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

  • When gaining a reputation level recipes for that faction will still appear in red when doing a scan.
  • Recipe acquire information is slightly inaccurate. We are updating recipes daily as information is identified. If you find something inaccurate or wrong, submit a ticket here and we will get it updated.

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.

Bug Reports

Please use the WoW Ace tracker to file bug reports. Posting bugs in the comments is not the place to do it.

Feature Request

Please use the WoW Ace tracker to add suggestions and feature requests. Not all suggestions will be accepted: there are many people who use this addon, each with separate views. We will, however, try to make it as user friendly as possible...but when a decision is made please accept it.


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).

  • 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.

James D. Callahan III:
    - Don't remove class flags from recipes if the scanner doesn't find a class in the tooltip; this is no longer reliable, and it's warned about in the output so action can be taken if necessary.
    - Cleanup I'd been meaning to do for awhile now; converted a YUGE if/elseif chain into a table lookup.

    Is there somewhere I can get the old ackis? The new interface is overkill, I like the old one much more.
  • #529
    The old interface didn't allow you to easily change filters/etc... that's the biggest improvement to the new interface, plus the addition that it looks a lot better. The old version doesn't work anymore.
  • #525
    I also liked the simplicity of the old one with the transparent backing.

    I get this bug-report after login.

    The sorting function seems to error / not work properly... like if I try to sort it so I only see vendored recipes it doesnt seem to sort them and an error comes up but I forgot to note it down. I'll see if I can grab it the next ime I log in unless this happens to be soemthing your already aware of and if so then great.
  • #514
    I'll need the error.

    Right now sorting is by name, skill level, acquisition method, and location.

    You may mean the filters?

    When i scan my Inscription, ARL says i only have 2 minor glyphs left to learn. That was about 15 minor glyphs ago. I rescan and it says i still need to learn the same 2 & i keep learning ones that arent on the list.
  • #513
    I've had a few reports about inscription, but nothing that I've been able to verify.

    Are you getting any error messages at all?
  • #518
    I'm an inscriber and I noticed the same error. For what I see, your scan function displays only glyphs that correspond to the class of the inscriber, i.e., I'm a druid and I can only see the druid glyphs that I don't know yet but none of others classes.
    Hope I was useful to you ;p

    PS: sorry if there are some mistakes, English is not my mother language ^^"
  • #521
    I didn't notice that... can you make a ticket please?

    I'll have to level up my inscriber a bit to test this out, but please make a ticket.

    Tailoring: Duskweave Boots 55924: is missing from the database
  • #512
    Hmm that pattern comes up twice.

    Can you:
    1) Make a ticket
    2) See if you have Duskweave boots marked as "missing" from your recipe list.

    Those are the two spells, which is why there's an issue.
  • #503
    Just a note for you Ackis for 1 item (leatherworking).

    Leatherworking - Fur Lining - Arcane Resistance
    Drops from the Frostbrood Spawns at Sindragosa's Fall in Icecrown (73,42 area)

    I did a search on there was a couple of comments on wowhead, after killing quite a few i finally just got the drop myself (killed around 45-50(ish) with about 6-8 being unlootable (stupid things fell on the cliff face i couldnt loot). I wasnt goign to post until i had the drop myself.
    I don't know were the pattern-Bracers of Deflection drops and no ammount of search brings that up at all.
