I just downloaded the spreadsheet but cannot find the armory import option, can anyone help me please?
Someone reported this post for idiocy. I decided to see how tough it was to find the armory import option. I went to the first page of the thread, took a 20 second look at the Faq and downloaded the spreadsheet. This little gem jumped out at me:
Now that they are giving dwarves a mace specialization after patch 3.0, I was wondering how the proc of Syphon of the Nathrezim is implemented. Is the damage from the proc taken into account of the dps? Because it proc's quite often when I tried to skill up my mace-skill in the Blasted Lands.
EDIT: will the spreadsheet be updated at all for 3.0.2?
Now that the basic talents seem more stable, I've begun working on the talent page and the associated links to the formulations used in the spreadsheet. I hope to have it up to speed by the release of the new talents to live but that really depends on how extensive future changes are (necessitating going back and recoding things); whether I run into any hitches implementing new mechanics; and how much lead time we have before that happens. So the answer is yes.
In the process I've also been recoding some things so that they will be easier to update with patch changes. This might cause a delay in getting ready for the expansion, but should make future updates go much smoother and we know there are often more frequent patches and changes right after an expansion release.
As to the proc rate, the Syphon is currently modeled as a 1 PPM effect with no internal cooldown and is accounted for in the displayed DPS on the spreadsheet.
Now, I was performing four sessions of ~11 minutes each, with a cycle that included 3x Adrenaline Rush, and therefore somewhat increasing the value of AR due to removing one cooldown, but 75 DPS seems a bit too high to be caused by a one in three cooldowns (or, 4 in 12).
That's odd since I'm showing 1481 when inputting your information and optimizing. That's quite a bit closer to the 1511 and might possibly be covered by the extra AR uptime and random error.
For some reason I could not import, so had to change things by hand. The DPS does drop to about 1431 if I take AToL and set it to "none" to reflect the Riding Crop that shows up in your armory profile though. Do you have that sheet saved and can you check to see if it's a Riding Crop issue?
Wow, my fault. It was not exactly the Ashtongue Talisman, but the other trinket, to which I don't want to go more in detail, let's just say that instead of the Dragonspine Trophy I selected another trinket which begins with the same three letters and is... a bit older...
I don't wanna be stressing or so -- but how about the progress with the 3.0.2 sheet?
I'm almost hourly looking at http://rogue.raidcal.com/ -- still 126.96.36.199.
And that's the major question - if you are done with the new version - will I find it there?
Well, I started a new job beginning of October and they are still short necessary people. As a result, I've been working 55-70 hour weeks and haven't had any time to work on the spreadsheet since that time. I hope to find the time and the sooner my new job finds someone and I work normal hours, the more likely that will be.
There are some significant hurdles yet to overcome such as how to integrate some of the new talents in a reasonable way for cycles. Also, Envenom modeling hadn't been done since the last cycle overhaul.
I'm going to have to revise my estimate to the end of this year. I feel it is important that when a new version gets rolled out, that it is reasonably accurate. I have some ideas how I might accomplish this, but they will require time I do not currently have.
Edit: I have found out today that my job is closing down production for two weeks around the Christmas holidays. So hopefully that will be enough time to get an updated working version up before the New Year. Of course I wouldn't turn down help either...
