We just launched a lot of cool updates – see for yourself!
New Optimization Algorithm
The new optimization algorithm finds the absolute best solution 100% of the time, AND it runs faster. Some optimizations are down to 5 or 10 milliseconds! (see more stats). Note: there are some cases we don’t guarantee – if they run too slow it falls back to an approximation or if you have inappropriate gear for your spec (like Int gear on a feral druid). So look for the ‘guaranteed optimal’ notice so you can have confidence in your optimization!!
We’ve run tests on 200,000 randomly sampled characters from our site, and run the beta algorithm on it, and run tests to make sure the result given on the website was indeed the absolute best scenario. Anything that doesn’t pass the test got logged and we looked into the problem. We are currently bug-free, but we don’t put it past humans to trick Mr. Robot. For example one of the bugs we found during testing turned out to be people who were no longer Jewelcrafters but locked in JC gems. Mr. Robot got confused… you silly, tricky humans!
If anything looks odd – let us know and we’ll fix it asap!
This has been a big request and it’s coming in the very near future! While Mr. Robot still very, very strongly recommends letting him optimize everything, he understands that there are a few use-cases for only optimizing reforges. For example, if you just got a new item in the raid and you want to do a super-fast reforge so you can use it right away… now he can help you do that.
Dual Spec Mode
Dual spec mode will allow you to save stat weights and preferences for each spec. So now when you load a character, Mr. Robot will read your primary and secondary offspecs from the Armory API. When you switch between specs, he’ll remember any custom weights you had for each of them, along with all of your other options (like exclude expensive enchants for an offspec).
Stat Weight Editor: Advanced mode
You can now add any cap you want, even if Mr. Robot thinks it’s silly. He knows how us humans like the play with stuff, so he likes to enable our creative thinking 🙂
This premium feature is got a lot of work done to it. Dual spec BiB optimizations will let Mr. Robot choose the best items and optimizations for your main spec, then pick offspec gear with the leftovers. If Mr. Robot decides to use your main spec items in your offspec, he locks the gems, enchants and reforges in from the main spec, so you aren’t paying to swap them over and over and over. We’re pretty excited for this update – it will make the feature much more user friendly. (Read more about the BiB updates).
COMING SOON: In-Game Mod that lets You Import Your Optimizations
No more alt-tabbing! Mr. Robot is expanding his in-game mod to let you import your optimizations into the game. He’ll let you see a shopping list and all of the gem, enchant and reforge changes you need to make.
ETA: Launch with 5.4 or a few weeks after
COMING SOON! 5.4 General Changes
- Of course with the new flex raid gear, we’ll be adding that into the upgrade finder. ETA: a few days before 5.4 launches
- New items will be added. ETA: a few days before 5.4 launches.
- And we’ll update the stat weights for the patch, like always. We’ll have a rough set to go live the day 5.4 launches and we’ll fine tune them over the 2 weeks following 5.4.
- Haste breakpoints, set bonuses, trinkets, etc will all be added in around 5.4.
