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  • Add-on X is outdated and doesn't work with Masque anymore.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

    Bagnon moved its buttonfacade support to a separate addon. You need to download Bagnon Facade.

    Strangely enough, I have both of those addons (ButtonFacade & Masque) enabled. The only addon that is not being affected (since last update) is Bagnon.

    Edit: I've tried reverting back to previous versions, but it appears that this did not fix the issue. Perhaps Bagnon changed something in the most recent update (6 days ago) that is causing this problem.

    Jyces, make sure that you have the included ButtonFacade add-on installed and enabled. This small add-on controls the bridge between add-ons using the old API and Masque.

    With the most recent update, Masque is no longer working for Bagnon. Not even showing it under the list of options under Masque. :o

    @skyesfury: Go

    You can download an old version from the Files section, but it won't be compatible with any add-ons or skins that get updated to the new API.

    And what do you mean it "screwed up your UI"?

    Is there a way to revert back to ButtonFacade since Masque isn't changing the skins of anything? This update screwed my UI.

    If you have an issue, please post a ticket.

    @corim75: Go

    This is fixed in the latest alpha.

    @rb4havoc: Go

    The only thing Masque does actively is check and adjust the shape of the Spell Alert. If you're changing skins or skin settings, you will lose frame rate because Masque is adjusting the layers of every single button. Outside of that, I've not noticed any frame rate issues.

    I also had noticeable slowdown in my framerate in addition to the issue with autobar not showing up with this new update. Going back to r357 fixed the issue for now.
