This addon allows you to easily look up any item by name or ID. As an added bonus, it also can attempt to show you all qualities of an item and show you the text makeup of an item's link.
/finditem will take the piece(s) of the name you enter and return search results of just those items. This can contain spaces, multiple words, punctuation (such as "mother's sorrow").
If you just feel like browsing through a section of items (the limit is 100 at a time), then you can use "/finditem <start id>" such as "/finditem 64223" to begin browsing data at Psijic Ambrosia Recipe and on.
Note: The item table is rebuilt once per session for a myriad of reasons.
Find Item Flags (Advanced Usage)
The below is for more advanced searches and is not required for simple usage.
In order to narrow your search more, there are optional flags you can include. All of the flags can be found in /ifhelp
Using "trait:<trait_name>" will narrow the search to that trait.
For example: Night Mother gear in divines could be found with "/finditem night mother trait:divines" or you can shorthand it "trait:div"
Flag: Weapon Type
Adding "type:<weapon_type>" will allow narrowing search results down to a dagger and so forth. Due to trying to differentiate between staff types and 1h versus 2h, this flag is specific:
Axe, Bow, Dagger, Mace, Shield, Sword are exactly as you'd expect.
The following are the code name you'll need to use (capitalization doesn't matter) for the other types: Fire, Frost, Lightning, Healing, BattleAxe (for a 2h axe), Maul (for a 2h mace), Greatsword (for a 2h sword).
Flag: Equipment Type
Like weapon type, this also uses the "type:<slot_name>" flag and you can only use one type flag at a time. Name the body part: Head, Hand, Feet, Legs, Necklace, Ring, Shoulders, Waist. If you want to also sort by weight (e.g. "light"), see the flag below.
If you want to search for light, medium or heavy, you'll need the "weight:<weight_name>" flag. This can (and should) be used in conjunction with the equipment type flag.
Flag: Equipment Type Weighted
If you want to skip the hassle of combining the usage of type and weight, then you can use the weighted type keywords. For example, if you want to find a Julianos sash, you can do "/finditem julianos type:waist weight:light" or you can use "/finditem julianos type:sash"
If you're not great with names, you can call the wrong type (e.g. calling it a "belt" instead of a "sash") and include the weight you want. Such as "/finditem julianos type:belt weight:light" will still return the sash.
The below are the keywords for each weight of gear:
Light: Hat, Robe, Shirt, Epaulets, Sash, Breeches, Shoes, Gloves.
Medium: Helmet, Jack, ArmCop, Belt, Guards, Boots, Bracers.
Heavy: Helm, Curiass, Pauldrons, Girdle, Greaves, Sabatons, Gauntlets.
Note: I do not believe robe and shirt have a means of distinguishing them besides their name. I'm assuming this may cause issues for non-English clients. If it does, use "type:chest weight:light" instead and you'll have to deal with shirts and robes being shown, but you can help by including "robe" or "shirt/jerkin" in your language as a search term.
/showitem does the opposite: it takes an item's ID and returns the item.
/breakitem will take an item link and dismantle it in your chat input so that you can modify it as you wish or simply read it. Submitting it will reconstruct it back into an item link (with whatever modifications you made being applied).
/gradeitem will attempt to take any item with a changeable quality and output all qualities of the item. If it doesn't work on an item, please post the item's data (/breakitem [item_link], then copy what it returns).
The addon defaults to attempting to show results as CP160, legendary quality.
/ifsetquality will take an item link's quality AND level. It is a character specific setting.
If you have an item of the level you wish to specify but not the quality, simply use /gradeitem [item] to get all of the qualities and then use the relevant resulting quality as the item link for this command.
You could always ask me if need be, but the more on demand option is /ifhelp. The command will return usage instructions for the aforementioned commands.
