About ShamanBuffBars

This addon provides 2 seperate bars which contain both your self-weapon buffs (rockbiter, flametongue etc.) as well as your shield spells.


  • To move, hold down ctrl and drag with right click.
  • Compatible with all language clients of WoW (not tested though).
  • Keybindings are available in the GUIs.
  • There is an option in the weapon bar config menu to turn on auto-hiding of the bar. The bar will stay hidden most of the time, until your weapon buff expires, in which case it will show again until you recast one.
  • There is a similar feature for the shield bar, however since blizzard doesn't allow hiding or showing of bars during combat, instead of the bar physically disappearing, the relevant shield icon will change to indicate which shield is active, and go back to normal when the shield buff wears off.

To install, copy the ShamanBuffBars folder into your Addons directory.

For example: C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons/ShamanBuffBars

    Hi everyone. I've been a bit busy lately with getting my 10man guild going, as well as just having fun in the game myself. I don't play a shaman any more so if something doesn't work or has broken with a patch etc, feel free to post it here.
  • #29
    Updated for 4.0.0. Waterfall/DewDrop libs are broken so don't bother trying to use a config GUI at the moment, use text-based /sbb only. Integration into WoW's interface addon panel is in the works, as well as migration over to the ace3 framework and ButtonFacade support!
  • #28
    Both are fixed, thanks.

  • #26

    if you're dualspecced like me, you might have noticed that Earthshield doesn't show up after you've changed your talent build for healing. To change this add

    self:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_TALENT_UPDATE", "UPDATE")

    after line 582 in ShamanBuffBars.lua.

    If you're getting an error when clicking the minimap button or whatever then it sounds as if the syntax of the fubar lib may have changed (if I remember correctly it handles the minimap button also). If this is the case, everyone should really be having the same problem - I don't have an active account at the moment so I can only guess, but if you can paste the detailed error here (using some sort of error grabber like bugsack) I may be able to fix it.

    Not sure what happened...I had to recently had to re-enable all my addons for the recent patch (Thx for fixing the bugs by the way) but when I went to use buffbars to throw my stuff on, it was gone, I looked for the short cut button that's usually on my radar but it's missing. I have to type /shamanbuffbars every time I log on to activate and bring up the buffs. How do I get the button back? Also, when I first click the buttons to bring them back to the screen, a bug report shows up, I click cancel and click them again and it shows up. Anyone else having that problem? Let me know if this doesn't make any sense. I'll try to clarify. Thanks!

    Sorry all, I've been busy recently and unable to work on this - not to mention my account has expired. I've changed that value and uploaded it again so people don't have to change it themselves, thanks Rajani!

    I found a solution for the Watershield and Earthliving weapon bug. The addon seems to expect only 250 spells. When you hit level 79 and get the new Watershield you have more than that.

    To fix the problem you have to edit the file ShamanBuffBars.lua and change the number 250 in line 574 into a 300. That's all! :)
  • #22
    Fantastic. Fix works exactly as Rajani says. Thank you very very much!

    Has this mod been abandoned?
  • #19
    Still hoping for a fix for the Water Shield bug. :(
  • #18
    I only got the WaterShiled bug as I leveled 79. And the icon didnt disapear but instead shows the EarthSield icon. If I uncheck the WaterShield in the options one of the two displayed EarthShields disapears. I have the german client.
    I have an additional problem here. The earthliving weapon isnt displayed. I can Imagine it is a translation issue, as the options only give the english spell name there. Earthliving Weapon is in german " Waffe der Lebensgeister". I hope that this might help you finding the bug.
  • #17
    Any word on a fix for the Water Shield bug?
  • #16
    Anyway to add a counter on the bar that has all of the shields? One that shows how many charges you have left?
