About Grid

Grid is a set of compact unit frames for dungeoning/raids. It is primarily targeted at healers, but other classes may also want to use it as an indicator of how well their raid group is doing. The addon is currently undergoing major redesign and will only do bugfixes and minor feature requests. Stay tuned for the future!

Grid is not currently a replacement for the stock GroupFrame addon.

Latest update: (v0.25) Yes, I'm still on this, in a sense. The "v2" is not coming along at all currently. It never may. I was too ambitious with it.


As you can probably tell, it's heavily inspired by two WoW addons, namely Grid, the namesake of my addon(no other affiliation), and VuhDo. To a very limited extent, it also aspires to features of Clique.


  • Displays a health bar for every party member in a nice and compact format. It is intended to be placed in the area around your cast bar for maximum efficiency.
  • Acts as an interface for targeted skills (usually heals). Simply mouse over the frame of a unit in need, and hit the appropriate hotkey on your LAS. The addon automatically targets the unit you are mousing over to facilitate healing with as little inputs as possible. I find it works well by binding the relevant skill LAS button to a tertiary mouse button (middle mouse, extra buttons, +/- modifier keys). Note that the addon will automatically reset to your previous target once your mouse leaves the grid area. This behaviour can be changed in the option dialogue.
  • Shows a range indicator for your group members. Units that are further than (default 35m, reverie range) away from you get faded out. Helps knowing if you will heal that low health DPS at the other end of the room with your finisher or not.
  • Aggro indicators to let you know who is currently tanking a mob.
  • "dispellable debuff" indicator. It displays one debuff per unit that can be dispelled, and will pick the one with the most time left on it.
  • An arrow pointing in the general direction of where on earth that low health group member is hiding from your heals.
  • Lastly, in the top left, there is an interrupt armor/"is currently being CCed"/Is out of focus multi-purpose indicator.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated. If you get a crash, please copy+paste the stack trace into your report and I will fix it asap. You are also more than welcome to post feature requests, I will always see what I can do.

  • Yet more settings, always more settings!
  • Ready check/assigned roles indicators
  • Incoming heals preview (hard due to telegraphed nature of skills)
  • Fully configurable indicators ("if unit.focus < 25%/ if unit has a certain debuff, display a blue square in the top left") - planned for the next major release (read: not soon)
  • Account-wide profiles
  • Right click dropdown menues?
  • Editable unit groups?
  • Enemy/Focus/Pet frames?
  • Proper mouseover healing without the targeting workaround - sadly this is not something I can do, but perhaps Carbine will surprise us with this feature in a future patch

Known Bugs

  • Click to select and locking the frames will make Grid swallow mouse input (you can no longer right-click to rotate the camera while hovering over it) Cannot fix?
  • Aggro tracking breaks if you do not witness the friendly unit entering combat. This happens most frequently with stalker tanks. Cannot fix/API bug.

*stirs in his rest*

- bump API version to 11

- fix crash when calling deprecated Get(Max)Mana

    Hi. Thanks for the addon.

    I would like to use it for healing, so i have something to add to the wishlist:

    A command to show / hide (or even better toggle) would be nice so i can turn it on when healing and turn it off when dpsing.

  • #159

    Any way to add an option to change the names displayed? Would love to just see first names.

  • #158

    I don't know how difficult it would be, but I think adding the option to toss an Icon onto the individual frames would be a godsend, well, this addon already is a godsend for esper healing.

    If you could add into the right click drop down menu(if you still plan to do that) the ability to place the standard Shield, Sword, or plus sign to the frames, it'll help out with designation so you don't have to always search for the name. Even better would be to have the ability to group frames as well, but baby steps.


    Either way, this addon helps a ton and any nit picks I have are just simple QoL changes.


    Edit-Just read over your to-do list and see you already have this planned. So I jumped the gun, any ETA on the role indication by chance? No rush if you don't know.


    Thank you very much for creating this.

    I really love the addon but the colors are killing me =(. i cant seem to change what i want. How can i change the background color when heal is missing...for example i wanted to make my standard color black and then background red so i can see their health bar very clearly. Thanks

  • #156

    Will there be a way to allow right clicking of people in the grid menu without having them nearby? For instance to kick someone who disconnected and is no longer in group? It currently seems like it specifically disables right clicking on grid icons unless they are near.

    Great addon nontheless!

  • #155

    Anyway to fix some performance issues, its eating performance like crazy / Also can you enable a disable when out of combat option.

    Thank you so much for updating Grid! This is the best addon ever! Keep up the good work.

  • #152

    Doesn't work for me. It's the first mod I tried installing with curse client. 

    It doesn't load because it says it's API9. When I force load it, lots of errors appear:

    ...AppData\Roaming\NCSOFT\WildStar\Addons\Grid\Grid.lua:708: attempt to call method 'GetMana' (a nil value)
    stack trace:
    ...AppData\Roaming\NCSOFT\WildStar\Addons\Grid\Grid.lua:708: in function 'UpdateMiscIndicators'

    ...AppData\Roaming\NCSOFT\WildStar\Addons\Grid\Grid.lua:828: in function 

    ..... and more

  • #153

    I've seen the problem, this website lists v0.25, but curse client installs v0.24

    Why is that?

  • #150

    *stirs in his rest*

    Yes, I'm still around, after a fashion. No, the v2 I promised will probably never come in the form I envisioned. I was too ambitious with it. Maybe I'll smack in a few small features/perf improvements at some point, I don't know. No promises. Yes, this may include the official class colors, I am only so stubborn.
