You are referring to Korner's reforging script I assume. You are correct that Mr. Robot uses an approximate algorithm to find "near-optimal" gear setups. It takes a long time to check every single combination - "long" being a relative term. We wanted it to run in less than a second - you can already see the stress on our servers with just that much processing time.That being said, I posted up an example of Korner's reforging script failing to find the optimal solution. I ran the same character through Mr. Robot and found a comparable result - both tools were about 10 EP off of THE optimal solution. In his optimizations of the script, it appears that Korner is now also inadvertently doing an approximate solution, although it is still very near-optimal. Mr. Robot is going to be so close to the optimal solution that the random number generator in the game will make sure that you never notice the difference - I know that will not appease hardcore min-maxers, but it works for most of us!Keep in mind that Mr. Robot also optimizes gems and enchants for you too, which will often result in an overall better setup.
