Rawr's Selection of Gems

Just a simple general question for which I cannot find a thread.  Does RAWR evaluate the attributes of a player, such as hit or crit, then select a specific gem as the best choice for that character given the existing gear?  In other words, and for example consider an Elemental Shaman, does RAWR sometimes pick an intellect gem or a hit gem depending on the player's hit points and other attributes?  Thanks for the response.

Yes.  The program selects what will be the highest DPS combination.  If you're below the hit cap, and gemming Hit will bring the most DPS, then it will gem hit, up until gemming something else becomes more valuable.  If gemming Int brings more DPS than Hit, then it will gem Int.

I also think you meant to say Hit Rating, or more accurately, chance to Hit.  Yes, it takes Chance to Hit and "other attributes" (in the case of an Ele Sham: Haste, Crit, SP, special enchants, talents, buffs, etc.) into account.
