Mysterious Egg

Monitor the remaining duration on your Mysterious Eggs and other perishable items. These items (and their durations) will be hardcoded in as they are requested. Items are only properly detected when you first receive them. Item detection is disabled when the Trade window is open, in order to prevent detecting old items.

This is an Ace3 addon, with support for LibDataBroker. A minimap icon is available for those without a broker display.

You can find the official forum thread here. You can help with localization here. You can report issues and feature requests here.

Known Issues:
If you are experiencing tooltip duplication with DockingStation, be sure to disable DockingStation's tooltip scaling features for EggTimer.

Version 0.4 has been largely rewritten and will lose your data from 0.3. However, we have nice Consortium information now, and new features will be much easier to add in future.
Version 0.3 prompts you to create a Calendar event for when your egg will hatch. A summary of perishables on any of your characters is available on the FuBar/LDB/DBIcon tooltip. You can configure announcements so you'll be notified when your items expire.

Detected items:
Ahn'kahar Watcher's Corpse
Disgusting Jar *
Mysterious Egg *
Zorbin's Ultra-Shrinker
(* indicates that Calendar events will be created for this item)

    I just love this addon, but the missing 4 hours on the timer of the Egg annoyed me, so I located the duration and added the missing time to it myself.

    Here's how to do it yourself, if your egg still needs 4 hours even tho it should be ready:

    Open ItemDB.lua, edit line 18 and change the value 244800 to 259200, and save it. This will add 14400 seconds to the timer, and make it right.

    Thanks for a great addon :)

    v0.5.1 of EggTimer is uploaded. It has been updated for game version 3.3. Only difference between last version and this one is you no longer need to 'Load out of date addons'.

    Goodbye folks, see my farewell post here:

    As I no longer play WoW, EggTimer will need a new maintainer. Let me know if you're interested.

    Thanks Kaz, it seems I've made a few unwarranted assumptions with the OnReceiveItem code, and I'm guessing you had a Cracked Egg or some other similar item waiting for you when you logged in. This isn't fixed in beta2, but should be in beta3 which will be out later today hopefully.

    Thanks again. /hug
    Expect at least a Beta soon. My development time has been fairly limited until just recently, and I've always had big plans for this addon. Stay tuned!
