Legion Pre Patch 7.0

The site will be updated Tuesday around 10am PST, while the Warcraft servers are down.

Character updates

It’s possible that characters won’t update correctly from the armory. We are unable to test those changes until Blizzard updates their site. It’s possible something changed in the API that we need to modify on our end. It’s possible the armory lags. Either way, we have a workaround for you! You need to get our updated addon  – look for version 38 (after 10am PST). Instructions to update your character from the addon can be found here.

Stat weights

No one really knows what they should be for the Legion pre patch. The class changes are still in flux, and people are still figuring out the best ways to play with the new talents and changes to abilities. Since none of this is solid, all stat weights you see people post are best guesses.

If you want to change the default ones we have, click on the edit button next to the stat weights and have fun! Mr. Robot will suggest new gear based on any set of weights you give him.

We suggest using the Legion pre patch to experiment with all of the changes to your class, and not stress about being perfect out of the gate. And by experimenting now, you’ll have a better handle on your spec when Legion launches.  Continue reading

Share your Legion APL / Rotation

We’ve made it easier for you to share any Legion APL / rotation. You can also ‘subscribe’ to someone’s rotation and get all of their updates automatically.

You might see people asking for a Legion APL for their class. APL stands for “Action Priority List” – basically a spell rotation. Simulators use an APL (rotation) to mimic a boss fight and estimate your dps. But not everyone plays the same, so we want to get more people involved in making rotations for Legion. Share them with friends, post in forums to collaborate in making one better, the list goes on.

Let’s say Zoopercat makes a rotation and wants to share it with a few people. She clicks the share button, gets a link, and posts it in the guild forums (or on discord).  Let’s say Yellowfive clicks on the link – he can see the rotation that Zoopercat made. If he wants, he can click “Add to List” so the rotation shows up in the drop down menu when setting up a simulation. And that’s not all! Anytime Zoopercat updates that rotation, it’s automatically updated for Yellowfive too!

Share Legion APL / Rotations Share Legion APL / RotationsUse a shared Legion APL / Rotation

Suggestions on Sharing your Legion APL / Rotation

  • Make a descriptive name – when people click on the link, they will see the name of your rotation and know what it is for.
  • “In Development” / WIP names – if you want to share or collaborate on rotations, it might be a good idea to put “Dev” or “WIP” (work in progress) in the name. That way people know it isn’t perfect yet. And they might make a copy and play with it too. Example: Zoops Balance WIP
  • Release names – you can also make a release version. This could be updated with the latest theories that test out. Sure, it might not be optimal yet, but as you update it, it will get better and better. Example: Zoops Balance Release

How to Gear Alts in WoD

Gear alts in WoD

What activities should I do to gear alts in WoD?

So you want to find a fast & efficient way to gear alts in WoD, while we wait for Legion to drop, right? The fastest way to gear your alt depends on what you are willing to do (and what your friends are willing to carry you through). Atls are supposed to be fun, so let’s find you the most fun (and efficient) ways to gear your alt! Did you know you can even get PvP gear without ever PvP’ing? It’s true! Below I show you how to use gear filters to find the most appropriate gear for your desired activities 🙂

So what’s the best way to find the right gear?

The magic is in the gear filters… a lot of power lies behind that little blue circular PLUS sign! After loading your character, click on any item to bring up the gear list for that slot. Then click the blue “+” button just above the gear list, on the left, to open the filters menu (shown below). How to gear alts

Set the filters to the WoD activities you are willing to do to gear up your alt. Mr. Robot will then remove any of the gear that isn’t relevant to you.Gear alts WoD filters A few notes & tips, current for WoD patch 6.2.3:

