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

    Bear with me I am not a coder and this is my 1st time using github =)

    I took my Smartbuff Folder & files

    With the all the updates to:Runes:
    Hyper Augment Rune
    Stout Augment Rune
    Focus Augment Rune
    (128482) Empowered Augement Rune [Alliance]
    (128475) Empowered Augement Rune [Horde] ? I do not have one in Horde so not sure if what I put in worked

    Oralius' Whispering Crystal
    Bodyguard Miniaturization Device
    Felmouth Frenzy food

    Rogue Poisions seem to work fine.

  • #1843

    I downloaded your version and there's one line missing so Instant Poison can be used correctly.
    In SmarBuffs.buffs.lua you need to add this in the Rogue section of function SMARTBUFF_InitSpellList()

    {SMARTBUFF_INSTANTPOISON, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF, nil, S.CheckFishingPole, nil, S.ChainRoguePoisonsLethal}

    In function SMARTBUFF_InitSpellIDs() it's declared, but it was just missing in the function that lists the available buffs in the addon.

    Thanks for updating the addon!

  • #1841

    I do have a modified version of my SmartBuff.buffs.lua that comments out some hunter stuff since it made the list too long AND the scroll feature was not working correctly.
    Using Notepad++ (Free Program)

    I commented out the Tracking: Lines 466 - 477
      -- Tracking
      SMARTBUFF_FINDMINERALS    = GetSpellInfo(2580);  --"Find Minerals"
      SMARTBUFF_FINDHERBS       = GetSpellInfo(2383);  --"Find Herbs"
    --  SMARTBUFF_FINDTREASURE    = GetSpellInfo(2481);  --"Find Treasure"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKHUMANOIDS  = GetSpellInfo(19883); --"Track Humanoids"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKBEASTS     = GetSpellInfo(1494);  --"Track Beasts"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKUNDEAD     = GetSpellInfo(19884); --"Track Undead"
      SMARTBUFF_TRACKHIDDEN     = GetSpellInfo(19885); --"Track Hidden"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKELEMENTALS = GetSpellInfo(19880); --"Track Elementals"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKDEMONS     = GetSpellInfo(19878); --"Track Demons"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKGIANTS     = GetSpellInfo(19882); --"Track Giants"
    --  SMARTBUFF_TRACKDRAGONKIN  = GetSpellInfo(19879); --"Track Dragonkin"

    and the Toy: Lines 981,982
    --  AddItem( 54653,  75532,  30); -- Darkspear Pride
    --  AddItem( 54651,  75531,  30); -- Gnomeregan Pride

    Sadly, this looks abandoned... 

  • #1839

    I am not sure if I would be ready to consider this addon abandoned yet.

    There are patches that anyone who feels comforable at all in reading and understanding patching can implement to keep this addon more up to date.
    Also with a bit of outside thinking and understanding (I am not an addon maker or coder) you can add things you would like by editing the LUA files
    For those that are NOT interested in this the community may be able to provide updated files you can install yourself.

    For those that only want a curse auto update option? Well yes this addon will not function %100 for you and I have not seen any other addons with this functionality.

    This is a great and handy addon and my thanks to Aeldra for all the great work! I hope you are still around and have time to update this wonderful addon.

    Empowered Augment Rune support

  • #1826

    I'd love to see support for this too please. Alliance is 128482, Horde is 128475.

    Give or take a few line numbers:

    207: SMARTBUFF_MiscItem12          = GetItemInfo(128482); --"Empowered Augement Rune"

    500: SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12     = GetSpellInfo(190668); --"Empower"

    890: {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem12, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12},




    SMARTBUFF_MiscItem13          = GetItemInfo(128475); --"Empowered Augement Rune"

    SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem13     = GetSpellInfo(190668); --"Empower"


    for Horde, but no toon to test with.

  • #1838

    If you check the tickets in curse forge you will see someone added a patch for Runes.

    What they did was add a new catagory: Rune
    Then defined all the runes after.

    There are also other changes in that I did not use because they are in the 6.0c Release.
    I am going to try and add a few more things to mine (and take some out like some Cosmetic buffs) and maybe find a place to post my files.
    As of now Alliance (I did not add horde rune yet) I have:
    Oralius' Whispering Crystal, Augment Runes, Instant Poison, new Buff Foods (except Felmouth Frenzy which I want to add)

  • #1837


    do the lines you posted go in smartbuff.buff.lua ??

  • #1836

    Verified that gendi's last comment (#1829) works for Horde. Thank you!

    (this is supposed to be a reply to Gendi) 

    Any chance you could post the nearby lines in the code? My line 539 doesn't look anything similar to that s.linkAugment thing, it's in the middle of a list of elixirs looking like 

    SMARTBUFF_BELIXIR5        = GetSpellInfo(53747);  --"Elixir of Spirit" B

    Something like "Look for the line:

    and put the code here' would make it a lot easier. 

    I put them where I think they belonged, and it works but is constantly prompting to reapply the buff, like it doesn't seem to be looking for it, so I think I got the '501' section in the wrong place.

    Best I came up with to get round the horde/alliance items and 3 different buffs:

      SMARTBUFF_MiscItem12          = GetItemInfo(128482); --"Empowered Augement Rune" Alliance
      SMARTBUFF_MiscItem13          = GetItemInfo(128475); --"Empowered Augement Rune" Horde

      SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_1   = GetSpellInfo(175457); --"Focus Augmentation"
      SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_2   = GetSpellInfo(175456); --"Hyper Augmentation"
      SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_3   = GetSpellInfo(175439); --"Stout Augmentation"

      S.LinkAugment             = { SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_1, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_2, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_3 };

        {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem13, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_1, S.LinkAugment},
        {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem13, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_2, S.LinkAugment},
        {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem13, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_3, S.LinkAugment},
        {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem12, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_1, S.LinkAugment},
        {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem12, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_2, S.LinkAugment},
        {SMARTBUFF_MiscItem12, 60, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SCROLL, nil, SMARTBUFF_BMiscItem12_3, S.LinkAugment},

    (Will probably make the author cry, but I wasn't going through the whole code to figure out the "correct" way)

  • #1824


    I cannot see that this mod supports Instant Poison for rogues.. (

    Is it possible to add it?

  • #1822

    I would like to have options for the runes (which can be used at the same time as flasks) :).

  • #1820

    Aeldra, I know there are probably limitations to addons but is it possible just to cast the buffs on you automatically when you are out of combat without user intervention?
