Addon: RatingBuster

I have tried the addon BonusScanner RatingBuster for a few weeks now and I must say it makes things easier! The addon "Converts combat ratings in your tooltips into percentages, so that you have more meaningful information when comparing different items. ". This is good in itself, but the real use is that it instantly, in the modified tooltip, show how the item you inspect compares to the one you have currently equipped! As I have a tendency to bunker up different gear for to long, especially with my warrior tank, this is a real help when it is time to clear the bags and bank, and of cause when you spot a new drop. You see the effect at the bottom of the tooltip. Green values indicate it's higher than what is currently equipped, and red that it's lower.


  1. I can't live without my RatingBuster, an addon that does the same thing.

    It is also very customisable, you can choose which stats to compare, and also to ignore enchants and gems if you like, or set which gems/enchants you would use if possible, so you don't compare a fully gemmed/enchanted piece of gear with a "naked" one.

  2. Oops! I have mixed up my addons, I'm referring to RatingBuster too. Sorry for the mistake, and thank you!

  3. I thought the screenshot looked remarkably similar to what I get from RatingBuster, now I know why =)
