About Bitten's SpellFlash: Warrior

This module flashes suggested spells for all three Warrior 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 60000.2

Update to latest BSF library.

Version 60000.1.13

  • Protection: The rotation was not being presented sequentially. Changed the rotation to be very sequential.
  • Fury: No changes.
  • Arms: No changes.

Version 60000.1.12

  • Protection: Re-worked the entire rotation scheme, incorporationg the 6.0.3 changes. Previous release was errant in that it flashed when not available and did not provide correct rotation.
  • Fury: Re-worked the rotation and provided more detail criteria to assist in the Rage pool related idle times.
  • Arms: No changes.

Version 60000.1.11

  • Sorry, this ended up being a re-release of 10 since I forgot to commit the work.

Version 60000.1.10

  • Protection: No changes.
  • Fury: Corrected the Rage Pool calculations for rotations. Would not flash at all when half rage.
  • Arms: No changes.

Version 60000.1.9

  • Protection: No changes
  • Fury: No Changes
  • Arms: Corrected the Flashing when ability was not ready.

Version 60000.1.7

  • First release with Protection enabled. Also modified Fury to conincide with the 6.0.3 nerfs/changes. Arms was not changed, same functionality as 60000.1.6.
  • Protection: Focused mainly on single target with Sudden Death Talent. Shield Barrier and Shield Block will have small flashes indicating they are available.
  • Cooldowns are not currently flashed. Taunt and Mocking Banner are not currently flashed.
  • Fury: Rotation changed somewhat -> Need to stay Enraged so Bloodthirst is the go to. Sometimes it is necessary to wait until it procs. Basic rotation is
  • to Bloodthirst, Berserker Rage, Wild Strike, Raging Blow, Bloodthirst, Raging Blow, Wild Strike, and then use Dragon Roar/Storm Bolt and Execute as it
  • comes available. This will vary slightly based on the stacks of Raging Blow. The flashes should follow this rotation.
  • Arms: No changes in this release but I am aware of flashing issues when the ability is not ready. I will address that next.

Version 60000.1.3

  • Let's try that again ...

Version 60000.1.2

  • Arms and Protection: Completely disabled (temporarily) so they stop spewing errors to the chat log.

Version 60000.1.1

  • Fury: Changed rotation to work with the 6.0.2 WoD PrePatch.
  • Arms and Protection: Still working on these two specs for WoD changes.

Version 50400.2.3

  • I have gotten a pretty good response, so I think (and hope) Bitten's SpellFlash will live on!

Version 50400.2.2

  • The future of Bitten's SpellFlash: Warrior 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 50400.2.0

  • Arms: Updated rotation according to new research, including adjusting for 2pT16.
  • All: Execute mode works correctly on the training dummies that drop to exactly 20% health.

Version 50400.1.1

  • Protection: No longer pause mitigation flashing when Second Wind is up.
  • All: Flashes WoW's 9th Anniversary Celebration Package.

Version 50400.1.0

  • All: Updating flashing for Impending Victory according to its changes this patch.
  • All: Rotations do a better job at anticipating queued spells, switching to your next spell sooner when you press a button.
  • All: Smoothed out some quirky flashing.

Version 3.5.3

  • Protection: Now checks for the proc from Indomitable Primal Diamond before flashing your mitigation cooldowns.
  • Protection: Now checks for a number of external mitigation cooldowns before flashing one of your own.

Version 3.5.2

  • Protection: Bugfix - Victory Rush was flashing regardless of whether you had Victorious.

Version 3.5.1

  • Arms: Only uses Impending Victory when it's free.
  • Arms & Fury: Now uses Impending Victory even during the execute phase when it's free.
  • Protection: Damage mode is now linked with the hidden option to toggle it in groups (see the website for more info).
  • Protection: Shield Block and Shield Barrier no longer flash in damage mode.
  • Protection: Only flashes the lower piority Thund Clap in damage mode.
  • Protection: Shield Slam and Revenge now flash regardless of rage when in damage mode.
  • Protection: Now anticipates the cooldown reset on Revenge from dodges and parries.
  • Protection: Now waits up to .5 seconds for a rage generating ability instead of using a damage ability.

