This is still a work in progress addon.

This effects the following type of items: Quest items, items that start quests, some cooking recipes, and learnable mounts. Many of these items can be found / filtered here.

It's just meant to add a little bit of immersion into the game without a vast negative impact.

If you've found a quest item missing flavour text, you can send it here.

If there's a grammar or lore mistake, you can send it here.


A link to my discord for addon projects and other things can be found here.


Slash Commands

There's 3 main slash commands:


/lit or /litt or /loreitemtooltips

 This will bring up the colour picker to change the colour of the custom flavour text on items. You can also do /loreitemtooltips or /loreitemtooltip just in case some other addon has the same chat command of /lit (Legion Invasion Timer)


/lit reset

 This will reset the colour back to the default yellow, but it'll also tell you the previous colour you had chosen in case you didn't want to actually reset so you can choose the colour values again. 

/lit credits

 This will bring up a list of people who've helped contribute to this project:
