It updates everything both player and item values since the mod already grabbed that info from the site anyway.
Besides it's easy to spam everything in the channel because people are lazy so they forget to update it themselfs besides this will sync it for the entire raid which makes it that much easier.
The reason we altered it is simply because of a few things:
- people are too lazy to update it themselfs everytime.
- the one who updates the DKP can immidiately update his values and send it ingame
- many people wanted to know the dkp values of some items before they start bidding this way they can see it ingame and the leaders to have to keep a second text file up to date as in INCdkp
we could optionally look into the idea of seperating the spam of PlayerDKP and ItemDKP into two commands.
actually we currently have a version of modified getdkp running in the guild. users just log on like they normally do only 1 person fetch the values from the site and it can then spam it in a background channel so everyone gets the info.
currently updating takes about 1,5 minute with 70 members and roughly 250 items. What we still need to do are:
port it to Ace and FuBar (it now uses Titan Panel)
remove the custom tooltip and place it in the itemtooltip
remove all the whisper code.
