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.

    Hi there, love the addon and just wanted to say that a few of the recipes seem to be out of date to recent changes (not sure if they are changes to the last patch or not).  There are recipes that ARL indicates as being obtained from Xyrol in Area 52 but wowhead states (at least some) they are now drops in sunwell.  Cheers

  • #1680

    This addon could use some vendor location updates. Here is one:

    Nessa Shadowsong: Teldrassil 53.9,90.0

    In this case, old position is under water. I'm sure there is other vendors who walked to safe locations during the cataclysm. What way is the best way to give input about this? Do the addon get it's information from another outdatet addon?

    Hi there!

    I'm looking for help in figuring out which addon provided a certain functionality in regards to recipes.  For the life of me, I don't know which addon it was, but I suspect it was either Ackis or Auctioneer, but I can't find any info on it.

    If I was on a toon looking at recipes in the AH, the tooltip used to provide information on whether any of my other toons needed that recipe (if they had the appropriate profession).  I think the recipe icon would be given a green color as well if any of my other toons needed it.

    For example, my pally is a herbalist and alchemist.  My mage is an enchanter and tailor.  If my pally was looking in the AH and saw the recipe for Enchant Weapon - Crusader and my mage didn't have it, the recipe icon (looks like a scroll) would be colored green and the tooltip would have a note indicating that my mage needed it.

    Anyways, I had to rebuild my computer and I don't have this functionality anymore, so I'm trying to figure out which addon provided it.

    Any thoughts?


    P.S.  This is one of my favorite addons.  For anyone who is a completionist, this is a must have!!

  • #1675

    Am new to this.I have used this for some time. I made a Engineer {gnomeish} an have a question. Is there a way to not have all the Goblin recipies show up when I do a scan?

  • #1676

    Yup, uncheck the "specialties" filter.

  • #1674

    Here's something new. Tried to do a sort of my Enchanting recipes for hands and it completely locked up my WoW 3 times.

  • #1673

    The way things are going translations into Portuguese, ends next year ...=/

  • #1677

    There are a lot of phrases to translate.  There's one guy who's translated over 300 phrases so far.  You can translate phrases if you want as well.
