Askmrrobot telling me to reforge crit into mastery as fire

7 posts in this topic


I know that 4P T15N is supposed to be quite good for fire and generally thought I would keep it until I get 4P T16N, but I wanted to see if any of my available offpieces in bags were worth breaking the set and how big a difference it would make.

However, for some reason, when I use the "best in bags" feature of Askmrrobot, it starts telling me to reforge crit into haste/mastery. I can try manually overriding each of the pieces, but no matter what manual stat weigths I use or if I use the built in smart picker, the results are the same.


Current eq goes like this


And AMR is telling me to go this way



Anyone have an idea why? Also, since normal crit levels are so much below heroic, does the rule about not breaking 4P T15 still apply?

Are you sure that the right specialization was set in the options of AMR? You might have been in arcane spec when you used the AMR addon in game.

These reforges look like to be for arcane mages. :)


About breaking or not breaking the tier bonus, the AMR can easily gove specific information just for you if it is set up right.

That´s the thing - I haven´t touched on live since Cata, I´m fire all the way - it seemed to me like a bug, that´s why I was posting ;)

I can try it once again from scratch to see if the problem persists.

Ok, so I tried it from scratch on another computer with the same results - even if my spec is fire both in game and on AMR and using default stat weights, AMR disregards them and reforges me out of crit. If I manually override the suggested reforges, the DPS estimate goes higher. I am quite sure that this is a bug in the "best in bags" optimization script.

Hey, I answered your question over on the AskMrRobot forums but I thought I would add the answer here as well in case anyone else was wondering.


There is a high likelihood that you have Fire set as your offspec on AskMrRobot.


Here's an example of what this looks like with my Monk (Brewmaster main, Windwalker off):
^Main Spec
^Off Spec
The Main/Off toggle to the right of that image is what you need to toggle - I bet for your Fire spec it is set to offspec. Note the Primary/Secondary bit is just the order you chose those specs in-game.
The reason this is causing all of your gear to be reforged to Haste/Mastery is because Best-In-Bags works by reforging/gemming/enchanting all of your gear for your main spec (either Arcane or Frost) and then reusing those gear pieces as they are, as well as anything else available in your bag, to find the best spec for your offspec without modifying anything used for your main spec.

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
