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.

  • 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.

  • All: Flashes Water Walking when you are swimming.

Version 3.3.1

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

    Yes, I appologize for that issue.  I literally fixed it less than 5 minutes ago.  Please try updating the library again.

    Enhancement Maelstrom Weapon X4

    Any chance that there could be a command switch to turn this off for movement heavy fights? I know I can just ignore it, but I'd like to be able to turn it off. Under bloodlust etc, you'd gain 1-2 MS procs in the time it takes to cast the MS4 LB, so waiting that extra 10th of a second to get MS5 would be (in those conditions) a dps gain.

    If you can't or if it'd be difficult, no worries, but I figured I'd ask because I have seen similar features for other similar addons (like being able to set mana thresholds for consecration/holy wrath in ret). Then again, the simplicity may be why this addon doesn't bog me down like the other similar ones ;)

    For the movement portion: you bring up an excellent point.  How does making it not flash while you're moving sound?  I will definitely add it in the next release.

    For the haste portion: if you can provide some math or sims to show a haste threashold over which it's best to wait for 5 stacks, I will definitely change it.  I was going off the recommendation here (which was linked from the main EJ thread).

    <Edit:>  Lightning Bolt no longer flashes while you are moving unless it is instant.

    Enhancement ?

    Any plans for Enhancement coming soon?

  • #5

    Plans for Enhancement: yes.  Soon: hard to say.  Perhaps I'll queue it up after Balance and Fire - in which case I would guess within a couple weeks.  I do have two of those cool deathwing axes from LFR on my shaman (that I got from a single kill), so those would be fun to exercise.

    <Edit:> Enhancement is done!  Available in release 2.0.0.

    Don't worry. I will keep on him until he completes every single officially released class module. :) Unfortunately I can not guarantee the priority of this.

    Earthliving Weapon keeps flashing, even when i just have casted it.

  • #2

    I cannot seem to reproduce that problem.  Do you perhaps have a non-English client?  Weapon imbues are strange in that, as far as I know, you have to search for the actual text "Earthliving" in your buff tooltip (for other kinds of buffs you can use a number that is consistent no matter what language you use).  If this is the problem, please sent me a PM so I can make it work in your language.

    <Edit> Gucki was nice enough to provide German translations for this Shaman module, and most of my other modules!  The translations will take effect for German clients as each module has a new version released.  Thanks, Gucki!

    I'd like to submit translations for simplified chinese phrases, and in what format should I provide this information?

    Thanks for your wonderful addon.
