Description
WardenEase was originally developed by Deusdictum but has since stopped updating it, and has graciously allowed others to pick up where it was left off.

Per the original information:

WardenEase creates three bars that hold all of your gambits and another bar with quickslots. When you click on a gambit from one of the three bars, the quickslots are filled with the gambit building skills needed to execute the gambit. Simply click the skills in order to execute it. The gambit will remain for you to execute it again, or you can select another gambit.

Features:
  • Automatically adds new gambits and quickslots as you level and learn new skills. This should work indefinitely even if if new gambits are added because it pulls gambit information directly from the game. NOTE: Turbine broke this feature with Helm's Deep.
    Special Note: Because it pulls the information from the game, it's a bit delayed due to the fact that when you learn a new skill there's no events fired (events are only fired when you level up). You'll have to wait until you level again before it updates properly, or you can use /we2 refresh, or unload and reload the plugin for it to update.
    Special Note: Because "Trained Skills" are skills you have trained whether you can actually use them or not, the plugin will always list all Fast Builder skills even if you can't use some of them.
  • Color codes for correct building sequences will display behind the builders.
    Initially, the color will be WHITE behind them, meaning it is waiting for a builder to be used. GREEN means you are building the gambit correctly, and RED means there is one or more incorrect builders present in the sequence. BLACK means the gambit builder location is not used.
    The actual gambit skill will have WHITE/GREEN/RED behind it too, WHITE meaning that the gambit sequence is being built, but not finished yet, and the sequence doesn't include any incorrect builders; GREEN means the gambit is ready to be used (special note: if you have other builders after the gambit sequence that changes the gambit, the gambit will still display GREEN); and RED means that there is an incorrect builder present.
    Please see the side pictures for better clarification.
  • Key overlays. These display the corresponding key you need to use in order to execute the builder or gambit.
    Currently, you can only set the overlays to 1 through 4, and the defaults are what most Wardens use: 1-Spear, 2-Shield, 3-Fist, 4-Gambit.
    You can change these numbers by using the menu button.
    You can turn on/off this feature using the menu as well.
  • Customize the gambit bars.
    You can hide different gambits you don't care to see by right clicking on the gambit, and then selecting hide from the drop down menu.
    You can show hidden gambits by right clicking any gambit on the bar, and selecting the "Show...<gambit name>" option, or the "Show All" option at the bottom. Note that you can't hide ALL gambits on one bar (use the main menu to hide the entire bar).
  • Customize the main WE2 window.
    You can switch whether the fast builders display above or below the builder and gambit skills by using the main menu button.
    You can switch where the Fast Builder skills are location in the 3x3 grid by right clicking on one of the Fast Builders and selecting which one you want in that spot. It will swap the one you selected and the one that was originally in that spot. Special Note: When switching the Fast Builders from above to below and vice versa, they get reversed, so set the fast builder location before setting where you want each individual one to be).
    You can show/hide the recovery skills and the fast builder skills if you do not wish to see them on the main WE2 window.
  • Use layout mode (CTRL + \) to move the UI around and rotate the gambit bars.
  • One gambit bar for each type of gambit (Spear, Fist, Shield)
    Right-click the down arrow in the main gambit window to hide / show individual gambit bars.
  • Adds slash commands to populate the main WardenEase2 window. E.g. "/we2 Brink Of Victory" will populate the WardenEase2 window with the "Brink of Victory" gambit sequence. These slash commands can be used in aliases / shortcuts and placed in any quickslot! You do not even have to type the full name in, for example "/we2 deft" will display Deft Strike or "/we2 conv" will display Conviction. When using partial names, please use at least three characters.
  • Tooltips for Fist, Shield, and Spear gambits will display when you hover over them. NOTE: These tooltips are now pulled directly from the game, and may not include all the information the normal tooltips display.
    You can turn off Tooltips by clicking the down arrow and selecting the "Hide Descriptions."
    Please let me know of any problems or missing tooltips.
  • Should now properly work with German clients.
    Currently, only translations for German clients has been completed. If you would like to add translations for the French or Russian client, please get into contact with me. Until I can get translations for the other clients, WE2 will not work on those.
  • No dependencies.

