This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

Reagent Helper 2: Remastered


Inspired by the original addon by Tuatara from Cosmos UI comes Reagent Helper 2: Remastered. RH2 shows within a reagent item's tooltip the Profession and/or Class it is used for.

Type /rh2 in game to configure Reagent Helper 2.

I am not the original author of Reagent Helper nor was I ever apart of the original project, CosmosUI, etc. I am merely an addon author who decided to bring it back.

Change Log


  • Long overdue DB update.
  • Support for Mists of Pandaria.

  • Cataclysm DB update.


  • 4.0.3a DB update.

  • 4.0 compatibility.
  • Minor optimization tweak.

Reagent Helper 2 Database (DB)

Credit Where Credit is Due

Reagent Helper 2 comes with its own reagent database that I created using data and info from WowHead and WowPedia with all profession reagent data parsed from WowHead and all class reagent info from WowPedia. I take absolutely no credit for any of this information. I do, however, take credit for the database and its structure. It should not be used else where with out my permission.

Supported Profession Reagents

  • Alchemy
  • Blacksmithing
  • Cooking
  • Enchanting
  • Engineering
  • First Aid
  • Inscription
  • Jewelcrafting
  • Leatherworking
  • Mining
  • Tailoring

Supported Class Reagents

  • Death Knight
  • Druid
  • Mage
  • Priest
  • Shaman

The Old Addon vs The New

"In the Beginning, there was Cosmos... In the end, there wasn't." quoted from CosmosUI. Sadly Cosmos no longer exists along with the original addon. As I grew attached to the addon, I wasn't very happy when I heard it was no longer in development. So after some time I finally decided to make Reagent Helper 2!

The original Reagent Helper was written using Sea to provide the reagent data and tooltip hooks. Reagent Helper 2 is a complete rewrite using Ace3. The reagent data is also included inside Reagent Helper 2 instead of in a separate addon library.

    @Radoznali: Go

    It is working. I am having trouble updating the DB for 4.2, though. I hope to have an update soon.

    Is this addon working for 4.2 or is it outdated?

    That is an interesting idea! I may be able to pull that off. I wont promise anything, but I will look into it.

    Bless you for reviving this must have addon !

    There is something I'd really really love to see implemented if posisble.

    I've been searching for an addon that shows the proffession Level required for that reagent.

    for example: if i have

    [Silk Cloth] Tailoring (100-125) Leatherworking (140-180) Engineer (170-190)

    and so on and so fourth. (keep in mind i made up the numbers so its not really the levels)

    Thanks a Million
