InspectEquip with default inspect interface and item levels in the equipment list

InspectEquip attaches a panel to the inspect window that shows a list of the character's equipment sorted by source (i.e. Raid: Dragon Soul, Vendor, Crafted...). This gives you a quick overview of a character's equipment.

InspectEquip also adds detailed item source information (including boss names, item prices for vendor items etc) to all item tooltips.

Currently supported items include (no green items):

  • All raid items with detailed boss information, including Mists of Pandaria raids
  • Dungeon drops for all instances
  • Quest rewards for dungeon/raid quests, including legendary items
  • Justice/Valor Point items
  • Honor/Conquest Point items
  • Reputation items sold by faction vendors
  • Crafted items
  • Darkmoon Faire items, including the cards and the new rewards
  • The Kirin Tor rings sold in Dalaran
  • World Event items
  • The Argent Tournament rewards
  • Guild Vendor items

InspectEquip also works with Examiner and includes support for cached Examiner characters.

Please report bugs and missing items in the ticket system or leave a comment on this page. If you want to contribute a translation, please visit the Localization page. Thank you!

WoW 6.x/Warlords of Draenor support:

The latest version of this addon is compatible with WoW 6.0. Please note that the dungeon and raid drops are updated automatically via the Encounter Journal (i.e. they should be available immediately when a new WoW patch is released). Other data, such as vendor or crafted items, still require an addon update.

    FWIW, I just tested, modifying an existing item link to be marked as Warforged causes GetItemInfo() to return the modified item level, so AFAIK the item levels should all be correct.

    Can you give me an example item link for a Thunderforged / Warforged item that isn't handled properly? Item levels are handled by my addon LibItemUpgradeInfo-1.0. I know Warforged is done with a new Bonus ID system, but I don't have any such items to test myself.

    Thunderforged and Warforged items don't seem to get detected by the addon.

    First of all sorry my English is poor, this text is to use the network translation, for this addon I have some suggestions:
    Can the item database is divided into two parts, one containing classic WoW to Burning Crusade, the other part contains the Lich King to Cataclysm, or simply as part of the Cataclysm independent.
    This can reduce the resource consumption, because as more and more database objects, this addon will be more fat, so that players can load their own needs with the database, if so it is perfect.
    Thank you!

    @yoshimo: Go

    The items you linked show the correct source for me... For the belt you can try to reset the database in the InspectEquip options, since that item should come from the encounter journal. I hope that works.

    Concerning gem checks: I didn't have time to include that yet. The main reason why I didn't include it previously was that the gem information is (or at least was when i last checked) not yet immediately available when inspecting. At least I had that problem with the Examiner integration. Therefore, this will require quite a bit of testing, because I don't wan't to incorrectly label all items as missing gems.

    Reforging: Yeah, I will include that, too. eggsampler also posted code for that, but I don't like the solution of just displaying the first 2-3 characters of the stat name, because that doesn't work well with international versions. The full stat names are too long. A possible solution would be to add short forms (i.e. Int, Crit) to the localization database. I don't know if there is a better solution, but I wanted to check if something like this is already available.

    Missing belt buckle: Thanks, will look at that.

    @yoshimo: Go and other cloaks are also missing gemchecks ;)

    2 more ideas:

    You already include LibReforging info, i think it would be better to show what was reforged into what instead of the plain [R]

    Missing belt buckle: RetardCheck has some code that identifies wether you have a buckle or not. I think that's worth including is shown with unknown source

    Also you miss gemchecks on the relicts: and other have prismatic sockets

    I though about using the Encounter Journal, but did not yet have the time to try it. Also, the Encounter Journal is very nice for Cataclysm raids and dungeons, because it contains verified data - but it unfortunately doesn't contain any drop information for the older instances, so I would still need to get the drop information for those raids and dungeons from somewhere else, which means more work :(

    Therefore (and because I also need other stuff such as vendor items), I decided to focus on creating a new database just like before, but with updated data. I currently get most of my data from Wowhead, but they still don't have all the 4.3 data (and also data for some old instances/raids is incomplete/wrong, which sucks). So, yeah, I might have to look at the Encounter Journal. But maybe Wowhead will update their database in the meantime ;)

    Thank you for pasting your changes to include missing gem warnings and the reforging text. I'll have a look at that next week and will probably include it :)

    Hi emelio, have you ever thought about using the encounter journal for some of the new 4.3 raid/dungeon items?

    I started to make my own inspectequip before I realised you were still updating this in alpha/beta state, and I had asterisks showing if items weren't gemmed or gemmed for socket bonus (not really critical, but informative) as well as adding reforging text instead of just [R]. Not sure if you want to include any of this, but the code is here: (from B: 1.9.9-beta1 for 4.3 )

    Hey everyone. I have just uploaded a first alpha version of the next InspectEquip release. This version comes with some pretty big changes, so it may still contain some bugs.

    The biggest change is that it includes a completely new item database. Here are the most important differences:

    • All item sources are current as of Patch 4.2. This means:
      • In general, the tooltip shows how the item can be obtained right now, not how it might have been obtained by the player.
      • Old currencies (e.g. Emblems) are no longer included
      • Items that are no longer available in game are no longer included (e.g. T3)
      • The item price represents the current price. This will be updated with each patch, so for example items that could be bought using Valor Points in Patch 4.1 are now listed with their new Justice Point price.
    • The way tokens and upgraded items are handled has changed.
      • Items that are bought from a vendor are now listed under the vendor category. This includes T-set items that are bought in exchange for a token that drops from a raid boss.
      • All items that are required to buy an item (i.e. tokens, points, non-heroic items) are listed in the tooltip, including source information for these items.
      • Therefore, the information about the token drop location can still be found in the tooltip.
      • Also, heroic upgrade items are supported, including the full item cost (e.g. token + non-heroic item).
    • The categories have been restructured
      • All items bought from a vendor (including Justice/Valor/Honor/Conquest items) are now in the vendor category.
      • This also means that the PvP category has been merged into the vendor category.
      • Heroic zones don't use a separate category anymore. Detailed drop information is available in the tooltip (this is not yet implemented, but will be added soon).
    • World drops are now included
    • Items obtained from world events are no longer included. (They may come back at some point, but the list is very difficult to maintain)
    • Currently, some items don't include the boss they drop from
      • For items that are looted from chests etc., the name of the chest is currently displayed instead of the boss name. I plan to fix this, but it may take some time.
      • Some items don't have boss information, even though they only drop from one boss. This mostly affects some tokens.

    There are still some items missing in the database. Here is a list of currently missing items that I am aware of. If you find other missing items, I would appreciate a report.

    • Items upgraded using Crystallized Firestone. These will be added very soon. Fixed
    • Items bought from the Guild Vendor, especially the Heirloom items. Fixed
    • Items bought from the Molten Front vendors. Fixed
    • Most legendary items. They will be added as quest rewards to their respective raids soon. Fixed
    • Some raid items that are not listed on the corresponding Wowhead pages. This will require more time to fix. So far, I am aware that the following items are missing:
      • Some (most) Firelands trash drops
      • Some Firelands boss drops, e.g. item 71023 (dropped by Shannox on normal mode)
    • The ilvl 245 and 258 T9 items
    • Most Hyjal Summit items (which also affects T6 items)

    These changes are currently only available as an alpha version (i.e. only on Wowace or using the Curse Client). When I have added some more items, I will release a beta version.

    Note that 4.3 items are currently not included, but the addon works fine on 4.3 (in fact, the TOC is updated to 4.3, so "Load out of date addons" needs to be enabled if you want to try the alpha version on 4.2). The database will be updated to 4.3 after the patch is released.
