I'm looking for/requesting/submitting an idea for/about an addon that will, as the title says, give you a walkthrough for a tradeskill.
By this i mean..
It will make a list of what to make to level your profession to the desired skill level, listing the cheapest way to do so - based on the current AH values of each item.
It should be able to list alternate ways to level up. One for "hard to get" crafts, and one for trainer only(or let the player chose what crafts should be available for price comparison.
I'm not a good(read:no friggin clue:P) lua programmer, so i don't think i'd get far with this if i tried.
For those that don't know already, wowhead.com has a super way of displaying tradeskills(or other items/spells/etc for that matter) just as a reference.
Preferably, in it's complete form, this addon would display what to get from the AH, then where to buy the vendor items, then when you have the needed items, say how much to craft of each item to get the best "bang for your buck" - so to say.
If this is something that has already been made, i 'just haven't found it yet and any clues on where to get it would be nice ;)
If you should decide to pick this idea up as a project, please make it known.
Would be a bit of a waste if multiple people worked on separate projects based on the same idea without knowing about the others.
this is a feature i'd like to add to my skillet branch as an optional plug in.
well, sort of. what i'd like to do first is give the ability for people to copy and paste tradeskill queues. combine that with the ability to use complete tradeskill data (like supplied from tradeskill info) and you've got the rough ability to create leveling charts for different skills. then you'd just need a way to export/import those queues (probably just hand coding from the saved variables file).
throw in some smarts for the queue system -- like "do this trade until you've got x items" or "do this trade until your skill level is x" and i think people could create skillet queue packs for different skills. you could dl and install a mod that would just feed your queue. if done right, it should be able to skip to whatever level you're at and go from there. dunno about selecting different skills -- that'd probably have to be done at the time the queue is created.
now if i could find the time to actually get coding it...
