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.


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.

Tagging a 6.0.24 release.


Johnny C. Lam:
    - Warrior: Gladiator DPS prefers Battle Shout over Commanding Shout.
    - Warrior: Reverse order that Shouts are suggested.
    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

    i have whats probably a simple question about the druid rotation
    It seems to focus solely on being behind the target.

    what about fights where you are not able to be behind the target for one reason or another?

    I even tried the option that shows 2 abilities to use and it still regularly left me in situations that i was not able to get behind the target, or use any of the abilities it insisted i should be using.

    Is there any way in the options to set a different rotation to show in the second set to show abilities to use if you are not able to be behind the target?

    great add on btw i use it on my DK and i am regularly #1 in dps on my guild raids

    With the 4.2.2, if you uncheck Shred, it should ask to cast Mangle instead.

    Arcane priority works fine for me
  • #565
    Do you have a site where people can upload their configurations? The default version for Arcane Mage seems a bit buggy. Its stuck on Arcane Blast (even when I have a Missiles tick). Used to use this on my Rogue a year ago and it was amazing, nowadays I'm a little more disappointed, completely ignoring the suggestions.
  • #568
    It should ask to cast only Arcane Blast while Evocation is available. It is what you observe?
  • #570
    No, it does it even when Evocation is unavailable. It will only suggest Arcane Blast continously.
  • #571
    I assume that you still have an obsolete Ovale configuration file. Try to remove Ovale.lua from SavedVariable (or reset your profile).
  • #572
    I did what you said and also fresh reinstalled the addon with the same result.
  • #567
    If you look in the description there is a spot that starts "Please use the new forums.." in bold. Forums is a link, you can click on it to go there and look at scripts other people post which helps me sometimes.

    Might be just me but the frost mage rotation is acting really bizarre. Stuck on deep freeze without a proc. Casting frostfire bolt with no proc for it to be instant...etc. I can't find any frost rotation updates on any website to confirm any changes in the rotation. Checked the ovale formums as well and see no frost scripts there either. I'll keep poking at it to see if I can figure out what's wrong, but thought you should know in case others are having problems.
  • #566
    Okay, after messing around with simucraft for a while the rotation is actually correct. I changed the script slightly so it would stop getting stuck on deep freeze when I couldn't possibly cast it (rare but it happens that sometimes there is a second or so delay before it comes off cooldown...and also it now suggests the pet freeze to actually proc it rather than getting stuck on it). It seems to get stuck on frostfire bolt at times when icelance should be being cast (2 stacks of FoS) not sure how to fix that or why it's even happening but if you queue up spells one after the other it will skip over the icelance.

    I've been levelling frost from 75-78 recently and am finding myself constantly stuck on deep freeze with no proc. Simply highlighting a target (with show-when-have-focus enabled) usually gives deep freeze as a non-available starting point, especially when no other procs are active, such as entering combat fresh after a period afk.
  • #569
    That's strange. I did not test the frost mage script since 4.1, I will try to find the time to test it.
  • #559
    couple questions

    1. I've noticed a couple times the add on goes away when I'm not sure why. only 2 examples i can think of are the daily quest in deepholm when you are hopping from rock to rock and the boss in halls of origination where you can ride the camel. is there any way to get them to stay for that? the priorities should be the same.

    2. from what i read on elitist jerks the priorities on frost DK's should no longer use blood strike but its still showing up in the list, is that intended?
  • #560
    1. Disable the "hide in vehicle" option
    2. Blood strike should not appear at any time in any spec. Try to reset your profile, your may have a modified script.
