View Full Version : [DBC] How to edit gems bonuses.

10-28-2013, 06:32 PM
Hello, Members, admins, today i gonna show you how to edit your gems values.
I don't take any Credits for that , because that was answer to my question in support section.
P.s That is my first "tutorial" on that forum, don't blame me if i do something wrong. :)

Okay, first of all what we need.

[DBC] edit program, i using DBC EDITOR. you can download it from here : http://www.mediafire.com/download/mmtyggkhwim/DBC+Editor.rar
The Gem id which we wanna to edit, for example i will take this : http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=40111
Time and good music.

Okay, we can start.
Open up your DBC editor and choose the "spellItemEnchantment.dbc" file.
Locate your eyes to column number "33" and scroll down until you see your gem item id, for example mine was "40111" and i found that :


Good, i found mine gem. now i scroll left to column number "5" and number "8"
Change the value which you need, for example i will take the "100"


Okay, we changed the value of gem, but the description still the same...
No problem, just navigate your mouse to column "14" And change the description of your Gem. Mine was +20 str, i change it to +100.

Tadaaaam. Now you need to make custom patch , if you don't know how to do that, just feel free to ask, i will update this "tutorial" soon then. :)

Good luck, and thank you for your attention. :)

You can only have one number or letter for the patch. patch-5.mpq and patch.t.mpq are both valid, patch-11.mpq is not.

After 3 days to research how to make a custom patch. I really don't know how to do it. I made a patch like this: ( Facebook link )

But i don't see what i made in game, what is wrong here :'(

ok a little guide :
Download MPQ editor (google.com MPQ editor)
open it Create new MPQ - > next - > next
Create folder DBFilesClient
Place your edited .dbc file
Don't forget name mpq file patch-4.MPQ

And don't forget to edit your server side .dbc :)

I did that serverals time, but it won't help :-<. I place patch file in wow/data folder. I'm using 4.3.4 server

P/s: Custom gem i made following your guide, it works but it won't display. I know it works by see stats increase by add socket gem!

04-07-2015, 09:36 AM
YOu deleted cache folder?

04-07-2015, 09:40 AM
I deleted cache folder and use DBC files from DBC Server folder :-<. I did this serveral times, not sure what i'm doing wrong or what i made mistake on config or something like that @_@

04-07-2015, 09:57 AM
well, maybe you edited .dbc file a little wrong (description)?

04-07-2015, 10:08 AM
I was running a server in local with it, everything is OK, stat increase when i use custom gem, i can buy item in shop with custom extendedcosts. The problem is only i don't know how to make patches or my repack doesn't support it? I don't have experience about making patch -_-

What you posted is very confusing. What you're saying is your custom gem works but you don't know how to make patches? How did you get the custom gem to work if you don't know how to make a patch for it? I read the other posts in page one and you're very confusing. :P

For one, I don't recommend using a repack. Given that some DBC edits don't require server side changes, it is just the fact you're very limited on what you can do when using a repack.

The only major things you need to worry about when making patches is the patch name, folder names and where folders are placed via MPQ.

You can view: https://emudevs.com/showthread.php/3339-How-to-create-an-MPQ-Archive to make an MPQ archive file.

1. Once you've made your MPQ file, open it up with Ladik's MPQ Editor
2. Make a new folder called "DBFilesClient"
3. Click on the folder and move your edited dbc file in it
4. Move your new MPQ into your World of Warcraft\Data folder
5. Move the edited dbc into your Server's dbc\ folder and replace the old one

Simple as that. Don't forget to close WoW.exe and clear your cache every time you restart the server when editing existing items.

Hi Tommy :3
Well, i know how it works because this:
1: https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/10393790_10200436870240237_3247365651875705277_n.j pg?oh=ca8f656d13a6aaa7c2d188958f982fa3&oe=55E4074B&__gda__=1436243758_7d5cbb87af8406c8c254cfac0f230f8 3
2: https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/10393790_10200436870240237_3247365651875705277_n.j pg?oh=ca8f656d13a6aaa7c2d188958f982fa3&oe=55E4074B&__gda__=1436243758_7d5cbb87af8406c8c254cfac0f230f8 3

It isn't show that is red gem give +400 strength

And i downloaded MPQ in Emudevs host. Then i do this:
1: https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/t31.0-8/11095619_10200436869760225_7026187009168225465_o.j pg
2: https://scontent-sin.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xta1/t31.0-8/11147070_10200436869640222_1035729618193366459_o.j pg

Then the result:
https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/11067593_10200436869840227_8297552635177668614_n.j pg?oh=bfbfbf17aca4e2bd3a9f8dbd64020b51&oe=55E5C7E3&__gda__=1436196742_7b954b9c324d6502de6af075eb80404 d
This is just example of custom patch not working for extendedcosts :)

I followed all of your step, which DBC i edited, i already placed it in DBC Folder. Thanks for your time ;)

After research in internet, i know that guide is only for 3.3.5a, not 4.3.4 :-<

04-10-2015, 12:45 PM
The major issue can be in changed files structure and stuff , how i know all what > 4.0.6 do not support custom patches, since we can't create custom items on that patches i think that can cross the way for custom sockets display too & most of custom stuff. :)

04-11-2015, 02:47 AM
Thanks for reply. Finally i figure it out, i asked some people in wowsource , they told me make wow patched first before make patch. :D

12-21-2015, 10:09 PM
glad you solved it, damn that weird feeling when you look to your own tut to make it again after that time xD
