About Ovale Spell Priority

Ovale Spell Priority is a rotation-helper addon that shows you what spell or ability you should use in order to maximize your damage.

It displays one or more icons that show the cooldown of an action. The action is conditionally defined through a user-defined script, e.g. you may display either Corruption if the DoT is not on your target or Shadow Bolt if the Corruption DoT is already on your target.

Default scripts are available for all dps classes and specializations, based on SimulationCraft. You may also customize the default script to suit your needs (see Documentation) or use scripts made by other users.

See the video of a survival hunter using Ovale during Wrath of the Lich King.

Please use the forums to submit scripts or discuss them. If you want to report bugs, use the ticket manager.

Features

  • Default scripts for every DPS class and talent specialization.
  • Tracks DoTs, buffs, debuffs, cooldowns, combo points, runes, mana, everything that a player would need to choose what to do.
  • Adapts to your talent points and glyphs.
  • Change quickly the configuration at any time with configurable checkboxes and drop-down lists that can be shown/hidden by clicking on the icons, e.g. switching between single and multi-target damage, setting the curse to cast.
  • Multi-target DoT tracking: remember which target had a DoT and when the DoT will expire, allowing the script author to support multi-target dotting.
  • Compatible with the action icon skinning library Masque.
  • 100% configurable: everything is in an easy-to-understand script that you can modify and test in real-time without reloading your UI.
  • Can be used to track crowd-control spells on your focus.
  • Scoring system: evaluate how well you followed the script. Add a new Ovale panel in Recount and Skada, with a score between 0 (very bad) and 1000 (perfect).
  • Up to two-spells-ahead accuracy with some classes.

FAQ

Why does it not work for me?

Try to reset your Profile in the Ovale settings. Most problems come from faulty scripts.

Why is the key binding displayed for an action wrong?

The action may be in several action bars, e.g., the bars that you can cycle through or the bars that appear in special cases like Shadowform or Cat Form.

Why is the key binding not displayed at all?

The action must be in your standard Blizzard action bar in order for Ovale to know which key binding is used.

Why is the icon sometimes red?

The cooldown that is displayed in an icon is not always the true action cooldown. If this cooldown is longer than the action cooldown, then the icon is red. In most cases, it means that if you use this action too soon, then you will overwrite or clip a DoT, which may not be what you want.

Why can't I click on the icon to cast the spell?

Blizzard does not allow this. Only a predefined sequence of spells can be bound to an action icon and this sequence can not change in combat.

On my low-level character, there is nothing at all.

You need to reach level 10 and choose a specialization.

There is no bane or curse (or whatever) in the rotation.

Click the icon and select the bane or curse that you want to use from the dropdown menu list.

Tagging as 5.4.30 release.

--------------------

Johnny C. Lam:
    - Fix copyright dates for files touched in 2014.
    - Change Enemies() to default to only counting enemies you have attacked.
    To get the old behavior of counting all enemies that are hostile to the
    player's group, then use "Enemies(any=1)".
    
    This more closely matches expectations of script writers that want to do
    different actions when faced with differing numbers of enemies -- it's
    sensible to count adds only when they are in range of your attacks.
    
    This fixes ticket 323 by @hoogoon.
    - Only create widgets for controls if the controls are non-empty.
    This avoids creating checkboxes with no names or dropdown lists with no
    entries.

    Enhancement Shaman Not Working

    Greetings all. I hope there is some one who can help me out here. Ovale just won't show up for my enhancement shaman (level 73). It shows up for all my other classes but my shaman. I've tried all the commands /ovale show ect. but nothing happens. I've even tried reinstalling the add-on and so fourth, again nothing. Anyone have any suggestions?

    No Spellicons

    Hi, 

    great addon but it dont show me the spellicons i see the hotkeys only and no icon.

    I am having a similar iss to the shadow priest shadow word pain suggestion,  savage roar for feral DPS is the only thing that gets suggested after a couple of abilties in the rotation saying to just spam savage roar, and I dare not mess with the code least I completely mess things up

  • #876

    I would like to make a request: More options for placement of icons - maybe some sort of icon group where you can set rows/coulms. I have gotten it almost as I want it with a little hacks:

    What I'd like is to move the small icons to the sides so they align with the big one. I don't know if it is somehow possible - maybe just an individual slider for margin between icons for normal and small icons.

    I apologise if this is already possible, but I haven't been able to figure it out...

  • #877

    Please create an enhancement ticket for this idea.  It may not be implemented like you describe, but some way to improve upon things by either creating icon groups, or maybe a TellMeWhen-like system that lets you create icon bars and assign perhaps a function to the icon, etc., could all work.

  • #875

    It works now, thank you.

    Good news: I pushed a new release of Ovale to basically trigger a new push to Curse Client and it seemed to work this time.  You should be able to get the latest release of Ovale with Curse Client now.

    Shadow Priest Script

    I am having issues with the s-priest script in 5.2.25, it's not displaying mind flay correctly, instead it wants me to cast Shadow Word:Pain over and over!  LOL.  I dug at the script for a little bit, but only made it worse, so I decided to just let you know.  :-(

     Just tested 5.2.24 and the same issue exists.

    I tried 5.2.25 on my level 71 shadow priest and the rotation seemed accurate on the training dummy.  Are you sure you had 5.2.25?  There's some problem with Curse Client not getting the latest update even though it's available on the website, so you might have had 5.2.24 installed.  Also, make sure you're using "Ovale: Shadow" and not another script.

    Re: Shadow Priest Script

    This problem still persists - the shadow script is not working correctly. It is still displaying shadow word pain instead of mind flay. Perhaps it was working on your level 71 priest because you don't have some abilities /talents available to you yet? Not sure if that would mean anything but it's definitely not working correctly for level 90 shadow priests.

  • #870

    any 1 else having trouble updating to the 5.2.25. Everytime I try to update it goes to 5.2.24

  • #868

    bugging out bad for me, as a frost dk at level 85 i cant even target a hostile mob without getting pages full of errors in my chat. most of them involving the words "0, nil, 0,0,0,0,0"

  • #873

    This was definitely fixed in 5.2.25, but I know some people are having troubles with downloading through Curse Client right now.  Please try getting it directly from Curse.com and installing it into your Addons folder.

  • #867

    Do you guys even test this stuff before you release it? after like 35% hp this thing suggests Rupture and Envenom at 1 combo point. nice work.
