Questionably Epic Live

Note: QE Live has been updated to version 2.7 and Holy Priest has entered beta testing. You can read a full list of changes below.

Questionably Epic Live

Spec spreadsheets are a valuable resource and often the only way to find out what your best Azerite Traits or trinkets are. The problem is that they take time to setup and it’s difficult to make them user friendly. Questionably Epic Live adds an intuitive user interface to spec spreadsheets like Twig It and Teachings of the Red Crane. It runs the same calculations and will give you the same accurate answers in half the time.

 

QE Live is still in beta and is designed for Desktop browsers. Find instructions below. 

Supported Specs: Resto Druid, Mistweaver Monk, Holy Paladin.

 

What does it do?

QE Live lets you compare Azerite Pieces and trinkets so that you can optimize your gear for raid. It’s quick, easy and you’ll have your answer in less than a minute. Run it while your raid clears trash, while you wait for your tank to get back from their third bio break this raid, or while your raid leader discusses boss strategy. This is not a “healing simulation”. The tool uses your own fight data (if you input logs), or a big set of default logs (if you choose not to). QE Live is accurate, fast, free and all yours.

 

Features

  • Best in Bags: Compare all Azerite items in your bags at once and let QE Live find your best combination of traits.
  • Residuum Roller: Equip your best set and then find out which token you should spend your residuum on. Includes your odds of getting an upgrade and a breakdown of the power increase you can expect.
  • Compare Trinkets: Find your best trinket combo for raid or mythic+.

 

Upcoming Features

  • Suggest Upgrade: Let the app scan your gear and tell you where you should be looking for your next big upgrade.
  • Support for other healing and / or tank specs: Three specs are in. Holy Priest is now available to Diamond+ patrons and beta testers. 
  • SimC Addon Support: So you can import all of your items at once.

 

How do I use it?

QE Live is hopefully easy to just pick up and use but there’s a quick-guide as a reference here and a full FAQ here. The app stores to your browsers local storage so if you clear it you’ll have to recreate your characters.

 

Recent Changes

19 March – QE Live 2.7

New Spec: Holy Priest

  • Available now to Diamond / RR patrons and beta testers. Live for all from 26 March.

 

Usability Improvements

  • Mousing over an Azerite Trait now displays its name.
  • The trinket compare will now automatically show one or two winners depending on how many trinkets have been selected. The “pick two trinkets” checkbox is now redundant and has been removed.
  • If you have no items equipped to your profile then the “Equipped” section in the Top Five report will now correctly hide.
  • Improved support for non-English characters in Player names and realms.

 

Also

  • The “Balanced Catweave” and “Damage Focused” Mythic+ optimizations are now available to all users.
  • Savior has been re-evaluated with new data. Its score will go down in all cases.
  • Zandalari Troll and Kul Tiran added as Druid and Monk races.
  • Available character slots increased to four.
  • Typo: Incandescent Sliver is now correctly named.

12 March - QE Live 2.6

New Feature: Optimizations.

  • Compare gear for specific purposes across Best in Bags and the Residuum Roller. This lets you differentiate between two vastly different builds (in the case of Paladin) or playstyles (in the case of Catweaving).
  • Resto Druid M+ (Diamond / RR Patron only for a week): Healing Focused, Balanced Catweave, Damage Focused
  • Holy Paladin: Standard, Glimmer of Light Paladin

Unlocked Feature: “Top Five”.

  • This shows you what your top five choices are when you’re running a Best in Bags comparison, so that you have some context on which combos were close and how big an upgrade the picked traits are over what you’re currently wearing.
  • Particularly useful for telling your raid leader how big an upgrade a piece is.

Also

  • Increased the size of the app. This was necessary for future feature development and has a number of other benefits across all modules.
  • Bonded Souls nerfed by 40% to match the 8.1.5 change.
  • Rolls Royce Patrons can now compare up to eight trinkets at a time because more is always better.
  • Speed across the app increased for Patrons by a further 5-20%.
  • Residuum Roller: Now shows up to five items per slot.
  • Holy Paladin: Added Lights Decree.
  • Fix: Breastplate of Arterial Protection and Gore-Splattered Vest are now available at 370 item level.

27 February - QE Live 2.5

Added the Residuum Roller.

  • The RR lets you compare your odds of getting an upgrade in each slot so you can best spend your Azerite tokens.
  • It bases the selection off the gear you have equipped in your in-app profile so make sure it’s up to date before you run it.
  • This is a beta feature and while it’s tested well I can’t guarantee perfect accuracy for a few days.

Also

  • Updated the default set of logs for all specs. If you enter your own logs then you won’t notice a change but those who go without might notice their traits shuffle slightly.
  • Updated the formulas for Resounding Protection and Self Reliance to more closely follow any logs entered.
  • Druids are now benefit from the extra healing to Yseras Gift that higher item level gear provides through its increased Stamina.

 

Known Issues

  • If the app opens with a gold screen and no buttons then restart your browser.
  • Logs for King Rastakhan bug out. I’m blaming Bwonsamdi for this one. Use a different boss until a fix is in.
