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.

    Current now, you may not see cooking, enchanting,  mining recipes. These should be seen after you reach 90.

    Wish this would get updated - I've used it for years and it's a fantastic addon. In the meantime, is there an alternative addon that shows the profession level ranges (orange/yellow/green) for receipes they way this one did?
  • #372

    is this add-on ever going to be updated...it won't work at all anymore....and i use it alot. But i keep getting the LUA Error

    Thanks guys ahead of times ...i realy like the add-on

  • #369

    I have a feature request/suggestion. I like the "Usable by" in the tooltip, but I have 10 toons on Duskwood. I do not like seeing 10 "Grey" toons listed. Can you add an option to only show "Usable by" for a certain skill level. For me I only like seeing Yellow or better so I know to mail my alt the items. For anyone else who would like this ability and does not want to wait for an update change line # 1486 of "TradeskillInfo.lua" from "if num > 0 then" to be "if num > 0 and diff > # then" where "#" is a number. The numbers are 0 -> Grey, 1-> Green, 2 -> Yellow, 3-> Orange. Thanks for making a great addon!

  • #365

    Not a bad addon, I only use it to look up recipes.   The only problem I have is how do you disable every recipe in the UI showing up red.... That god aweful red is giving me a migrane trying to read the recipe names!  There's a tab to change it in the auction house but not in the UI...

     

  • #366

    Ok, got it.  For anyone else interested change line 803 in tradeskillinfo.lua to

        local player,alt = 1,0;     -- for white or

        local player,alt = 0,1;     -- for grey

  • #364

  • #370

    File not available :(

  • #367

    THX but 4 me it doens't work. Any suggestions? Maybe there is an alternative? TY!

  • #368

    That 4.2-updated version works fine here. Its contained in a ZIP file you have to install yourself.

  • #362

    I have to say, this is the most convenient and useful addon that I've ever seen.

    With just one right click, everything I need to know appears.

    Someone please keep it updating..Cry

  • #363

    I can't agree with u anymore.

    Even I have interesting with this addon, but it's too complex to continue for a Taiwanese.

    Hope someone will keep updating.
