on the right to create a new group containing that item.
– To move an item or group, click on the item (or the group's control bar) and
drag it to the desired position
Holding shift while dragging
an item or group will make a copy of it when it is dropped.
– Items and groups can be deleted by
dragging them out of the row
. Groups may also be deleted by clicking the X on the right side of the group's control bar.
Deleting all but one group
Holding shift while deleting a group
(see above) will cause all other groups to be deleted instead of that one.
Splitting a group

on the group's control bar. This will create a new group for each item in the current group.

You can select your desired character level from the dropdown at the top left. When you do, all the statistics that change according to your level (including combat ratings and heirloom item stats) will automatically adjust to the corresponding value for the level you've entered.

For example, the minimum stamina for any group in

Basically, the gains row removes the shared stats between all groups so that you can focus on what each group brings to the table.
Setting a focus group is done by clicking on the eye icon in the group's control bar. Selecting a group as your focus will update the display of the item comparison to show the difference in stats between all other groups and the focus group.
When a focus is set, the focus group is highlighted and each other group has numbers that indicate the stats gained or lost in comparison to the focus group.
numbers indicate that group has a higher total for a given stat than the focus group, while
numbers indicate that group has a lower total for a given stat than the focus group.
To add a weight scale to your comparison, click on the
