The Upgrader
Version: 1.2.5
by: Kcir [More]
This Addon makes upgrading a simple mouse click away!

With a click on the durability frame The Upgrader will search for armor that is an upgrade for you.

It will search for stat upgrades and weed out duplicate auctions, keeping the lowest priced item of the duplicates, this is listed by the Auction House default sort (Lowest Bid).
The search may take a second or two to complete but it's generally not long.

All the default stats for your character class were based off of a Brady Games Stategy Guides book on Cataclysm.

The default stats are class and talent tree specific. i.e. - If you're a Protection Warrior your default stats will be Armor, Strength and Stamina. And if you're a Marksmanship Hunter your default stats will be Agility, Hit Rating, Haste and Critical Strike.

Note: If your default doesn't include armor you will have upgrades show that have less armor but more of another stat such as Agility. This is by design... In theory if you're a Hunter you shouldn't be hit (I know it's not going to play out that way) so an increase in Agility and Critical Strike is more usefull to you.

There is an Options page so you can search for more stats than the default if you desire. Also in the options are a few quick helpers I added for myself, such as, opening all your bags when the Auction House opens and automatically searching for an item you're selling and a quick 5 silver undercut. The helpers can be turned off.

ALL comments, suggestions and complaints welcome.
Without feedback I cannot provide the best addon for everyone, so keep the suggestions coming!

---------------------------------------------------------------
v1.2.5-
Got the multiple page thing taken care of, sortof. I added code to use the update function (time/elapsed) and sometimes it searches too fast and will return no results but after hitting the button again it does.

v1.2.4-
First off I regret not updating sooner, I have an excessive amount of things going on in my life recently.
I fixed most of the bugs that were allowing the auction house to lock up.
I removed the ranged slot since it was removed as of last patch.
I noticed that some of the duplicates that were being automatically removed were cheaper than the one that was kept (I had it setup to take the first item of the duplicates in the list, which I thought was the cheapest by default) got that reworked to save people some gold.
I haven't done a lot with the new specs so I'm not 100% sure everything will be completely accurate. The characters I've tried to upgrade seemed to work fine.
I have the main hand and secondary slot turned on right now...

I did a quick update to remove the multiple lines of text I was adding for debugging.
*NOTE* - The weapons or any other item may not work if there is multiple pages of results from the scan.

v1.1.2-
The weapons are still disabled but I fixed the issue with Auctionator's Full Scan....

v1.1.1 -
Temporarily removed the Main Hand, Off Hand, Ranged
I noticed while I was testing some new stuff I'm working on that the bid and buyout aren't always accurate ( I bought an axe when I meant to buy a gun )
Until this problem is dealt with you won't be able to Upgrade weapons.

Sorry for any inconvenience...
v1.1.0 -
Completely changed the look of the addon
Added Trinkets, Rings, Back, Neck, Main Hand, Off Hand, Ranged
NOTE:
Whenever you search for upgrades on your weapons it may take longer than usual, this is a result of searching the entire weapon catagory for upgrades.

Also the weapon upgrading is not 100% yet still refining the search parameters to show the best results possible. It should show upgrades alright but it's not tweaked to perfection yet.

I made it a default for all characters under level 10 (and higher without a talent spec) to only search for upgrades on Armor and DPS.

I have noticed there is still a bug whenever something is highlighted it will occasionally make the Gold/Silver/Copper icons disappear. Still haven't figured that one out yet.

* Since I changed so many things please keep an eye out for bugs I'm not aware of and report them to me, no matter how miniscule they seem. *

v1.0.3 -
Fixed error for characters under level 10
Hopefully fixed bug where gold/silver/copper icons disappear whenever upgrades are highlighted...
v1.0.1 -
The bug with Upgrader and Auctionator has been fixed.
Whenever you click on the potential upgrades it will no longer write info to the chat frame.
Fixed the bug that wouldn't let you Buyout or Bid on occasion.
v1.0 - Initial upload

Thumbs up In development

Just a quick update guys, I have started working on a means of highlighting items in bags if they're are a suitable upgrade. I feel like this addon isn't as efficient as it should be so I'm attempting to streamline it a little at a time... I'm still not that well versed in Lua so if anyone sees something that could be simplified or changed for efficiency don't hesitate to send me a message.

Thanks to everyone for their support and feedback.

