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!

    Thanks, RC5 fixes that problem

    v3.0-RC4: you have it calling AddonLoader in the TOC, but you have no conditional for it.

    I have yet to test (don't have time) X-LoadOn-Always: delayed or X-LoadOn-Class: Shaman or similar, but it should have a conditional attached.

    Hmm this looks very sexy

    Look at that subtle off-white coloring... The tasteful thickness of it... Oh my God, it even has a watermark... ferous.wowinterface.com

    Development of Yata is GO again!

    I've uploaded r76 as an Alpha.

    Changelog so far:

    Adds basic support for setting which totems are used by your Call of the Elements spell (these totems are highlighted with a purple border and can be set/unset by alt-left-clicking on them out of combat) Adds destroy single totem support by right clicking on a totem school (shift-right-click is now Totemic Call) Fixed problems with spec-specific totems staying on your bars after a respec Fixed a problem with the skin not being remembered on login and spec change Fixed the totem layout dialog to work with the latest Ace3 libs Various other bug fixes

    Expect a better interface and more Call of XXXX support soonish

    Is there any chance for Yata to be updated ? I am still using it because all other totem bar mods suck.. too many useless buttons, and lack of configuration. I am not asking for an upgrade on setting etc.. just make it up to date :D

    @chammer101: The default UI totem bar is FAR from Yata...

    I sure hope they do add the new stuff to this one - while the blizzard one is nearly a copy of Yata, it's not nearly as good in my opinion. I'll stick with Yata and add some keybindings to the different set's for now :)

    Hey with patch 3.2 basically doing exactly what Yata does, do you plan on continuing the dev? If you do I assume you will include the functionality of the new totem system into Yata?
