  • How to search in Auction House? - Alt+Click on shopping list
  • How to retrieve items from bank? - Turn on "Display shopping list at banks"

    I'm happy to see that some progress on a 5.4 version has been made. Would you like to see tickets on the Alpha version(s)?

  • Avatar of bsmorgan bsmorgan Sep 11, 2013 at 03:52 UTC - 1 like

    Is any attempt being made to create a 5.4 compatible version?

    I know tradeskill links are going to be painful but I'd like a version with those features that depend on them disabled.

    The default tradeskill UI is terrible!

    Just a heads up. The tradeskill link is changing formats (again) in 5.4, see:

    I have taken over maintenance of KevTool Queue, an addon which allows you to automatically queue items up for crafting in Skillet with a simple command. I have found the combination of Skillet, LilSparky's Workshop, and KTQ to be extremely powerful. It saves me an enormous amount of time on my daily crafting chores.

    I've posted a new version of KTQ with some updates for WoW 5.3. If you'd like to check it out, please go to:

    Or search for KevTool Queue in the Curse client.

    Major changes to a TradeSkillLink in 5.3. See for details.

    Is there a way to access Skillet without resorting to activating one of my professions? Maybe a mini-map button? Any assistance in this matter would be appreciated.

    Ooook... I realy like your addon so i just took some of my play time and finished the last 40% of the brazilian portuguese version. Glad to say its a go go for launch on the upgrade

    See ya :)

    Hello - Once 4.3 dropped if I have craftable items queued the shopping list no longer opens automagically at the AH nor at my bank. I don't know about the guild bank functionality. I can of course manually open the list but then I cannot use the list to retrieve the needed items. Alt-clicking on listed items throws an error, but that hasn't worked since I've used the addon so I'm not concerned with it.

    I've double checked the addon settings and things should be working. I see no errors via BugGrabber. Anyone else experiencing this behavior? let me know what you think, and thanks for a most excellent addon.

    Skillet works for me(tm) as of 4.3. Just set WoW to load out-of-date addons or mess up with Skillet.toc and set Interface to 40300. :)