Version 3.5.0

  • Arms: Updated the rotation based on new research.
  • Arms & Fury: Added AoE modes.
  • Arms & Fury: Smoothed out some quirks in the flashing.
  • Fury: Heroic Strike now flashes more often.
  • Fury: Execute is never saved to build rage when solo.
  • All: Shouts now flash if the raid buff is needed out of combat, if an enemy target is detected.

Version 3.4.0

  • Protection: Added an AoE mode.
  • Protection: Added a solo mode.
  • Protection: Added flashing for level 60 talents.
  • Protection: Added flashing for Storm Bolt.
  • Protection: Heroic Strike now flashes when you are not tanking and rage is high.
  • All: Now factors in Glyph of Hoarse Voice when deciding if shouts will cap your rage.

Version 3.3.6

  • All: Bugfix for a Lua error.

Version 3.3.5

  • All: Now flashes food buffs.

Version 3.3.4

Update for patch 5.3.

  • Most spells that depending on your health now account for incoming heals.

Version 3.3.3

  • Arms & Fury: Heroic Leap flashes at 1/2 size.
  • Protection: Improved Rage calculations, including accounting for 4pT15.
  • All: Shouts will flash any time they can be used to buff you.

Version 3.3.2

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.

  • May be slightly nicer for lower level warriors who do not yet have Colossus Smash.

Version 3.3.1

  • Fury: Bugfix - fixed a Lua error encountered during some of the rarer cases Wild Strike should flash.

Version 3.3.0

NOTE: Your options will be reset when you upgrade to this version.

  • Slightly tweaked how it chooses which shout to flash.
  • Repackaging so that Bitten's SpellFlash Library is included with the addon, instead of downloaded separately.
  • Several other internal changes.
  • Arms & Fury: Updated rotations to the lastest in Simulationcraft.
  • All: Removed Deadly Calm.
  • All: Adjusted uses of Impending Victory for heals to the new values in 5.2.

    Prot PLEASE!? :D

    Okay, so I wanted to tell you how great your addons are. I play my alts ALOT and i even end up leveling most to above 70 when time suits me. That being said, I can't always remember the rotations and if there are any changes to them, i usually dont know about it, unless my alt is 90. So I rely on your addons more than you know. And they havent yet failed me. Originally, i would just download any "spellflash" addon that i saw for each class, and hoped it worked right. some did, some didnt. ugh. Since you brought out these during MoP Beta, I have been using them and they are so awesome. Thanks again. :D

  • #30

    I'm glad they are serving you well, and that you like them!  I'm not going to make any promises about a time frame for Prot, but when people request a spec it does make me want to work on it more.  Smile

    <Edit:> Done!

    First I want to say that I've been using your modules for a while and love them.  Now my issue, I use both your Warrior and Pally modules and I noticed that interrupts flash for both Prot and Ret in the Pally Module.  Could you please set it up for Warrior interrupts like Pummel and Disrupting Shout to flash?  Thanks again for the awesome modules.

  • #28

    Absolutely.  They are always intended to be included, the fact that Pummel was missing from Fury was an oversight (it should be working for Arms).  I added that, and also added Disrupting Shout for both, so they will be included in the next release.

    <Edit:> And now it is released.

    So I have to say that you fixed all those previous issues I was having when you just recently introduced the new proc flash with the red border! Just awesome. Love it.

  • #26

    Excellent.  If you ever find times that you think you should be pressing one of those red border buttons but something else is flashing, let me know :).  (For a single-target boss fight, of course.)

    For some reason just the other day while running fury (I only run fury and prot... prot has never worked for me in regards to spellflash) Execute stopped flashing all together and Brutal Strike only flashes sometimes. It seems to me that the really bright flash that I assumed was blizz's own UI flash has gone away from these abilities also.
