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 50400.2.1

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

  • All: Updated holy power anticipation with changes from this patch.

Version 3.6.1

  • 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.

  • 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.

    it dosen t work on macOS i have spellflash and spellfish rogue installed but it still says that dependency is missing :| .. Thanks 

  • #100

    Ever since the most recent update, I am no longer seeing any spells flash in any spec. As far as I can tell, I have everything set up right and have made no config changes from my previously working setup.

    Can you help?

  • #101

    When you say "most recent update", do you mean the one from 2 days ago, or the one from an hour ago?  If you've updated in the last hour and it's still not working, could you please try the steps in the FAQ "My spells flash for a short time, but then they stop and nothing flashes at all anymore."?

    I had not installed today's update when I made my post; thank you for drawing my attention to that.

    After installing today's update, the problem is no longer reproduceable. Thanks!

    For Ret, HoW under AW is flashing even at 5hp.

    All of what I have read says that TV5hp is the highest priority no matter what.

    Is there a reason for this?

  • #97

    With the action list used, it makes no difference.  Swapping the priority simulates to the same dps.  However, I see some work has been done improving the priority list for Ret since I last updated this module, so I'll have to check that out.

    <Edit:> Version 3.3.0 included updates according to the latest research out there.  With those modifications, it was worth swapping TV and HoW.  So now the priority is as you suggested.  :)

    One other thing I have noticed. With Ret 4pc bonus, it flashes CS over TV when you are under 5hp even if you already have the proc.

    I have it on my list to account for T15 set bonuses for Ret and Prot (and Guardian Druids, Arcane Mages, and Demonology & Destruction Warlocks ... I already did DKs and Monks.  Silly set bonuses).  Sorry I have not gotten to it sooner, and thank you for reminding me.  I think I will probably get to this within a week.

    <Edit:> I had my notes confused when I wrote this reponse.  I had already worked in the set bonus for T15, but I tried simulating your suggestion and it showed an improvement, so I added that in the last release (along with a bunch of updates for Prot).

    If I recall correctly, you should prioritize TV above CS when you have the proc, so as not to waste the chance of another proc.

    Thanks again for all you do to keep these addons up to date.

    Shield of the Righteous doesn't seem to be flashing at all. Even when the ability is active and i'm at full Holy Power. I suspect there may be something wrong with the length of time it flashes, it seems to flash very briefly, a hell of a lot shorter than any of the other abilities, and then disappears after maybe 0.2sec

    These are the conditions when it should flash (which I just updated on the website):

    Shield of the Righteous: When another spell is flashing that will overflow your Holy Power, or when either Bastion of Glory or Divine Purpose are about to expire.  Only flashes when you have at least 3 holy power and are in melee range.

    So, the most common scenario is that it will flash when you are at 5 holy power and it is also flashing Crusader Strike or Judgment.  The idea is to use it at the last second before wasting holy power (or a Divine Purpose proc), allowing you to use it for Word of Glory up until that point if you take damage.  If you'd rather use the shield all the time instead of WoG for certain fights, then you may be able to time the shield better to line up with attacks - this is just the best way I've come up with for general use.

    So, if it flashes for .2 seconds, that should mean that you only let Crusader Strike (or Judgment, etc) flash for .2 seconds before you press it?  Does that explain what you are seeing, or does it appear to behave differently than I describe?

    Thanks, sorry about all that.

     If you don't mind me asking then, why doesn't the shield proc when BoG is not present?

    It does flash at times when BoG is not present.  At least, it does for me.  For example, it flashes when you already have 5 holy power, and another spell is flashing that will grant you more holy power.

    On a bit of an unrelated note, not sure if this is a glitch but is Divine Protection meant to flash on CD? Sorry about all this trouble

    The best I can do to answer that is point you to the "Survival Cooldowns" section of the protection page of the website.

    Oops!  Sorry about that.  All fixed.

    Can you make Hammer of Wrath flash for both retri and prot? Similarly to how blizzards 'flash' works. HoW is a pretty good finishing move for tanks.
