Actually, Astrylian, I'm glad that this luser posted this discussion in this section. This is a fine place to announce once and for all:
IF MOONKIN SHOWS CRIT AS BETTER THAN HASTE, YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF MANA.
Now will everybody STOP with the "OMG Rawr sucks because it's overvaluing crit when we all know haste is better" crap. I'm sick and tired of everyone trashing my hard work without taking 15 seconds to figure out how the model actually works.
However the initial poster suggested that Wrathcalcs was showing a very different result, and I can only assume it is taking mana into account as well so SOMETHING is wrong. As you know dopefish my main is now a Moonkin so I am taking a keen interest in
Moonkin theorycraft. I fully believe that you have put a lot of work into the model and are sure its accurate. However if two different methods of calculating dps are giving two different results then one of them must have a bug.
It is my plan to spend time this weekend investigating both models and doing in game testing to see if I can determine where the differences lie. I did briefly note for instance that my crit in Rawr and my crit in game is out by 20 crit rating, however was
called to join heroic so didn't finish my analysis enough to know if it was just me or something wrong with the model.
If there are specific things I can assist with testing please let me know I'm a very experienced theorycrafter having previously worked on the Rawr.Enhance model and Enhsim the Enhancement Simulator. My focus now is on the Addon but naturally since Moonkin
is my main I want to ensure if I can do anything to make it better I will. Treat me as a willing guinea pig that can try out stuff and test things whilst you do the coding.
Oh and perhaps a Warning in RED on the display page ie: change the OOM time display to be RED if its less than the combat time and add a tooltip. Something like "You will run out of mana during the fight. Gearing results will be heavily skewed towards
getting more mana". Then you wont need to rage at "lusers" and get out your trusty 2x4 to "re-educate" them ;)
