I, Robot. That’s Mister to you!
I have been following a thread on MMO-champion shaman boards about a new website featuring a RAWR type simulator tool in the web browser.
I decided to give it a try a few days ago and got some very interesting results on optomize. It was insisting on haste, haste, and more haste!
As a RAWR veteran, I knew
already that if a simulator gives out weird advice usually one should check with the parameters it’s been given. In the case of Rawr, for
me, it usually came down to length of fight and mana usage / regen settings being off.
Well I must admit, in this case, it probably was my mistake for not reading the directions enough. I think that in changing the haste soft cap I input “916” where the value being input should be in percentage (with decimals not %, the default is .13)
If you check the thread above you will see that there is quite a lot of theorycrafting going on discussing how it will handle resto shaman stat weights/ values. I tried it again today, set to optomize with default values, and I’m excited to try out the changes in gemming and reforging recommendations.
There is also a spirit cap (default is 2200) and I’m not exactly sure if that’s including DMC: Tsunami and 4-piece bonus or not. (updated: see bottom of post) All of my recommendations are to shed spirit from the gear and get more mastery and crit.
I can honestly say that I’m having zero problems on mana in 10n with my gear level (354 ilevel I think) and I even waste a metric ton of mana on blue circles that nobody stands in.
All in all, very positive review from me:
- I like most of all the settings for personalizing gear optomization, based on what you have access to.
- I’m also blown away by the community feedback and involvement by the devs of this website.
- They even have a forum on their website.
- They have been making steady improvements based on feedback.
