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 5.4.29 release.

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

Johnny C. Lam:
    - Fix improper checkbox name in shaman and druid scripts.
    The improper name was causing a blank checkbox to be generated in the
    options menu.
    - Encapsulate and enhance the logging facility within Ovale.lua
    Cap the number of lines held by the log to a maximum of 4096 (2^14) lines
    to prevent table overflows causing memory allocation errors.  This fixes
    the following tickets:
    
        ticket 392 by @ggrider
        ticket 396 by @sparrowlab
    - Manipulate the Ovale trace/bug flags more accurately.
    Add a new method ResetTrace() that resets the trace/bug state and is
    called prior to a script being compiled.
    
    Rename the PostRefresh() method to "UpdateTrace" to more accurately
    reflect its actions.
    - Don't pass more arguments than the format string requires.
    - Check for a non-nil table before referencing its values.
    This fixes ticket 395 by @Shalimaar.
    - Fix Casting() condition to work when passed a spell ID.
    The checks in Casting() were missing one for if the spell ID parameter was
    passed and was not the name of spell list, "helpful" or "harmful".
    
    This fixes ticket 382 by @Genkidama.

    How do I get rid of the global CD icon it shows between skills? It really bothers me and haven't found a way to remove it (playing ret paladin).

  • #753

    I've never seen the option to not display the global cooldown, but you can set up Weak Auras to function similar to Ovale and it doesn't keep track of the gcd.

  • #775

    For those that came to the forums looking for the solution to this. (Like I did cuz it bothered me a lot.)When you click on the ovale icons it comes up with a big old check box to turn off the wait icon. (Like the old versions used to have AOE check boxes etc...)

  • #755

    Well I've never seen an icon for global cd until testing the ovale version 5.0.2 before that it would show the cooldown just like action bar would with the actual spell icon being greyed out. now it shows the icon for the spell and after that an icon that is the cooldown. I still want to see the cooldown like it used to be, not the icon since it makes me pay too much attention to the addon instead of actual game mechanics :D

    As shadow, specifically in BG's, Ovale has me constantly toggle shadowform on and off.

  • #751

    You'll have to edit the shadowform line from "Spell(shadowform)" to something like "if BuffExpires(shadowform) Spell(shadowform)"

  • #746

    i am having a problem with Unholy DK rotation, it keeps prompting me to use dark transformation constantly even when its not available to be used.  I have reset the profile to default and it didn't help, it works fine with frost spec

  • #745
    DK

    So i have tried to use this on my DK, and the ovale screen does not show up, .. blood spec and its the only spec on the toon. i have done a complete reset to defaults and then a full uninstall and reinstall. It shows up fine on other toons. Is this a knows issue ?

  • #750

    There are no tank specs for Ovale yet.

  • #747

    i saw in a previous version that the tank specs were not implimented yet for any class since 5.0

  • #744

    after 2 hours of testing i can tell that it does the job and it's nice to know that there is a working alterative to destruction for dummies 

  • #743

    There are two major bugs currently in Ovale (tickets 156 & 159) that are causing many of the problems people are seeing when they use the addon.  I will make a new alpha release on this Friday with fixes for these two issues unless Sidoine has other plans for fixing them.  Please be patient while the fixes undergo code review.

  • #742

    When I play my frost DK Ovale works fine but my chat window is spammed with error codes. 

  • #741

    Sup man, how do I get ovale to work, I have uninstalled an reinstalled, even downloaded your script addon. Now I have noticed ingame when I do A spell check with ovale alot of the spell id's are different than the spellbook id's. If I do a restore to default code, it will work when I switch to bear form, but not cat form am I missing something are doing something wrong. Also when in game it shows up alot of info fo ovale sayin return path nill, can't find spell, or missing spell. even when i run the debug it comes back with all 0's. All it shows is savage roar an shred when trying to use. I been on the fluid druid website an seen leafkillers script, How would I put that into the addon, I even used the other addon that supposed to install scripts into this one but still no luck

    ManaPersent function is monitoring power bar (demonic fury for demo) along with mana bar, because of that it will give wrong results based on power bar values.
