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.

Thank-you for the update.
I still need to gem my gear and this is my preferred way to work out what I want.
Looking forward to your fully revised version.

I have temporarily updated it to work with patch 3.0.2. This isn't a rewrite yet, nor is the data in it updated for Wrath.

Yea now that teardrop living ruby and runed living ruby are the same. I really think they should just delete one or the other. As well as all the other duplicates.

Is it possible to just get stable version for the pre-wrath gems? The built in JC profession window is terribad for gem cutting.

It's on my list of mods I am updating, which is 8th on the list.

Look for an update some time next week. It won't be too soon, since I need to factor in all the new gems in Wrath, as well as all the gem changes (stat merging).

Hello, I intend to fully rewrite GemHelper in the WotLK to have a more friendly and better looking GUI. However, I have not started work on it yet, because right now, my priority is on writing Omen3 before patch 3.0.

Hence I have neglected checking back on this page for user comments.

Perhaps I am just missing something obvious, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Hi, GemHelper is intended not to interact with items in your bank, as most of the time, you have no gems in your bags, and you are cutting gems for other people that have just traded you some gems, so you just want to see what you can cut with the gem(s) that people have traded you (which are now in your bags).

Hello, deleting the ".svn" folder that is found inside your GemHelper addon folder will allow WAU to update it. I had packaged that folder accidentally in v1.5 of GemHelper.

If you cannot see this folder, make sure that you can view hidden files in your Explorer. (Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> (checkbox) Show Hidden Files and Folders)
