About AskMrRobot

Mod Updated (July 10, 1:26 PM PST)

Added the following:

  • Localization support
  • Wipe command for raids: if you call a wipe, click the wipe button right away. That removes purposeful deaths and damage from the log reports
  • Aura and pet data gathering: it can be hard to grab pets and auras because of how the combat logs work. We now use the mod to try to more accurately get this data.
  • Improved realm detection

Mod Updated (May 21, 9:45 PM PST)

Minimap button missing or error? The new version fixes that. Sorry! We moved to the curse code repository for faster addon updates. When we name the repository, we named it "askmrrobot" instead of "AskMrRobot" (with capitals). That caused lua errors, sorry about that. The latest version fixes that.

Mod Updated (May 20, 1 AM PST)

We added support for the new item upgrade levels. Also note that the armory isn't updating item levels in your gear right now. But we have a workaroundthat uses the addon.

What does this mod do?

  • Brings optimizations in-game, including a shopping list, auto-gemming and auto-reforging
  • Scans your bags and powers the "Best in Bags" feature (works for both main and off specs)
  • NEW! Collects gear, talent and glyph data for each boss fight to use with our (alpha) combat log feature

Gem, Enchant & Reforge Optimizations

You can import your optmizations from Mr. Robot right into our mod. It gives you a list of the gems, enchants and reforges you need to make, as well as consolidating anything you need to buy into the shopping list. Watch a demo video. This also grabs you bag and bank data to power Mr. Robot's "Best in Bag" feature.

To use the mod: 1. Load your character into Click optimize. 2. Click the 'export to addon' button found just above your stats window (it's gray). Copy the code snippet that pops up 3. Paste the code snippet into the "Import" tab in the in-game mod. Viola!

Watch the video.

Import Code Snippet Gems Tab Shopping List Tab Gems Tab Enchants Tab Reforge Tab Send material request to a friend


Note: You need to upload the mod's AskMrRobot.lua data export file to to use Best-in-Bags. To do this, click the green "upload" icon on

Watch the video for Best in Bags.

Mr. Robot will take a look at all of the gear in your bags and bank, and find the best items to equip. You can also have Mr. Robot help you find your best set of gear for your offspec. You can even lock your main spec items so that Mr. Robot won't re-gem or re-reforge them for your offspec set. Get more info on setting up your offspec here.

Combat Logs (alpha)

We are alpha testing the combat log features on our site (as of April 30, 2014). Here are a few things to note:

  • We have some auto-start and stop features built in. Go to the combat log tab of the addon to check out the new settings.
  • Everyone who has this version of the addon installed will send gear data to the person logging (who also has the addon installed).
  • When you upload your combat log, the client program will automatically grab the gear data from the addon file.

Change log

  • May 20, 2014: added support for the new item upgrades
  • April 30, 2014: updated the combat log tab to collect gear data for our alpha combat log testing.

    As far as I can tell, I'm not getting any errors... however whenever I attempt to use the addon on ONE of my six characters it simply will not function. I can click forever and use typed controls but get nothing. No menu, though I get the options when I /amr (they just do nothing.)

    This sucks. Armory, cannot use import function...

    Any ideas? It functions on all my other characters (I've deleted all files, redownloaded, just used AMR and disabled all others) so I'm stumped.

  • #163

    I have been tring for the past several days using all examples of how to get Ask Mr. Robot to Optimize and nothing is working or maybe I am still doing it worng. My character BigFist, laughing Skull has had thee better pieces of armour added over the past 3-4 days and (in the past all went well and showed me what to add and where) but nothing is working and i am tired so hoping this will help.

    Tried regular optimize, best in bag, chaning chache name, nothing.

    Started with first (1) new piece about 3-4 days ago.

    And I am a paid member. thanks

    sO WITH A RED FACE, i SAY THAT THE PROGRAM FIX WORKS, AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CORRECTLY. My Armour upgrades were made to both characters and all is well now.


  • #162

    Since the WOW Armory doesnt seem to be updating is there a way to manually use this addon or the site?

    I need to start and get ready for some last minute SoO stuff on an alt and dread doing all of the clacs by nand.

    Could not load my hunter up to even get the information on her even though her name shows up on the list. Tried to copy and paste and load but still not working. I am at a loss. I am guessing I need to find another way to get the info.

  • #160

    i used the auto gem, and the gems in my gear and bags are gone and NOT in any of my gear. 

  • #159

    There's a problem with turning off the minimap icon. Even though I'm turning it off, it comes back again every time I log back in.

  • #154

    Looks like I am not the only one getting the error when I log in after updating to latest version :-(

    same here

  • #155

    I was seeing the same errors, but completely uninstalling the addon and its variables, then reinstalling fixed the issue.

    edit:  remember to completely exit WoW first.

    Thanks for posting this fix, btw. I don't get emailed when there are comments, so sometimes I forget to check here on curse :(

    Confirmed, this solves the 32 LUA errors.
