SimulationCraft is an fan created external tool designed to simulate raid DPS and TPS (threat or aggro).

Description Edit

Here is the description from the Google Code project site:

SimulationCraft is a tool to explore combat mechanics in the popular MMO RPG World of Warcraft (tm).

It is a multi-player event driven simulator written in C++ that models raid damage and threat generation.

Increasing class synergy and the prevalence of proc-based combat modifiers have eroded the accuracy of traditional calculators that rely upon closed-form approximations to model very complex mechanics. The goal of this simulator is to close the accuracy gap while maintaining a performance level high enough to calculate relative stat weights to aid gear selection.

SimulationCraft allows raid/party creation of arbitrary size, generating detailed reports for both individual and raid performance. Currently, it is a command-line tool in which the player profiles are specified via parameter files.

WoW Simcraft Edit

WoW Simcraft is a website that runs a simulationcraft instance on its servers so you don't have to download the application. WoW Simcraft only has a limited set of features so you will still need to use simulationcraft proper to do anything non-standard.
