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 5.4.34 release.

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

Johnny C. Lam:
    - Druid: Increase ratio threshold before refreshing Balance DoTs early.
    The latest SimulationCraft uses 30% increase as the threshold so match it
    in the default script.
    - Information that's queried with GetItemInfo() might not be available.
    Wait for the GET_ITEM_INFO_RECEIVED event and query again for meta-gem and
    weapon information.
    
    This fixes ticket 403 by @Dhanir.
    - Rogue: Premeditation requires stealth.
    - Death Knight: Fix Dark Transformation usage.
    Dark Transformation requires 5 stacks of Shadow Infusion on the player and
    applies a buff to the pet.
    
    This fixes ticket 379 by @bamabandit.
    - Allow specifying a cooldown time for buffs.
    This cooldown time is how long to expect between when the buff is gained
    and can be used to note the internal cooldown of a trinket that applies a
    buff.
    
    Decorate trinket buffs with approximate internal cooldown times.  The
    syntax is "buff_cd=N" where N is the number of seconds.
    
    Add a BuffCooldown(id) script condition to return the remaining time
    before the buff can be gained again.
    - Add additional spells used in SimulationCraft action lists.
    - Add haste buff from legendary caster meta-gem.
    - Allow setting and getting variables within the simulator from the script.
    This feature can be used to keep state from the script.
    
        SetState(name, value) sets the named variable to the given value.
        GetState(name) gets the value of the named variable or 0 if missing.
    
    Internally, a new action "SetState" was added that always returns true.
    This new state action has no output.
    
    OvaleFrame has been adjusted to avoid flickering if a state action is the
    best action.
    - Fix debuff spell list names used in GetAura.
    - Rename *Remains() script conditions to *Remaining() for readability.
    The old names are still usable as aliases of the recommended condition
    names.
    - Put all script condition definitions into a single file.
    This reverses a design decision to split up conditions into smaller files
    that ended up making this addon harder to update for users.  Keeping all
    conditions in a single file reduces the likelihood of files being added or
    removed, which allows for updating the addon without needing a full
    restart of the WoW client.
    
    This does make the conditions.lua file harder to maintain, but a clean
    internal code layout should alleviate this concern.
    - Rename TicksRemain() to TicksRemaining() for better readability.
    - Add PrimaryResource() script condition for the current power level.
    PrimaryResource(id) returns the current amount of the player's primary
    resource for the given spell.
    - When unparsing Ovale ASTs into scripts, avoid unnecessary whitespace.
    - Teach OvaleAST unparser to automatically insert parentheses as needed.
    The AST structure implies that parentheses are needed when unparsing
    expressions, based on the relative precedence of the operators involved.
    Any existing parentheses that are extraneous due to precedence are
    ignored when unparsing.
    - Fix operator precedence bug with "and" and "or".
    "And" binds more tightly than "or" in most logical operator precedence
    systems.
    - Add ExecuteTime() script condition to match SimC's "execute_time".
    This condition returns the larger of a spell's cast time or the GCD.
    - Add "amplified" buff from the Amplification trinkets.
    - Add "stealthed_buff" spell list for common rogue and druid stealth buffs.
    - Add "_buff" and "_debuff" to the default raid buff names for consistency.
    - Rogue: Fix spell information to add to the correct spell IDs.
    The spell information for the Crimson Tempest DoT wasn't correctly being
    added due to the wrong name reference being used.
    - Warrior: Fix rage cost of Impending Victory after landing a killing blow.
    - Druid: Don't cast bear Berserk with Incarnation is active.
    The name of the buff referenced in the script was incorrectly
    "son_of_ursoc" instead of "son_of_ursoc_buff".  Fix by @Wiljo.

    No Spellicons

    Hi, 

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

     

  • #879

    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:

     http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/5/wowscrnshot033113163906.jpg/ 

    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.

     

  • #874

    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.

  • #866

    Ovale 5.2.25 should fix the problems that DoT classes were having because the default scripts didn't have the required tick information for some spells.

  • #869

    Working again for me. Thanks for the swift reaction!
