About SexyCooldown

Upgrade Notice

Users upgrading from versions prior to 0.6.6 will lose any aura blacklist settings. A change was made to aura identification to resolve conflicts with skills such as Sacred Shield. Please re-blacklist any auras you aren't interested in after upgrading.


SexyCooldowns is a logarithmic cooldown bar. What's that, you say? Well, most timer bars you're used to are linear. That is, the distance between 0 seconds and 10 seconds is the same as the distance between 50 seconds and 60 seconds. A logarithmic cooldown bar is somewhat different - it represents cooldowns on a compressed timeline, so that cooldowns that are closer to being ready are represented as more active on the bar. This lets you represent a large amount of data on a single bar, and have it remain useful.

In short, SexyCooldown is a single consolidated timer bar for all your spell, pet's spell, item, and proc cooldowns, as well as buffs, debuffs, and totem timers. It's very flexible, and can be customized to fit into your UI as best you see fit.


  • Spawn as many bars as you want, and show the specific information you want on each.
  • Supports spell and talent cooldowns, explicit and internal item cooldowns, buffs on you, debuffs on you, and debuffs on your target or focus.
  • Very highly configurable look and feel. Build bars that will fit into any UI.
  • Bars may be oriented horizontally or vertically, and move in either direction.
  • Extensible - can support virtually any kind of timer. Currently works as a cooldown, buff, and debuff timer, but the possibilities are endless.


Here you can see that I have set up three separate bars, one for my cooldowns at the bottom, one for short buffs on me (<45 seconds) above my unit frame, and one for my debuffs on my target above the target unit frame.

    Isn't there any other logarithmic cooldown bar addon out there except the fanupdate and fortexorcist? Any suggestions?

  • #654

    This one:

    It includes logaritmic bar, buffs and cooldown pulse. I use this and it's awesome.

    Hi all again!

    If you have problem with this addon, try this version:

    Nothing changed, Its a fan update addon to MoP 5.1.


    1st: This verison dont have any problems with Vehice bars, tested in Ulduar and Malygos.

    2nd: If you want to add a spell to blacklist, use the CTR + Right click or SHIFT + Right click keys

    3rd: The Jade spirit enchant, like the other MoP enchants chaged the proc system to RPPM. Its mean, the enchant dont have any cooldown, only Real Proc Per Minute rate. If you lucky you can hold it up. Only the tailoring back enchants keep the old, ICD based system.

    4th: Harleybwr please list the disapeared abilities in WoW Interface with your addon list. Try my version and if you still have the problem, I will try to fix it.

    5th: About Resto druids: I only have problem with the Incarnation spell, becouse its changing ID under the spell duration. This spell disapear from the bar after 10-15 sec and coming back at when 2 mins left from the CD. But dont generate any lua error for me, and every other spell is working perfect. Tested today in LFR.

    6th: If you want to move the Splash Anchors, you can do it. Open the Options part, check the "Advanced Options", then go down. Under the "Horizontal Position" slider, there is a "Show Splash Anchor" button. If you push the button, the addon will show a green squre what you can move with your mouse. If you moved it to the right place simple close it with the "X" button on the right top corner :)

    Hello having a problem with blacklisting an item.  It says to right click on the icon to blacklist.  So I tried right clicking the icon on the bar.  Well it does not making it appear in the blacklist list.  Nothing happens when I right click it.  There is also this option about turning mouse sensitivy off or something and it says if you do this blacklisting will not work.  So I figured since it wasn't working maybe it was backward so I tried it with that option and had the same result. 


    Can someone help me or is blacklisting broken atm?

    Vehicle Bar bug during Malygos 10/25

    During an achievement run in the Eye of Eternity today, several of us had a problem with the vehicle bar never being displayed during Phase 3 when sexycooldown was enabled. We each  started disableing various addons and kept trying phase 3 until the vehicle bar was displayed. Turns out, Sexycooldown was the problem for all of us. MoveAnything was never enabled (this seems addon seems to have similar problems as well).  Your mileage may vary, but I thought it was worth mentioning since half of the people in vent were having this problem as well. Hopefully this can be fixed. Thanks for a great addon, it is truly sexy.




  • #645

    Same problem! Caused a wipe :(

    Love the addon tho. I hope dev continues to iron out these bugs.

  • #643

    Is it possible that you can config that the icon splash can be moved? i want it in the middle of the screen instead now it is to my left side of the screen.

    Otherwise this is a great addon! 

  • #642

    Sexycooldown is causing a bug with vehicle bar in raid combat/dungeon combat where the transition to vehicle bar keeps repeating(making the vehicle bar pulling constantly)

    Anyone knows how to fix this as it's important for a raid please!

    I've been getting the following from time to time. 

    4x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "SexyCooldown" tried to call the protected function "MultiBarLeft:Show()".
    !BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
    <in C code>
    FrameXML\MultiActionBars.lua:60: in function "MultiActionBar_Update"
    FrameXML\ActionBarController.lua:160: in function "ValidateActionBarTransition"
    FrameXML\ActionBarController.lua:127: in function "ActionBarController_UpdateAll"
    FrameXML\ActionBarController.lua:53: in function <FrameXML\ActionBarController.lua:42>

    I'm playing as a resto druid and none of my spell cooldowns are shown (wild grwoth, innervate, ... nothing). only if i deselect the "My Spells" option in event types and select it after that again, the addon will show my current cooldowns.

    all the other cooldowns (trinkets, items etc) are shown properly. am I missing some things or...? ^^
