Just saw this guide go up figured it might be useful for others as well.
This should be super helpful. I see exactly what I'm doing wrong. Good find!
Also weird: Auspicious Spirits becomes viable with the 4-piece apparently?
That... is strange and different than everything I have read. Time to test.
Edit: gear stat priorities.
Threw Ryanfodder into sim craft and generated some scaling numbers/weights.
The numbers in orange are generated by averaging the normalized scaling factors across 5 different fights types. The goal is to maximize yourself on average for all fight types.
These numbers are technically only correct for Ryan at his current gear setup, but as they agree with this particular guide they might be worth using in AMR.
I had the gear to get 6% higher DPS using these weights. I will have lower DPS on Gruul, but probably higher than everything else.
