Optimal Stat Graph big difference to Best in Slot gear?

Hello,

Blood DK here, optimizing for M+.

I noticed that the “Optimal Stats Graph” displays that high Versatility is preferred, but when I look at the “Best in Slot” gear I can achieve the Versatility stat is actually very low.

Shouldn’t it aim for high Versatility and leave stats like Critical Strike aside?

I’m not sure if the stat graph is working 100% correctly - it’s on our list to take a look at. What the optimizer picks for BiS follows the data that we have in the gearing strategy.

Especially for tanks, I need to tweak the stat graphs a bit. The way that the data was generated, the graph doesn’t start to render correctly until around ilvl200 (normal difficulty raids).

Also, if your gear is lower ilvl (yours is around 165), the optimizer will more or less go for DPS gear instead of toughness gear, and won’t follow the stat graph for toughness yet. I’m working on tweaking that threshold where it can start using toughness so that it is a bit lower. I think right now it is around ilvl180 where it will kick in.

In the meantime, you could also use the customization feature to favor different secondary stats.
