Auto Research  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.3.1
by: silvereyes [More]
Automatically starts researching traits when at a craft station.

When paired with the Research Craft addon, you can to craft a bunch of research gear to store in your bags/bank, and then have your character automatically research the next item from the stockpile according to your configured priorities.

Dependencies

You must install the following libraries separately from this addon in order for it to work. I highly recommend using the Minion addon manager to simplify this process.

Use Cases
  • New players that want to store a bunch of research gear at once in the bank up front so they don't have to go find/buy/request new gear every few hours.
  • Storing a ton of research gear in your writ alts' bags so you don't have to manage their research manually.
  • Established crafters that haven't finished research, but tend to forget about it due to the long research times can store 10 or so research items in the bank so they don't have to worry about managing research for several months.

Configuration

The only gear used currently are the following:
  • No items locked with FCO Item Saver (v1.0+ required)
  • No items locked with in-game lock
  • Items marked for research with FCO Item Saver (Overrides all of the following exclusions. v1.0+ required)
  • Quality less than or equal to the maximum configured quality. Default is blue quality (arcane).
  • Style is one of the configured allowed styles. By default, these include the racial styles plus Ancient Elf, Barbaric and Primal. You can either choose these in settings, or use the Auto Research right click menu to enable the checkbox for the style to allow it.
  • Non-set equipment, or sets that have been specifically selected. LibSets is required for selecting sets. Once enabled in settings, you can either choose a set manually in settings, or use the Auto Research right click menu to enable the checkbox for the set to allow it.
  • Only equip slots (e.g. Helm, Cuirass, etc.) that have been assigned a priority under the desired trait line (e.g. Blacksmithing) will be researched, in the priority configured. Equip slots set to (none) will not be researched.

Equipment pieces are selected for research based on fastest research times. For example, if you have all clothing pieces 8 trait researched *except* for medium armor helmets that have 7 traits, then medium armor helmets will be given preference over any other clothing pieces.

Trait research order is customizable under Settings > Addons > Auto Research, with 1 being the highest priority, and 9 being the lowest.

All else being equal, gear in the current player inventory is given preference over gear in the bank, lower quality items are preferred over higher quality ones, and lower level items are preferred over higher level items. You can also choose to select gear from just the current player inventory or just the player bank.

Which item specifically do you think it should be researching? Does it meet the criteria outlined in the description page? Check that quality and item style are allowed. If it has a set, make sure the set is allowed (LibSets required). Make sure it's not locked somehow, or protected by FCOItemSaver.

There's no priority mechanism between characters right now. The best way to handle this situation currently would be to do a little bit of inventory management, by shifting around research items between the bank and backpacks until everything you want the alts to research is in only their backpacks. Then you can set the option to only use the backpack, not the bank, on each alt.

I know it's a chore if you just want to use dropped gear for research, so I'll definitely consider adding some sort of priority mechanism in the future. But this makes the addon more complicated because it requires scanning and remembering each character's research status in saved variables, and that requires logging in to each alt to get current status. It's definitely possible, but just not something I have time to code right now.

The only way this would happen would be if FCO Item Saver also had the item marked for research *and* FCOIS had a bug with its function for checking if an item is locked. I'll check into the latter, although I suspect that you accidentally marked it for research instead of locking it. It's easy enough to do.

Does this interfere with the lazy writ crafter addon which automatically starts to craft, and exits the crafting station UI when done?
It starts immediately as soon as you interact with a crafting station. It is compatible with Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter version 34.19 or newer. Lazy Writ Crafter starts it's crafting after the research is queued.

Thanks for your awesome addon and help

/Ami
AutoResearch, for historic reasons, defaults to per-character settings. Here is how the "Account wide" setting works:
  • Toggle the Account Wide setting on for the first character
  • Set up your settings how you like them
  • Log in to each of your other characters and choose the "Account Wide" setting
  • When that setting is enabled on each successive character, the settings from the first that were set *after* toggling the "Account Wide" option will become active.

Thanks for the report.

I could use some more details from you before I can accurately diagnose the problem. Please send me a PM with the following details:
  • The contents of your AutoResearch.lua saved vars file
  • Character name you are testing with
  • List of items you expect to be auto-researched on that character with those settings
  • The location (bag or bank) of each of the items

Thanks!

Check the addon settings to make sure the different filters available aren't excluding all of the items in your inventory and/or bank from being researched automatically. There are many different things (item quality, FCO item saver, item style, item set) that can cause an item to not be researched.

I've noticed this also. It appears that the account wide setting doesn't work.
