Cleaner Item Descriptions

Cleaner Item Descriptions

This is a fork of Better Item Descriptions that simply makes the tooltip larger and uses long phrases instead of abbreviations.
It also works with zOmnibus's Inscription Compare feature.
- sorts all stats by category
- item's passive power always the same blue color
- item's usable power - always yellow
- all rarity categories are displayed
- encumbrance value moved to the right under item name
- "on hit" powers always green
- "Stats" have an orange highlight and placed before others

If you hold ALT before mousing over an item, you can see its vanilla description.

If you ask what part of a description means, everyone gets to laugh at you.

However, feel free to suggest better phrasing.

Focus Lens Bug

If you craft a Tier 4+ Focus Lens for Blind-Fight, equip it, and unequip it, the Blind-Fight tag will remain in the helmet description permanently.

Focus Lens

This is fixed in the newest version. Thanks!


Thank you. It's easy to see and understand.

But I couldn't understand the meanings of Max(+) and Max(-) until I looked into the source code. That is Positive and Negative resources used by Anorithil etc.


Should it show in description when I can't wear heavy armor, like iron boots, due to not having the requisite heavy armor skill? Granted, 99% of the time, I should know I can't wear metal.

It does show a red missed req of "Massice Armor Training" on a character that has heavy armour training 1.

Cooldowns are not shown for inscriptions and runes (outside the title of the item when it does show CD except for starting). This is more when I have Zizzo's "Enhanced Object Compare" addon active as well; I can't compare cooldown while I can compare other values. Can it?


I've uploaded a new version that should fix both of these issues.
'Heavy Armor Training' and other special requirements should show up in red if you don't meet them, even if you do meet the stat requirements.
Cooldowns are now visible in Inscription tooltips normally.

Thanks for bringing them up!


With the update, I now see the red and the Cooldown lines.

Many thanks!
