Gear Shopping List
Return to board index
I just read the FAQ and realize that many others have requested the feature I mention below. Reading FTL. Anyhow, perhaps there are some details from my suggestion that might be taken into consideration during development.
I'm a big fan of Wowhead and keep it running as one of the tabs in my browser displayed on my second monitor so I can access it whenever I'm playing the game. Anyhow, I would like to request a feature to be added to Wowhead:
One of the things I do each time a new raid comes out is make a "shopping list" of all the items I hope to get some day for my main character. I go through each slot and try to learn which items would benefit my abilities most, then work towards getting those items. Typically I have more than one item on the list for a given slot (there might be two cloaks for instance that are equally very nice and I would be happy with either one) but not always. Anyhow, while I might discover these items on Wowhead, I end up storing this information in an Excel spreadsheet and then as I get an item I move it around from the "Want" area to the "Acquired" area and so on. I like the comparison tool here on Wowhead and I sometimes try to use that as a place to store my shopping list, but when comparing multiple items from multiple slots it just doesn't work well. What I'd like is a separate comparison list for each slot, to keep track of items of interest and at a glance, see the comparison between them. I would also like my currently equipped item to appear in this list and be indicated as such so I can see what benefits would come with upgrading this slot in particular. This could be accessed through the Profiles area of Wowhead, and altered by right-clicking on a slot when viewing your character therein? One more thing is that I'd like others to be able to see these lists, either one slot at a time, or in one long list grouped by item slot. My guild rewards anyone who makes a loot list for new raids with bonus EP (we use EPGP) and I find myself having to construct my list in Excel, then post it to my guild forums, then embed links to wowhead and it's a lot of work which could be avoided if my shopping lists could be referenced by a single URL posted on my guild forums.
Or maybe such a feature already exists here (you guys do amazing stuff so one never knows) but I just don't know about it.
Is there any chance you could create a slot-by-slot shopping list / comparison tool so I can plan my upgrades? One other thing I use Excel for is the formula capability. Since my main is a Mage, I have to be concerned with maintaining the Hit cap so I like to see how much +Hit each item has so I make sure to maintain the cap and reach it once I have all the items I want.
Anyhow, thanks for reading and keep up the good work. You are, without doubt, my favorite WoW web site and I come here multiple times every day to learn about the game and how to play better.
Thanks for your input and comments. I've been making similar "shopping lists" in the past for my Hunter and definitely understand the need. Stay tuned :)
