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.

    Whether you created the macro before or after installing SpellFlash should not make a difference, but some users report strange things with macro flashing (which I've tried to account for in the FAQ).  I'm glad your issue is sorted.

    I noticed that this addon doesn't suggest you to use Inferno Blast when proccing Heating Up buff.

    It's important because it's guaranteed to give you instant Pyroblast.

  • #131

    It should (refer to the priority list above).  Please check out the section of the FAQ about "why isn't spell X flashing" and let me know if that clears up your issue.

    Frost still has a bug where icy veins stays lit up.

    I have noticed recently after an update that the pyro proc 'flash' Is not working 100% of the time.

    I liked it when spell flash worked with the blizz UI flash working together.

    A recent update has got rid of the blizz UI features completely.

    Is there any way I can have both working together? It was great to have the 2 working side by side.?

  • #129

    Thank you for calling my attention to the Icy Veins issue again.  This time I was able to figure it out, so it will be fixed in the next release.

    Can you be any more specific about the Pyroblast issue you're observing?

    Check out the last question in the FAQ for a little more about why I disabled proc highlighting.  I'm sure if you give alternatives a chance you will like them better.

    <Edit:> The Icy Veins issues should be taken care of, and procs are now displayed in a way that I hope will make everyone happy.

    On My Frost Mage Icy Veins is flashing during cooldown, I can use it and it just flashes away like as if it is still telling me "press me press me"    

  • #123

    Hmm that's no good.  What your level?  Do you have it glyphed?  Are you playing on an English client?

    <Edit:> This issue has been fixed.

    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"
