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  • Add-on X is outdated and doesn't work with Masque anymore.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.

    is there a WoD Beta in work? I get the following error when using Masque with the BETA:

    Message: Interface\AddOns\Masque\Libs\AceDB-3.0\AceDB-3.0.lua:263: bad argument #1 to 'sub' (string expected, got nil) Time: Thu Aug 14 12:37:34 2014 Count: 1 Stack: [C]: in function `sub' Interface\AddOns\Masque\Libs\AceDB-3.0\AceDB-3.0.lua:263: in main chunk

    Locals: (*temporary) = nil (*temporary) = 1 (*temporary) = 2 (*temporary) = "string expected, got nil"

    Nice addon!

    Hi StormFX. Nice addon, great job before all.

    Spotted a little bug, "circle" shape for buttons alert don't work anymore if we can specify Shape = "circle" on the addon, ingame it's showing always the same thing : square alert when procs.

    @timewitch: Go

    I did a quick search in the code and saw no references to Masque. Masque doesn't provide support for the default buttons (which AltUI seems to be using). You'll have to actually add Masque support to AltUI or find an add-on that adds Masque support to the default UI.

    Trying to get Masque to work with AltUi (which used to be Blizzartui and worked fine with ButtonFacade). No luck in any of the action bars from AltUi being skinned. Any help? I included a link to the addon below.

    I'll look into it.

    @Juldrew @StormFX

    Had same problem with latest version of Masque from curse. Kept over-writing my saved profiles with the default settings.

    Found the Masque addon folder. Edited Masque.lua line 57.


    Inherit = true,


    Inherit = false,

    So far with limited testing it went from always over-writing my profile config, to never doing that and restoring my masque config per alt once I redid each after making this change.

    @StormFX: Go got it, thanks a lot.

    @Juldrew: Go

    All I can think of is that either there's some issue with write permissions to the WoW/WTF directory or that you're not correctly logging out of the game. Add-on settings won't save if WoW crashes.

    Hi guys, I really really love this addon, but I have a big problem at the moment:

    Masque doesnt save my settings. I set everything up, log out, log in - everything is gone. ;-( I just tried r378 -but no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Help would be really appreciated!

    Thx, Julian|Germany
