How about if you could mouseover the spell and find the stats/mats and have the text link to thottbot? It's cool to see everything I don't have though :thumleft:

Having the names link back to Thott or Alla would be great. Aside from that, I think it's fine as is. I like the simplicity and I'm not as concerned with what it takes to make something when I don't have the recipe in the first place. :D

What about a french version of it... I'm tryed to implement it on my roster and it doesn't work. Seems that the profession are never find in it.

The addon isn't localized for frFR what-so-ever. Please feel free to do that if you can, and I will include it for the future.

I think also it will have a problem since the recipe's it checks against aren't localized, and are always in English.

I'm planning right now how to implement v2.0 of this, and I expect I will have it done in the next week or two, and it will definetly have non-enUS users in mind :)

Your assumption is not correct. It doesn't work in a french-populated roster.

Please have a look at

Suggestion, a pop-up Printer friendly format that has it in clean table form with unchecked checkboxes. Great for the 'print out the list and check them off' types.


You also might be able to add a new column for skill level. Either you could be lazy add reference Roster tables to see if it's 'known', or you might be able to modify:
Code: Select all
preg_match_all("~href=\"\/db\/spell.html\?wspell=[1-9][0-9]{0,5}
\&source\=live\">([^\<]+)<\/a>~", $contents, $matches);


to include pulling out of the 3rd <td> the Skill level. That'd also allow you to color based on difficulty like Made By (perhaps Red for beyond current level?) as well as ask the user if they'd only like Unknowns based on their current skill level.

Now that I'm looking at this in more detail, you could also do matching for the recipe! Woo... the recipe is linked underneath the item's spell.html link, like so:
Code: Select all
<br><small><<a onmouseover="showstats(event,'id13476');" onmouseout="clearstats('id13476');"
href="/db/item.html?witem=13476"><span class="greenname">
Recipe: Mighty Rage Potion</span></a>></small>


That would allow a 'Learned from Recipe' column with quick linking to where to find the recipe.

Hope those are useful suggestions with useful enough pointers to doing some of the complicated bits.

Very clever add-on as is! Kudos!

Haha... Averen, you're too cool for school some days. :thumleft:

How about that skill range filter and printer friendly view, maybe some pretty mouse over data? :mrgreen:

Avaren: Very nice changes. I'm about to release the same changes pretty much.

I'd like to ask if you mind if I use some of your code (mainly the skill coloring)?

I like Averen's version. Very nice.

The only other suggestion I would make would be to have it filter out the receipes you can't learn (like Tribal v. Elemental v. Dragonscale LW). I know I read something about why this isn't in place yet, but I just wanted to say it would be nice anyway. :)

Please look to the downloads for a new version.

Added quite a bit, and it's a ton faster.

I'm still trying to work out how to localize it.

This new version appears to be bugged out. The table shows both the product and the recipe. Also, I know all of the current Alchemy recipes in the game. When I looked at my profile before, it showed me a handful of beta recipes that no longer exist. When I look at my profile now, only some of those beta recipes are shown. Seems like you need to refine or revert your search/parsing.

zeryl go ahead and take all you want, I love the addon to bits and I just wanted to see what I could make it do. The only way to localize is would be to have totally new data sources for other languages as Alla is only english. This would mean different parsing systems to.
