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.

    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

    You could do it, but it wouldn't be simple and easy, and I really have no plans on adding more to the addon except to keep it updated. My WoW account is still ( and will remain) inactive. :)


  • #85

    I will see about making it an option in a future update; Just threw out a quick patch for the below complaint(s) about it showing up on other classes.

    I actually don't play WoW anymore, and my account is inactive.. no time to play with a newborn ( not to mention the cost of diapers!) but I'll keep updates as best I can. Just no way to test them. :)

    Change the title of the window to "Dispellable" if it's not a mage.  Having an option to disable it from within the addon (rather than disable the addon entirely) would be fine.  I certainly won't be updating to this version!

  • #84

    I like the fact that this is loading on other classes with a dispel.  It shows enrages I can remove while on my druid, items to dispell or purge with my priest and shaman.  Makes it a lot more useful to classes other than mages.  I'll forgo the 1.77 update in order to keep the functionality for all classes.

  • #83

    This is a really handy addon but it also shows up when I'm on my hunter and priest.

  • #82

    I just got done testing this myself in 4.3, and it works fine. I'm not sure why its not working for some of you.

    Do you have 'Load Out of Date Addons' enabled?

  • #79

    /ss only brings up 4 options, none of which allow one to disable for a specific character. I dont need to know what spell are stealable when I am on a toon that can't spellsteal....the box just gets in the way.

  • #86

    Actually, if it shows up on a non-mage character, that means you can DISPELL it rather than steal it.

    If you don't want it showing up at all, even for things you can dispell (e.g. Soothe as a druid for enrage effects such as Vengeance, Enrage, etc), then just disable it from that character (in the Addon enable/disable section), but frankly I'd think you'd appreciate that it pops up what you can dispell.
