Marking Bar Lives


MarkingBarLives is an addon to help players use raid markers in parties and raids. It is designed to be simple and easy to use, while offering a wide variety of options without taking up a lot of memory.


The original MarkingBar went a long time without updates since 2015 and now some features became broken with many patches later. I used this addon many years and decided that I would upload a corrected version of this addon to share.



  • Quickly mark and unmark the current target by clicking the symbol you want to assign or remove.
  • Perform a Ready Check.
  • Perform a Role Check.
  • Announce your current marking system to instance, party, or raid chat. These messages can be customized through the gear icon or /mb options.
  • While in a instance, party, or raid, place the raid flare/world markers.
  • Each frame can be moved anywhere on screen and locked in place.
  • Frames can have the icon order reversed or be stacked vertically.
  • Frames can have the border and background completely hidden.
  • Tooltips can be turned on and off.
  • Tooltips can be turned on or off for announcement messages.
  • Show the frames all the time, or only while you have a target.
  • Show/hide the frames while alone, in a party, or in a raid group.
New features in progress, coming soon:
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and memory improvements.
  • Ability to clear single flares/world markers over clearing all markers.
