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.

    It seems that SFdoesn't work with the french cli. I can't see my Lightening Overload proc.

    There's something i can do to change this?

    Thanks ;)

  • #160

    Thanks BlueGlyph
    i'll try this and tell you if it work ;)

  • #161

    New version, fixed a few things you asked for :)

  • #164

    It's not added on their site, don't know when/if I will do it.

  • #162

    why doesn't this update with the WowAceUpdater?

  • #163

    New version, fixed for 2.3

    Haven't gotten so much time to test it so tell me if you got any problems.

  • #166

    Currently I have no plans to make addons for other classes than Shaman, since it's the only class that I play.

    But who knows what the future brings :)

  • #165

    Hi BlueGlyph, GZ for this wonderfull addon, i want to make one question. I am paladin retry and always play with my shaman friend that use WF totem.... but this addon dont tell me WF attack (attack + extra attac), can you modifi it to use all players (not only shaman), and another petition XD. Can you modifi it for paladin RETRY that use SoC.

    With shaman WF totem sometimes, we hit= Hit+Soc+Extra Attack+Soc ... can you make adaptation to us?

    I always tell about "- Show total Windfury damage on screen with crits/misses"

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english :)

  • #167

    Would it be possible to add a timebar and maybe a rebuff button for the new watershield? Could be quite handy in both PVE and PVP

  • #169

    Looks like there are a high demand of other classes getting the same function as in this addon, maybe I will have to rethink, but currently, no plans to make it work for other classes than Shaman.

    My sparetime aren't that good any more, so don't know if I will have time to make a rewrite of that size in the near future.

  • #168

    hey BlueGlyph, i was just wondering if there is anyway you could get just the purge function into groupchat to work with arcane shot now when it has a dispell function on it.
    Can be useful for my group to know whenever i dispell freedom or bop etc.. or is it possible for me to change it myself?
    my coding skills arnt that great so well.. thanks in advance

  • #170

    Solsy: I have noticed that the Water Shield implementation is not optimal any more. Maybe a timer bar would be nice as you say. Anyone else have any suggestiions on how to do it?

    Still think it's working quite fine with having Water Shield keybound to an easy to reach button, and pressing it whenever you hear the sound.

  • #171

    It would be really nice to be able to report what a hunter dispells with arcane shot.

    Also what he interupts with scatter shot or silences with silence shot

  • #173

    I am still updating this mod with whatever features I find necessary.

    I don't really get what you are meaning. Is it so that every time you have lightning shield on you, that you hear a strange sound? what about Water Shield?

    Have you tried disableing all other addons and deleting the Shaman Friend files from the WTF folder?

    Does it happend even if you set the sound to "none"?

  • #172

    Not sure if you're keeping up with this however I have found a bug - this mod, once initially run will add or cause by whatever means the PERMANENT addition of a fast looping "thrown weapon" sound effect to a lightning shield. Could you or a fan please duplicate and address this? I love the mod to death, but I dont even use lightning shield because that sound is so frickin annoying.
