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.

    Or actually, I have a buggrabber :(
  • #645
    With the last update on 9/5, there is now a conflict with Satrina Buff Frames. Shaman Friend makes SBF completely disappear. Please take a look at it? Thanks!
  • #649
    Another thing to check is to make sure your LUA error are enabled and if you are getting any LUA errors that could be helpful in figuring out what is going wrong for you.
  • #648
    I have been unable to reproduce this issue myself using Shaman Friend 2.31-r32 and Satrina Buff Frames v3.2.3. The SBF frames display and I can click off buffs. The SF earth shield tracker and warnings work fine while SBF is running. Satrina Buff Frames appears to no longer be maintained, so I don't think you will get any help from that author although I do not get any LUA errors from it and it seems to still work fine in the latest WoW.

    To confirm, Satrina Buff Frames works for you when it's the only addon loaded and doesn't work when ShamanFriend and Satrina Buff Frames are the only addons loaded?
  • #646
    Thanks for the report, I will look into it. Off the top of my head, I have no idea how any of the changes could have caused a conflict. No new namespaces or globals were created.
  • #647
    No problem, thanks for the response. If you need additional information from me, let me know.
  • #644
    How can I set it to display my lightning overload procs to the outgoing area of MSBT, not the notification area? I'm comfortable enough editing the LUA's too if that is the solution.
  • #638
    i got a simular thing, im using Shaman Friend aswell because of the sound effects on earth shield and water shield, but all of a sudden it decided to stop give me sound warning :S what can i do about this?
  • #639
    General Options, check what Sound Channel you have ShamanFriend set to use. Make sure in WoW options that channel is enabled and has a good volume. You can also try changing the Sound Channel to see if it is a problem with that channel.
  • #632
    Alright, I've come across something that's rather annoying. I was using Shamanfriend for quite some time, from before WotLK hit. Right up until 4.06 it was working just fine, after that the WF counter disappeared all together, without me even touching any settings. I've tried re-installing it, going to default settings, everything, and it still will not show up.

    Any idea what might be causing this?
  • #634
    By WF counter I assume you mean how it displays the damage the Windfury did? There are some other Shaman addons with Windfury counters that display other Windfury stats, and I just want to make sure you are referring to the one in this addon.
  • #660

    A humble request:

    Can the Author please add the Earth Shield recast function to the Blizz Keybindings interface? It's a very useful frame/function, although not using mouse much while healing, except for target selection. At the moment, I'm recasting ES manually through a simple keybind.

    Other possible functions that could find a good home there would probably be opening a UI/options for example

  • #635
    Yeah it's the one in this addon. It won't display at all, no matter what I've done to try to correct it. It's really unfortunate since I'm also the kind of guy who likes big numbers light up my screen.

    I'm still using Shamanfriend since it's really a great addon to keep track of everything you need as a shaman, I just want to find a way to get the WF counter back up.
  • #640
    This is most likely a configuration issue. You can either file a ticket and upload your ShamanFriend.lua from WTF\Account\[account name]\SavedVariables\ShamanFriend.lua so I can see how you have it configured or you can delete that file to restore default settings and reconfigure it.
  • #631
    It's particularly useful to announce in /say that the mana tide totem is up in raids. For some reason I can't get my shaman to say any warnings about mana tide or spirit link since the start of cataclysm. I completely reinstalled the addon and turned other addons off and nothing. Is the feature broken or smth?
