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 Ovale update so often?

Ovale tracks the latest SimulationCraft profiles for the latest raid content, and as action priority lists are updated in SimulationCraft, they are mirrored fairly quickly in the Ovale default scripts.

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 appropriate for your character's level.

Tagging as 6.0.34 release.

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

Johnny C. Lam:
    - Update frFR localization data.
    - Update default scripts to SimulationCraft git master from 2014-12-15.
    - Translate SimulationCraft's "gcd.remains" operand.
    - Enhance Name() script condition to accept a spell ID instead of a name.
    The name of the spell is then used for comparison to the unit name.
    - Add OvaleTotem module to keep state for player's totems.
    OvaleTotem tracks everything that is considered to be a totem in-game.
    This includes shaman totems, mage's Rune of Power and Prismatic Crystal,
    druid Wild Mushroom, and monk statues.  Casting a spell that summons a
    totem in the simulator will now actually summon the totem in the
    simulator.
    
    Modify script conditions to use the new state methods provided by
    OvaleTotem.  RuneOfPowerRemaining() is deprecated and the Totem*()
    conditions now directly take the ID of the spell that summons the totem.
    
    Decorate totem spell descriptions in the default scripts with information
    used by OvaleTotem.
    - Store the texture of the spell when scanning the spellbook.

    Hi,

    I am having a problem getting this to work with new patch, things were fine before today but whilst it shows as loaded I am now not getting the icons showing at all. I was getting a lua error but now that seems to have gone away so I am unable to copy it here for you to check. I have gone through the config menu and cannot see how I can make the icons show either in combat or out.

    I'm hoping this is just a patch issue and whether you will be updating this at all.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

  • #700

    thanks alot jlam for this awsome addon rly love it mate <3 

    keep up the good work my dear sir and i wish that there will be update for it :-D

  • #699

    How does http://wowdps.com/ works? What did you have in mind when you wrote this "Simply paste the full Simulationcraft profile". Do we need to open those ".simc" files in notepad and copy paste its content in that first field on http://wowdps.com/?. When i dod that I get this message " Une erreur s'est produite lors du traitement de votre demande."

  • #705

    Yes, it is how it should work. There might be bugs.

  • #696

    Had to test this because the addon I was using for rotation advice won't be updated anymore. I do like it after spending a few hours getting it to look and feel like my old one :) Just one problem, this addon tells me to use Drain Life and cast Shadowbolt only when it procs for instant cast, but the old addon + my guild mates tell me I should be casting Shadowbolt. So now I'm confused about what I really shoud use My warlock is only lvl 80 so does that have anything to do with the rotation?

  • #697

    If you don't have the Bane talent, it is correct to use Drain Life.

  • #693

    Authors of the simulationcraft have introduced new strings in their code that are not yet supported by ovale, like multiplication of time intervals (target.time_to_die*30) or count of dot ticks that are left (ticks_remain+1<n_ticks) or duration of whole dot effect with haste.

    With new ability that warlocks get at lvl90 http://mop.wowhead.com/spell=131973/pandemic this new functions will be needed.
