Version: v40000-0.0.4

This addon adds stat weight calculations to item tooltips, based on the stat weights provided by Wowhead.com. This allows you, for any given spec, to compare two items to see which one is 'better' for your character.

Currently these stats make no adjustments for reforging or sockets, so you'l need to make those comparisons yourself, although it's possibly that we can automate this in the future.

The stats for individual specs are not meant to be compared to each other, you can't use them to determine if an item is a 'Tanking' item or a 'Casting' item.. the scales just aren't comparable like that. What you can do is use it to compare two items to see if one if better for a given spec, which is the purpose.

The Wowhead points were displayed in the tooltips, so I don't know what went wrong.

Further troubleshooting seems to indicate that any AddOn I have enabled that modifies the tooltip results in errors like this when Wowheadpoints is also enabled. When Wowheadpoints is not enabled I have none of the errors or any problems with the other AddOns. If I disable RatingBuster, one of the AddOns mentioned in the above error, I see various different errors. If you would like to see some of those errors, I can post them. Thank you.

Please read the addon description. This addon is not telling you whether gear is resto or balance or feral.. that should be blatantly obvious to you as someone who has played the class. What it does allow you to do is compare to different pieces of gear and determine which is better for a given spec. That's it, and it works properly for that.

The reason your gear has such a high 'tanking' score is because stamina is an incredibly highly weighted stat for tanking druids, and most of the ilevel 251+ gear has a significant amount of stamina on it, boosting the store. Since stamina isn't relevant to resto/balance, they don't get this same
'bonus', hence why the tanking scores are higher than all the others.

It may be useful to people who don't need everything Pawn has to offer, but wants to compare two or more items to see what is better. __________________ "There's only one thing that I know how to do well and I've often been told that you only can do what you know how to do well, and that's be you-- be what you're like-- be like yourself.

 11-28-10, 10:27 AM redwinelvr A Kobold Labourer Forum posts: 0 File comments: 7 Uploads: 0 Maybe this is redundant with Pawn? I understand the numbers are slightly different, but the PAWN addon is already using the scales from wowhead by default. Perhaps you could work with that author to offer this value in PAWN as well. They are intended to do the exact same thing and already handle gem slots.
