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.

    I tried using this but it was even more wonky, I would rather sit and watch my timers. I posted a reply asking about the set up on the thread though, because its really odd on my end.
  • #822

    I am having the same problems as Venestine, although in my 10m raid I am the only lock so I don't believe that is the problem with the dots nots being tracked.

  • #821

    Affli lock is quite broken, only tells me to use haunt, malefic grasp and drain soul :D Haven't looked into the scripts yet since most addons are more or less broken atm. Someone has made a ticket about locks already so not going to make another one (can't even remember my password really).  Just thought I'd comment here incase someone else comes here looking for info about warlock issues :)

     

    EDIT: After testing on a dummy the addon works fine, but if another lock applies agony, corruption or unstable affliction the addon thinks those are my dots and removes them from the rotation.

    Ovale is losing icon graphics it seems... It will hold the graphics shortly after an action bar reload, but afterwords shows only the bindings...

    EDIT: NVM, it was the ELVUI skin package causing issues... if you disable the skin it works fine...

    Is there a way to make only the main attack button show?

  • #818

    No, the default scripts are designed to show at least two buttons, one for main attacks and another for cooldowns.  There are also often off-gcd icons and such, but they cannot be disabled.

  • #815

    ok, I'm not sure if this should be posted here or under the script addon one. 

    I'm having a minor bug on my brewmaster monk. 2 abilities (blackout kick and tiger palm) are showing up with the incorrect hotkey button on them.

    Here is were it gets complicated.  I leveled up as wildwalker and those buttons were on 2 and 3 on my hotbar. I made my brewmaster spec and on the new ox stance they are now on 3 and 4 instead. the problem is the labels in ovale still show them as 2 and 3. Which just adds time when they come up making sure to remember the numbers are wrong

    I have completely removed them from the fierce tiger stance bar and the numbers still show 2 and 3.If i put the abilities back on the fierce tiger stance bar i can then manualy move them to 3 and 4 and it does updae on ovale. the problem is the next time i log off and back on it revets back to 2 and 3.

     

    I have tried reseting my profile, and i've tried deleting the profile. nothing seems to fix it.

  • #816

    This sounds like an Ovale bug.  Can you file a ticket with this information?

  • #814

    I've released a 5.1.7 beta version of Ovale that has a few fixes and some updated default scripts from the latest SimC profiles.  Note that these default scripts are mechanically generated by a program and may have bugs.  If you find any, please report via the ticket system.

  • #813

    Your simcraft importing link seems to be broken. Any alternatives or eta on fix?

  • #819

    I don't have direct access to the server running the SimC importer, so I can't test fixes to it.  It will have to wait until I can set up something locally.

  • #811

    Where is the ability to choose another script to use?

    when I type "/ovale config", I get the options window, but there is absolutely NO button or anythign that I can identify to choose another script.  I've read that its' at the bottom of the config window, but it's NOT there.

    Please help, thanks. :)
