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.

    This addon does work for Frost DKs.  The easiest way to install it is with the Curse Client, since it will come with everything you need.  Otherwise you must also get SpellFlash and Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

    Hi Thanks for the help, have downloaded these addons, but I get error message see screenshot

    Looks like either SpellFlash, SpellFlashCore, or Bitten's SpellFlash Library is disabled.  Click AddOns from your character selection screen & make sure they all have check marks next to them.

    First of all id like to thank you for your great work on these addons. My dps has risen a lot since i started using them.

    Now i have a question. For DK's it seems that the horn of winter keep flashing even when it's already been cast. Any reason for this?

  • #107

    Thanks!  Horn of Winter is used for the 10 runic power it grants.

    By the way, are you going to add a 2h rotation for Frost?  I know the 2h rotation is fairly easy, but I would use it just to maintain my diseases.  I can't use the current Frost rotation as it's made for DW and flashes Frost Strike to us the KM procs...

  • #104

    Yes, I would like to add a rotation for 2H Frost.  See the FAQ for more info as I update more rotations.

    <Edit:> Done.

    Will you be adding anything for Soul Reaper in your next update? Like to check target health percentage and then reccommend Soul Reaper if it's at 35% or less and a frost rune is available? Or is there a simple line of code we can add to the lua?

    Yes, I would like to add that.  I would like to add all the over-level-85 abilities to all my modules.  The good news for you is, my main is my DK it will likely happen sooner than other classes.

    <Edit:> Done.

    So I was testing my rotation on Ultrax LFR and it seems I do better dps using a modified version of the pre-patch rotation, which was, in short, priorotizing Obliterate over Howling Blast but using all KM procs for Frost Strike being DW.  This performed better than the suggested priorities flashed by this SpellFlash module for DK's, which seems to be the Masterfrost priority.  What I would like to see in this module is the option to create custom rotations and flashes.  This is an amazing addon for people like me, who constantly forget to reapply Plague Strike or don't see that I'm RP capped.

    Thank you for the constructive comment.  The rotation currently is very close to what EJ recommends for dual-wielding frost dks.  Yes, it is similar to masterfrost.  They say an OB rotation is better for a frost DK wielding a 2 handed weapon.

    When I have a chance to revisit this I will definitely look into simming out what you say.  Perhaps the EJ information is not accurate until level 90.

    I figured it out!  It was because when I created the macro, I was choosing the actual Scourge Strike icon instead of leaving it blank and letting the #showtooltip choose the icon itself.  It looks like if you choose any icon rather than the ? it will not flash. 

    Fantastic!  Thank you very much for this information.  I will add it to the FAQ now.
