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.


(Thanks to Zelmaru)

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).

Fixed possible infinite loop in minimapicon layouts menu.

    I'm having a tough time getting my partner's pet's to show up on my grid while in arena despite having enabled the 5man layout with pet option. Is this a known issue? Is there something I should be doing differently?
  • #531
    Absolutely loving this mod so far. Really the only thing I wish it had is sorting by name since currently there's only group or role. I saw the freelayout addon, but I'd much rather not have to drag people around every time I enter a new raid/bg. Any chance sorting by name could be added at some point please?
  • #529
    Am I right that Grid has been discontinued and this is the fully new version? Want to try it for my priest and dont know much about addons
  • #533
    Grid2 and Grid are different addons with different developers. Try both and choose the one that best suits your needs.
  • #530
    Or what is the difference between Grid and Grid2?
  • #526
    I'm having some difficulty with the raid frames on Nefarion. My raid leader splits our raid into three groups so we can split up onto the pillars. However, in 10 man raid configuration, the third group doesn't show up. If I try to switch the configuration so that it will show up, I have to use "25man with tanks". I dont' want the tanks to show up, and I don't want all the extra background space. Is there a way to just make the 3rd group show up on that encounter? Thanks.
  • #527
    You can edit GridLayoutLayouts.lua, and add raid10 = true, in "By Group 15" layout (line 167), the modified part must look like this:

    Grid2Layout:AddLayout("By Group 15", {
    meta = {
    raid10 = true,
    raid15 = true,
    pvp = true,

    About the Grid2 stop showing the unit frames:
    The problem must be fixed in version r619.
    Thanks for the reports.
  • #524
    I can confirm Grid2 is now showing again (with SunnArt).

    Thank you for the quick update. I really appreciate it.

    Hello, I'm having a problem grid2 and SunnArt. Both addons had been working fine until the recent SunnArt update (v3.54). Since then Grid2 stop showing its unit frame. I made clean copy of WoW client (no wtf, no cache), and only installed grid2 and Sunn - ViewportArt. It still doesn't display grid2 unit frame. Reload UI, relog, restart the client didn't fix this problem.

    No LUA error on start up, but I could capture error message from test mode.

    I already contacted Sunn ViewPortArt author, but could you also take a look into it for what might be causing the issue?

    Thank you.
  • #522

  • #525
    the latest grid2 fixed this problem.
