Spelltips  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: SpellTips 3.2.0
by: phizi0n [More]

SpellTips is an addon that will modify your tooltips to show approximately how much damage or healing a spell will really do with Spell Power gear equipped. All tooltips are affected now even pets (only water elemental's currently) and the trainer window are supported so you must disable it from the UI screen to see base values anywhere. It is simplistic by design and coded to be very efficient.

Plans:
- Find appropriate modifiers for the spells currently supported. - ongoing effort
- Clean up code - ongoing effort
- Translation - need people to report errors and try to fix them
- Hope for Blizzard to realize what a mistake it is for them to not be doing this in the default UI and then get it done themselves so that the values will be truly accurate. - expected 9 months after I quit the game ;p

Known Bugs:
- Several spells have slightly inaccurate values due to lack of information, please test and give feedback.
- Localization is up to users to help fix, if you notice something not working then look in the locale file for your language and fix the patterns to match the text for the spell correctly. If you really can't figure it out then post your language and classes of your characters and I'll update them.
- Glyphs are not supported and I have no plans to support them because although some glyphs are very straight forward in the effect they give, others drastically change spells and would be a nightmare to accommodate so I'm discriminating against them all.

3.2.0 Update.

I've updated it to correct many spell coefficients and a few talents, especially for elemental shamans and affliction warlocks which are my newest alts. I don't have wotlk (ezmode content isn't worth buying) so I can't test >70 spells.

This addon hasn't needed any major changes to the code, all it needs is for people to point out errors with coefficients so that they can be updated. You can edit the coefficients and talents in SpellTable.en.lua relatively easily.

Post bugs to the curseforge bug tracker and include a link to your talent build, what the tooltip says, and what the spell actually does. http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/project-3271/tickets/

Try DrDamage on wow.curse.com; it doesn't do exactly the same as Spelltips, but it does display the actual damage on the icon itself (just fiddle around with the options for a little while)

Database sites don't have the information I need for translating new spells so I need people to help do it. If you want things working for your class in your locale then please look in the SpellTable.en.lua file, copy it to your SpellTable.[locale].lua file over the old entries, and then translate it all yourself. The format is fairly easy to understand, just translate name, pattern, and pattern2. After you've checked and made sure it works for all spells then post it here or if you have trouble let me know.
How to translate the "pattern" and "pattern2"? I thought it was the string before or after the value,but I failed to using it in Chinese client.Maybe I misunderstand this.

It would be hard for me to test, when I don't know/remember the base amount in order to see how much of an inaccuracy there is, but I will look elsewhere if I decide I need an addon like it again, thanks for the comment.
Testing is now directed at WotLK beta testers only as indicated by my "'complete enough' for BC" comment. You don't need to know the base values to tell if the tooltip is accurate, either it is or it isn't. If it isn't then you list all relevant info such as reported values, actual values, how you tested, what talents you have, etc.

I did entertain the idea of adding a command to suspend it which should be part of my overhaul but that's the closest you'll get from me. Bloat can go elsewhere.

It sounds like with the consolidation of spell damage and healing into spell power that blizzard will finally be fixing a bug with healing spell tooltips that was introduced in 2.0 and has lasted throughout BC. The bug being that talents which modify healing by a percentage wouldn't update the base tooltip. I've had a hack in to try to get it close but it was never quite right.

There haven't been many updates for this addon because it was in a state I considered "complete enough" for BC. With all the new spells for WotLK I will have a lot of work to be done nailing down coefficients and how talents interact with one another. Any help finding info and posting in these comments will be greatly appreciated.

But with 2.3 this need to be updated with the new spell bonus given to Power Word: Shield an d all those Wards =/

With 2.3 due out soon the accuracy of the healing spells at least, is a little off. On my priest on the PTR there is additional gains to Lightwell, Circle of healing which will have to be recalculated. I'm sure there are more but I've not been able to copy my pally/druid/shammy

Any clue on about how accurate this is yet? Or should I continue waiting a while until more bugs and miscalculations are fixed.

Small bug

Prayer of Mending (level 68 Priest spell found here ) is having the "jumps" or hops calculated with the +healing bonus.

It should be only 5 jumps. And I have tested it with only this add-on enabled.

Other than that, keep up the good work

Well I still haven't gotten any translation updates so I've changed the format to be simpler for other locales. All new spells still need translations and several old ones could use some polishing to make the captures work better. The project has always been flagged to allow others to upload files or you can just post them in the comments.
