Frequently asked questions:


My Arcane/Fire mage is running out of mana, how do I sim it with infinite mana?

Fire mages with high haste or fire mages without http://www.wowhead.com/item=132406/marq ... e-sun-king will run out of mana due to their combustion uses, you can enable infinite mana by putting a custom command code into the custom APL box. "infinite_mana=1". This command only works in the "advanced" section of Raidbots.

Why do are my light movement sims not accurate versus my light movement gameplay?

For mage, movement is a bit tricky to sim. In game we can cover most things by using shimmer or pre-moving in our GCD's. Light movement doesn't take this properly into account and there for walks a lot of the time instead of using our mobility such as the GCD walking. To get a more accurate movement sim you should just sim using the "patchwerk" or "casting patchwerk" fightstyles.

How do I sim firestarter longer than just the first 10% of the fight?

You can use a custom APL command line "firestarter_time=x" input x as the amount of seconds you want firestarter to last for. You generally use this command line for simming firestarter vs pyromaniac on very specific fights. This command only works in the "advanced" section of Raidbots

Why do my pantheon trinkets sim higher than they do in game?

If you enable additional pantheon trinkets in the raid, they will act like http://www.wowhead.com/item=154172/amanthuls-vision. http://www.wowhead.com/item=154172/amanthuls-vision has a higher proc rate than the lesser pantheon trinkets, even if they are at 1000 ilvl. So even if you have the x amount of trinkets you used as input in the raid, you will sim higher because of these proc rates.
