my only issues with Ask MrRobot are:
1) The stat priority they were showing me for my demo lock, was different than I saw here. Provided both were different from Noxxic's as well....so I'm kinda confused as to which is right. I'm unfortunately not very good when it comes to SimCraft =/
2) They try to tell me that some of my BiS gear (from the list here and on EJ) gear actually isn't BiS.
1. askmrrobot is set up to optimise lvl 90 chars. The guide here is for lvl 85 (until MoP is released, then the guides will be changed to stat prio for lvl 90)
2. BiS is an evil thing. You need to remember that a 'Best in Slot' list is only valid if you have EVERY item on the list. If you are one item short, then, the chances are that the list will change for you. Heres an example of how this works:
Lets say you are one item short of the BiS : Bracers. The Bracers you have dont have the same stats as the BiS item (D'UH).
The BiS list NEEDS those bracers in order to hit certain break points (lets say Haste). Due to the fact that you do NOT hit the haste break point because of your one item difference from the BiS list, the BiS list is no longer valid and askmrrobotwill make a different suggestion for your items.
If you click on an item in askmrrobot, you see the 'BiS list' There are 2 choices here: Absolute and relative ranking. The Absolute ranking demands that you have every single item in the list. NO exceptions. The relative ranking means that it is highlighting the BiS item on that particular slot for your CURRENT gear.
Tier Gloves may be ranked as BiS for your class, but your current gear may mean that an out-of-tier item is best for you RIGHT NOW due to the stats it can provide,
I know this is counter-intuitive. People automatically assume that having an item that is classed as BiS means that they cant improve on it. This is simply not true. An item that is classed as BiS can actually be WORSE for you than another item simply because it lacks the stats you need right now.
