I would also STRONGLY encourage players to check out the iDPS Rogue DPS tool that is out there. Its visually MUCH stronger than Adrianna's sheet, does a better job of suggesting upgrades, AND doesn't overlook as many 'starter' items as the other sheets do. "What, my ilevel 245 neck piece wasn't even good enough to add to your spreadsheet? So now all my numbers are wrong. Thanks Adrianna, sorry I didn't use the same gear you had".iDPS is also found on the elitist jerks forums in the same section as the other sheets. Trust me on this, its a REALLY REALLY helpful tool, and doesn't feel like 'spreadsheeting' despite giving you the same information much easier to follow and understand.

I am absolutely in love with the iDPS Java tool - been using it for two months or so now, and it truly is much more intuitive and cleaner than mucking around in Excel.

I've been increasingly pleased with iDPS as its steadily developed and improved its functionality. Initially I ran it alongside Aldriana's spreadsheet for a period of four weeks or so, using both and monitoring for differences, but I've developed enough trust and confidence in iDPS that I have recently been using it exclusively and also recommending it to all my rogues (Rogue only guild!).http://code.google.com/p/idps/For anyone getting started into preparing gear for raiding this is the best option available. It forms an introduction to min/maxing in a simple to use manner that creates a welcoming enticement to rogues to learn and make informed decisions about their equipment choices. The complexities of the spreadsheet can tend to isolate people at this stage in particular, and learning to brute force gear into the spreadsheet isn't going to be the most encouraging way to begin what should be a love affair with your rogue and its pretty numbers!Aldriana still deserves all the credit going for the spreadsheet, but that doesn't mean it is the only option, most especially for those not currently grinding their weapons against Heroic Lichy.

I just tried out the iDPS tool and it is pretty much spot on for where my dps is in ICC25. I am averaging approximately 5.9k dps over the trash mobs and bosses. I still have a few items to upgrade (trinket and neck straight off the top of my head) so I should be able to push that up to about the 6.9k that I got the other night on Saurfang.So for me to be achieving the amount of dps that iDPS is saying that I am doing means that I have my rotation down tight :)Now that makes me damned happy...Just give me some more gear and I will be happy.
