TraitBuddy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 7.9
by: Weolo [More]
TraitBuddy is an addon which tries to help you easily manage and keep track of what crafting research traits all your characters know. Great for those alt'o'holics out there just like myself.

I have expanded many game tooltips so that the information you want to see is right there on the item where you need it. There is also a custom screen if you prefer to see all the research in one place.

In case you are unsure what an alt is, it is a term to describe another/alternative character.

This addon is for Blacksmithing, Clothing, Woodworker and Jewellery traits as the other professions don't have traits you can research.

The latest version of addon library LibAddonMenu is required and will need to be installed separately.

Features
  • Expanded in-game tooltips:
    Bag, loot, mail, buyback, trade, guild store search, guild store listings, links placed in chat, quest rewards, crafting, equipped items and motifs
  • See the traits your character and your alts know
  • See the traits your character and your alts are researching
  • Automatically knows when your research has finished. You don't need to log on to your alts for it to update.
  • See the motifs your character and your alts know
  • Research overview screen
  • Compact movable window
  • Allows you to view any of your alts by simply picking them from a dropdown or using an icon bar
  • The screen you see will be just as if you had logged on to that alt
  • You choose which alts are included/compared
  • Customisable icon and text colours
  • Translated into English, French, German, Japanese and Russian
  • Supports gamepad mode
  • Ability to filter motifs, unknown, almost completed etc
  • List of all crafted sets with details of their bonuses and locations
  • Support for other addons such as Inventory Grid View and Inventory Insight
  • Icons in inventory similar to what ResearchAssistant used to do
  • Plus a lot more...
Check out the attached screenshots for a small sample of what the addon offers.

What do the icons mean?
Green Tick
The selected character has researched that trait.

Orange Tick
At least one or more of your characters has completed researching that trait.
But not the currently selected character.

Blue Hourglass
The selected character is researching that trait.

Orange Hourglass
No characters have completed researching that trait but one or more of your characters have started to learn it.

The colours can be customised from the options.

How to set it up
  • Log in to each character one by one so TraitBuddy can automatically work its magic
  • Check out the tooltips on items with traits and motifs
There are 3 ways to open the TraitBuddy window
  1. Bind a key
  2. Use the buttons added to the corners of the crafting stations, skill screen and guild store
  3. Use the chat commands /traitbuddy and /traitbuddyoptions
Use any combination you prefer.
Binding a key is done from the normal ESO options screen
  • Bring up the ESO Options > Controls > Keybindings and scroll down until you see "TraitBuddy Addon"
  • Choose a key you would like to use to show and hide the window
  • Personally I bind the ] key

Info for other Addon makers
Detect when mousing over a trait in TraitBuddy
In your onLoad function
Lua Code:
  1. CALLBACK_MANAGER:RegisterCallback("TB-OnTraitMouseUp", OnTraitMouseUp)
Then add a new function to do your custom stuff
Lua Code:
  1. local function OnTraitMouseUp(craftingSkillType, researchLineIndex, traitIndex)
  2.     d(zo_strformat("DEBUG: OnTraitMouseUp <<1>> <<2>> <<3>>", tostring(craftingSkillType), tostring(researchLineIndex), tostring(traitIndex)))
  3. end

If you have ideas to improve this addon or have found a bug please either post on the comments section of this addon page or send me a private message.

I hope you like it and find it useful.

I am really glad you like it.
A good addon has to be flexible and has to make sure it offers the right features.

Without changing the default settings the TraitBuddy details will appear in the tooltips.
You can change the options to choose which sections you see in the tooltips.

You can bring up the overview screen for TraitBuddy with the chat command /traitbuddy
You can also bind this to a button such as "[" under ESO's control options.
You can get to TraitBuddys settings via the Menu > Settings > Addons, or by the chat command /traitbuddyoptions or by opening the TraitBuddy screen and clicking the cog in the top right.

Try this to get started, it all depends on how you want it to look and work. But you can keep changing the settings until you find a combination which best fits you.

