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 60000.2

Update to latest BSF library.

Version 60000.1.1

  • Fix combat log spamming (sorry)

Version 60000.1.0

  • New author: SlippyCheeze
  • UTF-8-unix everything.
  • Reindent to 3-space indentation for lua.
  • Bump TOC for 6.0 release, author, etc.
  • Kill dead spells, flush rotations, etc, for 6.0.
  • Added threatening warning about the rotations being, well, not done.

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.

  • 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.

  • All: Added flashing for food buffs.
  • All: Bugfix - Force of Nature was not flashing when in a macro.

    I'm having the same issue, in Feral.

    Hmm - works fine for me.  Are you sure everything is updated?  Are you in Feral or Guardian?

    Suggestion for resto healing: flash Lifebloom 3 times when not up; flash Nourish if target drops below 70%; flash Rejuvenation if drops below 50%; Regrowth if drops below 40%.

    (i don't know about Healing Touch yet; have not lvled my druid to 85 yet.)

    Edit: looked at healing touch, should be at about 60% (i guess)

    (also, it only requires 78, not 85 and thats my lvl, just hve not learned it yet :P

    I have tried schemes like these for healers, and I just cannot get happy with that sort of thing.  That's why all my healing modules have turned into little more than fancy proc hilighters.  There is a lot more decision making that goes into spell selection for healers than tanks or dps.  For example, on Ultraxion I rarely worried about keeping 3 stacks of Lifebloom on anybody because it was too hard to keep refreshed as people phased in & out.  On Madness I would delay Swiftmend if people were going to be running to a new spot soon (for maximum use of Effloresence).  

    My main was my Resto Druid until 1/2 way through this patch.  FYI, at 85 and with some decent gear Healing Touch was the only spell I used if a single target was dropping low on health.  Everything else was pre-emptive HoTs (keep lifebloom rolling of course, Wild Growth & Swiftmend on cooldown if people had any raid damage at all, and Rejuvenation for anybody and everybody that took spot damage).  But even at 85 I didn't start healing that way, because I didn't have enough mana to support it.

    So anyway, my point is that I cannot nail down a healing "rotation" to flash.  It's just too dependant on the encounter and on your gear.

    I get you. but oh well.

    (i was just talking about 5 man instances, but i guess it would not work as well in 10+ raids)

  • #16

    Mark of the Wild no longer flashes if someone in your party/raid doesn't have the buff (including yourself).

    Ah yes - that's my bad.  I discovered that this morning but then got side tracked.  I'll release a fix shortly - sorry!

    At your service.  Wink

    I believe the release I just made to Bitten's SpellFlash Library will fix the issue.

    WHen does this mod become useful?  Does it really require level 85 or is it smart enough to know what the possible rotations are at lower levels?

  • #15

    If you tell me your spec I could make an educated guess.

    Since your update of BittensSpellFlashLibrary-2.13.0, you get 2 errors with the druid one


    Interface\AddOns\BittensSpellFlash_Druid\Spells.lua:11: attempt to call field 'Init' (a nil value)

    Interface\AddOns\BittensSpellFlash_Druid\Scripts.lua:8: attempt to call field 'Flash' (a nil value)

  • #13

    2.13.0 is old.  I made a mistake and it was treated as the latest release for a little while this morning.  3.3.2 is actually the latest release and should be treated as such if you download again, or refresh your list in the Curse Client.
