UI customization

Ui customization is always up to personal preference but we have linked some guides and helpful tips for it here:

Actionframes, Raidframes, Nameplates are your main choice of things to customize and addons for this are plentiful.

Some popular ones are Bartender for actionbars, Prat for Chat, Threatplates for Nameplates, and Shadowed Unitframes for unitframes.

Alternatively you have choice of using ElvUI which is basically all in one addon suite¬† which you can set up ( or use ready profiles made by other people, profiles available at Wago.Io. ElvUI can be downloaded at the developers own website at www.tukui.org¬†– they use their own client for keeping the addon up to date, Tukui client. If you use elvui, download it ūüôā

Azerite Traits

Azerite is blizzards new favorite distraction for us that we all love to hate. Unfortunately it’s proven to be pretty annoying system for the most people in how it works, and requires heavy simming to make sense of the usability of the traits. Good sources of information regarding Azerite in general, and which traits you should be looking out for your own spec are Class Discord guides, Icy-Veins, Wowhead

General Azerite guide https://www.wowhead.com/heart-of-azeroth-azerite-traits-guide

Class specific Azerite guides can be found at Icy-Veins under your own class at https://www.icy-veins.com/wow/class-guides

Best and up to date listings for how powerful traits are can also be found from Bloodmallet at https://bloodmallet.com/index.html  and Herodamage  https://bloodmallet.com/index.html but keep in mind that these sims are naturally oriented around maximizing DPS.

 

Simulationcraft AKA “Simming DPS”

General idea is simple: you simulate various fights based on date you input to it, for example all gear you have in your bags+wearing and find out the best possible combinations of gear to use for each specific fight scenario. For example singletarget boss fights and AOE cleave.

How to do this is simple, you get Simulationcraft addon from https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/simulationcraft after which you log ingame and type /Simc and get the import string there which you can then head over to paste it in to https://www.raidbots.com/simbot  webpage where you can make it Simulate different scenarios for you. You paste the string there and let it work its magic and find out how you could be doing, or which pieces are the best for each different type of scenario.

For example, comparing your trinkets would result in gear scenario like this:

Leading you to conclude that Frenetic Corpscule and Darkmoon Deck: Fathoms are the best options for single target damage as that was the scenario I was simming there.
