Ultimate Buff Bars


Ultimate Buff Bars is inspired and a rework of many previous buff bar addons. Much thanks to all the authors of adBuffBars, StatusBars, and BuffFrames for insights and code snippets. I ask an authors that want to help with this addon to message me to make this the end all be all of buff bars.

Currently looking for help making a clean and easy to use config window.

    in the alpha there is no config option yet,m you will have to manually edit then variable table with a editor addon inside the game. I only released this alpha due to demand by some forum users that wanted to try it out already knowing this
