How to Compare Items with simulations

The most popular question right now:  What item is better?

Our item rankings answer that question, and it does so really well if you generated custom weights for your character with our simulator.

But how nice would it be to see the actual damage differences, in addition to the ranking? It would be pretty nice, wouldn’t it. Continue reading

Filters & Gear Lists

There’s a filter icon in the character menu bar. It’s your BFF when it comes to looking at all of the ranked gear lists.

Filters on Ask Mr. Robot

Click that filter icon as shown above. And the filter window pops up, as shown below.

FiltersA-E

These filters control all of your gear lists, from the regular ranked lists, to Best in Slot, to everything in the Upgrade Finder. Continue reading

Get Ready for Emerald Nightmare – FREE!!

This promotion is now over. All new users still get 1 free week so you can Try before you Buy. The trial starts when you click on a premium feature, no credit card is ever asked for during the trial. 

Mr. Robot wants to make sure you are ready for Emerald Nightmare, so he’s making all of his premium features free Monday and Tuesday, Sept 19 and 20.

And we really mean free. No shady credit card tricks, no ploys to get your email and spam you, that’s not how we operate. When we say free, it’s simple. You get to use every premium feature without paying or entering a credit card. You do need an account so we can save settings (which is necessary for some of the features), but we will NEVER email you marketing stuff. Ever. Not even after the free stuff is over.

So like I said, when we say free, we mean it. No catches, no tricks. Continue reading

Combat Log Announcement

We will not be continuing our combat logs for Legion. I’m not saying ‘never’ – but they definitely aren’t on our current plans. Keep your eyes peeled for cool collaboration projects between us and Warcraft Logs.

The types of tools we build

We like to give you tools to optimize your character. The gear optimizer and ranked gear lists are a clear winner. We wanted to build other tools around the gear picture.

So we brought gear into the combat log picture for Warlords of Draenor. As you remember, no one had offered that before (or during the entire expansion).  Continue reading

Legion & The Armory

Patch 7.0 Armory

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:

Important Low Level Items & Ranking Gear

There are a few low level items worth paying attention to as you craft gear and run dungeons. I wanted to point these out before you vendor them in a leveling craze and the made rush to getting raid-ready gear.

 Necklace and Ring

Save all rings & necklaces

Let me quickly explain why. Continue reading

Batch Simulations

Batch simulations are just a fancy way to say ‘lots of combinations of stuff.’ If you want to find the best talents or rank legendaries, there are often hundreds or more of combinations. And if you want to look at legendaries and talents at the same time, whew, that list gets long.

Mr. Robot does all of this for you, automatically. You tell him what you want to compare and he’ll make the combinations for you, test them out, and rank them according to their DPS.

You get a report that can be sorted and customized, and we even give you a downloadable CSV for those of you who love spreadsheets.  Continue reading

A Guide to Identifying the Best Artifact Path

This blog posts answers two big artifact questions: Can I level my offspec artifact and not fall behind? What is the best artifact path?

Let’s start with the first question.

How fast can I get traits in my weapon? Will the offspec put me behind?

If you level fast and do your dailies every day, you’ll have at least 20 traits when raids open. (That’s assuming raids open 3 weeks after launch). And the good news, placing some points in the offspec barely sacrifices anything… at most 1 day, all the way to your full 54 point artifact. Yeah, really!

You can take a look at the data yourself, thanks to the work the Kib did on his spreadsheet. Note that this data is the minimum you’ll have if you do all activities, as it doesn’t account for drops from mobs or rares that give Artifact Power.

Here’s a timeline I put together based on his data (click for full size). Continue reading

Demon Hunters & Legion Support

“Why can’t I load my Demon Hunter on the site?”

We have support for Havoc on the beta site, where you can play with gear and get DPS numbers. It’s pretty easy to do, and completely free! Vengeance will have to wait a little big longer though.

As always, we’ll have full support by the time the expansion launches (we’ve never missed an expansion deadline yet!) There are just 3 of us working on the whole site, so sometimes we need these last few days and weeks to iron out all of the bugs and finishing touches before we go live.

We have a whole new site upgrade that we’re launching with Legion. The backend code is all new and shiny. Some new feature improvements are coming too (like even easier flows to Best in Bags). But the final site isn’t quite ready yet, so it hasn’t been pushed live.

So I ask on Mr. Robot’s behalf, if you can hang in just a tiny bit longer, he’ll have full gear-optimization support for both Demon Hunter specs by Legion launch, promise! And in return, he will hand-polish all of your armor for launch as well. Pinky swear! Continue reading
