About Bitten's SpellFlash: Shaman

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Shaman 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 50400.1.2

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

Version 50400.1.1

  • Bugfix update to Bitten's SpellFlash Library.

Version 50400.1.0

  • Restoration: It's now possible to suggest both Water totems at once if you have the new Totemic Persistence talent.

Version 3.7.2

  • All: No longer flash weapon imbues when a fishing pole is equipped.

Version 3.7.1

  • All: Now flashes food buffs.
  • All: Now flashes Purge.

Version 3.7.0

Updated for patch 5.3:

  • Elemental: Changed the conditions for Ancestral Swiftness, since it's fine to use on Lava Burst now that it has a 2 second cast time.
  • Elemental & Enhancement: Adjusted the flashing while moving to take into account that Lightning Bolt can always be cast.
  • Enhancement: Elemental Blast waits for at least 1 stack of Maelstrom Weapon, and turns into an optional flash while you are moving.

Version 3.6.0

  • Elemental: Added an AoE rotation.
  • Elemental: Flame Shock can now flash during Ascendance.
  • Elemental: Lava Burst can now flash when Flame Shock is not up if Flame Shock is on cooldown.
  • Elemental: Lava Burst flashes small and green at the same time that Ascendance flashes (single target), to remind you that will be next if you press Ascendance.
  • Elemental: Added suggested flashing for when you are moving.
  • Elemental: Thunderstorm can now flash during combat, in case you are weaving in Chain Lightnings for 2-target AoE.

Version 3.5.1

  • Enhancement: Fix for an occasional Lua error.

Version 3.5.0

  • Enhancement: Updated the rotation, including a couple adjustments when you have T15 set bonuses.
  • All: Cleaned up Ascendance flashing (e.g. it no longer flashes while it is already up).

Version 3.4.3

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.

Version 3.4.2

  • Enhancement: Bugfix - I believe there was probably an issue with Stormblast flashing, which this should fix.

Version 3.4.1

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.
  • Elemental: Now properly detects that the cooldown on Lava Burst is not going to trigger if Lava Surge is up.

  • Restoration: Flashes Lightning Bolt if you have the Glyph of Telluric Currents, under 95% mana, and everyone in range has at least 90% health.
  • All: Flashes Water Walking when you are swimming.

Version 3.3.1

  • All: Added Spanish translations for weapon buffs so they hopefully flash correctly.

    Is there a way to get it to stop flashing that I need to use my weapon imbues? I put my weapon buffs on and the weapon imbues icon just flashes constantly still nomatter what.  Does the same thing with some of my other characters with their buffs, like my lock or my monk. even if an identical buff is already out it still flashes like crazy telling me to put the buff on. 

    That's a little bit annoying :(

  • #104

    That should not be happening for any character, and it does not happen to me even on my Shaman.  Does this happen in all your specs?  Are you on an English client, or using a different language?

    Also, if you are Enhance, be sure that Windfury is on the main hand and Flametongue on the offhand - not the other way around.

    Doesn't seem to work for 547

  • #102

    Still works for me.  Have you tried the troubleshooting in the FAQ?

    Trying to make an ancestral swiftness/lightning bolt macro with spellflash. I have the correct icon as well as the #tooltip and I tried pasting into a new macro. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you

    #showtooltip Chain Lightning
    /cast Ancestral Swiftness
    /cast Chain Lightning

  • #98

    When you say you have the correct icon, is that the one with just a red question mark on it?  Or did you browse to find the icon that looks like chain lightning?

    I searched through them and found the one that looks just like it. Should I leave it as a question mark?

     Yes, use the question mark.  If you run into any other troubles, check the FAQ under "My macro is not flashing."

    I haven't played my Horde Shaman for a couple of months, and just started again this morning.  However, I noticed that my spellflash isn't working...again.  I remember I had this problem before; to fix it, I had gone into the Curse client, deleted and then re-installed it, and it seemed to be working fine after that.  I just really don't want to have to keep doing that every time there's a problem.

    Can you give me some suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?  Is there some setting that I'm missing?

  • #96

    No, I'm sorry, I don't know what is causing that for you.  Maybe if you run through "Nothing ever flashes.  What's wrong?" in the FAQ, it will reveal exactly what went wrong, so you can fix it more easily next time.

    it says that its missing wtf do i do 

  • #94

    Does it say that there is a "Dependency Missing"?  If so, check the FAQ under "Which dependency is missing and where do I get it?"

    I see an option to flash only certain specs but I have a question. I want to flash restoration for my shaman for most things. However right now i'm leveling and I want to use Lightning Shield Instead of Water Shield, but restoration, you're supposed to use water shield. Instead of turning off all flashes for the spec is there a way to pick what spells to flash. I want everything to flash but the shields.

    Until I get duel spec, and maybe even after, i'm just leveling resto and this would be a great feature, if it's not already implemented.
