GemHelper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.2
by: Xinhuan, tiker
Search, filter and craft gems in the game!



For non-Jewelcrafters, GemHelper serves as a encyclopedia for gems much like what AtlasLoot Enhanced is for instance and reputation loot. With many search filters for the exact gem colours, stats and materials, users can quickly find the best gem to socket into their new equipment without having to harass a Jewelcrafter or check a website about what gems are available.

For Jewelcrafters, GemHelper goes a step further and allows users to craft gems directly from the GemHelper UI with extra options such as 'Have Materials' that Enchanters currently have. Jewelcrafters are also able to replace the default Blizzard Jewelcrafting UI.

The gem tooltips will list the materials needed to craft it or the location where the gem can be found/purchased. Currently, the database contains 565 gems. All gems should be (more or less) safe to query the server for (the link) because if someone has the gem on the server (in inventory, bank or socketted in gear) and has logged on since the last server reboot, it will be safe to query.

To use GemHelper, type /gh or /gemhelper ingame. If you are a Jewelcrafter, you open the GemHelper window by pressing the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbar or spellbook.

This addon can be used along with CraftList2, ATSW, Skillet.


Quirks:
If you open the GemHelper window via the slash command (/gh or /gemhelper), you will not be able to craft gems from it. You must open the GemHelper window via the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbars/spellbook. This is NOT a bug and is a limitation of the WoW game engine.


What I need:
Localization needed for Spanish. GemHelper will currently work for English, French, German, Taiwan, Chinese and Korean clients.

I know this was not in your previous versions. But is there a way to possibly make it sort by Uncommon, Rare, or Epic as well?

This is indeed annoying. Is the event fired when you opened someone else's jewelcrafting the same as the one triggered when you click someone's tradeskill link ?

This is funny in some weird way... I was gonna post a comment with a link to a work in progress update of GemHelper.

Well, you'll find my version here: http://blog.ankh-morpork.net/2008/12...the-lich-king/.

What gems have you added ? So far I'm done with Huge Citrine and Monarch topaz based gems. Maybe you haven't added them yet ? I doubt it

I'm willing to help you if you wanna save some of your braincells !

Edit: it seems that you haven't done the Monarch Topaz yet. Hah

My schedule is still very busy, and doesn't allow me to update this addon as quickly as I would like to. Note that I am a Jewelcrafter myself and I understand everyone's feelings on this.

Looking up the 150 or so new gems in Wrath and keying in their data isn't trivial, on top of modifying existing ones due to stat merging.

If the author doesn't want to update this addon, could someone else please do it? I don't know anything about creating or maintaining addons otherwise, I'd give it a shot.

This is a great addon and when properly updated, it works beautifully but without the new info from Wrath, it's pretty much useless right now.

I see that Omen, Gathermate and a few other addons are updated regularly, but not this one. Curious as to why the author doesn't update this one as well.
