Constellations  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.6
by: Solinur [More]
With the new CP v2.0 system, there won't be any update to Constellations anymore.

Dependencies

None

Description

Distributing your CP to optimize your DPS can be a rather complicated affair. While browser based CP calculators are available, they still require 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 may be 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.

Solinur (EU)
Version 1.1.6
  • Added a few missing abilities. Thx to yzanas and dg00des for the reports.

Version 1.1.5
  • API Bump to Markarth (100033)

Version 1.1.4
  • Added some missing data. (Thx to dhomhnuill and justme for reporting them)

Version 1.1.3
  • API Bump to Stonethorn (100032)

Version 1.1.2
  • Added missing data for Force Pulse (splash effect) and Flying Blade (second hit).
  • Increased DPS slider range to 200k.

Version 1.1.1
  • Added missing abilities: Puncturing Sweeps (thx @ daydreamr) and Stone Giant (thx @ migueltorres).

Version 1.1.0
  • Did some improvements to the optimization routine, which should now get a result faster.
  • In some cases not all CP are used (the result is still good), which will be displayed below the results.
  • Added a toggle to enforce the "Exploiter" passive of the Ritual constellation. Use this to see if a better result with Exploiter can be obtained.
  • Minimum/Maximum values of Spell Erosion and Piercing should now be followed, the only exception is when points for Exploiter are required.
  • Updated Vampire and Werewolf abilities for Greymoor.
  • Added a few Synergy abilities, based on best guesses (Don't want to bother anyone testing this with me, since those abilities are usually barely relevant in the overall damage composition).

Version 1.0.0
  • Added better display of results including percentage increase, DPS increase. In case you don't want to import a fight, the base DPS can be set on first page.
  • Added some limited support for Exploiter passive.
  • A few Notes on that:
  • When one of the investigated CP combinations fulfills requirements for the exploiter passive, it will now be attributed with the appropriate result that includes the (averaged) damage bonus.
  • The uptime of the required Off-Balance buff will be read from the imported data but can also be set on the first page. Default is the current maximum uptime. Keep in mind that in order to precisely attribute the effect, a reasonable estimation of "Damage Bonus %" on the first page is required.
  • The way the optimization works, does not always lead to it being checked. In order to force exploiter to be checked, you can set minimum and maximum poits in Thaumaturge to 75.

Version 0.4.18
  • Added Aegis Caller

Version 0.4.17
  • Checked and where necessary updated Templar abilities.
  • Updated Necrotic & Mystic Orb abilities (Thx to Parth for reporting this).

  • Code cleanup and small fixes

Version 0.4.15
  • Added a few Updates to abilities recently introduced or changed. Thanks to LiquidPony and iiJonno for reporting them.

Version 0.4.7
  • API Bump to Murkmire (100025)

  • Fixed two issues that would throw an error in some cases.

Version 0.4.0
  • Added crit damage done and penetration to the values retrieved from Combat Metrics on import.
  • Added button to reset detailed penetration data which is used after import from Combat Metrics

Retested this a few hours ago btw.

I can't say it's a great addon unless i'm assured it's assigning cp correctly. If it's using the incorrect data from the spreadsheet it's completely useless to me.
I just looked over Destruction Staff abilities and don't see an issue there, what are you pointing at?
I can have a look at Sorc abilities.

I still have to go trough the monster sets. Force pulse should work though. Is it rank 4? Because for now there is only support for rank 4 abilities.

Everything is max level. Got these ID's in chat. Might be a component of Force Pulse, instead of the main damage tick.

48997 Force Pulse
80525 Ilambris
80526 Ilambris
Of course ! Forgot about the splash damage . Gonna test this soon along with all the monster sets.

Also which spreadsheet are you referring to ? Is it updated for Morrowind ?
ty! I updated and added to the spreadsheet so it's possible I missed something but Thematurge 75 to 76 damage increase is very low compared to Elfborn 40 to 41 damage increase for example.
Can you link the spreadsheet?
It's a mess. I'll try to clean it up and post it somewhere.

I'll have a look.

That being said you don't need to limit the max really. It will consider using 75 points along with other options.
I have found that often it is better to actually use 81 (the next jump point)
Thank you. Asayre's spreadsheet indicates diminishing returns above 75, compared to adding those extra points into Elfborn or Elemental. The delta increase in damage from 75 to 76 is very small compared to adding another point into either Elfborn or Elemental. Am I missing something?

For example, 5.10% is truncated to 5 and 5.98% is truncated to 5. This means that the actual percentage benefit only increaes when the integer portion of the percentage value changes.
The ratios need to be taken from some combat addon. You need to know which fraction of your overall damage was done by Dots and which ones by Direct Damage and so on. This requires quite a bit of understanding of the game, so the easier option is to use Combat Metrics and import directly from there. I guess I'll work on an extended description, but the tooltips should give you an idea already.

Constellations takes jumppoints of the Champion Points into account. So it knows that all the fractions must be ignored. It even knows the real value so even when the tooltip shows 19.00 but in reality is 18.997 (a mistake that Zenimax made) it correctly assigns 18 and not 19.

Post Constellation - Instructions For Use

On the first tab in Constellations you need to enter the ratios of the various types of Damage you cause.
What are these "ratios" and how do I find out what their respective values are?

Does Constellations take into account that, in the combat calculations, all decimal fractions are now "floored" (truncated) to the integer value for the respective stars that have percentages? For example, 5.10% is truncated to 5 and 5.98% is truncated to 5. This means that the actual percentage benefit only increaes when the integer portion of the percentage value changes.

You can use the mouse wheel together with shift and/or ctrl key. But entering it would probably be easier. I'll have a look at it.

Ok this time totally understood ) thanks for explaining

So this is may be the reason why in Combat Metrics one of those had an asterix beside its name.

So what you mean is before they reach rank 4, do not bother to post here the reference, but once they reach rank 4 do it ? (i am not playing stupid i guess my french english is getting a wall right now lol)

Thanks
It's fine to post them, I will eventually implement them. The thing is I can't get those skills easily since on PTS It's usually rank 4 or I need to start playing all kinds of classes - don't have time for that .

I wish I could automate this somehow, but the example you posted below is actually quite good. Two Damage Components but same name. One is the initial hit, the other one is the DoT. WIth a bit of work I can figure out which it is and implement it on the basis that it has the porperties as the rank 4 ability, but sometimes I can't. In that case it would be cool if someone could point out which id is which.
