About SpellStealer

SpellStealer

This simple addon pops up a small frame with a list of stealable buffs on your current target,
it will only show up when the target is an enemy and has buffs you can steal.

It will also print in your main chatframe a link to the spell you stole in the format of 'You have stolen [spell] from <target>.'

There are only three commands.

/SS Announce - Toggles announcing to raid/party chat when you spellsteal something. Addon will detect which you are in, and announce appropriately. Defaults to OFF.
/SS Test - Shows the SS Frame with some fake buffs so you can position the window.
/SS Lock - Toggles frame locking / unlocking.

Note: Hold right click to move frame.
Type "/ss test" to enable/disable the test frame so you can move it into placed out of combat.

This addon has a very small memory and CPU footprint..I use it with Magefever for my Mage needs.

My thanks to b_buck for MageNuggets, which inspired this addon.

     I don't play a DK so I don't know exactly how it interacts with that spell. But theSS Frame will only disappear if there are no stealable buffs on them, Otherwise it will still be visible as long as you target someone that has at least one stealable buff.

     

    S Frame will only disappear

    I got a situation when i play with my Death Knight.

    When SS Frame appear at my screan i use the Dark Simulacron and it continues at my screan.

    I dont know but i think that SS Frame must disappear when u use a spell. It works with my mage, but with my DK no.

    Can u see this?

    Hi conundrum400,

       Thanks for answer me.

       The Dark Simulacrum just COPY a spell/buff from another ppl or non-ppl, like, for example, mirror image from mage or any healing spell from any class healer.

       If u say that the SS Frame only disappear if the spell is stolen and knowing that the Dark Simulacrum only copies and doesn't steal a spell, so why the SS Frame appears then? Is it a little bug? Is there a way to fix or improve this feature for DK too?

      I know that the SS Frame works well with my mage (SpellSteal) and my shaman (Purge).

    Hello,

    Nice addon...been using it for a while. I seem to have some issues with the position of SS lately. After a relog/exit, it resets to the middle of my screen very often. It doesn't matter if I move it back with /ss unlock, move, /ss test etc.

    Any idea on how to fix? Thanks

    I've seen this before, not sure what causes it exactly. I will look into it some more, though.

    Awesome Addon!

    I just wanted to say how much I LOVE this addon! Before I started using it a couple years ago, it was nearly impossible to tell when there were spells I could steal, and now it's one of my most-loved spells! Thank you, not only for the excellent job in first creating it, but also in keeping it updated despite no longer playing. You rock! :)

    People like you, who love my addon and still find it useful, are the reason I keep it up to date despite not playing WoW anymore.

    Thank you for your kind words. :)

    Wow.  You don't even play the game, but you still took the time to update this amazing addon.  Kudos to you!  Thank you.

    Need update for 5.0.4 patch please! I love this addon, it's a godsend for my mage!

  • #97

    Just give me a little time to work on it. :)

    I haven't played WoW in awhile, (playing Vanguard now actually) and my WoW account is inactive. I'm going to try to fix the addon without reactivating, because I don't want to spend $15 needlessly.

    Just letting you know that this is broken with 5.0.4.   It causes some crazy FPS lag, etc.

    Thanks for the addon!   Been using it a awhile.
