LootWatch is a cousin to the Quest Watch function; it tracks items in your inventory instead of quest objectives. The idea is to show how many items you have - any item - on screen instead of having to count stacks in the inventory.
LootWatch will consider items which are on any alts you have on the same realm, as well as items that are in you and your alts' banks. If you hover your mouse over an item in the LootWatch list, it will show you a break down of which character(s) have how many of each item, and whether it is in their bags or bank. You can enable/disable this behavior via slash commands. It is enabled by default, however.
You may use /lw or /lootwatch when issuing slash commands. You can view the following list in-game by typing /lw or /lootwatch with no additional command.
/lw # [item link] - add item to watch.
/lw [item link] - show total amount of item.
/lw +# [item link] - add amount to watched item.
/lw -# [item link] - subtract amount from watched item.
/lw *# [item link] - multiply amount for watched item.
/lw /# [item link] - divide amount for watched item.
/lw clear [item link] - remove item from watch.
/lw clear all - remove all items from watch.
/lw move on|off|reset - start moving LootWatch frame.
/lw fontsize # - change font size (default 11).
/lw show - toggle LootWatch frame.
/lw hide combat on|off - hide during combat.
/lw hide party on|off - hide while in party.
/lw alts on|off - include items in the bags of alts?
/lw banks on|off - include items in the bank and banks of alts?
If the text is too small, you can change the size by typing /lw fontsize 15 Or any other number you like. The default size is 11.
Let's say you need to gather 100 Runecloth. Just type
/lw 100 [Runecloth]
and LootWatch will show your current amount just like an incomplete quest. When you gathered the amount you picked, the 'quest' will be marked as complete and automatically deleted when the amount reaches 0. You can also type
to just display the total amount gathered. Use
/lw clear [Runecloth]
to stop watching an item. You can watch up to 50 different items at the same time.
Known issues and nice-to-know info:
- You can add items with
/lw amount [item link]. For example
/lw 20 [Runecloth]
/lw 0 [Kingsblood]
Actually, it doesn't even have to be real item links; just type [anything] (with brackets) to track anything.
- You can mathematically change the amount. For example
* This addon was originally LootPlan by Neleane. In an effort to update it for WotLK and improve some of the features, I renamed this addon as I do not want it to be confused with the original addon. Since there are several core changes, I was hesitant to simply consider it a Fan's Update or any such thing.
- Allow user to choose if they want to include items in banks and on alts in their totals with /lw alts on|off and /lw banks on|off.
- Does not break the LDB plugin, but you will have odd data if you do not update it to r206.
- Updated to support inventories per faction, so you won't get counts of items on other faction alts.
- More extensive item collection method. This will allow LootWatch to display counts for items that were not previously watched, simply by having loaded LootWatch on an alt before.
r185: Fix for mysterious item duplication bug.
r183: Added support for adding in counts from items held by alts and in banks. Does NOT include guild banks, and only considers alts and banks on the same realm as the character watching an item. TODO: Split faction counts. >.>;
r146: /lw [item] now does the same thing as /lw 0 [item] did previously.
r145: Changing the fontsize should now properly change the title font as well.
r144: Add: /lw hide combat on|off, /lw hide party on|off to auto-hide the list frame during combat/groups.
----: Updated description.
r140: Uses per-character settings. Now scans keyring for watched items.
r138: Add: /lw show to toggle list frame. Moved to Lua-based frames rather than XML.
r134: Bug fix: 'clear all' should now properly persist through UI reload.
