* Arcane or Dalaran Brilliance

* Burn
* Arcane Power
* Prismatic Crystal
* 2xSupernova
* Common (below)
* Arcane Blast spam

* Replenish
* Arcane Missiles if AM will expire before Evo completed
* Evocate

* Conserve
* 1 or 2 Supernova if mana < 94% and < 3xAM and sure to have 2xSN for AP
* Common
* Arcane Blast if mana > 93%
* Arcane Missiles if 4xAC and AM>0
* Arcane Barrage if 4xAC
* Arcane Blast filler

* Common
* Nether Tempest if 4xAC and buff expires < 3.6s
* Arcane Orb if AC < 2
* Presence of Mind (to buy milliseconds for Orb to hit)
* Mirror Images
* Arcane Missiles if 3xAM or expiring

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. Additionally, some cool downs are very specific in terms of the movement/static nature of a fight, upcoming mobs, etc and so cannot be reliably included.

The selection of what to display for Cooldowns in the mini icon rows is a personal thing. I have thrown in some ideas but you should really customise for your liking. It is very possible to show a cooldown and yet to exclude it from appearing in the main rotation icons. This would avoid you being nagged, for example, to blow a major cool down on trash and just prior to a boss fight. Enter "/wdw coo" from chat.

Notes Specific to the Arcane Mage Module
BURN commences when the Evo cooldown is below a threshold. The aim is to be down to 50% mana at exactly the time that Evo comes of CD.
Yup, impossible to predict so the module "learns" as it goes, starting at a low 15s. REPLENISH commences at 50% mana. Evo will be in queue position #1. Do it! CONSERVE occurs when Evo is on CD.

You may set the burn commencement / remaining Evo CD timer: Enter '/wdw sm burntimer=nn' in chat where 'nn' is the time.

You may set the mana threshold to trigger Evo: Enter '/wdw sm minmana=nn' in chat where 'nn' is a percentage.

You may turn on/off the "training": Enter '/wdw sm train=y' or '/wdw sm train=n'.

To check any of these enter '/wdw sm' in chat.

* 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.

It is all about the Cookies & Beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend".

See the Module "Train"

In chat enter '/wdw deb bt' to see a message each time the Evo timer is updated. It makes small changes each time, in the direction of the latest timing.

To cancel enter '/wdw deb 0'. That's a zero and not an Oh

v2.02 - Rewritten!

Finally. After the lamentable rush effort to get a rotation done for WoD (and before I moved house with no internet for 3 weeks) I found the time to get the job done properly.

The decision when to commence the BURN phase relies upon an internal timer, based upon the remaining time until Evo is off CD. Set to a low 15s iirc BUT it "learns" as you play. It will NEVER be the same due to the randomness of things.

The decision to commence Evo is at 50% mana.

YOU can set both of these manually and also cancel the auto "training" aspect too. See notes above.
