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.

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  • Ideas for the mod came from FGTradeLacker (original mod no longer updated, however someone has taken over updating the recipes for it).
  • Ace community for listening to my questions on the IRC channel and helping me out, and fellow mod authors for developing such great add-ons.
  • 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.
  • Everyone who has helped me with localizations.

    Hi! I love the add-on very much - it's perfect for the completionist in me. :)

    One thing: Would it be possible to add archaeology to the list? Like to show which ones you have and which ones you don't? I don't know how add-ons work so if it's not, that's fine! 

    Thank you :)

    A proposal: Split "Discovery" in several categories, by gem color.

    First of all, good job with this add on. I use it since TBC.

    Now, my problem.

    When I try to remove one talent, WoW not let me.  Normally, it is from the 2nd change. The first talent let me delete it, but when I'm going to delete a 2nd WoW tells me it "can not unless you deactivate the ARL".

    My tests have been on the tier level 90, but do not dismiss it from 2nd in any tier.

    My version of ARL is 2.4.1-57-g1406152 (alpha release on October 15).


    Regards and sorry for my English.

    It sounds like more of Blizzard coding issues.  Unfortunately Blizzard's API tools have been causing issues, and their error messages don't always point to the actual cause of the addon causing the problem.

    Try temporarily disabling ARL before making this change.  Chances are, you'll still get the problem, but it'll point to the actual addon causing the problem.

    How can I  get recipes to sort by level instead of alphabetically? would like to see them in order of being able to get them so I can easily see what I still need to acquire at current level.

  • #1824

    Hi, i just completed the spanish traslation, took a few days but i finally checked every npc name that wasnt on wowhead. Is there a way i can start using it?  As a recipe collector, I really need Ackis recipe list :D

  • #1825

    I just pushed an update to ARL, which should bring in the current localizations.  The latest alpha should work. :)

    Recipes still listed as Vendored when they are only trained (since patch 4.0):

    Charred Bear Kabobs

    Juicy Bear Burger

    Barbecued Buzzard Wing

    This is the list I have so far, there likely are others.

  • #1818

    Thanks for the report Aulliwyn.  These and a few additional recipes have been updated in the latest alpha.

    Hi, I have a problem with this addon. I can see the SCAN button in the recipe window but nothing else. When I click on this button, nothing happens. I get the setup window when I type /alr but I do not see any other window. Am I missing a special trick to show the information this addon is intended for?
    I also disabled all the other addons but the result was the same...

    I am using the german client of MOP x64 5.0.5 and ARL 2.4.1

    Can you try installing the alpha version, and see if that helps?

    Looks much better now. I installed 2.4.1-55 and after clicking the SCAN button I see the ARL window.

    I will dive into the new info and options now ;-) thanks for your help.
