About 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.


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.

    On my AddOns menu, it lists TradeSkillInfo as out of date even as it lists TradeSkillInfo itself as up to date.  This causes the game to constantly remind me I'm running an out of date addon.

    Any way to delete info for certains chars? I had some showing up in the tooltip even though those chars were long gone.

    All I could do was to delete the entire SavedVariables file.

  • #437

    Not yet but I will finally be able to add this feature once the new SavedVariables layout is finished. The current layout was much too complicated for it to work.

    Sounds good. Looking forward to the new version :)

  • #435

    Just so everyone's aware, future updates will reset TSI's saved settings including character recipe data.

    Alpha packages r668 and onwards will contain an overhauled and hopefully more efficient recipe database. Because of this change, a saved settings wipe will be needed to ensure everything is clean and problem free. I cannot convert settings saved in TSI v2.2.16 or older to the new layout, nor can I make the new database backwards-compatible.

    I apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

  • #434

    It will. :)

    EDIT: v2.2.16 has been uploaded and is no longer marked as "out of date" in WoW's addon list.

    Information about Strider Meat is wrong.

  • #430

    How so?

    I am working on a complete recipe database overhaul so hopefully any wrong information will be corrected by this. :)

    I'm leveling up engineering, currently at 264 and specialized in gnomish (like most people). If I click on a goblin schematic in the browser window, it says that it is learnable by me. Is there any way to have it distinguish between gnomish and goblin? I obviously can't learn goblin schematics. I looked through a few pages of the comments and didn't see anyone mention this. I've also looked through the options and don't see it there either. I'm probably overlooking something.

  • #426

    I'll have a look on my Engineer later on when I get home from work. There is code in place to discern between Gnomish and Goblin, but it may have gone wrong with recent patches.

    The database will be getting a massive overhaul soon anyway so I'll get around to fixing bugs in the process (or cause more, probably both).

    When I search for "Haunting Spirit", either via ctrl-right clicking on one, or by typing the name into the search box, the addon only shows Leatherworking recipes. But according to Wowhead, Haunting spirit is reagent for Tailoring and Blacksmithing too:

    Everything is enabled in the dropdown boxes Tradeskills and Availability. What am I missing? 

    EDIT: OK, just saw the info in the description: "Some Blacksmithing and Tailoring recipes added in with Patch 5.2 have not yet been added to the database."
