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.

    Awsome thanks Ackis!
  • #345
    Thanks a lot mate... I totally appreciate this :D
  • #373
    I failed at adding it, need to work out an issue.
  • #328
    i have a question, why are the skill level wrong on the receipes etc. i,m missing. For example in first aid it says silk bandage is level 90, but from trainer level 150. this is just 1 example
  • #335
    A lot of the profession skill numbers are wrong, with the latest version (1.0B7) it seems. My mining numbers are all off.
  • #336
    Yes all of them would have been off.

    I accidentally used the skill up levels instead of learnt at skill levels.

    That was fixed on an alpha build recently. The next beta will have all skill ups correct.

    Try as an interim if you'd like.
  • #322
    im having an issue with the Unknown Filter.. i uncheck it and it claims *Ackis Recipe List: No recipe to display.* and i uncheck the Faction Filter and it doesn't change any of the recipes in the list.
    just wondering if it's supose to be like that...
  • #323
    Which profession are you dealing with?
  • #324
    Blacksmithing - its showing all the unobtainable Plans and the ones i didn't get so far
  • #325
    Ok, the way filters work for unknown and known.

    Unknown = all unknown recipes
    Known = all known recipes

    One of those two must be checked in order for something to display.
  • #326
    ok the unknown and known works fine :-)

    but the issue im having is that there are some BS plans that are not Obtainable at all through out the game and they are showing up that i don't have them... Is there a way to eliminate them from the scan and not count them as a BS Plan that i don't have. My Thought of Unknown Filter was that the BS plans that are *unknown* anywhere in the game

    Example :
    [70] - Ironforge Chain
    [115] - Rough Bronze Bracers
    [140] - Ironforge Gauntlets

    [230] - Orcish War Leggings
    is only obtainable by Horde, so i take off the Faction filter for the scan and it still shows Horde BS plans in the scan
  • #327
    OK the faction filter should prevent the war leggings from showing up for you, and the rest I should remove them manually... can you please create a ticket for me.
  • #320
    Can't put my finger on it but it feels like the latest release (1.0B7) is acting up for me. Specifically, I had the filtering checked so that in theory it would show me only recipes I didn't already have, but there were several I KNEW I did have that were showing. Also, some of the checkboxes for filter options seemed to be on top of each other. Im going to try reinstalling from scratch and gathering more specifics before making a ticket though.
  • #321
    Replying to myself to say "My Bad".

    Apparently, my AkisRecipeList.lua saved variables file got corrupted on the toon in question. I deleted that, reinstalled the latest version and things are a lot smoother. However, for my enchanter, the ITEM list seems to have some overlapping checkboxes in Armor... shield and something else are on top of each other. Also, in weapon, staff, crossbos, and bos are uncheckable (don't really know if there are specific chants for those anyway) and fist is slightly misaligned, stomping on sword. Minor issues, but I thought I'd mention
  • #319
    Ackis Recipe List: Smelt Elementium 22967: is missing from the database.
