About Hekili

Version 2.30

Hekili v2.30 is now released!

There is a known issue that your existing displays may shift slightly in position as I've moved the anchor for displays to be in the center of each display, rather than the center of the primary icon. This should occur only once.

If you have had issues with your displays resetting their positions after reloading, please update to 2.30.7. If the problem persists, please submit a ticket!

Getting Started

Upon installing the addon and logging in, you will be presented with two priority displays. The bottom display is your primary display, which is set to automatically switch between single target, cleave (if supported by your specialization), and AOE. The upper display is set to AOE at all times. If there is a number in the lower right corner of your AOE display in red, that indicates the minimum number of targets that the AOE display is built for. When you actually have enough targets to follow the upper display, the number in red will turn white.

Note: For Enhancement Shamans looking for more information about the recommendations, see the updated guide at Unleashed Elements. It does a good job of explaining the priority list that is used by this addon.

By default, both displays are unlocked and can be moved by clicking and dragging the first icon to where you would like it positioned. When both displays have been placed where you want them, you can right click the first icon to lock all icons in place.

Basic Customization

There are a few basic functions you should use to get the optimal benefit of this addon. To set these up, type /hekili in your chatbox and press Enter. This will open the configuration UI to the Welcome tab, which may have useful news and updates about the current version of the addon. Below, you will find a brief explanation for each section.

Basic Settings

Under Basic Settings, there are a few options you can change to alter the function of the addon. When first getting started, the most important settings are Locked and Debug. If you want to move your displays again, uncheck Locked and move them as previously instructed. The Debug function will allow advanced users to get more information about why the displays are recommending current actions by mousing over the icon when paused.

Filters and Keybinds

Skipping over Displays and Action Lists for a moment, the Filters and Keybinds section demands some attention. In this section, you'll find a few functions that help you direct the addon how to respond to certain circumstances. As noted above, the Pause feature allows you to lock the display with what it is presently showing. If you checked Debug under General Settings, placing the mouse over an icon while paused will give you additional information about why that icon is appearing right now.

The Mode Switch is a feature that helps you to control your primary display. By default, your primary display will work by detecting how many targets you've recently hit, and recommending single target, cleave, or AOE actions based upon that information. While this is helpful most of the time, there are some fights where you would want to focus on a single-target despite having additional enemies present. Setting a Mode Switch keybind lets you change your preference in combat. Pressing your Mode Switch will tell the addon to ignore adds and focus on single-target until you press the Mode Switch again.

You can also change the Switch Type to make the Mode Switch swap between single-target and AOE regardless of the number of targets detected. This is Manual mode.

Next, the Cooldowns feature is very important. Most specializations have a few abilities that you might want to save for special circumstances in a particular fight. You can check Show Cooldowns and these abilities will be recommended as frequently as possible, when appropriate. You can also set a keybinding so you can show and hide cooldowns throughout a fight at your convenience. This is highly recommended.

You can also set keybindings to tell the addon to recommend hardcasted spells (any spell with a cast time) and interrupts (or not). You may or may not want a keybinding for these, but you should probably set a preference. Note that some action lists may not work properly when hardcasted spells are disabled (i.e., it would basically render the Elemental Shaman display inactive).

Displays

Clicking the + next to Displays will show you the default displays set up for your class' specializations. Default displays and action lists are shown in Blue. Advanced users can craft their own displays and action lists; as many as you'd like. Clicking the + sign next to a specific display will allow some additional customization. With the display itself selected, you can change the PvE and PvP Visibility. Want the addon to hide in BGs? Set PvP Visibility to "Show Never."

For visual options, click UI and Style under the display. Here, you can manually set the display's X/Y position on the screen, the number of icons to display (up to 10), the icon spacing, direction, size, and so forth.

Action Lists

Clicking the + next to Action Lists will show you all the lists that are processed to make your displays work. They are closely based on SimulationCraft action lists, with minor tweaks and adjustments when necessary. If you are familiar with SimulationCraft profiles, you shouldn't have too much trouble reading each action and its criteria and seeing how they work.

Advanced Users

For users interested in making their own displays and action lists, please refer to the Advanced Usage guide, which is a work in progress.

FAQ

Q. Can you add Masque support?

A. It's been in for a long time! I've recently made the addon more frequently and more aggressively check for Masque if you've installed that addon separately. If it still doesn't work, keep frequently asking me until I figure out why.

Q. I only want one display that will automatically switch between single-target and AOE. What's the best way to do that?

A. The primary display will behave this way by default. You can just turn off the AOE display by going to /hekili > Displays > (spec): AOE and unchecking Enabled. Double-check the Filters and Keybinds section to be sure that the Switch Type is set to Auto and the Current Mode is Auto as well. Again, it is highly recommended that you bind a key for your Mode Switch, so you can tell the addon to restrict itself to single-target situations when you need it to.

