AutoBuff [Emerald]  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 20100-3
by: DSanai [More]

AutoBuff casts self-buffs, weapon buffs, tracking abilites, aspects, and seals.

Originally authored by Frosty, adopted by Dsanai in August 2005.

Frosty is no longer playing World of Warcraft. He has allowed me to officially adopt AutoBuff. I intend to continue it while respecting his vision. Please direct any suggestions, comments, or blame, to Dsanai.

FEATURES =================================

-- The Burning Crusade compatible. Won't cast in combat. Uses secure template.
-- Casts buffs when you roll your scrollwheel forward or backward.
-- Casts buffs when you hit an [optional] keybinding.
-- Casts buffs when you click a secure UI button.
-- Casts buffs through a macroable slash command.
-- All triggers can be individually or globally configured.
-- All spells can be disabled or configured as desired.
-- You can set mana/health thresholds, and only trigger if the conditions are met.
-- You can set which rank of spell will be cast (or it will default to using the highest known rank).
-- You can set waterbreathing spells (Warlock and Shaman) to only cast after 30 seconds or more underwater, or cast any time your spell conditions are met.
-- Only cast in combat, out of combat, or always.
-- Cast before the buff has expired so you never lose the effect.
-- All options can be set as a default, or per spell.
-- Optional Titan Panel and FuBar 2+ support allows you to access the UI through a click of its icon, or access certain options through a right-click menu. Mousing over the icon will show you the status of several AutoBuff options.
-- Won't try and cast if you are mounted, or are polymorphed, or if certain spells (such as Mind Control) are active.
-- Won't try to cast while your loot window is showing (when hunting or looting your hook during fishing).
-- Won't try to cast while you are channeling a spell or ability, eating, drinking, or using a bandage.
-- Won't cast if an ability with the same effect is already active (Arcane Brilliance, Gift of the Wild, Prayer of Fortitude).
-- Druid will auto-use "Track Humanoids" if it's enabled, and you go into cat form.
-- For abilities that override each other, it won't override a manually-used buff (ie. Mage Armor and Ice Armor).
-- All options can be configured with a graphical interface.
-- All options are saved per-character.
-- Will not cast if you're a Priest or Warlock with active Spirit Tap (but will if you have full mana, to maximize its usefulness). This 'block' can be deactivated, if desired.
-- Translated and localized for English, German, French, and Korean clients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ) =========

Q: It won't cast in combat!

A: The Burning Crusade removed our ability to cast spells while in combat. It has also make it impossible to cast by moving or changing targets; only clicks (and mousewheel movement) are supported.

Q: It won't cast Waterbreathing spells!

A: You MUST be underwater for AT LEAST 30 seconds before it will cast it. If you want it to cast all the time, regardless of whether you're swimming or not, use the "/autobuff water" command, or change the WaterBreathing option on the Titan Menu.

Q: It won't cast my Aspects, Tracking spells, or Seals!

A: If you already have an Aspect or Tracking spell or Seal on you, it will NOT override it. It only casts these spells if you do not currently have one turned on. For hunters, this ensures that after death or a gryphon ride (if you had Cheetah on), your chosen default Aspect or Tracking spell will be recast. For a paladin, this allows you to manually cast any seal, and the AutoBuff default Seal will only be automatically cast once that one has expired (or been judged). In this manner, you can set one that you normally like to have on you, and STILL be able to manually choose one for a specific function or reason.

Q: Battle Shout won't cast!

A: Remember, rage is the same as mana (for the purposes of the AutoBuff options panel). The default mana casting level is set to > 40%. For a Warrior, this means that you'd have to have 40 rage before Battle Shout will cast! You need to set the Mana slider for Battle Shout to > 10% instead. This will allow it to cast when you have more than 10 rage (which is what the spell costs). It will then fire as soon as it possibly can.

Q: How do I get rid of the floating button, especially now that there's a Titan/FuBar one?

A: Type /autobuff hide, or use the right-click menu on the Titan icon (there's a "Show Button" option). Note that the new "Secure Casting" button does not hide via this command.

Q: Can you make it buff party/raid members?

A: Nope, sorry. Try SmartBuff for buffing others.

Q: Can you add MiniPetLeash?

A: No need. MiniPet: http://tinyurl.com/dd47g

Q: Can you make it change between Hawk, Monkey, and Cheetah aspects?

A: Try SmartAspect: http://tinyurl.com/cmjqc

Q: Why isn't it working with Fubar?

A: Do you have Fubar 2.0 or higher? If not, get it from here: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=4571

Q: How do I add new spells or translations?

