Prospecting example


Displays a bar on screen that allows quick access to enchanting, jewelcrafting, and inscription professions by presenting a Disenchant/Prospect/Mill button and all of the breakable items you have for that profession next to it. Also displays a bar for any locked junkboxes in your inventory if you're a Rogue. This allows one-click access for breaking down items instead of finding the item in your bag, clicking the appropriate profession/skill button, and clicking the item for each and every item you want to break. For prospecting and milling, you will see the number of items you have alongside the number of times you can break it. In the prospecting screenshot on the right, the player has 169 total Saronite Ore in his bags which will allow for 33 total prospects.


By default, if you have the appropriate profession and items in your inventory, a bar will appear with the profession ability followed by any items that are eligible for breaking. You can hold shift to drag the bar around if you want to move it. Clicking the profession button will activate that ability (disenchant/prospect/mill) and clicking an item will break it. You don't have to click the profession button first as simply clicking the item will automatically break it down.


Typing /brk will open the configuration settings (or you can get to it from Blizzard's Interface options) which consist of:

  • Hide if no breakables: this will control whether you see the profession button or not when nothing breakable is detected
  • Max number to display: this controls the highest number of items that you will see next to your profession button. If this is 5 but you have 10 breakable items in your bags, you will only see 5 at a time.
  • Show soulbound items: aimed at enchanters, this controls whether or not you will see items that are soulbound as breakable items or not.

Known issues

  • If you have a stack less than 5 positioned properly in your bags, the game will say that you do not have enough items to break. This is a bug in Blizzard's API and is present with all similar tradeskill mods that I've tried out. The default UI now has a built-in button to compress stacks that should solve this issue.

    Any way to have it ignore BoA items? It thinks they're DEable. :)

    Keybinding/Mouse click option, I do like to see what I'm de'ing.

    Sorry I was very tired when I typed this. I must learn not to do that. This part was the request: Keybinding/Mouse click option. For example. I have dominos and I use Shift Right click to mount on my pony. I was wondering if there was a way to do the same type of "mouse click" like say Shift middle click to prospect. I could then have the bar anywhere and not lose the whole 3 seconds moving my mouse to the bar.

    I do like to see what I'm de'ing.was a complement. I don't know what I was thinking blending that all together.

    Thank you about the equipment manager. I did figure that out. Brilliant by the way.

    New request: Would you consider opening things here as well. Say Rouges/Blacksmith with keys/Engineers with bombs have locked boxes show here. and of course Clams, satchels and pouches. Presently I use clamstacker -it works great for the clams and bags but a one stop shop would be even better.

    I'm not sure I understand. You want an option to disenchant the first item in the list from a keybinding? Mouse clicking is already supported, of course.

    If there was a way to right click on it from your back or by using the item number. This way when you are soloing dungeons you can "ShowSoulbond" but not de you fishing pole or something you want by mistake.

    Add the fishing pole to one of your outfits in Blizzard's equipment manager (or add it to Outfitter and have that outfit sync with the game). Then check the option to not show soulbound items that are part of an outfit.

    This is awesome, great even .. very helpful for mass de in a dungeon by myself.

    Keybinding/Mouse click option, I do like to see what I'm de'ing.

    Second: Would it be possible to have a do not show option? For instance: /breakable DoNotShow [Chef's Hat] -nvm figured it out.

    If there was a way to right click on it from your back or by using the item number. This way when you are soloing dungeons you can "ShowSoulbond" but not de you fishing pole or something you want by mistake.

    thank you again. loving the hard work.

    Placement is already saved between sessions - works fine for me.

    as mentioned already then some sort of placement that is actually saved in between sessions would be great... I hate that I have to undock fubar to shift-drag the breakables "bar" down into view and then redock fubar...

    If you have auto-looting enabled by default in the game's options, yes.
