NowCarrying monitors any stackable items you receive/are carrying.
When you gain/lose one-or-more of these it replaces the message
You receive [ITEM]xN
Now Carrying T [ITEM] (+/-N)
where N is the amount you've gained/lost
and T is the total you are carrying.
So instead of
"You receive [Knothide Leather]x2"
you would get something like
"Now Carrying 22 [Knothide Leather] (+2)"
Why do this?
Unlike the Blizzard message, which only appears on looting corpses or when crafting
NowCarrying gives a message when taking things from Mailboxes, Banks, Trading etc.
In fact ANY time your inventory changes!
So you're farming for a specific number of items and you can see how many you have
EVERY time you loot one - without having to open your bags.
When you use a spell/ability which requires reagents, you see how many reagents you
When you eat/drink/use potions/bandages etc., you see how many of these you have
When you craft an item you see the remaining raw materials
Q - I sometimes get the standard "You receive..." message for items which are stackable
A - Items which are not in your local itemcache are reported 'unstackable' until the server updates
The message may appear the first time you see a particular item - nothing I can do about that...
Updated INTERFACE (no longer need to load out-of-date addons!)
