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.

    I don't test or support WoW private servers.  You would obviously need to use the version of this addon that matches the WoW version from back then (Version 2.08b).

    Would be nice to have some of the Bittens SpellFlash features in Shaman Friend like hst, mtt, lb (with teluric currents) and ww (

  • #747

    There are enough different addons that help with spell rotations and they display the information differently, I am currently happy to keep spell rotation addons separate from this one so that people can use the one they like.

  • #742

    Why doesn't it display combined Stormblast+WF damage?

  • #745

    This should be fixed in Version 3.52-r74 beta.  Please let me know if it doesn't work for you.

  • #743

    That's a bug, I should handle the Ascendance version of Stormstrike the same way as normal Stormstrike.  I will work on a fix.

    Hi,I have enabled party chat annoucing for various spells but it doesn't seem to occur,ever.Am I missing something obvious here?

    I do see text in my chat,but nothing ever happens in party chat.


  • #744

    Party chat announcing works fine for me, I would need more information to figure out why it isn't working for you.  You can file a ticket and upload your WTF\Account\[account]\SavedVariables\ShamanFriend.lua so I can look at your settings.

    For output to go to party the following conditions must be met:

    1) The spell announce/chat is set to go to "PARTY".

    2) Location is enabled under General with the following conditions:

    a) Battleground: Must be set to "party" and you must be in a party that isn't part of the battleground, i.e., you were in a party before joining the battleground.

    b) Arena, works if checked and you were in a party before joining arena.

    c) 5-man and scenarios, if output is set to "RAID" or "PARTY", output goes to instance chat

    d) non-LFR raid: Works if checked. There must be other people in the same party as you.

    e) LFR raid: Works if you are in an actual party, i.e., you were in a party before joining LFR.

    f) World: Works if checked. Must be in a party.

    Hope that helps explain how it works. I believe the rules above are pretty intuitive if you think about how the game works, but if there is a condition above that should work differently, please let me know how you think it should work and I can see if it is possible to add that as an option.

    UnoDe, this issue is fixed in 3.51-r73.

  • #739

    My bad, I had fixed this issue for 5.3 in the local version instead of the version I checked in and didn't retest it.  I will check in the fix tonight and make sure to test the version that gets checked in.

    Hi! Any chances for Searing Flames alerts (asking that some months ago)?
