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 split the icon disable options out into "disable tooltips" and "disable mouse". The former will just disable tooltips, while the latter disables all mouse interaction (including blacklisting).

    Enabling icon tooltips solved the problem - thanks a bunch.

    Careen - Vehicle cooldowns aren't supported yet, but will be coming. Pet and item cooldowns should already be supported.

    khariv - Make sure you didn't turn off icon tooltips. Doing so completely prevents mouse interaction with them. I'll see about making that a separate option.

    The right click to hide a cooldown thats on a bar does not seem to be working for me. Is there some sort of trick to doing this?

    I wonder, would it be possible to add options to show vehicle, pet and maybe item cooldowns to the bar?

    Is there any way to show or I should say divide the bar by seconds for the first 10 seconds ? something like :

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10s        20s        30s     1m  2m 3m

    sammael666, you can right-click any icon on a bar to blacklist it and prevent it from showing on that bar.

    this looks very nice definitely gonna try it out, using fortexorcist atm, but one thing i was missing is spawning more bars as it can get cluttered with all the info on one bar

    1 question, is there any way of ignoring particular spell/debuff/item/etc ?
