Goroth simulations match real logs

Hello, human friend!

I’m glad you stopped by. Your gear is very important to Mr. Robot (did you know he polishes it every time you log out? I bet you thought it was always shiny and spotless because of some magic going on in Azeroth, didn’t you?)

Anyway! To give you the best gearing advice, you have to trust the simulation engine behind it.

How do you know Mr. Robot’s simulator is giving you accurate results?

Great question! We can compare simulations directly to logs, since we use real boss fights. Real player + real boss = verifiable results.

When you can simulate a top player and the report matches the log – you know the system is spot on.

I am proud to tell you that simulations match top logs for all DPS specs!

Comparing simulations to logs allows us to confirm (or fix) things like…

  • Spell abilities – is the damage correct and are they affected by the right buffs?
  • Rotations – do our rotations reflect what top players are doing?
  • Special items – is the damage and proc rate matching on special items?
  • Boss strategies – are some people using a different strategy or positioning? If so, we make modified scripts.

Each log is imported into our simulator, exactly matching the fight length, talents, gear, and buffs that the character had on that fight.

If we find something that doesn’t match, we investigate and fix it. We’ve evaluated thousands of logs per spec (and counting), and I wanted to share a sample of the test results with you. Trust, but verify, right?! Continue reading

Simulation guide: Krosus

I showed earlier that our Krosus model matches real-life logs from top Warcraft players. That makes these simulations incredibly useful because the advice you get is based on real situations. Below is a guide to help you simulate different scenarios to see how it impacts your DPS. You can also take the scenario closest to how you play and generate stat weights from that.

Step 1: Load your character into the simulator

Click this link to go to the simulator. Load your character from the armory, or the addon import.

Step 2: Review your character setup

The left side of the simulator page is all about your character. Click the plus signs to expand sections, like talents. Click on gear in the list to select different gear, relics, or enchants.

Krosus script setup in Ask Mr. Robot

Why the Krosus script matters:

The Krosus script models the fight very closely when executing the fight well.  It’s helpful to use because you can see how the mechanics affect your DPS.

For example, during bridge breaks, melee are out of range for 6 seconds, which can lower your DPS by 15-40k over the course of the fight, compared to a target dummy or ‘patchwerk’ style fight where you dps and never have to move.

This type of setup allows you to more closely model the game, which generates better stat weights, gear recommendations, and makes comparing talents (etc) more realistic. Continue reading
