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 6.2.13

THIS RELEASE REQUIRES A CLIENT RESTART.

Changes from version 6.2.12:

  • Update localized strings from CurseForge app from 2015-07-23.

  • Regenerate scripts based on SimulationCraft git master from 2015-07-23.

  • Merge branch 'simulationcraft'.

    Pull in changes from SimulationCraft git master from 2015-07-23.

  • Import Tier18M profiles from SimulationCraft git master from 2015-07-23.

  • Put all scripts for each class into a single, per-class Lua file.

    This makes it easier to update the addon without needing to restart the
    client to detect new files.

  • Ovale does not use AceLocale-3.0.

  • Skip "wait" actions with a constant "sec" modifier in SimC APLs.

    Ovale does not have the concept of "wait for N seconds before proceeding",
    so just ignore those lines in SimC APLs.

  • Don't use the same variable name back-to-back.

  • Import latest release.sh from curseforge-packager project.

  • Check for non-nil tables before referencing members.

  • Teach OvaleSimulationCraft about "sim.target" expressions.

    Ovale doesn't understand the concept of a priority target, so treat
    "sim.target=target" expressions as always true.

  • Update for patch 6.2 hotfixes up through 2015-07-20.

  • The spell databases have been updated for patch 6.2.

    Sorry if i'm just noobing it up but any help would be great and keep up the good work with this addon.
  • #36
    Please try 3.2.24 and tell me if it solves your problem. If so, does it ever ask you to cast Death Coil?
  • #44
    Yes no more errors with .24! It does ask me to Deathcoil too, so so far so good. Thanks for the help! It really cuts close on Pestilence but maybe that's just my timing. If i can provide anymore help let me know.
  • #45
    Yes, in some rare occurrence it does not ask to refresh the diseases with Pestilence and the glyph. I suspect that there may be no blood rune available at this time, but I did not play long enough to be sure. Somebody that knows the Death Knight better than me may tell me if that is a problem: should one blood rune be spared some time before the diseases expire? It may not worth it.
  • #32
    How do you add weapon enchants? There seems to be support for this according to the documentation but I must be doing something wrong. It is always showing that the enchant is not preset.

    Script Below

    Define(FLAMETHONG 8024)
    #Added WINDFURY to the defined spells (Tried both Rank 1 and Rank 8 spellids)
    Define(WINDFURY 8232)

    AddIcon
    {
    if WeaponEnchantExpires(WINDFURY mainhand 2) Spell(WINDFURY)
    if WeaponEnchantExpires(FLAMETHONG offhand 2) Spell(FLAMETHONG)

    # All of the below seems to work fine.
    if BuffPresent(MAELSTROMWEAPON stacks=5) Spell(LIGHTNINGBOLT)
    Spell(STORMSTRIKE)
    Spell(EARTHSHOCK)
    if ManaPercent(less 25) Spell(SHAMANISTICRAGE)
    if TotemExpires(fire) Spell(MAGMATOTEM)
    if BuffExpires(LIGHTNINGSHIELD 0) Spell(LIGHTNINGSHIELD)
    Spell(LAVALASH)
    }
  • #33
    You can not specify which weapon enchant expires. You should write this:
    if WeaponEnchantExpires(mainhand 2) Spell(WINDFURY)
    if WeaponEnchantExpires(offhand 2) Spell(FLAMETHONG)
  • #34
    That fixed the issue. Thanks for the help!
  • #25
    First off I want to say very nice addon!
    I have a few questions though.

    1. Would it be possible to make it show only "if has target" and taget is hostile and not dead? I don't really need to see what spells to cast on a friendly- or a dead- target.
    2. is it possible to get an icon that tells you what spell to cast after the next - icon 1 = cast now, icon 2 = cast next, 3 = fillers (for warriors heroic strike or cleave)?

    Also the icon that shows HS/Cleave always has the border shown, and there's a ? between the 2 first icons, what is that supposed to do?

    Thanks
  • #26
    1. I may do that in a future version. Thank you for the suggestion.
    2. I tried that (the option is still here in the appearence menu, check "Predictive (EXPERIMENTAL)"), but I found that the result was more confusing than useful. You may test it if you want, I could use some feedback.

    It is a feature to show the border of the HS/Cleave button even if there is nothing to cast. If thought it was weird if the button kept disappearing/appearing every two seconds. If a majority of people don't like that, I may change it.

    I don't know what you mean about the question mark, I don't have it. It is likely a bug. Did you change the default script? Could you show me a screenshot?
  • #28
    For the "Predictive" fuction you can see what I mean if you have the posibility to test CLCRet addon (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/clcret.aspx) for ret pallies, has some nice features, but yours is just so much cooler because it's usable for all classes.
  • #27
    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply

    I have tested the "Predictive (EXPERIMENTAL)" feature, and yeah it seems a bit more confusing than helpful. Maybe make both icons visible, so there are 2 icons at all times instead of the scrolling feature (a small icon for next skill and a normal sized icon for the skill you should use now?)

    Here's a screenshot of the ? I talked about (http://hellbound.apathia.dk/img/upload/WoWScrnShot_110109_113024.jpg). They turn red if I'm out of range of the target.

    As for the iconborder on cleave/hs - it seems a little odd that the border is there without anything to cast imo. Maybe you could change it so that the hs/cleave icon has it's own size-scroller, and make it possible to move it individualy from the other icons?
  • #29
    I will add the option to remove the borders.

    About the ?, it looks that it is the keyboard shortcut that is not displayed properly. I see that you use ButtonFacade. Which skin it is? And what addon do you use to move the icons?
