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

    how could I use poison to main weapon and 'second' weapon in Smartbuff?

    in the old version, rouge can set poison to main or second weapon, but new version move the function out....

    so, how to set smartbuff to set poison?

  • #123

    The poisons are only available in the menu, if you have one in your inventory. This applies to oils and stones also.

  • #124

    Hiya, I DLed and ran SmartBuff for almost a week now, but today it stopped buffing blessings for my paladin, it still start Aura's and Find Minerals, but don't do blessings anymore.

    I have tried deleting my SavedVariables file for SmartBuff and still no luck...

    Any Ideas?

    Edit: Never mind, I didn't have Blessings in a action bar.... I put em on a hidden one now and they work...

  • #125

    Hiya! I grew kind of upset of the lag associated with changing targets (and buffing when changing targets) and rewrote the buff-casting to be much more target friendly:


  • #126

    My son the druid says that SmartBuff won't cast Thorns while in MoonKin form. Apparently they can do that now.

  • #127

    Hallo pierre7c2,

    Bei mir das Gleiche, Stehe vor Boss, Buffs noch 1,5 Mins aktiv. Mache /sb rbt und hoffe dann neu buffen zu können, geht aber nicht.

    Here is the good code for FR Pallys ^^

    -- Paladin SMARTBUFF_PALADIN = { }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[1] = {"Fureur vertueuse", 30, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[2] = {"Bouclier divin", 0.165, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[3] = {"B\195\169n\195\169diction de puissance", 5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_GROUP, {4,12,22,32,42,52,60}, "DRUID;MAGE;PRIEST;SHAMAN;WARLOCK;WPET", "B\195\169n\195\169diction de puissance sup\195\169rieure", 15, {52,60}, {"Symbole des rois","Symbole des rois"} }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[4] = {"B\195\169n\195\169diction de sagesse", 5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_GROUP, {14,24,34,44,54,60}, "ROGUE;SHAMAN;WARRIOR;HPET;WPET", "B\195\169n\195\169diction de sagesse sup\195\169rieure", 15, {54,60}, {"Symbole des rois","Symbole des rois"} }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[5] = {"B\195\169n\195\169diction de salut", 5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_GROUP, {26}, "SHAMAN;WARRIOR;HPET;WPET", "B\195\169n\195\169diction de salut sup\195\169rieure", 15, {60}, {"Symbole des rois"} }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[6] = {"B\195\169n\195\169diction des rois", 5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_GROUP, {20}, "SHAMAN;WPET", "B\195\169n\195\169diction des rois sup\195\169rieure", 15, {60}, {"Symbole des rois"} }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[7] = {"B\195\169n\195\169diction du sanctuaire", 5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_GROUP, {30,40,50,60}, "DRUID;HUNTER;MAGE;PRIEST;ROGUE;SHAMAN;WARLOCK;HPET;WPET", "B\195\169n\195\169diction du sanctuaire sup\195\169rieure", 15, {60}, {"Symbole des rois"} }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[8] = {"B\195\169n\195\169diction de lumi\195\168re", 5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_GROUP, {40,50,60}, "SHAMAN;WPET", "B\195\169n\195\169diction de lumi\195\168re sup\195\169rieure", 15, {60}, {"Symbole des rois"} }; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[9] = {"Sceau d'autorit\195\169", 0.5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[11] = {"Sceau de justice", 0.5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[12] = {"Sceau de lumi\195\168re", 0.5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[13] = {"Sceau de pi\195\169t\195\169", 0.5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[14] = {"Sceau de sagesse", 0.5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[15] = {"Sceau du crois\195\169", 0.5, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[16] = {"Aura de d\195\169votion", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[17] = {"Aura de vindicte", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[18] = {"Aura de concentration", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[19] = {"Aura de r\195\169sistance \195\160 l\'ombre", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[20] = {"Aura de r\195\169sistance au givre", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[21] = {"Aura de r\195\169sistance au feu", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN[22] = {"Aura de saintet\195\169", -1, SMARTBUFF_CONST_SELF}; SMARTBUFF_PALADIN_PATTERN = {"^Sceau d"};

    There was a small typo in Blessing of Light / Bénédiction de Lumière...

    Tested on the french client.

  • #129

    Here's a pain to code, but possibly useful. Any chance of adding individual named targets? In my raids, we have a few DPS warriors who want salvation; the tanks obviously don't, and I don't want to force them to click off buffs periodically, but there's not a great way to do this. I love SmartBuff, but I don't see a way to have a 5-minute individual buff on a particular named player. If it's there and I missed it, I'd love to hear about it!

  • #130

    Problem solved.

  • #131

    Sarf, I have a problem with the SmartBuff not remebering it's font settings when I log in, any chance you could take a peek at it ?

  • #132

    Just wanted to say, this is the best mod for raid buffing I have seen as of yet.

    I did a few requests that would make me uberly happy...

    1. Group specific checks for each buff instead of a global group check for all buffs. Unfortunately, not all of the priests in my guild pull their own weight and are speccd with divine spirit or improved fort. This usually means that I am responsible for buffing groups 1-4 with spirit and groups 1-3 with fort (as an example). I will occasionally buff (using the above example) group 4 with fort upsetting our priest leader because I am buffing groups I shouldnt be.

    2. Change the 'use group spell if x people need it' option to specific spells instead of a global setting. Some spells are more mana conservative with grouping if 2 or more need the buff, some are more conservative with 3.

    3. If possible (might be against the rules from Blizz regarding global cooldowns and macros), institute a bot buff option. I hit a button and the plugin begins buffing as specified in the options menu. When I dont have enough mana to continue buffing, the plugin will automatically drink a crystal water (or another item that could be specified in the options window). When Im done drinking, the plugin then does a simulated space bar press (makes me jump) so that I am again standing and continues to buff and drink until all groups are buffed according to the options I specified.

    4. Buff templates. I would like to have templates for buffing for specific bosses (shadow protection is completely unneccessary under most circumstances but occasionally is helpful). Another direction to go is to add a dropdown box when you click on the smartbuff icon by the minimap that displays all the buffs you are able to do and you can simply click the new buff you want to add or uncheck the buff to stop checking for it. Smartbuff would use the options you set for the buff in the options window.

    5. Target specific buff checks. Keeping Fear Ward on the Main Tank is where this option would really come in handy and I dont want it for all the warriors, just the MT or the OT (usually).

    Welcome back Aeldra :)

    Btw have you checked on Sarf's edited buff cast a bitdown the page ?


  • #134

    Any chance this could check for spirit tap and not rebuff inner fire until spirit tap has expired? (It'd help with the five-second rule for mana regen.)

  • #135

    It seems that this tree addons

    make smart buff not work

    any idea?

    problem found :) this is always in IF, SW,... and there is a setting don't buff in towns


  • #136

    Is it likely, that the racial ability of humans Perception (Wachsamkeit in DE) is included in the future? I know, it is of limited use, because of the high cooldown. But if the ability is not buffed automatically, I always forget it even exists :-)
