    I get this error whenever I click an ink in the create glyph window or any precrafted reagent in other proffessions so I can see the mats needed(pigments, etc) for that particular recipe.

  • #694

    I like your addon but it doesnt process multiple different recipies that i queue? Each time it hits a new kind in the queue it stops crafting? Is there a "process all" function? gets really annoying when im multitasking and i have to hit the button every time for my queue to continue onto the next set. what is the point in a queue if you sitl have to manually start it each and every changed recipe? Using current version. ty

  • #699

    This is a Blizzard limitation.  You can't queue up 5 different recipes and click 'Go' to have them all complete. No addon does this because Blizzard doesn't allow it. You have to click 'Go' on each different task.

  • #696

     I believe that this is a limitation that Blizzard put on crafting to cut down on people bott'ing crafting goods. 

  • #695

    As far as I know, Blizzard won't actually LET addons do that.  You have to click a button for each new type of item being crafted.

  • #693

    Same problem as others. I am using the newest version 2.43(as is my wife), and we both have the issue of randomized recipes showing up. Sometimes it works fine, other times when i open a skill tab, i have a random number of recipes showing or no recipes at all. Only having the problem with 'crafting' skills though.

  • #692

    Ever since the latest patch I've had to disable this addon, everytime I try and port somewhere on my mage the game locks up, or if I just try and take a portal anywhere on any other toon same happens, Using the latest version. Any suggestions? I'm really missing this addon to.

  • #690

    Skillet has been messing up more and more often for me since 5.2. Lots of times I'll open a profession window and either it simply doesn't open, or it'll show a blank recipe list or it'll show a random selection of recipes that I cant sort through. Opening a profession window during combat almost always results in a bugged recipe list.

  • #691

    Which Skillet version? Only the latest should work fine and it was released not so long ago.

  • #689

    I don't know which version of Skillet you have used, but as you might read here we had some serius issues after patch 5.2 and it was caused by an undocumented change (bug) in one of the Wow functions. Unfortunatelly even the initial workaround was not perfect - it was working sometimes, and sometimes not. You must know, that there is no real documentation for the wow API and every patch is
    a lottery. If Blizzard introduces a bug, many of the addons suffer. It happened after 5.0 (problems with Glyph frame) and it happened now.
    Skillet itself also has some bugs (grouping features need some love), but main functionalities used by most of the people should work stable.

  • #687

    I downloaded this as an alternative for ATSW a couple of nights ago and that's all it's done is glitch. It lags when I try to open my professions, now and again it just won't open at all and tonight when I click tailoring, it opens inscription. 6 times out of 10 it refuses to load any of the items I can make.  When it does load the items sometimes I can't click on them or filtering doesn't work.

    I do like what the author is trying to do with this mod. I like how it skips things when you don't have the ingredients instead of stopping dead. It just needs an awful lot more work. I look forward to seeing it further on in it's development when some of the bugs have been fixed.

  • #685

    Im never using this one again.  Downloaded it earlier, installed it (clean install mind you, I had no settings left behind or whatever, I use the Curse Client to keep that stuff clean), then I started a new priest alt, went and learned his professions, bought ingredients to level up cooking first.  In trying to make Spice Bread, this addon did NOTHING.  All I could do was queue the bread.  Create, Create All, Process, etc. did absolutely nothing.  The way I see it, and correct me if Im wrong, a trade skills addon should be able to ASSIST you with your trade skills, am I right?

    I fixed the problem by logging out of the game, launching Curse Client, and deleting this garbage from my game.  Here's to better results for other people, Im sure this has to work for someone.  I just know it isnt me.

    All I want is a simple trade skills addon that is doublewide (WTF is Blizzard thinking by not expanding their frame by now), and one that helps me queue up items.  That's it.  I dont need any other functions.  I dont need it to buy mats for me, I dont need it to estimate disenchantment results, I just need a bigger interface than the native, and one whose CREATE buttons WORK.


  • #686


    Quick question - Did you use the latest version? (I have 2.4.3 installed here, the one Curse Client gave me). It might have been the client giving you the older version still (Curse takes its time making sure the very latest version is the one the client installs)

    The latest fix has cured the issues for me. Thanks for the code update!!

    Re: Skillet 2.42 and Crafted Dreadful names

    The names for the discovered gear items (like LW's Crafted Dreadful Gladiator's Mail, Leather, etc.) are so long they cover each other and it's pretty hard to use like that.  I realize it's not your fault - it's Blizzard's for making such long names.  But if you could work out a way to improve the display for those, it would certainly be a help.

    And that's my only complaint - I'm not having any of the issues others have listed below, Skillet 2.42 is working perfectly for me.  Thanks for this great addon!
