At level 80, I skipped Cataclysm and went straight to Pandaria. Even as my warrior leveled up, and that heirloom axe increased in iLvl along with me, Dugi still ranked that iLvl 87 sword higher. I kept picking up new 2h weapons, and Dugi kept rejecting them in favor of that Wrath sword. That's when I noticed that all of these Pandaria weapon drops, even weapons 20 iLvls higher than the Wrath sword, had secondaries under 20. So even though Dugi Gear Advisor is showing that a new weapon would provide a DPS increase, it still prompts me to re-equip that Wrath sword every time I equip a new weapon. Meanwhile, I've kept the heirloom axe in my bags, assuming that at some point its stats would once again beat whatever I had equipped, but nope, it doesn't, according to Dugi.

1 All expansion guides are written in the Battle for Azeroth beta in order to have them ready on launch day. It's important to note that betas can be buggy and unstable and may delay and even halt our progress on the guides. Furthermore, the time between the start of beta and the announced release of Battle for Azeroth is much shorter (by about 2-3 months) than past betas. As a result, our primary focus is to have the Leveling guides updated by the launch, and only if those are complete and time remains will we work on updating the remaining guides. All guides not finished in beta will be updated post launch. You can read more about this here.
I think this may have been a case of that specific sword simply having wildly inflated secondaries. If I recall correctly, when I played during Wrath, +STR and +Hit were the stat kings for plate DPS classes (I remember all the guides recommending +STR gems in every slot and +STR enchants on everything) and secondary stats were, well, secondary, and inflated secondaries on a weapon weren't that big a deal. But now that secondary stats have so much more importance, I suspect that an "outlier" weapon like that just wreaks havoc with modern calculations, so that all the addon sees is that this particular sword offers +15 more Haste and Crit than everything else that drops.

In World of Warcraft, each character has a unique set of skills and abilities that define their role. For example, magicians –are powerful spellcasters, who use supernatural forces to attack the enemy from a distance, but in the melee – are extremely vulnerable. These features determine magicians’ strategy: to keep their distance, do the most damage and hope to kill monsters before they get to them.
Love the addon, however I'm having a problem. Anytime I try to do specific actions (change my personal notes in guild window, use quest items [i.e.. using the shears from objective tracker to collect goat fur, or any other quest item used from objective tracker], etc.) I keep getting an error that the interface action was blocked by DugiUI. My only options are to cancel and not preform that function, or to disable and reload UI. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I’ve reviewed my fair share of Guides. If, much like me you’re fed up with guides which can be put together inside a messy manner you don’t have to worry about that with Dugi’s Guide.The writer has done a great job making certain you spend more of your time and effort learning his substance than looking by way of his guide for what you’d like to learn.
