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.

     So you have to pay to use this addon? Other than of course the one week free trial correct? I thought the addons on curse could not require you to pay in order to use them.

  • #19

    The addon is free, all it does is inventory all your gear and catalog it in an addon file. You are paying the AskMrRobot website to allow you to upload the resulting file, and process it to create BIS gear lists, optimized sets, so on and so forth. Basic AskMrRobot functions from the site are still free and don't require the addon.

  • #29

    The new version of the mod is super fancy and totally FREEE! Enjoy.

  • #21

    So the addon works 100% without pay. I get that, but the thing is people need to know it is worthless unless they subscribe to MrRobot also!

  • #16

    How about "hide minimap icon" option? I'd rather enter reload ui command by myself... Icon looks pretty weird with my interface.

  • #18

    I am also for  "hide minimap icon".

  • #20

    Me three <hide minimap> please :¬)

  • #15


    Please make this addon a tooltip to have all the values in game.

  • #14

    I have the same problem as cfw34683.  Followed the instructions but it does NOT create a file.  I use Bagnon for my bags/bank.  When clicked the screen/account reloads as stated but there is no file.

    When I click the mini map button, it does the reload but no file is made.

    Hi, Yellowfive! I want to ask, why is it necessary to use RELOAD function for addon working? As I know, a lot of addons can scan some data from bags, banks, e.t.c. or write any data in file WITHOUT reload. Or you are afraid, that after collecting data from bags the result file will not be closed properly and we will get broken file?..

  • #10

    There is no guarantee that an addon's in-memory settings will be written to disk unless you force it by reloading UI, returning to the character screen, or exiting out of the game.

    Seems not working.

    When I upload the lua file on the web site, the page remain empty except for: "You haven't uploaded any gear yet!". But AskMrRobot.lua is not empty.

    I'm on italian server with eng localization

    Can you give me your character name and realm? Does it happen to be well of eternity? If so, I might know the problem. If not, I'll look into this some more.
