My current gear is based on raidbots simulations. However, in the past I have tried to use AMR to provide me with a second opinion. Used to be, they are different, but not drastic. However over the past expansion or so, SimC and AMR have been getting further and further apart on recommendations, so much so that I ultimately stopped reviewing AMR results. However, I decided to check on it again today just to see how things stood now as we are into 8.3. When the results came back they were so different, that I suspected something must be up. So I used AMR’s simulate to run my current gear as well as the recommended new gear, and even with simulate the recommended BiB is nearly 10% lower than my current gear.

BiB is just using AMR single tarted gearing strategy
