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.

Known Issues

Feature Requests/Bug Reporting

Read the Bug Reporting and Feature Requesting information before submitted a bug report or feature request. Posting reports in the comments is not the place to do so. Ackis had to turn off the comments at because of constant bug reports and feature requests. Comments are for questions on how to use the mod, or you can see the thread on WoW Ace. 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.

Bug Reports

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:

If your mod should be on this list, please submit a ticket.

Detailed Documentation


  • Ideas for the mod came from FGTradeLacker (original mod no longer updated, however someone has taken over updating the recipes for it).

  • Please see the X-Credits field for more Acknowledgments. Any code snippets borrowed or inspired from are credited in the code files. The main display also lists all people who are in X-Credits.

    Just a quick FYI that the manual download is borked again, clicking on the "Download Now" button gives version instead of the latest version, I also notice that the details section above shows "Newest File:" which is the clue that the site hasn't updated correctly for the latest file.

  • #2310

    Curious why High Society Top Hat does not appear in this addon.

  • #2309

    wanted to let you know that your addon blocks the use of Archy- Archaeology Assistant


  • #2307

    Think I may have solved a relatively low priority problem for this add-on:
    Is the Faction listed as "Unknown_941" under TBC supposed to be The Mag'har - the Horde equivalent to The Kurenai...?

  • #2308

    With Mists of Pandaria, Blizzard changed the GetFactionInfoByID function to only return valid data for factions your character can gain reputations with. Since the factions a given character can't ally with is a relatively small subset, writing special-case code to handle user-localized names for each was something I elected not to do. I may revisit that decision in the future, with Legion.

  • #2306

    There seems to have been a loss of functionality some time fairly recently. I am not sure when.

    When I look at my list in the Enchanting module, the part/item that the enchant can be applied to is missing. For example there are three items displaying "Minor Agility". I have to mouse over each item to see a tooltip that tells me which part/area that applies. 

    There does not seem to be a setting to revert to the older method of diplaying.

    Can you help, please.

    Hi Ocgineer.

  • #2302

    Haven't played wow since the end of Wrath, came back and started using mods again after two months. Having issues with where to put the profession mod folders. I don't have a need for a few of the professions, but all of them seem to have over-lapping files, like Core.lua; Discoveries.lua, Recipes.lua etc.

    Do I leave them in their respective folders, and put the extra's somewhere specific so ARL knows they exist? Drop the folders into a sub-folder inside of ARL? Or something else.... right now I only have DBM, ARL, and AtlasLoot for mods, so it's unlikely another mod causing the ARL error that tells me:

    [[Error no profession module addons were found. As of version ... blah blah blah. ]]

  • #2303

    All of the folders go in Interface\AddOns right next to Ackis Recipe List itself.

  • #2304

    Hmm, odd then I seem to be having an issue :\ I have the addon folders sitting next to ARL core and it doesn't notice them. I'll try deleting, and only using one addon, and verify it works with only one profession before adding more.

    Edit: just deleted, and checked with a fresh download of just the cooking addon, still getting the same error. Folder named either the downloaded [AckisRecipeList_Cooking-] or [AckisRecipeList_Cooking] in the main wow/interface/addons folder, and ARL doesn't seem to recognize.

    Edit 2: and now suddenly it chooses to work this time, I'm very confused and going to add some other professions one by one until either it stops working again, or I withdraw the issue.

    Edit 3: Ok, last night when I posted with the files where they are now, it didn't work. Now all professions work, very confusing, but it works so I'm not going to complain. Thanks

    I installed this addon like 1 year ago and deleted it now, since I don't need it anymore.

    unfortunately my wow keeps crashing since I deleted it from my addons ordner. any fix for this?




  • #2300

    If you come visit me, and provide information I ask for, I can figure out the cause of your crash, and help you fix it...  But ARL won't be the cause.

    Well, I dont understand this IRC. Could we talk via PM or something?

  • #2299

    AddOns are completely separate from the WoW client binary; their presence or lack thereof is of no consequence to the operation of the client.

    when scanning multible professions, we've been able to just click the profession icon (upper left in the scan window) to go to the next profession.

    but for a while now, when you get to mining, it won't click to the next profession.

    don't know if it makes any difference, but it's called "smelting" on the wow icon, and "mining" on arl.

    and thanks, love this mod
