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.

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.

    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.

    If a shield or other item has a socket and the socket is empty, you should warn about it

    if you open the characterpanel, <c> , you should see a frame with your own items attached on the right side of the panel.

    I love the listing of the items. How can we see this list of items for our own player? Can you do a self-inspect? I'd like to see it for what I have currently equipped, and maybe even see a list like that for each equipment set I have. If I have to equip first, that would be ok, but a bit more cumbersome.

    I suggest to parse reputation rewards next: this relations are perfectly fine &&

    help with items you can buy

    i don't think heroic items arent as important for raids yet as you make it look like.
    Right now, not many people wear those items, as soon as they do, the data will become available in wowhead ;)

    I'm working on it. I hope to have a version with most of the new items ready in the next few days. Can't promise it will be complete though. Since I can't use the armory anymore I have to rely on Wowhead. Unfortunately their data isn't complete, for example they don't have drop information for heroic raid items.

    "A version with Cataclysm items is scheduled for early January"
    how about this schedule? ;) Early january in my opinion wont last much longer
    and i was wondering if we could get some info on new prices, items and as mentioned the gemmed state of items. Not sure if a beltbuckle is returned as enchant though ;)

    For some reason my IE window attached to my character frame is overlapping the char frame scroll bar a bit making it nearly impossible to use the scroll bar. Anyone else having this issue?
