Our addon assists with turning the game’s combat logging on/off when you enter a raid zone. You then upload the log file to a site like warcraftlogs to view the data.
The simulator has a feature that allows you to import a character from a log of a fight, and simulate something similar. It will try to set parameters like fight length to match, and the boss script if we have that boss modeled, otherwise it will pick the most similar boss script that we have available. It will also load your character’s information – gear, talents, crucible powers, etc.
You will need a link to a report on warcraftlogs.com for a specific fight and a specific character. e.g. you could go to the damage detail view for a specific character. You get to that by going to your report on warcraftlogs.com, then click on a fight to view it. From there, click on the “Damage Done” tab (or healing, either works). Then click on a specific player’s name. Copy that URL into the import tool on our simulator.
Note that sometimes, the last fight in any log loads up with a URL that says “fight=last” instead of having an ID. You can simply change the fight to the next-to-last fight, and manually add 1 to the fight ID. e.g. if the link for the penultimate fight says “#fight=14”, change it to “#fight=15”.
