Description

Please note that the addon is still in beta so don't expect everything to be perfect.

After all that recent changes to the Champion Point System, distributing your CP to optimize your DPS has become a rather complicated affair. Theory Crafters like Asayre and Br1ckst0n/Woeler have worked to make CP calculators available, but this still requires you to get a parse, analyse it and enter the data manually.

This addon aims to simplify this process by automatically reading a Combat Metrics parse and enter all data automatically.

It then attempts to calculate a better CP distribution and shows your original and new damage factor.

Instructions:
  • Open Combat Metrics or the Champion Point Menu. The Constellations window will then open as well.
  • On the first tab in Constellations you need to enter the ratios of the various types of Damage you cause.
  • If you want to import a parse from Combat Metrics, browse to a fight and press the import button in the Constellations Window.
  • Don't forget to adjust your "Damage Bonus %" value, as this isn't determined automatically.
  • You can also select units (e.g. only the boss) in Combat Metrics so damage to other targets gets neglected.
  • Alternatively you can enter everything manually.
  • On the second tab you can edit the original CP composition. For new Combat Metrics Parses (since 0.7.4 on 20th of June) the CP composition is saved, so it will be restored on import. Otherwise your current CP distribution is preset.
  • When everything is set, press the calculate button on the 2nd tab.
  • If the new damage factor is higher (indicated by green text color) a better CP distribution has been found.

Current Limitations:
  • The addon can not automatically detect your Damage Done values. You need to set it yourself.
  • The addon can not set any CP's, you only get shown what would be optimal.
  • Some abilities including most abilities which are not rank 4 are still missing from the database, which means they won't be automatically imported. A debug message will hint at these abilities. Please report them here, so I can implement them in the future. If you have some experience in theory crafting you can also add them to this spreadsheet which I (and hopefully others) will update.

Big thanks to Latin for doing most of the work to collect data for all those abilities. Addtional thanks to Asayre for his theory crafting work on all the ingame mechanics.

[Constellations] (99267) Unfathomable Darkness - No Data for this Ability!

On a different subject. Why everytime I import a dummy parse, my "Damage Bonus %" resets to 20%?

Btw thanks for the addon

Not that I'm aware of. But I probably should. I think I can do it until tomorrow.
Thank you for updating it! Now I can finally use constellations for my magblade.
Your welcome, though admittedly I wanted to do it much sooner, but then I forgot

No, they are not. Checking for those would considerably increase the Calculation Time.

I guess one of them is not rank 4? In that case I'd want both. Thanks for reporting it !

For anyone else trying to assist with missing IDs like Depencil here, hit the addon options for Combat Metrics. Debug options "Show ability ID" checked. Now do another fight and it will show all the IDs for spells. Post the IDs for the missing spell that Constellations is commenting about.
Actually the id is posted in the note above, its 30346. I will try to add it after my raid today, or at latest tomorrow.
