WowheadPoints
Version: v40000-0.0.4
by: Cladhaire [More]
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.

WowheadPoints - nicer, simpler

I've been trying Pawn side by side with WowheadPoints for a while, and it's WowheadPoints that I use.

Granted, the little indicators Pawn puts in the tooltips ARE nice, especially in an instance, but I prefer the way I get info for all specs at once. That feature is especially important on my druid, where I keep several sets for versatility.

The other alternative that you mention, StatPoints, I have been unable to locate.

That's odd, I seem to be unable to find it now as well.. I wonder what the hell happened to it. Someone sent me updates stats for all specs, but I'm not sure the weights are final, some seem a bit weird. I won't be able to do much with it until tomorrow.. probably. I have a huge deadline next Monday and I've been working non-stop on it.

Yup, that was me

And, like I wrote, some of them sure do look wierd. There's a forum for discussing weights at wowhead, and it looks like they use what they get from EJ without critique. EJ may be fine for endgame, but for leveling, their weights are somewhat counterproductive. And not taking attack power in consideration on a rogue, that is plain wrong.

There are a few lines that you need to look at. They all have comments.

How to let people maintain their own weights

This is the concept for how people can maintain their own weights for WowheadPoints. Weights defined in this way will overrule the default values in WowheadPoints. You can simply disable the addon, if you want to use the original values.

Please note, that I haven't had the time to test this, but I've used same concept with success for ShotGlass Raid Frames auras. When I've had time to test it, soon I hope, I'll put it up as an optional file for WowheadPoints.

Edit: of course it puts up an error. local Weights is nil. I'll look at it, when I get the time - I'm a bit busy in my head

First make a new addon folder called WowheadPoints_rogue, then create two new files in the new folder:

WowheadPoints_rogue.toc
Code:
## Interface: 40000
## Title: WowheadPoints: External rogue weightings
## Notes: Overrule the default rogue weightings for WowheadPoints
## Author: PingHansen 
## Version: 0.1
## Dependencies: WowheadPoints

WowheadPoints_rogue.lua
WowheadPoints_rogue.lua
Code:
	
	local Weights = WowheadPoints.info

        -- Rogue weights...
	Weights[ROGUE] = {
        ["Assassination"] = {
            weights = {
                DAMAGE_PER_SECOND = 100, -- melee
                AGILITY = 100,
                HIT_RATING = 67,
                ATTACK_POWER = 57, -- Estimate, missing in EJ values
                MASTERY_RATING = 50,
                HASTE_RATING = 46,
                EXPERTISE_RATING = 42,
                CRIT_RATING = 35,
            },
        },
        ["Combat"] = {
            weights = {
                DAMAGE_PER_SECOND = 100, -- melee
                AGILITY = 100,
                HIT_RATING = 70,
                EXPERTISE_RATING = 59,
                ATTACK_POWER = 57, -- Estimate, missing in EJ values
                HASTE_RATING = 56,
                CRIT_RATING = 35,
                MASTERY_RATING = 33,
            },
        },
        ["Subtlety"] = {
            weights = {
                DAMAGE_PER_SECOND = 100, -- melee
                AGILITY = 100,
                ATTACK_POWER = 57, -- Estimate, missing in EJ values
                HIT_RATING = 40,
                HASTE_RATING = 37,
                EXPERTISE_RATING = 33,
                CRIT_RATING = 31,
                MASTERY_RATING = 20,
            },
        },
    },

WeightsWatcher

Since Cladhaire needs a bit of well deserved rest from maintaining too many addons, an alternative to WowheadPoints could be WeightsWatcher
