LFM Sniffer

Version: 0.2
by: Cladhaire [More]

This is a simple addon that exposes some information provided by the World of Warcraft "Looking for More" API. Now you can get information about the players in the LFM queue without needing to be near them in order to inspect. There is even an "average gear rating" for each person.

There is a single slash command for LFM_Sniffer that will enable/disable the addon:

In addition to the normal mouseover tooltip, you can shift-click an entry in the LFM listing in order to spawn a semi-permanent tooltip that allows you to compare different players.

Please let me know if you have any issues! Thanks to Mikma for sorting out which stats are "useful" for a given class and for some great ideas!

- Added a base localization file, so users can contribute translations
- Removed +damage and expertise from Hunters

Its definitely not average item level and it's unclear how it's actually calculated. Luckily you can judge yourself and play around to see how the number is calculated and what effects it. The number is just provided by the API and definitely appears to be accurate for "overall gear" for a player.

Hope that helps!

Awesome. This will be great for checking out who is inviting me and when I invite people.

It'd be nice if the Average Gear Rating corresponded to something like the Average Item Level of the person's gear, atm its rather meaningless until I get used to the ratings.

How exactly is the average gear rating calculated?
