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.

    I download and use dozens of Addons. Let me say that this is the first addon that has compelled me to leave a comment.

    This is one NICE addon. EXTREMELY useful.

    Is there any way to filter out skill level colors? I am leveling a tradeskill and it would be very useful to not show any gray or green recipes. Is there a way to do this?

    If not, any chance this could be added? Would be a very useful feature! :)

    If anyone knows a quick way to do so, please post, I'll be monitoring this page! :)

    Shabazza, I am still not having any luck observing these freezes. You mentioned that this was something that happened recently. If you meant that the addon started behaving erratically after an update, can you tell me the version number that worked without these freezing problems?

    Also, are there any non-ascii characters in your toon's name? Perhaps there is a problem with saving the known recipes.

    Ydrisella, thanks for reporting inconsistencies. I have recently updated local data according to wowhead published values. Do you mind checking V1.2.0 instead?

    There are some incorrect skill requirements in the Inscription list, for example Armor Vellum III and Weapon Vellum III - I'll give you a full list tomorrow.

    Hi,

    It happens every time i open the window. Even if I opened a sub-category. I still use Skillet. The official, not lilspakis.

    regards, sha

    Shabazza, I am not seeing the freezes. Does it happen on a particular trade skill window, or all of them? Also is it only the first time, or every time you open it. And lastly, are you using another addon related to trade skills (Advanced Trade Skill Window, Skillet, Double wide, etc.)?

    AesirRising, thanks for the report. I should have some time later this week to look into it.

    As for the wowinterface page, I am aware that it is there and rotting away, but since I am not the original author, it is a lot of trouble to try and do something about it.

    Might be a lib error, I really don't know. But clicking the + icon to expand skills in the character sheet skill tab creates 3 sequences of about (literally) 200 Lua errors, starting with this one:
