FaceShooter  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.2
by: Crowfeather, Celetaras
FaceShooter is a shot recommendation addon for hunters.

Based on your resources like cooldowns and focus it tries to recommend which spell should be to cast next.
It is a complete rewrite of my former version of FaceShooter (which is broken as of 4.0.1). It doesn't include all of the original addons features yet but I'm planning on including them later on.

NEWS:
I've updated FaceShooter for 5.0.4 since it seemed like there weren't that many changes to our rotation. That being said, I'll propably not maintain this Addon much longer. So if someone else feels like taking over, please let me know. Otherwise you might try Spellflash in addition to one of the hunter modules or some other alternative Addon instead.
1.0.0
- complete rewrite of FaceShooter for Cataclysm (WoW 4.x)
- utilizes Ace3

1.0.1
- inclusion of ttl module
- added some new options and restructured the whole menu in a clearer way

1.0.2
- finally fixed the MM rotation

1.0.3
- fixed the Serpent Sting bug

1.0.4
- fixed some BM rotation bugs
- fixed a bug with hiding/deactivating the TTL module
- added more options for AimS usage with and w/o Careful Aim

1.0.4c
- just some typos
- fixed another bug that prevented Arcane Shot from beeing suggested most of the time

1.0.4d
- upated the TOC for 4.2 and changed Careful Aim threshold to 90%

1.0.4e
- fixed focus regen calculations (ISS and Hunting Party not affecting it)

1.0.5b
- added T13 2pc bonus detection and changed focus regen accordingly
- some more small focus regen fixes

1.0.6
- fixed a bug that caused SS to be suggested as SV
- added an option to use KC as focus dump during LnL

1.0.7c
- changed AimS breakpoint definition from haste to casttime
- yet some more minor fixes to focus calculation

1.0.8
- changed LnL behavior to allow for two consecutive ES
- added an option to foce AS instead of AimS if 4pT13 bonus is available and off ICD (110s)

1.1.0
- quick & dirty update for 5.0.4 compatibilty

1.1.1
- Added support Dire Beast, A Murder of Crows, Blink Strike and Lynx Rush
- Some more fine tuning, bug fixing and testing (even as BM!)

Consider GCD in the suggestion

Could you please make the addon to suggest the shot that will be the best when GCD is ready, but start suggesting it when the GCD is still cooling?

Now: for example just fired a shot, GCD is 1.5, remaining CD on aimed is 1.4, FS keeps suggesting steady for almost complete GCD duration except the last 0.1

What I would like:
1) simple approach: calculate what shots will be ready when GCD is ready and base the suggestion on that
2) smart approach: consider also shots that will have less then one GCD left when current GCD completes, calculate dps lost by waiting for each and suggest the best of available and close-to-available, for ex. just fired a shot, GCD is 1.5, CD on kill is 1.6, start suggesting kill

Noted and taken under consideration.
Though as I said before I didnīt even get to fix some more glaring issues yet so it will have to wait.

Also I originally didnīt want to use the combatlog on purpose to save resources. It just felt like a lot of overhead to listen to and parse all combatlog messages just to catch the few important ones while thereīre events for just those. Now with the dynamic priorizing in place I guess itīs worth reconsidering this stance because not only could I use it as the means to find out about immunities but also in a more general way to compare the expected shot damage with the actual one and apply adjustments if neccessary (this would also be a great way to find out about miscalculations).

Couple bugs and a suggestion

Loving the addon, but I've found a couple bugs (mostly minor) and have a couple suggestions.

1) /fs aspects brings up help... 3/5 of the lines, though mention the sniper frame, not aspect frame.
2) Lines 703 and 712: When outputting the current aspect min/max thresholds, you're outputting the shot frame alpha, instead.

Suggestions:
1) Monitor the combat log for full immunes on Serpent Sting and Explosive Shot (as well as others, if appropriate). If they are detected as being immune, don't suggest the shot. (Maybe with a warning somewhere about why it's doing that.)
2) Allow a user specified minimum TTL for suggesting hunter's mark. I agree with your reasoning on suggesting it on trash, but if the user can specify that fights under, say, 20 seconds should ignore HM, then it won't suggest it in those cases.
3) More difficult, but helpful: When a unit enters or leaves the raid, check to see if there's any other Hunters. If so, check their talents (if possible) to determine if any of them are MM and have IHM and/or glyphed HM. If so, don't suggest it to the player unless that Hunter dies. To make the scanning part easier (since I assume they have to be in range), maybe make it a manual option (/fs scan).

Yeah, I'm a neat freak when it comes to my UI. Other than that, keep up the good work!
Iīm sorry for not having updated the AddOn for quite some time now. I didnīt forget about it but Iīm still kind of busy at the moment. Iīll try to find some time to implement the requested option to turn off arcane shot recommendation and include 2T9 set bonus recognition though. Stay tuned.

My guess is that, for longer fights you probably wouldn't trust FS, cause of the lack of mana and viper calculations.
Yes, it is based solely on damage calculations for the next shot and that is a problem in the case of Arcane with MM ArP. Even if it's calculated to be higher in damage than Steady firing it is still a bad choice because you loose a chance to gain ISS and because you might eat ISS, if it already procced.
Truth be told, however, is that with MM ArP setup things get much closer to actual rotation - Chi->Aim->SSx4. This, of course, is without Chimera/Aimed glyphs. Still, I'd love to have an option to completely turn Arcane off.

So from what I have seen the question seems to be .. what is more accurate? The agreed upon prioritization for arp mm, Srp,Chim,SSx4 OR FS using it's calculations and firing Arcane. and if so does this take in account using more mana aka viper sooner.. arp is a different beast to model

I guess at that time, the Arcane shot makes enough damage to be recommended.

This one is great!
Keep up the good work.
Some glitches though, as it disappear in battlegrounds and some instances.
But i really like the setup, so don't give up.

The only thing I could think about from the top of my head beside the wrong class would be the level. Is your toon level 80? If not thatīs the reason for FS not working.
