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.

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.

    Is the fire spec meant to be using "Mage Armor" I would have thought "Molten Armor" would be better?

  • #98

    You are correct.  The latest version fixes it.

    Tested this morning..... Working very nicely I must say :)

    Xemnosyst,

    Thanks again for the update. The Fire rotation is spot on. I did notice in testing that if I swap Fireball for Frostfire Bolt (which is now viable when using the FFB Glyph) that Frostfire Bolt does not blink when Fireball should blink. Is there any way to fix this?

  • #96

    Thanks for the tip.  It will now flash FFB along with FB if you have the glyph.

    @ Xemnosyst

    I would just like to thank you for your time and effort into making this little add on of yours work.  I know that it must be a great struggle at times, for what ultimately must be; very little rewards.  But, for what it's worth to you.... You have my gratitute... you've helped turn this game around for me & your addon has become a beacon in the WOW universe, so... Keep up the great work and hurry up and get the fire issues sorted ;)

    Hi, I&'m from Germany, and my english is very bad :) find addon asking Flash Mage&'s Spell simple supper for arcane, fire and wanted to try, but since it does not happen, the buttons do not light up help please

  • #85

    I think you are saying:

    The addon is good for Arcane.  It does not flash for Fire.  Please help.

    The addon should not flash for Fire yet.  It also should not flash for Frost yet.  Wait 2 weeks, then I hope it will flash for Fire.

    <Edit:> And now it should flash for Fire.

    Errors when using before and after update

    I've been getting these that popup while on arcane. I also noticed it happens on my hunter as well and my resto druid. Haven't really played my other characters so for all I know it's happening on all of them.

    Message: [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "BittensSpellFlashLibrary" tried to call the protected function "OverrideActionBarButton2:Show()".
    Time: 08/31/12 03:03:18
    Count: 6
    Stack: [C]: in function `Show'
    Interface\FrameXML\ActionButton.lua:268: in function `ActionButton_Update'
    Interface\FrameXML\ActionButton.lua:505: in function `ActionButton_OnEvent'
    Interface\FrameXML\ActionButton.lua:124: in function <Interface\FrameXML\ActionButton.lua:117>

    Locals: <none>

  • #83

    Blizzard's "tried to call protected function" errors are still way off, I see.   Just to be sure I searched all of my & SpellFlash's code.  Nowhere does it call OverrideActionBarButton2:show(), let alone during combat when it's protected.  It has been a well-known and oft-feared error message for addon authors for a long time now.  Basically -  there is an addon causing the problem, but the WoW client blames some other seemingly random addon for it.  

    The best advice I can give is to disable 1/2 your addons, then see if it happens again.  If it still does, disable 1/2 of your remaining addons, if it does not, re-enable 1/2 of the ones you disabled.  Continue like this until you narrow down the addon that is actually to blame.  You might get lucky if you start with any other addons you can think of that would want to show or hide action bar buttons.  Wish I could give you an easier solution.

    Noticed when using the arcane rotation if I choose Frost Bomb or Living Bomb instead of Nether Tempest it doesn't flash at all... is this intended? Frost Bomb should flash when off Cooldown, and Living Bomb should flash just after the previous expired and be priority 1 in the arcane rotation, but everything else continues to flash around them both.

    Also thank you for the timely response to my previous comment, I understand that there is no fire rotation. However, the question was simply until a Fire Rotation is built in, would you be able to leave blizzard's default proc flash on for Pyroblast so it shows something or is this simply not possible?

  • #76

    Blizzard proc highlighting is off for you??  It's not turned off for me even on specs that are working, and it's annoying.  I have a ticket in to BigRedBrent about it.  Either way, since there is no Fire rotation proc highlighting should still be working when in Fire spec.  Make sure the setting in SpellFlash itself allows it.

    <Edit:> And now it should flash for Fire.
