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 and Weapon Enchants 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:

    Hi and thank you for a great addon.
    Any chance to get the option that the Earth shield tracker only displays when your in a group, raid, battleground or Arena. Its not really any point having it showing when your soloing as you usually dont solo in resto specc with the dual specc system. And is there any chance for an option to disable the icon for the earth shield tracker? I dont really see any use for the icon to be there as you get an warning when the earth shield is removed or expires. Other than that a really great addon :)
  • #452
    When you switch to non-resto spec the Earth Shield tracker should disappear (and reappear when you switch back to resto spec).

    I will still add the ability to disable the tracker during solo play to the feature request list.

    As for the icon, it is kind of a gimmick, but you can click on it to refresh Earth Shield on your current target as long as you do not change targets in combat. WoW does not allow updating the button target in combat (it updates as soon as you are out of combat).

    Hi, it's a great add on, and has been extremely useful for all three specs (been respeccing alot). Recently I switched to Ele, and I'm having abit of trouble interpreting the Lightning Overload. It's simple to understand a plain Lightning Bolt, but Chain Lightning confuses me. It usually displays twice for the same proc, sometimes showing three targets then two, or two then one, etc. For the targets that show up twice, the damage is the same. What exactly does it mean? Thanks!

    Hi. Great addon but there is something that bothers me. When im in a battleground it announces everything in /bg. my heroism and feral spirit are set for /yell and my interupts are set for /party. I just want it to yell for the first 2, and when i solo bg i just want it to say 'You are not in a party' instead of announcing it all in /bg. Any chance for a fix? Would be much appreciated :)

    Tnx in advance, keep up the good work :)

    In Shaman Friend options (/sf ui to bring up), under "General Display" make sure "BG Announce" is turned off. By default it is turned off, but you must have turned it on at some point. Shaman Friend will only announce to battleground channel if you tell it to.
  • #443
    Thats not the problem. If i turn the BG announce off it doesnt announce anything. It should just yell like i tell him so :O and when i bg as a party it should announce my interupts like i tell him so
  • #444
    The problem before when I had it not output to battleground channel, is when you have announce set to party/raid when you are in a battleground you get the "You aren't in a party." error messages. I guess I can add another option "Battleground channel"/"Announce to battleground channel when in a battleground." and if you don't have that checked, you would get the errors. I got complaints about the error messages though so I would probably need to find a more elegant solution where it would make sure those errors didn't occur.
  • #445
    Personally i wouldnt mind those error messages but i can see why loads of ppl do. Would be nice to make announces a bit more configurable for bg's idd :)

    for now ill just spam /bg and annoy ppl :D

    stassart: Sent you a PM with feature requests / bug reports.
  • #438
    Thanks for your help Greltok. Greltok has been helping me test and the new features in 2.04 beta are largely due to his feedback and testing.
  • #433
    I noticed a discrepancy between my Shaman Friend and my Recount. SF is telling me my windfury is getting single crits of 300+ (I know, I'm low lvl) but recount is counting my highest windfury proc as 179 max. Is SF counting something differently than recount, or is one of them wrong? Both addons are totally up to date, so any help would be nice.
  • #434
    Shaman Friend reports the damage for the entire windfury (the hit that procs windfury plus the two extra swings). A single crit means 1 of the 3 swings crit, double crit means 2 of the 3, and triple crit means 3 of the 3 swings crit.

    You are probably looking at just the individual extra swings in recount.

    The last two zip files downloaded via Curse (201 and 202) are both creating folders with improper user permissions, which is throwing errors in the Curse Client and forcing a manual installation after adjusting the permissions of the folders in the zip. For the record, the owning user should have read and write permission, not just read. This is Mac OS X I'm talking about here - ymmv on Windows.
  • #435
    zip files do not store permissions. Are you only getting this error with this addon?

    On Unix based systems if you unzip a file, the files should be created with permissions based on your umask. I do not know if Mac OS X works this way or not.

    Curse Client Support (v4 Mac). There seems to be a couple threads where people were having permission problems and changing permissions on their AddOn folder solved the problem.

    I would love to see the Earth Shield tracker look more like http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info10379-EarthShieldTracker.html
    The border and everything just makes it look wierd on my ui.
    Other than that I love the way it works.
