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

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 6.2.14

Changes from version 6.2.13:

  • Death Knight: Suggest Blood Tap in the main icon for all specs.

    Macroing Blood Tap into abilities is not proper playstyle if using Ovale
    since Ovale will tell you when it is appropriate to use Blood Tap and when
    you should pool your Blood Charges. Show Blood Tap in the main icon so
    that its use is more explicit.

  • Shaman: Restoration improvements with Riptide and High Tide.

    Keep Riptide rolling on the raid and take advantage of High Tide to cast
    Chain Heal for maximum effectiveness.

  • Regenerate scripts based on SimulationCraft git master from 2015-08-27.

  • Druid: Move Mangle higher in Guardian APL for snap threat generation.

    Using SimulationCraft 620-02, this modification simmed as slightly higher
    TMI-6, but with measurably higher rage-per-second, HPS, and DPS.

  • Merge branch 'simulationcraft'.

    Pull in changes from SimulationCraft git master from 2015-08-27.

  • Import Tier18M profiles from SimulationCraft git master from 2015-08-27.

  • Fix the default script choice for protection paladins.

    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."

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

    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.

    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.
