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

    Problem is that Blizzard clears the frame positions, if an addon is disabled. Currently SB does not store the position additionaly, sorry.

    There need to be a option for the rouges Recuperate ability on SmartBuff. Its something I need to constantly keep up and it would be great to put it into my SmartBuff trigger button.

    Added in next version :)

    I've been experiencing an issue for a while now where the the icon on the action button doesn't refresh to show the spell that needs to be cast. If I click on the button anyway, it casts the spell as expected. I also have an issue where it doesn't recognize that one person in the party is missing a buff, forcing me to open my spell book and cast it from there. I have Power Word: Fortitude, Shadow Protection, and Inner Will on my list, if that helps.
  • #1448
    in what situation does this happen, combat, raid, group, solo? Please provide my as much info as possible.
  • #1440
    Hi Aeldra,
    I'm afraid the warlock talent nether ward still refuses to work with the built in shadow ward spell in your list.
    I believe you may have to include it as a stand alone spell.
    I have always loved this addon, but although it has many more features now a lot of the 'in combat' options for some chars now dont work. I realise this is because of blizzard changes, but for me the primary advantage is to be able to scrollwheel buff caster shields whilst some mob is meleeing me.
    Thanks anyway for sticking around despite blizzards constant adjustments :)

    Great add-on, was wondering would it be possible to add support for focus fire Hunter beast master spec.
  • #1449
    Added in next version :)

    anything special needed to get Slice and Dice working again on the mousewheel?

    It will notify me that i need it but it will not buff it. it will although apply my poisons with the mousewheel and works correctly on my mage.

    thanks. great add-on my favorite i have used it since it came out and dont think i could play with out it.

    It doesn't seem to allow me to buff Horn of Winter while in combat no matter how I have the in combat settings set. Did I miss something or is this a bug that's going to be fixed?
  • #1437
    Actually even on my druid Mark of the Wild won't buff in combat either even when "in combat" is checked.
  • #1426
    On my Shaman I have Smartbuff set to give Flametongue on my off-hand and Windfury on my Main-hand. Only when neither has a buff, it Flametongues both weapons. I've double checked the check boxes and everything is marked as it should but it still does this. If I let it Flametongue both and then kill (right click the buff) the buff on my main hand, Smartbuff does it right and buffs it with Windfury. I've looked through all the settings several times and can't figure out anything that I'm doing wrong directly. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks and take care.
  • #1432
    I have tried several things to get this really fixed, but no chance :(
    It seems that it only depends on the buff order. So since 4.0e you can drag'n'drop the buffs and reorder them. Please drag'n'drop Windfury above Flametongue in the buff list and then it should working.
  • #1435
    Hey I hadn't notice you could do that. That'll work :0). Thanks so much! I've used SmartBuff for years now and I really appreciate the work you put into it. Thank you.

    Flask of Enhancement:
    The detection doesn't notice when you got a "real" flask up (like 300 agi).
    In that case SB shouldn't keep bugging you to buff Flask of Enhancement, since you got a more powerful buff active.
