Profession AddOns

Due to the increasing data size and memory usage with each WoW expansion, the professions have been split into their own AddOns; you need only download the ones you'll be using. Each installed and enabled profession AddOn will load whenever it's first accessed by the ARL core.

You can either download the Ackis Recipe List Addon Pack which has Ackis Recipe List's core and all profession AddOns, or install the profession AddOns separately:

Note that Ackis Recipe List will not work without the AddOn for the profession you are trying to scan. If you attempt to scan a profession that is not installed, you will be informed.

Feature Requests/Bug Reporting

Please follow these small little instructions to make our lives easier. The easier you make development for Ackis Recipe List, the more time we will have to develop other addons.

Ackis Recipe List strives to integrate with existing trade skill mods out there. If you have a request for integration, please submit a feature request at WoW Ace. We make no promises to implement the feature at all. There is a limited API documented to interface with the ARL database. If you are a developer and would like more functions, please contact us on IRC. Currently, the mod works with:

    Hey, really love this addone, but its kinda annoying that you have to press CRTL + SHIFT Click every recipe you want to locate on the map.

    I think i remembered that before the prepatch we were able to put all recipes on the map with 1 click, but i ofc first got your addone right before the patch, and i did not get to collect all the recipes, its for my Cooking, Tailoring and Enchanting atm, so its a lot of clicking :D

  • #2201

    I have Weapon - Healing Power, however ARL says I don't have it. I've tried reinstalling the app but it still says I don't have it. Also several Tailoring patterns are showing up as not known but they are.

    I have strange problem with this addon. It works perfectly fine on all my alts but can't run it on my main. If it does matter, alts are below 90lvl. When I try to show up missing recipe list using "/arl scan" command only tradeskill window opens. When I press button "Scan" nothing happens.

    I have all list addons downloaded and I tried configuration where all other addons where turned off - I only had core ARL and Cooking list active. Still no luck. My main's name doesn't contain any special signs. Any ideas?

  • #2198

    Why isn't there an option to download the list and all its addons at once? There's the pack, which allows installation via Curse Client, but I don't particularly want to use the Curse Client. I like downloading and installing manually.

  • #2197

    Ever since the new update, several cooking recipes seem to be missing that were added in 5.4. The recipes are all contained in these objects:

    They were in the list before the update under Vale of Eternal blossoms but not anymore. I did not learn all of them, and  they are not removed from the game. I have every option checked to make sure im not missing anything but they are still not there.

    It seems to be showing Engineering recipes that I cannot use on my rogue (plate/mail/cloth items), even though I only have Rogue checked in the Class list in the Filters. Is there something not working correctly with class filtering?


  • #2204

    Its an issue with Blizzard not marking those items as specifically for certain classes.. If I manually set them for certain classes, any time I update the database again, they would reset and be removed..

    1x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn 'AckisRecipeList' tried to call the protected function 'UseQuestLogSpecialItem()'.
    !BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:586: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:586>
    [C]: in function `UseQuestLogSpecialItem'
    ..._ObjectiveTracker\Blizzard_QuestObjectiveTracker.lua:198: in function <..._ObjectiveTracker\Blizzard_QuestObjectiveTracker.lua:191>


  • #2203

    This is actually another addon touching the Quest log and causing issues, not Ackis Recipe List.. We don't touch the Quest Log at all.

  • #2193

    I am also having the issue where I get a popup saying the addon isn't loaded when I try to scan.  Any thoughts on this?  I have is loaded.


  • #2195

    Grab the pack, addon is split now:

  • #2192

    I love this addon and have been using it for quite some time, I recently changed professions to Engineering. The problem is that the addon is identifying and pointing me to recipes I can't learn due to specialisation (I guess) Is there something I am missing in the options to remove specialised recipes? Like Goblin Vs Gnome? Thank you! :)

  • #2188

    As of the new version / patch, i am no longer able to put things on the map, with the recipe locations.

    Im not sure why tho, is it depended on other add-ons that could not had been updated yet or ?

  • #2189

    That functionality requires TomTom, which has not yet been updated for 6.0.2

  • #2185

    I just checked the addon in the auction house, and this addon is not recognizing that I own most of the leatherworking recipes already. I did a clean installation of both WoW and my addons because of an unrelated issue I encountered during patching.

    The addon IS showing all missing recipes correctly but when I go into the auction house and do a scan of recipes for sale with the "Already Known" box ticked it shows all recipes that exist. I also use Auctioneer (also updated to the 6.02 version).

    I've only checked this with leatherworking and only tested it for that profession. I am not a technical person so I can't really give info about that side of it so I am describing what I did. I have my addons turned off, but ackis recipe list and auctioneer are essential for me so those I am running right now so essentially the condition of my "error" is with those two addons turned on and it happened after doing a scan of AH with Auctioneer when selecting Leatherwork recipes and to see if I could purchase any missing recipes.

    P.S. Adding this because I remembered, I got all modules with the data installed too.
