Is your character not updating? Or is your artifact not loading?
The armory usually takes a bit to update when expansions hit. That means there are currently some armory artifact loading issues.
No worries! You can use our addon to update your character.
How to use our in-game addon to update your character:
All steps are part of the FREE site. No need to subscribe.
1 – Update the Ask Mr. Robot addon. Don’t have it? Get it from Curse.
2 – Optional: activate each spec one time, in game (this lets the addon read everything for each spec if you’re already playing multiple specs).
3 – Open your artifact weapon as if you were spending points in it. This lets the addon pick up any points you’ve spent.
4 – Then open the Mr. Robot addon (click on the minimap icon or type /amr show). Go to the “Export” tab in the addon. Copy the text in the box on that screen.
5 – Go to the Ask Mr. Robot website. Click on your character’s name to open the character picker. Paste the text in the addon section, as shown below.
6 – After you paste it, your character automatically loads with all the right gear.
Best in Bags
You can also use that text string to have Mr. Robot find the best gear in your bags, so you are always equipped with the best stuff while leveling. Just scroll down on the character page and follow the instructions!
Kicking the API into gear
Sometimes when the armory has issues, the API gets ‘stuck’ on some characters. One way to jumpstart the API again is to login to WoW. Change something on your character, like a piece of gear, etc. Logout. That sometimes forces an update for your character on the blizzard API. Also, since this is untested, it’s possible we have to update something on our end. I will update this post as we find things.
