Guild Craft

This project is abandoned.

Whether this project is out of date or its author marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

If you wish to take this project over, please report it and state your intentions.

Main Browser


Due to changes in cata, this addon is rendered functionally worthless, blizzard has included the primary goal of this addon into their Default UI. Due to Game API changes, it will be broken.

Guild Craft shows you what people in the guild can craft. Provided they have the addon or you have "imported" their profession. Use /gcb to show the browser or left click on the launcher provided by your LDB-Display of choice. Options can be found by right clicking the Launcher or using the slash command "/guildcraft" This addon is not intended to replace searching on wowhead or thottbot to find what you want. This is intended to show you what people can make once you found what you want.


Main Browser

The Main Browser shows by profession, with the listing off to the left hand side. All Bind on Pick up items are automatically filtered out. The Main area shows you who can craft the item, as well as displays the information about the item. The information displayed is in fact the enchant tooltip ( or Crafting Tooltip as if you had linked the item to someone from the tradeskill window). Also shows if they are online / off line or not in your current guild. You can shift Click the "Refresh" button to rebuild the cache. The Browser is Load on Demand and is a separate addon that comes packaged with Guild Craft. Browser Shows when Left Clicking on the launcher

A note about the search function

The search function also looks at the item's tooltip. For example, searching for "red agi" for jewel crafting will show any gem that fits a red slot that has agi on it. Searching "agi 60" in enchanting will show all enchants that do agi and where introduced in wrath. The search function is a multi-word explicit match method. Many have requested a filter / search by ItemQuality, this should now be possible though enabling Colorblind mode in the Default UI (Interface->Display). Alternate Implementation is not planned.

Database Care

Alternate Update
In the options section you can pull other people's links or push yours to them.
You can select a player to be removed from the database, however if that person is still in your guild they will auto update. This is not a blacklist feature.


  • Wowace Forum Thread
  • LDB Feed for quick access to the browser and options window as well as an extended tooltip showing an overview of what tradeskill data you have and from who.

Bug Reports and Errors

Please Report All bugs on the Curseforge Ticket Tracker. I do watch the tracker, please provide full information on the ticket.

Known Bugs

Immediately following a patch tradeskill data must be regenerated. There is a chance that not all links will work properly and that some will be removed regardless of updating. Try resting your TradeLink cache via slash command " /resetltldata ". This will wipe all your cached tradeskill data from the SavedVariables and force the addon to regenerate them after the UI is done reloading as this also reloads your UI in the same step. This pulls the data fresh and fast/properly from the client's local cache.

Also after patches it may be needed to purge a player's data out or in some cases reset the entire database. This can be done from the options menu under Datbase section.

Features Not Available

  • Filtering Based on Expansion Level.
  • Filtering / Searching by Required level plus.
  • Filtering / Searching based on anything not found on the crafting tooltip. Includes Level / ItemLevel ranges, Crafting Category.

These features are specifically declined as it would require a pre-built database of what recipes belong where. Also, this addon isn't a replacement for searching WoWHead.

    Hi, I have a suggestion which I will also submit via ticket:

    When you find an item you want made in the list, it gives the reagents for that item.

    But is it possible for it to list any reagents required to MAKE those reagents?

    For example with Engineering, a Turbo Charged Flying Machine requires: 1 Hula Doll 4 Adamantite Frames 8 Felsteel Stabilizer 8 Khorium Power Core

    But if someone is looking to have that made, they need to then separately go and look up what's required to make Adamantite Frames, Felsteel Stabilizers, and Khorium Power Cores.

    If the browser could list a breakdown of total materials required, down to the basest level even (ie. 48 Khorium ORE (not bars)), I think it would be really helpful. It would also be great for tradespeople looking for work in trade chat, etc.

    I've looked everywhere for an addon with this functionality, but had zero luck :(

    Thanks for all your hard work on this mod - it's still one of my favorites in game, and I'm constantly finding it useful. Just thought I'd give a thumbs up for a job well done!

    @mojonsson, it can, just havn't fleshed out more export methods. Add your sugestion to the phpExport ticket.

    Thanks for a great addon!

    In phpExport would it be possible to add a dropdown containing the different crafting skills? So you can decide which crafting skill to export?

    regardless where the link comes from, if the person is in your guild then i'll import it when you open the link

    My 2 cents: Think about whispers too.

    @samiboy, yes but you have to open the link first. Only accepts crafts from people in guild tho, i have to work out a system that will let you pick them up from out of guild.

    Does this addon automatically gathers trade skills from the guild channel or from whispers?

    yep, just /gcb, the rest of it should be self explanitory. The config can be accessed via your fav LDB display or by /guildcraft
