About Moncai Compare

EquipCompare. Many have used it, many loved it. Then, Blizzard added it's own implementation. However, this requires you to hold the shift key every time. Not anymore! MoncaiCompare is a lightweight addon with zero overhead to bring you the comfort of the original EquipCompare using as much as Blizzard's own code as possible.

Automatically showing comparison tool tips in the bank, at the auction, in your bags, in the dungeon journal, when looking at quest rewards and when clicking item links. Replacement for EquipCompare.

Moncai Compare works also great when used together with Pawn and/or RatingBuster (when it's updated)!

New in 7.0.0

Moncai Compare is checked to be Legion compatible! It needs some work for the new Loot tab of the Adventure guide, but that's under development. Please get as many people as you know to download and use this addon! The more people use and download this, the more time I can justify putting into my addons. Thank you!

New in 6.0.2

  • Full Warlords of Draenor compatibility! Squashed (hopefully) the last remaining bug. Code is now fully checked against latest Blizzard libraries for a seamless experience. If you still have problems, don't hesitate to create a ticket so I can investigate and solve your issue.

New in 6.0.1

  • Warlords of Draenor support. If you encounter any problems, don't hesitate to create a ticket so I can investigate and solve your issue.

New in 5.3.0

  • New! Dungeon Journal Item tips now shown on the left side, or as far left as possible

New in

  • Tested to work in all languages and localizations, including ptBR and itIT.
  • Now also works in the dungeon journal
  • If, for some reason, you temporarily don't want to see the comparison, simply hold the comparison modifier key (usually shift)

Known Bugs

  • Currently no known bugs. May or may not work with certain bank / inventory / item based addons. If you come across an addon you would like for Moncai Compare to work with, please create a ticket.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been using Moncai Compare since it first appeared, and was desperately hoping for a Legion friendly version. You've made an old dwarf very happy ;-)

    Yes, Moncai Compare will support Legion!

    It will support the Legion?

    I guess I am too impatient, but will there be a 6.2 version soon...???

    I guess it is the Blizzard compare, but it doesn't seem to give me an option to include gems in compare. It just excludes them, I guess the same goes for enchants. Shame on you Blizzard.

    @spiralofhope: Go

    The solution you reference doesn't work for itemref tooltips. Therefore MoncaiCompare works better, with close to zero overhead.

    Can currently be achieved with:

    /console alwaysCompareItems 1
