About Bitten's SpellFlash: Druid

This module flashes suggested spells for all four Druid 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 50400.2.5

  • The future of Bitten's SpellFlash: Druid is in question. I no longer wish to maintain this addon, starting with patch 6.0. If you are interested in taking it over, keeping up with optimal rotations, and you have programming skills, please leave a comment or PM on Curse.

Version 50400.2.4

  • Feral: Moved the beta rotation into production. The old rotation is gone.
  • Feral: There is an option to toggle swapping to bear form during down time.

Version 50400.2.3beta

  • Feral: Trying out shifting to Bear when there is time to spare.
  • Feral: Slight adjustment of Rip & Mangle damage calcs.
  • Feral: Hopefully a fix for a rare-ish Lua error.

Version 50400.2.2

  • Feral: Making the beta rotation available as on option in a general release, so more people are exposed to it for testing.
  • Feral: Beta - now considers the Nature's Vigil buff when calculating the damage of bleeds.
  • Feral: Beta - updated support for Nature's Vigil and Incarnation.
  • Feral: Beta - only suggests Healing Touch as a self heal when you would otherwise be pooling energy anyway.
  • Feral: Beta - adjusted the CP generators when the enemy is nearing death.

Version 50400.2.1beta

  • Feral: Bugfix - one of the Rip priorities was being quirky.
  • Feral: Bugfix - the Rake with Re-Origination priority was broken.

Version 50400.2.0beta

  • Feral: Entirely new single target rotation. It is not yet perfected, but seems to be a noticable improvement.
  • Feral: The beta rotation considers whether overwriting a bleed may increase its damage.
  • Feral: The beta rotation might play nice with Rune of Re-Origination ... untested.
  • Feral: The beta rotation might play nice with tier 15 & 16 set bonuses ... untested.
  • Feral: There is an option to revert to the old one, so feel free to update, test, and give feedback!

Version 50400.1.4

  • Guardian: Uses Healing Touch as a "mitigation" cooldown when Dream of Cenarius is up.
  • Guardian: Savage Defense and Frenzied Regeneration are now flashed to overlap freely, since rage generation supports it easily.
  • All: Flashes WoW's 9th Anniversary Celebration Package.

Version 50400.1.3

  • Restoration: Added flashing for the 2pT16 bonus. I think. I don't have the set, so I couldn't test it.

Version 50400.1.2

  • Bugfix update to Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

Version 50400.1.1

  • Update for the new version of Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

Version 50400.1.0

  • Balance: Added flashing for Astral Communion when you have Astral Insight (new for this patch).
  • Feral & Guardian: Removed Nature's Swiftness (since it's no longer available in this patch).
  • Guardian: Glyphed Frenzied Regen now takes 50 rage (was 60 before this patch).
  • Guardian: Anticipates rage according to the new behavior of Soul of the Forest.
  • Restoration: Updated the calculation for Innervate.
  • Restoration: You can only have 1 Wild Mushroom out now.
  • All: Exact calculations to determine whether you can use a Healing Touch without overhealing (unless it crits).

Version 3.3.3

  • Guardian: Now checks for the proc from Indomitable Primal Diamond before flashing your mitigation cooldowns.
  • Guardian: Now checks for a number of external mitigation cooldowns before flashing one of your own.

Version 3.3.2

  • Bugfix to Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

Version 3.3.1

  • Guardian: Changed the AoE flash color to improve visibility.
  • Guardian: Added another priority level for Thrash when in damage mode, to keep up the bleed at a higher priority.
  • Guardian: Do not flash Maul if a bleed is not detected on the target (though the detection is not perfect).
  • Guardian: Do not flash Rejuvenation in damage mode.

Version 3.3.0

  • Balance: Smoothed out some quirkiness in the flashing.
  • Balance: Better tracking of DoT tick times.
  • Balance: Don't refresh DoTs early when their Eclipse is not up (should be a dps gain).
  • Guardian: Don't flash Thrash at its higher priority for Weakened Blows when in damage mode.

Version 3.2.3

  • Guardian: Damage mode is now linked with the hidden option to toggle it in groups (see the website for more info).
  • Guardian: Berserk and Incarnation are now top priority cooldowns in damage mode.
  • Guardian: Might of Ursoc is now only used for its heal; other cooldowns may now flash while it is up.
  • Guardian: Frenzied Regeneration no longer flashes when its buff is already up (from the glyph).

Version 3.2.2

  • Feral: Improved the condition to switch back to Cat Form when Rip is expiring.
  • Restoration: Healing Touch and Regrowth now flash small when neither Harmony nor Clearcasting are up.

Version 3.2.1

  • Restoration: Added flashing for Wild Mushroom.
  • All except Guardian: Added flashing for Soothe.
  • All except Restoration: Forms now flash before entering combat, when you have an enemy targeted.
  • All: Added flashing for food buffs.
  • All: Bugfix - Force of Nature was not flashing when in a macro.

    I am getting this error in BGs when I open the map:

    Message: [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "BittensSpellFlash_Druid" tried to call the protected function "WorldMapBlobFrame:Show()".

    <The rest of the error snipped by Bitten to avoid clutter.>

    I just got on my Druid, entered a bg, and opened the map without any error.  I've been getting a few of these reports recently.  Please check out the section I just added to the FAQ to help narrow things down.

    Hey, I've downloaded this addon with the curse client and updated every time a new version comes out.  It's not working for me.  I've turned off every other addon in an attempt to rule out interference and it still doesn't work.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance. 

  • #39

    What spec do you play?

    I'm guardian...which I'm assuming you haven't updated yet :) sorry for the trouble and I'll keep watching the progress.

  • #35

    Looking forward to trying out this addon after Balance Druids are updated.  I'll be watching out.

     

    Thanks for the hard work on this...looks very promising.

    From the description above:

    No Balance rotation for 5.0.4 yet. Check the FAQ for my progress as I update Bitten's SpellFlash modules for 5.0.4.

    <Edit:> Balance now works.

    Bitten's Spellflash Druid is showing as "Dependency Out of Date" and Bitten's Spellflash Library as "Out of Date" and if I choose "Load Out of Date Add-ons" when I attack a mob I get a staggery kind of lag followed by a screen freeze that only a shut-down of my computer will fix.

  • #30

    Uncheck "Load out of Date Addons", then uncheck all of them that are red except mine, then re-select "Load Out of Date Addons".  Sounds to me like you have a buch of other addons that are causing all kinds of problems if you let them load.

    Just popping back to let you know that your instructions fixed it.  Thank you.

    your addon is now the only addon thats loaded out of date, and still it will not work.

    it still says dependancy out of date :( 

    If it says it's out of date, that sounds like you do not have a check mark next to "Load out of Date Addons".  That has to be selected (as the last step of my instructions above).  Remember to have SpellFlash, Bitten's SpellFlash Library, and Bitten's SpellFlash: Druid all selected.
