EP Values not calculating properly?

Jan 22, 2011 at 2:41 AM

Hello,

I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this, I wasn't able to find it elsewhere and the documentation section is just a white page for me.  Anyway, I'm new to EnhSim and from what I've read, EP values are calculated by simulating the DPS for the baseline, then adding the stat by the quantity in the EP Range, and simulating again.  However, my results are rather peculiar because adding 100 haste rating is causing me to lose about 449 DPS, resulting in an EP value of -7.26.  I can't really grasp conceptually why an EP would ever be negative, other than minor variance in the simulation on stats such as mana or mp5 which show for me as -0.02 and -0.22 respectively.  

However, I also did the simulation by simply adding 1% to both my melee haste and spell haste (not the same EP Range of 100, I know) and by DPS went up by ~40 points.

So, where's the breakdown?  Am I misunderstanding something or is this a bug?