A: You can add them yourself, but to help others out as well, I ask that you submit them to me. The best way to reach me is through e-mail at the address listed in the TOC file. I ask that you open that file in a Text editor and get it from there -- if I post it directly in this FAQ, it can be grabbed by spambots. Thanks!


v20100-3
-- PRIEST: Added Shadowform.
-- DRUID: Added Tree of Life, Flight, and Swift Flight forms (won't cast in the latter two).
-- WARRIOR: Added Commanding Shout.
-- HUNTER: Added Aspect of the Viper.
-- MAGE: Added Molten Armor.
-- SHAMAN: Added Earth Shield, and Water Shield.
-- PALADIN: Added Avenging Wrath, Seal of Blood, Seal of Vengeance, Crusader Aura, and Spiritual Attunement.
-- Should now block casting while on a flying mount as well as a ground mount.
-- Removed Korean translation as it hasn't been updated in so long, it will throw errors. If I'm sent one, I'll readd it.
-- NOTE: A few of the new spells don't have translations. If you are German or French, please submit translations.

v20100-2
-- Added FuBar module to ZIP file.

v20100-1
-- Updated for The Burning Crusade and Patch 2.1.
-- Added secure casting (with a new, square button that can be used to cast spells and dragged anywhere you like).
-- Updated to allow for scroll-wheel casting via the secure method (keybinding).
-- Updated the FuBar plugin to 2.0 standards and broke it out as a separate module.
-- NOTE: Spells can not be cast in combat, so ones such as Fade, Faint, and Berserking may not be desirable any longer. I have not identified and removed them yet. Disable them in the Options panel if you do not wish to cast them.
-- NOTE: The FuBar options have been removed pending a rewrite of that module.
-- NOTE: May contain bugs as it has not been extensively tested; let me know if you encounter any.

Has DSanai abandoned this? Any update planned for WotLK? Any chance of some sort of news about what's happening / planned for this mod? Possibly the best self-buff mod ever, but now Blizzard have totally broken it once again! Guess it's time to find a replacement.

Any love left for this awsome addon?

Has anyone thought to make this addon up to date for Wrath? It's been 10 months since the last forum post.

I used the addon right up to the patch, and I depended on it to self buff. I hope someone pickes up where the last programmer left off.

@Star: I'll fix that as soon as I can.

@Sy Ali: I'll add the button hide option. I haven't found a way around the offhand issue that was introduced a few patches ago, but will revisit it. And spells do have a separate timer; if you open the options panel and click on a spell, one of the options is the Recast -- don't set it in the global options, but rather, in the spell's individual options.

Feature requests

* Be able to hide the new "Secure Casting" button. I only use the scroll wheel.
* Support the shaman off-hand weapon buffs. Right now it only buffs the main hand weapon.
* Be able to have a separate recast timer for each item. I don't want to ever recast my water shield because it expiring is a good thing, but I want to recast weapon buffs well before they expire.

Minimap button

Whenever I change characters the minimap button comes back and I have to turn it off, then turn off the fubar button as it turns that on when I turn off the minimap one. Its annoying as I have no use for either of those as I just use the floating button. Just wondering if there's some way to fix this.

I LOVE you for continuing this addon.

Please try to remain true to the original idea. I was more disappointed when this addon was discontinued than any other.

You're my hero.

Molten Armor Update

Make the following changes to add support for Mage's Molten Armor. (Needs localizations other than English)


localization.en.lua Add:
Code:
AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MOLTEN_ARMOR = "Molten Armor";
AutoBuff.lua Find:
Code:
	[AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MAGE_ARMOR] =        { ["type"] = "self",
	[0] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_ICE_ARMOR) },
	[AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_ICE_ARMOR] =         { ["type"] = "self",
	[0] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MAGE_ARMOR) },
Replace with:
Code:
	[AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MOLTEN_ARMOR] =      { ["type"] = "self",
	[0] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MAGE_ARMOR),
	[1] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_ICE_ARMOR) },
	[AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MAGE_ARMOR] =        { ["type"] = "self",
	[0] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MOLTEN_ARMOR),
	[1] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_ICE_ARMOR) },
	[AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_ICE_ARMOR] =         { ["type"] = "self",
	[0] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MOLTEN_ARMOR),
	[1] = string.lower(AUTOBUFF_ABILITY_MAGE_ARMOR) },

Work begins again on AutoBuff...

I'm taking some vacation time from work, so am going to try and get AutoBuff fixed and released. There's quite a few patch changes (from multiple patches) that I need to deal with, but I'm hopeful I'll have time to address them all.

I'm sorry, everyone. I've been so busy with work and whatnot, I haven't had a chance to revisit this since WoW 2.0 came out. With SmartBuff basically performing the same function, I backburnered the need for AutoBuff's revitalization.

If someone feels they can look at what SmartBuff did to become functional again, and make modifications to AutoBuff, I would welcome the help and be happy to provide full credit to the author for that BC-compliant version. I would be happy to continue to maintain AutoBuff, I just haven't had a chance to sit down for more than an hour at a time to pore over the necessary modifications.

If you have code or fixes you would like to send me, I can be reached at gfdesignlv at gmail.com.

how is it going?

Just wondering what the status of the update was? You still working on it or did you
run into some kind of roadblock in the code? Just curious.

Glad to hear it man, just tried SmartBuff, while it does work and I do like the party & raid options, I prefer the simplicity of AutoBuff and I prefer to manually watch party/raid buffs anyway. But thanks for working on AutoBuff, and suggesting SmartBuff in the mean time.

YAY! Glad to hear it dude. I miss my mousewheel shields.
Does Smartbuff tie to the mousewheel in the same way? Never used it
so I don't know if it really achieves the same quick "shields up" effect.
