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.


  • 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.


How closely are the default scripts based on SimulationCraft?

The SimulationCraft APL language and the Ovale script language are functionally very similar and concepts from one can be translated into the other in a very direct and mechanical way. For all intents and purposes, the default scripts are the SimulationCraft APLs imported into the game and displayed visually.

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.

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.

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. 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.

Ovale Spell Priority 6.1.2

Changes from version 6.1.1:

  • Hunter: Fix spell ID of Kill Shot after gaining Enhanced Kill Shot perk.

Changes from version 6.1.0:

  • Druid: Update restoration script for WoD.

    • Properly detect Omen of Clarity if talented into Moment of Clarity.

    • Rejuvenation (Germination) is a Swiftmend-able HoT.

    • Add restrictions for casting Swiftmend on a target.

    • Wild Mushroom is a more expensive spell nowadays, so no longer maintain
      it as the top priority.

    • Use the correct Arcane Torrent (for when Blizzard decides to allow Blood
      Elf druids.

  • Regenerate scripts based on SimulationCraft profiles from release-610-02.

  • Merge branch 'simulationcraft'.

    Pull in changes from SimulationCraft release-610-02.

  • Only prefix the pet ability with the pet name if it's not "pet_<name>".

  • Simplify some SimulationCraft translations after aura ownership change.

    A pet-applied buff is now considered to belong to the player as well, so
    simplify some translations to drop "any=1" and handle Beast Cleave in a
    simpler way.

  • Import Tier17M profiles from SimulationCraft tag "release-610-02".

  • Consider auras applied by the player's pet to belong to the player, too.

    Fixes ticket 569 by @LunaEclipse.

  • Add requirement handlers to check for auras applied by anyone.

    The requirement handlers are:

    • buff_any
    • debuff_any
    • target_buff_any
    • target_debuff_any

    These check for buffs and debuffs on the player or the target that are
    cast by anyone, not restricted to the player.

  • Shaman: The spell IDs for Ascendance have changed in patch 6.1.

    Fixes ticket 571 by @Leafkillr.

  • Remove attempted loading of LibDispellable-1.0, which was removed.

    How about right now, for the beta?


  • #682

    I just installed this addon today and it's working wonderfully on my druid, warrior, priest, and hunter but I'm leveling a mage and it's level 81 at the moment and it's frost. The problem I'm having is that it's telling me to put up molten armor constantly and I play with mage armor to keep my mana up in dungeons or frost armor when I quest. I'm a frost mage too so it's not like I'm a fire mage and it's telling me to put up the respective armor for my talents. For some reason I can't click on it and have list open up on the side like I can with all of my other characters. I've checked all the settings and the "ignore mouse clicks" isn't checked. I can click the icons and they do the mouse down graphic, but nothing else happens. It's driving me nuts because no matter what spell I cast the molten armor doesn't change.

    You'll have to edit that part of the code yourself with something like:

    unless InCombat() if BuffExpires(MAGEARMOR 400) and BuffExpires(MOLTENARMOR 400) and BuffExpires(ICEARMOR 400) Spell(MAGEARMOR)

  • #679

    Installed this today and it works great, except that I can't move it at all.  The "Lcok Position" setting is not checked.

    With my new Rogue I just started I seem to only get the outline of the box showing up, but without the pictures suggesting which move I make. I get no error though and the addon seems to be up to date. It only seems to be my Rogue doing it.

    Any suggestions?

  • #675

    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.
