ArmorCraft (Fan Update)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: Beta v30300-1-r250
by: LaoTseu [More]

[Latest news: I will start posting the beta version here since they are mostly working now :-)]

ArmorCraft is a WoW add-on for scanning an armor crafting window and displaying the best armor or weapon that can be crafted for a given level. This makes it much easier to see if you can craft a better piece of armor for yourself or another player. You can also compare a specific armor or weapon with the one in use by a target player and your alternates. Blacksmiths and Engineers will also show the best melee weapon or gun that can be crafted.

This is an update of Vincent of Blackhand's ArmorCraft. Vincent has stopped playing WoW so I decided to try to do something about making ArmorCraft usable with WoW 2.0.1 and up.

ArmorCraft checks the class and level of the targeted player (defaults to the current player) and then finds the highest usable armor that can be crafted from the currently open trade skill window (Blacksmithing, Leatherworking, Tailoring, Engineering or Jewelcrafing). The armor class and level can be changed to select for players that aren't present.

There are formulas assigned to each class based on the values extracted buy the ItemBonus-2.0 library. There formulas are used to evaluate each item that you pickup or that you can make and compere them with what what you, a party member or an alt is wearing. I tried to come up with good default formulas for leveling but your contribution is welcome.

Shift-LeftClick an armor or weapon in your inventory, bank, loot window or chat window link to open a window to check its usefulness compared to the corresponding equipped item for yourself and a player target. This makes evaluating loot quick and easy. You can also check a selected item in your craft window.

If ArmorCraftCache (included in the distribution) or CharacterProfiler is installed, you can select a alt target and all alts characters will be displayed in the item comparison window. When you are in a party, the party members will be listed in the item comparison window.

See the README file for complete details.



To Do

  • Configuration Dialog (first version included in Beta r64, it needs improvement)
  • Find good formulas for all the classes (suggestions are welcome)
  • A more large UI with dynamics number of rows that can go above ten
  • Maybe a way to change formulas on the spot
  • Localization

Known Issues
  • Localization is no longer supported.

update for 4.x ?

Is there any chance of this getting patched to work with 4.x version of the client? I've just recently returned back to wow and always loved this addon for my alts. I'll post error log if needed. Thanks for your hard work!

Even if the enchanting window was just a list of current equipment, the ability to push the AC button and get the full list of enchant able gear would be huge. And would be really great if it could make suggestions, like the other crafts.

For Glyphs I was thinking you push the AC button and get a window the same but with the number of Glyph spots that they have available and if the already have one in the slot. Would be a big help to ensuring you have all you alts and friends Glyph'ed up.
I'll loot into it but my time on AC is very limited these days. The main issue with enchants is that it's very hard to model their effect. The best one procs and you cannot evaluate what is good by parsing the tooltip and assigning values to what you see there.

Saving the glyph for each toon is doable. I'll see about making a window for that although there would be no suggestion since trying the best glyph based on tooltip parsing is pretty mush impossible.

ArmorCraftCache still needed? It wasn't in the d/l
Thanks, I'm glad ppl use it. As for ArmorCraftCache, you need it if you want to see your alts stats and don't have RPGOCharacterProfiler.

I didn't find a way to upload optional files on WoWInterface and that's why it's not here.

I just wanted to say that I'm aware of the config not working for formula editing. This is an issue with Ace3 config and hopefuly, it will be solved soon.

The target function does not seem to be working for me on the beta, and I do have your cash addon loaded, "AC: Error ArmorCraftCache doesn't know NAME" And I have inspected the person, unless I am doing something wrong, I do not know why it is not working.

Also, some classes have different kinds of gear that is useful to them, take shaman, for example, healing gear, caster gear, and melee gear, I think you should add an option to look up what kind of gear would be most useful to those roles, with a selection option, without having to go to options.
I'll check into the the target problem you are talking about. Unfortunately, I'm away from home this week and have no access to WoW beta or live.

Right now, you can only put one formula by class. On the other hand, AC can only compare to items that a toon is wearing and it's not possible to wear your DPS and Healing set at the same time so the workaround for now is to change the formula in AC when you equip another set so that AC will compare it properly when logged on another toon. If you have more then one toon of a particular class, it's not much help though. It is my objective to be able to use multiple formulas for each class but I'm not sure how to deal with the different sets yet. I'll probably have to interface with something like Outfitter or ItemRack.

Given the limited amount of time I can put on AC these days and my very limited ability of building GUIs in WoW LUA, you should probably not hold your breath :-).

I was indeed AWOL but I'm having a bit of time now and am trying to work on AC.

I've started adding the neck and trickets slots but I still have lots of testing to do. I'll try to release something soon so long as it is not less stable then the version before.

Sorry about that guys.
