About Bitten's SpellFlash: DK

This module flashes suggested spells for all three DK specs. You can find *lots* more information on its website.

If you download using the Curse Client it will come with everything you need. If you download your addons manually, you must also get SpellFlash.

Please see the FAQ before posting a question. If that doesn't address your issue, or you have a suggestion to improve this addon, please either leave a comment or create a ticket.

Bitten's SpellFlash modules replace Blizzard's default proc highlighting to flash the button you should press next to achieve maximum dps on a boss fight. Or if you are a tank, to maximize your survivability. For healers, they are just slightly smarter proc highlighters. Dps modules follow or are similar to priority schemes found in SimulationCraft and/or Icy Veins. Sometimes you have to be smarter than SpellFlash, e.g. when saving a cooldown for a specific boss mechanic, but in general following the recommendations will improve most people's performance.

Some modules have AoE modes. Check the descriptions of each rotation to see if one is available for the spec(s) you use.

    I'm not sure there's a way to insert your own stuff into the floating combat text.  I've never looked into it.  My code adds a key binding toggle some of the floating combat text on/off (see your key bindings to assign it).  I use it while debugging.

    What do you mean by a power-aura-like feature?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Basically, I do think having a way to see which spell to trigger in the middle of the screen would be convenient: looking at your bars is not always the best thing to do if they are located at the bottom of the screen.

    I know there are combat rotation addons that do that for at least some classes.  I can't say how good any of them are - I never tried them.  I don't think SpellFlash will ever get that option (that would be a question for BigRedBrent - but I'm pretty sure he's said that he's not going to make that).

    On a related note - I use Bartender to move my action bars up closer to the center of my screen, and I love it.  Other action bar addons can do that, too.  It is by far my most preferred method, which is why I write addons for SpellFlash instead of one of those other addons.

    Combat text would be a way to avoid this. Showing the spell (non clickable, with transparency) on top of your character would be another one. Power aura allows you to show the spell at the right location; however, rules may be too difficult to achieve exactly what you did with spellflash.

    Thanks, Yaan

    I added a question to the FAQ about this.

    You gotta update this one and the bitten's spellflash: library. Im waiting :D

    This is a great addon, i love it!

    Cheers, Zazzori.

    Until I do, all my modules should be working fine if you check to "load out of date addons" (from the AddOns button on the character selection screen).  Please let me know if any of them give you problems after doing that.

    Currently, Plague Leech is lighting up (in Unholy spec) when there are no fully depleted runes, forcing the player to cast Outbreak to continue the rotation as Plague Leech cannot be cast when it cannot activate a rune.

    Also, I do not mean to nitpick the addon - it is an amazing tool that is helping me learn the Unholy rotation and rune/runic power management and is a well-presented and useful addon.

  • #144

    Please nitpick!  If nobody reports these issue you have to wait for me to find them myself ... which will be a long wait for specs I don't play.  Tongue out  So thank you for the report, and I will look into it.

    <Edit:> This should be fixed now.

    Soul Reaper is currently not on the priority list for Unholy.,, and the Elitist Jerks forums confirm that it should be. Are there plans in the works to add it to the flash rotation?

  • #142

    There are now!

    <Edit:> It is now included.

    Awesome! What a quick fix! This also goes for Plague Leech. :)

  • #139

    Hey, I love your addon it would be perfect except it doesn't show my Rime procs, nor does it show my killing machine procs for Obliterate. I tested it, and read the FAQs but it's not me. I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem and I'm not sure how to fix it. Help would be appreciated. Laughing
