About Skillet

Skillet: A trade skill window replacement

Skillet is a replacement for the default tradeskill and craft UI, and is based on Advanced Trade Skill Window, by Slarti.

To help with Localization see:

  • Built-in queue for creating multiple, different items
  • User editable list of notes attached to reagents and crafted items.
  • Automatically buy reagents for queued recipes when visiting a vendor
  • Recipes can be filtered by name, whether or not you could level when creating the item, and whether or not you have the mats available.
  • If you can craft a reagent needed by a recipe, then clicking on that reagent will take you to its recipe (same features as Reverse Engineering.
  • Queued items are saved when you log out and are restored on log in
  • If the item to be crafted requires a minimum level to use, that level can be displayed along with the recipe (disabled by default)
  • The shopping list of items needed for all queued recipes for all alts can be displayed at banks, auction houses, or from the command line
  • Items needed for crafting queued items can be automatically retrieved from your bank or guild bank (by using the shopping list)
  • Sorting of recipes (name, difficulty, level, and quality of crafted item)
  • Complete or mostly complete localizations for deDE, esES, frFR, ruRU, koKR, zhCN, zhTW.
  • Tracking inventory on alternate characters
  • Item tooltips can be set to display the list of alternate characters that can craft the item.

    Get this error, only when Skillet is active. Will also be posting on Ion page:

  • #590

    In the latest version my blacksmithing char got 8 recipes that just show up as "unknown" with no further information.

    Not sure what that is about?

  • #589

    LibDialog-1.0 is missing in Libs folder

  • #596

    About libdialog missing, it's because Skillet is using libstub from other addons! (discovered from backtrace, and indeed those other libstub can't find libdialog which resides in skillet folder)

  • #587

    The button "Buy Regen" the merchant does not always appear.

    It appears after buying an item manually.

  • #586

    Hei there

    Since patch 5.0.4 i don't see the number which was next to every item, that described that i have or don't have a particular item.

    e.g: if i had 5x brillian queen garnet it appeared a light blue 5 next to brilliant queens garnet.

    What addon must i update or what must i do?

    Because so many addons are still broken I have left load out of date addons off.  For some reason skillet is still seen as out of date.

  • #582

    With respect, I submit the following:

    - 2.31 does not appear to have the correct TOC number (should be 50001).

    - Does it matter that the "## X-Curse-Packaged-Version:" line appears twice, each with a different number?

  • #581

    Hi, first, thanks for this wonderful addon! :3

    After patch I got this error when clicking on reagent that craftable by alt:
