ShinyStats 2.0

ShinyStats has been completely rewritten in order to make it easier to maintain, improve performance significantly and clean up the code.

Some of the new features include:

  • Caching
    Heavily utilizes caching of pattern results, improving performance significantly.

  • Toggle Colors
    You can now enable/disable individual colors, as well as resetting them to defaults.

  • Profile and Per-Spec Profile support
    You can now enable per-spec profiles!

  • Useful Artifact Relics
    Color the Artifact Relic type based on it's usefulness to you (Unusable, Usable, Usable (Active Spec))!

  • Procc chance Equip transformation
    Transform certain Equip: effects to more clearly state their use and effect!

  • Primary Stat
    Recognizes players current specializations primary stat, and colors it accordingly. Eg. In the text "... increases your primary stat by 1,600.", the part "primary stat by 1,600" would be colored as Agility, for a rogue, and as Intellect for a mage.


ShinyStats was inspired by a mod called StatStain, made by Nymbia in 2007.
Its goal is to make various stats of an item easy to separate from each other and make usefull stats easy to distinguish.
Perhaps you would like all stats not beneficial for your class to be greyed out, while usefull stats have various happy colors? No problem!


  • Colors the various stats of item tooltips (including the comparison tooltip)
  • Replaces the word "and" in sockets/enchants with the separator of choice – sentences such as "+25 Agility and +15 Hit" becomes "+25 Agility, +15 Hit"
  • Configuration is done using Blizzards addon interface
  • The color of each stat can be customized to fit the needs of the user
  • The various extra features provided by the addon can be turned on/off
  • Profile support


  • /shiny or /shinystats to view command line options
  • /shiny config to view the blizzard addon interface controls for ShinyStats
