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.

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

    If you want curing, just get decursive continued... :) I think adding "curing code" would be too much work and is not necessary! (I'm not the developter of this mod, but thats what I think ^^)

  • #103

    I received after installation always following error:

    ...../SmartBuff.lua 1774:attempt to index Global Smartbuff_Buffs (a Nil Balue)

    I installed your last Version

  • #104

    I find that when I have buff on mouse scroll enabled, and I scroll to quickly, Smartbuff causes the game to stutter or even sometimes freeze. Is it possible to make SB throttle the number of buff checks intelligently no matter how fast I scroll my mouse since there's a global cooldown of 1 second per buff?


  • #105

    @Thoril I can't generate the error on my system. Please download the version in the DevZone (Download beta version) at and let me know if it's fixed.

    @teedog SmartBuff uses already a 1sec cooldown after each "mouse scroll" check. Are you running other addons, which hooks the mouse scroll?

    @cag_dk Curing function are not part of SmartBuff, please use decursive for debuff managment.

  • #106

    Since the last version Smart Buff rebuffs the Lightning Shield on every Buff Check even if it is still active.

    Known bug? Or odd behaviour of my version?

    Running the German Client.

  • #107

    @Serranon Wie heisst der Buff genau im Zauberbuch und wie heisst er in der Buffleiste neben der Minimap? Ich befürchte das die Namen nicht mehr identisch sind.

  • #108

    Nope nothing else is bound to mouse scrolls, and if I disable SB I can scroll as fast as I want with no adverse effects. :(

  • #109

    I had the same error that Thoril had. Yes, downloading the beta version fixed it for me. Just to let you know :)

    Thanks for a great addon!

  • #110

    Installed the Beta, and the error is gone ^^

  • #111

    Beide Namen lauten:


    Am Rande: Ich meine mich zu erinnern das ich auch die Localisierung von 2 Waffenbuffs ändern musste, die korrekten Namen sind:

    Waffe des Windzorns Waffe des Felsbei195159ers

    (Backslashs funktionieren nicht, also "Waffe des Felsbeißers")

    Kann aber auch sein das das in der letzten Version war und ich es schon geändert wurde.

    Hab festgestellt, dass SB nicht automatisch gänderte Schritfarten und Größen beim Login einstellt. Dazu muss man erst einmal die Optionen öffnen bevor das passiert. Sonst wird nur die Standardschrift genutzt.

  • #113

    Danke für das nette Addon - es hat die schlechte Buffmoral bei uns Paladinen in unsere Gilde deutlich verbessert. Was wir nur sehr gerne hätten wäre, dass man irgendwie ein kompletten Rebuff erzwingen kann (durch ein zweites Makro, welches wir dann erstellen müssten). Vor Bosskämpfen sieht es des öfteren so aus, dass Buffs z.B. nur noch 2-3 Minuten laufen, und infight buffen ist dann auch nicht so fein, gerade wenn man so oder so immer vor Bossen kurze Pausen halten.

    Wäre nett, wenn man sich darüber mal gedanken machen könnte ;)

  • #114

    I get the same thing Tinrah

  • #115

    The errors are fixed in the the new version 1.11b, so download it ;)

  • #116

    Hab auch einen Nil Error in Zeile: 1217

    (Nach update auf 11b).
