About KevTool Queue

KevTool Queue allows you to automatically queue up items to be crafted, so that you don't have to manually add them to your crafting queue. When you regularly craft a large number of items for sale, this saves a great deal of time. KTQ works with either Skillet or GnomeWorks Tradeskill Frame, both of which incorporate crafting queues.

For each item you request (via a macro or the command line), you specify a quantity you'd like to have. KTQ will check your bags, your bank, and your auctions, add up the quantity of that item, and if that quantity is less than the number you've specified, will add the correct amount of that item to your queue.

See Kevmar's explanation, below, for more details.


Kevmar, the original author, has kindly allowed me to take over maintenance of KTQ. For WoW 5.3, I have made a few changes:

  • KTQ now works with either Skillet or GnomeWorks Tradeskill Frame.
  • KTQ will now correctly queue enchants.
  • A new shorter command allows fitting more commands into a single macro.

A thousand thank yous to Kevmar for his excellent work in developing this terrific addon!


From Kevmar: If you have tried to recreate some of the processes I do in my glyph factory I am sure you have ran into some of the same issues that I have. Building my queue of glyphs to make was one of the most repetitive and time consuming parts of the system. This mod made that step instant for me.

Kev Tool Queue (KTQ) will auto queue items that match a keyword into GnomeWorks Tradeskill Frame or Skillet. You tell it how many you want to have and it will check with Altoholic to see how many you already have. It will then only craft the ones you need. It also has optional support for Auctioneer to check prices and have it skip any item listed too low. You can use any keyword, but it has a few built in.

The beauty of this mod is its simplicity. It does have a few simple features that give it a lot of power. Here is a quick sample of the commands.

Open up your tradeskill window in either Skillet or GnomeWorks and for inscription type this command:


The syntax is like this:

/KTQ QUEUE [number to queue] [keyword to match]
/KTQ Q [number to queue] [keyword to match]

For more info:


Queue Details ===

The main command is:


Any item that partially matches that keyword will be added to the queue. I did start with 3 groups of items but later opened it up to any keyword search. The build in groups are GLYPHS, EPICGEMS, RAREGEMS. I know it's silly to have a group called glyphs when the word glyph will work as a keyword and get them all. I already had that group in place before the keyword thing so I left it.

Because it's a keyword match, it does a live check of your craft list. If you don’t know it, it does not try to queue it. If Blizzard adds something new, this should still work and pick up the new thing.

I do have other features built in to target the different ways people make glyphs. It can be set up to craft extra items when you run out. If you have 0 in stock, it can add 2 extra to the queue. It has a threshold feature that will allow it to check your recent Auctioneer scan and only craft items you find to be profitable. This works best with glyphs and gems where the mats for everything is basically a set cost.

It will also skip singles if you want. When I was making 14 at a time by hand, I would often just skip of the ones I needed to craft only one of. I craft them all now that its automated but it was an easy feature to add.

Samples ===

Like any command line mod, you can put commands in macros.

I have a group in place for gems. Several people manage the different colors differently. I would use a macro like this:

/ktq queue 5 solid sky sapphire
/ktq queue 2 forest emerald
/ktq queue 3 monarch topaz
/ktq queue 6 scarlet ruby

A shorter version would look like this:

/ktq q 5 solid sky sapphire
/ktq q 2 forest emerald
/ktq q 3 monarch topaz
/ktq q 6 scarlet ruby

You can do the same thing for other professions. For example:

/ktq queue 20 netherweave bag
/ktq queue 5 frostweave bag

Another feature KTQ provides is adding bonus items for those that sell out. Its a simple feature and here is another way to do that.

/ktq queue 3 glyphs
/ktq queue 14 glyphs

The above will queue up for items that you have less then 3 of and then it will do the same for a stack of 14. So the result is if something sells out, it will queue up 17 of them. If you have 1 it will queue up 15 for you.

    I've added a brief summary of what the addon does, and I've updated it for the 6.0.3 WoW client.

    After some very limited testing, it appears that KTQ works as before. However, it exposes a bug in LilSparky's Workshop, and unfortunately LSW has been abandoned.

    I'm considering my options at this point. I could remove the dependency requirement for LSW and see if KTQ still works. Or I could investigate the possibility of taking over LSW and/or cloning it, and maintaining it. Another option might be to take pricing data from another source, such as The Undermine Journal addon.

