TipTacTalents - Show Player Talents in Tooltips
Using this addon, you will see the talent specialization of players added to the tooltip.

A cache up to 25 is stored for the last scanned players, so you quickly can see their talents again without having to wait for talents to load.

To avoid inspect issues, TipTacTalents will not request talents if you have an inspect frame open.
That includes the default inspect frame, as well as the addon Examiner.

There is no command line switch or configurable options for TipTacTalents when used alone.
Using TipTac and TipTacOptions however, you can change the cache size and the option to turn it on or off.

This addon is also included as part of the TipTac package, but is released here on it's own, for those who do not need special tip customisations.
You can find the main TipTac addon package here:

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 Sep 05
- Now shows the talent spec even when the tooltip shows yourself.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 Sep 01
- Removed some remnant debug code.
- Fixed a talent inspection issue that could occur, if the inspection window was opened from the unitframe's right click menu.
- Localised the string used for when a person has no specialization.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 Aug 30
- Changed the TOC version to 50001 for the 5.0 Mists of Pandaria patch.
- Moved inspect frame check to a helper function.
- Added a second inspect frame check for the scheduled inspect.
- Modified the code to support the changes in the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
- Removed the InspectPaperDollFrame.lua @ line 23 inspect workaround.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2012 May 20
- Changed the TOC version to 40300 for the 4.3 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2011 Sep 29
- Changed the TOC version to 40200 for the 4.2 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Nov 23
- Will no longer clear the inspect data when done. This was causing an issue for inspection addons, as the data they requests, was getting cleared by TipTacTalents.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Nov 17
- Added option to only show talents for people in your party or raid.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 27
- Actually fixed the "InspectPaperDollFrame.lua" error this time, no really, I swear!
- The variable "lastInspectRequest" used to throttle how often inspecting is done, by checking when the last request happened, has been made into a global, meaning other addons are welcome to use this as well.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 19
- Showing talents on your own tooltip, no longer overwrites the previous person in the cache.
- Made a workaround for the "InspectPaperDollFrame.lua" error that were happening once you had used the default inspection frame at least once.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 14
- Major rework of how TipTacTalents is allowed to inspect, these changes have been done to lessen the strain on the inspection routines.
- There is now a delay of 0.2 seconds from when the tooltip is shown, to when the talent request is done. This was to avoid wasting requests when moving the mouse quickly over a crowd of people.
- An inspect request can never happen more often, than once every two second.
- Unit GUID is now used to make sure the returning data from an inspect request, is indeed who we wanted data on.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Oct 12
- Changed the TOC version to 40000 for the 4.0.1 pre Cataclysm patch.
- Made compatible with the changes to the Cataclysm API.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2010 Feb 27
- Changed the TOC version to 30300 for the 3.3 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Aug 13
- Changed the TOC version to 30200 for the 3.2 patch.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 May 17
- Cleaned up the code a bit.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Apr 17
- Changed the TOC version to 30100 for the 3.1 patch.
- Will now show the proper spec, for people using their secondary spec.
- The tooltip line added will now be localised.
- Optimised the code a bit.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Mar 28
- The tooltip line added will now be localised.
- Optimised the code a bit.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Mar 13
- Occasionally the TipTac fadeout could get halted because of an update from TipTacTalents, I've fixed this by not allowing TipTacTalents to call "GTT:Show()" to resize the tip during fadeout.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2009 Mar 12
- After some more testing with adjusting the trottle time, it seems that compeltely removing it, that is setting it to zero, actually seems like the best solution, at least this is where I found the least mixed talents. Please let me know if you're still seeing wrong specs in the tips.
- Made some minor code changes.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Nov 05
- Increased the throttle time for talent queries from 0.25 to 0.75 sec, hopefully that fixes some more of the problems with wrong talents listed on tips. But they will still occur with rapid mouse moving.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Oct 22
- TipTacTalents will no longer request talents when the default inspect window is open, just like it already does when the Examiner addon is open.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Oct 16
- Changed the TOC version to 30000 for the Wrath of the Lich King patch.
- When Examiner is installed, and opened, TipTacTalents will not request talent info, as this would cause problems in Examiner's talent tab.
- If the player has no talents, it will no longer state the name of the first talent tab and (0/0/0), but instead: "No Talents".
- Changed the default cache size up to 25.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Jun 11
- Changed the default cache size up to 15.
- Player inspection has been throttled, hopefully that fixes some problem with talents showing up on the wrong player.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Apr 06
- Added some different formatting styles for the Talent line in the tip, you have to edit the Lua file to change it though, by uncommenting some lines. Look at line 17 and after.
- Removed the obsolete 2.3.3 inspect checking.
- Fixed a nil error that could happen under special circumstances.
- TipTacTalents should no longer block you from getting the talents of same faction players who are marked for PvP.
- Cached players who are now out of range should now show with the cached data.

TipTacTalents Changes | 2008 Mar 24
- Initial Release.

It doesn't really matter which you use. Usually the one coming with TipTac will be the newest, but I will do a seperate release here if needed or something major was changed.

This error is actually caused by the default inspection frame, still listening to the inspection ready message. I'll try and see if I can add some kind of workaround so this doesn't happen. Reason I never noticed this is, that I run with Examiner, which is replaces the default inspection frame.

Patch 4.0.1 Inspecting Issue
The current patch, which at this date is 4.0.1, has a bug that can cause the whole inspecting features of WoW to break down, causing all further inspection attempts to fail. The only way to fix it once it has broken, is to restart the client.
This issue was known even back on the PTR, and now here it is on live. I have yet to pinpoint what exactly causes this breakdown.
The issue is in fact perfectly replicable without any addons at all, and is not caused by any of my addons which uses the inspection features, TipTacTalents or Examiner. It is however possible, that exceesive inspection can speed up this process.
I do not expect a fix for this until we get a new patch.

I receive this on the beta every time I mouse-over someone.
Code:
1x TipTacTalents-10.10.27\core.lua:51: attempt to concatenate field '?' (a nil value)
TipTacTalents-10.10.27\core.lua:97: in function <TipTacTalents\core.lua:94>

Locals:
self = TipTacTalents {
 0 = <userdata>
 current = <table> {}
 nextUpdate = 1.8589999999851
 cache = <table> {}
}
event = "INSPECT_READY"
guid = "0x01000000004BA4EA"
current = <table> {
 name = "Baddaboomer"
 guid = "0x01000000004BA4EA"
 unit = "mouseover"
}
GatherTalents = <function> @ TipTacTalents\core.lua:28:

That's odd, that means its unable to receive talent information, even though WoW reported that inspect data is ready. Maybe something changed on the beta, or its just a bug?

If anyone else is seeing the same, or you know of some change regarding inspection, please let me know.
