About AskMrRobot

Mod Updated Oct 14, 12:01 AM PST)

Made the following changes:

  • Updated to work with new file structure
  • Removed reforging
  • Auto-gemming is NOT available. It will be back with Warlords (we haven't had time to extensively test it, and don't want to accidentally delete gems)
  • The export used for Best in Bags is now in the 'export' tab
  • Use the "Load a Gear Set" tab to import optimizations or Best in Bags. This is where Best in Bags is now viewed!
  • Updated the importing & exporting in case there are armory problems. You can now load a new character into our site, in addition to just updating an existing character.

Please report any bugs on - we will see it much faster than the comments here.

What does this mod do?

  • Brings optimizations in-game, including a shopping list, gems and enchants
  • 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 Optimizations

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

To use the mod:

  1. Load your character into Optimize.
  2. Click the 'export to addon' button found to the right of your gear, in the "Now What?" section. Copy the code snippet that pops up.
  3. Paste the code snippet into the "Load a Gear Set" tab in the in-game mod.

Summary tab after importing data


Use our WEBSITE to ask Mr. Robot to find the best gear set out of items in your bags and bank. He'll do this for your main and offspecs. There's a tutorial on our blog.

Combat Logs (alpha)

The alpha test is now closed and this will officially launch with the release of Warlords of Draenor. Thanks to everyone who helped us test this.

    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 :¬)

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

    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.

  • #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.

    I have his same problem and yes i am on well of eternity

    Do you have any solution?

    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
