I think this may have been a case of that specific sword simply having wildly inflated secondaries. If I recall correctly, when I played during Wrath, +STR and +Hit were the stat kings for plate DPS classes (I remember all the guides recommending +STR gems in every slot and +STR enchants on everything) and secondary stats were, well, secondary, and inflated secondaries on a weapon weren't that big a deal. But now that secondary stats have so much more importance, I suspect that an "outlier" weapon like that just wreaks havoc with modern calculations, so that all the addon sees is that this particular sword offers +15 more Haste and Crit than everything else that drops.
I've been having what is apparently a scaling issue caused by inflated secondary stats on some Wrath of the Lich King items. In particular, my Highmountain tauren warrior leveled through Northrend and picked up a green, iLvl 87, 2h sword. All of the secondaries were in the +25 to +30 range, and the Dugi Gear Advisor decided it was better than the heirloom 2h axe I was using. So I went ahead and equipped the sword.
First of all let me say i Love the Addon but running into an issue i have the auto equip feature turned off and its still switching gear on me which can get a little annoying when it keeps unquipping my shield during a fight lol. i play a pally tank but its syill changing my gear. it also does this on my other toons as well if i have a pice of gear that it thinks is better it switches even though i have the auto equip best un checked . am i doing something wrong or what?other than that no issues it works great and between you and sexy maps this is a great replacement for carbonite which they dont keep up with anymore.
Each of our leveling guides was created by a team of professional speed levelers and is designed to walk you step by step through the games questline, leveling you from 1 to 50 using the fastest route possible. Each guide is written in an easy step by step format and tells you exactly where to go, who to talk to, what quests to accept, how to complete objectives, and more. You will be amazed by the difference Zygor makes.
I love this addon and the accompanying standalone tool. Thanks so much. In particular, I enjoy the commented section including bagged items so that I can easily simulate comparisons w/ the copy= command. Is there any way to include bagged relics for comparison as well? The addon must have access to the identifiers, and it would be MUCH easier than trying to match them on Wowhead.
