Hey, so i looked around and couldn't find anything like this. It would of been alot more useful months ago with the new content so close but maybe would still be.
With addons like gear rating, it would be relatively easy to collect a list oh gear ratings for the entire raid instantly and convert it into a seating chart from Vehicles at the start of uld (for pugs especially, less faffing around, more killing).
just have the addon recognise the tanks, put them in the siege.. 2 lowest ratings in the guns, next 2 lowest in the bikes etc.. then it would just print out list of vehicles and who is going in them. could especially saved time for 25 man runs. seen 20 odd mins wasted because of new people joing raids etc..
Well, considering Ive never heard of anyone arranging seats in the manner you describe, Id guess that any such addon would have to be specialized to your guilds strategy.
A much simpler solution would be to get an addon that shows you everyones average item level (such as AvgItemLevel) and just go by that.
Note that gear score type addons dont necessarily do the same thing those addons actually rate your gear by its suitability for your class and spec, and consider stats, gems, enchants, etc. WoW doesnt care about any of those things for vehicle scaling. If youre a warrior, putting on a spell power weapon with a higher item level than your normal weapon will give you a more powerful vehicle, but generally a lower gear score.
Yeah, the tanks auto-seating in siege engines part kind of gets me... What if the tank's average iLvl is the highest in the raid? Wouldn't you want that scaling going to a demolisher for rolling pyrite stacks? I know I've done it for that very reason a few times when we're running alts and such, or running with lesser geared guild members.
