While it's "automated" now I could certainly take some pointers that's been updating their personal spreadsheet for years now. I'm sure you'll have a lot to say about potential improvements Dante!
As it stands I plan to:
-Embed links in the item names
-Add info about rarity
-Add info about DA/ Non-DA/ DC
Indeed. I never bothered to embed links, though it's not a bad idea. I have rarities in my list, though it doesn't differentiate between seasonal and actual rares, something I should've done.
DA/Non-DA/DC info is in there. Of course, there are some DA+DC items, so they're tracked on two separate colums. (DA? Yes/No and DC? Yes/No)
Someone mentioned having different types of accessories in different tabs. It helps with specific searching, and at least with my limited set of abilities, is the easiest way for me to lift the stats of the "best" of that type of eqipment slot to help determine the specific stats you have for the weapons to determine which happens to be best for you. (Of course, right now this spreadsheet doesn't calculate the best gear in any way, it's just a massive pile of information, so that's something in the future, maybe)
For weapons, I'm not sure if the program can make note of weapons with multiple elements, but if it can, it would probably be good for the sake of searching specific elemental weapons to have the weapon listed multiple times, once for each elements. (That's what I do, anyways. That kinda goes back to the calculation of items though)
Now, I don't know the limits of the program you made (Or rather, what possible limits it could have in relation to ideas), but these are things I never implemented, but I'd like to have had.
First of all, I never actually made a list for all Daggers and Staffs/Staves. 99% of the items this doesn't matter with since they are identical through the board par the primary damage stat, but that does mean I'm missing a few unique weapons. Whenever the weapons are done, I'd like to help myself to all of that, just for the sake of completion, if that's acceptable.
Secondly, having the weapon (and accessories, and probably pets for utility if we ever get there) in the list note that it has a special would be nice. Finding an up to date list for special stuff is kinda hard.
It's likely I'll still post my own spreadsheet at some point (Probably sometime in the weekend when I have the time to get it up to date and all, it's kinda unfortunate that I refuse to post incomplete stuff :P) since right now, they still have wildly different purposes, essentially. And going forward, it probably wouldn't hurt to explore the possibility of just combining the two (I'm certain that as everything I've done was done by hand, there are mistakes, I'd be impressed with myself if there weren't), or at least, maybe having the whole automated process help out with my spreadsheet, and work to improve it to more accurately represent the quality of items.
