About Bitten's SpellFlash: Rogue

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Rogue 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 50400.1.5

  • The future of Bitten's SpellFlash: Rogue 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: Bugfix - the new Recuperate flashing was broken.

Version 50400.1.2

  • All: Added flashing for Recuperate out of combat when solo.
  • All: Recuperate can now flashing during its last tick, since it will not be lost.
  • All: Flashes WoW's 9th Anniversary Celebration Package.

Version 50400.1.1

  • Bugfix update to Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

Version 50400.1.0

  • Combat: Anticipates combo points from Ruthlessness.
  • Combat: Use Marked for Death even with 1 combo point, since with Ruthlessness you will rarely be at 0.
  • All: Slightly improved resource anticipation.

Version 3.3.1

  • All: Now flashes food buffs.
  • All: Now flashes Shiv to dispel enrage effects.

Version 3.3.0

Update for patch 5.3:

  • Combat & Subtlety: Shuriken Toss is now only used when out of melee range (its dps benefit came from its low energy cost).
  • All: The "No Backsab List" now includes Qiang the Merciless.

Version 3.2.1

  • Assassination: Bugfix - the Mutilate-before-Rupture priority was broken.
  • All: Improved energy calculations when wearing 4pT15.
  • All: The "No Backstab List" now includes Azure Serpent.

Version 3.2.0

  • All: Revisited all three rotations, updating them with Shadow Blades and level 90 talents, along with other changes from new research.
  • Combat: Now tracks Bandit's Guile correctly when you miss.
  • Subtlety: Improved energy prediction (w/ Energetic Recovery).

Version 3.1.3

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.

  • Combat: Sinister Strike will no longer flash outside of melee range. This release is mostly about the update to the library.

Version 3.1.2

  • Assassination: No longer pause at 4 combo points to "refresh" Rupture if it is not up.
  • Combat: Never suggests a finisher when Revealing Strike is down.
  • Combat: Never tries to pool energy when solo.
  • Combat: Never tries to apply Slice and Dice early to last through Deep Insight when solo.
  • Combat & Subtlety: Don't flash Slice and Dice w/ less than 5 combo points when solo and you have Glyph of Deadly Momentum.
  • All: Added Recuperate flashing when solo and you have Glyph of Deadly Momentum.
  • All: Bugfix - Flashing Deadly Poison was broken.

Version 3.1.1

  • Missed Paralytic Poison in the last version.

Version 3.1.0

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.
  • Combat & Subtlety: No longer flashes Ambush if you have Cloak and Dagger and the enemy is in the (resurrected) "No Shadowstep" list.
  • All: Added Marked for Death.
  • All: Added flashing for Non-Lethal Poisons.
  • All: No longer insists that you switch from Wound to Deadly Poison.

Version 3.0.0

  • Combat: Added a Combat rotation.
  • Subtlety: Bugfix - the energy from Relentless Strikes was not being anticipated for Eviscerate.
  • Subtlety: Bugfix - Shadow Dance and Preparation should have been flashing yellow. Now they are.
  • All: Added Expose Armor.

Version 2.4.2

  • Subtlety: The detection of the glyph "Tricks of the Trade" and the talent "Subterfuge" were broken.

Version 2.2.0

  • Combat: There is now a blacklist of mobs on which to flash Killing Spree (like Deathwing's Head). Please see the description to see what they are, and leave comments to have it adjusted.
  • Subtlety: There is now a blacklist of mobs on which to flash Shadowstep (like Ultraxion). Please see the description to see what they are, and leave comments to have it adjusted.

    Yes there is!  Just go to the options for the module and un-check it.  Get to the options like this:

    Escape -> Interface -> AddOns -> Click the plus next to SpellFlash (at the bottom of the list) -> Select the Rogue Module.

    thank you kind sir, i'm surprised on such a hasty reply :D

  • #123

    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!

    You incorporate Dismantle at all in Combat rotation? What do you think of using it?

    Dismantle is great depending on the enemy/opponent.  SpellFlash doesn't know whether it will do any good against your particular target or not, so that is left up to you to incorporate if needed/wanted.

    Heya X,

    Is there a way I can turn off Adrenaline Rush flashing at CD? I really just want to use it manually or macroed to Blade Flurry for multiple mobs. 3 minute cooldown is a waste sometimes for grinding unless mobs are really close to each other.

    There is a way!  I just added it to the FAQ:

    Though this is not officially a feature of SpellFlash, you can take advantage of a quirk to stop a particular spell from flashing if you wish.  Use a macro for that spell, and do not do one of the things mentioned in "My macro is not flashing": either do not use the question mark icon, or do not begin the macro with #showtooltip, or turn of "Flash Macros" in the options.

    However, remember that not using AR at all for just 3 minutes while grinding is even worse than wasting most of it.

    Also, I see I missed the edit in your last post - I'll go check that out now.

    Ya Adrenaline Rush can be wasted , but I would rather pop it with multiple mobs when ganged up on with Blade Flurry...

    Thanks again

    Thanks for your work

    As always-thanks for this-it has really helped a LOT of people

    BTW-on your Faq site-you have Rogue "solo mode" saying it flashes at 5 combo point which is no longer the case-you changed it a year ago to flash always with combo points after combat which is really great now!

    Thanks for the thanks!  :)

    For the 5 combo point thing - which spell are you referring to?
