    The new view isn't going to give any indication of reforged/improved stats...
    I don't mind mimicing the new format as long as I can still come to eq2u and see the reforge and imbue stats easily

    DBG Dev #1 - 'We have too many stats, what can we do about it?'
    DBG Dev #2 - 'We could consolidate stats, have a crunch and balance again?'
    DBG Dev #3 - 'We could hide them all from the item window, offer it as a new feature and go be sarcastic in Discord instead?'

    DBG Dev #3 wins Employee of the Month.

    Oh look son, its retarded! (DBG)

    Another easy band aid fix instead of fixing a fundamental problem, the stats themselves..

    I won't touch how we display Reforging, Experimentation or Infusing which are, I think, 10 times better than how EQ2 displays this information. I'm only talking columns and consolidating what's displayed. I am puzzled about them moving item flags to the bottom of the sheet.

    Do people want to be able to collapse Effect blocks? That appears to be what they're going for.

    Also I wonder if they have considered how Item Sets will look.

    Yeah, the flag thing's going to cause problems, I just know it.

    Seriously, Exhibit A on DBG's misprioritization problem.

    Kander told me about this item examine window revamp in 2014. :eek:

    The question is did it really take them that long to do it.. or are they pulling 'fluffy' projects off the waaaaay back-burner because they don't have the time/resources/whatever to do real projects?

    Can't revamp a window if someone keeps adding more stats to it each time!

    I have implemented some of the changes from EQ2 Live onto the item examine and popup windows on EQ2U. Namely I've grouped stats together and cleaned up innate Effects. I will not be changing our Reforging/Infusing/Experimenting interface.

    Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated.

    The character item cache table had surpassed 4GB and was causing major lag so I cleared it.

    Upside: Great performance
    Downside: Followed characters have no gear

    Fortunately I added a button to refresh that character's gear. :)

    I wouldn't rush to make too many more changes yet, Feldon. Kander is apparently inviting PMs for feedback on the new window and people's problems with it because they're 'listening' to their customers! Of course he didn't make any promises of anything beyond 'listening' so I doubt anythiing will actually change.

    I copied over the few changes that seemed to be an improvement. ;)
