Geary is a lightweight addon to examine equipped gear of yourself and other players. Key features:

  • It shows a summary of all items with their gems and enchants
  • Missing gems, enchants, belt buckles, and unfilled upgrades are noted
  • Shows equipped item level and number of item levels necessary to reach next item level milestone (e.g. 123 for BRF LFR)
  • Can store inspect results for later review and external parsing
  • Stored inspection results can be added to player tooltips
  • Can show a summary of all stored inspection results for members of your party/raid including an overall average item level
  • Missing parts of the MoP legendary quest line (Eye of the Black Prince, Crown of Heaven legendary meta gem, and Cloak of Virtue) are noted
  • Because the WoW server controls what inspection data the client receives, retry when necessary

Geary Icon

The Geary icon is a handy button for doing Geary operations:

  • Left-click dragging moves the icon
  • Left-clicking inspects your current target
  • Middle-clicking toggles the Geary Interface
  • Right-clicking inspects yourself
  • Mouse button 4 toggles the Geary options
  • Mouse button 5 inspects all members of your group or aborts the current group inspection

Geary Interface

The Geary interface has several tabs for reviewing inspection results:

  • The entire Geary interface can be moved by Left-click dragging it
  • Player tab – Shows detailed results of the most recent inspection
  • Group tab – Shows the database stored inspection results of all party/raid members
    • If a player's inspection data is not in the Geary database, the player's details cannot be shown
    • The average iLevel of members with inspection results is shown at the bottom
    • Right-clicking on a row will attempt to reinspect that player
    • Left-clicking on the header will toggle the sort order between by name and by iLevel
  • Database tab – Shows all database stored inspection results
    • Right-clicking on a row will attempt to reinspect that player
    • Left-clicking on the header will toggle the sort order between by name and by iLevel
  • Log tab – A detailed account of what Geary does during an inspection

Slash Commands

Geary has slash commands for all important operations as well as some debugging operations:

Key Bindings

Geary supports key bindings for all useful commands. Go the Game Menu -> Key Bindings to manage them.

Geary Macro

You can also use a macro to invoke Geary inspections. For example, the following macro makes left-click inspect your current target and right-click inspect yourself:

/run if SecureCmdOptionParse("[btn:2]") then Geary_Inspect:InspectSelf() else Geary_Inspect:InspectTarget() end


You can leave comments on the AddOn page and project page or open a ticket for bugs/requests.

To Do

In no particular order, here are things Geary does NOT do yet, but I am considering:

  • Database:
    • Maybe: Sort by clicking on any column header
    • Maybe: Filter results by Faction, Class, Level, etc
    • Maybe: Ability to remove individual database entries
    • Doubtful: Store results for multiple specs
  • Group:
    • Maybe: Sort by clicking on any column header
    • Maybe: Show ^ and v icons for players above and below group's average iLevel
  • Player:
    • Maybe: Add hyperlinks explaining what's missing in summary text
    • Doubtful: Add options to control the font of the summary text
    • Doubtful: Empty sockets shown with their graphic
    • Doubtful: In item tooltips, show set pieces worn and empty extra sockets of the inspected character
    • Doubtful: Make item tooltips show for the inspection target's class instead of your class
  • Options:
    • Maybe: Options to configure mouse clicks for icon and Group/Database tab actions
    • Doubtful: Make options take effect immediately and have cancel revert to previous values
  • Detection:
    • Maybe: Track WoD legendary questline progress
    • Maybe: When item level is scaled up or down, show true max as well as current scaled values
    • Maybe: Detect non-rare WoD gems and non-WoD enchants
    • Maybe: Show items with PvP stats
    • Maybe: Show items with inappropriate stats (e.g. Prot Paladin wearing Intellect gear)
    • Maybe: Detect unspent talent points
    • Doubtful: Detection of profession perks (e.g. enchants on rings, sockets in bracers/hands, etc)
  • UI:
    • Maybe: Ability to lock the position of the icon and interface
    • Maybe: LibDataBroker compatibility (display results and clicks for operations)
    • Maybe: Store window locations in options so addon load failures don't force you to reposition them
    • Maybe: Add non-English client support via localizations
    • Doubtful: An optional minimap button that works like the icon and can integrate with Norganna SlideBar
    • Doubtful: Resizing of Geary interface
    • Doubtful: Detecting empty extra sockets from a belt buckle/EotBP instead of extra gems
  • Sync/Report:
    • Doubtful: Sync database entries with group, guild members, or specific players
    • Doubtful: Sync current group entries with group, guild members, or specific players
    • Doubtful: Report current group details and/or summary to officer, guild, raid, or specific players
