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.

      Hello again,
      So today I looted a ring in the Mythic+ weekly chest, awful stats but great iLvl improvement (885->920). So the question is: at what point is it sane to sacrifice +4% in Haste to get ~100k more HP?

      Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

      I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

      924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

      67% Mastery (issue?) 
      24% Critical Strike
      29% Haste

      Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

      Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

      Talent Build is:
      Killer Cobra

      Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

      Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

      Hello there guys.

      So I was wondering if there's something like a top 10 list for SP trinkets because I'm switching trinkets like crazy and I don't recognize any difference at all. Switching between WitD/Haste-Stat and Haste-stat/Mastery-stat at the moment.
      Now the next question is if we're using AS or SL and what stats to prioritize with them? Some of the top dps SP are using weird setups and confuse me. They all favor haste of course but some play with a crit heavy build and SL and some are playing with a mastery heavy build and AS. I don't get that tbh.
      At least that's what their logs and their armory are saying.
