I've always turned to www.shadowpanther.net for my theorycrafting... especially since I stink at math. I've also set up some scale tags using the Pawn addon based on SP's formula. The author is still maintaining the site, as you'll see several updates in just the last few days.I'll have to look at warcrafter.net, though. It sounds interesting.Subtlety FTW!

The oft-cited problem with shadowpanther is that it assigns static stat values to rogue gear, when that is not how it actually works. The real value of stats depends on a more complex system of variables, such as talent build, group composition (or lack of it), and the amount of other stats that you have.As a reference tool for raw data like item lists and their stats, it's a fine tool. For valuation purposes, it is too oversimplified.

I've recognized that it has limitations, but for my limited concept of theorycrafting it works well for my needs. Also, the scale tags I use have formulas for PvE and PvP values for MH, OH, and Dagger builds. Taken as a whole, the mixed values can at the very least point you in the right direction for an upgrade.While it might not be as precise or in-depth as Elitist Jerks, I find it very helpful for a more casual playstyle. It helps take the guess-work out of gear-selection without needing a math degree.

Warcrafter.net is an awesome site/tool, unfortunately it has not been updated yet, but should be in the next couple of days.
