LootAppraiser is an addon which determines an item's value when looted based upon a pricing source you select. It keeps track of all gold asset value of the items in total including a quality item filter. Perfect for farming and determining gold asset value or potential gold-per-hour.
The reason I developed this addon was because while proving out some gold earnings via farming, I was using spreadsheets for post-run calculations on item values and pricing models. Now, I just run this addon, select the price source I want and let it calculate it for me!
Please understand, this addon does NOT determine liquid gold you are guaranteed to make but rather, potential ‘asset’ values of items looted where you will have to do the work and sell it on the Auction House, trade chat, etc.
There are currently two ways LootAppraiser gets pricing and that is from either/or TradeSkillMaster or TheUndermineJounal.
LootAppraiser will pick up which addons you have installed and the price sources available automatically.
TradeSkillMaster 3 or 4
LootAppraiser needs TradeSkillMaster 3 or 4 with a minimum of the following modules:
TradeSkillMaster_AuctionDB - TSM 3 only (for AuctionDB price sources)
NOTE: An important part of this addon is to ensure you are always getting the latest/updated pricing information for your realm or your numbers will be reporting incorrectly. We would highly recommend installing the TradeSkillMaster Desktop application (available for Windows and Mac) available at TradeSkillMaster.com
The Undermine Journal
