ZOMGBuffs

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

Raid Popup, bright icons show missing raid buffs.

All in one buffing mod for all classes, overview of important raid buffs and instant access rebuff on right click.

Main Mod

  • Responsible for loading class specific modules.
  • Has FuBar/Minimap icon for options menu (Sorry, I just don't like Waterfall at all), and info tooltip.
  • Single click minimap icon to quickly enable/disable auto-buffing.
  • Raid popup list with complete buff overview (just mouseover the floating ZOMG icon).
    • Highlights missing buffs for whole raid at a glance.
    • Shows time remaining on your buffs on whole raid.
    • Allows instant rebuff with Right-Click as assigned by seperately loaded modules, without having to muck around finding the player in the raid frames.
    • Shows in-combat reminder (swirly thing around icon) if someone needs a rebuff mid-fight.
  • Auto Buy reagents to defined levels.

Self Buffs

  • Handles all self buffing needs including temporary weapon enchants and poisons.
  • Can remind you in-combat when something needs rebuffing.
  • Special cases to auto buff Crusader Aura for paladins when mounted, and aspect of cheetah for hunters in cities.

Buff Teh Raid

  • Group class buffing module for raid buffs (Mana, Kings, Stamina etc).
  • Allows you to define which groups you're responsible for.
  • Enable or Disable buffs by clicking on the minimap tooltip for that buff.
  • Selective buffing for single target raid buffs such as Thorns or Amplify/Dampen Magic.
  • Unique Buff Tracking icon for Earth Shield, Fear Ward, Hand of Freedom and Hand of Sacrifice, which allows you to keep close watch on these buffs and easily recast with a click.

Common Behaviour for Buffing modules

  • Manually casting a buff will be remembered (with a few exceptions which shouldn't) as the new required auto buff.
  • Click the tooltip sectoin for that mod will cycle through buffs.
  • Shift Clicking the tooltip section for that mod will remove it's entry from the template.
  • Template save/load/conditionals.
  • Simple mousewheel rebuffing in one common interface.
  • Simple Right-Click rebuffing of your defined buffs for whichever module you have loaded.
  • Definable pre-expiry rebuff setting.
  • Options to not buff when:
    • Not everyone in raid is present (definable to a % of people present).
    • Not everyone in a party is present.
    • You are resting.
    • You are low on mana.
    • You have the Spirit Tap buff (geiv mana regen!).

Thanks

As always, many thanks to our tireless raid leader for ignoring me going AFK at various points to fix some problem. And to our Paladins, without whom this mod would not have been possible without their constant downloading and re-downloading of early alphas.

Donations

While donations are not ever expected they do help, and recent donations by a kind few are one of the reasons I have returned at this time to resume work on this and other mods. Please do consider how worthwhile ZOMGBuffs is to you and help to continue it's support into the future.

    The way to debug errors that other people are not experiencing, dude: load the mod that is giving you errors _alone_ (with embedded or disembedded libs; make sure they are all updated), but with an error recorder active (i.e. BugGrabber/BugSack).

    If there are no errors, start enabling your other addons until you find out where the conflict is. Spamming the same thing over and over about a bug you run into with a mod isn't likely to get an author response; as Ackis said, file a ticket.

    I was running this for several months up until WoW 4.x hit today with no errors whatsoever and no problems either. I run literally hundreds of different mods & disembedded libs regularly. As well as test far more (have over 3900 folders for mods & libraries in \World of Warcraft\Addons\...heh). It was the most reliable buff mod of this type.

    But as of WoW 4.x, ZOMGBuffs is effectively dead. Buff Broker as mentioned is one alternative. Although that has serious computer resource problems (garbage collection/CPU usage) in 25-man raids that can cause lag, a problem that has yet to be addressed as of this date (from the author: "It's something that will change as I get more confident with Lua"). See the WoWI comments from Sept 27.

    Cork is another updated option, but without the resource problems. As is Buffwatch++.

    @ Makakoax....Doubtful there will be any updates to this or a version for Cataclysm.

    I have tested and tried it with the beta as well and NO! it does NOT work for Cataclysm...although it does not work fully for current Live version either...it has been consistently giving others and myself errors.

    I would recommend BuffBroker.

    or

    Is there going to be a cataclysm version? I am in the beta and am having to use pallypower. Please don't make me use PP :).

    I am willing to test on the beta if you need a tester.

    @ Ackis I have posted multiple tickets there as well...and even on other sites posting this addon....trying to get help and support for the addon. I believe a ways back i even submitted a ticket to you as well.

    Just jumping in here.

    This is not the place to post errors. Please use this projects ticketing system:

    @ Daedhir I get several diff ones...but this is the main repetitive error.

    I have gone thru and removed all addons...and gone thru them sytmatically to try to find a conflict...and all to no avail. Problem is ZomgBuffs...also others have reported and received the same problem. I also randomly try it again to see if any luck...and still same problem....so I just keep the error posted to keep it current and until they get fixed or someone gives support that helps fix it or so on.

    And by the way, ZOMGBuffs throws no errors in my UI setup. Perhape you have a conflict somewhere?

  • Avatar of Daedhir Daedhir Sep 12, 2010 at 07:52 UTC - 0 likes

    If it's the same error, do you really need to keep posting it?

    Or are you just trying to make a point?

  • Avatar of Doctor0Who Doctor0Who Aug 09, 2010 at 23:45 UTC - 0 likes

    Just to keep things current...still seeing the same error or errors...depending.

    I have to say at least BuffBroker is up to date and constantly maintained. Also, if or when errors do happen...at least they/we are responded too and the problem receives attention.

    Seriously, we need more from this addon and for there to be commmunication and attention to issues. Please provide assistance. Thanks.
