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:

If your mod should be on this list, please submit a ticket.

Detailed Documentation

    not a problem, thanks for looking into it and following up! :)
  • #544
    Something is wrong with the cooking recipes.
    ARL says I'm at 142/149, but achievement says I'm at 152/160.
    I only miss a few recipes now (1 horde and 5-6 from the daily cooking), so the total count is probably around 152 like the achievement says.
  • #545
    Check your filter settings, check to see if you include filtered/ignored recipes in the scan.
  • #548
    Just checked it again. I don't have anything filtered out.
    ARL thinks there is only 149 recipes in game and that I only have 142 of those.
  • #550
    From the code:

    160 found from data mining.
    5 ignored.

    I have all the cooking recipes from original wow, and from BC (save thistle tea since I'm not a rogue) and nothing is popping up as missing.

    Try your class/faction filters to see if you're filtering by that.
  • #552
    Just checked again, and everything is included except for Thistle Tea.
    If I include that, ARL shows me on 142/150, where it should be 152/160.
    The missing recipes shown in the ARL window seems fine. Those 6 recipes shown there are actually the ones I don't have yet.
    No idea why the count is wrong.

    If there's anything I can check or send you, let me know.
  • #567
    I have the same issue. I found some recipes that don't show up ingame, but are noted in the lua file: Spicy hot Talbuk, Skullfish soup and broiled bloodfin. I Have all filters set to include, but it hangs at 150.
  • #568
    This issue should be fixed in the latest build, let me know if it's not. (ticket it please)
  • #537
    Sapphire Signet is listed as requiring Jewelcrafting 265 but the vendor has it as Jewelcrafting 275
  • #538
    Onslaught Ring, Sapphire Pendent of Winter Night, Glowing Thorium Band listed as Jewelcrafting 270 should be 280
    Emerald Lion Ring, Living Emerald Pendent listed as Jewelcrafting 280 should be 290
  • #543
    Will be fixed.
  • #536
    2 issues about Engineering :

    How does Class filter work? I mean I'm a mage and deactivating the filter I suppose to see only mages specific recipes in the list. Instead I don't see "Annihilator Holo Gogs" (Sunwell Plateau drop) and I see recipes for all classes learnable at Borean Tundra (ally) or Howling Fjord (horde) at skill lvl 400.

    When I activate the filter Annihilator Holo Gogs appear but together with all the other class specific recipes that drops in Sunwell Plateau.
    Nothing change for the above mentioned skill lvl 400 recipes.


    Mechano Hog don't disappear when I deactivate Horde Expedition reputation filter. Only way to make it disappear is to use faction filter, but I don't want to see only ally recipes.

    Hope my feedback will be helpful :)
  • #569
    The hog is fixed!
  • #542
    The goggles filter was a bug, will be fixed soon.

    Not sure what you mean about the 400 skill elvel ones, can you make a detailed ticket for me?

    The hog/chopper have the right faction added, but don't have the horde expidition/etc faction associated with it... can you ticket that as well for me?
  • #539
    In addition I noticed that all that skill lvl 400 googles recipes should be lvl 440 and learned at Dalaran Engineer trainer.
