated so I just removed it from my fav's and downloaded another buff bar mod =)

    Just had to be the first to get a comment in on this sweet mod

  • #2

    Great Addon!!!!!! Realy Nice

  • #3

    Very nice.

    I'm having trouble getting rid of the old buff icons. Can anyone clue me in on how to get rid of the old buff icons? Currently, both Elkano's BuffBar and the original BuffBars are on my screen.

  • #4

    are you running any mds like MoveAnything or those of it's kind that allow you to move and hide frames? That could be the reason.

    Been enjoying this thing from back when it was just a gypsy hack but one thing, now that it's under support thats in a place I can find: Could you add the option to remove the time?

    And is there any reason for the height restraint being a min of 20? (I run the version I have at 14 with no perceptable issues/overlaps/etc)
