About Bitten's SpellFlash: Pally

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Paladin 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 50400.2.2

  • The future of Bitten's SpellFlash: Pally 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 50400.2.1

  • Retribution: Bugfix - Divine Storm was not flashing for the 4pT16 proc.

Version 50400.2.0

  • Retribution: Updated the rotation to catch up with gear changes, including 4pT16.
  • Retribution: Added flashing for Guardian of Ancient Kings.

Version 50400.1.2

  • Retribution: Bugfix - Light's Hammer was not flashing.
  • All: Flashes WoW's 9th Anniversary Celebration Package.

Version 50400.1.1

  • Protection: Removed some leftover debug output. Sorry about that!

Version 50400.1.0

  • Holy: Added flashing for Divine Plea.
  • Holy: Now flashes Divine Light and Holy Radiance to consume Selfless Healer, instead of Flash of Light.
  • Holy: Anticipates changes to Selfless Healer.
  • Protection: Now uses Crusader Strike to apply Weakened Blows, unless you are in AoE mode.
  • Protection: Updated Holy Wrath to know it can stun Abberations if glyphed (localizations must be updated for this to work with non-English clients).
  • All: Updated holy power anticipation with changes from this patch.

Version 3.6.1

  • Protection: No more small green flashes for Sacred Shield when out of melee range. That was easy to confuse with the large green flashes it uses normally.
  • Protection: Now checks for the proc from Indomitable Primal Diamond before flashing your mitigation cooldowns.
  • Protection: Now checks for a number of external mitigation cooldowns before flashing one of your own.

Version 3.6.0

  • Protection: Added a solo/damage mode.
  • Protection: Sacred Shield now flashes green to refresh it with higher absorb values.
  • Protection: Now saves Avenging Wrath as a mitigation cooldown regardless of whether you took Sanctified Wrath.
  • Protection: Increased the priority of Judgment when under Sanctified Wrath.
  • Protection: Increased the priority of Holy Wrath.
  • Protection: Bugfix - Mitigation cooldowns were broken.
  • Protection & Retribution: Added AoE modes.
  • Retribution: Bugfix - Sacred Shield was broken.

Version 3.5.2

  • All: Bugfix for a Lua error.

Version 3.5.1

  • Holy & Protection: Bugfix - error in Word of Glory / Eternal Flame flashing on non-English clients.
  • All: Now flashes food buffs.

Version 3.5.0

Update for patch 5.3.

  • Holy: Holy Shock now flashes small at 1 stack of Daybreak, and normally at 2.

Version 3.4.1

  • Protection: Bugfix for Lua error.

Version 3.4.0

  • Protection: Added level 90 talents as survival cooldowns.
  • Protection: Spells will now flash small and green if they will be next but are still on cooldown.
  • Protection: Eternal Flame is now used just like Word of Glory, instead of as a HoT.
  • Protection: Word of Glory's / Eternal Flame's flash color is now red if you are wearing 2pT15 and the buff has less than 3 seconds remaining.
  • Protection: Damage-only abilities will no longer take priority if an HP generating ability is just about to come off cooldown.
  • Protection & Retribution: Healing spells now consider your incoming heals (except Lay on Hands).
  • Retribution: Added an extra priority for Templar's Verdict having to do with 4pT15.

Version 3.3.0

  • Retribution: Updated the priorities with new research, including a change when wearing 4pT15.
  • Retribution: Small green flashes now always warn you which spell will be next during wait periods.

Version 3.2.5

NOTE: This version includes a new version of Bitten's SpellFlash Library that I tried to test well, but if you find any issues please let me know right away.

Version 3.2.4

  • Protection: Bugfix - unglyphed Consecration flashing was broken. Sorry about that!

Version 3.2.3

  • A slight change was required for the newest version of Bitten's SpellFlash Library. You only need this update if you also update one of my other addons.

Version 3.2.2

  • Update to the latest Bitten's SpellFlash Library. If you choose to install it separately (which is no longer required), you only need to update one of them.

Version 3.2.1

  • Retribution: Bugfix - Exorcism flashing was not respecting its cooldown when glyphed.

Version 3.2.0

NOTE: Your options will be reset when you upgrade to this version.

  • Repackaging so that Bitten's SpellFlash Library is included with the addon, instead of downloaded separately.
  • Several other internal changes.
  • Protection: Added Hand of Purity as a mitigation cooldown (because it affects all damage in 5.2).
  • Retribution: Templar's Verdict will no longer flash when it is out of range.
  • Retribution: No longer flashes Sacred Shield if a damaging ability will be off cooldown within 1 gcd.
  • Retribution: No longer insists you switch from Seal of Insight to Seal of Truth.

Version 3.1.0

  • Protection & Retribution: Added Lay on Hands.
  • Retribution: Researched the rotation and updated accordingly for slightly better dps.
  • Retribution: Added lvl 90 talents.
  • Retribution: Added Sacred Shield, Flash of Light and Word of Glory.
  • Retribution: Hammer of Wrath no longer flashes when you have no target, or when your target is out of range.

    I appreciate the support you've given this addon over the years. I for one since Cataclysm with the introduction of Holy Power felt quite lost trying to relearn my class and this addon made a breeze playing it once again. Best of luck to you in the future, and I hope that before WoD launches you will have found a suitable successor for the project. In the eventuality that you don't, I humbly ask that you at least consider supporting at least this module. Thank you.

    I do not wish to continue developing this addon for the next expansion, so I am looking for another developer to take over.  Please contact me if you are interested and have strong software skills!

    What mod are you using to get your spells to be in a box like that? I mean instead of the bars.

  • #148

    Bartender.  See here.

    Is it possible to make the 4piece Divine Storm proc Flash rather than just highlight it with a red border? Divine Purpose is highlighted with a red border as well and it's fairly difficult to tell what is an empowered 4piece Divine Storm over a Divine Purposed Templars Verdict.

  • #145

    It should be flashing.  Note that there are 2 priorities above it, which you can see on the website.  Is that broken for you, or does knowing about those other priorities explain it?  I don't have the 4 piece, but another user confirmed that it was working correctly with the last update.

    Also, note that my addon does not control when spells get a red border - those replace Blizzard's default proc highlighting.  You can see more info on the Flash Colors page.

    All my other spellflashes work for their classes, but I've been trying to fix it not working on my Paladin for the past hour with no success. Each toon has the same addons loaded but I can't for the life of me figure out why it will not work for my Paladin.

  • #141

    Have you tried the troubleshooting instructions in the FAQ, under "Nothing ever flashes.  What's wrong?"

    I've fixed the blinking, and it appears attacking a target dummy has fixed it not working on mobs too.

    I'm glad it's working for you again.

    Yes I have, I'm also getting no LUA errors either. I can't figure out what may be conflicting as all my other alts use the same set up. I also tried reinstalling it too to no use.


    Its working when I use it on target dummys, but not when I attack mobs. When it flashes though the whole buttons seem to disappear and reappear - I'm playing on Low settings.

    bitten's spellflash pally is not working I made a lvl 1 pally and its not flashing at all. what am I doing wrong???


  • #139

    I just updated the FAQ with the answer to this question.  Here it is, for your reference:

    Bitten's SpellFlash modules are designed for max level characters.  They will all work before max level, but not at level 1.  When exactly they will start working depends on your class, and I cannot say when that will be.  In general, if you have most of the spells that are used for the rotation (you can find a list of them using the links at the top left of this website), it should be fine.

    For some reason this addon is no longer flashing things it usually does. It used to flash Inquisition when it was running out as well as Execution Sentence when it was ready to be used again. It no longer does this. 

  • #129

    What can you think of that changed between then and now?  Did you change any other addons around?  Put spells into macros?

    Most of the time Judgment will flash over Crusader strike. This happens ALWAYS during Avenging Wrath when I'm weaving Hammer of Wraths. Does this happen for anyone else?
