Tradeskill Window

MrTrader is a Tradeskill window replacement, with additional features to streamline how you interact with others for your tradeskills, especially if you have alts. Browse all your tradeskills from any character on the same server, link them just as easily to others, and even allow others to ask for a tradeskill link without having to do anything on your part.

Core Features:

  • Tradeskill Window Replacement
    • Difficulty Filtering
    • Custom Collections
    • Context Menus
    • Auction House-style Filter Browsing
  • Auto-Responses in chat to link requests using '!full' or '!link'.
    • Supports Guild, Raid, and Whispers.
    • Fully configurable, with privacy-friendly defaults.
  • Server-Wide Tradeskill Access (requires a LibDataBroker display)
    • One-menu access to your tradeskills.
    • Link any tradeskill you know, or your alts know.
    • Browse any tradeskill you know, or your alts know.
    • Browse your guild's tradeskills without having to dig through the guild roster window.

LibDataBroker displays like Fortress or TitanPanel are required for the Tradeskill Access menu feature. I personally like TitanPanel, but any of them will work.

Note: I have been on break from WoW, and would be happy to pass the reins onto someone who is interested in running with the project. I can catch them up to speed on where things were going and share some prototypes I was playing with before I went on break. Contact me if interested.

    It was a great addon. Pity it is throwing too many errors in Patch 6.2. I still would like to thank Kolenka for giving this wonderful gift to all the World of Warcraft players.

    I would love an update for this addon :sadface:

    For those that can't wait for a fix, just disable the profit module. Sad I know, but returns functionality of the other features.

    ARL is responsible for adding the button. I don't know what they did, but they managed to break it without me doing anything to break it. I'd open a ticket against their project, it'll get fixed the fastest that way, I believe.

    Addon does not work with Ackis Recipe List anymore. Scan button from ARL does not appear. Disabling MT and enabling the default tradeskill UI restored ARL button.

    @Reeb: Go

    Just wanted to point out that I am playing again, and will be revisiting MrTrader. I did a tiny bit of housekeeping by fixing the TOC, and fixing Reeb's Lua error in 0.6.7.

    I had a Rift-inspired UI in the works that I'm still pondering what to do with. I don't know if I want to go with it or something entirely different. I'm trying to learn what I can from what other MMOs like SWTOR and Rift have done right/wrong with their own UI and apply it to MrTrader. The current UI seems to do as many good things as bad, and the bad things I can't really fix with the current UI. Some of the things I'm thinking of:

    • Information density of the window is fairly low. The window is big for some users, and you only get a half-dozen recipes displayed at a time. Can I improve this?
    • Despite reagents being visible, they are icon only. Some recipes require tiny icons as well in order to fit. This means that I spend a lot of time hovering when I want more information. Can I maybe move more information into the act of hovering so you can browse quickly, but not eat up space on things that are only half useful?
    • What can I do to cut through the data and help people find things faster? What questions are people really asking of the data? "What can I make with what I have?" "What levels my skills?" "What makes me money on the AH?" "What should I be wearing?"

    What a deepful pity that one of the best trade-skill add-ons, if at least not the best. is just dying silently... i wish someone would undertake this and go ahead...!!!!!!!!!!

    Not sure if your still maintaining this addon Kolenka but thought id post this error on the off-chance. Get it using the dropdown menu to delete a characters info.
