About Grid2

What is Grid2 ?

Grid2 is a party/raid unit frame addon.

Grid2 is fully customizable. New zones (indicators) can be defined in unit frames to display information (statuses). The indicators can be customized and placed anywhere. Grid2 supports several types of indicators: icon, icons, square, text, bar, multibar. You can configure what statuses are displayed on each indicator.

Grid2 includes a huge amount of available statuses, but not all enabled be default, look through the configuration and familiarize yourself with the available options and statuses.

Grid2 is fast: consumes between 4 and 10 times less CPU cycles than other similar addons.

To open the configuration UI type "/grid2", left-click the minimap Icon, DataBroker icon launcher or use WoW addons list window.

Grid2 components

Grid2 package includes:

  • Grid2
  • Grid2 Options
  • Grid2 Raid Debuffs
  • Grid2 Raid Debuffs Options
  • Grid2 LDB
  • Grid2 Aoe Heals

Grid2 does not work or I think I found a bug

  • Update to the latest versions of Grid2.
  • Make sure you downloaded the mods WITH libs. nolib is not for you.
  • Reset your Saved Variables, pasting into chat: /script Grid2DB = nil; ReloadUI()
  • If you still get an error, go ahead and log it. Install and use the BugGrabber and BugSack mods to record the error and make it easy to cut and paste it.
  • Then, Post a ticket. Check for existing tickets about your bug first. Remember to check back on your ticket later in case we need more information.

Common issues/FAQ

Grid2 Doesn't Load after Update

If you are updating Grid2 from r560 or older version, you must reset your saved variables (you will lose all your settings), you must see a message in chat window explaining how to reset saved variables.

Raid debuffs not showing up !!!:

Raid debuffs are not enabled by default. Go to statuses -> Raid Debuffs and enable at least the Cataclysm module (if you are inside a instance you must exit and enter the instance or reload the UI after enabling the module)

I cant push the grid boxes as close together as before:

The border indicator has 2 pixels size and it has a transparent background color now. If you want the old grid2 appearance. Goto Indicators -> border -> Layout tab: Set a border size 1. And select a black and opaque background color for the border.

What about mana bars ?

Grid2 supports mana bars, but they are not created by default. If you want mana bars, create a new indicator of type "bar", place it wherever you want and map the "mana" or the "power" status to it (remember you must map some color status to the bar:color indicator too).

What is the poweralt status ?

Poweralt status is a power type (like mana/rage/energy,etc). This power type is enabled by Wow in some combats. It shows: Atremedes sound, Chog'al corruption, etc. This status is not active by default in Grid2: you must map poweralt to any compatible indicator (text or bar indicator).

    Grid2 Arena Frames?

    Is there a way to set up Grid2 for Arena as a unit frame?  Like instead of Raids.... have it for Arena???

    Would be awesome.

  • #724

    Grid2 did not show any raid-debuffs when I raided Mogushan today, 25man.

  • #723

    First of all: great addon. I am very satisfied with configuration posibileties. 

    But I have a huge problem/bug. I spend few hours to configure all the stuff I need. After logout I couldn't open the configuration menu by typing /grid2 into chat. I type "grid2" and hit enter but nothing happens, my chat still shows me "grid2" in my chat-input. 

    After that I tried "/script Grid2DB = nil; ReloadUI()" and it looks like a hard reset, so I have to configure everything again. This is very frustrating. How can I save/load configuration settings? Is it possible to avoid this strange "bug"?

    EDIT: typo

    EDIT2: I've found out how to reproduce the bug. Where can i submit this information? If you type "/grid2" into your chat input box while you are INFIGHT, you will get this bug and can't open  configuration window anymore.

    Looks like the raid debuff modul is broken.

    During our Mogushan raid tonight no debuff showed up. No error message or wrong setup to help investigate the problem :/

    How to setup border-highlight on mouseover instead of target?

    I have found target-highlighting completely useless since I use Clique. I eventually do misclicks and mouseover highlight is VERY helpful thing. Thank you in advance.

    Is there any way to make the role icon populate automatically in LFR mode, without doing a role check? 

    Some mod or another scrambles my blizzard raid frame into uselessness, so its not possible to open it up and look to see who the tanks healers etc are. 

  • #718

  • #717

  • #733

    Solucion al problema de raid debuff en el Mop:

    Para los q tienen el Wow en Español, cambien el archivo que aparece en


    por el q les posteo aqui. Reinicien wow, y carguen dentro del juego los debuff segun la raid.

    Hay q cargarlos antes de entrar, sino tienen q salir de la instancia. Saludos

    with new version grid2, Raiddebuff not work again.

  • #715

    Is there a way you can show the remaining time of Riptide Buff on a person, like you can have with Sacred Shield?

  • #712

    Why not work on raid debuffs, and poisons, magic, curse make me see the icon? Can you solve it because there is no way to get them these icons appear during the fight against a boss. Thank you for your patience, waiting for a response

  • #711

    Not function Raid debuff. I dont see icon of debuff searing plasma and more

  • #710

    I cannot make Grid2 save my preferences. Boxes are black, all my settings reset when reloading or logging out, even default settings that were included by default per class (Renew, etc.) are gone.

    I made a new profile, set the changes and saved it, and on relog everything was gone again.
