Yata - Yet Another Totem Addon

Yata is the answer to all your totem (and weapon imbue) needs

What is Yata?

Yata is a hugely flexible totem bar addon, enabling your shaman to organise their totems, cast them (individually, through the multicast spells or by /castsequence macro) and track cooldowns and timers.

Yata was originally created by Tornhoof and was one of the pioneers of totem bar support during The Burning Crusade. It has been brought up to date in Wrath of the Lich King by kaytikat.



  • Horizontal or vertical layout (with the ability to choose which side the pop-outs go)
  • Customisable order or groups and individual totems
  • Ability to hide useless or unused totems
  • Fully skinnable with ButtonFacade
  • Scale and position configurable
  • User-configured number of rows permanently visible
  • Button indicators showing which spells belong to which multicast spell
  • Short tooltip support
  • Key bind a spell group (e.g. a single key that will cast whichever fire totem is currently selected)

Spell Management

  • Key modifier to reorder totems (default: ctrl left click)
  • Key modifier to drop a totem without reordering (default: shift left click)
  • Key modifier to set/clear a totem as part of a multicast spell group (default: alt left click)
  • Cooldowns and timers shown on the button or on separate bars
  • Destroy Totem or Totemic Call (right click and shift right click, respectively)

How to get started

Open the Blizzard interface frame and choose yata or type /yata in the chat window

Type /kb to keybind abilities


Yata needs translating!

    You want a specific button for Totemic Recall even though you can cast it by shift+rightclick on a totem or rightclick on the Call buttons?

    Only issue with this is no Totemic Recall button.

    Nice work on this so far.

    r116's packaging of LibBars-1.0 is atypical for libraries, though (other than various cases of CallbackHandler, LibStub & LibDataBroker). LibBars-1.0.lua is packaged directly in the \Libs\ directory in r116.

    Normal packaging method in all other mods I've ever seen: \Libs\LibBars-1.0\LibBars-1.0.lua.

    Alphas for Cataclysm/4.0.1 are now being packaged

    Yata 3.1 is now promoted to release and work has begun on Yata 4 - a rewrite for Cataclysm.

    3.1 Beta 3 is ready for testing.

    This beta contains the following changes:

    • Right Clicking on a Call spell can now be used to recall all totems (shift right click on a totem also performs this)
    • There is a new option "Auto swap to call". When this is enabled casting a Call spell will cause the totems in that spell to move to the front
    • There is a new option "Manual swap to call key". Right clicking on a Call spell with this modifier held down will bring the totems in that Call to the front, without casting the Call.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    3.1b2 should fix all of your issues.

    RC5 (& other revs up to the current v3.1b1) is far from "bugfree". Check out my ticket 25.

    This needs some work to become usable. r76 is the last version that produces no bugs (in limited testing).

    As RC5 seems to be bugfree I've marked it as release 3.0.