  • A: Set the raid difficulty to the levels you’ll be doing to gear up your alt (not where you intend to be after gearing up). If you don’t want to do LFRs, then either uncheck the raids you won’t be doing at all, or set it to normal (or whatever your friends will carry you through).
  • B: Don’t forget world bosses!
  • C: Set the part of the legendary ring progress you’re on, or will be getting soon
  • D: Old Apexis Crystal items can now be bought with gold. 1000 Gold buys you 630 iLevel and it goes up to 20,000 gold for iLevel 675. The vendors are found in Warspear and their names all start with dawn-seeker. World of Moudi has a guide on this (and Baleful items).
  • E: Crafted items start at level 640 and can be upgraded to stage 4 ‘cheaply’ with items made by each item’s crafting profession. Truesteel Essence is the example for Blacksmiths, which costs 15 Savage Blood among other items. Mighty Essence upgrades to level 5 and uses 30 Felblight. Savage Essence upgrades to level 6 and uses 60 Felblight. World of Moudi has a nice guide for crafted upgrades and obtaining Felblight.
    NOTE: Recall that the secondary stats on crafted items are random. You can reroll them with an item made by each profession, and they are cheap (Blacksmithing, Leatherworking, Tailoring, Jewelcrafting). So if you might have the item for a while and you’re upgrading it, a few rerolls might be worth it.
  • F: BoE gear is for stuff that can be bought off the AH. The filters let you select item levels that are associated with each instance. So maybe you don’t want to buy HFC drops, but you are willing to buy Highmaul BoE drops. Select that here.
  • G: Mythic dungeon items start at 695 but have a chance to have a higher iLevel. The higher the iLevel, the lower the chance. So for planning purposes, you might want to select the lowest iLevel, if you don’t want to count on higher iLevel items dropping.
  • H: Baleful items can drop from mobs in Tanaan Jungle, with a higher chance from rare in Tanaan and are BoP. You can also buy them from a vendor (Ravenspeaker Thelnaas in Tanaan) with Apexis crystals (BoP) for 5,000 Apexis Crystals (10,000 for weapons). You can get BoA Baleful tokens from shipyard missions and “Call to Arms” (see super tips below for mor info). Baleful items have a base item level of 650, but there’s a chance they proc to a higher ilevel when opened. You can upgrade any Baleful item to 695 with an Empowered Apexis Fragment. You can buy this from the same vendor for 20,000 Apexis crystals and it also has a 10-15% drop rate from “Call to Arms” satchels (the reward from queuing for dungeons/raids for the underrepresented role like tanks/healers).
    Note: The secondary stats on these items are random, and cannot be rerolled. The only way to get an item with better stats is to get more of the Baleful tokens from mobs or the vendor.
    Super tip #1: The Empowered Apexis Fragment is BoA, so you can farm Apexis Crystals on your main, buy the fragments, and send them to your alt.
    Super tip #2: You can also get Baleful gear tokens from shipyard missions, which are actually BoA. So you can send it to any alt that wears the armory type specified.
    Super tip #3 comes from @TheSlickRock on Twitter: You can also get BoA Baleful tokens when doing “Call to Arms” on your main – and people have reported that each satchel tends to contain several BoA Baleful Tokens. Call to Arms is the extra reward you get from queuing for dungeons and raids on the much-needed role (like tanks / healers). However, “Call to Arms” can double up on rewards if you run them on your alt instead of your main, because you can also collect legendary ring requirements at the same time.
  • More info! The Grumpy Elf has a fantastic guide aimed at people somewhat unfamiliar with all of the in’s & out’s of Baleful items. Also, the first 2 super tips are credited to him.
  • I: Miscellaneous other stuff
  • PvP options even if you hate it! Thanks to @Volstatsz and @Uabtodd on twitter, I learned that you can get a lot of good gear from PvP, even without PvPing. You can buy Champion’s Honor tokens on the AH which give you 1,000 honor and 1,000 conquest points. A spot check on a few realms makes it look like the average price for a Honor token is 10,000 gold. Items cost 1,250 – 3,500 Honor or Conquest points from vendors in Ashran (Marshal Karsh(A)/Warlord Noktyn(H) and Marshal Gabriel(A)/General Aevd(H).  Remember, the PvP gear for Warlords has the same stat allocation as PvE gear, so you aren’t losing anything.
    –And if you like to PvP, this is an excellent way to gear up, especially if you take advantage of a bonus weekend. Thanks to FloppyFox on reddit, for reminding us that PvP gear cannot be upgraded with Valor.
  • Also, boosted characters automatically get a 640 gear set and level 3 garrison. Thanks for the tip, @Elkagorasa.

