About Bitten's SpellFlash: Monk

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Monk 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.

Some modules have AoE modes. Check the descriptions of each rotation to see if one is available for the spec(s) you use.

Version 50400.1.6

  • I have gotten a pretty good response, so I think (and hope) Bitten's SpellFlash will live on!

Version 50400.1.5

  • The future of Bitten's SpellFlash: Monk is in question. I no longer wish to maintain this addon, starting with patch 6.0. If you are interested in taking it over, keeping up with optimal rotations, and you have programming skills, please leave a comment or PM on Curse.

Version 50400.1.3

  • All: Flashes WoW's 9th Anniversary Celebration Package.

Version 50400.1.2

  • Brewmaster: If wearing 4pT16, save Purifying Brew until its heal will be effective.

Version 50400.1.1

  • Bugfix update to Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

Version 50400.1.0

  • Mistweaver: Some small tweaks to the melee rotation.
  • Windwalker: Storm, Earth and Fire: bugfix when using a mouseover macro to cast it, and better target tracking when not cast on your primary target (though it can still be fooled if you are fighting multiple mobs with the same name).
  • Windwalker: Modified Tigereye Brew flashing since it no longer gets a stronger buff from Mastery.
  • All: Added or updated flashing for Chi Brew w/ its new behavior.
  • All: Updated Rushing Jade Wind according to the new patch.
  • All: Adjusted AoE flashing when you have Rushing Jade Wind to fall through to the single target rotations when no AoE spell is available.

Version 3.5.4

  • Brewmaster: Added Breath of Fire to the rotation when in damage mode.
  • Brewmaster: Pools less energy when in damage mode.

Version 3.5.3

  • Brewmaster: Now checks for the proc from Indomitable Primal Diamond before flashing your mitigation cooldowns.
  • Brewmaster: Now checks for a number of external mitigation cooldowns before flashing one of your own.

Version 3.5.2

  • Windwalker: Flying Serpent Kick now flashes small, so you have to think more about it instead of pressing it on instinct, since it's only useful against enemies with large hit boxes.

Version 3.5.1

  • Brewmaster: Converted "solo mode" to "damage mode", by linking it up with the global damage mode option (for more info see the website).
  • Brewmaster: No longer flashes Guard when in damage mode.
  • Mistweaver: Changed the AoE flash color to Orange.
  • Mistweaver: Added more checks to Surging Mist, such as making sure the damaged party member is in range.
  • Mistweaver: Bugfix - Blackout Kick will now flash during Spinning Crane Kick as it should.

Version 3.5.0

  • Mistweaver: Added an AoE damage rotation.
  • Mistweaver: Added Chi Wave to the damage rotation.
  • Mistweaver: Only flashes Surging Mist with 5 stacks of Vital Mists if someone in your group needs the heal.
  • All: Now flashes Chi Torpedo when it would otherwise flash Roll.

Version 3.4.2

  • Windwalker: Bugfix - there was an error in the condition for Tiger Palm on non-English clients.

Version 3.4.1

  • Brewmaster: Tweaked the rotation to waste less energy and less chi.
  • Brewmaster: Added more Blackout Kicks to the AoE rotation, to extend Shuffle.

Version 3.4.0 beta

  • Brewmaster: Added flashing for Blackout Kick to extend Shuffle when Chi is capped.
  • All: Added flashing for food buffs.

Version 3.3.2

Update for patch 5.3.

  • Windwalker: Tigereye Brew now flashes any time it is not up in solo mode.

Version 3.3.1

  • Windwalker: Bugfix - Zen Sphere was broken, and causing spam in the chat pane.
  • Windwalker: Fists of Fury is now always considered optional, in case you know you will have to move soon.

Version 3.3.0

  • Brewmaster: Added a solo rotation.
  • Brewmaster: Flashing for Chi Burst is less quirky.
  • Windwalker: Adjusted the way Storm, Earth and Fire works. It now only flashes w/ the AoE rotation, except that it now flashes red if you are targeting the same as one of your images, in which case it flashes red.
  • Windwalker: Added flashing for Chi Burst.

Version 3.2.5

  • Brewmaster: Don't flash other mitigation buffs when Ring of Peace is up.
  • Brewmaster: Many abilities that depended on your health now account for incoming heals.
  • Brewmaster: Don't flash other mitigation buffs when Staggering is up (from 2pT15).
  • Brewmaster: Account for Purifier (the buff from 4pT15).
  • Mistweaver: Bugfix - Touch of Death was flashing even when on cooldown.
  • Windwalker: Added Storm, Earth, and Fire.
  • Windwalker: Now consider the Tigereye Brew cap to be 19 if wearing 4pT15 (to avoid wasting the possible extra proc).

Version 3.2.4

  • Brewmaster: Added flashing for Black Ox Statue.
  • Mistweaver: Added flashing for Jade Serpent Statue.
  • Mistweaver: Mana Tea now flashes whenever it will not cap your mana if you have the glyph.

    Is this addon going to be updated? I just asking because it is a fantastic addon and would really hate to see it die.

  • #100

    Hey Everyone! Due to the time its taking for Spell Flash to be updated after Patch, Update or Ex-pac's I have tasked a team of 17 people here at Id Software who will be working on an Add-on that will make look and act the same as spell flash. It is currenly developed by part time gamers and 3rd tier coders. I feel your pain with the regards to the slow progress of a add on and we have decided to take it in house. Stay tuned for more information to be posted on all Spell Flash sites forums.

    Any update on this? Has someone taken this over? Don't want to see it go

  • #96

    Quick question, will this project aim to be updated for 6.0 release or will it be closer to WoD release?  

  • #97

    That is a great question, and unfortunately I don't know the answer exactly.  Except that it probably won't be ready on Tuesday for the 6.0 release.  Monk is the one module that no new developer has claimed yet, and I just don't think I can make it a priority to update myself.  I wish I had something more definitive to say right now!

    Thats pretty sad.

    Spellflash Monk worked really well for me.  With 6.0, I am really battling to get my rotations optimal, and there isnt much out there to assist.

    Am waiting in hope.....

    After today's update I get the following when logging in:

    <Lua error removed by Bitten to avoid clutter.>

    Removing and reinstalling seems to have fixed it.

  • #94

    Only because I fixed the code in the mean time.  :)

  • #92

    Oops!  Totally my bad.  I will fix this right away.

    <Edit:> It should now be fixed.  Thank you for reporting this so quickly.

    Hi, I'm having a bit of a problem. I recenetly started using spellflash. When my monk hit 10 and I picked mistweaver it no longer flashes for max dps, I only see flashes for healing. Is there a way to enable both at the same time and if so how do I do that?

  • #88

    There is an optional damage rotation for Mistweavers (read more about it here).  First, visit the options (Interface -> AddOns -> SpellFlash -> Configure Class Module) and make sure it will activate.  But, second, know that the addon is designed for max level players.  I cannot say how well it will work until you have most of the spells listed on that page I just linked.

    All modules are activated but I'm only getting flashes for Mistweaver

    As long as your spec is Mistweaver, you will only get flashes for Mistweaver.  In the options, make sure "Solo Mode when not Grouped" is checked, and that should be all that is necessary.  I just looked at the code, and "Flash Melee Abilities Above % Mana" only matters when you are in a group.
