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.

    i have an idea. the original author of trade tabs hasn't been around, and the person who did the fan update is not interested in adapting it to anything other then the original window. so maybe the functionality of trade tabs could be implemented in this? would be awesome since i hate the idea of having to pick one or the other >.< ty for this addon btw, best working crafting replacement out there =D

    The window needs to be scalable and there should be an option to turn off icon display. Icons simply take up too much real estate. Also the window needs to have the ability to move OFF screen. One more problem happens when, because the window is too large, occasionally I disable it so that I can use the smaller default interface. The problem arises with Akis' button, which displays fine before I disable MrTrader, thereafter it only appears on the default tradeskill window , even after re enabling MrTrader.

    Ask and ye shall receive, it seems. After my last comment, I got a beta key 2 days later.

    So I've been playing with the beta a bit this weekend and how my addon works with it. It's definitely got some Cata bugs, but nothing that can't be fixed. Some of the core code had to be changed since the old way of looking at skills is gone, and new APIs for getting the profession list are now included. Blizz also added a couple convenience APIs for things I was doing previously (using the tradeskill icon in the portrait) which are nice to clean up as well.

    Some of this work has also fixed a small bug here and there in Wrath. Expect 0.6b7 to work with both 3.3.5 and 4.0.1.

    Until Cata becomes available, or I get a beta key, I can't do anything about Cata compatibility, so I haven't even been thinking about it yet.

    How to deal with reagents is something that has been on my mind. It's not so straight-forward, because the information that needs to be available isn't something that is available from the normal API. And there aren't really any addons that expose this information either. That's a problem. This information is something that can potentially change every patch, and I really don't want to get into the business of maintaining data like that. It's a guarantee that it will eventually stop being useful.

    Sorting by things like profit would be a ways away (probably 0.7 or so). I'm still trying to get the plugin architecture done, and there's a couple key things that aren't yet implemented that will allow me to do more interesting stuff going forward.

    Great profession mod so far. Hopefully it will continue to be valid in Cataclysm, barring some major revisions of the current professions tab. If you do continue building this w/ cata in mind, it would be great to add a couple things.

    1. What xevilgrin was talking about in his 1.) - clicking thru recipe subcomponents would be major.

    2. Alpha blending recipes that cannot be completed because parts are missing. The parts list is alpha blended nicely, so doing the same to recipe may seem like overkill, but i think it would work well.

    some suggestions... ;-)

    1.) as for example inscription it would be great if I could only craft, clicking a glyph, then MrT automatically crafts at first the required ink for the recipe and then the glyph itself. if not this way soluteable maybe via an extra button "Continuing Crafting" to craft the glyph(s) right after the inks are done.

    Or for a quicker access to the inks, maybe link the inkicon in the right side of a recipe to the ink itself... to click for example Midnight Ink in a glyph recipe and get directed to craft the ink itself (hope you understand my bad english)

    2.) sortable recipes (via checkbox near Materials) from highest to lowest profit would be great (if not still implemented and i didn't recognized it)

    3.) moveable recipes in the favorites, so you can arrange your favorites on your own behaviour and sort it by hand for your interest

    There is a tab at the top of this page marked 'Tickets'. Clicking that takes you to a page where you can submit a new one. There is also a 'Ticket' button on this very page next to download and install that takes you to the ticket creation page.

    Sorry, I've never used this site before, I didn't know there was a ticket system :( I tried reading the overview several times to see if you mentioned a better place for bugs, I guess I should've tried to find a general site FAQ instead... thanks though...

    EDIT: latest build does fix it though, looks great too, thanks again :)
