    Gear Guide STILL ignoring primary stat to stack mastery

    This has gone beyond irritating to completely ridiculous. No, I am not going to trade 14 int, 25 haste, 21, stamina and 8 armor on a ilvl 551 piece for 25 master on a ilvl 522 piece. AMR thinks it's a stupid idea, *I* think it's totally ridiculous and this quality of suggestion continues time after time. It's gotten to to the point I don't even look, I just tell it DECLINE.

    Is there ANY plan to fix this? If not, please let us all know so we can disable it because in its current permutation, it's a poc.

    There should not be bad suggestions like this. Please follow the steps in the first post of this thread (http://www.zygorguides.com/forum/sho...ar-Suggestions) and post the bug report in either that thread or this one.

    No. It happens SO frequently too much time would be taken away from the game to make posts about something that shouldn't be happening. You think I'm kidding and I am not. I have already made 4 detailed posts regarding the poor suggestions with detailed information in each post. For now, that has GOT to be enough.

    I don't know what's going on but it's bad. I uninstalled and reinstalled Zygor Guides this morning and the result is not pretty. I have a directional arrow that tells me to go to Gorgrond but it doesn't change color or position regardless of where my character goes. To me that says I've got something stuck. I'm going to back out of WoD and completely remove Zygor Guides, all it's settings and lua files, everything I can find that has anything to do with Zygor Guides. Then I'll get back in the game and run around for a bit to make sure everything works before reinstalling.

    I have done a COMPLETE uninstall, removing Zygor Guides and anything in the WoD folder. If there's something else to remove I have no idea what it would be. And after the reinstall . . . tada, the problem is still here and very much in evidence. I don't know where the guide is getting its stats but they don't at all match what is showing for the armor and weapons.

    A brief examination shows this swap is not a good one as she's losing all sorts of stuff she needs to be effective. She is NOT gaining 32 intellect, she is losing 29 intellect. I would say the gear guide is not considering the offhand but that's not right either. That math is completely bogus. She's not gaining 50 haste, the haste is a wash. That math is also completely bogus as well. Ditto for stamina. She gains ONE, not the purported 48. The DPS is right, she would gain 2. Versatility and multistrike swap but 21 mastery vanishes and she takes a big hit on spell power.

    This issue is happening with seven toon in active play across Draenor. There is no way I'm going to hand hold this process and report every mismatch. After about the third interruption to tell you the addon sucks I would want to reach through the ether and strangle you. Instead of resorting to mental violence I'm going to hit decline without even looking. When I get completely pissed I'm going to disable the gear guide completely, bitch at you some more in stronger terms and go back to what I want to do which is play my toons instead of fighting with your addon.

    Is there a chance there is a conflict with one of the other addons I'm using? The ones that report gear are Geary and Gearing Guide. Gearing Guide is still working though I don't think it's up to snuff yet for Draenor and the new stat prefs, but even at that it's still telling me what's worth a second look, and Geary does nothing but look at the gear and tell me what ilevel it is and what enchants and gems are missing.

    I don't know where Zygor is getting its armor/weapon stats for comparison. Everything else is still performing as it should. I've now wasted over an hour of play time working through this for you. Please, figure this out. I want to play, not do your job.

    A loss in every single category. I've been getting a lot of this type recommendation as well. Idiotic.

    Honestly? Lost of 69 various stats for 25 haste? Really? So, three suggestions, all complete crap. Do you get a hint why I might be totally frustrated with this part of the guide?

    It's fine if you don't want to post up the bug report stuff but right now we can't determine the problem quickly with just these screen shots so it might take a while to figure out what's happening to get it fixed.

    Part of it is a basic failure to understand . . . yesterday it advised my rogue to equip an axe. While the stats may look pretty, when you compare what actually happens in the spells with an equipped axe compared to a dagger, the axe cuts the DPS significantly, even if equipped in the off-hand. The axe should never have been considered for a rogue. Rogues may be able to equip an axe but the cut in DPS is huge.

    I don't know where the stats Zygor Guides uses comes from but it appears to have no connection to reality. And the images I'm posting gives you all the information I have available to me. The single screenshot shows you what Zygor has recommending and the purported change to stats, the actual stats of the recommended piece of gear and the actual stats of what is equipped all in one tidy screenshot. If you need something other than that information I don't know what it is.

    As I posted before what we need right now is the information that can be obtained by following the steps in the first post of this thread: http://www.zygorguides.com/forum/sho...ar-Suggestions
