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
  • Stored inspection results can be added to player tooltips
  • 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: 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: 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: Options to configure mouse clicks for icon and Group/Database tab actions
    • Doubtful: Make options take effect immediately and have cancel revert to previous values
  • Detection:
    • Maybe: When item level is scaled down, show true max as well as current scaled down values
    • 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: 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

    Hey all,

    Just a heads up. I converted from Subversion to Git and at one point there were several older releases listed as the most recent release. Long story short, please ensure you are using 5.4.20-release or higher.


  • #45

    Hello, I was having a problem with geary not remembering the interface scale each time I log in. It keeps reseting and I have to go back into options and click okay even though it shows the right scale. Also is there any way to show a person talent choices like in player score?

  • #46

    Hi OceaNuss,

    Yes, Geary was not properly honoring the saved Interface scale when it loaded. This was a bug which I just fixed in the 5.4.16-release version. Thanks for the report!

    Sorry, Geary does not show talent selections and I'm not sure it is approriate for Geary to gather and show them. I have "Detect unspent talent points" as a maybe in the ToDo list, but most max level characters use their talent points so this hasn't been a priority.


  • #48

    I only ask because of arena 3v3 games. I can see them the the dfault blizzard inspectg option and I want to see them in geary so I can see what my partners choose so I can change up my talents depending on what we face and what they choose.

  • #43

    Does this have support for the newly-added +4 item upgrades?

  • #44

    Hi meljen,

    Just to clarify, I updated Geary to 5.4.15-release, but there were no code changes required. From my testing, Geary is fully compatible with the new T16/TI gear change from 2 to 4 item upgrade levels.

    If you notice any problems, please let me know.

    My newest 90 (instant) is now having problems seeing your logo on the character page.It worker for a couple weeks but now I am unable to use it. (just on newest character)  It works on all the other 90s like it should.

    Hi BootDancer,

    Glad you found the icon. One thing for future reference is that you can increase the size of the Geary Interface and Geary Icon to make finding them easier. Both are clamped to the screen, so if you tell them to show, they are there somewhere!


  • #37

    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.

    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.
