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.

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.

James D. Callahan III:
    - LibAboutPanel; my nemesis!
    - Added "reputation" as an option to the "dump empties" command.
    - When assigning a recipe to a reputation vendor, assign it to the reputation as well.
    - Changed "private.private" to "private" - FTW.

    Ackis...Thanks, as always, for keeping this fantastic addon going! Couple of things with the latest Beta release. (1.0B7)...I just d/l the newest Beta (7), however, it is still identified as Beta 6 in the Addon options menu on log-in menu, as well as the "About" section in ARL's menu. Also, while I was able to scan my professions by using slash commands to open ARL's menu, the actual "scan" button on Tradeskill window was not operating at all, both before and after I scanned my recipes. (Also, some of my 1st Aid recipe lvl. requirements are still incorrect, but you had mentioned it was an issue with WoWDB, so I realize there's not a whole lot you can do about that) Thanks again very much for all your effort and hard work. It certainly shows in the quality of this mod.
  • #302
    Hmmm what do you mean about the scan button not working? It works for me (during testing). Is there an error or anything?
  • #304
    Disregard the scan button issue....I use ARL w/ Skillet, and it was that addon causing the issue, not ARL. After rebooting WoW, the scan button worked fine, though it was still showing up as Beta version 6, if that makes any difference. Thanks again.
  • #300
    This addon keeps getting better and better. Not too long ago, you appear to have done a major revamp of the UI, and WOW, I like it.

    Thank you for all the hard work.
  • #299
    Beta 7 released.

    If you're getting those issues about CraftIsPetTraining, you are not running the latest version. Please get the latest beta of 1.0 which is Beta 7.

    Same problems here with ATSW and I just started using both.

    Got another problem with ARL.
    It says that there is an Inscription recipe it doesn't know and then the game freeze for 20 sec or so. After that I just see an empty ARL window with strange text at the bottom.
  • #297
    I use ATSW and it works fine. My problem is the skill levels listed are not correct. The recipe window says I can learn a recipe but when I go to the trainer I need a higher level. Does WotLK change skill levels?
  • #295
    This is the third or fourth error with ATSW, let me do some more investigation. The only thing I can suggest is to do a full reinstall of the addon.
  • #296
    hi ackis

    some bugs:
    I have every cooking recipe, and I think because of that, it keeps bugging out and telling me that I have not scanned my recipes, but I have and I kept doing it and it keeps saying I have to scan the recipe's, it works fine for alchemy though.

    inscription doesn't seem to be working at all, just spews out errors when I try and open the inscription recipe window.
  • #294
    I've downloaded the most recent version and I also am having problems. I have no scan button showing like I used to and it tells me that no recipes exist and to tell the author. I use it with advanced trade skill window and have never had a problem until this most recent patch. I love the addon. I even went back and tried an older version and it didn't work either.

    Thank you.

    Yes there's an option for text dump... I haven't really played with it in a while so it may be broken/ugly but it's something that will be reviewed before the end of this beta.
  • #285
    I can't make a focus target. It says Ackis Recipe List caused an error, and I can choose to Disable or Ignore :/
  • #291
    Can you make a ticket and provide the entire error message? I don't know why ARL would be interfering with a focus target at all, but I'd have to investigate.
