WeaponEASYcomPARE: (Weasypare)
Enhances default blizzard equip compare to make matching of Main- & Off-Hand versus Two-Hand (and vice versa) weapon stats a lot easier. *hurray*
Note: Main-Hand refers to any One-Hand weapon that can be equipped to you main weapon slot (eg. Mace), while Off-Hand does the same for your secondary weapon slot (eg. Libram). ;)

This addon try's to enhance the default blizzard equip compare by some some simplifications.

  • When comparing a Two-Hand weapon to your currently equipped Main- & Off-Hand it will add up difference to both Main- AND Off-Hand an display it on the Two-Hand tooltip.
  • No changes is done, when you compare a Two-Hand to an equipped Two-Hand, since blizzards equip compare handles this already fine.
  • When comparing a Main- or Off-Hand to your currently equipped Two-Hand, it will use your last equipped Off- or Main-Hand as a reference to calculate stats difference. Those reference weapons can also be set via chat-command.
  • No changes is done, when you compare a Main-Hand or Off-Hand to an equipped Main-Hand or Off-Hand, since blizzards equip compare handles this already fine.

    For further details, take a look at addon images. ;)


  • /wp [mh | oh] [itemID | itemName | itemLink] - Set default Main- or Off-Hand to itemID, itemName or itemLink
  • /wp auto - Toggles (Enable/Disable) auto update of default Main- and Off-Hand
  • /wp note - Toggles (Enable/Disable) adding extra note which Main- and Off-Hand is beeing used


  • Q: I want it simplistic, how to I turn off those notes in the tooltip and only display stats? A: This can be toggled by /wp note.
  • Q: Weasypare keeps reseting my reference Main- and Off-Hand?! A: This can be toggled by /wp auto
  • Q: Weasypare only shows compare info for weapons? A: Yes that's intended, turn on blizzard equip compare for the rest. ;)
  • Q: Can you support AddonXY? A: Probably, just keep me a note. ;)


  • Did not test if gem icon were displayed correctly, just didn't have any weapon with sockets. :-/
  • Feedback: Should I add a LibDataBroker Plugin to replace/enhance command-line?

    @Stephini: Go

    It causes my client to crash as well. I was able to reproduce the crash on three separate computers. It happens when switching between characters after the first initial login.

    Would love to see this upgraded for MoP. At present enabling it causes my client to crash.

    Fix should be up now, took me a bit longer than expected. *sadface* Sorry for all those dual-wielding classes! :)

    Ah, okey! :) Now I know whats causing the problem. When setting MH or OH (be it via command or auto-update) I do check for the type of weapon (one-hand, two-hand, off-hand, ect.) What I missed is, that there are weapons that can be put in both main- and off-hand slot (for dual-wielding classes). My main is a priest, which cannot dual-wield, thus I totally forget about this... ^^

    I'll fix and upload this asap (as soon as I log back onto windows again). Thanks for pointing out this bug. :)

    EDIT: For classes being able to dual wield (and items that can be dual-wielded) there will now be two comparisons (One against ref. Main- and ref. Off-Hand)

    ok did some more serious debugging

    autoupdate was on

    forcing OH unpdate, the weapon is stored in MH instead of OH.

    please check this
    did some copypaste to create a dump of commands/results :)

    Okey, lets take a look. :)

    So "comparing 2H to MHandOH.jpg" seems to have wrong stats, it seems that its missing your Main-Hand Axe... Did you have it equipped once or set it via /wp mh [item]? (You can query current "reference weapons" via /wp)

    You are right, both comparing MH to 2H.jpg and comparing OH to 2H.jpg seem to indicate, that WP is missing its reference weapons, but for what reason I don't know yet.

    Things we could try are:

    • Was auto update disabled (this is to prevent auto overwrite of manual set reference weapons)?
    • If not, could you try and set main- & off-hand via \wp mh [item] \wp oh [item] and see if stats are still wrong? [Note: If you use \wp mh ... or \wp oh ... you should get a message on success.]

    If that does not seem to resolve the problem I'll have to take a look at reference weapon update code, as the problems seems to lie there...

    doenst work.

    removed all other addons.. the empty [ ] maybe means addon fails to retrieve equipped weapons?

    please look here for screenshots:

    i do write addons, but wanted to post here before trying to debug it.
    anyway i am available for some custom testing.
