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.
  • Elemental & Enhancement: Flashes Healing Surge when solo and you could use the heal.
  • 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: Fixed a recent error in the German translation that caused weapon buffs to continuously flash.
  • All: Added Spanish translations for weapon buffs so they hopefully flash correctly.

Version 3.3.0

  • Restoration: Added some flashing for Restoration.

Version 3.2.1

  • Making the "Out of Date" status go away. Please report any real issues w/ the new patch.

Version 3.2.0

  • Elemental: Prioritize Lava Burst above Flame Shock.
  • Elemental: Do not flash Elemental Mastery during Bloodlust.

    For the past few days SpellFlash does not seem to be registering that I have weapon enhancments applied to MH and OH weapons. The Flametongue and Windfury buttons stay lit whether the buffs are applied or not. Is this a bug introduced/caused by the last patch?

    This problem has been on-going for a couple pf months as far as i can recall after each patch I cross my fingers and hope its been fixed but it is still there Frown

    This is a real shame as all other chars use this spell flash addon and all work seemlessly this is the only problem as far as I can tell with the Shaman spellflash set everything else works fine.

    I even tried disabling all my other addons except the ones required to instigate the Shaman spellflash set, just in case something was conflicting but the same problem occured Cry

    This is an amazing addon and I love the way it works, and enjoy using it, please can you fix the problem with the Shaman Flametongue & Windfury weapon buffs, thanks ../hugs

    First of all, I'm sorry it has taken so long for me to respond.  Your comment fell through the cracks during the end of my semester (I'm back in school!  Yay?), then I lost track of it during my vacation.  But on to the real issue ...

    Do you play WoW using an English client?  If not, are there correct translations for your language on the localizations page?

    I've downloaded Shaman addon with curse client. I have library, shaman and spellflash directory. But i see nothing in game, nor even flash or anything. It seems that its not working. What am i doing wrong?

  • #67

    What spec do you play?

    They are still working for me.  Do you use an English client?  If not, does the tranlation of "Flametongue" and "Windfury" look correct on the localizations page?

    I am use Spellflash Shman with my ele skill and it works fine, bit when I want to use my second specc enhancer i will not work for an ehancement rotation. am i doing something wrong?

    thanks in advance

    It should be working.  First make sure it is turned on in the options, and if it is, see if there is a Lua error you could report.  Some basic instructions for finding a Lua error are here.

    Man, ptBR section you have to fix the line

    L["Flametongue"] = " Labaredas"

    removing the space before the word Labaredas, here is an image:

    the translation that I sent you earlier already contained this "mistake" but was not giving problems so far.

    cheers

    Thank you for the report.  That will be fixed in the next release.

    I know you are very busy with leveling toons and working on updates, but if it isnt too hard of a thing to do (I have no idea what doing this kind of thing entails lol) would it be possible to have wind shear flash on resto spec when i need to interrupt please? If it is too much to do at this time, I totally understand, I just didnt realize how much I depended on that on my healing spec until I didnt have it any more lol. And my OS is Enhancement, so I will try out your updates and see how it goes. Thanks so much for all the work  you put into these friggen awesome add ons!

  • #59

    I'm sorry to leave you hanging for so long.  It is a reasonable request, but I'm sorry I'm not sure it will happen anytime soon.  It is a very good idea to do that for any of the specs that don't have rotations (flash interrupts, raid buffs & such), but so far when I sit down to work on SpellFlash I've been more motivated to improve existing rotations.  I'll keep it in mind, though, you never know what may appeal to me next!

    Don't take this as "I'll work on whatever I feel like so go away."  I appreciate the feedback, I want to know what people are thinking about the addons, and it really does impact my priorities.  Especially if you find a problem in an existing rotation, that is always a top priority for me.  So keep the comments coming!

    I just made a beta release that includes Ascendance and level 90 talents.  My poor Shaman is still level 85, so if you can please test my changes and leave a comment!

    To get the beta using the Curse Client, right-click the addon and set the "Preferred Release Type" to beta.  If you download your addons by hand, find the beta in the "Other Downloads" tab above.

    I absolutely love this addon, but the only thing that troubles me is that it wants me to hard cast LB.  I only want to use it at 5 stack.  Is there anyway I can modify this?  

  • #54

    It should not trouble you!  That is indeed part of playing an Enhancement Shaman to it's maximum dps potential.  If you insist that you'd rather sacrifice DPS because you don't like the way it feels, the only way would be for you to modify it in the code yourself.  Should you choose to do that, the relevant stuff is in Rotations.lua, where you would need to remove both "Lightning Bolt at 4" and "Lightning Bolt at 2".  Be aware that anytime you update the module you would have to re-do the change.
