I’ve been toying around with an alternative build for Moonkin based around the new legendary ring (soul of the arch druid) and Stellar Flare. The goal of it is to keep Starfall down and only use starsurge as a filler to avoid capping AP. The tweaks to the default APL were pretty simple and the results have been good (you only lose about 6% dps in pure single target while obviously gaining quite a bit of free cleave). The idea of it is as a go to build for fights with lots of cleave but important single target damage.
Anyway, I ran a custom gearing strategy: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/738104f185f448d0989f851e3404283f?weights=true&strategyId=e82bfcf4bd034eea97d741206b05359e
The results, unsurprisingly, came out favoring Mastery a bit more than the default AMR single target machine learning weights.
When I went to calculate BiS using this custom gearing strategy, however, it still equipped the same relics as when using the Default machine learning gearing strategy. Most problematically, it equipped a Starsurge Relic when it could’ve equipped a Falling Star (Stellar Empowerments) relic of the same ilvl. Manually swapping to a Falling Star relic improved DPS by over the margin of error (Falling Star relic, Starsurge relic)
Is there any way to build in relic traits to their value via custom gearing strategies? It seems like they’re just stuck with the default gearing strategy values. Is that right?
