Search, filter and craft gems in the game!
For non-Jewelcrafters, GemHelper serves as a encyclopedia for gems much like what AtlasLoot Enhanced is for instance and reputation loot. With many search filters for the exact gem colours, stats and materials, users can quickly find the best gem to socket into their new equipment without having to harass a Jewelcrafter or check a website about what gems are available.
For Jewelcrafters, GemHelper goes a step further and allows users to craft gems directly from the GemHelper UI with extra options such as "Have Materials" that Enchanters currently have. Jewelcrafters are also able to replace the default Blizzard Jewelcrafting UI.
The gem tooltips will list the materials needed to craft it or the location where the gem can be found/purchased. Currently, the database contains 565 gems. All gems should be (more or less) safe to query the server for (the link) because if someone has the gem on the server (in inventory, bank or socketted in gear) and has logged on since the last server reboot, it will be safe to query.
To use GemHelper, type /gh or /gemhelper ingame. If you are a Jewelcrafter, you open the GemHelper window by pressing the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbar or spellbook.
If you open the GemHelper window via the slash command (/gh or /gemhelper), you will not be able to craft gems from it. You must open the GemHelper window via the Jewelcrafting button on your actionbars/spellbook. This is NOT a bug and is a limitation of the WoW game engine.
What I need
Localization information for various languages:
With the changes before Cataclysm was released many gems got renamed, new names introduced, some removed, etc. I'm unable to accurately update the existing non-English translations of GemHelper. I have enabled the Localization pages for everyone who can, to submit translations to be used for GemHelper.
Also, please review this ticket and post whatever information you can on non-English name structures. Thanks.
Beta Testers: Astrae, Karenwise, Grum
And many thanks to Xinhuan's guild members for helping with gems!
Translators: Thanks to everyone who provided translations for GemHelper.
