Why doesn't the game just tell you if a piece of gear or set of gear is a dps increase over another? Why can I not have a full set of temporary raid buffs when I am practicing on the target dummy? Why doesn't blizzard provide some of the testing/simulation tools instead of having the user base analyze their black box and try to "guess" at what the hell is going on? I have used spreadsheets before and just using them is massive time sink, I cannot imagine how much time is spent on creating these for others to use. And we are supposed to thank and laud those that make these spreadsheets and they deserve it yes. But doesn't blizzard have interns? WTF do they do? Blizzard is very lucky they have a userbase that will happily be their mathematical plowhorse for them.

It's lot more than just "one piece of gear is a DPS increase over another" because there are so many factors. Maybe the one chest piece is an improvement, but only if you adjust your talents, change a few gems, enchants and reforge your leg armor. There's no way for Blizzard to put that in a tooltip.
