TraitBuddy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 7.0
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.

Hi Myrthian

TraitBuddy only shows details of crafted sets, not every set in the game.

Interesting feature request but. it would take a fair amount of work to tag every motif/chapter with its source location. Right now it pulls the description text from ESO itself so people can read where they are obtained.

If the description for "18: Akaviri" is showing as the wrong place its because the in-game text of ESO is saying this. But I will double-check this the next time I am on to make sure I have not made a mistake.

Feature request:
- Combobox/filter to sort the motifs by their source to obtain them, e.g. dungeons, daily quests, events, trial, purchased from vendors etc.

Is there reason why PvP sets like Firedrake aren't in the list of styles?

The description for 18: Akaviri style is wrong: the correct vendors are War Researchers, not Siege Merchants.

Version 7.0

I just uploaded version 7, it will be available to download shortly.

I added in all the information for the Sunspire motifs.
Motif chapters, achievement, crafting material, where you can find them, image etc etc..

The motif will be available in-game starting on September 18th.

I don't play ESO much at the moment so I won't be able to reproduce the functionality of TraitBuster into TraitBuddy. Best to talk to that addon developer and see if they are willing to patch it or pass it on to someone else.

@RavenMind
No one has reported an error like that yet.
If you have more details please do share

Anyone else getting a function expected instead of nil error?
I'll grab the text of the error next time I'm on.

Lightbulb Request

It would be great if you'd implement your own version of TraitBuster within TraitBuddy. To me, it only makes sense. TraitBuster hasn't been updated in a year, and it's very handy for me. I'm sure it would be for others, as well.

Hi zurbit

Yes, that message is from TraitBuddy.

The normal cause for too many anchors error is when you have a large number of addons installed and the game just gets really confused when it's trying to figure out what size a control should be. The anchor error can then show against anyone of your addons but it does not mean it was that addon which caused the issue in the first place.

One of the other causes can be if you installed the very old version of TraitBuddy which Mitsarugi copied three years ago. If this is the case then you will need to uninstall TraitBuddy and install it fresh and only from me.

The too many anchor errors have been around for 5 years which is really unfortunate.

I have made many attempts to ensure that TraitBuddy is not making these worse for people. I have set control sizes and dimensions so no controls calculate their own dimensions, and I have added XML attributes which means the controls should not calculate their anchors.

Version 6.9

An API bump so that TraitBuddy is fully compatible with the Scalebreaker DLC / Update 23.
I could not see any new styles or crafted sets in Scalebreaker. I did find information on a Sunspire style but I don't believe that's relevant to Scalebreaker.

In future updates, I will consider adding in "Add On Dependency Versioning" but I won't do that until the Scalebreaker update has bedded into the game.

I think it would be amazing if on the tool tip along with the icon for research there was also one that showed if you had one in your inventory. Thanks!
Hi jdlindberg89

Thanks for your comments.
There are other addons which can track items in your bag and bank.
But what I did do is add support for the Inventory Insight addon
If you have Inventory Insight installed, and you enable it in the TraitBuddy options, then you will see an extra section under tooltips like this:



Warning: It can be a bit sluggish when this is enabled.

Hi @Brettelectric

Those icons are not invisible its a feature of ESO.
The 2 icons on the top right of the clothing screen, for light and medium armour, are custom icons and ESO can have a "special feature" where sometimes those don't load up.

What you need to do is
  • Exit ESO
  • Delete the ShaderCache.cooked file from \Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live
  • Start the game back up and it will remake that file
  • You will then see the light and medium icons
Thanks for the response! Actually I just logged in then and the icons were there, without me having to do anything. Awesome addon. Thanks!

Where is leather (medium) armour?

Edit: The icons are invisible - might need fixing

Found it 5 seconds after I posted the original post

The icons on the right are invisible, but if I click where they should be, it will switch between light and medium armour. Note: The invisible icons are in the same place where the icons are to switch between wooden weapons and shields in the woodworking section, or between metal weapons and heavy armour in the blacksmithing section.


Hi, great addon, thanks!

But I can't find the grid for leather (medium) armour! Under the "Clothing" tab I can see what I have researched in light armour, but I can't see how to find the leather armour.

What am I missing?

Thanks!
