Yes Pryro, can not explain how annoying it is. I'm a Mac user - and ENHsim, at least as of my last check, can't run on a Mac except out of a VERY unfriendly, unmaclike CLE with a data input text file. Gah. No. Bad. Put out a program on a mac or don't, but if you do, at least provide a GUI to make it usable.My other problem is the thought that i'm NOT serious by not doing it. If I can do my gearing right (not making glaring mistakes like not being hit-capped), and my DPS is good, and bosses are going down (and since my guild, despite a slow start is now 11th on my server and going up every week), I don't see how I'm less serious then someone who sits and plugs everything into a program and gets answers spat at him.

@saintstryfe - agreed that it's frustrating when you can't use a tool on a Mac. Mr. Robot's tool works on PCs, Macs, even the iPad! If you missed the earlier comment I had to pyromelter, here's what Mr. Robot's tool does: it gives you good advice on gear, gems, enchants and reforges. To be clear, it doesn't simulate DPS, it uses formulas and stat weights to choose the best gear setup for you. It's meant to be simple and quick to use - so that you can spend more time in GAME!I agree that not simming does NOT mean you're less serious. Earlier someone compared this discussion to football, I like to compare it to supercars. I want to spend time driving my Lambo and my Bugatti - racing them, washing them by hand, cleaning them. But I hand it over to the pro's to do work under the hood. They do it better than me, and the learning curve to do it myself is too high. That doesn't mean I love my Lambo or Bugatti any less, and it doesn't affect my performance when racing. *does not have a Lamborghini or a Bugatti.http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear
