    Rare vanilla drops

    Below the are all the blue/green profession recipes drops from vanilla with a non-boss drop percentage of 0.001 (ie 0.1% or 1/10%) or less. I excluded items like which only drop from bosses.

    Undermine Journal or Remote Auction House. I'd like to get my hands on a modified RAH crawler.

    There's an extremely valuable lesson to learn from this list.

    The second section (Brightcloth/Ghostweave/Wizardweave) are recipes that were removed by blizzard. They then added the recipes to trainers. I hope this isn't their plan for some recipes in Cataclysm.

    Thanks for the sanity check there Sterling! I think there is some expression about the difference between wisdom and knowledge that would be appropriate here

    Looks like I can pull the trainer info from wowhead and further filter the list. Look for an update soon.

    I have one, although it's not really suitable for use by others (command line tool) that I threw together in java.

    What exactly would you want it to do?

    Mine, for example, watches the neutral AH for people transferring items. It checks once a minute (so it's likely to miss many, but if people are doing lots of transfers, it will catch some). It could very easy be set to autobuyout but I'm re-reading the TOS to see if that's permissable.

    I think I'm going to play around with Chrome extensions and build something. I'm not sure yet what I want it to do.
