Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.0!

I don't know if I should do rip or FB first. I'm leaning towards rip. I agree with aggixx but I think this depends on your choice of trinkets and gear. For example, if you have a crit/haste/mastery proc, FB-ing first is never going to work. But if you're Crit/Multistrike geared with a long Agility ...

Re: Challenge Mode gear

While I don't have any golds yet (haven't legitimately tried) and have only run each CM a few times, I feel pretty competitive with a complete Crit/Mastery set. I don't have any experience going Guardian for trash but I don't foresee any problem completing them as Cat. I think the key is just having...

Re: Edgy/Raffy's Catus Thread (Not 6.0 Ready Yet)

Thanks for the interest. I got pretty burned out trying to get everything ready before 6.0. Rewriting everything was a mistake as well as trying to support more specs. Additionally, the existing Catus application has a lot of polish, making all my intermediate work feel like crap in comparison. The ...

Re: A Note on Challenge Modes

Same as aggixx, I run CW/DoC/BT and heal as if I'm a mini-healer (with 1/3-1/2 throughput of the normal healer.) Our healing is awesome and so much more interesting than blindly dumping HT's into myself. I don't think CoS is worth it for Soothe, but Soothe is very helpful and definitely should be us...

Re: Edgy/Raffy's Catus Thread (Not 6.0 Ready Yet)

Java 8 has a new JS runtime called Nashorn and I've been experimenting with it as the foundation for the Catus APL. The obvious benefit would be: I don't have to implement a parser and the script writer would have full access to the Javascript language. The WoD APL is much much simpler than the MoP ...

Can you guys upload/link-to some of the latest Simc sim result files? I'm updating my code that parses the simc APL so I can parse your APL and begin testing Catus and look for differences.

Apparatus 1.0 is pretty much done feature-wise but there's still a bunch of UI polish to go. I'm currently working on the stat weights stuff and playing with the dynamic Catus integration. For example, if you have both Apparatus and Catus open, you can use Catus for simulation settings and Apparatus...

Re: WoD Pre-Raid BiS List

IMO, a way to think about BiS lists is something like: there's an actual list of base items that are considered BiS (Item BiS), and then there's an ideal variant of each of those items (Ultra BiS). There's also non-BiS items that get great rolls, like a Haste/Versa (or w/e) item with WF/Socket/Speed...

I put up a github project for WarKit although it still needs a ton of documentation, a release jar, and the WarExport database file (which is not open source.)

Re: Edgy/Raffy's Official Catus Thread

@Paloro: While I wish I could of had everything ready for the pre-patch, I probably won't. You'll need to do traditional analysis or use Simc to evaluate level 90 with the 6.0 changes. Personally, I feel any optimization during these few weeks is kinda pointless anyway. This will be easy to do once ...

I'm just working with enUS. The localizations are easy extract, do you need a (SpellID, Localization) <-> Spell Name map? I could dump you one. Maybe I can add an optional WarKit file for localizations.

My main area of interest is your spell database (and then item proc rate info).

Paper Catus version 1 is pretty close. The program still needs a bunch of features, but the primary function is working great. You can take a simc profile (from simc, or in-game /simc) or a Catus CompactGear string and paste it into Paper Catus for any class/spec. You'll get a complete paper doll, l...
