GemHelper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.6
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.

At this point, you can now see the gems your jewel crafter can cut, but the status shown by GemHelper *should* be the status the gem will have for the toon you're logged in with.

GemHelper pulls the tool tip information from the server so it should show you the same information the actual gem will have for the toon.

Fed up with gemcutting....

and wondering if this might help.

tl;dr: does this do anything to account for the stats of a gem varying by the toon using it?

Explanation:

I have a L90 jc, and a number of lower level alts. My L67 rogue got a leather vest that was lower in agility by 14 and stamina by 26, but had haste and crit and I don't recall what else. It had three gemslots. (I can't remember where) I looked for something that I thought would show what cuts did how much of what stats, and found that Shifting Dreadstone would do ag and stam, and two of them would more than take care of the loss, leaving the third slot for something new. I made the gems, and sent them to my rogue alt, only to find out that for that toon, Shifting Dreadstone is +5 ag, +8 stam - which is not what the numbers where when my JC looked at it.

(in writing this, I don't recall how much the shifting dreadstone would do, and I can't find where/what I was looking at.)

So what I need to know is, if I am making a gem for a less-than-max-level character, will this help me tell, accurately, what the stats will be for that less-than-max-level character?

and please don't say 'it's not worth gemming if you're not max level' cause I'm *sure* twinks gem their gear when possible.

This is an awesome mod that I don't know how jewel crafters can go without. Blizz should really consider something similar as a replacement for the existing interface.
