    Please explain this stat weight to me (frost DK)

    I ran my DK through raidbots on their simbot because I wanted to know how I personally should be looking for ways to improve myself. I'm just really confused at what the analysis means though. Using the image below, does that mean that mastery should be increased because it has the 1.12 value while haste is right behind it and then crit a little after that and vers not that far behind it? I get that weapon dps & strength are going to yield the biggest increase for me as that's generally how things go for dps but its the secondaries that confuse me.

    Basically mastery on every item and the second isn't a deal breaker. Not sure what you are asking. If you can plug in your own stats inflate your own values and resim to see where say 30%mastery or haste falls off and others shoot up. That might be a good chart to follow for the first tier but the more you get something will shift in value. Enough to change the order? Just resim every few items. And see if something drops. Mastery should stay best imo but we'll just have to see how next tiers stats inflate

    Use top gear, stat weights are a thing of the past.

    But to answer your question - these numbers is amount of DPS you'll get by improving this stat

    To me it seems that every stat you have is almost of the same value, so ilvl >>>>>>>>>mastery>=the others

    it tells you at the bottom what the numbers mean. 1 point of weapon dps will increase your dps by 9.19. 1 off hand weapon dps will increase your dps by 3.21, 1 point of str will increase your dps by 2.67, etc.

    It means each point of mastery will give you more dps than the others. It fluctuates as you change gear and isn't entirely helpful to know, but of for some reason you have some choice between mastery or other stats, pick mastery. Such as a socket or food buff.

    Keep in mind tho, there's different sim options. You most likely did patchwerk which is pure single target no movement. Theres different options to give you a look at stat priorities in dif scenarios. Such as hectic add cleave.

    On my frost dk with my gear, mastery is best all around. After mastery, crit is good for ST, haste is good for cleave.

    Also, just download the addon "Pawn" and copypaste the result in there and you will automatically see ingame which items are better.

    What's confusing about it? It's pretty self explanatory. Strength is better than mastery, which is marginally better than haste, crit and vers at your current stat levels

    Also stat weights are useless. Just run top gear and don't both with stat weights ever again

    Lol no. Delete Pawn, it is completely irrelevant and inaccurate
