Loving Some Mr Robot Beta Love

I've been taking a peek at some of the exciting Ask Mr Robot beta features and find them VERY exciting. The latest round of changes to the site include finding and acquiring gear upgrades and using upgrades that already sit in your bags.

First off, I haven't spent all my justice points. Maxed out at 4000 points and didn't want to just throw them at something. This meant (with the old interface), going through each upgrade listed (on the AMR site) and trying to find which gave the greatest + score value. Now (in the beta) they have a separate interface that will break down each upgrade. Of course #1 and #2 upgrades are replacing my crafted pvp chest piece.



After replacing my few remaining quest greens, I finally reached 450 and can now queue for the LFR. Similar to the justice point upgrade sheet, now I can see which raids would provide me the best # of upgrade options.

Where should I queue? This is a two part. 1) View which raid has the most upgrades for me, then click 'view all' to see a list of all of them. Now, when an upgrade pops up, I will know to click that "NEED!!" button immediately.
Sure, AMR still has all the awesome reforge and enchant optimizations. The site has now expanded on the shopping list options thought. Now instead of just buy this, you can get a checklist of buy this or these mats. In addition, it breaks down the gemming and reforge options that you still need to be perfect.

Really excited about these upcoming changes. These are some of the original "i want!, i want!" from the original version that other DPS optimization sites offered. I love how they've integrated the new features with their old.

Landfall Dailies

Last night I started the Dominance Offense reputation quests.  There was a few things that I am really excited about this new faction.

  1. Already can buy upgrades from DO Quartermaster. I am seriously considering replacing my alchemist stone with the trinket
  2. Mounted battle. Last night I ran the quest where you mount up (no kite) on my Charger and flew around blowing gyrocopters out of the air. As with questing being practice for dungeons, and dungeons being practice for raiding, I can see a new raid boss where you bring your own mount to the fight. 
  3. BOA rep. Yeah, unlike the daunting task of trying to get my disc priest rep for shoulder enchants in Cata (Hated to Exalted), now I can simply buy it. She'll gain rep at 2x the speed he does simply because of a BOA purchase.

    Grand Commendations becomes available for purchase at Revered reputation with a faction. The gain will affect that character's grind from Revered to Exalted as well as all future toons on that account (both factions, all realms, all battle.net accounts) for all rep levels, forever. The bonus stacks with both guild and human rep bonuses, doubling the amount of rep received after they are applied.

I just started the quests, so I haven't yet seen all the Queen references..
