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.

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.

Detailed Documentation

  • 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.

    The problem was solved by doing research for 2 more days after your addon said I had them all. I'm guessing it has been solved with your latest update. I generally find the addon very useful and have no problems, so I'm guessing this was just a small glitch. Thanks for spending the time on it for all us wow folk.

    @Adm111: Can you be more specific on the origami recipes? Because there is the Origami rock and slimes which are found as drops in Deepholm and Vash'jir respectively. If you're referring to the ones from MoP, then it's a random chance to discover when you do the research. You'll just have to get lucky. Best bet, learn all the glyphs you can from research. Might as well because in patch 5.4 there will be new ones and I'm betting I'll either have to buy them from the trainer or learn them via research (oh bother!) Get researching! ^-^


  • #1943

    I will get that last origami recipe one day, but I have no reason to visit Vash and it isn't on my priority list. While the sun is out I intend to enjoy that instead. Happy researching :)

    It needs serious updating since the most recent patch.  For me it shows leatherworking patterns I've already learned and levelled past, plus I have world drop/events and pvp, raid both unchecked in filters yet it still shows those recipes/patterns.  Even with that being said, it's still the best prof addon around.

  • #1945

    Well I had submitted a ticket but it was removed.  "Declined - We decided not to take action on this ticket."

  • #1944

    Okay, ticket has been created.

  • #1940

    All recipes should be up to date.

    Would you mind submitting a bug report here:

    If possible, add some screenshots of the weird data.

  • #1930

    When will they finish the translation of the addon in Portuguese??
    I like it a lot and it's making me really miss... =/

  • #1936

    Localizations are pretty much left up to the fans of the addon.  I don't speak anything other than english fluently.

    For some reason, it doesn't work if you have the Archy addon. It doesn't crash, but if you click "scan" nothing happens. If Archy isn't active, ARL works normaly.

  • #1939

    I'm running both Archy and ARL.

    Are your lua errors enabled?

  • #1929

    It might be something else causing the problem as I keep Archy active and my ARL still scans.

  • #1927

    JC: All the recipes using King's Amber, Dreadstone and other gems of that level, are shown as blue quality in the recipe list. But all of those are epic quality, so I assume the text should be purple?

  • #1925

    Just been working on my Druid's Leatherworking & found an odd 'glitch'.
    When filtering to find remaining recipe sources, I noticed a dropped 'tie-in' between Mob. Drop inside & outside of Instances.

    Filtered for Classic only Recipes, with World Drop & Mob. Drop off, Leatherworking returns the following 5 recipes (that my Druid hasn't learned - may be others) under Mob.Drop in Aquisition Tab:

    Black Dragonscale Leggings
    Black Dragonscale Shoulders
    Red Dragonscale Breastplate
    Volcanic Shoulders
    Volcanic Breastplate

    Granted these DO drop off Mob's, they drop off Instance Mobs. That said, would the Instance filter be a better 'label' for these recipes to be reported under, rather than Mob. Drop?

    While typing this, I 'played' with the filtering & unchecking 'Instance' removed them from the 'report'.

    To further compound confusion, 2 (Green Dragonscale) recipes that drop in Temple of Atal'Hakkar are referred to as WORLD drops, yet are removed from reporting with the Instance tag unchecked...??

    I'm not sure if this is the same for other professions, but could the whole database do with a tagging refresh, maybe...?  I hasten to add - I'm not a coder & am very appreciative of the work that goes into add-on creation/maintainence.

    Honestly I've noticed this myself, and when I do find something like that I try to streamline the process.

    For anything you do find, if you could report it here:

    That will make things a lot easier on us.
