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.

    For me, it will flash Howling Blast until 2 Unholy runes are available, then switch to Obliterate, as intended.  Were you watching the state of your runes?

    yes all my runes were up the whole time and obliterate was lit up to show i had the runes to cast it.

    Really nice work! Keep it up!

  • #129

    I really like your spellflash mods they are very helpful. Is there a Pack of all you SF mode we can down load all at once?

  • #131

    I'm glad you like them!  There is not a pack like that.  The easiest way I know of is to use the Curse Client, go to the "Get More Addons" tab, type "Bitten" into the search box, and start clicking the "INSTALL" buttons.  That should be pretty painless.  Wink

    Is flash for Plague Leech not included in Blood spec?

  • #128

    It is not, but that would be a good idea.  Use it simply when Outbreak is off cooldown, yes?  (And it will actually work, of course.)

    Well, that would be true unless you got it glyphed (No CD but 40 runic power on Outbreak)

    Good point.  I did not account for that w/ Frost & Unholy.

    As of the last update the button flash when something procs no longer works.

  • #126

    That is by design.  I finially figured out how to turn it off again (like it was in Cata).  See the last question of the FAQ.

    hello, is it me or the latest version of spellflash somehow deactivates the Blizzard default proc highlighting? Any way to bring it back? Thanks :)

  • #125

    It is not you.  I finially figured out how to turn it off again (like it was in Cata).  See the last question of the FAQ.

    hi, i have some problems with the frost 2h rotation (im using a 2h weapon), seems like the addon is using a DW rotation instead, ignoring Obliterates on KM Procs and using Frost strikes. it was working fine 3 days ago.

    I just tried it and it's still working correctly for me.  Perhaps what you are observing is because I was finally able to turn off the Blizzard default proc highlighting.  I believe Blizzard puts the shiny border around Obliterate when KM procs regardless of whether you have enough runes to cast it.  My module, however, will not flash it in that case (because if you can't cast it, it's obviously not the button you should push).

    When both Obliterate AND Frost Strike are castable, and you have a KM proc, which one does it flash?

    Seems like keeps using frost strike when RP is higher than 60. Correct me if im wrong , isn't a dps loss not using OB even with full RP and 2 or 3 seconds on runes CD?

    Ah yes - it is also true that it will flash FS instead if using OB would cap your RP.  So, that should be when your RP is higher than 76.  I just peeked into the code and fixed an error where it would switch at 76, instead of *highter than* 76 (thanks to your screenshots for that).

    I just re-simmed using OB under KM even with high RP, and it came out with *very* slightly less dps.  Close enough that it could possibly be due to randomness, but probably not.  Out of curiousity I started playing around with ideas like "use OB unless more than 1/2 of the RP would be wasted", which is showing some promise.  Perhaps a future version will incorporate an idea like that.

    If by the part about "2 or 3 seconds" you mean to suggest waiting for runes to regen so you can use KM on OB instead of FS, that's harder to put into a Simulationcraft script, so I don't know for sure.  The main threads in Icy Veins and Elitist Jerks do not mention it, and another thread on EJ has people arguing over it, so I'm sticking with the popular recommendation for now.
