RUF is a configurable Unit Frame addon using oUF. RUF isn't as fully featured as some unit frames, but should also use less resources while playing than most unit frame addons too.


Some more recent examples


  • Supports Player, Pet, Target, Pet's Target, Target's Target, Target's Target's Target, Party, Party Targets, and Party Pets.
  • Nickname - Like Details! In fact, this is synced with Details! This will sync to other people using RUF or Details! (or any other addon that supports NickTag-1.0)
  • Custom indicator status icons in place of the standard ones. These are icons such as PvP stats, Target Marks etc.
  • Buff and Debuff icons with optional type and dispellable highlighting and basic filtering. (more advanced filtering coming later)
  • Frame Highlighting for dispellable auras (debuffs on friendly units, or buffs on enemy units)
  • Cast Bars for Player, Target, and Focus frames.
  • Class Resource bar - Holy Power, Runes, Stagger etc. (Combo Points in Classic)
  • Range Fading & Combat Fading
  • Heal Prediction
  • 3D animated portraits
  • Several pre-configured layouts to choose from in the profile section.
  • Optional RGB Rainbows!

Classic Support


RUF supports Classic, but requires my modified version of oUF to function. This is included with RUF on Curseforge automatically. As such, you should ensure that you do not have oUF installed separately as it's own addon. (This doesn't matter for Live users, only Classic users)


Buffs & Debuffs do not return information about their duration in classic, so RUF uses LibClassicDurations in Classic to provide this information. It's included with RUF when you download it from Curseforge and works automatically. If you want to see numbers on RUF's buffs or debuffs, you'll want to grab OmniCC or TullaCC as well.

Any issues with auras showing incorrect durations should be directed to LibClassicDurations.


In Classic, you cannot reliably determine non-player casting information. RUF uses LibClassicCasterino in Classic to provide this information. It's included with RUF when you download it from Curseforge and works automatically.

Any issues with castbars showing incorrect cast durations should be directed to LibClassicCasterino.


Heal Prediction isn't part of the classic API, so RUF uses LibHealComm-4.0 in Classic to provide this information.

Any issues with heal prediction showing incorrect values should be directed to LibHealComm-4.0.

Copying Profiles from Live to Classic

RUF Classic should work with the same profiles you have on live. To do so, you'll want to copy your saved settings from the the retail folder to the classic folder. You'll then need to just set your profile in the RUF config window in game.

Example paths:

WOW INSTALL LOCATION\_retail_\WTF\Account\ACCOUNT NAME\SavedVariables\RUF.lua

WOW INSTALL LOCATION\_classic_\WTF\Account\ACCOUNT NAME\SavedVariables\RUF.lua


You can configure RUF by typing /ruf in game.

  • Usability of the configuration options will improve with time with the ability to copy and paste settings from unit to unit.
