About WeakAuras 2

Build Status WeakAuras on Discord

WeakAuras is a powerful and flexible framework that allows you to display highly customizable graphics on your screen to indicate buffs, debuffs, and a whole host of similar types of information. It was originally meant to be a lightweight replacement for Power Auras, but it now incorporates many features that Power Auras does not, while still remaining more efficient and easy to use.

Features include:

  • An intuitive and powerful configuration interface
  • Custom textures including all textures from Power Auras and the new Cataclysm spell alerts
  • Progress bars and textures that show the exact duration of auras
  • Displays based on auras, health, power (mana, rage, soul shards, holy power, etc.), cooldowns, combat events, runes, totems, items, and many other triggers
  • Preset and user-defined animations
  • Custom side-effects such as chat announcements or sounds
  • Grouping, which allows multiple displays to be positioned and configured at the same time
  • CPU optimizations such as conditional loading/unloading of displays, modularity, and prevention of full aura scanning
  • Powerful customization options, such as animation paths, on-show/on-hide code, and custom triggers, for Lua-savvy users

To open the options window, type /wa or /weakauras into your chat and hit enter or use the LDB feed.

Extending WeakAuras 2

  • WeakAuras_StopMotion: This addon adds a new region type to WeakAuras that allows for stop motion animations. Stop Motion textures contain each frame of the animation as a separate image. The addon ships with a number of animations and it supports custom textures.
  • SharedMedia for more bar textures.
  • SharedMediaAdditionalFonts for more fonts.

For in-depth documentation, see the wiki page.
