What’s Your Style?

I read this entertaining post over at WoWenomics the other day, and found this horribly accurate description of myself:



Are Craftables Back?

June 2, 2009

For the last couple of months I’ve been working on my hunter and warrior alts.  My hunter just reached 80 about ten days ago, and since then I’ve been gearing her up a bit.  Of course I started with crafting her some goodies as well as scoping the auction for BOE gear.  I’ve also been going back to Kaliope’s feral gear and looking for ways to beef her up – she’s still wearing some 70 epics from last year.  Ugh, I’m soooo last year!!  


Bring Back Crafting Quests!

May 29, 2009

I know – I hear you saying that we have crafting quests.  The daily Cooking quest, the daily Jewelcrafting quest, and just recently the daily Fishing quest.  These are fine and I’ve been enjoying the new Fishing daily.  In fact, just a few days ago I scored the nifty crab pet =)  This isn’t really what I mean by crafting quests, the cooking and JC quests hardly even use our crafting skill.  The quests I want back are the old AQ/AD style crafting quests that required actual tradeskill abilities to complete.


TradeTrak Has Been Updated!

May 21, 2009

During my recent hiatus I’ve been trying to get our recipe mod updated with all the newest recipes and latest changes.  Finally this morning we’ve posted our newest copy of TradeTrak, complete with 99.99% of new recipes from patch 3.1.  For those of you using our add-on, you can download a new copy from Curse or WowInterface.

Please let us know if you have any problems with it!

3.1 Recipes Now Online

May 1, 2009

Some of you have noticed that there are a number of missing recipes on Crafter’s Tome, predominantly Ulduar drops.  These items finally started showing up in the Armory last week, so I’ve tried to collect as many as I could and add them to our site.  Not all of the information is complete, because the Armory is still showing no drop locations for some items.  There may still be some items missing and I will continue to monitor the Armory for those.  The most glaring omission is the Alchemy recipes which are purported to be in Ulduar.  But all of my latest updates are now on the site including all of the new Glyphs learned from books.


Recipe Data Updated for 3.0.8

February 6, 2009

This is just a quick post to let everyone know that I think I’ve finally caught up on all my updates for our recipe data and hopefully it’s current with Patch 3.0.8.  New items include all the PVP gem recipes that were added to the Wintergrasp vendor, as well as the known World Drop gem recipes that were just released.  Also included are the ongoing Alchemy discoveries and Inscription research glyphs that I’ve been plugging away on since November.  If anyone spots any errors or omissions, feel free to drop me an email!


Recipe Lists Updated for 3.0.8

January 22, 2009

This is just a quick post to let you all know that our web site has been updated with the recipes and changes from the latest patch.  There are a few items that might be missing some information due to lack of data on Wowhead but I tried to include as much as I could.  I will keep filling in the blanks as I can, but I think there’s enough up there now for most folks to find what they need.

Feel free to drop me an email or comment if you want to share something I’m missing :)

State of the Tome

January 6, 2009

Sorry peeps, I know I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks.  It’s been a hectic holiday season and I’d hoped to get caught up on my backlog of work with my extra free time.  Unfortunately I had a house guest over the holidays, so my free time kinda got consumed with cleaning and entertaining.  So the bad news is that the backlog is still lingering.  The other bad news is that I’ve had the misfortune of being on the wrong side of the PTR glitch that locks some folks out of the server.  I might be able to get in with a full or partial reinstall, but haven’t had time to fuss with that.  Which means at this point… no PTR news :(


Loot Recipes Now Online!

December 10, 2008

I’ve gotten an unusually high number of emails over the last week or so, informing me of loot drop recipes that aren’t on Crafter’s Tome.  To all those who contacted me with missing recipes — thank you :)  This includes my guild leader who messaged me a wall of text on resist enchants and leather kits that they were farming in some zone I won’t see for a few more weeks <sniff>.


To Keep or Not to Keep, THAT is the question

And now for some reader mail… regular visitor Teneightyp writes:

I love the crafting portion of the game.  I started out 3 years ago on my now main as a miner/Engineer and loved every bit of engineering.  However when The Burning Crusade came out, I really liked the idea of being a Jewelcrafter and making more stuff for my own good, and the good of my fellow guildies.  (more…)
