Accessing Chat Logs
by Dash.3179 in API Development

Is there an 'official' way to access the GW2 chat logs? perhaps via API?

I'm looking to create a tool to make it easier to record drop-rates from multiple bags (to plug up some of the holes containers have in the wiki), and was intending to combine character inventory data from an api link with chat data to chart the individual drops and drop-ranges.
Ideally I'd like to use "https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/characters/:id/inventory" to directly record items going in-and-out (what I'd consider the 'easy way'), but the loading time is around 6 seconds it can't keep up with "open all".

I believe that the "Guild Wars 2 Dmg Meter" records some numerical data from chat without breeching the ToS, but I haven't had a lot of experience with coding beyond a fairly basic TP/price-tracking spreadsheet, so I think implementing something computer vision based might be a bit beyond me (unless somone's aware of a pre-existing tool I haven't found).

looking at #130 , can't users just calculate the value themselves?
seems like a waste of time to expose the exact result

lower values aren't exact
the less you want to exchange, the more expensive it gets on average
