    Default Zolotips - Addon to help decide who gets loot

    I've found it rather frustrating trying to figure out which of my toons should get loot. Despite searching long and hard on these forums and the net at large I couldn't find a simple solution. I took action and scratched together an addon to help. The addon just adds some info to equippable item tooltips. It goes through party members and list items that match the same slot. All I'm interested in is the iLvl, name of item and owner, from that I can decide who gets the loot.

    E.g. In the screenshot for looting Crystalline Cuffs, an ilvl 18 blue item the addon adds the following to the tooltip
    Zolapr [18] Crystalline Cuffs (blue)
    Zollock [5] Armbands of Praise (white)
    Zoloma [17] Mystic's Bracelets (green)
    Zolos [16] Feral Bindings of the Owl (green)

    Using that info I decided to give the item to Zollock because that char had the most to gain.
    The text is printed in the colour of the item quality and the format is: player_name [ilvl] name_of_item



    Known problems: When this addon is installed you can't manually inspect properly. I don't need to inspect, so it isn't a problem for me.

    Disclaimer: It was written in one evening and has not been tested.

    The addon is attached.

    Questions and Answers
    Q: Are you planning on doing more work to the Addon?
    A: No, I'm not planning on it, but I probably will make updates.

    Q: Does it work with a group, or do you have to set up a 'team' like with Jamba?
    A: It uses "Party1" to "Party5" for inspecting so it should work in any Party. Other party members do not need the addon installed.

    I would be interested in something similar to this, though i think what you've made so far is the "light" version of what i'd want hehe.

    I love when you mouseover an item how it brings up the stat differentials and such, but i'd like to have a whole window at the top center of the screen that shows the tooltip for each party member with their name at the top, when mousing over gear to check. i like seeing all the details. Any chance you can make it do that? lol

    Interesting idea, for certain. Does it work with a group, or do you have to set up a 'team' like with Jamba? I think I'll give it a go for my PvE team, since I manually have to switch to each window when I dole out loot.

    I think + or - to stats would be my next upgrade to this addon.

    Thanks, I hope it works for you. I'm not sure how much work I'll put into this addon as I like to keep things as simple as possible for my purposes. I created it out of a moment of frustration without any planning and figured I'll share it.

    Yeah the addon is very light . During my work commute I was thinking of a similar window, so I must say I like your idea . I think setting it up wouldn't be too hard, but there might be some technical challenges I'm not aware of. It might also get quite messy for items such as rings that fit two slots.

    Looks like a nice addon, but would require frequent updates depending on how the theorycrafting changes. I think that's outside of my scope for this addon. I might put in some simple stat comparisons as angeldeelite suggested.
