Test all Bags & Bank Gear and Find the Best in Slot Combination using Simulationcraft

This is World of Warcraft Guide in Optimizing Gear with the Help of this Python Script named "AutoSimC", SimulationCraft & SimPermut Addon. This is done by using all the bags and bank pieces, putting them into simulation, and finding the best performing gear from it all on Auto-Pilot.

One Way of Learning How to do it, is watching this Video:

Another Way is reading through this quick text guide and try to follow it.
For More detailed information and how stuffs are done properly, I would still recommend either checking the documentation on the links or watching the video

Anyway lets go!

1. Download AutoSimc, SimulationCraft, SimPermut (addon) & Python (Links Below) and Install them on your PC:

2. Unzip AutoSimC into "C:" drive directly, without any folder in between.

3. Find the Python.exe & Simc.exe path & Save them for later in Notepad.
  • - Default Python Path: C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\python.exe - Where [yourusername] is the username u use to login in to the Windows and Python36 being the Version of Python.
  • - Default Simcraft Path: C:\Simulationcraft(x64)\730-03\simc.exe
  • - Notice: I have instructions in the video, how to find the path of Python and SimulationCraft in detail, if you struggle.

4. Install Notepad++ or SublimeText (or other coding text editor). Notepad will do the trick, but it's messy to edit programming codes with it.

5. Coding Launch.bat

  • - Open AutoSimC-master folder, and right click "Launch.bat". Press Open With: Notepad++ or Sublime Text.
  • - Delete Everything after "@echo off" up to "REM For legendary permutations in command line, use this command :"
  • - After "@echo off" add the Python Path that I asked you to save before, and in the same line add: " -i input.txt -o out.simc -quiet -sim stage1" (without the quotes"")
  • - It should look similar to this: 
  • @echo off
  • C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37 -i input.txt -o out.simc -quiet -sim stage1
  • REM For legendary permutations in command line, use this command :
  • REM python -i settings.ini -o out.simc -l "leg1|id|bonus|enchant|gem,leg2|id2|bonus2|enchant2|gem2" 0:2

<- and="" br="" check="" click="" confirmation="" for="" ight="" image="" in="" link="" new="" open="" tab="" the="">
6. Coding
  • - Open from the AutoSimC-master folder with Notepad++ or Sublime.
  • - Replace simc_path = 'C:\\Simulationcraft(x64)\\730-03\\simc.exe' with your SimulationCraft path, that I've asked you save before.
  • - Change the SimulationCraft path from this: C:\Simulationcraft(x64)\730-03\simc.exe into this: 'C:\\Simulationcraft(x64)\\730-03\\simc.exe' - basically just add extra "" everywhere you see it and add single quotes at the start and at the end ''.
  • - While here, I would suggest to Change the "auto_download_simc = True" into "auto_download_simc = False"
  • - You have other settings that you can mess around in the file, I have explained some of them in the video, but for most of them I would suggest to not mess with.

7. If the addon SimPermut is Installed, then launch the game.
  • - Type /simpermut in game and select all the gear you want to run through the simulation in order to pick which one is best.
  • - Press AutoSim Export button.
  • - Copy the Text on the Right Side
  • - Go into AutoSimC-master folder in "C:" and Remove everything in the Input.txt file, paste the text from the game and Save it.

8. Running the Simulation
  • - Run "Launch.bat" from the AutoSimC-master folder.
  • - If you got asked about "Re-generate the out.simc file" press "y" on the keyboard and Enter.
  • - Then you can choose between Fixed and Dinamic Mode by typing "1" or "2" on your Keyboard, and pressing "Enter" (I suggest you dynamic)
  • - Then you can select what error you are targeting. Anything between 0.5% - 1% should be fine, but if it takes really long time, then go for higher % or lower if it's something you can live with.
  • - When you decide, type the Selection Number (explained what that is in the image) and press Enter.
Check the Image for Confirmation (Right Click the link and Open in New Tab):

- If you have A LOT of Gear Selected you can turn all the applications OFF (Especially if you have SimulationCraft in background) and other CPU / RAM using apps, and go to sleep... or to vacation... or something

That's It!

If you have any questions, please, do not hesitate to ask in the forums or in the video comments... I am sure other people will want to know the answers too, and If no one else will... I will do my best to answer, if it's possible!

Hope this helps!
