BiB wants me to equip an axe on my shoulders


#1

Best in Bags is telling me to, instead of ilvl 340 Pauldrons of Rezan’s Bladeguard that I have currently equipped in the shoulder slot, equip an ilvl 310 Zem’lan Hacker (a 1h axe) in that slot. And it says it would change my score by -18.12%.

I’ve heard of a chip on someone’s shoulder, but an AXE…?
Was it a wood cutting Axe or a people killing Axe…?
Did it hurt as much as an arrow to the knee…?

EDIT:
I just ran that string through the optimiser & your Shoulder Axe seems to have been… banished.
Try a fresh optimiser session (or Ctrl+F5 on your current one) & re-import your datastring from the game…


#3

I have nothing useful to add other than the ‘chip on your shoulder’ comment made me almost spit out my drink.


#4

Someone else reported that when they import it to the in-game addon, it’s in the addon where it is showing the wrong item in the wrong slot. On the website it is fine.

Is that what you are seeing in this case too?


#5

Force reload and reimporting did fix it, thanks!

I was seeing it on the website (I should have screenshotted for posterity).


#6

I get this, too, every time I use amr now since the update for bfa. For example, right now amr says I should put a helmet on my hands, some coffee on my legs, and some fish oil on my finger. This will net me -0.37% dps and drop my ilvl 39 points, so win win.


#7

Headspace - see those orange lock icons next to those items? It means they are locked in. If you click the icon to unlock it, then click the ‘reoptimize’ button that shows up at the bottom, does it fix that?

As for how those items got locked in the first place, I’ll have to talk to our developer about that. I am wondering if some item IDs got messed up somehow, pointing to the wrong thing.
