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

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:

    - Changed location for existing vendors from NAGRAND to NAGRAND_OUTLAND
    - Differentiate between the two versions of Nagrand: Display "Nagrand (Outland)" and "Nagrand (Draenor)"
    - Another search fix.
    - Whitespace.

    I have the latest version, but the add-on seems insistent about certain recipes that vendors no longer sell, e.g., engineering goggles at 440 skill level that have been removed from the game.
  • #1136
    Can you tell me which recipes specifically got removed?
  • #1130
    I have noticed that some recipes (although listed on the recipes tab) do not list on the location or aquisition tabs. for leatherworking (mount hyjal/black temple/serpentshrine cavern/the eye/ulduar and various drops in 5 man instances for some). Looking at engineering/jewelcrafting/alchemy and tailoring seems to also have some things missing on the aquisition and location tabs but they are showing in teh recipes tab.
  • #1131
    As always first check your filters.......but... could you be more specific...give me some recipes involved in this
  • #1141
    nevermind, re-installing the add-on/rebooting pc fixed it (not sure which). They are now showing in the locations and aquisition tabs.
  • #1122
    Just wanted to add a correction. I saw on the list that Glyph of Raise Dead is learned from Northrend Inscription Research, but I heard it is a minor glyph. So it should say learned by Minor Inscription Research, right?
  • #1124
  • #1116
    I just recently updated to the new 2.0... but the problem i've noticed is that some of the recipes don't seem to be in there. and the search function is extremely slow.
    For example, looking at inscription, i searched for glyph of felguard to see what level i learn can learn it at and how it's learned. as i type "fe", the game freezes for a second, then continues on to do put in "lg" but there are no results. I decided to look manually for it... and then realized that there are no glyphs at all in the scan. zero.
    I really don't know lua, but just checked a little bit... Seems to be in the code... Inscription.lua has,
    -- Glyph of Felguard -- 57263
    AddRecipe(57263, 385, 42459, Q.COMMON, V.WOTLK, 385, 390, 397, 405)
    self:AddRecipeFlags(57263, F.ALLIANCE, F.HORDE, F.DISC, F.WARLOCK, F.IBOE, F.RBOP, F.CASTER)
    self:AddRecipeAcquire(57263, A.CUSTOM, 15)
    along with other glyphs... but they just aren't showing up ingame. I'm not sure about other recipes
  • #1118
    Go to the general filters and turn on all of the classes.

    As for the search being "slow", the issue there is that it's using several different criteria - if one does not match, it tries another. If you'd had the class filters on you wouldn't see this behavior.
  • #1113
    Something broke in 2.0

    Just updated to 2.0 and the scan button does nothing! No popup window showing my recipes on any toon and I cannot get the list window to come up?
  • #1126
    I thought this was happening to me, then I realised the scan frame was behind the tradeskill frame - moved the frame and there it was! Using Advanced Trade Skill Window, which is possibly using a higher frame level than the default frame?
  • #1114
    oops - not ALL toons, but some.
  • #1115
    Do you get an error message at all? Do these toons have tradeskills?
  • #1111
    Love the addon, absolutely brilliant. However, there is one function I would love to see.

    I am a Gnomish Engineer, and intend to stay Gnomish, (Unless Cata changes things up that dramatically), and am also a recipe whore... So when I scan my engineering to find out what recipes I'm still missing, I find it annoying seeing that I have 87% of engineering recipes, then when I'm looking through the ones I have left to collect, half of them are Goblin Engineering recipes only.

    I was wondering if you could implement a new filter to filter out the different specialisations of each profession. I'm not sure if it would matter for other professions (because idk if other professions have spec-specific recipes or not), but if it did, I'm sure they'd love some loving too :P

    Just that it would give me a proper percentage of how many recipes I have, out of the ones I can actually obtain, rather than all engineering recipes.

    Thanks for the great addon, and would love to see this feature implemented some time in the near future :)
  • #1112
    As always make sure you have the latest version, which is ARL 2.0 right now.

    There is a filter for that :)....

    Click the arrow to expand the panel to show the filter options, and make sure you select the 'general' one which is the first icon. You will see "specialties"... the tooltip says "Include recipes for un-trained specializations"..So check it to see untrained specialization recipes or uncheck it to not include those recipes that you do not care about.

    If you notice that some recipes are showing up marked with the wrong specialization, please file a ticket on the project page on wowace showing which recipes are involved.
