Raid item drops - EverquestFollow

Is there a way to determine if an item is a raid drop from the Lucy database? I downloaded the item file and loaded it into my guild's database but it's huge. Would like to restrict it to raid drops.

First off, it's probably not Lucy's, and if it is, it's not allowed to be copied, from what I remember. At least for the items, the spells are offered for download though. Most likely you got eqitems one, as it's free to download. And either way, there is no innate tag for raid items. Also, if it is eqitems, it doesn't have any RoF items since the item collector for it has been broken since RoF release.

Maybe raidloot's database is free. If it is, it's pretty much limited to quested group gear and raid drops I think. At list there lists are organized that way. I haven't looked at the info they provide in detail to be sure.

Also, look at http://everquest.allakhazam.com/wiki/EQ:Lucy_Item_Definitions to see what info is specific to the database. This also cover eqitems, but the name of the database fields maybe slightly different in some respects, and pretty much should cover any item collector database you run across.

EDIT: And one other note about your title. In this forum, in general, it's good to indicate which game or program you're referring to unless it's a general zam issue. Thinks like EQ or preferrably Lucy would have been appropriate for yours, so people unfamiliar with your area don't have to read the post to find out, and can see from the title, they no nothing.

EDIT 2: Something you might be able to do with one of the free dbs, is filter it out manually to remove non-raid items. Just getting rid of general inventory items (itemtype = 11) will get rid of more than half of the items, then removing anything that's not a weapon, armor, jewelry, or an aug will get rid of pretty much everything, although I think spell runes for turn ins and some quested raid gear pieeces will be removed that way, but if you work at it, you can get rid of most stuff you're not interested in before you merge with your guild database.

When I was loot monitor, I just used a spreadsheet, and once I entered an item name and ID once, it was in the history list to select again. Required very little editing, and just used links to Alla or other sites to reference the items in reports.

Hope this helps some,

Yther Ore.

Thanks for the info. Although I've tried WoW, I've only ever really played EQ and when I started Alla was only EQ, and that's how I will look at it forever probably.

I am trying to make it as easy as possible for the points keepers especially since loots take almost as long as the raid does. Not sure how up to date eqitems is and if I padded it with what was currently known to us, but it seems ok to use so far.
