UnitAura arguments Edit

Nexiuz Asks:

It seems that this function doesn't have the rank anymore. Or at least the first 3 arguments are now Unit, Index, Filter (3th is filter, not the 4th). Can someone check this also and maybe check if the 4th argument is rank.

The reference is a little confusing, but UnitAura works in two ways:

  1. "unit", index, "filter"
  2. "unit", "name", "rank", "filter"


  • /script print(UnitAura("player", 1, "HELPFUL"))
  • /script print(UnitAura("player", "Lightning Shield", nil, "HELPFUL"))
  • /script print(UnitAura("player", "Lightning Shield", "Rank 2", "HELPFUL"))

I just verified that all three of those work (wow I have seen a couple addons try to hook UnitAura and only support the first form, which ended up breaking my addon.
