TraitBuddy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 8.0
by: Weolo [More]
TraitBuddy is an addon which tries to help you easily manage and keep track of what crafting research traits all your characters know. Great for those alt'o'holics out there just like myself.

I have expanded many game tooltips so that the information you want to see is right there on the item where you need it. There is also a custom screen if you prefer to see all the research in one place.

In case you are unsure what an alt is, it is a term to describe another/alternative character.

This addon is for Blacksmithing, Clothing, Woodworker and Jewellery traits as the other professions don't have traits you can research.

The latest version of addon library LibAddonMenu is required and will need to be installed separately.

Features
  • Expanded in-game tooltips:
    Bag, loot, mail, buyback, trade, guild store search, guild store listings, links placed in chat, quest rewards, crafting, equipped items and motifs
  • See the traits your character and your alts know
  • See the traits your character and your alts are researching
  • Automatically knows when your research has finished. You don't need to log on to your alts for it to update.
  • See the motifs your character and your alts know
  • Research overview screen
  • Compact movable window
  • Allows you to view any of your alts by simply picking them from a dropdown or using an icon bar
  • The screen you see will be just as if you had logged on to that alt
  • You choose which alts are included/compared
  • Customisable icon and text colours
  • Translated into English, French, German, Japanese and Russian
  • Supports gamepad mode
  • Ability to filter motifs, unknown, almost completed etc
  • List of all crafted sets with details of their bonuses and locations
  • Support for other addons such as Inventory Grid View and Inventory Insight
  • Icons in inventory similar to what ResearchAssistant used to do
  • Plus a lot more...
Check out the attached screenshots for a small sample of what the addon offers.

What do the icons mean?
Green Tick
The selected character has researched that trait.

Orange Tick
At least one or more of your characters has completed researching that trait.
But not the currently selected character.

Blue Hourglass
The selected character is researching that trait.

Orange Hourglass
No characters have completed researching that trait but one or more of your characters have started to learn it.

The colours can be customised from the options.

How to set it up
  • Log in to each character one by one so TraitBuddy can automatically work its magic
  • Check out the tooltips on items with traits and motifs
There are 3 ways to open the TraitBuddy window
  1. Bind a key
  2. Use the buttons added to the corners of the crafting stations, skill screen and guild store
  3. Use the chat commands /traitbuddy and /traitbuddyoptions
Use any combination you prefer.
Binding a key is done from the normal ESO options screen
  • Bring up the ESO Options > Controls > Keybindings and scroll down until you see "TraitBuddy Addon"
  • Choose a key you would like to use to show and hide the window
  • Personally I bind the ] key

Info for other Addon makers
Detect when mousing over a trait in TraitBuddy
In your onLoad function
Lua Code:
  1. CALLBACK_MANAGER:RegisterCallback("TB-OnTraitMouseUp", OnTraitMouseUp)
Then add a new function to do your custom stuff
Lua Code:
  1. local function OnTraitMouseUp(craftingSkillType, researchLineIndex, traitIndex)
  2.     d(zo_strformat("DEBUG: OnTraitMouseUp <<1>> <<2>> <<3>>", tostring(craftingSkillType), tostring(researchLineIndex), tostring(traitIndex)))
  3. end

If you have ideas to improve this addon or have found a bug please either post on the comments section of this addon page or send me a private message.

I hope you like it and find it useful.

Hello again. I reinstalled the addon. It shows all the motifs now but dropdowns still not working.
Great to hear the addon is loading correctly.

All sections of TraitBuddy work with the characters you choose in the Character Management part of the TraitBuddy options. (see the screenshot below)
To get the dropdowns to work the way you want them to, you first need to select the characters which you want to track motifs for. (section outlined in screenshot)

If you leave all characters tracking motifs then the only way to see who knows which motif is the tooltips and clicking the character selection buttons under the motifs screen.
For example: You choose "Unknown Motif" in the drop down, then click the buttons to view other characters and you will see the icons change, and change colour.

I personally don't want to collect motifs on all my characters so I only track one character for motifs.

While you are in looking at the character management section you should also choose which characters you want to track Blacksmithing, Clothing, Woodworking and Jewellery on too.

@twotimesterror

Thanks for the reply.

The language won't be causing the issue.
I't won't be a LUA memory related error, that sort of thing was changed by ZOS back with Morrowind.



With only some motifs not showing and drop downs not working it is starting to point to your installation of the addon becoming corrupted in some odd way. The addon does work as you can see from the screenshot above.

I am the addon creator and have been maintining and improving the addon continually for 5 years.

Are there any errors popping up on the screen?
Can you compare what you see on your motif screen to that of my screenshot above. Are the buttons etc the same? Any differences.

I think at this point is probably better to do a complete addon clear down and reinstall.

Close the game.
If you use Minion to install your addons
  • Under Installed > Right click TraitBuddy > Uninstall
  • Tick to delete SavedVariables
  • Under Find More > Search for TraitBuddy
  • Install TraitBuddy from me, not the one listed as TraitBuddy 3.1 from Mitsarugi
If you install addons manually
  • Delete the TraitBuddy directory
  • Delete the TraitBuddy SavedVariables file
  • Download a fresh version of the addon from me here
  • Don't download TraitBuddy 3.1 from Mitsarugi

Log into one ESO character and check if you now see all the motifs.
See if the drop downs work again.

If all is well, log back into each character again to repopulate the TraitBuddy data

That's a new one, not heard of that before.
No, there is no reason I can think of why you cant see motifs above 81.
What language do you play your game in? maybe its somehow connected to that.
Can you try turning off all addons except TraitBuddy and see if the problem goes away?
Hello. Sorry for late response. Language that im using is English. I tried turning off all addons but it didnt work. Also buttons like 'almost complete' and 'unknown motif' not working. I have been using this addon since 2018 and i have never seen these issues get fixed. I always though that its because addon is very old or person who make this addon is not developing anymore. Thank you for the addon though. It is very helpful.

I am really glad you like it.
A good addon has to be flexible and has to make sure it offers the right features.

Without changing the default settings the TraitBuddy details will appear in the tooltips.
You can change the options to choose which sections you see in the tooltips.

You can bring up the overview screen for TraitBuddy with the chat command /traitbuddy
You can also bind this to a button such as "[" under ESO's control options.
You can get to TraitBuddys settings via the Menu > Settings > Addons, or by the chat command /traitbuddyoptions or by opening the TraitBuddy screen and clicking the cog in the top right.

Try this to get started, it all depends on how you want it to look and work. But you can keep changing the settings until you find a combination which best fits you.

Turn on the tooltip sections for who knows the trait, who does not know the trait, and who is researching the trait. With all that information, one of the sections should tell you what you want to know.

If you are not interested in learning traits on all your characters you can also turn some of them off in the TraitBuddy settings. It's at the very bottom under the character management section.
For example if you didn't care about learning woodworking on your 2nd character you can turn woodworking off for that 2nd character.
Genius. I was hoping that the grid could tell me which traits have been learned by all my characters but it's even better. It tells me in the Deconstruct list of items so I can immediately see which items are safe to deconstruct and which I need to keep to be researched by another character. I'm really happy with this, which is great because I've had a nightmare with other add-ons I've tried to install today.

Without changing the default settings the TraitBuddy details will appear in the tooltips.
You can change the options to choose which sections you see in the tooltips.

You can bring up the overview screen for TraitBuddy with the chat command /traitbuddy
