ReforgeLite is a lightweight reforging calculator that helps you figure out the optimal strategy to reforge your gear given your stat weights and caps without leaving the game.
How to use it
To open the addon window, type /reforge or talk to the reforging master. On the left half of the window you can see your current item stats for reference.
On the right side you can set up stat weights/caps, or select an existing preset.
You can select up to two capped stats (e.g. hit rating and expertise rating). For each stat, you can select an arbitrary number of threshold values which change the weight of the stat once it passes this value. You can either set the threshold value manually, or use a preset (e.g. melee hit cap). You can also force the stat value to be above or below the treshold.
Alternatively, you can uncheck the "Specify weights" box and set up stat priorities via a more intuitive interface. Again, you can only have two capped stats - e.g. if you specify limits for hit and expertise, setting limits for haste will have no effect.
When you're done setting up weights/caps, press Calculate. Since it might take too much time (and run out of memory due to Lua limitations), it might trade some precision for speed, but the loss should be minimal. You can click the Calculate button several times to achieve the best result.
Once the calculation finishes, you will see a section with your stats after reforging, and the difference from your current stats. Click on the Show button to see which items should be reforged. Items that you have already reforged in the suggested way will have checks next to them; you can check some items manually if you do not wish to reforge them.
If the reforging UI is open, you can click on the Reforge button to automatically reforge all items in the selected way. Do not interfere in the process (clicking the cancel button or closing the reforging UI is fine). Caution: some users have reported it getting stuck reforging the same item over and over, so it is best to watch the process to avoid losing gold.
- I'm getting wrong results: If you think the results you got are incorrect, first make sure the weights are set up correctly. E.g. if you set mastery higher than crit, don't be surprised that your items are reforged to mastery. If you still think something is wrong, click the Debug button at the bottom of settings, and e-mail the dump to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can find the problem.
