Athene's Gear Check  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.73
by: Athene_ [More]

This addon will quickly and easily give you information about the gear of the target player or yourself. Also tells you the item level of items.

The information on the gear is given as the average item level of the equipment, colored in a fitting color (red for bad gear, green for good gear).
If the avg ilvl doesn't mean anything to you, look at the color.
If the color isn't accurate enough for you, look at the avg ilvl
However, remember that the avg ilvl doesn't tell you that the player is properly geared. For all you know it might be a resto druid in epic feral gear

The coloring of the quality is scaled to the level of the player, so the addon is just as accurate for twinks and levelers as for lvl80's.
To make the quality of BoA items accurate, they will count as a green\blue of the same level as the player.

For those extra curious, the addon will also count and list how many items the player has of each rarity(green\blue\epic etc). Just remember, an epic item isn't always very good, it could be a lvl80 still wearing lvl 70 pvp epics. So don't use the item rarities to figure the gear quality of the player.
IMO this information is most useful for quickly figuring the reason of the avg ilvl, or checking if the player is geared with BoA.

The targeted player must be in range to be inspected. Once the gear information is aquired, the addon saves the information for later when the target is out of range.
You can also check the gear of players of the other faction, but only if you are allowed to inspect them (sanctuaries).

IMO the information given by the addon is most useful when you want to know if anyone in your party or raid has crap gear. It will be very, very easy to make sure noone in the raid is geared in lots of greens.
It could also be a way to see if your twink or low lvl char needs upgrades.

Commands:
- /agc : gives you a list of possible commands.
- /agc lookup (playername) : gives you the saved info on that player.
- /agc report (playername) : reports your saved info on the player to raid/party.
- /agc report (number) : reports to raid/party all players in raid/party that have an avg ilvl lower than (whatever number you want).

Additional features with Recount installed:
- List of the avg ilvl of everyone in the party/raid.
- Print the list of party/raid ilvls to whereever you want.
- Mouseover a player in Recount to see exactly what gear the player is wearing.

- Fixed 2 bugs related to checking your own gear quality.
- Fixed a bug related to item tooltips.

1.3:

- No longer adds text to tooltip for NPC’s.

1.4:

- The addon will now save the equipped gear at every scan, to make the Recount plugin more useful.
- Fixed some tooltip errors.

1.5:
- Fixed a small bug causing error msg.
- Removed ilvl on items
- Added command /agc (playername) to check database for a player’s gear

In the background AGC probably inspects that other person and therefore your inspect bugs cause WoW can't inspect 2 persons at the same time.

Hope this info helps
Goodie, I just recently started suspecting something like this.
I'll see if I can get around it now that I know what causes it.

I have seen this myself, but every time it happens I just inspect someone else and the problem goes away by itself. It's kinda hard to figure out if this is actually caused by AGC and why, since the problem goes away so fast...

- 881 Athene, a main belt asteroid
- Athene (owl), a genus that contains two to four living species of small owls
- Athene Seyler (1889-1990), English actress
- HMS Athene, an aircraft transport
- USS Athene (AKA-22), an Artemis class attack cargo ship

I'm tired of that question tbh. There are 45468923420 Athene's in WoW and the rest of the world. Btw, try /agc ingame

Hey Athene,

I got some of the guild into this add-on and we all love it, except the constant update chatter.

As others are stating, it is causing DCs now and I think all of us I know with it have agreed its AGC and cant use it.

Is there any ETA on a fix for this?

Like a I said, a great add-on over all and thanks for your time on this.

I don't have this addon and I don't want it however you really need to fix how spammy this addon is through the hidden addon channel. Someone in the WG raid I was in had this addon and sent me over 500 messages through the addon channel in a 10 minute period.

This level of "communication" with non-addon users is completely ridiculous.

disconnects

i too get disconnects mainly in dalaran or in raids and it seems that this addon is the cause.
it generates LOTS of traffic even if i play solo, dont do anything and dont target or mouseover other players.
that traffic seems to cause the disconnects. I guess its generated by the synch-feature. any chance of getting an option to disable that fetaure?

i really like this addon and appreciate the work you've done, but i had to disable it and i'd reallly liek to re-enable it.

Nice
I totally agree with the link, buggy gear score addons was the main reason why I made this addon.

I noticed the same, but I haven't found the cause yet

The first time it happened it was only with one person in the raid, everyone else I could check. Since then it got worse and worse to now when it seems it happens almost every time. Sometimes it seems like if I get like RIGHT up next to them and try again it will work, but sometimes still no. But I did test it the other day by trying several people and not having it work, relogging without the addon and trying again without problems, relogging with it and problem returned.

I'm going to try deleting the cache, maybe something there got corrupt, and see if that makes a dif. I'll let you know.

I've noticed an issue with this addon that seems to happen most often when I'm in a raid, but I see it randomly around town too. WIth the addon running, when I try to inspect someone I can't see their gear tooltip (or shift click it in to chat), when I hover it just shows the type ("Ring", "Trinket", etc). Disabling the addon and reloading brings it back to normal.

I LOVE this addon and so far am just copign with not knowing what people have, but I'd really really love to get this fixed. Thanks.
