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

    I have a problem with global timer.

    I cast with sb a "prayer of fortitude" on my group but when it expire I set another without using smartbuff... then the timer continue to say the prayer was expired. Is ther a way to show and disable this counter or check to see if character has same spell (prayer vs power word,...) ?

    Anyway great addon..

  • #83

    I understand your problem. I think Smartbuff have alot of other needs that is prioritized before this matter. Not sure.

    My suggestion is you take a look at this addon Fearwarder -

  • #84

    @Luinil The problem is that there is no function to get the remaining buff time from other players, so SmartBuff creates it's own timer list. If you buff manually SmartBuff can't set the timer correctly and you get this missleading buff warning. You can set the rebuff timer to zero, then you get the reminder only if the buff is gone.

    @Thoril Yes, I see... Well there is a workaround, for Onyxia as example, you select this template, then you select fearward but only on the warrior class. Normally you only have one Warrior in a subgroup, and in this case only this warrior will be buffed with fearward.

    @danaconda Next SmartBuff version will go on an try to cast another buff, if you not have enough mana.

      • 1** is in progress :)
      • 2** is already possible, for each buff you could set the checkbox "Self only" in the buff setup. If it's checked it buffs only you, if not it buffs all selected classes.
  • #87

    The latest version of "Autobuff" now has a feature that "Casts buffs when you switch targets or gain a new target. "

    Is there anyway this could be added to SmartBuff?

  • #89

    I've decided to make a small "fix" on my end instead since other mods also check to see if you are shapeshifted in the same way, so if you want to, you can remove the fix at your end. Sorry for the trouble :)

    @Merwen I'm running some test at the moment how easy I can handel charges. This would be also a nice feature for weapon buffs (poisons). I look forward to implement it in the next version.

    @North101 Thanks for update :)

    @Yaggy Done :) See new option: buff on target change

  • #210

    As a shammy you can now have buffs on both weapons but it doesnt look like it buffs both, also there are no choice of what buff u want on each weapon as we can have different buffs on both weapons.

    Also it would be nice to be able to get rid of the "cast" button if possible and just use a hotkey.

  • #211

    Great mod! :) Thanks for getting it TBC ready so quickly. It makes life so much easier.

    I just wanted to second Groll's suggestion. I would love to have a checkbox of some sort to disable the SB button from showing. For me, I bind cast to my middle click and don't need the button to take up real estate.

  • #92

    great add on, Is there a way to change the text size

    Oh, oh ... and please add the aspect of the Cheetah for the Hunter

  • #93

    I'm really liking this mod!!! A request. As a warrior I sometimes over use sunder.....can you add something that would give me a visual and possible audie warning when sunder is at it'a maximim? Thank You

  • #94

    Is it possible in the xml file to change the font style? If so, what line am should I look for, thanks.

  • #95

    Open the SmartBuff options frame, now if you left click outside somewhere, it changes the font style and size.

  • #96


    I wanted to thank you for this great mod that makes things alot easier ... and I have a little request : As a mage, i'm constantly switching between IceArmor (when alone) and MageArmor (when grouped). When I have the IceArmor (or MageArmor) on, and want to switch to MageArmor (or IceArmor), I have to manualy debuff myself (right click on icon) before triggering SmartBuff to cast MageArmor. It would be excellent to add a small check that cancels the old Buff then casts the new one. To do so, you could introduce a kind of Buff RadioGroup, in wich only one buff can be up at a time (as a standard Windows RadioGroup).

    Bye ;-)
