This takes your current Buffs/Debuffs and gives you a GearScore based on it.

I agree that players abilities are far too complex with numerous variables that can't really be summed up to a simple number accurately, but it is only designed as a rough guide. It would be better if you could quickly check enemy players and compare scores with your own score to give you a rough idea of how much chance you're likely to stand in a 1 on 1 fight against them, but the score would have to take into account a lot more than just equipment and buffs to calculate this. This would be a lot more useful as if you were both on level 50 and your enemy showed a much higher score than you before a fight starts, you may decide to avoid confrontation if possible, but if your score was much higher, you may decide to attack. Anyway, well done to the author for attempting to produce one of the first few addons for Rift.
Gearscore is a terrible addon and quite useless. Rift isn't simple enough to just place a number on a character to represent how good they are. There are just too many variables.
