About iFriends

Broker Plugin: iFriends

iFriends is an LDB plugin which provides pre-layouted columns to display much infos about both and WoW friends. You have the power to (re-)arrange these columns to that order you desire.

Requires an LDB Display Addon, f.e. Chocolate Bar!


  • Create your own tooltip style: almost every column has styling options!
    • Display column label
    • Justification
    • Display icon
    • Color
  • and WoW friends are displayed in different tooltips. You can hide the WoW friends permanently.
  • Supports all three factions: Alliance, Horde and Neutral
  • Displays the played game instead of realm names if your friend plays Starcraft orDiablo and colors the whole line either blue or red.
  • Also added support for Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and the Desktop app!

Requests, Bug Reports and Localization

  • Please use the Ticket System on CurseForge to report bugs, unintended behaviour, request for features, etc. I won't handle any kind of requests via comments on Curse anymore. Thanks.
  • I refuse to translate my addons with translators like Google since it feels wrong. If you can provide localized strings, please use the CurseForge localization tool.

    OK. I found out what was happening.

    I added friends to my friends list and the error went away.

    Even though I had RealID friends logged on it caused that error and would not display the Broker tooltip. As soon as I added a local friend everything went back to normal.

    So it appears the issue is related to an empty local friends list, but having RealID friends doesn't solve the empty list situation.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm getting this error. It started when MoP went live.

    I wonder if its happening now that the Panda race is in a data feed.

    Still seeing errors (on startup) in 2.0.7:

  • #32

    Yes I Know. This error is thrown by LibTourist. They are hard working for getting it mop ready.

  • #26

    Hey guys, I'm working on it. They changed a really important thing for iFriends in the Bnet API and I need to workaround it.

  • #29

    thanks for updating  ifriends!!

  • #27

    Cheers buddy, I really appreciate your work on it. This is one of my most vital addons :)

  • #33

    I will check it today. Thanks :)
    Hell, all plugins of mine were working in the beta without errors... :D 

  • #30

    I get this error: 

    .\AddOns\iFriends\Columns.lua line 156:
    attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'faction' (a string value)

    I have only 1 friend online right now. BattleTag friend.

    Using latest "release".

    EDIT: I'm using Bazooka and this error happens when I mouseover the plugin.

    Thank you, hope you enjoy the MoP version. :)

    BTW, I recently uploaded the fix for iFriends. It should work now. Please tell me if there still are errors - my local version works as intended. 

  • #25

    try changing line 252 in iFriends.lua to:

    pID, givenName, battleTag, isBattleTagPresence, toonName, toonID, client, isOnline, _, isAFK, isDND, Broadcast, charNote, isFriend, _, _ = _G.BNGetFriendInfo(i);


    looks like the function call changed:
