Bartender 4: Apathy Skin

Masque is a button enhancement engine that will skin the buttons of add-ons that support its features.

Note: You must have an add-on that supports Masque installed in order to use it.


  1. Browse to your add-ons folder. This should be located at World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns.
  2. Remove any existing Masque and/or ButtonFacade folders.
  3. Download the package.
  4. Extract or copy the contents of the package to your add-ons folder, exactly as they appear in the package.
  5. Log into the game. At the character select screen, click the Addons button and make sure that Masque is enabled.


  • Access the options panel via the /msq or /masque chat commands, or the Interface Options Window.


  • Add-on X is outdated and doesn't work with Masque anymore. Can you fix it?

No. If an author stopped development of an add-on, it's probably best that you find a replacement. I will not maintain special compatibility code for add-ons that aren't being maintained.

  • I created a skin for Masque. Now what?

Upload your skin to either WoW Interface or Curse and then post a link to the skin on this page.


Masque's documentation can be found here.

    Hendrik Leppkes: - Add Masque skinning support. As I said, I can disable button facade and every setting gets applied correctly except the border.

    @sontix: Go

    Bartender4 has not been updated to work without the ButtonFacade module so you'll need to leave it enabled.

    i have disabled everything but maque, maque renaitre, bartender4 and button facade. the problem is reproduced when i disable buttonfacade. this means that just with masque bartender4 cannot support it the right way

    While only masque is active (without the buttonfacade module active) if i change any parameter (usually the gloss) the buttons retrieve the correct border skin

    Disable everything but Masque, ButtonFacade and Bartender 4. Log into the game. If the problem persists, let me know. Otherwise, there's something else causing the issue. Enable the others one at a time until you can reproduce the problem. Note that most users find this fixed after doing the first part. I have yet to be able to run down the problem.

    I think it's a problem in bartender4, but everytime i reload the UI or enter the world if there's a skin applied with Masque, the border gets reset and the skin settings ignored.

    As a correction, I only lowered by one point, not two. It seems Blizzard lowered it by one at some point. It used to be set at 15, but now it's 14. I have it set to 13.

    You are right, of course, that it isn't necessarily a problem. Mostly, it just caught my eye because things looked different, and I thought I'd report it in case it was a bug. Anyways, now I now how to change it in case I decide to. Thanks for the reply and the great work on the addon.

    Since Masque now allows skin authors to adjust the font and font size, I made some tweaks to the default font sizes. The Count size was relatively larger than the other fonts and looked disproportionate even on the default skin. I reduced the default size of it by two points. I don't see how this is a problem.

    Since upgrading from ButtonFacade to Masque, the stack size on the icons on Bartender4 is smaller. Previously, the stack number would show with the same font size whether ButtonFacade was enabled. Now it shows with a smaller font size when Masque is enabled. Any idea why? Is anyone else having this problem?

    There's two lines in DebuffFilter.lua that look like this:


    Comment them out. IE, change them to:
