LootCount is made to show you how many items is available in a number of ways in your bags, your bank, at your alts, within your group, or within your raid and combinations thereof. Simply drag an item from your bag and drop it on the LootCount interface and go grind stuff. The interface itself is never any bigger than the number of items you have dropped on it. When you drag an item over the LootCount interface, it will generate a number of locations where you can drop the new item. If you only have one item in it, that's how big the iterface is.
The LootCount interface
The center square is you control for LootCount. Drag any corner of it to move the frame anywhere you want it. Right-clicking the edges brings up the menu where you can customize it further.
The slots are generated on a need-basis. Just drag an item from your bags over the LootCount interface and it will display empty buttons where you can drop the item. This way it is possible to align as you position items. It can be horizontal, vertical, an angle, a cross, a huge blob, some rows, some columns, or any combination thereof. Just position and build. When an item is removed from LootCount (just click it), LootCount will compact its interface to make it as small as possible. The options "Horizontal" and "Vertical" from the menu will to some degree affect how the compacting is performed, since LootCount will try to compact as of your H/V request.
Item icons can be resized. Select any of the presets from the menu, or type "/lc ?" to see a brief help on setting custom sizes.
When a tooltip is displayed (mouse-over anything anywhere or click a link in chat), LootCount will show you the number you have according to your set-up. So if you in the menu have selected to include your bank in the count, the tooltip will show you the count of those items. Or if you have alts selected, those will be counted too. This is very handy when you f.ex. mouse-over a reagent in a profession window.
You can also include all your alts in the item-count. By selecting the "Include alts" or "Include bank" option, LootCount will display a count of items accumulated from all your alts (Servers and Horde/Alliance are separated). The number in the watch-icon will then disply a single number, and upon mouse-over you will be presented with a list of the items' location - like:
- Bags: 17
- Bank: 20
- Altname1: 4
- Altname2: 2
LootCount also supports party and raid loot (big thanks to belleboom for the idea). This is all automatic, and only requires someone else in the party/raid to have LootCount installed and the same item in any slot in LootCount. In that case, LootCount will show the count for several characters added together. Perfect for grinding rep-items together with a friend, or keeping track of the number of void crystals when DE'ing in a raid. This can be switches off from the menu.
Special items (badges and so on)
As it does not really make sense to count badges and similar items throughout a group or alts, LootCount can switch that off for single watches. Place an item in the LootCount interface and double-click it. A red frame will appear around the doubleclicked icon denoting that this icon is only counted locally, independent of your settings. So if you have selected to f.ex. include alts, those will not be counted for items with this red frame. Only bags and bank will be included in those items.
LootCount supports setting of goals (big thanks to Faladrin for the initial code). Just right-click any item and type in the amount you want to set as a goal. LootCount will then show you how many you have and how many more you need. As an example: The image with 3 items in it shows what it looks like when you are grinding alone. Item 1 from the left shows normal without a goal set. Item 2 shows how it looks when your goal is met. Item 3 shows when the goal is not met yet (i.e 3 more items needed)
The setting of goals also works when you are doing group-loot. As an example: The image with 4 items in it shows what it looks like in a group. In this example there is a two-man group each with 2 Gold Ore. Item 1 from the left shows normal with no goal set. Item 2 shows with a goal of 1, so both the group and you have met the goal. Item 3 shows with goal set to 3, and the group have met the goal, but you alone haven't yet. Item 4 shows with goal set to 5, so you have 2 items and the group needs 1 more to reach the goal.
Special counters can be set from the menu by right-clicking on an edge of the center square. When you select one of the special counters, several empty icons will appear that you then can click to set the counter you've selected.
Kill-countdown with XP and/or reputation
Ever wondered how many kills you need to level up, or how many kills you need to get to the next reputation level? If you have, LootCount will tell you. Just select the option (REP and/or XP) you need from the LootCount menu and click one of the empty slots that just appeared. If you chose XP, that is all there is to it. If you chose REP you will also need to select the faction you want to watch. You do this by opening the WoW reputation window (shortcut "U"), click the faction you want to watch, check the "View as experience bar" option.
The counter icon will contain two numbers. The bottom-right number will show an estimate based on the last mobs you have been killing, and the upper left will show you how many of the last mob you killed you will need to get to the next level. These numbers will get more and more equal as you approach your next level. If you choose to switch zone or mob-type, LootCount will adapt and tweak the estimate within a number of kills.
As of version 0.98, LootCount will measure your DPS as you fight. A single number will be displayed, showing you your damage per second. There's nothing more to it. If you have a pet or minon, those will be counted too. If you have a pet/minion there will be two numbers in the DPS-meter. The bottom right number will display the total DPS generated by you and your pet/minion, and the top left will display the DPS done by your pet/minion.
- Type "/lc" or "/lootcount" to open or close the frame (or make a key-binding or macro for easier access)
