Why is my weapon score blue? [Profile]
Return to board index
I was checking out my character's (Vorizul, on Bloodscalp) gear score, when I noticed that WoWhead had my weapon in blue, as opposed to the other gear I have, which is done in purple. I can't seem to find an explanation for this.
So, could anyone tell me why a gear score might be blue, instead of being purple, like the rest of my gear?
It's a floating score system. The score color changes depending on the average gear level for your level. In other words, if you have mostly level 70 blues on at level 70 your gear score should be blue. If, however, you have mostly 70 blues on at level 80 then your gear score will likely be green, thus showing that your level 70 blues are more equal to level 80 greens. Purple gear scores would mean that the gear is epic quality for your current level.
The above applies to both your individual gear score as well as the gear score for each item.
The way the gear score is coded here, an ele or resto shaman will only get full points for their weapon if you have an offhand equipped. To break it down:
Default mainhand coefficient = 1
If you have an offhand and are enhancement with dual-wield, mainhand coefficient = 2.37
If you have an offhand and are ele/resto, mainhand coefficient = 2.37
If you have no offhand and are enhancement without dual-wield, mainhand coefficient = 2
Since you don't fall into any of those 3 categories, you get the default mainhand coefficient of 1 instead of the 2 that warlocks, priests, mages and druids get without offhand weapons.
The raw code:
Don't just go slinging our code around like that without asking. :P —Malgayne
Hey Malgayne, your devs are the ones that pushed the code to me in the first place. I'm not revealing anything that's inaccessible.
Anyway, I'll think again before answering questions for your users.
Did we send you that code specifically? I honestly don't remember. The version of it that's up on the live site is obfuscated, so it looked to me like you were just taking obfuscated code, de-obfuscating it, and posting it up on the forums—which struck me as rather impolite.
Please don't get me wrong, I appreciate you answering the question. I just had someone shout "Hey, he's posting our source code!" so I removed it as a matter of policy.
Yeah, but if the six foot guy is naked up top we don't expect people to be trying to see through the fence that's blocking the unmentionables. :P
