About WeakAuras 2

WeakAuras 2

WeakAuras is a powerful and flexible framework that allows you to display highly customizable graphics on your screen to indicate buffs, debuffs, and a whole host of similar types of information. It was originally meant to be a lightweight replacement for Power Auras, but it now incorporates many features that Power Auras does not, while still remaining more efficient and easy to use.

Features include:

  • An intuitive and powerful configuration interface
  • Custom textures including all textures from Power Auras and the new Cataclysm spell alerts
  • Progress bars and textures that show the exact duration of auras
  • Displays based on auras, health, power (mana, rage, soul shards, holy power, etc.), cooldowns, combat events, runes, totems, items, and many other triggers
  • Preset and user-defined animations
  • Custom side-effects such as chat announcements or sounds
  • Grouping, which allows multiple displays to be positioned and configured at the same time
  • CPU optimizations such as conditional loading/unloading of displays, modularity, and prevention of full aura scanning
  • Powerful customization options, such as animation paths, on-show/on-hide code, and custom triggers, for Lua-savvy users

To open the options window, type "/wa" or "/weakauras"

Note: WeakAuras works better with more media!

    Sorry if this has already been said in the comments, I had some problems on some of my alts getting their Weak Auras to show- found out that a new setting called 'Dungeon Difficulty' under load was selected for each of my auras. Unchecking that fixed the problem!

    Adding custom sounds , using the SharedMedia plugin, is not working, i have tried several times, and a multitude of combinations, the sound files were all .OGG format, short ones also.

    I have also tried with .mp3 format, with no avail.Another tries i have performed was to place teh sound files directly into the Weak Auras 2 sound folder, with no results.

    After that I placed the sound file in the wow (root) and in wow general addon folder, same,  with no results.

    Could you please take a look into this ?

    Thank you for this addon !

    Placing them to \World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\WeakAuras\PowerAurasMedia\Sounds works for me.

    I also have the problem that I can not edit my wa (right box is just empty) and that I can not import weakauras (I just get an empty group).
    I tried the newest version, I tried an older one, I deleted WTF, Cache and Addons. Nothing helped. Currently I am using a german client.

    Can't acess any of my loaded / not loaded WA can't do anything with them.

  • #665

    I had to roll back to a 6.1 as well cause it was breaking Tauntmaster2 Not sure why but it was causing the names to drop behind the bars.

    I managed to get it working by instaling the 6.1 version and loading out of date addons.

    This isn't a solid method but hopefully they will fix it up soon enough.

    Same problem here

  • #656

    My weekauras is not working. Since the patch I have not being able to load anything. I can create icons but nothing works on my loading. Also I cannot import. I copy paste the text to the import window and then nothing happens. Could you please help as this addon is important to help me play. 


    Quick notes: To install 6.2 I deleted all my WTF, CACHE and Interface folders. All my addons were installed fresh after the game patched.

  • #657

    I not able to see my auras too.

    i redownloaded the addon again from here, and it works for me.

  • #660

    Were you able to import?
