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.

    The only explanation I can think of is that your rogue might be below level 10, in which case ovale wouldn't be working for that toon yet. Otherwise I'm not sure, I use ovale for my rogue, so I know it works with the class. You might try disabling other addons to see if it works when its the only addon running. 

  • #681

    Things I can think of with you being 13 Sub: You don't have backstab or hemo yet, which are your main fillers. I've leveled a Sub rogue since the lastest update back in May and if I remember correctly, I just had no suggestions show up until those skills were learned. It works perfectly fine for me raiding at 85, and nearly 100% certain it was working as I leveled.

  • #677

    Oddly enough the pictures show up when I am stealthed but after that is goes back to blank.

    EDIT: I dropped Sub to test out the other specs and they work, it is just Sub for me that is not working with ovale.

    Im higher than Level ten, I disabled all addons and it's still doing it. I'll try reinstalling it I guess.

    EDIT: Didnt work... Do you have any other ideas? Right at this moment I am a level 13 Sub Worgen Rogue. If that means anything.

    I'll take a look in the next day or so.

  • #668

    So  does this command "target.debuffTick(CORRUPTION)" calculates time between ticks from spell info that we must provide to addon (like example you have shown SpellInfo(CORRUPTION duration=18 tick=3)) and current haste (which is wrong method to calculate tick duration) or does it just pull this number from debuff tool-tip.

    Does commands like "castTime(SOULFIRE)" work this way too, or those can pull this info from tool-tip of appropriate spell?

  • #669

    All of the things that relate to spell times, either casting or the DoT tick, use the current value of haste.  For castTime() that is reasonably accurate for the decisions that have to be made, but for debuffTick(), it won't be quite right.  It would be nice to use the value of the haste when the DoT was applied, but unfortunately, there is no way to get that information from the WoW API after the fact from examining debuffs on the target.

  • #670

    Bah, then if addons cannot get accurate tick duration I am going to use lowest possible tick duration that i can find in those dot spreadsheets that can be found around (i think it is close to 1.5 sec)

    How do you turn unleash elements off? Its kind of waste if u have unleashed lightning. Typically Unleashed elemets should only be used:

    1) If you don't have unleashed lighting.

    2) You are casting wind shear and u have to use /stopcasting macro.

    3) While moving you weren't able to cast any spells and  if you cast unleash elemets + LvB you get 30% dmg boost. 

    Should move unleashed weapon icon to next frame where totem icon is. Its kinda annoying to see every time u move. 

    NOTE: Ignore about comment. I just realized i was using the old code and i had to reset my profile to update the shaman code. Can you please make versioning system to find out if ur using updated class code so i know when to reset.

    Just had to login and post a comment. I discovered this addon last night and it's fcuking fabulous. Its a great help for someone with many toons who wants to learn the necessary muscle memory for a given spec

    Kuso to its creator and my thanks also to Leaf for his equally awesome Feral scripts

    Is it possible to use proximity (with the default script) to automatically suggest using a spell (Such as Shadowflame for warlocks?)  You can do this pretty easily with LibRangeCheck 2.0, which this guy on the forums has done with the script I linked earlier ( http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/ovale/forum/warlock/29798-4-3-warlock-destruction-script/#p1 )  You wouldn't even really need the checkbox anymore since it's pretty much a no brainer part all three rotations as long as you are in range.

  • #667

    Yeh this could be usefull for all the classes.

  • #663

    I will fully admit i know nothing about making addons, though have to say i love this addon except for one aspect, though i have managed a work around for the issue and it pertains to how i run my prot DPS paladin, i had to modify the big text block to remove a couple spells from the list so if i did not have them active then ovale would not just say activate them, these include Righteous Fury (which i do not use unless for some reason in a group i need an aggro boost) and Seal of Truth (which although i use most the time if my mana gets low i flip to Seal of Insight for mana recovery)

    With all that said and not knowing how hard it would be to add this feature, and only saying it would be nice if you were able to, any chance of adding a set of options in the interface set to turn on and off some spells that a player like myself doesnt use all the time?

    Though will also admit that if this is not a possibility i do know how to manually removes spells from ovale personally.
