Removes a specific buff from the unit.
CancelUnitBuff(unit, buffIndex or "spell" [,"filter" or "rank"]);
- The unitID of the unit. In the case of this function, the unit must be "player" (or, possibly, "pet", I have not confirmed) since you cannot cancel other player's buffs.
- buffIndex or "spell"
- buffIndex starts at 1 ends at 40 or "spell" is the name of the spell.
- "filter" or "rank"
- "filter" is any of "HELPFUL|HARMFUL|PLAYER|RAID|CANCELABLE|NOT_CANCELABLE" or "rank" is "Rank 1, 2, etc"
- Not sure exactly what the point of the "filter" option is since you can't cancel a buff that is "HARMFUL" or "NOT_CANCELABLE".
Cancels the buff at index 1 assuming it can be canceled by the player.
