@embobo......
You'd be surprised how often simple observation can catch things others miss. Like the push to blood DK for tanking.... it started off with observation and a few basic ideas/assumptions. The math followed later. And even then, a lot of the intial math wasn't done with an addon, it was done with the basic info regarding how the abilities worked. Eventually it became a thing of "simcraft", like determining mastery to be superior as a stat, or determining specific "caps" or targets for dps classes to aim for.

The dev that's looking at code and a ton of other things can benefit from the guinea pig (us) running his maze a few times and breaking their stuff..... like a rat eating a hole in the maze wall to get at the cheese.