Future Plans:
  • Continue working on Tooltips. Perhaps find a more efficient way to display them. Any suggestions?
  • Allow users to customize a special bar for whatever gambits the user wants.
  • Add more customization to the numbers on the quickslot boxes, so that users will know which key (defaults 1-4) to press to execute a certain builder or gambit. Perhaps this can be extended to the Gambits bars themselves if the user is using aliases to set the Gambits.
  • Have color coding and/or numbering (similar to the builders) for the Fast Builders so if you wish to create a gambit faster you know which Fast Builders to use.

Known Issues:
  • API LIMITATION: The API does not allow you to determine whether the client is in layout mode (CTRL + \) or not. If you load the plugin in layout mode, turn layout mode off and reload the plugin.
  • Skills might be off if you have just trained a new skill or gambit and have not leveled up afterwards, used /we2 refresh, or unload/reloaded the plugin. If you have trained a gambit and want it to show up on your gambit bars, please use /we2 refresh or unload and then reload the plugin.
  • When building gambits via the quickslot keys WE2 shows you, the refreshing mechanism that I use to keep tooltips updated makes it appear that a skill currently in the queue is actually not (as the dotted box won't appear around the skill button). I plan to fix this is a future update.

Please contact me with any problems.

Version History:

Version 3.3
  • Added translations for German clients. Many thanks for Burgus for the translations and inspiration to get it working and completed.
  • Fixed an issue when loading WardenEase2 using the Turbine Plugin Manager. The number of gambits were not showing up correctly due to the way Turbine loads in plugins and character attributes. You should now be able to automatically load WardenEase2 using the Turbine Plugin Manager without problems.
  • Added the ability to show/hide the recovery skills and the fast builder skills.

Version 2.5
  • Fixed issues that arose after Helm's Deep was released.
  • Possibly fixed an issue with ranged gambits not displaying correctly in the color coded helper.

Version 2.31
  • Now with less chat spam!

Version 2.3
  • Fixed an issue where the number of Fast Builders might be smaller than expected, causing the window to be larger than it should be. Or not since it was impossible to test this bug but the code was wrong. Who knows.
  • Add ability to move around the main WE2 window, basically reversing the direction the window is set up.
  • Added option to allow users to switch locations of the fast loaders in the 3x3 grid.
  • Fast Builders should now always show the proper tooltip.
  • Redundant code is now redundant. As such it has been removed.

Version 2.1
  • As this was a big change in terms of coding and features, I have skipped all the way to v2.1.
  • Fixed an error that caused European clients to have their save data corrupted, again. Thanks to Garan for his help solving this issue. Again.
  • Added key overlay that displays the key you should pressed to use a builder/gambit.
  • Added highlighting to the builders/gambit so the user knows if an incorrect builder was used.
  • Added customization of the individual gambit bars, so the user can hide gambits they no longer wish to see.
  • Some overall improvements in efficiency, coding, and usage. Less possibilities for errors and memory leaks. Backend stuff mostly.
  • When updating from a pre2.1 version, your settings will be wiped and you'll have to redo your settings. This is to make your settings compatible with the VindarPatch and other upgrades I did.

Version 0.99
  • Added all Spear gambit tooltips, which will change based on stance.
  • Fixed an error that caused European clients to have their save data corrupted. Thanks Barbatruck for bringing this to my attention and Garan for his LUA Tutorial on how to deal with this.

Version 0.93
  • Added all Fist gambit tooltips, which will change based on stance.
  • Fixed an error when a user did not have the first Recovery skill trained that prevented the plugin from loading. Thanks lebordeluche!
  • Fixed issue with tooltips displaying out of screen and behind other UI elements.

Version 0.9
  • Added all Shield gambit tooltips, which will change based on stance.
  • Fixed an error when a first-time user loaded WE2 and did not have a save file. Thanks wmrojer for bringing this to my attention!

