I'm not an admin or a developer or a programmer on this app and I can understand how hard it would be to write something like this so please don't anybody look at this as a complaint about the team working on it.
That being said, if you are frustrated with the current version of Rawr's gear optimizations I would suggested finding and download 2.2.16.
The downside to this is that when you get new gear nine out of ten times you'll have to add it to rawr and the upgrade list is pretty worthless. That being said,
something got changed with the release of 2.2.17 regarding the way the warlock module values hit,spell power, haste, spirit, and crit. The new versions are still good about hit caps but it still makes mistakes , sometimes recommending greens
and blues as opposed to better and more appropriate gear.
This was really bad in 2.2.17 - 2.2.19.
I do think many improvements have been made to the app and to the warlock module in 2.2.20, however whatever change that was made for 2.2.17 regarding the way gear's dps score is evaluated has been off and I would advocate to anyone working on the lock module
to take a look at 2.2.16's method and work off of that one.
With the newer versions, ive followed the recommended fixes...Ive altered the latency settings in order to cause haste to have a higher worth, Ive tried re-downloading my toon from the armory and re-adding all my non equipped gear and the results are still
wonky. Besides if I have to lie to RAWR and tell it I have 300ms latency when I only have 100, what other adverse effect is this causing to the gear optimizations?
It seems like even 2.2.20's optimization does handle hit caps strangely though, as if its so determined to not go over the hit cap. Heres the scenario I'm envisioning...
lets say you're 30 points away from hit cap and rawr is decideing between two items.
item #1 has +32 hit and 50 spell power
item #2 has +64 hit and 80 spell power.
Rawr will choose item #1. As if every point over the hit cap causes the item to be devalued despite the benefits of the spell power.
The only way Ive found to keep the newer versions of RAWR from making goofy choices is to eliminate those bad choices and that defeats the purpose of the gear optimizer alltogether. I use Rawr, combined with the new gear outfitter option from within
WoW to make multiple gearsets depending on the kind of content Im grinding. so, I have a set for level 83, level 82, and level 80. So I do have a lot of gear in my inventory that I would never use for a raid but could be beneficial when running
lower content. My point is that just deleting gear from rawr isnt an option for me.
