Imo, learn how to gear yourself appropriately through research in the appropriate places, and not from a site that spews out a gear/DPS rating based mostly on the added ilvl of your gear D:

MaxDPS does not use item levels to determine anything. They use math to show what approximate dps increase/decrease you would get from using an item given your talent spec and spell rotation.

Chris, while I agree wholeheartedly with the core of your statement (that people should learn their class mechanics and what stats mean to their character) I think MaxDPS and tools like it are an invaluable way to compare gear choices without having to crunch numbers.Whenever I'm considering a gear change, I always plug it into a DPS comparison tool so that I can play with different gems, combinations of gear out of my bank, and etc. Few people have time to go to that length with pen and paper to find the absolute max, but a utility makes it easy as clicking.
