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:
    - Profession modules are now responsible for allocating entity item_list and recipe acquire_data tables.
    - Added a helper function to get rid of duplicate location-handling code.
    - Some variable name changes for clarification.
    - Updated call to AddRecipe to use the new method.
    - Refactored AcquireType:AddEntity() to take a module and an entity as parameters: It is now the caller's responsibility to generate the entity.
    - Re-added a mining/smelting check with a comment on why it's needed.
    - Reworked addon:AddRecipe() to use module and recipe tables passed in from the profession module AddOns.
    - Added GAME_VERSION_NAMES to constants table for module access.
    - professionModule.version => professionModule.Version
    - Added module version checking. Modules with a non-matching version will be inoperable.
    - Updated MODULE_ERROR_FORMAT to clarify that the error is a missing or disabled profession module.
    - Removed comments which explained what TRADE_SKILL_SHOW and TRADE_SKILL_CLOSE accomplish...
    - Remove check for MINING_PROFESSION_NAME since PROFESSION_MODULE_NAMES handles it implicitly.
    - Add Murg Stonecrack

    Sorry, Ackis, i might be missing something, but there is nothing on my tooltips. Neither there are any known recipes for cooking (for example), neither there are any recipes yet to be learned...
  • #496
    Delete the entire ARL folder and do a fresh install, see if that fixes it for you please.
  • #502
    Well, Ackis, what more data would you require?
  • #498
    Yep, done that; and also setting files in WTF - still no tooltips. Also disabled any tooltip altereres, like Auctioneer. Nothing.
    Ruru version, something to do with language?
  • #507
    It could be something to do with the language.

    But I don't know why... I've just updated the ruRU locale file.

    Can you try just running ARL and nothing else?

    Also please make a ticket for this issue, it makes it a bit easier to deal with opposed to the threaded replies. :)
  • #482
    I have Problems with that Addon, it doesnßt work by my Professions. Only by Mining, First Aid. Whats Wrong? I have ne Newest version.
  • #487
    What profession won't work? What's the "newest" version?
  • #477
    I've changed the numbers in the recipe db where they were incorrect like in engineering for 'Aquadynamic Fish Attractor' being listed as 100 when it is 150, can i send you the updated files?
  • #480
    No. The files are datamined from wowdb.

    I need Curse to update their software for me to get the skill levels.
  • #483
    So, is it ok if i keep changing it for myself then? because it its annoying for me to see if it say i can learn something when i can't.
    Can i message you if you aren't to busy i am wondering what you meant by update their software?
  • #486
    Right now WoWDB gets the skill levels from parsing the .dbc files and not from in-game, which causes them to have inaccurate results.

    I've written them a patch for the Curse Profiler to get the skill levels from in-game, they just need to accept it, and to update their data service in wowdb to take that information in.

    And yes it's acceptable to use your own database and modify whatever you need in there. :) You just can't release it as your own, and that it may get over written if you auto-update.
  • #475
    I noticed that the 3 Cooking Quest recipes have disappeared
    Delicious Chocolate Cake
    Spicy Talbak
    Kibler's Bits

    Additionally, can't find the export feature any longer.
  • #481
    Will take a look see at this.
  • #491
    I verified last night they were still in, maybe you need to check filter settings?
  • #499
    I looked in the cook.lua and the following recipes were indeed there.

    Delicious Chocolate Cake
    Spicy Talbak
    Kibler's Bits

    However, there is no option that allows them to be displayed. I turned every option there is on including both known and unknown and still they do not show up
