About Bitten's SpellFlash: Mage

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Mage specs. You can find *lots* more information on its website.

Important note: Fire Mages must set the "Minimum Combustion Total Damage" option to achieve good results. More information is available here.

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.

Implement Arcane "burn" rotation

This doesn't try and conserve mana nearly as much, which makes it
appropriate during the burn phase, or when we are less than level 80 --
given high mana only counts with our mastery.

Ultra-basic Arcane Mage rotation update.

This is a barely complete "conservative" rotation, intended to keep mana
as high as possible at all times.  This is step one in implementing the
full rotations.

    Xemn,

    At level 90 in Fire Spec with Invocation, your evocate should be blinking yellow whenever the Invocation buff drops off, is there a way you can add that in? thanks!

  • #113

    The buff is actually called "Invoker's Energy"

  • #118

    Thanks man, as always your work is really appreciated... especially in the Mage community :D

  • #117

    I'll do what I can.  Time is limited and thanks to not having internet for 2 weeks I have LOTS to do.

    <Edit:> Now included in the latest version.

    I am dying for the Frost spec of this! Even if it was just the general mage spells like buffs, spellsteal, counterspell, evocation, etc that all specs should be using. When Im in frost spec, none of that is showing for me which is like not having spell flash at all. Thanks!

    I can't promise how soon I'll be able to do this, but I do want to do it.

    <Edit:> Done.

    That is the only option that pertains to Fire.  If you're good with Simulationcraft you can experiment with different numbers there.  Perhaps once I'm set up w/ internet at home on my own computer again I can post a .simc file for people to play with.  Otherwise, you just have to go by trial & error, using your own experience to determine a good value.  If I remember correctly, I settled on a number like 60K for my mage, but did not spend a lot of time refining it.

    Currently when I have Spellflash active I get a number of words sitting in the middle of the screen.  The ones on my mage at the moment say:

    26.7% x 11
    OK (OK)
    OK(OK)

    can I get some info on how to get rid of this, otherwise I will just have to do without the add on as this is very annoying....

  • #107

    Uncheck "Show Combustion Monitor" in the options.  I recommend leaving it on for at least a while to get a feel for a good value to use for "Minimum Combustion total damage".  You can simply click & drag it wherever you want.

    Spellflash Library did an update today, and all of my Bitten's Mage Spellflash addon settings were all reset. Also, once I reset them Combustion no longer blinks yellow even at my preset value.
