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

    Shaman weapon buffs are a little bit tricky...
    1. Please make sure you have correctly set the "main" / "off" hand checkbox for the weapon buffs
    2. The main hand buff needs to be above the off hand buff in the list. You can drag'n'drop the buffs to order them.

    Hope this will help you :)

  • #1641

    Thank you so much for the fast reply! So far it seems to be working better. I think it was due to their order! :) I didn't know they could be moved. Hehe.

  • #1638

    As a Shaman, I use Windfury Weapon on my mainhand and Flametongue Weapon on my offhand. For some reason, however, it only casts Flametongue Weapon and it casts it on both hands, even though offhand is all that's checked off on Flametongue Weapon.

    I have no idea what's up with that. I read through the FAQ and saw no references on it, so I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong. It's driving me insane.

    I've been using this addon since BC, and I'll have to say I absolutely cannot live without it. It's the second thing I notice when I play on a computer with no addons. (First is GoGoMount :]) So I'd like to extend my thanks and appreciation for this beautiful piece of code. However, I was surprised to see that it has been maintained for so long, considering it basically hasn't been changed since BC. There are quite a few options that are senseless nowadays and simply don't work. For instance, in-combat buffing no longer works at all. While a minor annoyance that there is a checkbox for a feature that doesn't work, it still says that the basic framework of the addon hasn't been looked at for a very long time. The thing that stands out for me is the Raid Subgroup feature. It is enabled by default and I never remember to turn it off until I hit my first raid. Gone are the days of assigning specific groups to buff. One cast buffs the whole raid. This whole section should be removed and streamlined.

    Again I want to reiterate that I truly can't live without this addon, but I think it needs some love to meet with the times.

  • #1650

    To remove and streamline the UI/functionality is still on my ToDo list. Unfortunately such tasks are very time consuming...but it has to be done and my ToDo list gets smaller and smaller :)

    The new Version has the same Problem:

    Recently I noticed that the damage and healing shown on my and the target unitframe is painted in a very low resolution. The font is very pixelated/grainy.  I tested which Addon could cause this - it is SmartBuff. If I tun it off everything is OK. Is there a solution?


  • #1634

    As someone who is looking for a new buff addon after my old one stopped working, I'm confused. The description and screenshots seem to be from vanilla/TBC as it mentions weapon oils/stones, buffing pets, reagents, vanilla raids in specific, etc, yet judging from the comments it's actively supported? I'd suggest updating the description and screenshots so it's possible to get a preview of how it actually works these days without having to install it first and set it up.

  • #1633

    it could be me but with my mage i see conjure mana but i dont see conjure refreshment :(

    I just downloaded the updated version and it would not work at all. I could not self buff or buff anyone else. I checked all my settings and they were normal. I finally had to uninstall the updated version and go back and download the last version. It's working fine with that one. Anyone else having this issue?

  • #1632

    Any error message? Is it possible to open the options window? Issue on all classes?

  • #1628

    Any chance of adding Grimoire of Sacrifice support for warlocks to this addon?

  • #1624

    Please add support for Water Elemental on Frost Mages, should be a copy and paste of Unholy DK.

    Please also hide the button when in a vehicle.


    find me on twitter @scotepi
