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.

The current release of Ovale provides default scripts for the following classes for Warlords of Draenor:

  • Death Knight: Blood, Frost, Unholy
  • Druid: Feral, Guardian, Restoration (Balance is NOT currently supported)
  • Hunter: Beast Mastery, Marksmanship, Survival
  • Mage: Arcane, Fire, Frost
  • Monk: Brewmaster, Windwalker
  • Paladin: Protection, Retribution
  • Priest: Shadow
  • Rogue: Assassination, Combat, Subtlety
  • Shaman: Elemental, Enhancement, Restoration
  • Warlock: Affliction, Demonology, Destruction
  • Warrior: Arms, Fury, Protection

Default scripts are 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

  • Tracks DoTs, buffs, debuffs, cooldowns, combo points, runes, mana -- everything that a player would need to decide what to do.
  • Adapts to your talent points and glyphs.
  • 100% configurable: everything is in an easy-to-understand script that you can modify and test in real-time without reloading your UI.
  • Compatible with the action icon skinning library Masque.
  • Use SpellFlashCore to flash abilities on action bars in addition, or as an alternative, to displaying the ability icons.

FAQ

Why does it not work for me?

Try to reset your Profile in the Ovale settings.

Why is the key binding displayed for an action wrong?

You may be running an action bar addon, e.g., Bartender4, etc., that does not use the Blizzard action bar frames.

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.

How do I make the spells flash on the action bar?

Simply install SpellFlashCore (included if you install SpellFlash) and Ovale will use it to flash the spell to cast on the action bar in addition to displaying the spell in the Ovale icon bar.

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

You need to reach level 10 and choose a specialization. However, be aware that the default Ovale scripts are tuned for max-level characters and you may be missing key abilities at low levels that are assumed to exist. If the default script is not working for you, you will need to find or write a script more appopriate for your character's level.

    Check for the spec-enhancing buff first before the raid buff so that we're
    not told to Shout back to back, overwriting the raid buff with the main
    buff.

    @wrpdndprsd + @venestine

    I was also affected by the affliction warlock behaviour you describe, I'm pretty sure its a script issues, however the latest change log references a fix to TicksRemain function which the script uses.

    Anyway at the time I didn't have a chance to take a proper look at the script, however there is waht looks like a very good script on the Ovale forums which IS useable and seems to work well.

    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

    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. :)
