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.

Version 50400.4.0

  • Frost: Added an option to switch to a Mastersimple rotation. See the website for (a few) more details.

Version 50400.3.2

  • Blood: Adjusted some flashing for Rune Strike when you take Runic Corruption, to waste less Runic Power in certain situations.

    Are you saying there is this certain situation when Frost Strike does not flash, or that it never flashes (not even in that situation)?  If never, have you looked at "Why isn't spell X flashing?" in the FAQ?

    Sleep deprivation and WoW?  Never!

    An annoying observation: Strangulate spell NOT flashing when you are able to interrupt the cast of your target. Doesn't matters if Mind Freeze is on cd or not. Simply not flashes. I do recognize that Mind Freeze is much more profitable for interruption as it uses no resources and not affected by global cooldown (it flashes properly always), However absence of flashing on Strangulate when Mind Freeze is on cd seems to be VERY incorrect. I dont know how Asphyxiate behaves (never took that talent, as Chillblains and Death's Advance give much more profit everywhere but arena 2x2 fights).

  • #170

    Thank you for this input.  I will look at adding Stragulate/Asphixiate in the next version.

    Can you guys update the addon so it recognizes the Tier 15 4-Set bonus for Soulreaper .... I have gotten used to relying on this for Soulreaper and I end up not using it till < 35%

  • #167

    Absolutely.  Thanks for the heads up on that - I hadn't even looked at the T15 for DKs yet.

    after the default blizzard ui procs the spell flashing stops on all abilities after the newest update.

  • #163

    Same thing is happening with me.

  • #165

    Mine working now after update. Thanks.

  • #164

    Please try version 3.5.2, updated just a few minutes ago.

    Not sure if this has been a problem presented before, but I downloaded Bitten's SpellFlash: DK via the Curse Client, yet when I go to check the addons on the character selection screen it states that this addon is still missing the library. I know you've stated above that I don't need to download the library separately since the client downloads everything I need, but I'm a bit lost on this one. I continue to get the default Blizzard spell flashes, but not the ones from the addon.

  • #160

    Same thing happened to me. Re-installed the add-ons as well and still no luck. 

  • #161

    After you press the AddOns button on the character selection screen, do you see "Bitten's SpellFlash: DK", "Bitten's SpellFlash Library", and "SpellFlash" (the last one will be at the bottom of the list)?

    Author of Bitten's SpellFlash.

  • #158

    One or two other people have said something like that.  I will try to look into it.  For now, simply install Bitten's SpellFlash Library and SpellFlash, and you should be all set.
