I also use rawr and find it incredibly user-friendly. And while it may have some modeling limitations, the ease of use and effortless availability of every item in the Armory makes gearing choices a piece of cake. But then my rogue is a very new 80 (every piece is either ilvl 187 or 200 and they're all blue except for a few epics), meaning I have many more potential gear choices to evaluate at this stage than does someone decked out entirely in ilvl 264 items. For my needs at this time, rawr is just more helpful than a spreadsheet. But I am curious about iDPS, that sounds like something worth checking out.What I'd like to know more about is what is the optimal strategy for spending my Emblems, now that I'm earning them? Spend them as soon as I have just enough to buy a single upgrade item or continue saving them for a better (but more costly) item? I've heard several veteran players bemoan how they "wasted" their Emblems by riding the perpetual incremental upgrade railroad. What do you leet rogues say?

For my DPS toons, I figure out which emblem pieces I want, find out how much more DPS each one gets me, and then divide by the number of emblems. Whichever piece has the highest result gets bought next.On the other hand, this does need to be updated each time you pick up an upgrade; it's all fairly quick and easy if your class has a decent Rawr model.
