About Geary

Geary is a lightweight addon to examine equipped gear of yourself and other players. Key features:

  • It shows a summary of all items with their gems and enchants
  • Missing gems, enchants, belt buckles, and unfilled upgrades are noted
  • Missing parts of the legendary quest line (Eye of the Black Prince, Crown of Heaven legendary meta gem, and Cloak of Virtue) are noted
  • Shows equipped item level and number of item levels necessary to reach next item level milestone (e.g. 460 for MV LFR)
  • Can store inspect results for later review and external parsing
  • Can show a summary of all stored inspection results for members of your party/raid including an overall average item level
  • Because the WoW server controls what inspection data the client receives, retry when necessary

Geary Icon

The Geary icon is a handy button for doing Geary operations:

  • Left-click dragging moves the icon
  • Left-clicking inspects your current target
  • Middle-clicking toggles the Geary Interface
  • Right-clicking inspects yourself
  • Mouse button 4 toggles the Geary options
  • Mouse button 5 inspects all members of your group or aborts the current group inspection

Geary Interface

The Geary interface has several tabs for reviewing inspection results:

  • The entire Geary interface can be moved by Left-click dragging it
  • Player tab - Shows detailed results of the most recent inspection
  • Group tab - Shows the database stored inspection results of all party/raid members
    • If a player's inspection data is not in the Geary database, the player's details cannot be shown
    • The average iLevel of members with inspection results is shown at the bottom
    • Right-clicking on a row will attempt to reinspect that player
    • Left-clicking on the header will toggle the sort order between by name and by iLevel
  • Database tab - Shows all database stored inspection results
    • Right-clicking on a row will attempt to reinspect that player
    • Left-clicking on the header will toggle the sort order between by name and by iLevel
  • Log tab - A detailed account of what Geary does during an inspection

Slash Commands

Geary has slash commands for all important operations as well as some debugging operations:

Shows usage
/geary inspect <self | target | group>
Use Geary to inspect yourself, your current target, or all players in your group
/geary ui <show | hide | toggle>
Show, hide, or toggle the Geary interface
/geary icon <show | hide | toggle>
Show, hide, or toggle the Geary icon
/geary options <show | hide | toggle>
Show Geary's options
/geary debug [on | off]
Show current debugging state or turn debugging on or off
/geary dumpitem <itemid | itemlink> [slotname]
Dump detailed, debug information about an item. slotname is case sensitive and can be Head, Neck, Shoulder, Back, Chest, Waist, Legs, Feet, Wrist, Hands, Finger0, Finger1, Trinket0, Trinket1, MainHand, or SecondaryHand.

Key Bindings

Geary supports key bindings for all useful commands. Go the Game Menu -> Key Bindings to manage them.

Geary Macro

You can also use a macro to invoke Geary inspections. For example, the following macro makes left-click inspect your current target and right-click inspect yourself:

/run if SecureCmdOptionParse("[btn:2]") then Geary_Inspect:InspectSelf() else Geary_Inspect:InspectTarget() end


You can leave comments on the AddOn page and project page or open a ticket for bugs/requests.

To Do

In no particular order, here are things Geary does NOT do yet, but I am considering:

