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.

5.4.004 (07/10/2013)

- Fixed showing the item source for crafts in the tooltip.
- Fixed LibCraftInfo.

5.4.003 (06/10/2013)

- Created and added support for 3 new libraries : LibCraftInfo, LibCraftLevels, LibCraftReagents.
These libraries intend to replace the lost functionality caused by tables reset to zero in LibPeriodicTable.
I now have my own dataminer, so these tables should be easier to maintain when a patch hits.
I also cleaned up some hard coded tables to now use the libraries instead.
Overall, the addon now consumes a little bit more memory, but the data sources are way more complete than before.
- Replaced the internal list of recipes by LibCraftInfo.
- Fixed the Characters -> Profession pane no longer showing reagents due to LPT changes.
- Fixed the Grids -> Tradeskills pane no longer correct due to LPT changes.

    This is an incredibly useful tool for crafting and alt-addicts like me. I donated, and I hope it helps with continuing the development of the addon.

     

  • #4872

    My Curse annual subscription is supposed to pass on the fees to these addon developers.  I hope that's actually working out. :-)

    This is a very nice addon, I also hope it will be useful in MoP.

    Any idea when the add-on will be available (either on your website or via curse?

    Thank You Thaoky for this awesome addon.  Can't wait until you have time to update, (less we not forget  priorties like family and work)  ;-)    I too have just made another donation, (last one was well beore Cata and ashamed to admit that I missed getting one in after that upgrade), but I just wanted to let you know that I refused to fail to show support and appreciation for your talent this time around.   Keep up the Great Work!  Looking forward to using this again.  Cool

    When does EU patch happen?

  • #4868

    It´s been out since wednesday.

  • #4865

    I think I always knew, and if not, it's very clear right now. Having played with this addon, makes it very tiresome to play without it! I donated too :)

  • #4864

    I donated too - again! Donated for the Cata version too. This addon is so essential! Can't play without it. Thanks for all your hard work, Thaoky! Can't wait for the new release!

  • #4863

    Glad to hear an update is coming.  Donation made gladly.  I shudder to think of going back to the days of logging over and over and over because I wasn't sure who had what, did what, needed what, etc. 

     

  • #4862

    Donating, because I never realized until now how much I rely on this addon. Hope to see the update soon!

  • #4861

    Just threw some money in the donation pot because I love this addon so much :) 

  • #4860

    This addon is one of my must haves, thanks for the work, I really miss it.

    Re: Altoholic 5.0.4 update

    Looked at the addon in more detail and can't beleive the amount of data you have to go through for this update Thaoky!  Understand this takes time and a LOT of effort...  (some of us do actually have a dayjob and other responsebilites outside wow <ghasp>).

    I know you are working on it (you said so in your post Smile), and just to keep you positive while reading through the huge amount of programming lines in Altoholic and the DataSore files, I just put in a donation for this addon!

    Keep up the great work!

  • #4858

    Start the donations people! ^^ I am using this addon for years, its time to show some appreciation! ;-)
