A plug for Mr Robot

So listening to the Matticast podcast this morning, I heard about an optimizer tool that would help with your reforging and stat selections. While there are tools like Rawr to help figure your best DPS, and Reforger to help you in game, I was looking for something that was a little bit of both, but that was easy to use.

Enter Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot (MR) is a site that will allow you to upload your current character from the armor, make optimization choices based on a couple of preset stat weights (i.e. healer longevity vs. throughput), allow you to edit stat weights, and allow you to find BIS gear for each slot. Pretty handy. You can even change your professions so you can evaluate the difference between being a JC/BS and an ENG/ALCH.

What really sold me though was that the site was extremely easy to use. A few clicks and I could see what items I should be reforging, some enchants I could change, and get a quick comparison of what BiS items I'm missing. I can even look at my final stats after optimizing, though there's no real way to tell what kind of throughput or longevity you'd get.

All in all it's a pretty nice tool, and I give it the old two thumbs up for ease of use and desired information. Check it out at


  1. Nice find, I would have never known about it.

  2. Adgamorix, I came across this post, glad you like the tool. I'm on the team who built this tool, and wanted to stop in and say hello and thanks for the post. We're tightening up the default stat weights even more, so be sure to drop us a line on our forums if you have feedback.

  3. Thanks for the link, looks very useful (:

  4. Yeah - I really like the tool, and the dev team seems to put a lot of time into making sure the stat weights are right.
