About Moncai Compare

About Moncai Compare

EquipCompare. Many have used it, many loved it. Then, Blizzard added it's own implementation. However, this requires you to hold the shift key every time. Not anymore! MoncaiCompare is a lightweight addon with zero overhead to bring you the comfort of the original EquipCompare using as much as Blizzard's own code as possible.

Automatically showing comparison tool tips in the bank, at the auction, in your bags, in the dungeon journal, when looking at quest rewards and when clicking item links. Replacement for EquipCompare.

Moncai Compare works also great when used together with Pawn and/or RatingBuster (when it's updated)!

New in 6.0.2

  • Full Warlords of Draenor compatibility! Squashed (hopefully) the last remaining bug. Code is now fully checked against latest Blizzard libraries for a seamless experience. If you still have problems, don't hesitate to create a ticket so I can investigate and solve your issue.

New in 6.0.1

  • Warlords of Draenor support. If you encounter any problems, don't hesitate to create a ticket so I can investigate and solve your issue.

New in 5.3.0

  • New! Dungeon Journal Item tips now shown on the left side, or as far left as possible

New in

  • Tested to work in all languages and localizations, including ptBR and itIT.
  • Now also works in the dungeon journal
  • If, for some reason, you temporarily don't want to see the comparison, simply hold the comparison modifier key (usually shift)

Known Bugs

  • Currently no known bugs. May or may not work with certain bank / inventory / item based addons. If you come across an addon you would like for Moncai Compare to work with, please create a ticket.

Your feedback

I value your feedback. Please let me know if the addon does or does not work for you.

    So, I'm currently using this mod. I have the Ursol's Claw weapon on my monk and previously I had been using Venomspitter(MH) and Eater of the Dead(OH). Ursol's Claw is 31.83 dps with 18 agility. Venomspitter is 22.31 dps with no attributes paired with Eater of the Dead which is 19.42 dps with 8 agility and 5 haste. According to wowhead, under their page for the dual-wield passive, the formula for calculating dual wield vs 2h dps is: dual wield effective dps =  0.76 x ( [Main Hand Weapon's DPS] + ( 0.5 x [Off-Hand Weapon's DPS] ) ) versus 2 hander effective dps = 0.95 x [2-handed Weapon's DPS].

    So I enter in 0.76x(22.31+(0.5x19.42)) = 24.34 versus 0.95x31.83 = 30.23. So I'm thinking, the staff has more agility and more DPS using this formula, so I use the staff, yes? The mod in game tells me (with Ursol's staff equipped and mousing over the Venomspitter): If you replace this item, the following stat changes will occure: (With Eater of the Dead equipped in you roff-hand): +9.9 dps -10 agility - 30 stamina +5 haste.

    So to me it sounds like it's telling me the two dual wielding weapons are better dps, but I'm not understanding how it's arriving at this and causing me to question if I should use the mod.

    Hi Kizoja,

    The stats that are shown are calculated by Blizzard and not in the addon. Using Moncai Compare should therefore give accurate information except when there is a fault in the WoW client itself.

    I hope this puts your mind at ease!

    Kind regards, Moncai

    Unfortuenately, that still leaves me confused about why I get different results calculating it with the formula on wowhead versus what the mod shows me. Thanks for the reply.

  • #119

    Somehow it is not showing the comparison stats at all.  Is there some kind of options for it to turn on or seomthing?

  • #117

    New version is ready! Enjoy!

  • #116

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks to the volunteer(s) putting together a quick "patch"! Hope to release a thoroughly tested update today or tomorrow. Stay tuned!

    Downloading the latest version should fix your problem :)

  • #105

    Temporary solution, change line 45 of  !MoncaiCompare.lua from:

    GameTooltip_ShowCompareItem(self, true);




    The second parameter of GameTooltip_ShowCompareItem is now anchorFrame

  • #109

     Thanks! WHat should i use to edit the file with?

  • #114

    The line "The second parameter of GameTooltip_ShowCompareItem is now anchorFrame" was meant primarily for Moncai as a heads up of the change.

  • #113

    Notepad++ has the line numbers on the left. small program and significantly better than notepad.

  • #112

     Awesome i figured it out! Thanks


  • #111

     I tried that but was a little confused about line 45  thing.
    Its not listed by lines.

    I am also confused by this...
    The second parameter of GameTooltip_ShowCompareItem is now anchorFrame
