My Gear Upgrade List is different from My Eternity Burden List
« on: September 18, 2013, 05:46:13 AM »
Currently if I go to my profile and I look at the Eternity list it is different in value from the list when simply clicking my helmet slot and look at the items.

In this case Cloudscorcher Cowl of the Wildfire > Cloudscorcher Cowl of the Feverflare in affliction spec by 204.60 which doesn't make sense.

However, in the Eternity Upgrade List, Feverflare > Cloudscorcher by 837.86.

I'm unsure why the gear upgrade list is inconsistent and incorrect.

Are you looking at Absolute or Relative difference?

For the values listed it was the average. Regardless, the data means that in one view, one helm is better - in the other view, the other helm is better... It really doesn't make sense.

To reproduce, click "Cloudscorcher Cowl of the Wildfire" on the helm slot - you will notice "Cloudscorcher Cowl of the Feverflare" below it at -221.10.

Close that window, and go to "Find Upgrades" -> "Burden of Eternity". You'll notice that "Cloudscorcher Cowl of the Feverflare" is now rated +999.73 average and +1387.64 Top Score

This is due to how you were looking at the items - you were viewing the list in Absolute mode.

Absolute means "how this item compares, ignoring all of my other gear"

This will highly value gear with Hit (and other extremely valuable, but cappable stats) because it ranks the item as if you had zero of that stat to begin with.

Relative ranks the gear based on what you are already wearing; this is the comparison Find Upgrade shows you as well.
