    - **v3.3.3** * Fixed: lots of fixes, initial (non complete) enhancement module included
    - Thunderstorm removed
    - Hopefully better foe tracking
    - More tune on rotation, iLVL detection added. Earthquake is now in single target rotation, if iLVL>=575 and enabled in the configuration
    - Tuned Flame Shock conditions
    - Don't show cooldown timer on debuff tracker, if Show Numbers for Cooldowns is on in Interface / Action Bars
    - Only show advise frames when target is hostile

    Well this isn't working for me. Testing to a target dummy Lava Burst is never in the rotation. Every other cast is Flame Shock.

    I just played around with the new enhancement mod for a few min and it's already looking pretty good! There are a few things that would be great to add, and I'm sure some of these are on your todo :D

    • A CD for Fire Nova. It would be great to have it show the cooldown timer too. It could even just show up for 10 seconds or so after you fist use it (so it would show during an AOE phase), then disapear after it hasn't been cast for little while. Or just show it when Magma totem is down.
    • An option to set a HP % at which 5 stacks of Maelstrom Weapon would suggest a heal instead of lightning bolt.
    • Add Feral Spirit (and possibly our fire and earth elementals) to the CD mini frame where Ascendence currently shows

    That's all I could think of after going through it really quick, but I'll do some more testing for some optimal rotation testing too!

    I'm so happy for this addition! Thanks again!

    Thx for the update! You're the best! :D

    I believe this: 

    Display hint for casting

    • Thunderstorm, if mana is < 70%

    is not needed anymore. Since 6.0.2 "Thunderstorm no longer regenerates Mana." as we read in the patch notes:

  • #311

    Will be removed from next version.

  • #309

    When i uncheck "Enable Earthquake in rotation" it's still showing up.. Optimal number of enemies is three so that it's worth using EQ at least when you don't have crazy ass gear. So i think it shouldn't be showing up in rotation before there are three or more enemies in combat. And not showing at all when you uncheck the "Enable Earthquake in rotation" box. And one more thing i noticed is always when i open Elementarist options, all the boxes are unchecked but on the second time everything shows up normally.

    In 3.3.3 if Enable Earthquake in rotation is unchecked, EQ will not be shown in spell flow, instead it will be displayed in where Purge, Wind Shear spells are suggested.

    Have you ever considered including an enhancement rotation to this addon?

    The best Enhancement priority addons, EnhaPrio and Shockandawe, have been discontinued and I have always loved how well elementarist works. It would be such a great addition!

    That would be wonderful!  I used to use ShockandAwe was so sad when I couldn't use it anymore.  I recently switched to ele and found this addon, it's awesome!

    Awesome!! /Hi5

    Enhancement module is on my list. Once I've finished the elemental part, I'll start working on it. You can check an early version of it in 3.3.3. Feedback is welcomed.

    This might be a bit of an odd question, but is it possible to disable the rotation while keeping the flame shock bar enabled? I find that bar incredibly useful while I'm experimenting with some various WeakAura setups.

  • #313

    You can set Spell advisor frame Alpha to 0 which make it invisible.

    In 3.3.3 you can turn off the advisor frame.

    Suggestion. Since there will always be slight variations to our priority rotation due to gear level, or set piece bonuses or whatever else may impact it, is there a way to add an option in the config to manually adjust the rotation in game? I understand that would be a bit of a project to the add-on but it would help a lot of people (including you as a developer) out. It would fix the issue you’re having with Earthquake currently and best of all allow people to utilize your add-on with the ability to customize it to their play style. Best example I can give of this is with clcret. You have to manually go in and tell it what to prioritize as a rotation. It even gives options to prioritize for spells based on active buffs/procs. 

  • #304

    If a spell is questionable I'll put a GUI option for that. However for example EQ is the top in AoE priority list (unquestionable), I really don't see any reason for put a checkbox for that.
