Known Issues

  • When gaining a reputation level recipes for that faction will still appear in red when doing a scan.

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


  • Ideas for the mod came from FGTradeLacker (original mod no longer updated, however someone has taken over updating the recipes for it).
  • Ace community for listening to my questions on the IRC channel and helping me out, and fellow mod authors for developing such great add-ons.
  • 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:
    - Finally got around to implementing ticket #996 after roughly three years and ten months.
    - Moved the "Display Exclusions" and "Skill" checkboxes.
    - Changed AddAllWaypoints to insert the recipe object into the WAYPOINT_ENTITIES table, rather than its spell id.
    - Made another reversion to DisplayAcquireData() - GnomeWorks expected the recipe to be a spell ID.
    - Added SpellID Recipe method.
    - Moved some things around.
    - Cleanups and clarifications.
    - Hrm - recipe.spell_id was inexplicably replaced with in a few places. This has been rectified, which also fixes ticket #1605
    - Replaced private.acquire_list with a table on the AcquireTypes themselves, supported by the AssignRecipe, GetRecipe, GetSortedRecipes, and RecipePairs methods.
    - Cleanup of Sort_Acquisition(), and changed it to use the actual AcquireTypes.
    - Cleaned up private.SortRecipeList() and added the sorted list as a return value.
    - Make sure the AcquireType isn't nil before attempting to get its ID.
    - AcquireType:Entities()=>AcquireType:EntityPairs()
    - I overzealously changed a parameter type for DisplayAcquireData, forgetting that it was used as an API for other AddOns (GnomeWorks). Whoops. Reverted.

    Thanks again....I am getting an error though, with the latest version from the link you just provided. When I enable ARL, the new gui will appear (which looks much nicer btw) but I am unable to scan any of my professions, so the ARL window (gui) remains is the error...Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have been trying that out, looks sweet, but I can't get it to scan the recipes...
  • #196
    Sweet this makes my job of lvling my alch much easier on good recipes :) :P :)
  • #195
    You relize that you have it as version .9732 here but in the .toc its ## Version: 0.9372

  • #194
    Not sure, can you make a ticket about it please? Thanks. :)
  • #192
    I just downloaded the lastest version and it didn't seem to work at all with ATSW as compared to the previous ones where a nice button popped up in ATSWs frame. Any reason for this change or is it a bug? I reverted to an older, working version.
  • #190
    I think I have it set to package as ARL yes... is it causing issues?
  • #193
    ARL wasn't visible in the addons menu.
    changing the .toc filename to : arl.toc fixed it.
  • #191
    I didn't try it. I hesitated until I could find out if it was right. I'll try it tonight.

    Do you think you might want to add a note so people using the older versions know that they have to delete the AckisRecipeList folder when updating to .9731? I should think having both could cause a problem.
  • #189
    Is the AddOn folder name supposed to be different now? .9731 is named "ARL", whereas previous versions were named "AckisRecipeList".
  • #188
    I'm looking into filtering/sorting by location, however it isn't super easy.

    The linking will come with the new version that's being worked on.
  • #187
    I think that this is one of the Best Mods, not sure this is the place to make a request, but I would like to see a way to filter / view the receipes or Talents what not, based on the location I am in. In another Case, All Things that can be gotten in Durotar for example. The info Seems to be there, but can't sort or view specifically the ones I am able to get based on zone.
  • #186
    Hi, great addon, i wonder if there is a posibility to link a recepie u are missing in a chatt ? I can see the recepies I am missing but i cant link a recepie i am missing, i tried with shift click and everything.
  • #185
    Aarnn: I added a ticket to improve that, however the wiki page does have detailed instructions.
  • #178

    my scan button dissapred and i cant seem to get it back.
