About

LIP (Legendary Item Planner) is a plugin for LotRO that assists the player in planning legendary items, through a familiar user interface.

It is similar to the 'Legendary Item Point Spender' web tool at http://lotrotools.mmorsel.com/lispender which was both the inspiration for this plugin and the source of some of its data.

Ever wanted to know where your scrolls of empowerment are best used ? How to optimally spread your points ? Forgot which legacies are minor and major ? Wondering just exactly what benefits you would get from upgrading that second age weapon to a first age ? This plugin is for you!


Features
  • 10 'virtual' legendary items configurable for each class, stored across characters.
  • Overview of all legacies (and their type: minor, major) available to a given class and legendary item
  • Full freedom, LIP will adjust the values and cost of legacies for any level, age, tier or rank you set.
  • Import of legendary items from the chat to LIP and export from LIP to the chat
  • Localization in Russian and German (not up to date), partial French translation

Installation

Copy the "Equendil" folder from the zip file to your "My Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins" folder (if you never installed a plugin before, you might have to create that "Plugins" folder).

If you are updating an older version of LIP, erasing files is fine. If you are using another plugin of the author (Bootstrap & Baruk, currently), erasing files *should* be safe. In doubt, always install older (by last update) plugins first and make sure you have the latest versions.

Execute "/plugins unload" if you have plugins currently running

Execute "/plugins refresh"

Alternatively you can use lunarwtr's installer: for PC or for Mac/Linux


Usage

"/plugins load lip" will launch (and display if that option is not disabled) LIP. Another option is to use a plugin manager (such as the author's: Bootstrap or Turbine's one)

"/lip" or "/lip toggle" will make the plugin visible or invisible depending if it was visible
"/lip show" will always make LIP's window visible
"/lip hide" will always hide LIP's window


The graphical interface of LIP is rather straight forward (or so I believe). A few points worth mentioning:
  • Right clicking on legacy tier icons will bring up a selection menu, left clicking will cycle through tiers
  • The list of legacies for selection displays the total cost of each legacy as if of maximum rank and tier 6. This gives a rough idea of the relative costs of the legacies.
  • The list of selected legacies for configuration displays the total cost of each legacy up to the current rank and cost of the next rank in parenthesis.
  • Open the legacy selection list and deselect legacies to 'remove' them from an item
  • The legacy summary on the right side lists all modifiers and costs of a legacy at the current tier for all ranks. The current rank is highlighted.
  • Moving the mouse pointer over the level of a LI will display a chart of total experience and experience from the current level for key levels.
  • "Save" will save the current item only, "Save All" will save all modifications made to every item present in the interface.
  • The "Restore" button will restore *all* legendary items back to their last saved configuration, not just the currently displayed one.
  • If 'Show when started' is unchecked, the plugin will not display when loaded, you will have to execute "/lip" to bring up its window (as per request).
  • The "Sauron's Eye" icon opens the item importer. The last LIs spotted in the chat will be displayed there for importing
  • The little "chat bubble" icon in the header of a LI opens a small window to output a link to a chat channel.

Known Issues & limitations
  • Some values here and there have been extrapolated and may be sligthly off (very little is extrapolated as of version 1.7). Where doing so might have been misleading, the interface displays "?" instead of a value.
  • A few legacies have costs set to 0 for all ranks at tier 1.
  • "Ranged Skill Block Chance Modifier" and "Ranged Skill Evade Chance Modifier" (hunters) show values that may be off by one rank at tier 6 (likely a bug on Turbine's side)
  • "Focus Bow Threat Down" and "Induction Bow Threat Down" may show the wrong costs on lvl 70ish third age items (bug on Turbine's side not reflected in LIP, *should* be fixed in Update 9)
  • On high brightness settings, the background of the plugin window displays oddly when the window is made taller (just like Turbine's own LI panel).
  • Import & export of LIs from / to the chat have several limitations, in particular, bridles are not supported (as of 2.0), level/age/ranks may be set to a default value on import, and incoming healing ratings may display the wrong values or not display at all when LIP LIs are linked to the chat

Reporting issues, contributing.

Undoubtedly bugs have crept in and mistakes have been made while gathering, extrapolating and entering data for all possible combinations of legacies, level, age, crystal upgrades, tier and ranks. Should you spot incorrect values, please report them (preferably along with correct values ...) so the data can be fixed.

