Being fairly new into the world of simcraft I'm stumbling on some problems that are probably really easy to avoid. When I do a QuickDPS test how exactly is the expertise capped calculated? I can tell from the OP it's a pretty difficult calculation, but I can't seem to understand it properly. For example, I run a DW Frost setup, if I run a setup with 11 expertise (+5 from TS) I get more dps then if I run a setup with 21 expertise (+5) so that means the cap. How exactly does this work? Surely not being capped shouldn't grant more dps then actually being expertise capped.. The 16 expertise setup runs with 277 Winding Sheet, if I switch it out for Might of the Ocean Serpent + an expertise Dragon Eye gem I lose quite some dps while being expertise capped.
I'm sorry if this been asked before, but I'd love to hear what I'm overlooking here.
By changing Winding Sheet(H) and a 32 Strength gem to a Might of the Ocean and a 32 expertise gem you lose 55 STR, 68 Crit and 60 Haste to gain 77 Exp and 65 ArP. I'm not surprise that you lose some dps on the road. Not being caped is a dps loss, taking some gear of the previous tier to reach it may be a superior loss.
My tip would be to generate EP value of your character and run the Zerack's DK Gear Optimizer (available in the DK forum) it will calculate for you all possible combination and give you the result of how you should equip to reach the best dps.
I think I found a bug with the Silverlight version. My browser froze up when I tried to get EP with the generator while using Firefox. Then when I tried again using Chrome a weird puzzle piece popped up.
Also, gargoyle wasn't showing up in the breakdown when I was simulating my unholy dps. Bone Shield isn't being properly refreshed by the sim also according to the report.
I have a problem with the Silverlight version not entirely showing on my screen. My screen resolution is 1024 x 768 so I'm sure that's the reason, but I just thought I'd chime in and let you know that it makes it a little hard to use when any option at the very top or very bottom of the UI are either unable to be read or clicked. I can't change tabs, for instance.
Excuse me. I was finally able to run the simulator with my DK, but I have a few questions; please do not infract me, I've been tying to figure ths out by self but haventbeen able to.
At the OP, it mentions I need to ill iallhe stats from my DK, but I was able to load him directly from the armory. Would this affect the results at all? I was able to get the combat log, but I wasn't able to get the EP's for my character. I clicked on start EP a few times and inlly gave u after5 minutesor so Does it take longer than that to get them or am I doing something wrong? This is what my simulator showed:
