Dependencies

This addon requires the following libraries:

They are no longer included in the release and have to be installed separately.

Description

Please note that the addon is still in beta so don't expect everything to be perfect.

After all that recent changes to the Champion Point System, distributing your CP to optimize your DPS has become a rather complicated affair. Theory Crafters like Asayre and Br1ckst0n/Woeler have worked to make CP calculators available, but this still requires you to get a parse, analyse it and enter the data manually.

This addon aims to simplify this process by automatically reading a Combat Metrics parse and enter all data automatically.

It then attempts to calculate a better CP distribution and shows your original and new damage factor.

Instructions:
  • Open Combat Metrics or the Champion Point Menu. The Constellations window will then open as well.
  • On the first tab in Constellations you need to enter the ratios of the various types of Damage you cause.
  • If you want to import a parse from Combat Metrics, browse to a fight and press the import button in the Constellations Window.
  • Don't forget to adjust your "Damage Bonus %" value, as this isn't determined automatically.
  • You can also select units (e.g. only the boss) in Combat Metrics so damage to other targets gets neglected.
  • Alternatively you can enter everything manually.
  • On the second tab you can edit the original CP composition. For new Combat Metrics Parses (since 0.7.4 on 20th of June) the CP composition is saved, so it will be restored on import. Otherwise your current CP distribution is preset.
  • When everything is set, press the calculate button on the 2nd tab.
  • If the new damage factor is higher (indicated by green text color) a better CP distribution has been found.

Current Limitations:
  • The addon can not automatically detect your Damage Done values. You need to set it yourself.
  • The addon can not set any CP's, you only get shown what would be optimal.
  • Some abilities including most abilities which are not rank 4 are still missing from the database, which means they won't be automatically imported. A debug message will hint at these abilities. Please report them here, so I can implement them in the future. If you have some experience in theory crafting you can also comment on this spreadsheet which I (and hopefully others) will update.

Big thanks to Latin for doing most of the work to collect data for all those abilities. Addtional thanks to Asayre for his theory crafting work on all the ingame mechanics.

Question aboout calculating my "Damage Bonus %"

Thanks for a great addon!

Can anyone tell me if I should include the target's 'Increased Damage taken %' (eg. Minor Vulnerability 8%) in my tally of "Damage Bonus %"?

Apart from minor vulnerability, I don't think my Stam Warden has any "Damage Bonus %"!

Thanks!

All bleed abilities no longer ignore resistances (e.g., should scale with pen CP)
Stampede has a DoT component
Merciless Charge (Maelstrom 2H DoT) is missing
Bound Armaments new proc effect: scales with MaA

Also, on review, I think Relequen is (and has been?) configured incorrectly. It shows as scaling with both MaA and Thaum as well as being critable, but I don't think that's true. It should only scale with Thaum and not be critable (not sure about penetration; will test further).

What's the easiest way to communicate this to get the addon updated? If it's in GitHub, I can submit a PR with the relevant changes. Or I can update the spreadsheet. Or I can post changes in a comment here.

Thanks for all of your work!

Good points, I'll see to the changes.

You can submit this stuff however you want, if it's not much, I can take care of it either way.
The spreadsheet can only by altered by people that I individually unlocked. If you want to be able to edit, you can sent me you email address via DM or email so I can add you for editing.

Edit: I think I implemented the bleed changes on scalebreaker already, is there something wrong with it still?

Setting the Blessed points minimum to your desired value doesn't work?
Alternatively you could also try to set the total amount of available points (see first panel) to the total amount of points you want to spend
I'd happily set the min value for blessed if it would be in the list ;P
Silly me
But the second idea should work, right?
Yep, that seem to work, never noticed before you can set the available points on the first panel.

Although if I may suggest, it might be better to add the blessed and shattering blow to apprentice and atronach section respectively on the second panel to see all the full trees there... and then people would be able to set min value for them even if the addon wouldn't add points there by itself
You may be right about that, in fact I also wondered if I should do that. But it is more complicated than it seems. I'll probably do it, but it will take a while.