Version 0.8
  • "LevelChanged" event for LocalPlayer will now play nicely with other plugins.
  • The Default Gambit skill will now show the correct tooltip even when a Gambit is being produced.
  • Tooltips implemention started. Conviction will show its tooltip based on stance.
  • Removed dependency on Turbine Utilities.

Version 0.7 - Initial Release
Note: When you first upgrade from a previous version (0.5 for example) of WardenEase to WardenEase2, your settings will be wiped due to some errors that had come up over time. This is to ensure your settings are stable. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: WardenEase2

Yeah I'm hoping I got all the dependencies removed, but it's possibly one slipped through, though your error doesn't point towards a dependency issue, it really sounds like a installation problem. Have you checked the folders I mentioned in the other post?

All files were present so I removed the entire plugin and got it again using the plugin compendium. So far it seems to be working ok but I have not had much time to check it. At least it loaded for me so all appears well! Thank you very much for your assistance!

No I do not but I thought I saw where it was no longer necessary to have it. I will try that and see, thank you.

I do not have this file located anywhere. I have never been able to get the plugin to load at all though it shows in the list of plugins I have when I look in Plugin Manager.

I understand about your time issues. Look how long it took me to try your suggestion and get back to you!

Thank you.
Did you have the Turbine Utilities installed, maybe this can be the problem, if not done you may find it here: http://content.turbine.com/sites/lot..._LuaPlugins.7z

If it doesn´t work try to install wardenease (by deusdictum) also, but don´t activate this in the plugin-manager.

Seems you may be missing some files. I would recommend trying to download and reinstall WardenEase2. The easiest way to do that is through the LOTRO Plugin Compendium, which automatically puts everything where it needs to go. If you do it manually, afterward check your "C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\SDRPlugins\WardenEase2" folder, and make sure it contains the Main.lua file, along with a few other ones (VindarPatch.lua, WEController.lua, WEQuickslotWindow.lua, _init_.lua). If it's missing any of those, then there's something wrong with your installation of the plugin.

Re: Re: WardenEase2

You could try deleting the settings to reset the plugin to see if that helps. Those are saved in something like C:\Users\<Your UserName>\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\<Your LOTRO Account UserName>\<Server You Play On>\<Character you Play> - and the file is "WardenEase.plugindata" simply delete it and try running the plugin again.

Wardenease2 German patch

You can now download a patch to get this addon to work on german clients, as workaround for the problems.

You may download it here: WardenEase2 2.5 German Patch

-----german-----

Ihr könnt einen Patch von mir für deutsche Clients herunterladen (siehe Link oben), der das Problem zumindest erstmal behebt und wardenease2 für uns wieder lauffähig macht.

Viel Spass

Thanks for your reply.
If the other solution doesn't work, let me know what (if any) errors you get when you try to load the plugin. That will help me narrow down the problem and find a solution. The error messages will appear in whatever chat tab you have that displays the General chat.

Re: Re: WardenEase2

There's currently some problems with the plugin due to Turbine breaking part of the API is uses. It should work on USA versions of the game (and most likely UK/other English versions), but not for other languages.

If you are on a non-English client, I hope to have the fix up sometime in May. I apologize for the delay for those that were looking for a fix towards the beginning of the year, I have been swamped with work and barely have time to even play the game, much less work on this plugin and some others I have been creating. Hopefully soon!

Thank you for the information update. Is there anything still to be done (except programming the LUA) which i could help with?

Thanks for the offer, but at this point it really is just the programming. Too many other projects going on unfortunately.

This version (2.5) isn´t compatible with german (and french) clients yet, but stever is working on a version that supports at least the german clients, but this can take a little time, as he wrote to me.

German:
Diese Version (2.5) ist nicht kompatibel mit deutschen (und französischen) Clients, Stever arbeitet aber an einer Version, die zumindest deutsche Clients unterstützt, nur kann das etwas dauern, wie Stever mir schrieb.

Hi,

is this new version of Warden Ease 2 already patched to work with german clients? I am a little confused with the "upload date" and the files date, therefore my question.
