Who doesn’t love being right, honestly?! Mr. Robot takes a lot of pride in his work and he knows that providing tools with data errors will confuse his human friends. Or worse, it might frustrate them enough to cause a revolt, and Mr. Robot really doesn’t want to DIAF!
Mr. Robot has gotten a lot of love mail begging to release the tool asap. He apologizes for launching slower than expected, but it’s because he had to get the item data himself (and the help of a few trustworthy humans). The current databases have a lot of wrong information, missing items and things are just categorized wrong: some items show up as craftable when they aren’t, others supposedly drop form 1,000 different vendors… ORLY??
We originally intended to rely on these databases like we did for WoW, but since the data is not up to Mr. Robot’s standards, he has spent hours and hours (more like days and days) in game going from vendor to vendor to gather item location information. He’s been verifying which items have removable enhancements, and which ones don’t. He’s cracked the code on craftable items. He’s still working out some theories on random items. And he got a LOT of help from Dulfy on Flahspoint and Operation items.
All of this work, btw, has slowed his leveling. Poor Mr. Robot is only level 35… sure he could hack in and make himself 50, but the class quests are SO MUCH FUN!
Anyway, Mr. Robot will have another version of the alpha coming out soon. He’d like some help from detail-oriented and trustworthy humans to verify his item information. If you’re up for the gig, leave a comment, and let us know your class, level, faction, and if you do a lot of PVE or PVP content.
