The bar

Upgrade Notice

Users upgrading from versions prior to 0.6.6 will lose any aura blacklist settings. A change was made to aura identification to resolve conflicts with skills such as Sacred Shield. Please re-blacklist any auras you aren't interested in after upgrading.


SexyCooldowns is a logarithmic cooldown bar. What's that, you say? Well, most timer bars you're used to are linear. That is, the distance between 0 seconds and 10 seconds is the same as the distance between 50 seconds and 60 seconds. A logarithmic cooldown bar is somewhat different - it represents cooldowns on a compressed timeline, so that cooldowns that are closer to being ready are represented as more active on the bar. This lets you represent a large amount of data on a single bar, and have it remain useful.

In short, SexyCooldown is a single consolidated timer bar for all your spell, pet's spell, item, and proc cooldowns, as well as buffs, debuffs, and totem timers. It's very flexible, and can be customized to fit into your UI as best you see fit.


  • Spawn as many bars as you want, and show the specific information you want on each.
  • Supports spell and talent cooldowns, explicit and internal item cooldowns, buffs on you, debuffs on you, and debuffs on your target or focus.
  • Very highly configurable look and feel. Build bars that will fit into any UI.
  • Bars may be oriented horizontally or vertically, and move in either direction.
  • Extensible - can support virtually any kind of timer. Currently works as a cooldown, buff, and debuff timer, but the possibilities are endless.


Here you can see that I have set up three separate bars, one for my cooldowns at the bottom, one for short buffs on me (<45 seconds) above my unit frame, and one for my debuffs on my target above the target unit frame.

    I've been trying to post comments to fix all the bugs I've found since 4.0.1

    So far I've gotten it working pretty well.

    Aura Frames provide the same functionality. The only thing that Aura Frames doesn't support is internal cooldowns (the ICD library is also outdated)

    Get the v1.1-x beta's for the timeline

    Has this project been abandoned? There hasn't been a release in a while and there are numerous tickets that haven't had their status changed. Or does this author just not use the tickets here?

    will you update it for 4.0? It's not possible to blacklist spells via rightclick anymore. and an option to whitelist spells would be great too!!

    Thx for a great addon, though when i cast my mirror image and summon water elemental on my mage the cooldown on when the spell is ready to cast again won't show on the bar. Is it possible to make this work?

    Great addon, thank you so far. Will there be an update for 4.x anytime soon? If not, what do I need to do to update the spell information?
