    maniacski: It's still there with the option to place it in other areas on the trade skill frame.

    Type /arl and check out to see where you have it positioned in the general options.

    Just wondering if the scan button that used to be at the top right corner of the tradeskill windows has been removed fully, or if it will be comming back. found it much more handy than typing in the /arl scan command to bring up the window?

    If you have a cooking or first aid book/quest complete, but aren't past the skill level, it'll show the book/quest as unknown (ie: I have read the first aid skill book for skill level 150, however my skill in first aid is only 140, it'll show the book as unknown still).

    This should be able to be fixed by a spellbook check instead of a skill level check.

    Any info you can provide will help.

    Just added Icy Prism (it was added but the spell ID was missing).

  • Avatar of Kelem Kelem Jan 21, 2009 at 00:45 UTC - 0 likes

    Icy Prism, ID 62242 is not in the DB

    Also, there are numerous recipes listed as being trainable and they are not. They can only be obtained with JC tokens in Dalaran, not from any trainer.

    If you want me to list all of them, I will do so.

    To the translators, first thank you very much.

    I've tried to add everyone who has been using the localization application to the project.

    I just converted over all non-enUS localizations to use the new application, which means that any change you make online here will be put into the next build of the application.

    I'm trying to get a new beta out by the end of the week as well.
