A DPS maximiser. Displays a sequence of icons from left to right, representing the order in which you should use your abilities so that maximum DPS may be achieved. You 'plug in' modules for your class/specialisation into a single AddOn, ensuring a consistent and familiar interface across the range of your characters.

General Rotation Notes
Sometimes, if you are unable to follow the rotation closely, certain abilities will just not be suggested in the queue. This is probably because preconditions to establish optimal use of the ability were not met.
(It is possible to exclude abilities from a rotation, and yet still display their CD/availability.)
Notes Specific to the Arcane Mage Module
The module is very good at calculating when to use Alter Time.
The module ships with a few rotations. A rotation called 'Single' differs from the 'Levelling' rotation due to including the Bomb talents and Mana Gem logic. A rotation called 'Alternative' is more in tune with the early days of the Cataclysm expansion but it might work for some players. I regard it as rather inferior to 'Single'.
* Alter Time *
The rotation called 'Alter Time' is basically 'Single' with AT logic added. It waits for the right time to cast AT, in terms of optimising your personal DPS. In order to fit in with the wishes of your raid leader it should be noted that AT does not have to be cast immediately it appears with WDW so you can safely cast Arcane Blast for a short while yet.
* Brilliance Buff *
Dalaran Brilliance / Arcane Brilliance bring a +10% Spell Power buff and +5% Crit buff to groups. This is better than a Shaman's Burning Wrath buff and does NOT overwrite the +10% Stamina of a Warlock's Dark Intent. If a BM Hunter is present then it shouldn't be choosing a pet to give the Still Water buff. Similar logic with respect to Crit buffs such as LotWT, LotP, FH, etc. Thus: Always cast AB/DB if it is not present (on yourself - to save checking everyone).
I encourage others to suggest their own ideas, perhaps even upload your own module if you have some LUA skills. I am happy to assist.
