 Bigger Buffs

(updated for 8.0)

Script that tweaks raid frames to change buffs appearance and behavior. Why would you stick with default frames? Ease of configuration and predictability are some of the pros. You don't need to add a list of "debuffs to watch" on every raid tier.

Type /bigger ingame for options.

  • Can increase buffs' size
  • Can show more buffs

Settings:

/bigger scale 15 - Changes the scale factor. 11 is Blizzard default. 15 is addon default.

/bigger maxbuffs 5 - Changes the maximum number of buffs. 3 is Blizzard and addon default.

/bigger rowsize 4 - Changes the number of buffs per row (3 is minimum and default)

Edit "CooldownsData.lua" if you'd like any additional buffs (from yourself) to show, like azerite traits.

Known issues

  • Due to limitations, if someone joins the raid while in combat, your raid frames will
    be broken. In order to alleviate that, install the AMAZING Blizzard Raid Antidote

  • If a frame is not updated, you can try switching between two raid profiles (out of combat).

Update notes

v18: Split buffs in multiple rows. `/bigger rowsize`. Thanks @fayap

v17: Def CDs removed due to bad performance. Suggest: use cooldowns on Raidframe by Nnogga weakaura

v16: Some fixes on personal buffs

v15: Defensive Buffs are back

v14: Basic BFA support
