    Default [Addon] RemoveBuff

    Hello all,
    As you may know there is a ingame command called cancelbuff, most people have this command in their macros but when they spam this macros they always keep getting "Could not cancel unknown ability: bla bla" messages on screen.
    I made a new ingame command thanks to addon api which is able to remove buff on player with name of buff or type of buff.

    Here is example:
    Code:
    /removebuff track ore
    Which is removing Track Ore buff from player or player could use

    Code:
    /removebufftype B595DA7DBAFC25D52
    Which is also removing track ore buff on player.

    Why make such addon?

    Most people gets annoyed by spam message on screen coming to them when they spam their macros or even better with bufftype shared on some abilities or on different language setting you play still be able to cancel that buff on you.

    Okay sounds good but how can I find bufftype without using any other tool?

    Here is macro to log your targets active buffs, so target yourself and execute it
    Code:
    log
    script local target=Inspect.Unit.Lookup("player.target") local ins for buffid,v in pairs(Inspect.Buff.List(target)) do ins=Inspect.Buff.Detail(target, buffid) if ins.type then dump(ins) end end
    log
    It will dump all your buffinfo to your noncombat log.

    As long as you have the addon you can put given examples in your macros instead of cancelbuff to do exact same work without getting annoyed

    Have fun and have a nice day

    It should work, I know few people using, can you give me spells name? You can also try second way to do it like using id of spell which you can see on first post.

    its been the paragon buff "turn the blade"

    ive tried it in german, and the spam got through
    i set my client on english and threw my macros through the macro translator to test english and then turn the blade got canceled whenever its been active and if it wasnt there was no spam

    soooo yeah, ur addon works also for this spell.... but not in german

    Addon matches name of spell listed on buffs you have which it gained via addon api itself. So try to use first macro I gave for getting filtered ability name and buff ids, that way you can use
    /removebufftype B595DA7DBAFC25D52
    kind of command which will remove the buff no matter which client language you will use.
