Profession AddOns

Due to the increasing data size and memory usage with each WoW expansion, the professions have been split into their own AddOns; you need only download the ones you'll be using. Each installed and enabled profession AddOn will load whenever it's first accessed by the ARL core.

You can either download the Ackis Recipe List Addon Pack which has Ackis Recipe List's core and all profession AddOns, or install the profession AddOns separately:

Note that Ackis Recipe List will not work without the AddOn for the profession you are trying to scan. If you attempt to scan a profession that is not installed, you will be informed.

    hello, let me say its very hard to contact you ><

    anyways. your mod for inscriptions doesnt have an up-date for the new 3.1 glyphs from the books. and the recipy for "glyph of typhoon" says it comes from the professions trainer when it really comes from minor inscription research.

    sorry if you alrady heard about this bug just wanted to let you know. so you can fix it..
