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

    Adding "local _;" somewhere around line 60 should fix it.

    Great, thanks for your help, fix in progress :)

  • #1546

    Not that it's a huge deal, because hunters watch their own aspects, but I went in to add something else I noticed "Aspect of the Hawk" (and the talented version "Aspect of the Iron Hawk") are missing from the selectable buffs.

    Thanks for your update - my shadow priest would spend half her life without vampiric touch & fort if it wasnt for this update.

  • #1545

    Aeldra, thank you so much.  Going to send you a donation.  I notice BTW that my rogue's Leeching Poison (which comes from a talent) isn't in her list of options.  Whenever you can fix it's great, but being reminded to do Deadly reminds me to manually do Leeching too :)  Thanks for an addon which makes life so much better.

    Hey there, just so you know, Dark Intent doesn't show anymore as buffable in Smartbuff, when it is still a full duration buff.

  • #1539

    Curse currently rejects my new version, reason: Repeated version...hahaha Yell

    You can download the latest from WoW Interface:

    I hope Curse will fix this issue soon

  • #1538

    SmartBuff is not switching templates when the group structure changes. I have to manually change it every time I want to go from Party to Solo.

  • #1540

    Should be fixed with the new version 5.0b

  • #1537

    Is there anything we can help to ease your work?
    I think there is not much basic structure change, but just renewal and addition of item and spell codes
    if that the case, maybe we can help sort out a list of buff to help you upgrade easier

    Just a piece of my thought

    Thank you for your time on the add-on, it has already become a must XD 

  • #1543

    List of missing or not working correctly spell/item codes would be great. Because it is really hard to check all classes and spec combinations :)

  • #1534

    THANKS for this great Addon !!!

    I Love you..

    Wann tritt dieser Fehler auf? Was wird versucht zu buffen?

  • #1533

    on a paladin...seems to happen on any "Seal" spell...casts the spell, doesn't recognize that seal is applied, gives notification that seal is needed, next scrollwheel movement removes seal, still gives notification, next scrollwheel casts spell notification that seal is still needed...rinse, repeat...

    looks like it's just not recognizing that the spell has been applied...

  • #1535

    Seals are not longer buffs these are handled like stances...fix in progress.

  • #1541

    Fixed with the new version 5.0b