Call to Arms: a 4-for-1 source to gear up alts in WoD

The tips above that mention using “Call to Arms” to gear up warrants a summary. “Call to Arms” is the quest you get when queuing for Dungeons and raids as an underrepresented role (like healers/tanks). The reward satchel usually contains:

  • Several BoA Baleful tokens (level 650 gear or higher)
  • 10-15% chance for an Empowered Apexis Fragment to upgrade a Baleful item to 695
  • Gold

And if you are queuing for raids, you can make progress on your legendary ring requirements at the same time. So while the Baleful items and the Apexis Fragments are both BoA, allowing you to farm these on your main to funnel to your alt… doing it on your alt has its rewards too 🙂

There are more filters that I didn’t highlight that will help to gear your alt. When you are done, click the green Apply button.

Gear alt filters

Then when you click on any piece of gear, you’ll see a ranked list of items you can get with your (limited) alt activities.

Save time with the Upgrade Finder

This is premium. For $1 a month, you unlock all of Mr. Robot’s premium features, including all gear lists in the Upgrade Finder. Not a bad price for the time you’ll save, in my opinion, but I’m pretty sure I’m biased 😉  As a 3-person company we do appreciate each premium account, but we still encourage you to give the free trial a shot first to make sure you like it. NO credit card is ever asked for during a free trial, that’s just shady, so we don’t do that.

How to upgrade your alt with the upgrade finder:

The filtered lists that I reviewed above give you a ranked gear list for every activity you’re willing to do. But if you find yourself scanning through that list, looking for a few specific gear sources, then try the Upgrade Finder. Mr. Robot creates a list of the best gear for your character, for each activity you’re willing to do… or about to do. My personal favorite is to find out what dungeons to run.

Load your character, then click the green arrow to open the menu. Select the Upgrade Finder option.

GreenArrow

FindUpgrades

Next, select your activity! Mythic dungeons? Currencies (like Apexis Crystals or Timewarped gear)? Crafted items (you can even select the stage you want). And so on.

UpgradeMenu

Here’s what I see for my character when selecting Mythic Dungeons. The Zone score factors in how many upgrades you can get from that zone, and how good each upgrade is. Alternatively,  the “Best Score” column shows the score for the top ranked item in each dungeon. Upper Blackrock Spire has the best zone score (with a few others being almost as good). And Bloodmaul Slagmines is the worst, so I’d skip that one, and try to find groups for the better ones instead. Note: To see all of the items that will drop (not just the best upgrade), click the ‘view all’ link to the far right of each row.

Mythic dungeon gear list

I then took a look at the 650 Baleful Gear (Apexis) and saw the upgrades were small. But when comparing to the 695 list, there are some very nice upgrades. So I think my main will farm some of the Empowered Apexis Fragments to send to my alt (I also have to hope I get ones with good secondary stats).

Baleful650

Baleful695

Now, off to farming!!! See you around Tanaan Jungle or maybe in some LFR’s 😉

 

 

Find Valor Upgrades

Valor_screen2

Upgrading items with Valor is all about the math – which is Mr. Robot’s specialty. Here’s a few things that affect upgrading, and other things to consider for each ‘factoid.’ Mr. Robot takes all of these things into consideration with his advanced valor upgrading chip.

  • All gear from your bags & bank: As long as you’ve imported your gear in the Best in Bags interface (where you paste text from the addon), Mr. Robot knows what items you own. He’ll rank all of your gear for you, not just the stuff you have equipped.
  • iLevel matters: items with higher iLevels get more stats when you upgrade. Also consider: a lower iLevel with your BEST stats on it might be a better upgrade candidate than a higher iLevel with crappy stats.
  • Slot matters: some item slots have a larger stat budget (like weapons) than other slots. Also consider: a higher iLevel waist (lower stat budget) might be a better upgrade than a lower iLevel head slot (which has a higher stat budget).
  • Trinket effects: Trinket effects usually scale with item level. Mr. Robot knows what effects scale, how they scale, and takes it all into account for you.

