LootMenu Class Looting

Addon Support Statement

NEWS: I'm back in WoW. I'll try to update addons after catching up, especially if they are bugging out.

Addon Description
What is Magic Looter?

Magic Looter is an addon to make master looting easier to manage. Specifically it will automatically loot Bind on Equip or non-binding items to people of your choosing. There are two recipient lists - bank items and disenchanting. Every time you open the loot windows, Magic Looter will scan the items and using the predefined lists will send the item to the appropriate recipient. If none of the players on the predefined list are available as loot recipients, the item will be looted to yourself.

Note that this is only useful for master looting. It doesn't do anything if there is another loot method use. Also note that it is primarily designed to work with uncommon loot threshold, it can be used with any threshold. However the higher the threshold, the lower the value of the addon.

Is that it?

No, there's also an optional addon that replaces the Master Loot menu. It adds class sorted looting (instead of group based), random roll tracking and quick looting to self, disenchanter or banker. There's also an option to start a new DKP bid (that hooks into MagicDKP Bidder). Looting done via the addon will also be recorded in MagicDKP if present.

Why do I need this?

I wrote this because my guild collect all greens for disenchanting, later used to provide free enchants to raiders, and I got tired of manually distribute master loot items.

It is likely we'll see the return of both epic gems, BoE patterns and BoE crafting materials in future WotLK raids which greatly will increase the value of the addon.

Development Status

Early production. Auto-loot and master loot functionality works great.

    Actually that's my bad. Not using the library but forgot to remove the reference. r4 should do the trick.
