About EggTimer

Monitor the remaining duration on your Mysterious Eggs and other perishable items. These items (and their durations) will be hardcoded in as they are requested. Items are only properly detected when you first receive them. Item detection is disabled when the Trade window is open, in order to prevent detecting old items.

This is an Ace3 addon, with support for LibDataBroker. A minimap icon is available for those without a broker display.

You can find the official forum thread here. You can help with localization here. You can report issues and feature requests here.

Known Issues:
If you are experiencing tooltip duplication with DockingStation, be sure to disable DockingStation's tooltip scaling features for EggTimer.

Version 0.4 has been largely rewritten and will lose your data from 0.3. However, we have nice Consortium information now, and new features will be much easier to add in future.
Version 0.3 prompts you to create a Calendar event for when your egg will hatch. A summary of perishables on any of your characters is available on the FuBar/LDB/DBIcon tooltip. You can configure announcements so you'll be notified when your items expire.

Detected items:
Ahn'kahar Watcher's Corpse
Disgusting Jar *
Mysterious Egg *
Zorbin's Ultra-Shrinker
(* indicates that Calendar events will be created for this item)

    I got this addon and after I bought my egg. I have like 10 hours left on the egg, but it is not detecting it. I'm using ChocolateBar and it just says no perishables. Any ideas?
  • #25
    Sorry for some reason I was not notified of this comment and just now happened upon it. The next time you purchase an Egg it should detect it just fine. The problem is that it only starts the timer upon purchase of a new egg. Let me know if problem was resolved or not.

    Has there been any consideration to adding hearthstones to this? Would make it a bit nicer to juggle hearth CDs while running errands on multiple characters.
  • #26
    I don't think this can easily be done with this addon. Now with guild perks you may have a lower cooldown than other people. If enough people are interested I'm sure we can do a work around but one other thing to consider is that the way this addon is coded is it will start a timer upon obtaining an item. You will never obtain a new hearth unless you destroy it and talk to an innkeeper again. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  • #23
    I would think that could be done. I'll check into it, thanks for the suggestion.
  • #20
    Is there any way to add a tracker? I have a masochist friend that would just love to know how many thousands of eggs he's opened in vain for the green proto drake.
  • #22
    That is not a bad suggestion. I suppose people would want it to be 'off' by default considering the luck my friend had. He went a year without getting a green proto. I on the other hand make sure to remind him of my mage/hunter/shaman and rogue who have theirs.

    v0.5.1 of EggTimer is uploaded. It has been updated for game version 3.3. Only difference between last version and this one is you no longer need to 'Load out of date addons'.
  • #18
    Goodbye folks, see my farewell post here:

    As I no longer play WoW, EggTimer will need a new maintainer. Let me know if you're interested.

    any chance of getting the fubar plugin back, or even as a separate addon?
  • #15
    try "Broker2Fubar" :D and ull get eggtimer on your fubar !
  • #12
    Demonica, thanks for reporting this. I've hopefully corrected this issue.
    Eniac72: the hardcoded duration for Mysterious Eggs and Disgusting Jars is now 6 days and 20 hours as you have discovered. Thanks.
    v0.4-beta4 should be syndicating as I type this.
