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.

    Took a bit longer than I hoped to fix. I thought to myself, "Why not just use the changes that the official UI made?"

    Problem was, that the fix they made doesn't seem to work right either. Some weird interaction with other addons or something, but linking just didn't work for me, even using the official tradeskill window. Had to come up with something completely different.

    But 0.5.11 should be up soon with the fix.

    A lot of addons that use the chat frame broke with 3.3.5.

    Looks like they changed things up with what works and what doesn't. I'm looking into it. :)

    Since Patch 3.3.5 I got an error message everytime I link my profession per whisper to someone. Here's the error message:

    fostot, go ahead and try it again. I've not seen the bug in a couple months, and again without any updated code.

    The code I use to kick off crafting is IDENTICAL to the default tradeskill window, so the only thing I can think of is a weird client/server interaction bug that should have affected pretty much all addons equally.

    I hope to see this addon updated again soon with fixes the the previously mentioned bug. I miss it so much kolenka!

    and low and behold.... i just had it stop when the "quality" of the craft changed just like you said. It shifted to yellow from orange crafted some stopped.. I hit create all again it shifted to green crafted some and stopped.

    kolenka, that's odd, i never have it fail after more than 2. Here let me explain mine just so you have it.

    Login fresh + Open TradeSkills + Hit Create All, 2 Items get crafted it stops. Hit create all again, it never stops again. Reload your UI do it again... same thing 2 crafted then it stops until you hit create all again.

    I'm going to try to track it down in the code as well. Maybe you should write some debugging code to show exactly what is happening everytime something is crafted when create all is hit. Like how many items it add's to the queue / etc.

    Which kinda sucks, because it hints more towards either weird interaction with Blizz's tradeskill addon, or a bug in the client. After 3.3, I've been seeing it occur less, and it usually fails after 6 rather than 2 now, and I know I didn't change any code.

    Best guess I have now is that something is closing the tradeskill window in the middle of crafting, but I don't know what.

    kolenka, sadly it happens when i ONLY have that addon enabled. :( So I don't believe any other addons are at fault for aiding in the issue.

    This seems to only happen when I hit create all, if i tell it a custom amount to create it does. So I think it must be with somehow you are setting variables, or something that gets set when Create All is pressed.

What do you want to see first? (See Comments for Details)
