    Optimizing gear 3rd party program

    I picked up wow again recently after having a break since late WotLK. I was raiding hard core and I remember having a 3rd party program that you could load up your character into. This program allowed you to click on each item and see what other items you could get in the game that would cause your dps to increase. It also calculated an average of what DPS you should be at if you did everything correct. I remember downloading this program from elitist jerks, I believe, but I couldnt find it when I searched their site today.

    Any help? What was the name of that program, and is there a verison for MoP out?

    Sounds like Rawr. No idea how well it works for MoP.

    Have to agree with you here, used it in the past and it was fine (towards end of wrath) but tried it yesterday and Jesus I don't know what's happened but it was laggy as hell for me kept crashing out. It also did not do a good job of optimising at all. It does say its in development though and my class is only partly supported (it says that for all class's)

    Try askmrrobot.com I know its not an app as such but it works better than any of the others I tried.

    If you are a rogue, then Shadowcraft is back online and does most of the things you wrote.
    If not I believe that the only option is Simcraft? But its surely not immediate to use.

    Askmrrobot gives you BiS lists, reforge and other optimizations but doesnt calculate your theoretical DPS.

    It was Rawr I was referring to, but I guess from what you guys are saying theres no point trying it out.

    Rawr is great, but it always takes about a year into an expansion before it actually works well.

    Some classes/specs do work in the current version but most don't.
