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.

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

  • #9

    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.

  • #8

    I edited the server name (just like kimmy7 did) before posting here, but was not working.

    Now it's all okSurprised


  • #7

    Interesting. I edited the servername for someone else's log on that server, and it didn't work. Can you post or email the lua file with your edits? I'd like to compare. Email feedback -at- askmrrobot [dot] com.

    Do you have any solution?

    thanks in advance


    NVm i found the problem i just edited  the file and changed the name of the server from the italian oe "Pozzo dell'eternità" to "Well of Eternity" and now it works :D

    Would be nice in the 'Game Menu->Interface->AddOns' tab to have an AskMrRobot entry that has a checkbox to turn on and off the minimap button.

  • #2

    I agree its a pain to have it on my clean ui...

  • #11

    Any luck on this? Even just a right-click menu for config would be better than none.

    As it stands right now, I keep right clicking on the minimap button expecting a popup menu and it reloads my UI.

    You guys are in luck - we're working on that feature this weekend :) Thanks for taking the time to give feedback, it's always helpful.