    Unfortunately, Gnomeworks Tradeskill Frame has also apparently been abandoned. It still works, but it needs updating (for example, it doesn't recognize the Reagents section of the bank). I haven't tried Skillet since the expansion because I've always strongly preferred Gnomeworks' simplicity/elegance and its automatic bank-snatch and vendor-buy features. I hate to give these up.

    Is there sufficient interest in continuing with KTQ to warrent further work?

  • #123

    I would love to see an update to this that does not require LSW. That addon is currently having so many errors. I still use KTQ regularly and love how easy it makes crafting in bulk. If there is any way to remove that dependancy it would be greatly appreciated!

  • #120

    I have no idea what this addon does. That may be part of why you onluy have 269 monthy downloads - there's no description for what the addon does, and there's no screenshots.

    I'm cleaning out my Saved Variable folder of any old addons, and that led me to look this addon to see if I need it. Seeing there's no description, I guess I don't need to keep it.

  • #121

    No problem. Thanks for using this addon once before. I left the game years ago and a few different people stepped up to maintain this after I was gone. The lack of screen shots is due to the fact that it is command line based that interacts with other mods. A video would have been a good idea.

    The thing about this mod is that it was a step in my crafting process. I perfected a crafting process that I learned from the gold making community. I released this mod to them and the community at large as a thank you. On it's own, this mod has little value until you realize how important its role it. The people that find this valuable came here looking for it after they read about it and my methods on various forums and blogs at the time. To some of those people and to myself, this mod was the most critical piece of my crafting process.

    Frankly, I am still surprised that it is still available. I hope it still runs. I expect my process is out dated. I love that people are still downloading it. My advice for anyone discovering this mod for the first time would be to go discover why you should use it first.

    Please add a screenshot above. =)

    It is June 2013 and I am still using this addon with Gnomeworks and LilSparky's Workshop in WoW 5.3, and it works fine. For Enchanting, I had to make this change:

    Open the lua file in notepath, ctrl+f for (scrollid), should highlight a line for you. Remove this bit: ["ScrollId"], should fix scrolls

    Thanks to Rolusr for posting this fix back in 2010. It works for me.

    Also, to use KTQ with Skillet, Jazradel says:

    Kev's latest version should still work with Skillet and ATSW. Just remove GnomeWorks from the Dependencies in the .toc file.

    I have tested this change and with it, KTQ does work with Skillet.

    Note that I am using the latest versions (for WoW 5.3) of LilSparky's Workshop and Skillet from Curse, and GnomeWorks from WowAce (which can be updated through the Curse client once it's downloaded from WowAce). In the Curse client I've chosen the Alpha versions of GW and LSW to make sure I have the latest version.

    This addon has saved me so much time doing crafting! I'm very grateful to Kevmar for creating it and to the above folks for posting the fixes.

    Update: Kevmar has allowed me to take over maintenance of KTQ. I have created a new release for WoW 5.3, incorporating the above changes.

    Thank you to Kevmar and Asa for their work on this great addon, and for trusting me to take it over!

    The author left WOW ... anyone knows a alternativ for KTQ?
    Or can make a fan-update?
  • #116
    Would it be at all possible to add support for Bank Items?

  • #115
    I get a problem that it won't queue anything. I'll make a new macro, and it will work once. Then nothing else will queue, not even by command line. The odd thing is that no error pops up, it just shows up in the chat window as skipped. Is this an issue with the addon, or can you point out what I'm doing wrong?
  • #114
    I cant get it to create a correct queue. I set my threshold but it always creates glyphs that are below the set threshold. any ideas?
  • #112
    it's work ok but when I reach skill lvl 75 it's not show me what i need 2 crate that i want to create. can someone tell me what i need 2 do or what's the problem it's with this addon?
  • #111
    KTQ currently isn't working for me, even though it's enabled. Anyone know when there will be an update?
  • #108
    Heya Kevmar,

    Currently I cannot get KTQ and Gnomeworks to work for enchanting. It works flawless for Inscription but I get this error when I try to queue enchant scrolls when using /ktq queue 2 39004 I have spoken to Lilsparky on his wowace project page for Gnomeworks but he cannot determine if it is KTQ or Gnomeworks (Not: I am using Altoholic, KTQ, Gnomeworks and Auctioneer all updated):

  • #109
    It is KTQ not working properly, because it wont work with Skillet either. So Kev needs to get in gear and fix the add on.
