Item name same, but different prices : EverQuest 2 General Discussions

I searched before posting, but I didn't find anything so hopefully I'm not restarting something.

I've been looking at certain items, say canine saliva, that have the same name and same type (i.e. treasured), but have different price values. Is there any way to tell which are higher and which are lower? It's driving me a little insane I tell ya...

There used to be, but they borked it. (the data sent when inspecting an item contained, for a short while, such data as the items base value. It got nerfed). Generaly speaking, the price is based on the tier it drops in. But even within the same zone, you'll find 2 items that are different. SO, until a CERTAIN SOMEONE ADDS ITEM HANDLING TO THE XU DATATYPES (hint hint), this is the only solution I can offer you without using other tools:
1: any items that stack will be the same value. In case thats not obvious.
2: Drag a link to your chat. Highlight it with your mouse, hit cut (control X), alt tab out and paste the link to a text editor. Make a note of the link ID number. Now, visit a vendor, and get its value.
3: Repeat with an item of the same name that refuses to stack with the first one. You'll see it has a different ID.
4: At this point you'll be able to make a list for yourself of which IDs have what value.


I have an idea to make this all easier in-game, but I have to do some picking around in my eq2 dir; specificly, I can't remember where, but theres a file that contains the link that will open by default when you open the inventory.HTML window. Once I find this, I'll explain how to change it to a local file your going to craft that will provide a form so you can paste it in that window, so you can see the # without tabbing out- you can also store the values there, to look them up while in the field.

Thanks again. I tried it, but it didn't work out for me for some reason. I was really curious if I could tell from the broker.

I could explain how to get the data while at the broker, but if you were unable to get what I explained to work, then it would be beyond you anyhow.

Ouch. lol.

Whenever I dragged the said item to chat window it worked fine. I was able to highlight and cut, but pasting said item into a text program just brought whatever I had already from a previous cut and paste.

thats bizzare. OK- the other option is to turn your log on, and drag to chat, hit enter so you 'say' it, and then comment to yourself what it sold for. Then you can go through your log, and collect the data there.

Sweet. That worked in the log. I would like to know about the broker, but if it's convuloted it's not big deal...I just don't know why SOE couldn't put better tags on them...

re. working while your actualy at the broker, before you buy it- your going to have to run tools that allow you to read incoming packets directly. If your comfortable with that, I'll give a fulled explaination (its friday night, so Im a tad drunk atm....not up to writing technical stuff atm =] )

I'm fairly comfortable with that. I'm thinking along the lines of downloading win pcap and using something like Etheral. Of course it all depends on how much of my life I want sink into this... :roll:

placeholder. working on a detailed writeup, but they went and changed the format they send the data in, so I need to figure it out myself first =] they were sending in plaintext, now they're using bitflags, figuring out what means what by comparing old logs to new ones. stay tuned.
