About SmartBuff


Created by Aeldra (EU-Proudmoore)


SmartBuff is a buff addon, to cast buffs ease and quickly. All classes are supported. Bind a key, scrollwheel or use the action button and it checks if you, a party/raid member, also hunter and warlock pets, needs your buff and cast it. Use the options menu to configure it you like, as example: buffs, raid subgroups, pets, etc.
Run the mod when ever you wish, if nothing is buffed, there is no penalty or cool down.

Broker_SmartBuff plugin

FuBar-SmartBuffFu plugin

SmartDebuff is not part of this project you can download it here.

- FAQ -

Q1: How can I cast group/class buffs, instead of single buffs?
A1: Select both checkboxes, assign the classes, use following options the play around "Grp buff check", "Grp range check" and "group size"/"class size" slider
Example, if you set the group/class slider to 3 it will only buff the greater buff if 3 or more units not have it.

Q2: How can I move the frames and buttons?
A2: Use Shift-Left click and drag dem arround

Q3: How can I assign a trigger key for buffs?
A3: Use the Blizzard interface -> keyboard layout to define the trigger key for SmartBuff. Open and close the SmartBuff options frame and it will remap this key to the new SecureActionButton

Q4: How can I assign a key for debuffing?
A4: During the new Blizzard secure UI is this not longer possible!

Q5: How can I disable the scrollwheel buffing?
A5: Disable the "Buff on scroll" in the SmartBuff options frame, close it and rebind scrollwheel to whatever you want :)

Q6: How can I cast buffs in combat?
A6: If you want to cast a spell in combat, the you have to check also the "in combat" option in the main options frame (on the right of "Buff on scroll"). Be carfully with this option. In combat is no logic allowed, so SB sets your first "combat"-buff on your key before combat, but in combat it can't do any actions to prevent to cast during the restrictions. It only can show you when do you need a buff, but any time you hit the key in combat it buffs. Thats also the reason why the "in combat" is per default "off".

Q7: SmartDebuff casts the wrong debuff on a player, is this a bug?
A7: Please watch carfully in which color the debuff button is highlighted, this is very important! You have to click the button with the correct mouse click
Highlighted BLUE = LEFT click
Highlighted RED = RIGHT click
Highlighted GREEN = MIDDLE click

Q8: It does not buff anything, whats wrong?
A8: Please make sure you have selected any buff and the right classes. If you are in resting mode (Cities) SmartBuff is per default in "sleep mode" and does not cast spells, select the option "Buff in cities" to cast buffs in resting mode also.

Q9: Can I use SmartBuff in a macro?
A9: Yes, since the last blizzard added a /click command, use following command:
/click SmartBuff_KeyButton

    If you want a button on your toolbar for this, use this macro. If you LEFT click on it, it will buff you. If you RIGHT click on it, it will bring up the addon's settings.

    /click [btn:1] SmartBuff_KeyButton
    /run if SecureCmdOptionParse("[btn:2]") then SMARTBUFF_OptionsFrame_Open(true) end

    Is it possible to add the Instant Poison for Combat Rogue ? (Deadly poison become Instant poison iin combat spec)

  • #1814

    Would it be possible to add the Accelerated Learning buff from the Excess Potion of Accelerated Learning? There is nothing more anoying than handing in a load of quests to see that it's dropped off.

    Thank you.

  • #1815

    I have this working by adding the below line to the top of the list that starts at line 947, the existing list begins with Fire-Watcher's Oath.

    AddItem(120182, 178119,  60); -- Accelerated Learning

    Is cat form not an ability? I'm Moon/Cat I know Moon works fine but it doesn't have a SS into cat at all not even through custom, curious if it's a bug or you're in the process of fixing or making it available?, and thank you for in my opinion one of the most useful mods for this game...

    Horn of Winter behaves as a self-only buff.


  • #1811

    Hunter: SB shouldn't bug me to buff any of the Lone Wolf buffs while I have a pet out. These buffs are only relevant when you don't have an active pet.

    This has always been one of my favorite addons and not being able to use Instant Poison on my rogue really was bugging me, so I tried and even managed to solve the issue. (#6.0c)

    1. Browse to your Wow\Interface\Addons\SmartBuff folder and open the "SmartBuff.buffs.lua" file with a text editor (notepad, wordpad, etc)

    2. Now search for the following line {SMARTBUFF_DEADLYPOISON, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF, nil, S.CheckFishingPole, nil, S.ChainRoguePoisonsLethal}, (line 738, don't forget the "," at the end of the line!) and copy and paste this whole line directly underneath, so you'll have 2 exact same lines at this point.

    3. On the new duplicated line, change {SMARTBUFF_DEADLYPOISON, 60 to {SMARTBUFF_INSTANTPOISON, 60" and save/close the "SmartBuff.buffs.lua" file.

    4. Start WoW and start using the Instant Poison option.

    Sadly there's no icon appearing in the Instant Poison text, but I hope the creator will fix the Instant Poison issue with a future update. I've been using this addon for as long I can remember and I hope it stays alive as long WoW exists.

    Thank you for this... :)

  • #1809

    thanks, this will at least let me patch it in until author has a chance to update it

  • #1806

    I still dont see Instant Poison for rogues in the list

  • #1804

    It appears Smartbuff does not recognize settings for Dark Intent. It never seems to trigger.

  • #1807

    Nevermind, I found the issue.

    I did not have classes selected, just roles.  I thought that would select everyone but I guess it's not buffing anyone with any classes selected.

  • #1802


    Claws of Shirvallah allows buffing in cat form.

    At this moment if I check Shapeshift, will get me out of cat form then buff. If I uncheck it, will never buff in shapeshift form (ofc).

    Please, is it possible to check if Claws of Shivallah buff is present and stance=2, allow to cast buffs (Mark of the Wild anyway)

    Thank you, keep up the awesome work you do
