TB Artisan

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 Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.



TB Artisan automatically loots materials produced by a profession. This includes disenchanting magical items, prospecting ore, milling herbs, gathering herbs, extracting gas, skinning creatures, breaking down mechanical creatures, mining ore nodes, and fishing. TB Artisan's auto-loot feature is only active for materials gathered through professions and thus relieves you of the hassle of constantly toggling auto-loot if you dislike having it on all of the time.

Profession Links

Last but not least, TB Artisan monitors incoming whispers, allowing other players to request your tradeskill links. TB Artisan will make a best effort to recognize queries formulated in plain English, and respond with the appropriate tradeskill link, or letting players know you do not possess that tradeskill.


The triggers include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • ?jc
  • Are you a tailor?
  • Which glyphs can you make?
  • Link me your first aid list.
  • Can I see your enchants?
  • lw?


  • Alchemy
  • Blacksmithing
  • Cooking
  • Enchanting
  • Engineering
  • First Aid
  • Inscription
  • Jewel crafting
  • Leather working
  • Smelting
  • Tailoring

If you have a specialization (such as Transmutation Master), TB Artisan will detect that and use the appropriate link in its response. Feel free to experiment with reasonable English sentences (even partial ones). The language parser is case-insensitive, and does not require you to end your questions with a question mark. TB Artisan recognizes a vast range of abbreviations for each profession.


TB Artisan will remember profession links across all of your characters, and offers the ability to include profession links from your alts when responding to queries.



TB Artisan has the ability to alert your party or raid whenever you prepare (ie. drop) a Great or Fish Feast. The alert will be sent as a raid warning if you are in a party, or if you have sufficient privileges in a raid. Otherwise, it will be sent to the raid channel. This option is configurable via the Blizzard Interface menu (default: enabled).

Thank the Chefs

TB Artisan has the ability to automatically thank the people who prepare a Great or Fish Feast. It is smart enough to distinguish between real Feasts and mere emotes. This option is configurable via the Blizzard Interface menu (default: disabled).


TB Artisan depends on TB Core. The latest release of TB Core is included with TB Artisan so you do not need to download it separately.


Localization for TB Artisan is open. Please contribute your translations using the CurseForge contribution page.

About the Author

I am a professional software engineer who plays World of WarCraft way too much and develops add-ons as a hobby (crazy, I know!). I have played the same character since the release of World of WarCraft, a hunter called Valana, in the Team BATTLE guild on the Mug'thol realm. I raid some, but my primary focus in this game is PvP.

Please donate to help keep this add-on going!
