In my experience Mr Robot isn't very accurate, every bleeding edge tank right now is stacking Mastery > Dodge > Parry for avoidance, whilst being hit-capped.Mr Robot, however, advocated for me to take every single stat I had and convert it into Parry rating, even though this would uncap me in both Hit and Expertise...

Mr. Robot seemed pretty good for fury though, let me get rid of ~10 wasted points in exp. Was impressed that it already has the new stat weights from 4.0.6.

Not every bleeding edge tank is maintaining hit/expertise caps. Sorry Bob ...Baba... (lolthreat)

You only need to be have the extra hit/exp if your running heroics. For raids, hit/exp right now for tanks is a lost cause. I don't know very many tanks that are even over 3% hit and above 10exp. For raids there is more adds and running around for the dps/heals so the tank doesn't have to be hit capped.

Dodge and parry are stats you want to have at similar values due to the way diminishing returns work. So if your dodge is much higher than your parry it should be telling you to reforge to parry wherever you can't reforge to mastery. As others have said hit and expertise caps aren't considered to be worth gearing for currently.I don't really like it, missing attacks just feels sloppy, but that's what all the theorycrafters all seem to be saying.

There is not a consensus in the tanking community on exactly which stats to go for. We have an ongoing discussion of tank stat weights on our forums, if you would like to weigh in on it:http://forums.askmrrobot.com/index.php?topic=764.0The stat weights are editable, so you can always customize the optimization to your tanking preference.

How in the heck are you able to get hitcapped? I'm a druid tank in all pre-raid gear all 346 and a handful of epics. I reforged everything to dodge (as every single pre-raid list seems to advise) and I only have 5.96% hit and 1.5% expertise. Even this Mr Robot recommends my gear ideal pre-raid gear has only 2.39% hit and 4.78% expertise. I dunno how you got to both the hit and exp cap without sacrificing like a ton of avoidance.

A lot of problems as a rogue, biggest and most obvious is it doent filter the ranged slot to thrown only for us, since fan of knives requires a thrown. This thing is based purely on stats. And its tables are not caking caps and things into correct account. How can it tell your talents?Recommendation: If a fine program to give you an idea on 90% of your gear, even enchants and gem hints. But as always take it with a grain of salt and look closely. You may actually be hurting yourself if you trust a program to much to think for you!GL gearing everyone!

Outdatedkero, I've been using Mr. Robot for a while. It's definitely taking caps into account and loading your talents. If you look at the stats page and it says, for example, that you have 15% hit, that is including the hit you got from Precision.As for the ranged weapon, you are right, but you can always manually select the one (!) 346 throwing weapon available if you want to stick to thrown. I would imagine most Rogues do, so that would probably be a good option for the tool. "Throwing weapons only."

If rogues always want thrown weapons, that is a very easy change for us to make. I'll look into it and we can either add an option or just always default to thrown.
