Create Fake Trade Tooltips – WoW

Create Fake Trade TooltipsIt's very easy to Create Fake Trade Tooltips, once you know how. In fact, you might have already seen some of the items which have been created floating in the trade channels at times. But you probably looked at the item and though that it was totally bogus, as no item in game would ever have those stats - unless a rogue GM created the item (it has happened... but this isn't one of those times).

When people Create Fake Trade Tooltips, they usually have absolutely insane item levels, stats and all other sorts of weird things. 

Create Fake Trade Tooltips

It's very simple to Create Fake Trade Tooltips. I've gone through nearly every bonusID to help you create your very own to link around for fun.

Step One to Create Fake Trade Tooltips: The Template


/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("\124cff0070dd\124Hitem:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h[Your Item]\124h\124r");

This is what we'll be working from. Take note of the color codes so you can follow along and add what you'd like.

Step Two to Create Fake Trade Tooltips: Picking your item

Very easy to do. Simply go to Wowhead and search for the item you'd like. Go to that items page and take note of the itemID, which can be located in the URL here:

Create Fake Trade Tooltips
Replace the red "0" in the template with this itemID.

Step Three to Create Fake Trade Tooltips: Picking an Enchant

Go back to Wowhead and search for the enchant you want. Once you've found it, click on the Enchant link:
Create Fake Trade Tooltips
Scroll down and find the Effect. Take the number between the brackets as shown, and place it into green "0" of the template.

Step Four to Create Fake Trade Tooltips: Picking Your Gems

There's no one central link for gemIDs, but

Step Five to Create Fake Trade Tooltips: Stats and other nonsense

You can have up to 15 BonusIDs. First, set the orange "0" to the number of BonusIDs you want to use. It's fine to set this at 15 and use less.

Then, you start mixing and matching the blue "0"'s. I've compiled a somewhat preliminary list of BonusIDs. It's not 100% accurate because I did it by hand, but it's more than enough to get started.
