    Default 1 hour buffs and temporary buffs, placement in separate UI elements?

    So..is there a UI configuration that will allow me to show 1 hour buffs in one positional window element. AND temp buffs (like HOTS) in another window?

    Not really, unless you edit your layout.

    Better yet, would be to use addon Karuulalert. Once you set it up, you can edit the layout to your heart's content.

    Has the Karuulalert been updated yet?

    ...Updated for what? Nothing has changed that would break it.

    Well it does not work for me. I've had to disable it since 3.1 dropped. It will sometimes work, and other times not. No rhyme or reason to why it does this. I'll do a complete uninstall and reinstall a new copy to see if maybe mine got corrupted.

    Thanks for the info..

    I'd love to see this part of the UI updated. Preferably with options to separate Permanent (possibly hide these), Long Duration 30+ minutes, and short duration buffs that last less then 30 minutes.

    I agree that the buff display could need some love. The thing that annoys me the most ist that the option to show only your buffs on friendly targets also affects yourself, i.e. you don't know if you have received various vital raid buffs...

    To fix this, I currently use Gadgets:Buffs, I just set it to show buffs on myself that are not from myself. Works well, but of course looks different and uses additional ressources.
    It has several sorting options too, though it doesn't seem to have a filter for total buff duration, only for showing buffs that have less than <x> seconds remaining.

    Define exactly what you mean when you say that sometimes it doesn't work. Is it throwing up error messages? Or are alerts just not showing up? If it's the latter, can you give a specific example of an alert that doesn't work?

    rift's buff/debuff indication bars are a steaming pile of refuse.

    buffs changing places, not being sorted by type/time remaining are the major sore points.

    plus, the buffs in the stupid unit portrait are fk'd to hell. i have both options turned on : "hide my/enemy buffs and debuffs on frames", YET, when I pvp, I can see EVERY SINGLE of the enemy's buff... its IRRITATING, and due to it, I have to use kalerts (too bad kalerts doesnt support target of target :/ )

    its a crying shame that certain addons were made because just RIFT displays its buffs/debuffs in such a stupid way.

    I guess that the alerts sometimes do net get tracked after a death. That is normal and solved either by reloadui or if the player selects himself/herself before a pull as the target.

    Both of it resets kalert and the stuff gets tracked again.

    I agree, the buff UI could use some love'n up. If things were movable, self buffs and other buffs where in different windows, maybe the ability to make and move individual buff windowns .. yea, we wouldn't need addon's.
