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.

    As of introduction of new talent system there is option to do just that, you need to put mastery=1 or 2 or 3 for respective talent specs (same order as one in your talent ui) and only that part of code will work.

    Dunno what script are you using but this is already implemented in every default script.
  • #586
    Very late reply, but thanks! I've been using scripts from theorycrafters and didn't really understand anything in the scripts till you pointed that out.
  • #580
    Hi, I wonder if it would be possible to have an option for auto-switching profiles based on the spec you're currently in?
  • #576
    Is it possible to use this as condition "TargetInRange(melee yes)"

    I whated to integrate warlock's spell Shadowflame into the code but this spell has 10yard range, and it doesn't have range check like other spells, so I cannot use "TargetInRange(Shadowflame yes)". I was thinking of using next closest thing, to have it shown only when I am in melee range.
  • #577
    Try: TargetInRange(SAP)
    which has a 0-10 yard range

    also put: Define(SAP 6770)
    in the beginning where all of your other spells are
  • #578
    It doesn't seam logical to me that rogue ability will work in warlock script, but it doesn't heart to try this.

    There must be the way to make condition for any range as RangeDisplay addon already shows this things for every class.
  • #579
    Sap cannot be used for this, I am still searching for solution
  • #591
    I did not find a solution myself.
  • #575
    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.
  • #573
    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).
