Elitist Group  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v1.7.6
by: Shadowed [More]
Elitist Group's goal is to shift focus away from single scores which don't tell you anything about the users choice of gear. Instead of a single score, Elitist Group shows you a variety of data from the players experience per dungeons and raid (can be broken down by boss), to whether their choice of equipment, enchants or gems fit their spec. You can still see the players average item level as well, but it's not the primary focus and only there to give you an idea of a players gear.

All user data will be compressed on logout to keep the database size more manageable. However, a variety of database management options are included to delete data after a certain period of time, or not save data on people from another server.

Interested in people being able to see your mains experience or request your data, but don't want the entire addon? Take a look at Elitist Group Sender, which does nothing more than respond to experience or data requests.

Slash command: /elitistgroup (/eg) use /eg help for a list of slash commands.

Bugs? Suggestions? Items flagged wrong?
Easiest way to report anything is through the ticket tracker. Should you be reporting an item being flagged incorrectly, make sure you include as much details as to why it's wrong.

How are items categorized?
Based on stats. Spell Power is a caster item, Hit is for DPS, Strength is only for melee dps, Defense for tanks and so on. As you can see in the screenshots, you are given what an items type is. Whether an item is allowed or not is based on spec, meaning Holy Paladins will be flagged for wearing Retribution gear, but a Retribution Paladin will not.

If somebody is missing an enchant or gem, Elitist Group will also tell you that.

Summary
To speed up checking out your raid or dungeon group, you can use /eg summary. It will quickly inspect everyone in your group and give you a summarized report on the status of their gear, enchants and gems.

Player notes
Finished a dungeon, was your tank amazing? Notes will allow you to rate him 1 - 5 and leave a comment for future reference, these can even be synced between your friends or guild. You can leave one note per person, with your most recent note being used. Use /eg rate to open this.

Dungeon experience
Quickly see how much experience a player has in a particular dungeon or raid, broken down by hard modes and even by pass. For raids, players are experienced after roughly 3 clears and for 5 mans it's around 6 (combined runs, not 6 of each). The scoring is setup to reward full clears. That way, somebody who can only clear the first 4 bosses of 25-man Trial of the Grand Crusader will have to do a lot more clears to be considered experienced, compared to the person who can full clear it.

To make it easier on players, achievements are factored into the experienced weighting. For example, A Tribute to Insanity and The Immortal will count for a full clear. Even doing 25-man Uldaur hard mods will increase your 25-man Ulduar normal mode experience.

No reason your alt should be left out of the fun because you haven't done a dungeon on the character yet. As of v1.5, you can setup a character as your main and whenever people request your data in Elitist Group they will see your mains experience. No more being left out because of an inexperienced alt!

Item level
To stop 200 item level blues being worth the same as 200 item level epics, simple modifiers are applied to item level based on quality: -0% epic, -5% blue, -10% green, -40% white, -50% grey. Heirlooms are considered 187 item level blues at 80, or 2.22 item level/per player level.

Suggested dungeons are the lowest item dropped -11% for 5-mans, -10% for normal 10 and 25 mans and a -9% modifier for heroic 10 and 25 mans.

Addon communication
Notes and player data can be synced. Players can request your gear or notes at any time; however, you can disable all communications entirely so you will not send or parse to them. Finer control over what channels to monitor is also included in /eg config, you can set it to not listen for gear requests from party or raid, but still in guild.

While in combat, you will not send or parse comm messages.

To prevent people from corrupting your database, Elitist Group will not accept other players gear data unless the player themselves sent it (Johnny can send his gear data, Steve cannot send Johnny's unless Steve is on your trusted list).

As of v1.5, more complicated syncing has been added to allow you to send your entire user or notes database, see here for information.

Using this fan update, and the recently added statistics tab in 4.1, I've attempted to re-update Shadowed's work and add in some new features and updates that came with Cataclysm. However, I am a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE Lua writer, and I have no experience.

Regardless, I did get it to show the new Instances (including the troll ones) and add in some new features regarding gems, item enhancements, and new stats in Cataclysm.

In other areas I've hit some snags, such as fixing relics to be another item as opposed to a spell enhancement as they were in Wrath. If anyone wants to help out in reviving this addon back from the dead, feel free to take a look at what I've done and see if you can add anything to it.

My link's on the WoWace page, but I'll post it here as well. As always, I am a random guy on the internet, hell-bent on trying to destroy everything you own, so be careful and scan what I post with a virus scanner!

Well, there would be, if anyone pick up this addon, like someone picked up QuickAuctions , and Antiarc picked up Shadowed UnitFrames. If anyone pick up this addon (with Shadowed permission i think...not sure how they deal with it), then the addon would continue to live.

If i had more Lua knowledge, i definetly would do it, or at least something similar :<

If anyone know of a good replacement for EG, please speak up.
I loved this addon for its simplicity, not only to check up on randoms invited to raids, but also for (self) audit of gear.

It made very easy to spot if "someone" had forgotten a belt buckle or an enchant in the rush to utilize a new upgrade.

Ah was wondering what was going on with the EA site, didn't know you ran that lol

Sad to see you go, been using your addons forever but gl with your pursuits, wish I knew enough about lua to help continue your work.

I did figure this out tho since EA is down to make the URL function work with wowheroes if anyone else uses it.

Change line 259 to

Code:
    return region and realm and name and string.format("http://www.wow-heroes.com/index.php?zone=%s&server=%s&name=%s", region, realm, name)
to make it use wow-heroes instead

EG won't be updated with Cataclysm since I haven't really been playing for the past year or so. Normally I would keep EA running up until CC came out, but I need the server for other projects and EA uses more resources than it's worth to keep running.

NOTE: Blizzard is going to start throttling inspect requests with the next rolling restarts. I'll be pushing an update to EG with the new throttle once the number is figured out.

The main impact of this is group inspects will be slower. Hopefully the throttle is only 3-5 seconds, but will have to wait and see.

I'll also be pushing out the Ruby Sanctum info with the update for next week when it's opened.

The STA is indeed mostly useless, but your other choices for run speed are less STA, AGI, and only run speed.

Huh! I had ignored Tuskarr's Vitality because stamina's pretty much a non-issue while healing. But you argue persuasively.

Which is to say, I'm not TOTALLY sure this is an "always bad" gem. Is it always bad because I should be using Tuskar's Vitality on boots to get speed, or because speed is only needed if you're going to be running around after people, and that should never happen?
