About Marking Bar

MarkingBar is an addon to help players use raid markers in parties and raids. It is designed to be simple and easy to use, while offering a wide variety of options without taking up a lot of memory.


  • Quickly mark and unmark the current target by clicking the symbol you want to assign or remove.
  • Perform a party or raid Ready Check.
  • Perform a Role Check.
  • Announce your current marking system to party or raid chat. These messages can be customized through the gear icon or /mb options.
  • While in a party or raid, place the raid flare/world markers. Note: This cannot be done in combat, and the flares frame will automatically hide when you enter combat.
  • Each frame can be moved anywhere on screen and locked in place.
  • Frames can have the icon order reversed or be stacked vertically.
  • Frames can have the border and background completely hidden.
  • Tooltips can be turned on and off.
  • Tooltips can be turned on or off for announcement messages.
  • Show the frames all the time, or only while you have a target.
  • Show/hide the frames while alone, in a party, or in a raid group.
New BIG Features In Progress, Coming Soon:
  • New flare colors.
  • Keybinding options for all features.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and memory improvements.
  • Better options for turning on/off every aspect and fine-tuning when each part is shown.
  • Better options for changing the spacing and look of the frames.
  • (Optional) Data Broker integration.
  • User profile management between characters.
  • Ability to announce strategies to chat for Charms and Flares. (Current functionality is being totally revamped!)
  • Ability to link symbols for charms and flares to add directly to chat.
  • Ability to announce boss strategies and other custom messages to self/party/instance/raid group.

Slash Commands

  • /mb Brings up the options window
  • /mb options Also brings up the options window
  • /mb reset Resets MarkingBar to the default values and positions

Version 2.2.1

  • added new worldmarkers

Version 2.2.0

  • tag 6.0.2
  • positions stored in savedvars

Version 2.1.7

  • removed auto version check
  • code opt
  • tag 5.4.2

Version 2.1.6

  • tag for 5.4

Version 2.1.4/5

  • tag for 5.1
  • flares bar now the same size as marker bar at 100%
  • added auto version check (notify you when someone has a newer version, only when out of combat)
  • code optimization

Version 2.1.2/3

  • removed clear all markers until a solution is found to have it working 100%
  • added Role Poll
  • updated for 5.0.4 recommend to run a /mb reset if you notice strange behavior.

Version 2.1.1

  • Fixed an issues that was causing the "Clear All Icons" feature to crash when clicked repeatedly. Clicking this icon repeatedly is probably still not a great idea, but will no longer cause any game-crashing world-breaking issues. =)

Version 2.1.0

  • Fixed numerous bugs and conflicts.
  • Options frame now properly hidden during cinematics and while pressing Alt+Z
  • Clicking the options gear icon will take you to the MarkingBar Options. Right-clicking the icon will take you directly to the announce options.
  • A button to clear all raid icons has been added.

Version 2.0.4

  • Options interface has been updated to include options for the control frame
  • Fixed announcements conflicting with other chat addons, like Prat
  • Fixed a bunch of bugs where options weren't sticking

Version 2.0.3

  • Fixed taint issues hopefully once and for all. Users will no longer see "Interface action blocked because of an Addon" anymore.
  • The options interface has been integrated into the default Blizzard UI. You can still access the options from /mb or from the gear icon, but you can now also access the options by pressing Esc to bring up the Game Menu>Interface>Addons>MarkingBar.
  • More room to edit announcement text
  • New announcement line to add at the end of the marks
  • New announcement option to add a raid warning message when announcing in a raid
  • New option to add announcement messages to the icon's tooltips. This is especially useful if you can never remember what text you set up and what those pesky icons mean. =)
  • Added option to separate the announcement frame from the raid icons frame
  • The announcement options are now always visible
  • The lock icon for the main Raid Icons has moved from the announcement frame to the raid icons frame
  • World Marker flares are now always hidden in combat, since the ability to set them is protected by Blizzard and you can't set them while in combat anyway.

Version 2.0.2

  • Corrected errors in the chat announcement not displaying icons correctly for non-English versions of WoW
  • Added more show/hide options for solo, party, and raid
  • Corrected taint issue that was affecting some people
  • Updated version number

Version 2.0.1

  • Corrected errors with variables not being saved or remembered correctly.
  • Corrected errors with hiding when not in a party or raid. It will now detect a party or raid correctly.
  • Updated version number

Version 2.0

  • MarkingBar Initial Release

    this is a pretty useful addon.  i would love the option to hide the icon and options bars and JUST use the flares bar, and also to hide the lock icon.  any chance those can be added?

    does this addon have LDB support?

  • #134

    When I'm in a group it still shows, when I'm in raid it doesn't show, even though i have the raid box's ticket in options. Anybody else have same problem or am i missing something?
