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

    ( )

    PS : Ok I found it. sorry ;-)

  • #756

    tyvm. zomgbuffs works as a temp solution, but no wheres near level.

  • #757

    New beta is online :)
    It would be great if some of you could help me to check if all buffs work fine, because the whole spell and item localization/detection has changed.

  • #774

    I wish I had better news... I tried the newest release and it still isn't working. It works for a few minutes (until I fight something that uses up my lightning shield) and then it continually says I need lightning shield. This last time, it worked for about 5 minutes and then I fought an elite. As soon as my lightning shield was used up, I recast it and it didn't recognize that I was buffed. Before that fight, I had tried right-clicking on the buff a few times and re-casting it and it worked just fine. No idea what the issue is but I do appreciate the help.

  • #768

    Please check the latest beat 2.4 Dev2 if it is fixed now.

  • #766

    I am playing on the English client and my Shaman is only level 31 - he doesn't have water shield yet. It works perfectly on all of my other characters (I have a 70 Hunter, a 70 Mage, a 26 Paladin, a 35 Warlock, and a couple others) - it just doesn't like the Shaman's Lightning Shield. And, like I said, it works for a couple minutes when I first log on and then something goes crazy. At that point, it continually says I need Lightning Shield. Recently, I have been only buffing Rockbiter and Lightning Shield and Rockbiter works just fine. I have also used other main-hand weapon buffs that the shaman has with no problems.

  • #765

    I tested it with my shaman an there it works as intended.
    On which client language are you playing? Have you checked lightning and water shield? i need some mmore info ;)

  • #762

    Well...I tried reducing it to 0 charges and it still has the same issue. It worked fine for about 2 minutes and then constantly said I needed Lightning Shield. So, I had to turn it off for the lightning shield. Hope you can figure out a fix for it. Thanks.
