Hello, I've taken a look at the wowace page for the DogTag library and also have Googled this information, but I don't see a dogtag for showing a player's Outland faction (Aldor or Scryer) in the tooltip.
Does anyone know if such a dogtag exists? While grouping with others, having this information readily available would be useful.
Oh believe me, I have "asked" them which faction they're in. The server I play on has a "need before greed" general rule on Outland faction items, but some people like to lie about their faction and need on faction-only items and then sell them on the market...basically screwing over someone else in the group who is truly a part of that Outland faction and could have used it. Hence, why I asked if there was such a DogTag to avoid the "Lie, Need and Sell" scenarios. Looking it up on the wowarmory helps, but takes time and the roll is usually over by then.
Haha. Well, you're out of luck... as I said, there is no API function to return any information whatsoever about other players' faction reputations. Theoretically you could datamine the Armory and load that information in-game... there is an arena addon that was written to load talent information for all players on your battlegroup; although this is no longer needed with the new talent inspection API, the principle would work for other information as well. And unlike talents, faction reputations aren't usually subject to significant change.
