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.

simcraft results

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.

      Hi Guys, I need little help with stats priority and rotation. I think, Im doing something wrong with my dps. Cant break 500k-550k DPS on single target and need advice to someone AoE target bosses in Nighthold.
      I send my armory:

      And the logs:

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!

      Hey there!
      I'm 907 ilvl frost breath DK with the minimal 25% crit and 19-20% haste. I have 885 memento and convergence and I just got a 885 trinket with str and 1k crit.
      So excluding cases where ppl keep dying and with the new stat weights - is a pure stat trinket like that better than memento?

      Salutations! I have a problem regarding stats and ilvl, i've uploaded 2 pictures of my stats and ilvl with 2 different setups.
      In one picture, my stats are (what i consider to be) pretty high except haste, but in order to have these stats i must sacrifice 6 ilvls.
      In the other my stats have decreased drastically (except haste, which has increase drastically, as well as my ilvl)
      So i wonder what i should set my focus on, my ilvl, or my stats?
      Sidenote: with high stats and ilvl 868, In most aoe cases i outdps my hunter friend who is 887 by several miles, his skills are questionable though...
      Thank you so much in advance :)
