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!

    Hi, (sorry for my english :( )

    I'm trying r75 on french client too, all totems are present in the "totem bar" and as Erreka, cooldowns are still missing in the "Cooldown Timer" bar.

    I don't know if this can help, but this is the name in the french client for the three totems missing in the "Totem Uptime" bar:

    Totem élémentaire de feu (Fire Elemental Totem), Totem élémentaire de terre (Earth Elemental Totem), Totem Furie-des-vents (Windfury Totem)

    Thank you for your work

    Thak you for your help

    There must be an error in the french version of wow, some totems & timers are missing, please check this. =)

    OK....good news. I did what ReiTung mentioned. I will explain to make it idiot proof, since if I can do it anyone can...

    1. Download the latest YATA from http://www.wowace.com/projects/yata/ (i have r73). 2. Install as normal into the addon directory 3. Go to your wow directory labelled: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\XXXXXXX\SavedVariables (where XXXXXX is the name of your account) 4. Delete anything that has YATA in the name. 5. Start game and enjoy!

    OK...silly question...but where is this RESET button? I checked all four subcategories when I typed /yata and the GUI came up. Nothing that says reset anywhere.

    hi, just to let you know - the error I described below was right after login, so yata never started up at all - therefore also no reset button. thx to rowaweb who insisted on resetting ;) I did a manual reset of older yata configs/profiles by wiping all related files in the savedvariables folder. maybe that helps others as well if they are facing the same problem as I did.

    anyway, now it also works for me. thx reitung
