So my 10 man raid team got to a bit of a slow start. We’re currently working on Garalon in Heart of Fear. We want to get into Throne of Thunder as soon as we can, because who doesn’t like new content?! There are no restrictions to get into normal mode Throne of Thunder, but the suggested gear level is 490. Also, for what it’s worth you need to have iLevel 480+ to get into ToT LFR.
My raid team wants to gear up as fast as possible so we are tough enough to run Throne of Thunder. We’re using RoboCouncil to help us fast track our gear upgrades – we want to assign each drop as efficiently as possible. Mr. Robot looks at everyone in your raid group and ranks boss drops for each person. He even tells you if an item makes or breaks set bonuses – he’s very helpful! And of course, he can help you assign Throne of Thunder drops too 🙂
He then tells you how big of an upgrade it is for each player. Then YOU can decide – if it’s twice as big of an upgrade for player A than player B, do you want Player A to have it? For our group, we’re giving the biggest upgrades to people, since it helps our the raid team as a whole.
You’ll notice that it’s often the case that a lot of items are upgrades for each player. But there are usually trade offs. For example, if a tanking ring drops, it’s an upgrade for both of our tanks, but almost twice as big for Tank A. There’s a helm that’s also an upgrade for both tanks, but it’s twice as big for Tank B. Great – we’ll make sure to properly assign loot based on what drops.
But what if you have someone on your team who is really undergeared and doesn’t farm for upgrades like everyone else? Giving them all of the upgrades can cause Drraaaaaamma. Well, Mr. Robot can help you figure out if that is what’s going on. You may have noticed the “Armory Score” column – that shows how close each person is to the BiS set. This is determined by the filters at the top of RoboCouncil, so be sure to select the appropriate raid levels for your group.
