Lol, I'm now going to name my updates in sync with the rift client updates. Awesome right? Thought so too.
NOTICE : NEW FILE. Please update your bookmarks, this version is using a new document.
Soo. What's new this time?
A HUGE revamp to the entire tanking section. Some of you will have noticed the half done changes on the old version, where I kept screwing up my formulas, but everything is straightened out now in this new file.
All tank gear in the main charts are sorted by BiS When equipped with the best pre-raid gear. That is to say, full planar conqueror's gear with crafted accessories. This is to represent the average gearing of most players who start to consider BiS lists with more interest.
That said, to the LEFT of all item charts, is the same charts, but live sorted to match the BiS results of your currently equipped gear AND skills. So if you would like to get personalized lists, please follow the instructions on the HOME sheet to play with it yourself.
Since the Ring and Essence section involves item which can be doubled over, I added some tweaks. The ring section has a SLOT 1 and SLOT 2 calc, each giving you the results based on the other equipped ring. The essences section I had alot of fun making. At the end of the chart, are columns with the EHP difference for each essence in each slot, again based on currently equipped essences. Better results get highlighted in green, while worse results are red, all made for easy reading.
ANOTHER NOTICE: These new formulas are MASSIVE. Should you print one formula at font size 12, it can fill 1.5 pages. So, gdocs really doesn't appreciate it when you play around and modify alot of things at once. GIVE IT TIME TO LOAD when you play with the gear eval sheet, or you risk crashing the document and having to wait while it reloads. I will be working on streamlining the formulas after the holidays, as well as releasing an actual downloadable Excel and OpenOffice version, which work alot faster with the formulas, however they lose the live sorting feature, which will have to be done manually.
No other major updates. Enjoy
