LifeBinder - Healing one click at a time!

What is LifeBinder?

LifeBinder is a raid frame substitute focusing on healing needs. It offers a wide variety of customization in terms of how you want your frames to look. You choose what you see and how you respond to the condition. This add-on prides on giving you the best setup for your individual needs. Please however understand that the current Rift API is limited and thus preventing us succeeding our true goals.

Nonetheless, the add-on makes it easier to monitor incoming damage, damage over time, healing, healing over time, buffs and debuffs. So that you can accurately and efficiently heal no matter how much is going on in raid. No longer do you have to look at Rift's messy default raid frames and wonder if your stacks are falling off or if the tank just used a cooldown.


  • Edited function for lb.buffMonitor.onBuffRemove() - buffmonitor.lua, now updates only the changed slots on buff remove event, reducing CPU usage from 45% to 8% max with 20 debuffs changing almost at the same time (found out tonight while playing a purifier cleric). Achelius 20/03/12

Known Issues

  • Only in group mode and during combat if a player disconnects, the game sort the players in the group moving the disconnected player last, but I cannot reassign the frames mouseover unit id during combat so it bugs out, I'm trying to fix it but i don't want to complicate things too much or they will easily break.
  • LoS indicator doesn't work like it's intended but is fixed in the upcoming version 0.25.
  • In a 20 man raid. When you apply a great number of buffs at the same time it slow down the game considerably (like when you are spamming healing flood in combat on a 20 man raid), Rift has an incredible amount of buffs on every character at the sametime.

Future Implementations

  • Read for now work in progress.