  • Database:
    • Maybe: Show details of inspection on hover/click
    • Maybe: Sort by clicking on any column header
    • Maybe: Filter results by Faction, Class, Level, etc
    • Maybe: Ability to remove individual database entries
    • Doubtful: Store results for multiple specs
  • Group:
    • Maybe: Show details of inspection on hover/click
    • Maybe: Sort by clicking on any column header
    • Maybe: Show ^ and v icons for players above and below group's average iLevel
  • Player:
    • Maybe: Add hyperlinks explaining what's missing in summary text
    • Doubtful: Add options to control the font of the summary text
    • Doubtful: Empty sockets shown with their graphic
    • Doubtful: In item tooltips, show set pieces worn and empty extra sockets of the inspected character
  • Options:
    • Maybe: Make options take effect immediately and have cancel revert to previous values
    • Maybe: Options to configure mouse clicks for icon and Group/Database tab actions
  • Detection:
    • Maybe: When item level is scaled down, show true max as well as current scaled down
    • Maybe: Detect non-rare MoP gems and non-MoP enchants
    • Maybe: Show items with PvP stats
    • Maybe: Show items with inappropriate stats (e.g. Prot Paladin wearing Intellect gear)
    • Maybe: Detect unspent talent points
    • Doubtful: Detection of profession perks (e.g. enchants on rings, sockets in bracers/hands, etc)
  • UI:
    • Maybe: Ability to lock the position of the icon and interface
    • Maybe: LibDataBroker compatibility (display results and clicks for operations)
    • Maybe: Store window locations in options so addon load failures don't force you to reposition them
    • Maybe: Add non-English client support via localizations
    • Doubtful: Inspection results added to player tooltips
    • Doubtful: An optional minimap button that works like the icon and can integrate with Norganna SlideBar
    • Doubtful: Resizing of Geary interface
    • Doubtful: Detecting empty extra sockets from a belt buckle/EotBP instead of extra gems
  • Sync/Report:
    • Doubtful: Sync database entries with group, guild members, or specific players
    • Doubtful: Sync current group entries with group, guild members, or specific players
    • Doubtful: Report current group details and/or summary to officer, guild, raid, or specific players

    Would love to see a reporting option. To report to raid, officer, party, etc. Maybe only report who's missing what after a full group scan has been completed.

    Thanks! Love the addon!

  • #40

    In my 25 man raid group, there are very few people that are missing required items or below the item level we want -- so I just mention them in the appropriate channel. However, I think this would be a decent additional to Geary, so I've added it to the ToDo list.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Glad you enjoy Geary.

  • #36

    Hello i would like to know the meaning of CoH Meta... thx a lot =]

  • #38

    Maybe it means Crown of Heaven?


  • #39

    There are three abbreviations that track progress of the legendary quest line:

    EotBP = Eye of the Black Prince weapon socket
    CoH = Crown of Heavan meta gem
    CoV = Cloak of Virtue


  • #35

    can we work on a ptBR localization? just tell what i have to translate. ty

  • #33

    First wanted to sy thanks for the sizing option, looks and works great for me.

    Second thought of somehting maybe to add, on the right side you have various checks for legendary, Enchant etc. How about adding an Heirloom check adn the total bonus Exp % being gained? Simple to verify I'm wering the available gear and what bonus I'm getting.


  • #34

    Hi dblose,

    Bonus XP isn't something I think Geary should be tracking. Geary is really meant to look for missing gems, enchants, etc which are meant for end-game characters. End-game characters aren't likely to be wearing heirlooms.

    Glad you like the scaling.
    Thanks for the suggestion,

  • #31

    possibility to lock (fix position) the inspect button would be nice

  • #32

    I've added locking the Geary Icon and/or Interface to the To Do list.

    Thanks for the suggestion,

  • #28

    Nice AddOn. I switched to this from GearScore/PlayerScore. Liking it so far.

    Feature requests:

    +1 request for scaling. On my monitor the window is a little small. If I could scale it, that would be awesome.

    Option for ESC to close window. I really dislike AddOn windows that don't close when I hit ESC. I know that some people would prefer it the way it is now, so if you could add the option to close on ESC, that would also be awesome.

  • #29

    I added "Allow Esc to hide the Geary interface" as a maybe in the To Do list. The only reason it's a maybe is when I looked at that several xpac's ago, it had a bunch of really annoying conditions that won't work with Geary's interface. Regardless, I like the idea. Multiple Esc's should eventually clear the entire UI of all dialogs, including Geary's interface.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

  • #30
    5.4.12 release

    The 5.4.12 release supports hiding the Geary interface via the Esc key.

    Thanks for supplying the solution, Voreck.

    Re: Geary - Missing enchant


    I have applied the Engineering enchant Sysnapse Springs on my hands but geary is howing it as missing an enchant - will you have a look at it

    My Char can be fpund on armory as Dlavroth from EU-Vashj

    Best Regards

  • #26

    Hi bskalkam,

    Engineering Tinkers do not count as Enchants. You can have both an Enchant and an Engineering Tinker on an item. In this case, I suspect Geary correctly found a missing Enchant.

    Note: Detection of profession perks on gear is listed in the To Do list as doubtful simply because the WoW API does not return a character's professions when you inspect them.

    Thanks for the question,