Valor_Dec2015

Try it with your character now.

If you like it, you can upgrade for the low price of $1 a month (billed annually to keep transaction costs low, which keeps the price low). Three people help Mr. Robot to make his site awesome, so we appreciate each and every person who upgrades. We know you can choose to spend your $12 elsewhere, so choosing to upgrade means a lot to us.

More than just Valor

Try the other options in the “Find Upgrades” feature. There are a lot of fun things Mr. Robot can help you with. Remember, everyone gets a free trial of the premium features, and we NEVER ask for the credit card when using the free trial (that’s just not cool). If you like the features, you can upgrade for $12 / year. Nice and affordable. And as one user told me, “I appreciated the trial of the premium features and the no bullshit approach. Premium is like an amazing frosting on an already mind blowing cake.”

Help Me Improve!

Compare_Base

It’s that time of the expansion where you know most of the boss fights pretty well. And you spend your time trying to get that perfect set of gear and maximizing your damage (or healing or tanking) output.

And what’s the best way to get better at your class? For me, I like to find someone who’s better than me and see what they are doing differently. This used to be quite hard to do well… you’d go to the top ranked player list, click on someone and see what they were doing. But what if they have the 4pc set bonus, an overpowered trinket, or the legendary ring? OR maybve they might have different talent choices than you to synergize with their gear. Or maybe they killed the boss in only 3 minutes and your team takes 5. You’ve been there… it’s hard to get a good comparison like that.

Optimized Compare Tool

So we solved this problem with a super comprehensive comparison tool earlier this year. I’ve been using it a lot lately! Here’s a few key things Mr. Robot does for you:

  • Finds you players to compare to, automatically (or a specific log if you want that too!)
  • Finds fights with a similar length AND normalizes the data (more on that later)
  • Finds players with similar gear iLevels AND same set bonuses, legendary progress, and trinket levels.
  • Compares gear, talents, glyphs and stats for you

 Finding the Right Player

Go to one of your logs and select the character you want to help improve. Then click the “Comparison” tab to start up Mr. Robot’s player-improvement algorithm. Remember, he will try to find players with similar item levels, same set bonuses, same tier of trinkets, and a similar fight length.

Compare_Intro

 

Comparing Differences & Normalization

Once Mr. Robot helps you find the right player to compare you to, he’ll show you all of the differences is a super-handy, side-by-side comparison. AND he normalizes the data for you.

What exactly IS normalization? Well, let’s say your fight is 240 seconds long (4 minutes). And the player you are comparing to killed the boss in 4:24 (264 seconds). Their fight was 10% longer, so they would be able to use 10% more of each ability (roughly speaking). Mr. Robot normalizes the fight length differences for you in the “Delta” column so that it’s a fair comparison.

Compare_Details

Compare Gear, Talents, Glyphs, and Stats

Maybe someone is doing more damage because they chose different talents? Maybe they are favoring Mastery instead of Haste. Find that out in the gear comparison view. And be sure to have Mr. Robot’s addon installed so your raid leader (or whoever is logging) can collect the exact gear, talents, and glyphs you have at the start of every pull! You don’t have to be the one logging, you just need the addon installed and the logger’s addon will do the rest.

Boss Art Extravaganza

Here’s how this all started: we love the artist community. We’ve hired two fans to work on our logo, and another artist created the class backgrounds for our site. This year we hired two artists to make super cute boss art for each raid. (Thanks to your premium accounts, we are able to put money back into the WoW community!).

The boss art in particular has a lot of people excited. I’ve had about two dozen requests for permission to use it in Youtube videos or guides. Can you use it? Yes, provided you ask us and give credit to Ask Mr. Robot and the artist (@Cadistra or @Ammosart).

Then people started asking for it on tees, so we partnered with d20crit to launch the “My Life is Gruuling” tee. I have it in pink, and they are the SOFTEST, most comfy shirts ever. We partnered with d20crit over other t-shirt companies (like Spreadshirt or Teespring) because they are also a part of the Warcraft community. Among other things, they host a bunch of my favorite podcasts (Hearthcast, Training Dummies, Twisted Nether and a whole lot more). We like to make sure as much money stays as much in the fansite community as possible. This way, our part of the sales help us pay for even more art and d20crit gets to use their share to help support more podcasts.

