How to use Ask Mr Robot the Correct Way

6 posts in this topic

i saw this mentioned in another post but it didn't go over much detail in the steps on how to do this. how do i adjust the stat weights in ask mr robot using the stat weights from simcraft when i simulate my character?

In Ask Mr. Robot's gear optimizer, select "Edit Weights" on the right hand side, near the top. And input your stat weights from simulationcraft.

so on simcraft these were the results

initially amr looked like this

and i plugged the simcaft stat weights into amr so now it looks like this

when i was plugging in the numbers, everything looked ok and all were close to the preset amr stat weights except MH speed. initially in amr it had 0 for MH speed, but as u can see simcraft simmed my MH speed at 279.45. is that right? or should i set amr back to 0? it just threw me off when i saw that 0 to 279 difference when all of the other stat weights were only a few digits off.

the weapon i have is Gravetouch Greatsword

I'm assuming the Weapon categories are just for suggesting upgrades, etc. I wouldn't think they'd have much, if any, effect on your stat weighting. Obviously crucial to your DPS, but not important for optimal reforging.

Your simulationcraft results look pretty unreliable. How many iterations are you running? I wouldn't trust anything under 10k.

Get more accurate results and just ignore the wpn dps/speed imo. You only care about hit/exp cap and your haste/crit/mastery for reforging.

I should add a disclaimer that I don't play a DK. So I don't know how accurate Simulationcraft is for you guys.

i had left simcraft at default settings so the iterations were at 1k. i changed it to 10k and redid the sim and plugged the new numbers into amr.

i left the weapon stats alone and updated everything else in amr

does this look more reliable?

You are doing it right, yes.

But keep in mind that Mr. Robot already sims your character (in Simulationcraft) before it gives you the stat weights, so they are tailored to your character specifically. If you are seeing different weights between your own simulations and the stuff that Mr Robot gives you, that's probably because you are using different settings for those simulations. Mr. Robot is probably going to give you the most reliable results, in all honesty.

Note that it's not just based on Simulationcraft, it does a lot of its own stuff in addition to that before it gives you what it does.

Of course, you can just use the Simcraft values and import them the way you have, if you prefer.

      Anybody can help with this? I'm using simcraft to get the stat priority for my MM's gear but it is giving me crazy results, not sure why. Agility=83.13, Ap=80.24, CritRating=0.83, HasteRating=46.84, MasteryRating=1.04, Versatility=217.72, Dps=297.72
      According to stat priority lists, such as the icy veins one, mastery should be the predominant stat. Now I understand that it can change depending on gear and other things, but this much???
      I've attached a screenshot wit the settings in simcraft, in case it helps.
      Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? Sorry if it's a noob question.
      Cheers!

      i have a dps monk and i noticed the greyed out stat when i was lvling my monk up and because i am a returning player i have no idea what it is and i noticed it swaps with agility when u change ur spec to mistwalker and my question is, can i use my current gear to heal or not?

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!

      Anybody got any experience/tips or tactics they use as a fire mage ( or other specs that have any knowledge that may be able to apply in generality )

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)

      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit
