I've been playing with the batch tools a bit and have a few questions. So far I have made a druid and added some gear (the best pre-heroic gear) for kitty DPS. Then I switched the model to bear and added the best pre-heroic bear gear.
I optimised for bear and saved that as "testbear" then optimised for cat and saved that as "testcat". Then I opened the batch tools and clicked on the first "..." box and loaded "testcat"
then on the next line I loaded "testbear".
I then did a progressive optimise and it seemed to work well - some of the tanking gear was gemmed/enchanted for DPS as it worked out better than the next best item which is good because I wanted the best kitty gear and then to make a tank set from the rest.
Now, the questions :-
1) Is there somewhere I can get more info on these tools and what they all do because I can only kind of work out what I am doing - it's not very user friendly.
2) If I then got a couple of upgrades, would I need to mark them available in both the testkitty AND the testbear profiles? Or is there a way I can use the one profile to optimise for both bear and cat?
3) If I was using it for a different tank, say DK, how do I tell it to optimise with the condition that chance to be crit <0? Does it just use the most recent optimise setting for that profile? Is there an easy way to tell which conditions
it is optimising for in the Batch tools screen?
The more I play with it the more i'm keen to get it going. My druid, priest, DK & shammy are all 80 and have duel specs and so far I have been switching between specs and have been marking items with the blue diamond. But each time I get
a new item I optimise for the main spec then have to change all the blue diamonds to that gear and remark some of the others back to green diamonds etc.... The batch tools will save heaps of time :)
With just a little bit more info, i'm sure many more people would use it as well. Much like the filter system - a page showing the syntax of the commands in the filter system would be good (apologies if it already exists) - I worked it out by examining
the in-built filters and copying them.
