I'm still figuring it all out and I'm about positive I don't have a lot of things configured properly, but I do notice that a lot of the items currently only on PTR (seemingly about to be Live according to MMO-Champ) don't load to PTR when using the "Open in Wowhead" option. They load to the live website and get an error, of course.
Just kind of annoying to manually enter in the PTR stuff.
Also, I keep getting errors when trying to update the item database from Wowhead.
I noticed in this thread you had said something about the Deadly Glad libram being properly assessed in this version, but I had to manually add both it and the Venture Co Libram. Loading from the PTR worked, but for the Venture Co Libram I had to manually change the DS Crit to DS damage, anyway.
Does Rawr load from PTR Wowhead as well as Live or only live when using the Update Item Cache option? It seems like it works when adding items from ptr manually in the item options.
I'm having a little trouble with the new rotation options and was hoping someone could direct me as to how to make it as accurate as possible (or if it's already accurate as it can be).
I'm thinking it's possible rotations could change slightly depending on the set of gear, but can't imagine that it would be too different without being completely in spell damage gear or something. Maybe Libram dependent to some extent?
Regardless of whether I choose Undead or Humanoid/Elemental for the target, Crusader Strike > Judgement > HoW > DS > Exorcism > Consecrate seems to give me the best DPS in Ulduar gear (the ones in the item database at least) with the Deadly Glad Libram of Fortitude. It doesn't seem to matter if either Judgement or HoW comes first.
Also, does the Optimizer change rotations at all?
I don't seem to see a DPS increase with spell crit (Winter's Chill, Moonkin Form, probably Focus Magic, too). Wondering if Exorcism works with melee crit now, instead.
Is there a chance you could add Holy Wrath into the rotation? I rarely work it in, but somewhat often everything but HW is on CD.
And this is probably not the right topic, but I'd prefer to just ask real quick if Avoidance and Mitigation could be separated in the Prot module.
Thanks for making such a great tool, guys!
1st edit: Optimizer is seemingly inable to equip the best set of gear with my current options. The gearset I've found is 6726 DPS in a 5 minute fight with the rotation I said above and .05 wait. Optimizer is only finding a maximum of ~6670.
I noticed you had mentioned something about expertise and hit changes and wondering if that has anything to do with it.
Loading item data from PTR Wowhead isn't perfect, but it was mainly a stopgap solution for while the patch was on PTRs, and wasn't fully implemented and tested. The patch is coming out today, so it shouldn't matter anymore anyway.
It is possible for the best rotation to change with gear, which is the reason there is a rotation simulator. No, the optimizer doesn't change the rotation at all. One thing I want to add in the future is to be able to define multiple rotations, and compute how much dps they each do and use the highest one.
If spell crit is having no value, that means you are fighting against a demon/undead mob which your only spell has a 100% crit rate by default.
I do no work on the prot module anymore, so this isn't to place to talk about that. Your best bet would to be to go over to the Rawr Codeplex Discussions
For the item set you said is higher then the optimizer found, are you sure every item that you are using is marked as available? If so, please post the issue in the main Rawr EJ thread, or over at Codeplex. Remember to ALWAYS
include character files when reporting possible issues, we can do MUCH more to help you when you do.
