Skillet: A trade skill window replacement

Skillet is a replacement for the default tradeskill and craft UI, and is based on ATSW, by Slarti. This is not a continuation of ATSW, which is still going strong as far as I know, but is rather a brand new mod based in the ideas in ATSW.

To report bugs and request new features check:
To help with Localization see:


  • Larger the the standard tradeskill window
  • Built-in queue for creating multiple, different items
  • User editable list of notes attached to reagents and crafted items.
  • Automatically buy reagents for queued recipes when visiting a vendor
  • Recipes can be filtered by name, whether or not you could level when creating the item, and whether or not you have the mats available.
  • If you can craft a reagent needed by a recipe, then clicking on that reagent will take you to its recipe (same features as Reverse Engineering.
  • Queued items are saved when you log out and are restored on log in
  • If the item to be crafted requires a minimum level to use, that level can be displayed along with the recipe (disabled by default)
  • The shopping list of items needed for all queued recipes for all alts can be displayed at banks, auction houses, or from the command line
  • Items needed for crafting queued items can be automatically retrieved from your bank or guild bank (by using the shopping list)
  • Sorting of recipes (name, difficulty, level, and quality of crafted item)
  • Complete or mostly complete localizations for deDE, esES, frFR, ruRU, koKR, zhCN, zhTW.
  • Tracking inventory on alternate characters
  • Item tooltips can be set to display the list of alternate characters that can craft the item.
  • Custom filtering of recipes (have mats, have mats in bank, min level/max level, etc)
  • Custom grouping

    You are amazing; this mod is one of a handful that take Blizzards crappy basic interface and improve it enough to make the game playable.

    That being said, I have a couple requests which are hopefully not too difficult:

    1. Please add a collapse all/expand all button
    2. Please add the crafting levels in, where it shows the skillup ranks (red, orange, yellow and green) like ATSW has.

    Those are my only requests for an already outstanding mod.

    Thanks for keeping it alive!

    It's great to see this addon worked on again. Nogudnik, please, if your not going to continue this addon, hand it over to lilsparky. Lilsparky has done some wonderful improvements, and if you ever do come back I think you should use his improvements :D.

    For my little problem, I use arkinventory as my bag manager. I know in the past you had to have a supported inventory manager in order for the addon to allow you to queue items to produce from reagents on an alt. This feature in why i really loved the addon. I can't seem to get it to work with your current version, lilsparky. Any help or a push in the right direction to fix this would be awesome. I would hate to go bag to the lag fest that is ATSW. < hate that mod.

    Thank you, Wispkeeper

    @JaimSandar (and anyone else interested):

    From here, click "Repositories" then select "lilsparkys-clone". From that page, select "Files for this clone".

    this mod helped me a lot in the past but too bad that's no more updated

    In my humble opinion, you should just let Lilsparky take the active role in developing Skillet (for now?). He's working wonders with his clone right now.
