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:

  • Which tradeskills the item 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.

It can colour-code recipes sold at merchants and on the Auction House.

  • White: Current character can learn the recipe now.
  • Orange: Current character will be able to learn the recipe later.
  • Green: One of your other characters can learn the recipe now.
  • Light Blue: One of your other characters will be able to learn the recipe later.
  • Red: Current character knows the recipe.

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 its 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 setting is shift-right-click.

  • 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.

What it does not do

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

Configuration

A 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.

    Would it be possible to use the Tradeskillmaster AuctionDB for the shown price?

  • #392

    I don't see why not! :|a

    I'll look into it, but I won't be able to push out any updates for a few days as me and my girlfriend are going on holiday over Easter. :)

    Hope your holidays went great and we can have some solid updates for 5.3, including previous suggestions! :D Love the addon and hope it goes on for a long time!

  • #390

    Can't seem to find, how to filter out recipes, that were never implemented on live. Particulatly Blacksmithing polluted by these things to complete unreadability.

  • #393

    Let me know what they are when you see them and I'll remove or fix them.

    I don't have any high-level Blacksmith characters at the moment.

    Is it easier to enable the user to remove recipes they don't want to see? That sounds always great to have, then in the future you may look into all those recipes that were never included and remove them by default too, but for now giving the user that option sounds great!

  • #389

    A pair last versions have new structure -  folder TradeSkillInfoUI now exist inside folder TradeSkillInfo - not both like early and now when i push bind key in WoW for acccess to interactive menu in chat appears text - not find

    Was:

    TradeSkillInfo

    TradeSkillInfoUI

    Now:

    TradeSkillInfo > TradeSkillInfoUI.

    Is it mean i must replace it manually each time like it was some time ago? Or may be now new way for call of menu. Plz explain how i can see window :(

    It was a typo in my packaging script. Sorry about that!

    Thanks for updating this addon, I know it's a ton of work.

    Nothing does what TradeSkillInfo does.  Each time it looks abandoned, I search in vain for a replacement.   I am addicted to pulling up full crafting details of each drop.

  • #387

    Thanks for the update, been using for years myself

  • #386

    Battle pet cages in your inventory loose its tooltip once this addon is installed ..... Great addon tho been uesing it for years

    Thanks

  • #385

    Thank you so much for updating this!  I love how it shows you the levels at which skills go from orange to yellow to green - nothing else I've been able to find does that. 

  • #381

    I installed the latest update for TradeskillInfo, v2.2.2, and immediately on logging in I see hundreds of errors and almost none of my AddOns work at all.

    I disabled TradeskillInfo and everything else works.

    Before installing the update to v2.2.2, v2.2.1 was working fine.

     Thank you.

    Please attach an error log next time, it took me a while to realise what the problem was.

    It should all be working fine in v2.2.3. Let me know if it doesn't.

    Out of the hundreds to choose from, I wasn't sure which you would want. In hindsight, I suppose anything would have helped. Sorry about that.

    It looks much better now. Thank you!
