BetterTooltips is a lightweight attempt to add some really useful information to the standard Blizzard in-game tooltips, and was inspired by Blizzard's own in-game Game Menu Microbutton tooltip (the one with your latency, framerate, etc).
Version 2.3.1 is here (02/01/2016)!
New features and updates include:
Updated the Character Tooltip with a WoD-specific currency section that automatically populates with your Warlords of Draenor currency (Apexis Crystals, Oil, Garrison Resources, Valor, etc.)
Moved the three "tracked" currencies in their own section in the Character Tooltip
Updated the Social Tooltip to better reflect the state of Battle.net and WoW friends
Updated Spellbook & Abilities tooltip to include a breakout of native profession skill + bonuses
Added a "Remote Guildies" section to the Guild Tooltip to track Mobile Armory and Battle.net App users
Added a slash command framework - use /btt
Added a slash command to hide the tooltip info during combat, if desired. Use /btt combat to toggle the feature
Updated the included Ace library packages
Updated function hooks to reflect any changes since 5.4 that may affect tooltip rendering and information
Added conditional formatting and spacing to tooltips
Changed a lot of backend stuff for eddeciency and bug fixes - see the Change Log in the main BetterTooltips.lua file or the Change Log (file page) on CurseForge for details.
BetterTooltips adds the following tooltip info:
Social (O) Tooltip - The Social tooltip will now display the number of friends you have online, as well as the level (difficulty color coded), name (class color coded), and location (zone) of each of your friends. This list is split into Battle.net friends and local server friends (Note that Battle.net friends will show up in both lists, but will only be counted in the total number of friends online once).
Character Info (C) Tooltip - The Character tooltip will have three new sections added to it, including a color-coded/aggerate-averaged durability percentage, your current money in gold/silver/copper, and your current tracked currencies with icon, name, and amount.
Spellbook & Abilities (P) Tooltip - The Spellbook & Abilities tooltip now gives a summary of your professions, including both primary and all secondary professions, as well as your progress (skill points/maximum) in each. Profession and skill bonuses are shown as a suffix (+addition) to your native skill so you always know exactly where you stand.
Guild (J) Tooltip - The Guild tooltip will now display the name of your guild and how many guildies are online, as well as the level (difficulty color-coded), name (class color-coded), and location (zone) of each of your guilds. It even identifies and lists guildies connected to guild chat via the WoW Mobile Armory App!
Commands and Interface
BetterTooltips has no interface options or command line functions (slash commands). It's a simple on or off add-on. Well, for now...
Yes, you have a significant part in all this, too. While I really love the idea of retiring on micropayments and donations from writing addons, what I really want is your feedback. Bugs, comments, critiques, and suggestions. Keep 'em coming - anything I can do to make this addon better, let me know! It'll help me learn LUA programming and the WoW API better, and it'll get you a better addon!
