I also like this site: https://www.light.gg/god-roll/roll-appraiser/

Thanks both of you for posting these. I find the UI in the first one to be kind of clunky, I guess you need to know exactly what you are looking for to get the most out of it.

As far as the second one, I've never used this particular feature on light.gg before but it seems very useful to examine what you already have.

It is mildly hilarious the mixed messaging that comes out of it though--I apparently have a False Promises that is a God Roll in every single box but it is rated D, and if I choose two of the non-God Roll perks, it goes to B-. After poking around a little more, the filters section is also rather confusing...

Your guess is correct. It is a less automated tool, but I've found it useful to figure out various things. A Battle Abacus*, if you will. I'll speak more of it in a moment.

I do hope that all of us here were already aware of light.gg, which is pretty much THE site for cataloging all the loot within this game. Before I found https://d2gunsmith.com/, I was using light.gg to figure out my loot goals. That said, while Kermit may find it useful, I can't recommend their "godroll roll appraiser" at all. First of all, their "grades" are arbitrarily based on community feedback between what is selected in the moment, "Equipped Grade", and overall perk wise, "Best Possable Grade". It is not averaged and perk combinations are not considered. It's... harsh and blunt and honestly not very intelligent. As such... I have a bunch of fantastic rolls weapons with "low grades" because the Meta is god I suppose. I believe my exact phrasing in seeing this system in action was "eat my ass".

Here let me show you the weapon that really drove home for me how dumb this system is.


How does this make any sense at all? It's a God Roll, with perks that are excellent, that honesty are even better on a bow. SYMPATHETIC ARSENAL on a bow is FANTASTIC! Best grade possible is a C? How? Why? ... it's just Awful. I can only imagine how many more casual folks would use this resource and just shard FANTASTIC kit because... oh this is only an F or a C Grade. I... I just... I don't like it.

Before we move on, here let me show you a "Non-Godroll"...


This Weapon is FAN FREEK'N'TASTIC. Best thing with this roll is that I can swich between Extended Range or Stability. I call it my Legendary Hawkmoon, because it is. But it's not a God Roll? F- to boot? Pshhhh. This site can eat my ass.

So... with that said, let me tell you about Gunsmith. First here is a picture I took FOR SOME REASON ooOOooOoo... from a site called https://www.d2checklist.com/ (which is a fantastic D.I.M Alternative that isn't as powerful).


Alright... so here is a question for ya what is the Highest possible Range for LAST PERDITION? And if you do that, how much does that effect stability? Or... hey, it's a Pulse, range isn't the issue, let's have say... reload be the focus. What then? What would that look like? Before hand I'd have to click that link I've added in it's name, and had to do that math manually. Now, I just click some buttons and that math shows it's self visually.

By the way, best Range possible on this weapon is 68 without a Masterwork (which pushes it to 77), with a stability of 72. Not bad. Reload speed is 48. Push the reload instead and ... I can make it 84 with masterwork, but the best possible range becomes 59. It's ok, but I'm not sure it's worth the tradeoff.

See? Very useful and it saves time (that I could be using playing the game). Figuring out this sort of thing helps with making a call on what to keep or shard. At least, I think so, hence the post. :)

*Battle Abacus sounds like a perk or a weapon or I don't know... but it's SOMETHING.
