BrackenSpore_IconWhen you look through combat logs, does it feel like a time-sinking, soul-draining scavenger hunt for a magical piece of data? Or maybe you fell asleep looking at the data and relied on your raid team’s ‘combat log guy‘ to sift through the data and fill you in.

And in the next raid, when your team wipes, what happens? Are people getting yelled at, blamed for messing up mechanics or not doing enough DPS/Healing?

Mr. Robot is here to give you a big hug and send rainbows shooting out of your computer screen. He wants to make post-combat information fun. He wants to give you the context you haven’t had before. He wants to help you kill more bosses.

Even several Blizzard people are excited for the tool 🙂

Check it out on one of my own logs! Click on any boss for the infographics. It will work on any logs uploaded Thursday night (Jan 29) or later 🙂

Is that mechanic really the cause of your raid wipes?

You know that mechanic you THINK you’re wiping on? Like that fire on Twin Ogron… and then people are called out, everyone feels bad, the mood deteriorates, and then the loot gods punish you with gold on your bonus rolls (they are all-knowing!). Do you REALLY know if that’s the cause of the wipes?

You will now! Mr. Robot’s infographics tell you how well other teams, who have killed the boss, did on each mechanic. (In our raids, it actually was a problem, and we scored bad on it)

Are you really taking too much avoidable damage?

Every team struggles with avoidable damage, and your healers would love you more if you took LESS damage (and less of their precious, precious mana). Their love has conditions, you know! But how do you know what’s an acceptable level of avoidable damage? Surely they don’t expect you to get to ZERO!

Mr. Robot’s infographics show you how much avoidable damage each raider took, and how that compares to teams who’ve killed the boss. This finds a nice baseline, and average, of acceptable avoidable damage for each encounter.

Are you killing adds fast enough?

You want to kill the Brackenspore adds fast, but what is… “fast” ?! It isn’t really defined, is it.
Until NOW!
Mr. Robot collects data from all successful kills and tells you what fast really is 🙂

Want even more data?

Each section has links to bring you to more data. And for those of you who LIKE digging through it (and don’t fall asleep like I do), we have all of the data you could ever want. Here’s a quick video tutorial on that data.

Upload your logs!

New to logging? We have a little guide on uploading logs to get you started.

  1. Get the desktop application here.
  2. Optional: If you want gear data tied to the logs (you should, silly), get the addon here.
    You can check a box to auto-log raids if you want. No need to do ANYTHING else with the addon, other than have it installed.
  3. Upload your logs with the desktop application.
    (Start an upload / Fight selection & gear data step)
  4. When you’re done, click the big button to view your logs, or just load your character on our site and the logs will show on the right side.
