Hmhm... I guess I'm a minority here but I really love crafting in WoW. Maybe I have a secret obsessive-compulsive streak, lol! Finding the mats and seeing that (2) or whatever number which shows me how many of an item I could craft, especially while levelling, makes me feel like I've just accomplished something major.I know I know, I'm easily entertained ;-)

I've only really had that feeling from Engineering. Because there are just so many parts to these things. You almost get the feeling you're building a contraption. Even Engineering feels a little simplified, but then no one wants to have a tonne of fused wiring hanging around, so perhaps it's a good thing it's part of every engineering item.So I guess engineering goes far enough to ensure there aren't too many pieces but just enough.

I just want to clean up the sorting for a lot of these professions.What if Blacksmithing/Leatherworking/Tailoring had separate "tabs" at the top for all Plate/Mail/Leather/Cloth recipes? You could then sort them into slot sub-categories within each tab. Plate: +Chest, +Feet, +Hands... Mail: +Chest, +Feet, +Hands...What about Enchanting having a separate tab for enchants, so that you could then sort them into sub-categories? +Enchant Chest, +Enchant Boots, etc.Couldn't Alchemy break the Elixirs category down into separate Battle, Guardian, and Miscellaneous categories? What about Transmutes having their own "tab"?What if Jewelcrafting had a separate tab for all the cuts, instead of shoving everything into one giant list?

@loopI might be misunderstanding, but I think that interface exists. On the top right of the window is a filter. It can filter for "have materials" and "skill up" along with filtering the recipes. Blacksmithing, I can choose Weapon->1h sword->main hand.

I'm already aware of Advanced Tradeskill Window, but I've had it *lose* all my settings so often (over the last few years) and setting it up is such a time-consuming pain that I've given up on it.Don't really see why the default UI can't be more organized than it currently is.