I'm back!

After close to 7 months of not playing I'm back and have the initial update submitted.

*Bug noticed* - Whenever the list of items is greater than one page (50 items) the addon doesn't seem to handle it at all... Also I noticed a lot of the comments I added for debugging haven't been turned off so I am sorry for the massive amount of lines filling up your chat frame. (And any curse words that may appear... I have a pure hatred for bugs

Hentaya, I have not intention of trying to check for upgrades on other people or alts at this time...
It is a goal of mine to keep this addon as bloat free as possible and to try to keep it from needing other addons.

If the demand becomes great enough I may look into it but I would prefer not. I have thought about applying the techniques I use on the Auction House to normal vendors so that regular upgrades will be highlighted, I have also thought about trying to do this for the normal items in the backpack. For now I'm trying to ease back into WoW and coding.

Feature requests before even using it! :)

Just grabbing this now. Would be totally Awesome if it would access other data in my system to see if one of my alts has a non-soulbound item that can be an upgrade! And THEN, it would be even MORE awesome if I could examine a person and see if I have any upgrades for THEM.

Course, that would probably mean accessing Carbonite data, or Altaholic, or any other number of addons that keep track of multi-char information, buuuuut.

An option to merely upgrade iLevel would be nice, as well. My apologies if that's already been done.

Looks shiny though.

Edit:: Oh, and hi Rick.

4.3

Since WoW 4.3 The Upgrader locks up WoW whenever clicking on an item to search. This happens with The Upgrader 1.1.0 and 1.1.2 and the standard Blizzard Auction frame or Auctionator.

Thank you.


I guess this isn't gonna be fixed. It was nice while it lasted!

Thanks for the feedback! I personally don't use Auctionator so I didn't think about what my addon would affect... I had the same results with the full scan once I found the work-around, it was not consistently pausing during the processing phase. HOPEFULLY the pause isn't cause by The Upgrader

I am still working as hard as possible to fix the weapon search issues, with work and family I haven't had alot of time to work on it.

Thanks again,
Kcir

Edit: Did the scan with The Upgrader disabled and no pause at the end, will do another full scan in around 15 mins with The Upgrader enabled again just to double check.

Edit2: Did another scan with The Upgrader enabled again and no pause, I guess it was just the time of day that I scanned. It was about 10pm when the freezing occurred and around 10am this morning with no freezes.

A suggestion for people who are still freezing. if it is at a busy time try going to a more remote AH and see if the freeze still occurs.

I haven't even tried to use Upgrader yet - I have to uninstall it so I can do my AH scans.

Re: Re: Re: Problem with Auctionator Scans

Oh, I'm not sure how The Upgrader would affect the Auctionator scan? I have no background searching or cataloging going on and I paid careful attention to not do any full scans of the auction house with the upgrader functions. I will download Auctionator and see if I can replicate this problem, so I can see how to rectify it.

I appologize for the inconvenience.

What were you trying to upgrade? I've had significant slowdowns on some of the new stuff added... I've been trying to refine it and make it easier on the game client. As far as I know all the main pieces (Head, Shoulders, etc.) shouldn't have any real drain on the auction house, some of the new stuff I had to search multiple catagories to display all of the potential upgrades, which does take its toll. I'm still new to programming lua and working with addons. I haven't found very much information about working with the auction house efficiently, and I can't make heads or tails of most of the Auctionator code.
I appreciate you telling me of the issue and I will be working on correcting it dilegently.

Newest Update

You asked for it and I provided. I would like to thank you Amemir for the suggestion, it helped motivate me to update.

I really liked the durabilty frame but it looked out of place with the trinkets, rings, cloak and necklace added in. I tried several combinations of things trying to make it look "professional" but it never panned out.

I've toyed with the idea of a single button to show all upgrades for every piece of armor but (unless I figure out a different way) that would require a full search of the Auction House, and I would prefer not doing that, to reduce the risk of crashing WoW. As it is searching for weapons can put a significant drain on the Auction House and I'm only searching through the weapon catagory.

I'm trying to figure out how to fix the bug with the Bid & Buyout icons not always showing up properly, so far it has proven difficult to nail what's actually causing the icons to disappear. I do plan on trying to make the upgrade buttons reflect when your bid is the highest (like the Browse Tab).

Thanks for the support and suggestions/bug reports.
