Cataclysm Pre-Raid Gear Questions? Ask Mr. Robot
This week I was informed about a website that helps players find the best Cataclysm pre-raid gear for their class and spec. The website is Ask Mr. Robot.
Ask Mr. Robot is a simple and easy to use tool for finding gear. You select the icon for your class, followed by the icon for your spec. Then Mr. Robot does some calculations and brings up a list of gear that it considers to be the best options.
There are a few parameters that you can use to filter your options and force Mr. Robot to pick different pieces of gear. The limited number of options makes the process simple and not too overwhelming. Some other gear calculators have so many options to choose from that it can feel like the tool itself has its own learning curve involved.
Ask Mr. Robot does its calculations and pulls up the gear lists fast. There is no waiting for items to load from a database or pages to refresh. The downside is that it only gives you one set of gear. You can get it to swap out some items based on your option selections, but you aren’t able to see what your second, third, or even fourth best options might be for each slot. Having only one option at a time requires us to trust that Mr. Robot’s calculations are correct and that this is in fact the piece of gear that we should have in each slot.
In its current state, Ask Mr. Robot is a fast and easy way to get a list of gear available that will get you ready to raid.
There are a number of resources available for gear, including our own Cataclysm Gear Guide Lists, but I recommend that you add Ask Mr. Robot to list of resources and give this tool a try for yourself.
