About Shaman Friend

News: Druid Friend is now available!

Shaman Friend

This addon is designed specially for the Shaman class. It contains a lot of useful functions no matter which spec you are. I also have DruidFriend and PallyPowerWarn addons for those classes.

It should work with most languages, although translations depend on users providing them (see below).

Here are a few of the functions:

  • Remind/alert for Elemental Shields when fading or missing in combat (with sound support)
  • Show total Windfury damage with options to include advanced info: Crits, misses and which hand the procs come from If it procced of Stormstrike, the data from both hits are summed together and adds to the damage
  • Show a message when Lightning Overload procs, optionally together with total damage and number of crits
  • Separate frame allowing for easy Earth Shield tracking and recast
  • Show buffs removed by Purge and/or broadcast it to the chat window
  • Show spell interrupted by Wind Shear and/or broadcast it to the chat window
  • Tracks shaman CC and can alert when someone breaks it
  • Show when your Grounding Totem aborbs a spell and/or broadcast it to the chat window
  • Can print messages in MSBT, SCT, Parrot and a few other places
  • Announce to your group whenever you cast Bloodlust/Heroism, Mana Tide, or Feral Spirits
  • Uses spellID when available, this reduces the amount of localization

Of course you can choose for yourself which functions you want. It is built on Ace3 for increased efficiency and performance, with low memory footprint.

"/sf" or "/shamanfriend" to show the GUI.

As of release 3.4-r67 ShamanFriend uses libSharedMedia for Fonts and Sounds. Other addons that use libSharedMedia and add fonts and sounds will now be available in ShamanFriend. If you would like to add a bunch of new fonts, check out SharedMedia and SharedMediaAdditionalFonts. For additional sounds you can use SharedMediaAdditionalSounds.

If you would like to help with Translations please visit:

If you make changes to the translations, please send me a message as I do not get notified when translations are changed. I do try to check the Activity Log regularly to see if someone has made any changes though.

Bug tickets and suggestions can be submitted either as comments below or at:

Thanks go to Greltok for helping keep this addon up to date. Thank you to Esoyu and Sayclub for translation work. Thanks to BlueGlyph for all the work he did being the original author.

The Fulmination alert is now configurable from 0 to 20 stacks.
  When set to 0 (new autodetect default), ShamanFriend detects the
  Improved Lightning Shield perk to determine whether to set the stacks to
  15 or 20.
Updated sound paths required by LibSharedMedia update.

    since it hasn't got updated yet for the 20 stacks of fulmination i took initiative to change the code a bit to see if i can make it working right allthough i don't know much about programming and so far it works like a charm

  • #771

    Can you test out the r80 alpha that includes fulmination stack autodetection if you set it to 0:

    Fulmination is now configurable for lightning shield stacks from 0(autodetect) to 20 in r80 alpha.

  • #772

    not sure as i am not that much advanced user,i will try it though


  • #768

    Hey would it be possible to also add a section for when your tremor totem eats a fear ? similar to the grounding stuff you do.

    Thanks...maybe even a notify that you are protected or something too but id love it if it just told me if it ate a fear

  • #766

    Is there any way to update for it to show a max of 20 stacks of Fulmination instead of the max 7 stacks?

  • #770

    Sorry for the slow response.  This functionality is in r80 alpha, but needs testing:


  • #767

    Thanks for the bug report, I am sorry I missed that change in the WoD updates.  I will work on a fix so that it is 15 charges and 20 charges once one obtains Improved Lightning Shield.

  • #763

    Is there a way to have the addon keep track of when Healing Stream Totem goes off cooldown?

    wtf is this

  • #764

    That is not currently a feature of this addon.  I tend to use PowerAuras or WeakAuras for that type of notification.  ShamanFriend works great when combined with that type of addon as this addon performs a lot of tasks that aren't possible or easy to do with those addons.

  • #765

    Okay great, thanks for the heads up! Would you have asvice as to which would integrate better with ElvUI?

    wtf is this

  • #760

    Say.. dont suppose its possible to commission a Multistrike addon? I'm looking for an addon to add together my multistrike damage, similar to how your addon add together windfury damage.

    Multistrike is probably a lot more complicated then windfury but..

  • #761

    It looks possible to do.  I will think about it, but no promises.

  • #762

    I'd like to think theres a market for it!

  • #752

    Hey Stassart, will this mod see a 6.0.2 update?

  • #757

    r77 has been uploaded as beta to Curse for 6.0.2.  Check out the changelog for a list of changes.  I'm not sure how long it will take to move from the project site to the live Curse site.  You can click on the link to the project site and grab it from there until it appears here.

    I believe I have caught all the 6.0.2 changes, but if I missed anything please let me know.  If you find any bugs please let me know.

    Edit: Actually, I'm going to mark it as release instead of beta even though it is more beta status due to amount of testing at this point.  I don't want people accidentaly downloading the old WoW 5.4 version.
