I don’t like spamming the blog with new spreadsheet versions, but once again it’s a minor update that’s quite important. Version 1.2.2 changes:
- Item Ranking Links: Wowhead, LootRank and Pawn ranking links have been added to the Calculator tab. This happened so quickly because I was very kindly invited to copy the “code” out of SEIC.
- Phylactery of the Nameless Lich: These items are now in-game and as such we finally know their internal cooldowns to be 90 seconds, which changes the value of the trinkets somewhat.
- Glyph of Elemental Mastery: there was a mistake in the way this interacted with 2t10 which I only became aware of when somebody else pointed it out to me. For the details, check the thread on EJ.
The upshot of the Phylactery and Glyph of EM changes is:
- Normal Phylactery is about even with normal Reign of the Dead, and Heroic Phylactery is about even with heroic Reign of the Dead. Heroic Spyglass is slightly better than the normal version of either trinket, but not as good as the heroic versions. DFO is secure at the top of the table.
- Glyph of Elemental Mastery is simply never going to challenge Glyph of Totem of Wrath at any gear level. It seems that as we approach BiS level, the dominant glyphs will remain Glyph of Lightning Bolt, Glyph of Flame Shock and Glyph of Totem of Wrath. Even Glyph of Lava slips well behind once we get rid of 4t9.
(That reminds me, I need to update the BiS post now that the Lich King’s loot is known.)
The new item ranking links are on the Calculator tab – just click the relevant links to use them. For Pawn, you need to click the “Update” button and then copy the contents of the relevant cell to the Pawn import option.