Q. I want the primary display to only show me single-target. What's the best way to do that?

A. Under Filters and Keybinds, make sure the Current Mode is set to "Single Target."

Q. This addon is bad. It tells me to do something other than what I want to do.

A. It's a priority helper. If it told you to do what you were already doing, it wouldn't be helping you. Also, this isn't a question. But seriously, there could be a couple of good reasons the addon shows you something different than you were expecting. In the vast majority of cases, the addon is identifying circumstances that might not be as easy to track as a living, fleshy creature. Use the Debug and Pause features to see why the recommendation is made. Otherwise, maybe it's a bug! I update the addon as often as possible and actively work to translate SimulationCraft profiles soon after any critical updates. Sometimes, that means I have to add a feature to the addon. Sometimes, there's a translation error. Post a ticket and let me know if something seems broken!

Features

The major features added to the addon since the last release are:

  • Improved and updated action lists for all supported specializations. Default action lists and displays will be automatically updated.
  • Limited SpellFlash support (on a per-display basis).
  • Set keybinds to toggle your cooldowns, interrupts, hardcasts, or mode -- single target, cleave, or AOE. These toggles will dynamically show or hide action lists or abilities that don't meet your current criteria.
  • Use a keybind to pause the addon. A debugging mode is also available to show detailed tooltips when paused, to see exactly why a particular icon is shown at a particular time.
  • Ongoing optimization of the main engine. Instead of constantly updating every potentially useful bit of information, the addon now calculates each bit of information on demand.

Upgrading

Bear in mind, your settings from the 5.x version of this addon will not work with 6.0. The new version will reset any profile that wasn't created with Hekili v2.

Developer

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any issues. Private messages work well. Submitting a ticket is good as well. I do NOT get notifications if you comment on this page, unfortunately.

    I'm being told to refresh flame shock at 15ish seconds instead of 9 for some reason. In the action lists ele single target flame shock is set to <=9.

  • #182

    Interesting.  Have you set your addon to "Debug" mode and used the Pause feature to see why it's recommending Flame Shock?

  • #178
    Avenging Wrath

    I just getting back into raiding as ret on my pally, I was using clcret to get a feel for the new rotation / priority. Yesterday I installed Hekili to see how I like it. I really like the look and feel of it, and I peeked around at the settings to see how things worked. 

    I beat on the target dummy for a good 4 mins and I never did see Avenging Wrath pop up. I read on your blod about a 15 sec delay due to the wait for Bloodlust / Heroism. I looked under the conditions for Avenging Wrath, for AW & AW (1) I seen syntax about Seraphim. Is there something that I have to turn on to get AW to show up?

    I disabled the AOE Rotation, and just set the Cleave threshold for 2 mobs that way I only have 1 bar showing

  • #179

    Cooldowns like Avenging Wrath are linked to the "Show Cooldowns" toggle under Filters and Keybinds.  Bind a key for it, and you can tell the addon to suggest cooldowns when you want them (or not to show them when you don't).

    It helps for special phases of a fight, like if you want to wait for a new wave of adds to spawn or if the boss is immune and stuff like that.

  • #176

    Any chance of seeing this work with Preist and Shadow?  I've tried to import from simucraft but i keep getting ual errors.

  • #177

    No, there is currently no module for Priest in general or Shadow in particular.  Without a class module, the addon would have no way of knowing what any of your abilities do (e.g., generate orbs, spend orbs, apply a debuff...), so it cannot tell what to recommend of the next several seconds of combat.

    I don't have any plans to add any class modules at this time.  If another develop builds a Priest module, I'd certainly consider including it, but I don't have enough development time to build that up myself.  Sorry.  :(

  • #175

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for creating and maintaining this addon. I took my Elemental Shaman alt into Highmaul and BRF for the first time ever this weekend and was able to consistently stay at the top of the meters, often out DPS'ing other characters that signifcantly outgeared me, solely because of this addon. I have recommended Hekili to all of my Shaman, Paladin and Monk friends that struggle with their rotations and priority lists and hope that others eventually discover how great this addon really is.

    Keep up the great work!

    The extremely lazy bastard in me was wondering if it is possible in some way to make a keybind that always casts the first spell on the prioritylist. :)

  • #173

    No, not built into this addon anyway.

    One could probably use the Hekili_GetRecommendedAbility() function along with GnomeSequencer to make something like that work, but I won't be doing anything to actively support it.

  • #170

    Is there any way to add Purge into the rotation for shaman dps?  For example on blast furnace when we need to purge the earth shield buff off of the elementalists. 

    It seems like Hekili can detect when to wind sear, it would be great if I could add this into the action list too.

  • #171

    That's not a bad idea.  I'll toy with it.

  • #165

    Request: Allow us to enlarge the display more. Bad eyes, small monitor, etc.

  • #167

    Will do.

  • #169

    Thanks. It really helps the peripheral vision while scanning the screen. Less tunnelling.

  • #164

    started using this addon today for my Ele Shaman. Still learning how to fully customize it to my liking but so far its very useful. Thanks for that.

    I have a warlock in my guild struggling with demonology currently. He has asked for help more than once with his rotation and general "how to" questions. Ive shown him guides writen by fan sites and top end raiders but he is still struggling. My question is, since i see some people are using this addon with there ret pally's based off a few of the comments I read below, will this addon work with any DPS class?
