Tank Gear Optimizer Update


#1

Today’s update has a lot of changes and improvements to the tank gear optimizer. You can read more in the Tank Gear Optimizer blog post.


#2

I posted an update with a few fixes to the new tank stuff:

  1. Sometimes setting the threshold high (Mythic or higher) was causing it to switch over to DPS mode instead of going for more toughness – that should be fixed now.

  2. Weapon enchants for DPS for tanks weren’t ranking correctly sometimes, should be fixed now for most cases.

There are a couple other more complex cases that I’m looking into that might cause some unusual rankings at higher item levels (380+). And there is another case causing lower-level trinkets to be chosen sometimes, also working on fixing that.

Edit: seems in some other cases it is suggesting low-level gear, working through a few cases and will have a fix as soon as possible.

Today we posted another update that should fix some of the issues people ran into with the new tank gear optimizer.

  • You should no longer see the optimizer pick low-level gear in some cases. Please let us know if you do and we’ll take a look.
  • More consistent ranking of trinkets and azerite powers. Sometimes the difference between the value of lower and higher ilvl versions of the same effects were coming out too close together.

You may notice some slight differences after this update, e.g. the toughness thresholds might be slightly different. Be sure to adjust it as you see fit.


#4

I have 320 ilvl, Ret (recommended 317) and Holy (308) look to be working fine. However Prot is missing my saved gear (empty slots and showing 99 ilvl) and you are recommending 199 ilvl gear or so with a Cloak of Concealment (stormwind teleport cloak) and ilvl 132 mining pick for wpn and crate of kidnapped puppies for a trinket. In addition to old Tier set (highlord and silverhand sets). This is a major issue that I find often.


#5

Can you please share your addon string you get from within the game? (The one that you paste into the website)


#6

Also, you can usually resolve the missing gear issue by simply activating that spec once in-game, then exporting again.

That’s not really the point. AMR is supposed to automatically select my best gear for each spec based on it’s priority. I care that it’s recommending incorrect pieces. Just re-ran this again.


#9

I’m working on another update for very low-level geared tank optimization, should resolve most of the issues. It is a bit challenging to get gear rankings to work over such a wide range of gear for tanks – the current rankings work pretty well down to about ilvl320 or so (a big improvement over the first version). This next update should work well down to about ilvl270.

Below that, it should in theory automatically switch over to a DPS-only scoring method, since at such low levels toughness doesn’t really matter… might as well gear for DPS while you work on getting to max level and getting higher ilvl gear.

My previous comment was simply to address your issue with gear not showing up for your tank spec, you probably just hadn’t activated it in the addon in a while.

Cool, working better now. Appreciate it.
