I'm thinking about writing a plugin for AdiBags that moves all the Archeology items into their own category. The basic items like the bought crates that give x amount of y faction are easy to get the itemIDs, as are the drop slot items that give 12-20+ to a faction relic. What I don't know quite how to handle are all the white items that you right click to create the currency for the crates.
There has to be several hundred, if not a few thousand of the white items by now, with more coming each expansion and/or content patch. I was thinking about scanning the player's inventory and bank bags for a text field, but I do not think there is a global string to match. Localization is not a big deal in that case. But what kind of code chunk would I use to do the scan? I do not think it is a scan of the tooltip, as that would require the player to mouse over each item first, and that is very inefficient.
