About TradeSkillInfo

TradeSkillInfo

What it does

TradeSkillInfo is an add-on that gives you all the information that you need about tradeskills, including the ones that your character cannot craft.

It can add the following information to the tooltip of an item:

  • What tradeskills it is used in, and how many different recipes for that tradeskill it is used in.
  • Which of your characters can use the item.
  • Where the item comes from: bought from a vendor, dropped, disenchanted or crafted.

It can add the following information to the tooltip for recipes and crafted items:

  • If any of your characters knows the recipe.
  • If any of your characters are able to learn the recipe.
  • If any of your characters will be able to learn the recipe in the future.
  • Where the recipe comes from: bought from a vendor, quest reward, dropped or crafted.

In the tradeskill craft window it will show:

  • The cost of the combine (auctioneer or vendor prices), how much the result sells for to a vendor and the profit/loss.
  • At what skill levels the recipe will change to a different difficulty level.
    For example, "40/60/80/120" means the recipe is learnable at skill level 40, will turn yellow at 60, green at 80 and grey at 120.

TradeSkillInfo also has it's own Browser module which is installed as a separate load-on-demand add-on. It is opened by typing "/tsi" or by binding a key in the keybindings interface.

  • QuickSearch an item in the inventory will open the Browser and show all recipes that use that item.
    QuickSearch key-mouse combination is configurable. The default is control rightclick.

  • Right-clicking a reagent icon in the Browser while visiting an auction house will perform a search for that reagent.

  • Shift-clicking on the recipe name in the list will paste the recipe link into an open chat editbox.

In the Browser you can browse all tradeskill recipes in the game.

  • Freetext search on recipe name and reagent names.
  • Expand or collapse which tradeskills to show.
  • Filter which recipes to show:
    • If your current character knows the recipe.
    • If your current character can learn the recipe now.
    • If your current character will be able to learn the recipe later.
    • If one of your other characters knows the recipe.
    • If one of your other characters can learn the recipe now.
    • If one of your other characters will be able to learn the recipe later.
    • If it is not known by any of your characters.

Recipe names are colour coded in the Browser.

  • White: Current character knows the recipe.
  • Light Green: Current character can learn the recipe now.
  • Yellow: Current character will be able to learn the recipe later.
  • Grey: One of your other characters knows the recipe.
  • Dark Green: One of your other characters can learn the recipe now.
  • Orange: One of your other characters will be able to learn the recipe later.
  • Red: Not known by any of your characters.

For items not yet cached by your WoW client, the icon will be a red question mark and clicking on it will try and to request item data from the server.

What it does not do

TradeSkillInfo is purely an informational tool and will not assist you in crafting items.

Configuration

A graphical configuration window can be opened by typing "/tsi config", right-clicking on the provided "data broker" object or by binding a key in the keybindings interface.

Almost everything can be turned on or off according to your needs and preferences.

Known issues

  • Some Blacksmithing and Tailoring recipes added in with Patch 5.2 have not yet been added to the database.
  • A couple of Jewelcrafting and Inscription recipes may appear more than once in the Browser module. This is due to how Blizzard recycles crafting "spells".
  • Enchanting scroll data is incomplete.

    Seeing the following error when I try to use the enchanting NPC in the garrison for the weapon enchant transmogrification:

    Interface\\AddOns\\TradeSkillInfo\\TradeskillInfo-v2.3.lua:395: bad argument #1 to 'strfind' (string expected, got nil)

  • #458

    Should be fixed in v2.3.1 when it gets approved here. Sorry about that!

    I'm suspecting TSI for doing something nasty with the tooltip. I'm getting some lagspikes while questing and my tooltip sometimes disappear. I'm seeing the errors below (using new version):

    TSI doesn't do "something nasty" to tooltips, it only adds extra lines with information about a tradeskill.

    "Script ran too long" errors are Blizzard's way of saying you have too many addons running while in combat. I will a safety check and will stop TSI from doing this. I can't promise this will solve your lag spikes though.

    Glyph of the Sha (priest) doesn't seem to be recognized by TSI for some reason. I'm not seeing any "Could be learned" tooltip on that one glyph.

  • #451

    Wierd. o_O

    Which version are you using?


    Twitter | Blog
  • #453

    Hm... the 2.2.x line of updates were maintained by hand so it's very likely it was missing some data, or had some incorrect data.

    The 2.3.x line of updates uses automated dataming scripts and a different data layout which should fix most of the problems in 2.2.x. Tooltip information for Glyph of the Sha seemed to work fine for me during the testing phase so hopefully v2.3 will solve your issue.

  • #452

    I'm using the latest release version (2.2.18), but Glyph of the Sha is not the only glyph that seems bugged.

    The other day I made glyphs for all my chars (covers all classes) and I came across around 10 glyphs that did not have any "Could be learned/Already known" tooltip.

    Just so everyone's aware, v2.2.18 will be the last stable release before a big database overhaul.

    TradeSkillInfo's saved settings WILL BE RESET as of r688-alpha and onwards

    I have been planning this for months and with Warlords of Draenor officially launching on November 13th, now is the time to put this plan into action.

    I apologise for the inconvenience this will no doubt cause, but there is no other way possible for this to work.

    When I open the main window TSI posts following errors in the main chat window - any way I or you can fix that?

    TradeSkillInfo:ERROR:Could not find 5997

    TradeSkillInfo:ERROR:Could not find 2454

    TradeSkillInfo:ERROR:Could not find 3382

    TradeSkillInfo:ERROR:Could not find 4596

    TradeSkillInfo:ERROR:Could not find 5631

  • #448

    Those were some debug messages I added in to find recipes that had been removed in Patch 6.0.2. I believe I've found everything now, and I'll remove the debug in the next alpha package.

    No worries. :)

    I'll tag a new release package soon!