Recently people started asking for more of the bosses, as well as for us to start putting it on things like pins. That means I have to do all of the photoshopping, pricing, setup, etc. and since Ask Mr. Robot only has three humans working for him, I have to pick and choose my activities carefully. So I ran a survey and it turns out enough people are interested in these extra things that I am going to set some of it up. You can still vote for your favorite boss art. I’m actually pretty excited because I already have a couple of killer designs.

But for all of my ideas, I feel like I only “nailed it!” on a handful. That’s where I’m hoping my wonderful friends and fans can help. So I’ll be running a series of surveys to come up with fun captions for the most popular bosses (as voted for in my first survey). I’ll update this post with results after each survey along with new surveys for more captions.

I think this will be a fun community activity 🙂 Plus, when a cool design is suggested, I can share in the gaggles instead of keeping it all to myself. My first design is below, and it makes me laugh every single time I see it.

BlastFurnace_Disco

Submit & Vote

Now it’s time for the first caption-call. Even if you don’t think you’re clever, stop by to see the ‘theme’ we are thinking of, say hello, then check back for the results. Once I have the first set of results in, they will go up for voting, and whether you are feeling creative or not, we all like a good VOTE!

Weight It Out!

It’s that time of year again, when we update stat weights for the patch. And we have something new to add, that I’m very excited about!

As some of you know, we have a pretty rigorous, programmatic way to make them: we wrote a program that interfaces with our own code and the SimC program. We run a ton of sims to get weights, put those into our site (programmatically), take the gear suggestion, put that back into SimC, run it again… and so on (loop). We look at both single and multi-target fights, various gear levels, with and without set bonuses, and the list goes on. This process uses the default spell rotations that each SimC class moderator enters. The program runs anywhere from 4-12 hours per class (and we do this several times). In fact, my computer is a bit laggy because it’s still running some of the simulations as I type 😉

As far as a programmatic way to get weights, this is pretty rock solid. But we all know that humans can do some creative, smart things when they get involved. Maybe it’s changing up the spell rotation, assessing single vs multi-target fights, or maybe there’s magic involved, who knows! All I know is we have a lot of really smart theorycrafters out there, and Mr. Robot wants to help bring the results of their human brain power to as many people as possible.

We’ll be adding in theorycrafter stat weight presets with this patch. For example, If TheoryJane has awesome mage stat weights, we’ll put them in the stat weight preset menu as “TheoryJane’s Mage Weights.” We like to include little descriptions too, that explain why the stats have been chosen that way.

Here’s a Google spreadsheet where you can submit your stat weights (or your favorite theorycrafter’s stat weights). I’m also looking for a handful of people to help maintain it and keep it up to date. Since there are only 3 humans working on Mr. Robot, we have our hands full. I don’t want to let the stat weights fall behind, so I’m offering some free AMR premium accounts and maybe a Tshirt or two as rewards. If you are interested, leave a comment 🙂

 

Patch 6.2 Mega Gear Summary

GearLevels

As always, Mr. Robot gathered all sorts of gear data for the patch and asked me to share it. The list below starts with the highest iLevels and works its way down. You can browse all 6.2 gear on our site now (trinkets and set bonuses have placeholder estimates. Stat weights are not yet updated).

Viewing gear on AMR

Load your character and play with gear on the character page, Best in Slot, and Optimized views. Note that set bonus and trinket estimates have placeholder values right now. Stat weights are also not updated (but you can get your favorite weights shared from a theorycrafter if you’d like).

GearTutorial

Click the ‘edit weights’ button to the right of your character name to get the controls shown below.

EditWeightsButton

Legendary rings: iLevel 735

Get those rings! It’s a… group on-use, I suppose you could call it. When one person uses it, it procs for everyone in the raid, increasing damage and healing by 25% for 15 seconds (2 min cooldown).

Bosses in Hellfire Citadel drop higher and higher iLevel gear.

