IMPORTANT NOTICE - WICHTIGER HINWEIS
Since the August 2010 patch to version 3.03 there are huge problems with certain addons. When you are using an older addon that has not been updated since that patch, you may encounter problems with every addon you have installed! But there is a solution. Install one of the following addons (not both). They provide a workaround for all addons.
Seit Frogsters letztem Patch auf Version 3.03 sind schwerwiegende Probleme mit vielen Addons aufgetreten. Ich habe diese in meinen Addons bereits gelöst, aber falls du noch Ältere benutzt, die diesen Bug nicht behoben haben, können Probleme mit all deinen installierten Addons auftreten, auch mit Lootomatic! Dafür gibt es jedoch eine Lösung. Installiere eines der folgenden Addons, diese bieten eine Hintertür, um auch ältere Addons wieder zum Laufen zu bringen.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - WICHTIGER HINWEIS
When you get a critical error, all the settings of ntBuff will be lost. You may want to back up SaveVariables.lua so that you can restore those settings. If you update the addon or client, please type /ntb to check whether your settings are okay.

ntBuff is an updated version of the older addon nBuff created by Noktrin, and nuBuff by Roukard. ntBuff is an addon that automatically checks your buffs, health and mana. The player's action such as mouse movement or key stroke triggers the addon to cast buffs, cast heals, use potions or even start macros, according to your configuration and your current status. The addon will keep track if you are in combat, casting, mounted, or in your house. You can fully configure up to 17 hp potions and 29 mana potions, as well as 12 self-buffs to keep up, when to cast your healing spells, when to use an hp potion, and when to use a mana potion. ntBuff is fully compatible with the latest clients. Auto-buff mode can be automatically inactivated while in party. ntBuff supports AddonManager, and can support multiple languages. Currently, it supports EN, JP, DE, ES, TW and RU. Collaborators for translating into other languages are welcome.
What's new in ver 1.30
The patch 3.0.0 disabled timer-based triggering for auto-buff/pot/macro. This would be the dev's policy not to allow afk-automation. In this version, therefore, three categories of the player's action are used as the trigger: mouse movement, character movement and skill use. Please use the GUI window for its setting.
Simply moving mouse in the window can be used as the trigger. Click or holding down the mouse button already has functions, so only movement without mouse button manipulation is used as the trigger. The "sensitivity" number means the minimal distance to fire the trigger. If you make it too sensitive, your right clicking or the mouse dragging with the right button down could be ignored by the client. The response time of the addon language is not very high, so that too rapid mouse movement might not be recognized as the triggering cue.
Your character's movement or the stop of the movement, such as pushing down "W" key or releasing "W" key (default), is used as the trigger. Move forward/backward/right/left, turn right/left and jump are used as the trigger, as well as target nearest enemy/friend and sheath/show weapon. With this trigger, you might sometimes get an alert message when the addon tries to cast a buff when you start moving. In most cases, the same buff will be re-casted when you stop moving, but you can simply turn off this function from the GUI window.
You can trigger auto buff/pot before your skill usage. You can set up to 15 ( or simply all) action bar slots as the trigger. Every time you use that slot, ntBuff first checks buff/pot stats, and then uses the skill/item/macro registered in the slot. This option is most suitable to player classes that spam attack skills during the combat.
A small green/magenta indicator is added near the center of the mini button. Green means waiting for the trigger. Magenta means busy. Turning from green to magenta means a trigger was fired. You can thus use this monitor for the fine tuning of the triggering condition.
Please refer to the old description page for the features succeeded from the previous version.
