Ho hum, I know it's taking a while, but sockets are coming to WowEquip. Basic support is in, but I've introduced a really horrible bug in the item loading code so I can't release anything at present. I'll try to get it all sorted out this week.
Great news! Thanks so much for your work on it and good luck fixing that bug!
I've been experimenting with itemlist.xml and itemstats, and before I embark on writing a complete parser for the item_html (the tooltip, basically), has anyone already written one I can borrow?
I know there's xml information available for each item from allakhazam, but its format seems rather 'heavy' -- e.g. crit rating links to a different spell for each amount of crit rating, which then would need to be parsed to see how much crit rating it gives... it seems a lot simpler to just parse the tooltip.
I have posted a new thread in the "class mechanics" forum, due to the fact that I think the people there will have an over all greater use for this than the small subset of us who write mods and the like. I hope i dont make gurg or kaubel angry by doing so, but it makes more sense in my mind to have it there.
This is kinda old, but I am about halfway through downloading all XMLs from armory for equippable items (it takes 1-2 days so that I don't get IP banned), I wonder if anyone could be interested in those.
Edit: done, items.zip (3170 K), contains data for 20758 equippable items (not including ammo/bags/quivers)
Contains 208 item0001.xml-item0208.xml files with 100 items each; each file has a root element <items> and for every item has an element <item> which has as children <itemTooltip> node from wowarmory/item-tooltip.xml and <item> node from wowarmory/item-info.xml.
Additionally, I have included an index.txt file which contains a list of all included items, their ID and the file they can be found in, along with position in that file.
Also, if you find an equippable item that can be found in armory but is not in my list, I would be very interested in it.
Edit2: so far I only found "Mark of the Spider" (id 35666).
