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 50400.2.3

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

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.

    Just realised it doesnt tell you to use sacred shield when in retrubution spec, Also is there a way to make arcane torrent flash when someones casting a dispellable spell? thankyou, other than this this addon is amazing Smile

    It does not flash Sacred Shield or any other defensive ability when in Ret, that's true.  No self-heals, either.  It only flashes things that help your dps (plus an interrupt).  I'm not sure I want to add defensive/healing abilities, either, since it could be annoying for anyone who only has them on their bars for special occasions.

    As for flashing Arcane Torrent - you might want to check out BigRedBrent's SpellFlash: Racials.  I haven't actually used it, but it sounds like the kind of thing it should do.

    Prot Pally is not flashing for me.  When I am in the interface menu, the Selected Class Menu won't drop down and does not recognize my Pally.  Checking Use All Class Module doesn't do anyting either.  I try to click Configure Class Module, but nothing happens.  When I play my DK Tank, it recognizes the DK Tank and works beautifully.  Also noticed it isn't flashing for my Hunter.

    Sounds like it's not installed correctly.  From your character selection screen, if you click the "AddOns" button, does it list the Pally or Hunter modules?

    Thank you for the timely response.  I discovered that having two accts on the same computer some how created 2 different directories that they loaded to.  Having fixed it and transfered to the directory that WOW looks at, works like a charm.  My first acct went to the Games directory and I played Hunter and DK on it, then when I went to Dual Box and setup a 2nd acct, they switched directories to the x86 diretory.  I thought I had those 2 installed but found out that it just wasn't so.  All modules now work.  Thanks once again for your assistance.

    How would I go about getting them in the actual program?

    The first thing I would try is the Curse Client.  I'm guessing it has fancy ways to figure out which directory it should use?  Plus, once you get it set up, you'll wonder why you ever installed addons any other way.  Otherwise - I don't know.  The default path is C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons.  If that's not correct, I guess just search around your computer looking for another place they could be.  If you find a directory named BittensSpellFlash_DK, there's a good chance you found it.

    No, I'm just seeing DK, Shaman, XHunter and FlashCore.  But in  Computer/Program Files (x86)/WOW/Interface/AddOns... I see them all.

    How would I go about getting them in the actual program?

  • #58

    That sounds like the problem I fixed with the last version.  How recently have you updated?

    Happy days for tanking my pally again! Thanks so much :)

  • #50

    Please update prot pally flash. I miss it telling me to interupt. The timing on your add on is way more accurate than DBM. Ok could be I have a sucky pc and DBM is fine and it's all me but still, I never missed the interupt using spellflash :)
