Meet our new feature, SimDPS Rankings
! It's a new way of ranking character gear and builds!
SimDPS is calculated for millions of WoWProgress characters using SimulationCraft
SimulationCraft is a free and open-source simulation of WoW combat mechanics: it can simulate a fight with one or many players fighting one or many targets and produce detailed informations.
How does the updating work?
Currently we update all DD specs!
All active guilds and DPS characters are updated automatically every few days.
You can also initialize updating of your guild or character with "Update Now" button.
DPS calculation might be delayed from a few seconds up to a couple of hours as it's a very CPU-intensive task.
What are the simulation conditions?
Currently it simulates Patchwerk-style boss fight, 900 seconds long. It does 100 iterations each time to calculate DPS.
Currently it simulates Patchwerk-style boss fight, 450
seconds long. It does 1000
iterations each time to calculate DPS.
You can find these details on your character page, see the SimDPS tooltip.
We are open for proposals for better custom boss fights with adds, multiple bosses, etc.
But it doesn't match in-game DPS?
That's true, but still it's better method to rank gear and build of DD characters.
It's better than average item level and better than any gearscore system.
Want to contribute?
The SimulationCraft team is comprised of volunteer developers from all over the world. We are always looking for new contributors. While C++ expertise is certainly helpful, we have several key members with limited coding experience. Maintaining optimal talent, gear, and default action priority lists is a huge task and requires virtually zero C++ knowledge.
We are a very laid back group of developers. While certain project members have areas of expertise, there is little in the way of strict responsibility and ownership. Developers are expected to exercise their initiative and help out wherever needed. The Google Code site provides considerable utilities for oversight. The mantra is: Just check it in. Don't ask for permission. If the code needs to be changed for functional (or artistic!) reasons, someone (probably Nate!) will revert/modify as needed.
If you are interested in joining the team, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact info.
And we have one more new thing: guild rosters now include SimDPS and sortable by any column
You can sort guild roster by any of these columns:
- Character Name
- PvE Score
- Average Item Level
We would like to thank SimulationCraft team for the great tool they have developed!
