About Bitten's SpellFlash: Mage

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Mage specs.

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.

    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?

    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.

    Any info on the Frost Bomb / Living Bomb not blinking?

    Yes, I get the graphic surrounding my character, but Pyroblast does not highlight when I proc it on my spell bar. I am also using CombustionHelper to track dot's I'm not sure if one would interfere with the other.

    I just tried it on my mage, and I did get proc highlighting on Pyroblast when it proced ... so I guess it must be something else that is preventing it for you?  I wish I knew how to prevent it!

    No worries, thanks for looking into it. If I do track it down I will post again. Any info on the Frost Bomb / Living Bomb not blinking? Is that something you would be able to modify with the next release? Any of those three talents are viable to take and put into the rotation for arcane now. They would blink at slightly different times however.

    Maybe it's because I am only level 79...but nothing is flashing for me on my arcane mage. Could that be why? It did work before the new patch. I know you are very busy in RL (I have moved too many times...i understand), so no rush in responding, but just wanted to say it doesnt seem to be working for me.

  • #74

    From what I can tell you should have every spell needed (except perhaps for some that come with talents, but that's ok).  Have you looked through the sections of the FAQ about things not flashing?

    Ok...I am very embarrassed to say that I didnt have the mage module installed *blush* 

    Lol.  Well I'm glad you found the problem and that it is working now!  :)  I wish you high dps!

    Ok...I am very embarrassed to say that I didnt have the mage module installed *blush* however...I went to install it via curse client....tried about 4 times...and it wouldnt install. So I installed it manually, and it seems to be working now. I just logged in to check, and I notice my mana gem is flashing, so I am assuming the rest of it is working now too lol. Thank you for y our response :)

    2 weeks? cmon, aint that a bit long? Fire's my main spec and i'm probably not the only one. I do get that moving has higher priority but ya must be able to squeeze it in somewhere ;)

  • #72

    I know, I know.  There are also 19 other rotations that I have not been able to do yet, that are also more than 1 person's main spec.  Fire is probably 2nd on that list.

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