Auto Research  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.1
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.

All else being equal, gear in the current player inventory is given preference over gear in the bank. You can also choose to select gear from just the current player inventory or just the player bank.

Yeah, works like a charm now. thanks for your work.

I assume i can delete ..

and not cheapStyles[itemStyle])

..on line 135 to ignore the style too?

I have tons of items from random dungeons that i don't use for any other purpose than research on my writ army.


EDIT: so removing that part caused plenty of errors, then i removed whole..

if quality > ar.settings.maxQuality[craftSkill] or (ar.styledCategories[itemTraitTypeCategory] and not cheapStyles[itemStyle]) then
return
end

..and it works, obviously it also removes the quality filter and will research your golden items. But thats not my problem

Also a feature request: pls make it pick the shortest research time.

If they are equipment that is part of an item set, the only way to get them to research is to mark them for research with FCO Item Saver. Also, if the motif style is of any style other than the base racial styles, Ancient Elf, Barbaric or Primal, they are also excluded by default unless marked explicitly with FCO Item Saver.
Please no, just avoid FCO, I hate this mod with 8 librairies for nothing -.-

I'm here for the same reason...

Could you be more specific? Which item isn't being researched that you think should be? Please read the addon description for specifics about which items are and are not considered for research.

You can manually enable auto research for sets items if you edit "AutoResearch\classes\Validator.lua" in your addons folder.

You can use Notepad++ or any other text editor.

At the very bottom of the document, delete the following code and save.

Code:
if hasSet then
    return
end
You're good to go!

Set gear optional?

Just suggesting an option to allow the addon to use set gear, like a checkbox in the settings or somethin!

Thanks!

Usually, if the expected gear isn't used, it's because it was a set piece - which are excluded if not marked by fco item saver - or it exceeds the maximum item quality you have configured.
Thanks, didn't even take that into consideration whether it was part of a set. Wil check out FCO Item Saver.

BTW, I love this addon, it makes life so much easier since finding it.

Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to confirm the ordering/prioritisation being used?

For my DK I had configured my woodworking to the following order:

1 - Inferno Staff
2 - Restoration Staff
3 - Ice Staff
4 - Lightning Staff
5 - Bow
6 - Shield

But on my next visit to the woodworking station, it kicked off researching the Training trait for Bow instead of the Powered trait for Inferno Staff.

I checked the weapons traits to verify if was prioritising that over woodworking traits but its configured with Powered Trait as 1 and Training trait as 6 so can't figure out the prioritization choice.

I only installed and configured the addon in an earlier session and config in the Settings > Auto Research > Woodworking matches what I had changed it to. I do recall before changing it that the default seemed to have Bow as the 1st priority.


Thanks
