Here is a summary of small feature updates and tweaks that we made in July (and a few that will be posted shortly, sometime within an hour or two of this post):
Max Use Items Feature
This is a new optimizer feature available on Best in Bags and Best in Slot. It lets you limit how many on-use items the optimizer will pick at the same time. It defaults to 1.
The optimizer is pretty good at adjusting for lost value from two on-use items locking each other out and telling you when it is mathematically superior to use two on-use items. But it is really unpopular to do so – it is a pain to manage, and too easy to time things poorly in a more chaotic fight. And it’s just annoying to have more buttons for things that are ultimately very small performance increases.
So now you can control it! Enjoy!
We have updated the rankings for a few Eternal Palace trinkets, and the Logic Loop + Bit Band combos from Mechagon based on in-game testing and log data. You won’t see a huge difference, but a few items might be better/worse than previously after the updates.
Holy Paladin Updates
We significantly tweaked the holy paladin gearing strategy a week or so ago. It now heavily favors the popular Glimmer of Light builds that work really well in-game. It will also favor getting one Light’s Decree, a Retribution trait that actually works for Holy spec – you get the 5 sec extended duration to Avenging Wrath. Just swap specs to pick the trait, swap back to Holy, you’re good to go!
