    Looks like you reloaded during combat and as frames are locked during combat it errored.

    Please restart wow and let me know if you got the error when logging out of combat

    3.7.0 Release

    Hi Everyone

    Version 3.7.0 is released and has 2 main focuses. 
    1.   Support for lower level shaman by adding in checking of spell avaialblities before recommending spells
    2.   Improving the managment of Flame Shock with the class trinket via 
          (i) Better buff prediction
          (ii) Tracking the buff status at the time of casting
          (iii) Dynamic Elemental rotation controlled by configuration settings to manage Flame Shock behaviour

    For those who are not sure when to chose which option, we added a text file to cover the options in the addon directory.

    And lastly, as always there is the odd code fix and optimization here and there.,

    After i installed the new version, elementarist dosent show up in the ui. I have checked the addon configuration and it is aktive but the 3 frames are not there. I also pressed reset frame position, but that didn't work.
    After going back to 3.6.4 everthing is ok.

    Thanks Phaldor

    you supplied the key infomration in your screen shot..

    It would have been even more helpful to mention you were running in French langauage and that your  specification is élémentaire not elemental.  -   you forgot to mention you are running the french language option..

    That is what I need to fix.. it is looking for the specilization as elemental not élémentaire

    3. yes, target and in range (see second screenshot)

    Is there anyway to disable Lightning bolt for enhance? I use this for pvp and the option to ignore LB would be very helpful.

  • #499

    There isnt an option in the code at the moment to do so as lightning bolt is considered a core part of the standard rotation.  However with the way the modules are wrtiten it would be easy to modify your local version to do this ... Just delete the releveant secion in the enhancement.lua file that is the lines for

    ----Priority 5 -
    --- Priority 12
    --- Priority 16
    --- Priority 18

    It can be coded in as a option if sufficent people request it

    Elementarist-3.6.4Release-19 Alpha

    Glad to hear it isn't elementarist ...:)   If you enable LUA errors in the interface it will give you a series of error infomration that might help you debug the issue.

    Moveanything causing massive lua errors, also setpoint, which is my mouse most likely. Took awhile to isolate as i did not expect those to be faulting, you live n learn. Elementarist still working well for me.

    Building a Buffed Flameshock

    Hi Fleabites - 

    Tried ad tonight wrked amazingly well, with only one false prompt that woulkd have downgraded the applied FS the whole night in various LFR'sr testing.
    My dps went up 20k and back to without pushing it averaging 74k a fight up from 54k yesterday same stuff.

    Thanks for the feedback on the spell prompt changes (less flame shock prompts) with the changes made to the buff prediction code in  the Develpment version 

    So instead i opened with my start getting FS up and at full strength then ignired refreshing it, and just EQ, and CL or single target damaged and procced ES whenever it was up  ... This seems to support your reply 100%. I will proc earthshock whenever prompted but be smarter on my FS Dot and leave it when maxed....FInally got to the bottom of my dps issue and i was extremely happy

    This is what I do too

     On to the 2nd improvement you suggested ......  The following changes are latest release
    There are 2 options in configuration panel which enable a dynamic rotation which will change the spell prioirity if you dont have a MAX power Flame shock on your current target.
    (i) Activates based on time remaining on the DOT (1 Seconds effectively disables this).
    (ii) Enables the checking of the current targets Flameshock and if is not fully buffed modify ther rotation.  By default this option is  disabled.  You must enable this feature. 

    Both settings trigger the same modification to the priority list - Earth Shock at 15 charges is removed and Unleash Flame only will prompts with 2 charges of Elemental Fusion.

    I downloaded the latest file earlier on today, Think it must have been the one you mention as it had those check boxes and a slider for seconds to reapply ES.


    Fantastic, absolutely mint mate. So pleased with it, head and shoulders above what it was before your work. Now it's ticking along just fine , doubt i could beat it on dps, freestyling a ST fight.

    I have no critism/suggestions on this release pending, as it is, it's fantastic.

    Cheers B & T marvelous work, you guys rocked it.
