YssBossLoot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.10
by: yssaril [More]
YssBossLoot is a fairly simple loot addon. It is fully integrated into your world map and does a couple things.
  • It enables you to browse all instance maps that are in the game (simply select Dungeons/Raids/Battlegrounds) from the Continent dropdown and then select the Instance from the Zone dropdown.
  • It adds click able boss location icons to the instance maps.
  • There are carious skull textures to chose from in the options
  • If you have the [Ghostly Skull] pet you can also use it as a skull (fully animated)
  • The name of the Boss floats above the skull
  • You can hide all Boss Icons via the little checkbox at the bottom left of your instance map
  • When you click on a boss location its loot will popup out of the skull.
  • You can filter the loot by type/subtype, itemstats, and equip locations.
  • You can define how you want your loot filtered in the options then it will default to those filters ever time the boss loot window is shown
  • It creates a LibDataBroker plugin from which you can select an instance map without first having to open the world map
  • Adds drop location, difficulty, boss, and rate to item tooltips (can be turned off in the options off course)
  • Loot data and drop rates are mined from wowhead.com (i will update the loot database about once a week. If something is way off please create a ticket and i will fix it asap)

if you find anything broken/confusing/illogical/missing create a ticket here please

====== Why did i create this addon? ======
I wanted to have a simple loot addon where i could get at the loot of the dungeon I was currently in fast and easy. Also i did not design it to replace Atlas and AtlasLoot, since YBL only works with dungeons blizzard has created maps for and YBL does not have individual lookup tables for Tier loot, PVP Loot, Faction Items, Mounts, Pets, etc. all of these are way outside of the scope from YBL.

if you want to leave a comment post it at http://www.wowace.com/addons/yssbossloot/ (i check the wowace site a lot more than here)

Upon clicking the boss icons to view item drop rates and information, the items appear to have the RGB coding colors within the item text.

I will try to post a picture later.

its a blizzard bug (nothing i can fix)

reload your UI then use the world markers right away (they should then be usable for the rest of the session)

Hey there Yssaril!

I've been using YssBossLoot since you released it here on WoWInterface. I've had no problems using it aside from one minor issue. I do use YssBossLoot's LDB plugin and I notice that the selection list ends up being extremely long; it actually goes off of my screen. I hope that you may consider shortening the length of the list while adding in a scroll bar so that no instances are hidden.

Thanks for reading, and thank you for the addon. It's great!

Not a deal breaker, just wanted to clear up what I used it for.

On average, how much memory doe your addon use?

Servers are back online, so I guess there is no harm in trķing it out now.

EDIT: You can scrap the last question. Atlas loot is ~3 megs (not including the quest and loot part which are another 8Mb.). Looking at the download size of yours, it cant even come close. (yes, I know that atlas loot is load on demand, but I am still more comfortable with your 300Kb in the addon folder)

Good job.
i personally run atlasloot as well for the fine faction database remember memory means nothing in wow performance wise unless you do not have enough ram (then you have other problems) or the memory is constantly rising and creating garbage.

as far as quests at least for the new dungeons blizzard put all the quest givers inside of the dungeon themselves

there shouldn't be a need for you to use it anyways since i keep the loot data update that comes with the addon (usually reparse every couple days after a big patch and then slowly slow down the parsing since after a wile the numbers are pretty stable)

as far as dungeon quests go the blizzard quest helper is pretty good at telling you where to go i personnaly have never needed anything else

That is fair. I'd love to replace Atlas with this considering the above. Especially the auto map select part. Which indeed is missing from atlas. Also Altas takes up a hell f a lot of memory.

The only thing holding me back is the atlas quest modules. That it can not only show the loots on bosses, but also all the quest in any said instance with the position of the objective as-well (within).

Any way I will probably give it a try. About the miner.lua. Is it run automatically or needs a manual run?

The approach is different.
Sometime ago, we had the same funcionality of YBL inside Cartographer and I must say I missed it until YBL came around.