I’ve listed the iLevel each boss drops (and set items are in parenthesis).

For comparison, BRF iLevels are 670N / 685H / 700M. Remember, you likely have a lot of high level items from your garrison raiding missions. So if you are a Heroic BRF raider, you likely have a lot of level 700 BRF mythic items. That means early heroic bosses in HFC give you a 5 iLevel boost over mythic garrison gear, and 20 iLevels over Heroic BRF boss drops.

Class-specific trinkets

Each classes gets a specific trinket that has a chance to drop off Archimond. Below are the 705 Normal mode versions (use the drop down right under the item to switch between N/H/M on wowdb). The Heroic and Mythic versions increase proc chance % as well as other percentages listed.

These drop as a token off Archimond, grouped by the same classes as tier tokens. Once you win it, you can turn it into your class-specific trinket.

Crafting upgrades to iLevel 700 & 715

Rank 5 “Mighty” crafted items increase to iLevel 700 and rank 6 “Savage” increases to 715. Weapon upgrades are 10 iLevels lower. Upgrades require Felblight, which can be obtained in Tanaan Jungle from gathering professions (fishing, herbalism, mining, or skinning).

Also, all previous rank upgrade reagents (2-4) have been consolidated into 1 reagent, making early upgrades easier and cheaper.

Mythic 5-man dungeons: up to iLevel 685 & 705

A mythic difficulty will be added to Draenor dungeons, rewarding iLevel 685 items, with end bosses having a chance to drop iLevel 705 warforged items.

There is also a Timewalking “Bonus Event” that rewards a cache containing a “Heroic Hellfire Citadel quality item.” My best guess is that means you can get any item from HFC, ranging from 705-720 iLevel.

Apexis gear: iLevel 695

New apexis gear will have a base iLevel of 650 that can be upgraded to 695 with an Emowered Apexis Fragment. You get a free 650 item and a free fragment after completing the quest, The Cipher of Damnation, part of your garrison campaign.

More 650 items can be obtained from garrison missions, Tanaan mob drops, and Tanaan quests. More upgrade fragments can be purchased for 20,000 Apexis Crystals (it’s BoP so you won’t find it on the AH).

Challenge mode: iLevel 680

Challenge mode strong boxes will now reward iLevel 680 (up from 650).

Timewalking: iLevel 660 & 675

You can go back and fight through selected old content, with a catch. Your gear is scaled DOWN to an appropriate level. The bosses drop gear that scales back UP to an appropriate iLevel for a level 100 player: iLevel 640 (660 Warforged). With patch 6.2.2 (Sept 1), new gear was introduced at iLevel 675.

There is a Timewalking “Bonus Event.” If you complete 5 timewalking dungeons, you get an extra bonus roll that does NOT count toward your weekly cap.

Epic gems: +75 to a stat

That’s up from +50 for the blue (rare) gems. Each epic gem will require 15 Felblight (which can be obtained through gathering professions in Tanaan Jungle). Here’s a guide on Icy-Veins.

 Best in Bags & Live Loot Ranking

As you win gear, give “Best in Bags” a shot. Mr. Robot will dig through all of the gear you own and tell you what the best items are to equip. No more wondering if that lower iLevel item with a socket is better than the higher iLevel. Mr. Robot KNOWS!

As you kill bosses in Hellfire Citadel, try out our new Live Loot Ranking tool. It ranks gear that drops for every player in the raid. Get the addon here.

Mr. Robot generously passes the money along to his 3 human helpers, who spend it mostly on video games and food.

One price, $1 a month, or ALL of the premium features!

  • Best in Bags (#1 most loved premium feature)
  • Bonus Roll helper
  • Team Optimizer (better loot decision = better team progression)
  • Upgrade finder
  • No ads

Can’t wait? Upgrade now!

(FYI: Optimizing and all Combat Log features are free)

How to get started:

1. Open the Ask Mr. Robot addon in game. (Don’t have it? Get it from Curse). To do that click on the Ask Mr. Robot minimap icon, or type /amr show in the chat window.
2. Open your bank and bags so the addon can scan the inventory.
