Mendeleev is best known for his work on the periodic table; arranging the 63 known elements into a Periodic Table based on atomic mass, which he published in Principles of Chemistry in 1869. Dmitri Mendeleev was born at Tobolsk, Siberia in 1834 and died in 1907.
Mendeleev, the addon, adds all kinds of information on top of the information provided by Blizzard to almost all item tooltips. It is currently not in a state where I'd consider it ready for general use; but if you want to try it out then go ahead! :)
It also depends on the ancient LibPeriodicTable, which frankly is no longer maintained or properly updated. Perhaps things will move forward and get fixed for Cataclysm, but perhaps not.
If, however, you wish to file a ticket to request a feature or report a bug, you're most welcome to do so on the project page for Mendeleev on wowace.com.
This addon doesn't work with Bagnon in tbc. they throwing errors at each other and bagnon is completely broken cause of it. otherwise I use it but I would like to use updated version of it if you don't mind.
Any idea if this will be successfully ported to Classic? Would love to know where and who drops certain items :)
In reply to Wyveryx:
The main task is porting LibPeriodicTables which is providing the data.
Current data is for 8.x and while some parts are still correct for classics, others aren't (e.g. due to tradeskill materials being simplified, instances being changed, ...).
I'm on it but it will take some time...
In reply to Wyveryx:
There's a similar addon named "UsedInReceipe" which doesn't use LibPeriodicTables but just scans the actual known recipes of all characters. But it's good enough until Mendeleev is back on track.
In reply to Luc1972:
I am currently using that one, the part of Mendeleev that I miss, is seeing what wep or armor drops from whom and the rate :)
thanks though for the info
Astonishingly enough, this actually works in Classic. It doesn't recognize which professional recipes your character has learned, so they are all red (Unobtained), but otherwise it's pretty solid and doesn't throw errors. Which is quite surprising, actually.
I'll have a quick look at the code and see if I can fix the part that scans for known recipes.
Good time of day. Is the addon still supported?
I'm not quite sure, but the last update LibPeriodicTable was September 19, 2018. This corresponds to patch 8.0.1. Is there more updated information for this addon? For example, tips for items from Legion or Battle for Azeroth?
FYI: The data this addon uses is from LibPeriodicTable, which has been updated for 7.3.5.
I replaced the old version in the libs dir with the new one and it seems to be working fine so far. :)
I just installed Mendeleev to give it a try, by curiosity. It works but, like with other outdated addons, it's impossible to modify any option in its GUI : anything you'll check will return to its previous position once 'okay' has been pressed... And drop-down menus won't even open.
Is there any chance of update in the future ?
Thanks for the good work anyway... Cheers !
Do you plan any update for legion mats?
Is there any way I can set the max number of items that appear in the tree?
You should be able to. I know you can turn the tree off anyway - as I do, since you can just check that stuff off on your chars with the profession.
I would really like an option to limit the used in tree to not consider some of those particular transformations, or limit the depth of the tree to one or two steps, so I don't see the full transmute cycles and everything that can be made with the other essences as well.
This would made the tree more useful, whereas currently for those items with long trees, I end up looking them up on a website, which was what I was trying to avoid in the first place by using Mendeleev. It could also reduce the performance impact, but that might be primarily an issue of how frequently the tooltip is updated.
You can turn the tree off completely. I still shows "used in" for the professions, which is enough information IMO, as you can just check your chars profession list.
Same thing as Informant (see Auctioneer) pretty much. It displays a bunch of extra information regarding items, such as recipe use, classification and stuff.
Is a very nice addon
