Tooltip 4

Inspired by the now discontinued add-on BuffEnough, Energized answers the simple question: "Am I buffed?" Energized functions as a LibDataBroker (LDB) feed whose icon changes depending on your disposition. The tooltip lists which buffs you're missing, along with who is likely to be responsible for the buff. Energized is optimized for max-level players, and primarily focuses on PvE (but also supports PvP content).


  • Smart buff grouping. Energized uses a very flexible grouping system that lets it handle all equivalent buffs and consumables in the game, with room to grow as more become consolidated.
  • Low resource usage. Energized has been written for efficiency. It uses very little CPU time (particularly during combat) and very little memory. The configuration UI can be loaded separately for even more savings.
  • Highly configurable. Every single buff and consumable rule in Energized is exposed to the user through an advanced configuration system. This gives you a visual display of exactly what is being checked, and lets you configure absolutely everything.
  • Advanced tooltip. Energized uses a two-level tooltip, letting you mouse over any missing buffs to see all the people who could be providing them, and which buffs or consumables make up that buff group.
  • Understands your needs. Out of the box, Energized contains smart defaults for your class (and in many cases, your spec). Like to change specs a lot? Energized knows when it happens and automatically adjusts.
  • Quick disable. Don't care about a buff at the moment? Click it on the tooltip to disable it for this session. Joining a new group, reloading your UI, or logging out will enable it again.

You should also install

  • Energized works best with an LDB display like Fortress, Button Bin, or Titan Panel. If you don't have a display, turn on Energized's minimap icon. There are lots of displays available — if you don't like one, try another!
  • AddonLoader is highly recommended. This will let you keep the configuration UI unloaded until you need it.

Frequently asked questions

Does Energized require any configuration to work?

Nope! Energized is intended to work perfectly for the majority of players without any changes to configuration. Should you wish to dig deep, however, you can change literally anything about how Energized operates, including every buff and consumable it looks for.

Why is Energized slow to react when things change?

Energized has been written for maximum efficiency when it comes to CPU usage. It won't scan anything more frequently than once every few seconds (configurable). Certain types of actions (like changing your pet's attack mode) won't be picked up until Energized does it's automatic scan, which occurs every 10 seconds. In general, it'll just be a moment before Energized catches up. Just be patient — your framerate is better because of it!

Energized doesn't work very well for leveling. Why?

Energized is not intended to be used by leveling players.

How can I use different options for different specs?

In your Interface Options menu, click the + next to Energized, then select Profiles. Use this screen to create two profiles — one for each spec. Put yourself in the profile you want for your current spec. Then turn on Enable dual profile and select a profile to switch to when you change to your other spec.

    Whoa, nice! I'll have a look at this and hopefully get it into Energized. I'm hoping there weren't too many significant API changes that affect it.

    Sadly there doesn't seem to be an addon that simply checks yourself. Usually it's coming down to addons that check the whole raid. The thing I loved about Energized was the simplicity in using it. Just move the mouse over the broker-addon-text and *wham* you are missing this...that...etc...

    Anyway...thx for the years of raidsupport with this beautiful tool. :)

    Hey folks! Since I no longer raid, I am most likely abandoning this add-on in Warlords of Draenor. Barely anybody uses this, and it's very difficult to update with each expansion, especially when I can't raid test it. If anybody wants to help compile a list of what needs to change, I may be able to keep it going.

    FYI: I fixed the german localization for "(%d |4minute:minutes; ago)".

    Thanks for another great addon :)

    I just raided tonight and didn't notice any problems with Energized. Tagging this build as release.

    If you only had one paladin, this is intended. Energized expects Kings if there is one paladin. You can modify this yourself by finding Blessing of Might in the Advanced tab and changing it's Priority to 1. And then find Blessing of Kings and set it to Priority 2.

    If you had 2 paladins, and both the Kings and Might buffs, and Energized still said you weren't energized, then there is a bug.

    Today in raid, while I had Mastery buff from Pala, Energized wanted me to have it from Shaman instead, and kept naggin' about it! ;-)
