About Bitten's SpellFlash: Hunter

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Hunter 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.

All the rotations implement automatic AoE switching though the detection can sometimes be a touch off.

Better focus management for BM Arcane Shot

Now, instead of just keeping a static pool of 64 focus at all times we
are willing to actually spend down further, based on being able to
regenerate enough focus naturally that we can hit the next important
ability when it is off cooldown.

This generally provides slightly smarter focus management, without
either starving or pooling unnecessarily.

When solo, Mend Pet at 80 percent, not 50 percent

Turns out that the much more conservative approach to using Mend Pet is
sensible in dungeons, but it means that tanking pets end up dying way
more often than they should when faced with level 100+ mobs -- and
non-tanking pets are even worse off.

Using Mend Pet more frequently in this situation means that you are much
less likely to get dangerously low in health and see burst damage take
them out, in turn improving performance.

Since the spell is optional, this also doesn't force a rotation change
on anyone.  (Not that most hunters have pets any longer, but whatever.)

    No need any longer.  Marksmanship is now part of this addon.

    Error I'm getting after latest addon update and hot fix from Blizzard (as of 3/11/13.  This is occurring with only SpellFlash, SpellFlashCore, and Bitten's SpellFlash: Hunter running

    <Lua error snipped by Bitten to avoid clutter.>

    Any insight would be most appreciated

    I think your Hunter module must be out of date.  The latest version is 2.6.0; you can check the options screen in game to see if yours matches.

    Good!  Happy hunting!  (Hunter-ing?)

    Somehow I seem to have screwed up the installation initially.  Reinstalling the following files seems to work now:

    1)  SpellFlash-6.5

    2)  SpellFlashCore-2.0.2

    3)  BittensSpellflashLibrary-4.2.1

    4)  BittensSpellFlash_Hunter-2.6.0-nolib

    or this combination also seems to be working:

    1)  SpellFlash-6.5

    2)  SpellFlashCore-2.0.2

    3)  BittensSpellFlash_Hunter-2.6.0

    I have no idea what I did but the reinstall seems to have taken care of the problem.  Thanks for the assist.

    Please add a Marksman rotation. With the 5.2 buffs to MM it's actually quite good now and many raiders will be using it. It's performing above BM currently and is the top performing spec in 10man according to raidbots.

  • #96

    I'm not promising a timeframe, but I have started looking at MM.

    <Edit:> Marksmanship is now part of this addon.

    Awesome, thank you. It's really appreciated. MM has been my favorite spec for years and I'm seeing a lot of hunters using it now that it's performing well in PvE again.

  • #93

    Hello, why there is not a Marksmanship rotation ? Especially as it comes buffed in the 5.2 patch. Thank you.

  • #94

    No particular reason other than I haven't made it.  Feel free to vote for its suggestion.

    I still don't see the MM's part neither in action nor in the settings. How long should we wait?

    The addon does not have an MM rotation.  How long until I make one?  I'm sorry, I do not know.

    For some reason, I thought Glaive Toss was part of the rotation and that it flashes when doesn't flash anymore...[must be getting old]

  • #89

    It should be flashing.  I did not realize the descriptions of the rotations on the website were out of date; sorry about that.  I updated them, so you can check them out to make sure you know when it should be flashing. Also check out this question of the FAQ if that doesn't straighten things out.
