    THX much first. Although we can arrange Raid Buffs easy, I still want u add function tt let's know the debuffs which plays can cast to BOSS to increase the Raid DPS. like increase magic damage +5%,increase melee damage +4%.

    Hiho, first of all - thank you for you addon - it helps us a great deal as rbs seems not to be up to date anymore. Nevertheless, I have some issues using it. The check (automatically via the ready check or by hand) for buff food and flasks works nice, but if there are major buffs missing it is not stated in any chatwindow at all.

    Have i missed some option in the menu or is this intended? I mean, i see that the buff is missing in the buff monitor, but there is no reminder I used to know from rbs.

    @JStrese: Go

    Yes, I'm well aware of the available debuffs. I've considered adding some support for debuffs, but have decided it's beyond the scope of what BigBrother should do. It doesn't really help much for a buff monitor to show all the debuffs your raid comp MIGHT cast, unless you're going to force raid members to respec in order to change that list. Even if you did it wouldn't be accurate for any split-dps fights like Heroic Morchok. All of the important debuffs are now applied by the standard rotation, so it's not like you have to yell at raid members to press extra buttons to be the debuff bitch for their raid. Monitoring and somehow displaying the debuffs ACTUALLY cast in combat is far complicated, and situational as well - definitely beyond the scope of a simple buff monitor.

    If you're looking for a tool to help you PLAN your raid comp around buffs and debuffs, I highly recommend:

    Is there a chance that we could see what available debuffs the raid has? I don't expect it to track whether or not they are actually used, but rather just available with the current composition.

    All you would have to do is check the spec of the player instead of their auras. For a list of raid debuffs and what class/spec brings them:


    Could you also add an option to disable announcing to raid chat when in LFR?

    v3.7.0 adds initial support for Wow v5.0. Thanks for your patience.

    I'll be working on more 5.x related tweaks and additional features in the weeks to come, please report any problems in the WowAce Ticket system.

    I can confirm this, "Buffs" can be translated "Mejoras" or "Beneficios", we consider this as synonyms.

    Any plans to update this for 5.x? I've updated my local copy with all the group API/event changes, but no clue how you guys feel about other people checking in changes. I assume more updates are needed, but I mainly use the mod for watching interrupts and checking on food/flasks.

    for some reason this addon doesn't like Minimap Button Bag. the button goes away before i can click anything in it. Therefore, I can't announce to raid what flasks/buffs etc, are missing. Everything else with mbb works ok, not sure what the issue is.

    Just a heads up ;)

    @Valdesca: Go In all cases translators should try to follow the translations in the base game, so for taunt: and based on wowhead it appears buff should be Mejora
