About KuiNameplates

Prettier, pixel-perfect nameplates with auras.
Configurable through interface options (/knp or /kuinameplates).

Known issues, among other things, are tracked here.
If you're so inclined, please submit any bugs you find or ideas for enhancements to github.

I try to answer all the questions I can, so feel free to ask in the comments below.

You can use KuiSpellListConfig to customise the whitelist used by the Auras module.


Only the nameplate of my target shows up!
That's because of Blizzard's new option under Esc > Interface > Names > "Always show nameplates".

Some nameplates still aren't showing up!
They're probably disabled. Blizzard, for some reason, decided to remove the checkboxes for this, so try using the keybinds: V, Ctrl+V and Shift+V by default. These are provided by the default UI.

Kui_Nameplates_Extras, _Auras and other old external modifications will need to be disabled!
Otherwise they'll give you lots of errors. _Auras is now included in the base addon. I'm working on updating _Extras.

What's this ugly bar in the middle of my screen? Ew!
It's Blizzard's new option to show a personal nameplate. Here's how to disable it.

How can I stop nameplates from clamping to the screen?
Use Ketho's NameplateRange (or the script provided on that page).


Legion introduced huge changes for nameplates and nameplate addons. As such, I took the opportunity to focus on my rewrite which I'd been doing on the side for a while. This means a few things for you.

  • Configuration, including profiles, has been reset as I no longer use Ace3 to provide it.
  • Some options have been removed, changed, or aren't currently available (I still have more work to do).
  • External addons which modify KuiNameplates will need to be rewritten.
  • Neither KuiNameplates-Custom or KuiNameplates-Extras have been updated yet, but they will be.
  • Changing options and profiles doesn't require a UI reload anymore.

Notable features
