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

    Hi, regarding SAFARI HAT (thanks for having added it), how can I prevent SB to try to buff me all the time ?

    Thanks in advance.


  • #1770

    First off, been a super fan for many years, 1 mod I couldn't do without, that being said your lastest update took off items in the autobuff, is there a reason why this is? it no longer is reading my "Crystal of Insanity" and some of the foods such as "Sauteed Carrots"  aren't in the list.. 

    Was able to get the Crystal of Insanity to work under custom but the food is still missing, i'm good with that, just a heads up on the food. thanks for the fantastic mod.

    Please set the charges counter to 0.

    And please report missing items/buff food and I will add it in the next release :)

  • #1769

    Hello, how is  'Added toybox support" meant? I can't find any option which handles with the box (first I thought about a randomuse function in the buff list :D)

  • #1771

    SB can use items, which are now in the toybox, e.g. drinking horn, orb of sindorai, etc.

  • #1773

    Mh, should there be a new button or items listed in the buff list or how can toys be implemented? I can't see anything like this.

  • #1765

    There is a irritating bug where SB is telling you that Stance of the Spirited Crane is not active, when it is in fact already active. It's because it was previously called "Stance of the Fierce Tiger"

    Thanks, fix in progress :)

  • #1764

    There's currently an OS X bug that affects how variables are saved for characters with ASCII in their names:

    It's preventing SmartBuff settings from saving on some characters across sessions. Nothing you can or need to do about it, I think, but until Blizzard fixes it, this should clear up why some of us are having problems using the addon :)

  • #1763

    You could add "Safari Hat" to the list of buffs (if you got the item in your bags), since it is no longer an equipable item, but a buff you can get.

  • #1768

    Added in next release :)

  • #1762

    IS there a way to make the "custom1" ect assign when I'm in Timeless Isle? or can the zone (Solo) be change to my custom1 with a script/macro?


  • #1766

    This is currently not possible, I will check that for future release

  • #1760

    Oh thank god you updated. 3 days with out this addon was a pain.

  • #1759

    Due to my WoW time slots are very limited, please report any bugs as detailed as possible.

    The next update is already in progress and with your help I can fix as much as possible, thanks :)
