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

    Its not snowing up in v5.1a. Tried reloading ui and still not an option


    find me on twitter @scotepi

    I'm getting an error after leaving a dungeon. The most obvious thing that something is wrong is that the font preview window doesn't close when closing the options window. An oddity I noticed is that the problem doesn't go away with reloading the UI, you have to log out and then back in again to get it work like it should.

    I also noticed the error showing up on joining a battleground, might be that it showed up when I joined he dungeon too, not sure about that.

    Thanks a lot, fixed in next version :)

  • #1616

    5.1 dun broke it, most likely due to the party changes they made for PVP queues. 

  • #1617

    If you get an error message, please post it.

    Also some more info about whats not working would be very helpful, thanks

  • #1615

    Any chance of a 5.1 update?

  • #1618

    In progress :)

    Font 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?

    The new Version has the Same Problem

  • #1612

    I was thinking today, this might be a cool feature: A warning that reminds you you're still wearing an item like Wrap of Unity or the Kirin Tor ring.  Maybe, it could go off when they are on cooldown?  So it would let you know right after you port you are still wearing it.  I am just an idiot and seem to forget to re-equip my regular gear a lot, cloak is hidden so I don't see any visual reminders.

    Ok, thats really strange, if never seen before that an addon can crash the wow client. Sorry but I have currently no idea what could cause this issue :(

    Buttons visible during Pet Battles

    Nearly all other addons hide, except for ones that are designed to show only during a pet battle.

    The smart buff auto buff button is visible during pet battles.  This means it sometimes sits on top of addons that only show up during a pet battle.

    Fixed  in next release

    Darkmoon Firewater and recommended buffs

    Darkmoon Firewater is a good Attack Power Buff, can it be added manually?

    Is there a method or a guide on how to add items?

    Also is there any logic built for using a buff that is most beneficial to a class.... like Agility for Rogues, or Strength for Warriors?
