Frequently Asked Questions

How is this Guide useful?
We use algorithms to parse big data chunks from Top 1% Raiders using various public World of Warcraft sources such as the official Blizzard API and WarcraftLogs. We believe that statistics is a very reliable method for determining solid choices for end-game optimization.
Why do you show different recommendations for each boss?
There is usually a slight divergence in optimal choices for each given boss, so we decided to cover that in our guides. However, we also provide you with the 'All Stars' option which is the summary of most popular choices for all bosses together, in case you want the 'set it and forget it' approach (even though in some cases you might end up sacrificing a bit of your performance).
