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.

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

    This is a bug with WOW's database. He's working on it if you read down.
  • #1268
    Thank you for providing a really cool add on. I use it all the time and love it.

    I have used recipebook in addition to ARL because one of my favorite features in that one (and I THINK it was from recipebook - if you will look at it's error message below) was when you mouse over a mob that drops a recipe you need it shows the recipe in a tooltip. Am I correct in assuming that was this mod? Because the mouseover no longer shows the pattern I need off of a particular mob.

    Maybe this feature could be incorporated into ARL in the future - time permitting of course.

    The author Ayradyss (Contact: recipebook (at) has notified us that RL issues will be causing him to delay updating this mod for long periods of time and has invited other authors to take it over.

    It was the mouseover feature I truly loved about this mod and just in case someone is looking at this (recipebook mod) I will paste my error here:

    (not arl error)
    Date: 2010-11-06 10:59:15
    ID: 1
    Error occured in: Global
    Count: 1
    Message: [string "RecipeBookTooltip:OnLoad"] line 1:
    attempt to index global 'this' (a nil value)
    [C]: ?
    [string "*:OnLoad"]:1:
    [string "*:OnLoad"]:1

    I hope this isn't asking too much but it really be the cat's meow if you could add this feature!

    Here is the link to the mod:
  • #1276
    I added this to ARL last year...
  • #1265
    Thanks for great fix for Jewelcrafting.

    Bug report: still bugged
  • #1266
    Thanks :) It was a long and painful process ;p

    And I pushed another alpha to fix
  • #1263
    Armor and weapon vellum's were taken out and changed to Enchanting vellum. Noticed they were still showing up. Works great even if it is teasing that Glyph of Mage armor is not in the game correctly still =\
  • #1255
    Anychance that you could make this addon work with "Skillet"?
  • #1264
    Actually i have both and it works fine :)
  • #1256
    It does. The author of Skillet has to fix his addon to work with ARL if that's the case.
  • #1252
    I'm using the latest alpha build, and I'm having problems with Jewelcrafting scan list. Some recipes would appear twice, and some would still appear even if I already know the recipe. My other tradeskills (Blacksmith/Cooking) do not have such issue.
  • #1257
    Yup Yup, due to Blizzard being lazy "cleaning" up the Jewelcrafting database. I'm working on fixing it in ARL. It's a long and tedious process :).

    Recipe tooltips are not showing on mobs that drop them.
    This issue is in core.lua, in the OnTooltipSetUnit script.

    local GUID = tonumber(string.sub(guid, 8, 12), 16)
    No longer returns the proper id for the mob.
    Change the line to:
    GUID = tonumber(guid:sub(-12, -9), 16)
    and tooltips show up once again.
  • #1258
    Should be fixed in the latest alpha of ARL. Please test it out. Thanks.
  • #1249
    Hello agian,

    Still i see the "Armor Vellum's" (II and III) and the "Weapon Vellum" (I, II and III), but thus respice for Scripters are not availible anymore by trainers and not to learn anyway becouse both are replaced by "Enchanting Vellum". Can you please remove the other "Vellum's" from the list. Thanks in forward.
