About Altoholic

Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic :)

Altoholic is an Ace 3 addon written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one addon. The main feature of the addon is the search functionality which allows users to search their alts' bags or loot tables in an Auction-House-like frame (see screenshots). All this with multiple-realms/accounts support.

About the addon & the author

I've been playing WoW since the European release, and I used to rely on addons like character viewer to check my alts' inventory, but since it was more or less abandoned and not always stable for me, I decided to write an addon myself and to improve the search feature as much as I could. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do :)

The addon has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It's still not final, and although it has considerably evolved since the initial release, there are still a lot of things I haven't had time to implement yet.
Please note that this is my first addon, and that English is not my native language.

Features:

- Languages supported: enUS, frFR, deDE, esES, ruRU, zhCN & zhTW.

- Account-wide data summary:

  • Characters' talents: Full talent trees & glyphs are supported for both specializations.
  • Money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account.
  • Bag usage: see at a glance which characters should get bigger bags (bag size, free slots and types included)
  • Characters' skills: skill summary on one screen, namely the 2 main professions + the 3 secondary skills as well as riding. I may add more if there's demand.
  • Reputations: a list of all the reputations of the current realm's characters. You can see at a glance if all your alts are at least honored with Honor Hold if you want to get the new 2.4 blue PVP set. Suggestions on how to grind reputations will be available soon.

- View containers (bags, bank, keyring) of all alts, on all realms.

- Guild banks : You have 10 alts in 10 different guilds on the same server, all of them with access to a guild bank ? Not a problem, you can see them all here.

- E-mail: allows you to see which alts have mail without having to reconnect them. The addon will tell you when mail is about to expire on a character. Threshold configurable (up to 15 days). Multiple realm support as well. Mails sent to a known alt (one you've logged on at least once) will be visible in the addon without having to reconnect it.

- Equipment: See the equipment of the current realm's alts in one screen. Very useful when purchasing stuff for your alts at the AH. Multiple realms supported. Right-clicking any equipment piece will allow you to find an upgrade, this feature is similar to the official wow armory feature, and is quite performant, even though it doesn't match the accuracy of the official one.

- Search: the most important feature of the addon, it uses an AH-like frame to display search results. You can either search bags on the current realm, on all realms, or a loot table.
The loot table is a table based on AtlasLoot, but which contains only item id's, and therefore keeps memory usage minimal.

The Search menu allows you to find items based on their name (even partial), level, type or rarity, almost like at the AH. It is also possible to search known recipes.

- Quest Log: See the quest logs of all your alts, as well as an indication of which alts are on a specific quest. Clicking on a quest link in the chat log will tell you which alts are on that quest.

- Suggestions: Currently, only profession leveling suggestions are available when mousing over your current level in a specific profession. Suggestions are based on the leveling guides posted on the official US forums (credit goes to their respective authors). The addon also suggests you where to quest/grind xp depending on your character level.

Suggestions were also added for the most recent factions. More to come later.

- Auction house: You can see which auctions/bids you've placed with an alt without being logged in or being at the AH.

- Professions: You can browse all known recipes in a thotbot like frame (see screenshot).

- Mounts & Pets of all your alts.

- Achievements are tracked for all you alts (see screenshot).

- Guild Members: a list of your connected guildmates, along with their alts (if they're using Altoholic too), and their average item level. Clicking their AiL will also allow you to "remotely" inspect their equipment.

- Guild Skills: a list of altoholic users in your guild, along with their alts and direct profession links. All professions are available in one click.

- Guild Bank tabs: a list of altoholic users and the time at which they last visited the guild bank. If you haven't visited the guild bank for a few days, you can remotely update your local data without going to a capital city.

Credits

  • I'd like to thank my guild, Odysse├╝s on EU-Mar├ęcages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done :)
  • Thanks to the wowace community, you've been very helpful and this addon would not be there without the technical answers you gave me (especially Xinhuan, author of BankItems)
  • Thanks to all the guys who are behind AtlasLoot, keeping the loot table up-to-date is a tremendous work, and the search functionality of Altoholic would not be what it is without your hard work.
  • Thanks to Ayindi (wowace) & sLiz3r (curse) for the German translation.
  • Thanks to NightOwl (wowace) for the zhTW translation.
  • Thanks to Wang (wowace) for the zhCN translation.
  • Thanks to Hellbot for the ruRU translation.
  • Thanks to Laumac for the frFR translation.
  • Thanks to IrregularByte for the esES translation.
  • Brykrys for the LinkWrangler support.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As with every new expansion, many things have changed in the API, and it is REQUIRED to clear your Saved Variables for the addon.
This means cleaning the following files in \WTF\Account\<your_account>\SavedVariables : Altoholic.lua & All DataStore*.lua

There WILL be bugs if you use your old files without cleaning them first.
Some fixes to work around API changes are too time consuming, so cleaning is required. A meager price to pay once per expansion.

    This actually comes in handy if you use the account sharing option which allows you and another player to share you Altoholic database.
    The "all accounts" is for displaying your account's character(s) as well as all your friends'.
  • #3103
    Is there a way to check how many badges/emblems your characters have? If not, could I request that that be implemented at some point?
  • #3226
    Yes, you can check that on the "currency" tab (on the character's details tab). Then you can select either "pvp", "raid", etc... to see the corresponding badges/emblems.
  • #3101
    my version seems to work great. haven't seen an error from this addon in a very very long time.
  • #3095
    I've looked on the comments, and I don't think I've seen my particular error, so, here it is. Thanks for a great addon....I'm a complete Altoholic!

  • #3093
    Long story short I have 2 guilds 1 has old name, and 1 has new name. both are same guild just has a capitol letter when it was recreated.
    First How do I just remove old guild?
    Second can you make an option to remove data check box, right click or somthing?

    and 3rd when it is updating is it posible to resize the window after you tell it what data your looking for?
  • #3091
    Hi....First off...Thanks for this mod...Have been using it for quite some time.

    The only thing imo that it needs to be the ultimate alt tool, is a way to track what instances and raids you are saved to on all alts.

    Dunno if that is possible though, but I REALLY need a function or an addon that does that :P

    Thanks....
  • #3227
    Done with the last versions. Just put your mouse over the alt - and you'll see all the tags it has with the tagID and the instance/raid name and format (10 or 25 players).
  • #3092
    I thought that was in options somewhere that shows you on the canender for item cooldown and dungeon resets.
  • #3089
    Don't know what they mean but I am getting these more often...

    I would definitely say it's a mouse-over problem like a tooltip addon that has broken or that is used with another addon that does the same function.

    The tooltip of Altoholic and the one of GearScore have the same problem, which I would attribute to PaperDoll - whatever it is.

    But I am no lua expert.

    I deleted 2 low lvl toons on WoW, but they are still showing up in Altoholic. Is there anyway to get rid of them?

    Sorting question/issue. Curious as to why the rested column is sorted like this.

    Hello,

    I like this addon very much, it is so helpful! But there is a little problem I could not solve until now: every time when I am getting into the game then in the chatlist on the left side there are listed all the dates of long time passed gild events, but these dates are long time ago and they are over. How can I manage to get the old and long-time-ago dates out of the calendar?
    Thank you for an answer, regards, Werner
