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
