About TooltipWealth

TooltipWealth (originally TinyTipWealth) is an Ace3 module that lets you sneakily inspect how much gold your mouseover target has made so far using the Achievement API.


  • Display most gold ever owned (default)
  • Display total gold acquired - may be used to indicate the economic prowess of a character, but is usually wildly inflated for the wealth owned by auction house players as they tend to have very high income and expenditure.
  • Display average gold earned by day
  • Disable for opposite faction
  • Disable when in combat
  • Disable when not in major city
  • Show wealth as coins or plain text (e.g. 1g 10s)
  • Currently tested with: TinyTip, TipTac, TipTop, CowTip, normal game tooltip

It's not working?

Try mouseovering your target carefully. If you quickly move your cursor over a bunch of people, the addon can only query the first person you've mouseovered; due to the limitation of Blizzard's API and the server's generally slow response time, by the time we've got the wealth results back from the server your cursor is likely already on a different person, so ToolTipWealth will have to discard the data.

Test fix: only register for INSPECT_ACHIEVEMENT_READY events when mouseovering, and delegate the event back to the default Achievement frame when we're done. Should also fix incompatibilities with other addons.

    Seems to be working again. Must have been a blizz bug.

    Hey all, thanks for the bug reports! I had been on a hiatus from WoW, but I'll try and update my client and activate a 7-day free game time to take a loot at the reported errors. :P

    I think there is a bug on Blizzard's end. Using "Compare Acheivements" and switching to the Statistics tab also gives duplicated information.

    Nice addon! But after 5.0.4 it seems broken. When i hover over any other player, it will display exactly what my current toon has, not their wealth.

  • #49

    Same here.

    Needs an update for 5.04

    Could you make something which would show the number of times a player has killed a particular boss? I don't think the statistics UI shows it for all bosses, but whenever you kill one, it shows up in your guild news feed.

    so this addon shows how much the player currently has? or how much they made total?
  • #41

    Both. :P Let me repaste this copypasta from next page;

    WoW doesn't exactly let us see the actual amount of gold in another person's purse, but only gives us 2 stats:

    Basically 'Most Gold Ever Owned' means the highest record of gold the person ever had in their purse. Sometimes, if a player always saves up gold and doesn't spend much (like splurge 20k on a motorbike) this will be the exact amount of gold they have.

    Then 'Total Gold Acquired' is how much money the person has ever looted, earned and spent since level 1, so for most level 80 players this should be a pretty high number (even above 100k).

    wow this addon is awesome!

    Thanks. :)

    Just posting to say that v0.3.2 should fix most of the problems reported here, thanks for the feedback guys! :)
  • #36
    Your add-on is broken for me. It displays a number in a tool-tip but when I go to inspect the character's achievements manually the are grayed out. All the stats report "--" instead of a number. When I disable the add-on I can compare achievements properly. The number in the tool-tip is correct but if the price of that is disabling achievements totally that's just not acceptable.
  • #37
    I've just noticed this as well. Looking into it.
