Mr. Robot tracks activity on his site to help him improve the tools. He knows if a particular function is super-popular, or if something is being overlooked, or even just not very useful afterall. The other day he realized that only 3 out of every 1,000 visitors clicked the ‘export’ button. It actually used to be named ‘permalink’ but he wanted to try renaming it to see if that made a difference… it didn’t. So he decided to explain it in his blog a bit and wants feedback… do you have a use for these features? Take the poll at the bottom of the post and let him know!
SimC Export: For those of you that love using SimC, we provide code to input right into SimC. Hey, we use it all the time too! It’s a great tool for us to check the accuracy of our default stat weights.
Reforgerade Export: This was just added last week, and it’s a pretty handy in-game mod. You open a window with the reforge vendor, open reforgerade, then paste Mr. Robot’s export code right into the window. The mod will make all of the suggested reforges for you.
Permalinks: Mr. Robot will generate a link to any set of options you choose.
- Share your gear with a friend for feedback. Mr. Robot will automatically pick a few options based on your current state in the optimizer. For example, if you haven’t clicked the optimize button, Mr. Robot will generate a link to your pre-optimized gear. But if you have clicked optimize, the link will point to the optimized gear set. Either way, the link generation window will let you switch around the default options to create the link you’re looking for. Give it a shot!
- Share a BiS list on your blog: Choose the “best in slot” option for “which gear set?” Click update link and it’s ready to share. You can even choose to use a locked set of gear, which might be useful if you favor one trinket over another, for example.
- Share your custom stat weights: Many people have custom stat weights, or have a friend that asks for stat weight help. Just edit the stats in the regular UI, open the export window, and Mr. Robot will have already selected the “use my current stat weights” option for you. Grab the link and share it.
