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).

    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


  • #716

    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.

  • #713

    AFAIK, this is the fault of WoW not being able to write to your disk. This is probably because you moved a copy of WoW from another computer.

    Check Permissions for your Wow Folder. Unless your other addons save as usual.

  • #709

    I have two requests regarding the excellent 'shields' status.

    1. Could we have multiple 'shields'-type statusses. Allowing for the seperate tracking of multiple shield-types? (Disc now has PW:S, Divine Aegis and Spirit Shell to keep track of).

    2a. Could we have an option to have these shield-statusses blink on a time-threshold instead of an absorb-left threshold... or 2b. (A different solution to the same problem) Could we have the option to have square-type indicators colored by a different status then the 'trigger'-status (this is already possible for bar-type indicators)

    This would allow the Disc-priest to have seperate indicators for all their shields showing the potency left on the absorb and when it's about to end. 

    Cheers and regardless: thanks for a great addon.

    EDIT: I also noticed a bug when tracking Spirit Shell  through the shields-status. On the priest, when the Spirit Shell casting buff ends (spellid:114908), the indicator will indicate the shield to be gone, even though the actual absorb aura (spellid:109964) is still active. I don't know if this is possible, but being able to use spellid's in the custom entry field would fix this.

    Logging into 5.0.4 almost all the status settings for all my indicators are reset. Is this a common error or a problem with the installation/conflict with another mod? In any case, If there is a fix for this I have a reserve copy of 4.3 WTF folder taken prior to updating. Any assistance is appreciated. 

  • #706

    Changes are also not being saved between sessions or betwee /reloadui. Really frustrating.

  • #707

    When I switch to a different profile, changes are saved through reloads and sessions. What is going on here?


  • #702
