This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

MillHelp is a simple addon that displays which pigments will be produced when the herb is milled on the herb's tooltip and the herbs needed on the ink tooltips.


  • Show common and uncommon results for pigments (common in white, uncommon in green)
  • If an ink uses common pigments the herbs are shown in white
  • If an ink uses uncommon pigments the herbs are shown in green

If you want to display the "Milling:" heading, type /script MILLHELP_HEADER = true, if later you wish to remove the header type /script MILLHELP_HEADER = nil

These commands change the saved variable for the addon, so the command will set the option until you change it back.

Item Cache

Previous versions required user interaction to ensure the local item cache was up to date after a patch. New versions (2.0 and beyond) handle this task automatically. While the cache is being updated, some items might display "Updating Cache" instead of the milling and inscription information. Once the updating process is complete, simply mouse-over the items again and you will see the useful information. Updating the cache takes roughly one minute from when your character logs into the game.


Comments, tickets or the forum thread are all great places to suggest features or report bugs. Of the three, replies to comments will be the slowest but I will read them eventually.


All the strings that need translation are now included in the WoWAce Localization app. Anyone can now finish up translations. If you want to be sure new or corrected translations make it into a release file a ticket too. Otherwise I'll include them whenever I check the page.
