About 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.

    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.

    I updated the addon for a TOC bump, if you encounter any errors or problems please let me know.

    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. :)

    thank you!

    Just uploaded 1.79 that -should- work fine. Let me know. 



  • #100

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

  • #98

    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.



  • #96

    Do you have any plans of updating this addon? I really enjoy it. :)

  • #95


    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.

  • #92

    Threw out a quick update to revert the 1.77 changes, because people do use it to view dispell-able buffs as well for non mages.

    If you don't like it showing up on your non mage toons, you can disable addons per toon at the character select screen. (Don't be so lazy!)

    How I can disable spam from this adon? I recorded each spell stolen in the chat. How's it going off?

  • #89

    Great Addon, I really love it!

    I question thou:

    Can I change the lui file to make the spellstealerframe showing buffs from my focustarget instead of my target? If yes, what do I need to change?

    Ah I understand the developer is inactive due to his now newborn baby, varmly congratulation! :)

    -> If anyone else here knows what I can do to change the spellsteal info showing from maintarget to focus target, please let me know :)

    Kindly regards
