Will this be a thing now that we can research items?

Good a just to show what the decrit ion and possibly info on where it's at, giving away to much info can kill aspects of the game.

Otherwise I'd say awesome

I was thinking of just the info you get when you look over a monster under normal circumstances (like the /research itemname or item examination) since /research is free.
I do like Terron's idea that more info costs money, if that became the case though (I guess it would be something like /pet info # with the amount of details showing dependent on the gold used to research) then some creatures should be un-researchable?
I remember a debate from earlier about this kind of thing though... cant find it, basically people wanted all info to be available others said nooooo you should do your own research and find out the information by hitting everything with different divs etc (I kinda liked a diablo 1 way of doing it, the more you kill something the more info you got).

I would say it could work on any monster that is regular and will show description and image only, like a look over.

Any uncommon monster or up will not be displayed by default, much like how we can disable items from being shown too in the academia, though I dunno if any items do this yet. This should be in suggestions though.

It should give the monster description and image. We have ranger id scroll for the other information.
