Auto Research  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.1
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.

I understand that for newer players this might be nice, but I see little to no use of this addon once you're above 5 traits, as you will mostly be buying/asking your guild for the specific trait item anyways, its not like you have to search for the shortest research time, as most people just use craft store to keep track.

There are multiple use cases.

The first is for main crafters that have such long research durations that it's easy to forget about research. With this addon, you can get months' worth of research gear added to your bank and then not have to worry about it.

The second use case is for alternates. With the advent of Master Writs, it now pays to do research on all your writ toons.

With this addon, you can fill the alt's bags with research gear all at once and then forget about managing/requesting gear for research as long as you are doing writs every day.

I've got another addon coming soon to facilitate bulk research gear orders/auto crafting.

I wouldn't use this on my main as I'm highly selective at this point (all 7+), but it's ideal for an alt. If you add it so that it will attempt to research things that will take the least amount of time, I can't see any reason not to use it on an alt.

That's already the default functionality.

Ah, sorry. I'm at work and couldn't try it out. Looks like a good concept, though.

This sound really useful!

I may have two 9-trait crafters, but I do research on my alt characters because of master writs and just because I'm a bit of a completionist.

Going to try this out and fill what little space my bank has left with research stuff!

Would it be possible to create a setting so that you can tell it which characters you want to auto research on? Forgot to disable it and it started researching on a character that doesn't have max level crafting with all the research passives haha. Love the mod so far!

You don't need a setting for this. Just disable the addon for that specific character.

Set Gear

All I have left is Set Gear in my bank. So it no longer automatically start research.
Could you add so that if FCOItemSaver has an item marked for 'research' that it will start the research.
Thanks in advance.

Huh, that's a really good idea. I'll see what I can do. The FCOIS api is changing right now, so I might need to wait for the next release.

You say in your description, that your bag is given priority over you bank. But if in your bag you have items to research which would take several days, but your bank has many items that will take 5 hours. It picks the item from the bank.
Could you add an option so the items in your bag will be picked first by shortest time, without looking in your bank.
Thanks in advance, also do love your addons.

Research priorities

Hi,

Would you mind adding a default priority order for research? Configurable, if possible.

If not, something like: What should you research first?

This would be most helpful.

Cheers!
