About UmberRunes

I always wanted an addon for my interface to allow me to drag my Death Knight runes around. But every addon that I found used custom textures for the runes, which annoyed me. Therefor I have made this addon that uses the default Blizzard interface runes, which allows you to drag your runes around and show additional information.

'/umber' will bring up the list of available commands.

To scale components, use '/umber lock' to unlock the frame, and then hold the right mousebutton on a component to set its scale. Moving the mouse upwards whilst holding rightclick will increase the component's scale, and downwards will decrease it. Additionally, you can set the entire scale at once using '/umber setscale [number]'.
This is the addon in normal form, it shows the Death Knight's runes.
Additionally, you can enable more info such as disease timers on current target and Runic Power.
The addon can also display Blood Tap stacks, which will emphasize when you have accumulated enough stacks to Blood Tap.
This addon can also show a little effect when Soul Reaper is off cooldown and your target's health is below 35%.
Finally, this addon can also display information about the current target including health and class specific energy.

The additional components can be toggled on and off individually.
The addon is fully draggable and scaleable.
This addon only works for Death Knights.

The interface can be set to hide automatically when out of combat.

Diseases and abilities are tracked in any language.

For additional questions and information,
I can be contacted on Kazzak under the name Umberwaugh.

1.7.5 - 6.2:

  • Supporting World of Warcraft patch 6.2.


  • Removed swing timers.
  • Soul Reaper alert will now show up when target is at propper percentage, regardless of cooldown.
  • Soul Reaper propperly shows up at 45% for Unholy Death Knights with the Improved Soul Reaper ability.
  • Disease tracker will show Necrotic Plague for Death knights with the Necrotic Plague ability.

1.7.5 - 6.1:

  • Supporting World of Warcraft patch 6.1.


  • Added support for game patch 6.0.2.
  • Fixed an issue where the addon was no longer draggable.


  • Added position text in coordinates when dragging addon around.


  • Removed presence indicator.
  • Fixed an issue where dragging the addon around was affected by the active GUI scale.


  • Target frame now also shows target player classes.


  • Added visual texture on health bars for blood mastery and other absorbs.


  • Changed font color for visibility purposes.
  • Enemy info now shows the color of the energy type that the target uses.
  • Fixed an issue where presences were not displayed propperly on non-english clients.
  • Added a swing timer for 2H Frost Death Knights to predict possible killing machine procs. Note that parrying affects the melee swing time.
  • Added timers on the runes. Can be enabled with /umber toggletimers


  • Fixed an issue where Blood Tap stack display wouldn't hide when disabled.


  • Added an additional feature to track the amount of stacks on Blood Tap. It will show a Blood Tap icon at the bottom of the addon which will light up once you have equal or more than 5 stacks of Blood Charge. This feature can be rescaled, enabled and disabled like the rest.


  • Fixed an issue where the Soul Reaper alert would show up on dead targets.


  • Replaced localization of diseases with the Spell ID's. Because of this, UmberRunes can now track diseases in every language. This also fixed the issue of French clients not tracking Frost Fever (Fièvre de givre).
  • Added a new Effect behind the runes that shows up when you can use Soul Reaper. This will show up as soon as your current target's health is below 35% and your Soul Reaper is off cooldown. This can be toggled on or off using /umber togglesoulreaper. On by default.

  • Supporting World of Warcraft patch 5.1.


  • Fixed an issue where UmberRunes conflicted with Titan Panel addon.


  • Added a toggle feature for the disease tracking icons.
  • Added a toggle feature to toggle between player info and just a Runic Power bar. Use /umber toggleplayerinfo to toggle.
  • Added a scale feature for the different components. Use /umber lock to unlock the frame and then rightclick a component to set its scale. Dragging upwards will increase and downwards will decrease its size.
  • Added an instant scale feature. Use /umber setscale [number] to instantly set the scale of all components to the number. (A value between 0 and 5, 1 is default).
  • Changed the target hitpoints bar. If the target has less than 100 million hitpoints, the bar will also show the target's max hitpoints.
  • Fixed the frame dragging which will now react more smooth to the players input.


  • UmberRunes now uses its own set of rune-icons. Because of this, it will work in combination with unitframe addons such as X-Perl.
  • Added a debuff time animation to the disease tracking.

1.0.2: MoP

  • Works with patch 5.0.4.


  • Fixed a bug where the interface would appear in the left bottom corner of the screen on first use.

    Great addon!

    But it seems to be a problem with the timers caused by the default numbers of Blizzard's cooldown frame. To fix it just set SetHideCountdownNumbers to be true on frames that inherit CooldownFrameTemplate to stop the cooldown timers overlap.

  • #65

    Is there a way to make the Bliz default cooldown numbers (or any cooldown addon) NOT show up on UmberRunes? I want to see cooldown counts on my action bars but not see it on UmberRunes. ty!

  • #64

    Can you make this addon compatible with Omnicc?


  • #63

    toggletimers are broken

  • #62

    Can we please get back swingtimer as it's a must-have for frost?

  • #60

    Hello, would you be able to make it possible to re-order the runes the way we want? I would prefer to have the order frost-unholy-blood myself. Thanks.

  • #59

    Can you do something for the Unholy Dk's? (soul reaper at 45%)

  • #61

    Hi Badass,

    Thanks for pointing this out, the issue has been fixed in the latest version which will arrive shortly.

  • #58

    Great addon, ecatly what I needed. However I can't seem to hide the runes when out of combat. I toggle it on and off but it never goes away.

  • #57

    Is there an option to change the texture on the Runic Power bar? I would like to set it to Minimalist.

  • #56

    There's a few of things i'd like to see when it comes to this addon. A options window so it's more convinient for the person to configure the addon. And also more options to hide one or more components like for an instance the runes itself I one should wish for it. There could also be a fade option for the runes if they are on cd. Having different models on the runes itself would be cool as well. Other than that it's a great addon and I hope you continue improving it :)

  • #55

    This is the best DK add-on imo. I've tried all of the recommended popular ones and didn't really like any of them nearly as much as this. Great work.

    Only thing I'd potentially like to see is the ability to resize the runic power bar and the health bar independently of everything else. I've made the runes into a size I wanted but the runic bar is still a tad too small and I can't make it bigger without making the runes even larger. Not a big deal but would be nice. Or is this possible already?

    Hey! Great addon that ive been using for a while now.

    However, there is an issue with the "runecooldown clockface". It wont go away even when i disabled the runes cooldown and when i set the addon to fade out when out of combat.

    Pic for reference:

    Any way to fix this? Its quite annoying :)

    Otherwise, great work!

  • #54