Turn on the tooltip sections for who knows the trait, who does not know the trait, and who is researching the trait. With all that information, one of the sections should tell you what you want to know.

If you are not interested in learning traits on all your characters you can also turn some of them off in the TraitBuddy settings. It's at the very bottom under the character management section.
For example if you didn't care about learning woodworking on your 2nd character you can turn woodworking off for that 2nd character.
Genius. I was hoping that the grid could tell me which traits have been learned by all my characters but it's even better. It tells me in the Deconstruct list of items so I can immediately see which items are safe to deconstruct and which I need to keep to be researched by another character. I'm really happy with this, which is great because I've had a nightmare with other add-ons I've tried to install today.

God dammit...

OK??

Yeah, just saw that it has version 3.1, funny thing is that I downloaded it via Minion, but I think int might have been the Addon I installed.

Anyway, thanks for your lightning fast help.

Hi @sir_squallus

I know exactly what that is, you have accidentally installed a 4 year old copy of TraitBuddy copied by Mitsarugi.

To fix it, you will have to completely uninstall TraitBuddy, delete the saved variables.
Then download TraitBuddy again from me, here, the latest version is 7.8

Thanks for the feedback @Shantoo
I will see what I can do

Arrow Trait Buddy Color Configuration

Since I am red-green colorblind, I do not recognize the color "green". Usually, it appears as either red, orange, or yellow. Sometimes it appears brown, gray, or even blue. (Also, it can be difficult to distinguish blue from purple and vice-versa.)

In the output table, according to your explanation, the color of the learned trait checkmark is "green". However, a checkmark for "Can be researched" appears the same color to me as a learned trait. I cannot distinguish which traits have been learned from those which "Can be researched".

So, to make Trait Buddy work for me the "Can be researched" color configuration for Tooltips must be added to the Appearance section for the output table. Or "Can be researched" must have a unique symbol instead of a checkmark. (Of course, it could have both a configurable color and a unique symbol as the "Being researched" hourglasses have.)

For what it may be worth: when I configure the output to show only one character which is learning traits, it seems to me that a "red cross" (X) should be shown when the character does not know an item's trait -- although, I suppose that could be over-ridden when the item "Can be researched".

Thank-you for your attention, time, and effort to make Trait Buddy work for everyone.

Any chance for supporting multiple accounts?

Understand if too much work since kinda niche scenario with few users, but as wishlist would love multiple accounts tracking.

e.g. I can't view traits on 2nd account from main account which I craft all research items with.

No big deal if no plan to ever support, but again - wish list thing

Re: Trait Buddy 7.6 Incorrect Known Traits & Motifs

Thanks @Shadowshire

That's actually how it's supposed to work.
Let me explain how it works out of the box, then how you can customise it to work best for you.

The ticks will change as you change the character selection at the bottom of the screen.

Tick colours

Green Tick - The selected character has researched that trait.
Yellow/Orange Tick - At least one or more of your characters has completed researching that trait. But not the currently selected character.
Blue Hourglass - The selected character is researching that trait.
Yellow/Orange Hourglass - No characters have completed researching that trait but one or more of your characters have started to learn it.

Now how to customise it for you.

Only track the characters you want to
The first thing to do is scroll to the very bottom of the options, to the Character Management section.
You will see all your characters listed who have the addon enabled and logged into at least once.
Here is an old example screenshot (ignore the red box)

To ignore a character in TraitBuddy (don't care what they know) "untick" all boxes for that character. The characters name will then grey out.

If you don't want to track blacksmithing, clothing, woodworking, jewellery or motifs on a character then "untick" the relevant boxes for each character.

Don't click the X at the end as that clears all TraitBuddy data collected for that character.

Change the colours
If you don't like the default colours you can change them in the options in the Appearance section.
As an example, you could change the "Others know tick colour" from the yellow to a very pale/dull colour so that it's less obvious.
The choice is completely up to you.

See how that works for you.
I am happy to answer more questions if you have them.
