Old Content mods are split into multiple packages

Older content is split into multiple addons to reduce mod update size. These are often far less updated as DBM Core packages and are better as optional extra packages. You can get them here:

Additional Mods

Countdown Packs

Voice Packs

Getting too many updates of DBM per day?

We push multiple alpha versions to Curse on an average day, these versions may contain important new features or bug fixes for the bleeding edge raid content... These versions are tagged as alpha, so they will not be downloaded by default. Set your Curse client to update to alpha if you want these latest versions (but they may contain bugs, downloads tagged as "Beta" or "Release" are more stable)

Disable alpha versions in your Curse client if you do not want multiple updates per day. Make sure you check main download preference as well as DBM's individual download preference. You could have primary method set to release and dbm still set to alpha. Right click on DBM itself in curse client addon list and set it to release/beta to avoid the daily updates.


  • Boss mods for all raid bosses
  • Colored raid warnings (players will be colored according to their class) with icons - so you will know what's going on without even reading the message
  • Auto-respond during boss fights. DBM will inform anyone who whispers you during a boss fight that you are busy. These messages contain the name and health of the boss as well as the raid's status. This feature is completely optional and can be disabled by player or even raid leader for the entire group.
  • HealthFrame: you can enable a simple frame that shows a health bar for all active bosses. This is enabled by default for multi-mob bosses like Four Horsemen
  • Bars can be enlarged with decent effects when they are about to expire
  • Crash recovery: you had a disconnect or crash during a boss fight? No problem for DBM! It will request the timer and combat status information from other DBM users in your raid group and you get your timers back
  • Synchronization system for accurate timers
  • Modular design - all boss mods are plugins and can be exchanged, removed or updated separately
  • Load on demand - all boss mods are separate AddOns and they will be loaded when they are needed. So they don't use memory or cpu until you enter the corresponding instance
  • Special effects like the screen flash effect, huge warning messages and sounds will draw your attention to critical events
  • Bars can change their color over time and flash before they expire
  • There are many bar designs to choose from, all designs are are customizable: you can change the color, size, icon position etc.
  • Support for SharedMedia, so you can use any texture for your bars
  • Option to create custom timers, so-called "Pizza Timers" for your pizza or whatever you prefer to eat while raiding. You can also send those timers to your raid group
  • HudMap built in to achieve greater visuals with heads up display in many different and creative ways
  • Support for voice packs in many different supported languages.

Slash Commands

  • /dbm - shows/hides the GUI

New Features


  • Added trash warning for Chosen Fate

Bug Fixes:


  • Guldan Mythic should now report boss health % for wipes on "The Demon Within" phase
  • First winds timer should now be correct on mythic guldan instead of basically being a pre warning for 2nd one by mistake
  • Timers for FelLord Kuraz & Dzorykx should now cancel if you phase guldan on mythic before they spawns (Kuraz skipable now, Dzorykx is just future planning for solo raids).

5 man Dungeons

  • Venom GTFO on spider boss in arcway now says venom not blink strike

Broken Isles

  • Withered Jim should now report boss health in status messages and no longer report kills as wipes
  • Lowed CD for fear on Shartos. It may be a scaling timer based on group size. If so timer may still not be very accurate.



  • DBM will no longer display Bigwigs/DBM icon conflict message on raid join if you run both mods and are NOT promoted to assistant. However if you do have assist it'll now display conflict message EVERY boss pull to make sure you see it/resolve it. Having icons turned on in both mods when you actually do have assist creates issues and DBM will repeatedly warn you every pull until you disable icons in EITHER mod (yes DBM detects BW icon setting as well, you can turn off icons in DBM OR BW and DBM will detect it and stop showing message). TLDR, let ONLY Bigwigs or ONLY DBM set raid marks, not both or you'll get reminded until you fix it.


  • Some countdowns on Star Auger now start countdown sooner.
  • Changed elisande bubble timers to accommodate May 2/3 changes to how long they last.
  • Changed bonds of fel timer and countdown on Guldan to be for cast START for tanks (while remaining cast FINISH for everyone else still) since tanks care about this at a different timer from everyone else.

Broken Isles:

  • Changed submerge to a target scan/personal warning on Si'vash
