Eth's Buff Bars

49,713 Downloads Last Updated: Feb 10, 2013 Game Version: latest

The addon is currently being rewritten from scratch, both to improve performances and allow more features to get in. The end goal is to provide an addon that can display your buffs in any way you want with complete freedom on customization to decide where each buff should appear (even in multiple places or not at all) and how the buff should look (form, size, colors)
It's quite a long process, the buff display part is more or less complete at the moment and I "just" have the UI left to create (which is probably the longest part to get it done right)

Buff Bars in action

A few videos of kills made by players using the buff bars, if you made a nice one, feel free to send me a link to add it here

Quick How-To

  • Left-click and drag'n'drop the addon's icon at the desired location
  • Right-click it to open settings (or type /ebb in chat)
  • Configure what buffs (or debuffs) you want to track on yourself and your offensive/defensive target
  • While settings window is open, drag the dummy bars around to set where real buffs should be displayed (and use mouse wheel to change the size of the buff bars)
  • Profit!

Advanced Users

You can change the color of buff bars by adding an hexadecimal color code after the buff name. Example: if you want Breaching Shot's buff bar to appear in pink, instead of entering "Breaching Shot" in the buff list, enter "Breaching Shot#E81067" instead.

Find more of my TSW mods on, that has a few nifty tools for the game: an item/mission/... database, a tool to calculate glyph stats and more to come.
