ProfessionsVault

ProfessionsVault UI

Simple and light-weight tracking of profession links and recipes for all your alts and friends. Tooltip enhancements and AH/merchant coloring for professions-related recipes and items - ideal for recipe collecting, profession leveling, and any serious crafting.

NOTE: PATCH 5.4 BREAKS PV AND SIMILAR ADDONS

Blizzard has made a major change to the operation of tradeskill hyperlinks in patch 5.4.0, whose implementation seriously affects their usability and fundamentally breaks addons such as ProfessionsVault that rely upon them. Read more details here, and please help complain on the Blizzard Bug Report Forums. A recent tweet from Blizzard Community Manager Bashiok hints there may be a fix forthcoming in a future client patch, however it STILL remains broken after two client patches (5.4.2).

The current release of ProfessionsVault is a "cripped" version that omits the features which rely upon working TradeSkill links (annotated below). There is still no way to open the trade skill links for characters that are offline or you are not directly interacting with. This limitation is imposed by Blizzard's broken hyperlink implementation, as described above. Other features are fully functional, notably including recipe coloring and AH scanning. It notably also allows you to open the tradeskill windows of any same-guild toon in your database (it uses the guild roster to bypass the broken hyperlinks).

Features

Profession list features

  • ProfessionsVault automatically records and saves the profession links of all your alts
  • Easily allows saving any professions linked from friends or guildies into your database
  • <Broken in 5.4> Provides one-click access to the Trade Skill UI of any toon's profession.
  • Supports easily posting links of your toon's professions to any chat
  • Data is shared between all your toons on the realm, including cross-faction
  • <Broken in 5.4> Comes pre-loaded with links to fully-stocked professions

Tooltip/Recipe features

  • Enhances recipe tooltips with info about which characters can learn the pattern
  • Colors recipes in the Auction House display to indicate which characters can learn the pattern
  • Colors recipes in the Merchant (vendor) window display to indicate which characters can learn them.
  • Automated scan allows your bank character to scan the AH for recipes learnable by any alt.
  • Customizable recipe coloring and character name coloring

Misc features

  • Includes an LDB broker with easy access to your professions, supports Fubar or Titan Panel, or can be used stand-alone
  • Based on the Ace3 Addon Framework
  • Enables the "link" button on all profession windows (default UI just has it for your own)
  • Integrates nicely with other profession-related addons such as Ackis Recipe List, Skillet, Advanced Trade Skill Window and Gnomeworks

Usage

  • Open the PV window using the minimap icon, LDB launcher or by typing "/pv show" on the command line.
  • PV window shows all the saved professions for your character, any alts on the same account running PV, and any profession links you've saved.
  • <Broken in 5.4> PV window also includes links to fully-stocked professions (ie containing every recipe)
  • Data update happens automatically whenever you open a trade skill window, or you can update them all at any time using the "Scan my Professions" button. PV will automatically update when you learn a recipe or skill up.
  • Config button can be used to configure tooltip/coloring integration.
  • To save any profession link into PV (eg whispered from a friend or in trade), just open the link and press the new "Save" button that appears at the bottom of the Trade Skill UI. The same technique can be used to merge profession data from a second account (dual-boxing).

    Blacky - Danke! (Yes that's all the German I speak :-)
    I think I fixed this problem in version r65.
    Could you please try it again and let me know if it works and whether you've seen any other error messages?

    There's really not much to add regarding the error, it's right there in bugsack when i log in.

    If i disable Atlasloot i get the exact (100% identical) same error just with bartender 4 instead.

    But as i said it happens at login so i'm not doing anything.

    Edit:

    Same thing happens with r41

    Should probably mention that it doesn't stop your addon from working

    Edit2:

    Made a ticket, bleh :p

    EekTC - I don't see how this error could ever occur. Could you please post a ticket with further details about what you were doing when the error happened?

    I voted with +3

    Btw, it's good, that you added the link to the toc file (I think it was in r35) so people have at least a minimal chance to find their way back to your addon again. ;)
