About CraftyGnome


Are you tired of that tradeskill whisper thingamajig addon that takes up 50mb of memory and doesn't even do its job very well? You're not alone. I wanted something that let others whisper me !skill and some keywords, and send a list of my known recipes back. Luckily, while I was on a expedition to find a cure for bad hairdays, I stumbled upon one of natures great miracles.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you, all the way from the jungles of Zipadeedoodah; the one and only:


These gnomes have been living separated from the rest of the world deep within the dangerous jungle. Surrounded by vicious predators that would hunt them at every opportunity, they developed their own little system for transmitting known recipes for all kinds of stuff by molding swarms of drugged bees into different shapes and launching them right across the jungle to the receiving tribe via catapult.

Accurate and precise.

Now this knowledge has found its way to me, and I am on a quest to enlighten the world and rid us of encumbered and ancient delivery mechanisms for information.

Please join me in the quest, download your very own CraftyGnome today!


Simply install it, open your tradeskill frames and whisper yourself !cg or !craft to see the available commands.

!help, !cg, !craft, !gem, !enchant, !cook, !blacksmith, !leather, !tailor, + lots of other aliases.

    It might be half the side of CraftList2, but completely unusable for me. :(

    Querying for gems returns a huge result set that can't really be filtered. Until it responds to things like epic/rare/uncommon (and hopefully even by min item level), I'm still stuck searching for a replacement to CL2.

    I don't see it, but was wondering if this works with multiple accounts? I need one like this or like ProffesionBook that works with multiple accounts without having to copy the .lua over manually.
  • #17
    I doubt that you will find an addon that can do that with LUA, the saved variables file for each account goes into a seperate folder that is the same as the account name it is tied to, because of this there is really no way for an addon to share the information across multiple accounts without copying the saved variables manually. If there is I certianly haven't found it as there are several addons that I would like to use that type of thing on.

    I used to use craftlist2 but switched to this recently cause the guy who made it seems to have stopped updating. I was wondering if theres a way for me to send people a whisper with with certain recepies like i could with craftlist ie: send them a list of all my +ap gems
  • #14

    WowAce won't let me report this error, so I'm doing it here.

    My whisper problems in chat are caused by this mod.

    r60 definitely does not work with Chatter r233, after error makes whispers disappear
  • #10
    Crafty, conflicts with prat and possibly chatter too, atleast once i disabled crafty i was able to see my incoming / outgoing whispers again.

    "It requires less character to discover the faults of others than is does to tolerate them"

  • #9
    I can't wait to see what comes of this, in regards to your sounds awesome! Either way, I know this is going to help a lot ^_^
  • #8
    Well! Unlike most descriptions, yours actually *almost* says what the addon does. How about less story and more description, please.
  • #7
    Nice, quick mod. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to differentiate between characters. I have multiple characters on the same server and some professions are duplicated. When queried CraftyGnome only shows the results from the last character logged on with that profession rather than both (the prefered option) or even just the highest.

    I also can't add notes to any recipes I know unless I do so from the profession link that is whispered back to me. I suspect this is a clash with Skillet which produces it's own profession window. This doesn't bother me as I probably wouldn't add any notes anyway but I thought you'd like to know.
  • #6
    Possible to only show WOTLK gems/enchant/stuff?
  • #5
    Same. And the updated version won't let me click on my professions at all, from the spell screen or from hotbars.
  • #4
    Its not a localization problem either - after resetting WTF to default, as well as disabling all other mods, the mod only outputs:

    When I run a search of:
    !gem blue

    cg: No results found for "blue"

    The results should be all blue socket gems.