The author can be contacted:
  • On this thread
  • In private messages through this site
  • By contacting the author on the Snowbourn server. Send a mail to "Equanor" (main character), or send a message directly if logged on.
When reporting erroneous values, do not forget to include the level to use, age, number of crystals of legendary items as well as the rank and tier of legacies where relevant.

Third parties have been contributing translations of the plugin, but those might not be up to date. If you'd like to help, the LIP/Locale/*.lua list all strings that require translations (see ru.lua for an example). Contact the author for any question regarding the process (and to make sure nobody is already working on it).

Contributions

Russian localization by PulseDiver - Uuhty (The Ring Union kinship, Mirkwood, RU) - Уухты (содружество "Союз Кольца", Мирквуд) - email: info[at]theringunion.ru

German localization by Amethadan Celebhathol (Silberklinge) - Heerführern Arnors (www.arnor.tk) - Maiar server.

Partial French localization by "kiki".

I'd like to give my thanks to all the people who contributed some of their time and data to this plugin, people who reported mistakes, sent me data through PM, people I've contacted in game randomly, and were kind enough to give me a minute of their time, thanks everyone! You rock. I'm not going to name everyone who helped at one point or another, but special thanks to Thormosi, Janthalion and Loge on the Snowbourn server who gave much of their time testing, feeding me items and data, as well as Amtor who provided me much needed data on legacies for which I had very little, ChromiteSwiftPaw for the RoR expansion, Bunny and Tangaar for Helm's Deep.

I made blind changes, as in: I didn't test the plugin is working in game, so this will probably come back to bite me, please report if I broke something.

Hi Equendil

Thank you for making LIP, a very useable tool for "nerding" with LI's

Have a Guardian, and using LIP for that. After lvl95 upgrade and new upgrade of LIP i noticed this

Guardians Belt Legacy "Catch a breath cooldown" have wrong point settings.

These are the correct numbers

Code:
                                          Points/Upgrade Modifier
Rank      1          2          3          4          5          6          7          8          9
Tier6    0/-1       5/-2       7/-4      10/-6      14/-8      18/-9      24/-11     30/-13     36/-15
Unfortunately i didn't notice the numbers for the other tiers, but one could think the scale is similar to Guardian weapon legacy "Guardian Bleed Damage" at least the Tier 6 level is similar.
I seem to have overlooked that legacy entirely, oops. It should indeed be the case that other tiers scale the same as "Guardian Bleed Damage", so your data is all I need to fix it.

I'll upload a new version of the plugin real soon, thanks for your report!

Hi Equendil,

Thx for this plugins

Here is a tiny contribution to help you: a partial french translation (commons, minstrel & hunter only). http://kikibased.free.fr/lotroPlugins/fr.lua

Please note that the German translation is not up to date, so legacies that have been altered or are new may display in English in LIP. I have contacted Amethadan who provided me German localization so far.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass die deutsche Übersetzung ist nicht auf dem neuesten Stand, so dass Hinterlassenschaften, die verändert wurden oder neu sind wird in englischer Sprache in LIP anzuzeigen. Ich habe Amethadan, die Deutsch bis jetzt übersetzt kontaktiert.
(Awful Google translation, sorry)

Hey, thanks for the new version! The import working gooood, but the export give me error: "...the Rings Online\Plugins\Equendil\LIP\ChatExport.lua:37: attempt to call field 'QuickSlot' (a nil value)"
When I install I clear the old folder, so there is no old code except the saved LI's.
Gah, thanks for the report. v2.0.1 uploaded. It should be working now.

v2.0 is finally out !

LIP now covers LIs up to level 95, and has two new features: LIs in LIP can now be imported from the chat or exported to it ! (with some limitations, see below).

Cheers to people who provided data and encouragement

Please report any discrepancy between real LIs and their counterparts in LIP.

- Updated: Legendary items between level 86 and 95, third and second age, are now covered
- Updated: legacies match the many changes & new legacies in the HD expansion
- Updated: name of various legacies that were altered in the HD expansion or recent updates

Dude, hurry up! I need your tool!

What do think? When are you done with it? Your last post was nearly a month ago.

I'm missing LIP's opportunities.
