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.

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.

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.

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.

I like StatScore also, but it doesn't yet comply with some of the new class changes. Case in point: Hunters don't use mana any more, but StatScore scores high for items & gear with intellect and other stats affecting mana & spellcasting.
For this reason I was experimenting with Wowheadpoints, hoping to have a better indicator of gear suitability for my Hunter character, at least until StatScore is corrected.

Thank you.

Please note the changes to my previous post, below.

The weights for Paladin Protection and Retribution are identical. The Retribution one should look like this: Code: ["Retribution (DPS)"] = { weights = { DAMAGE_PER_SECOND = 470, MASTERY_RATING = 100, HIT_RATING = 100, STRENGTH = 80, EXPERTISE_RATING = 66, CRIT_RATING = 40, AGILITY = 32, HASTE_RATING = 30, SPELL_POWER = 9, }, }, But you might wanna double-check the weights, since it's really late here. __________________ Oh, the simulated horror!

Question/Suggestion:

This is great, and some how it's helped me be better at what my character does, but I guess I still don't fully understand it, so I'm not sure how it's doing this for me.

My question is, I know you state that it doesn't help you determine if a piece of equipment is better for your spec (e.g. DPS, Tank, Healing), or did I read it wrong?

When I was looking for an addon like this, basically what I was looking for was an addon that will help me learn what to look for on equipment so I will be able to determine easily which one is better for me (I'm DPS and I need gear that supports that but also doesn't forget the fact that I'm a Retribution Paladin or whatever class/spec I'm playing at that time). I would also like for it to be able to compare with what I have on, to help me determine if it's better for my class/roll and if so, why it's better, that way I can learn. If your addon doesn't do that, then what would you suggest I use, if what I'm request exists?

Thank you.

Also don't forget what she said:

It's true, they are listed completely the same. I wish I knew LUA, I would fix it for myself for now until an update is put out.

During levelling I found that the stats, in particular the weight given to mastery, completely throws off what gear is 'good' and what isn't, so I was discarding gear that was actually better for me to be healing with. I suggest picking up StatPoints, Pawn, or one of the other addons that do this and where the author has a bit more time to update it.

Don't do that... don't give up just because there are other addons that do it, and you are having trouble getting yours right...

I like how this one displays it. All you gotta do, is it get it working right and you'll be fine. For Paladins, I notice the Tank/DPS are ranked exactly the same and that's because there is something not set up right in the code. That should be able to be fixed. Then you could work on making sure that it really can do what you intended it to do, without problems. That way you won't be getting rid of gear that you actually could use.

I always wanted to use an addon that would teach me how to determine exactly what is best for my class/roll/spec with ease. Every addon you make is great, don't give up - you're awesome.

 01-02-11, 04:09 PM Cladhaire Salad!   Forum posts: 1935 File comments: 4624 Uploads: 18 It has absolutely nothing to do with that. I write addons because I use them. I no longer use this. I also do NOT have time right now to be supporting more addons. I don't need to be doing this one, so I'm going to stop.
