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

- 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

    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.

  • #760

    Please set the charges slider to 0 then it should work.

  • #758

    I am using 2.4a Dev1 and have been having the same problem with the last few versions of SmartBuff. I have a level 29 shaman and I use my lightning shield. The problem is that SmartBuff always shows that I need it (keeps showing the splash screen that my shaman needs lightning shield). So, I have to take it off the list for SmartBuff because it would cast lightning shield every time I use my mouse wheel - whether I have it buffed or not. It seems to work when I just log in and then something goes wrong within the first few minutes and it constantly thinks that lightning shield is not buffed. I hope you can fix it, but either way, this is an awesome addon - thanks for the hard work!!!

  • #759

    Also, is it possible to add the option for SmartBuff not to cast buffs while you're in Ghost Wolf form? It's kind of annoying when you're running and try to change the camera view with the mouse wheel to be pushed out of ghost wolf so you can cast a weapon buff you don't need. Thanks.

  • #761

    The latest version of Smartbuff is working great for me. Thx for a really cool buff mod! Tested in solo, group and raid setting.

    Greetz from a lvl 70 NE Druid with an English EU client.

  • #764

    Hmm, thats interesting because the 2.4a dev1 does not longer use any translations for buffs. It seems that the string compare from LUA has some problems. I will check if I get some more information about it.

  • #763

    Hi. Thx for a great addon. It really makes life easier %)

    SmartBuff 2.4a Dev1 works with Russian language pack, but there are some problems:

    Spells that not cast: single Fort, Spirit, Shadow Prot, AI (but group versions of this spells works good), PW:Shield, Fear Ward, amp/damp magic. May be some other.
    I tested it with 70 lvl priest & mage and with 2 lvl priest with only SmartBuff enabled. No errors, just “Nothing to do” message. Changing options do nothing.

    There’s an options screen. Marked spells – Fort, Inner Fire and Spirit.

    I also found a table with Russian letters in “localization.en.lua”. This is the full table with some examples. Hope you have Russian code page – I know how it looks without it %)
    If you can’t read the table –

    Another it possible to stop the splash reminders if there is a buff of higher quality? I see this on occasion if my character gets a buff from a higher character and, most recently, when you're on the new island. It gives you a buff that includes Int. and I have smartbuff set up to buff arcane int on my mage. Because smartbuff is looking for that particular buff, it keeps telling me I need it, but the game tells me (and rightfully so) that I already have a higher buff.

  • #773

    I assume you download (download button) the released version and this is "out of date". You can download the new beta manually.

  • #769


    When I try to use this Addon it's always OutofDate for me how can I fix this?

  • #770

    SmartBuff 2.4a Dev2 - still "Nothing to do" %(
    Update: food works, oils not.

    Check "Load out of date AddOns" at the AddOn List window.

  • #772

    I will add this in the next version :)

  • #771

    Could you consider integrating an option to disable buffing in (druid)formes?
    Or at least while stealthed.

    It can really ruin your day if you switch out and buff yourself in between a bunch of evil hordys which are trying to gank anything in sight...

    Aside of that, thank you for that addon ;)

  • #777

    Currently I have no idea, why it should not work, because the latest Dev versionen uses spell IDs which are converted to spell names on the local client language. The spells are displayed in SmartBuff in russian letters so it finds the buffs. I will check if I can install the russian ELP on my client. Do you know any download sites for the russian patches?

  • #775

    Thnx for a nice addon, using it over 2 years (i beleive).
    Russian community got their own realms and got their own language in buffs,
    strangely but addon is behaving pretty strange: some buffs it can, some not.
    for example: as a paladin you can buff RF and auras, but you cannt buff any bless.
    for priest: you can buff inner fire, shadowguard but you cannt fortitude, spirit and etc. Can you make this addon working, i believe russian users would be very happy.

    it damn unconvinient to play without your addon. PLX PLX
