Mr. Robot knows you have a lot of shiny gear in your bags, and he wants to make sure you equip the right stuff.
- Install our desktop application & mod that scans your bags and bank. Then upload the file to our site. (Get the Mod on Curse!)
- Mr. Robot will find the best set from items in your bags. It’s similar to a BiS list… so we call it BiB (Best in Bags).
- This is very handy for offspecs! Are you a tank? Find your best DPS set. You can even lock in your tank items so Mr. Robot doesn’t try to reforge them on you
How to get started:
First, you’ll need to set up your bags. Click the “Manage Bags” icon and download the desktop client. The client is an application that runs on your computer, and looks for changes to AskMrRobot.lua (or get it on Curse). If you need help installing the mod, read these instructions.
Click the big green “Find Best in Bags” button to see your results. Mr. Robot will not only find the best items, but he’ll reforge, gem, and enchant them for you too. If you get a new item while raiding – reupload your gear. Mr. Robot will find you a new BiB set, and tell you how to optimize your new item. That means you can gem it on the spot with the best gem right away. Too bad you’ll have to wait to reforge it until you get to town.
Let Mr. Robot suggest your best OFF SPEC set too!
This is handy. Really handy. First, you need to switch to your offspec (click the spec icon to change it). Then, click the big green “Find Best in Bags” button. The first thing you’ll see is that you probably have a lot of the best items already equipped, and then Mr. Robot wants to regem and re-reforge ALL of them. DON’T PANIC!
You can lock your main spec items that you don’t want to be putzed with. Mr. Robot saves these on a per-spec basis. So you want to leave your Main-Hand-Sword-of-Amazingness UNLOCKED on your main spec (so Mr. Robot can suggest optimizations), but LOCK IT on your OFFSPEC (so Mr. Robot doesn’t go changing things… and causing you to go broke).
When you lock an item, 1 of 2 things will happen. If it’s still the best item for your offspec, even without new gems or reforges, Mr. Robot will tell you to keep it equipped. However, if you have another weapon in your bag and Mr. Robot can re-gem and re-reforge it, he might tell you to equip it and make the necessary changes. He’ll determine which option is better
Once you switch to your offspec. Click on the item in the gear list that you don’t want changed. It will bring up the list of items you have in your bags & bank for that slot. Lock the item(s) you don’t want changed. You can also choose to ‘lock all’ gear that you have equipped.
That’s all folks!
If you have other creative uses, share them! If you have questions, let us know. We’re here to help, and to keep you optimized.
