I have the addon Ackis Recipe List. It will scan each of your tradeskills and tell you which recipes you are missing. It will then show a very simple list of where to get the missing recipes. I find it very handy when chasing down my last few missing recipes.
You are absolutely right, it is awesome and should be mentioned along with the Profiler's ability to track recipes :)
This is true. However, some of them are categorized in the DB as zone-wide drops (the NR cape enchants too) and reveal the specific mobs when clicked on. Hard to describe it either way without confusing some readers :/ I've made the description a bit wordier to cover both bases.
Great list, thanks! I only have one suggestion:I know the Engineering list isn't intended to be comprehensive, but I think the Field Repair Bot 74A is worth adding because it's required to make Jeeves, which will be on the to-do list of almost any engineer. It's also acquired in an unusual way, not being from a trainer, drop, or vendor. The plans for FRB74 are picked up from the floor of BRD near Golem Lord Argelmach.
Fishing: The fishing contest days are backwards. Northrend/Kalu'ak is on Saturdays, Stranglethorn is on Sundays.

Another great guide! Thanks guys! (keep them coming!)
The BC alchemy recipes are a royal pain. I slaughtered Arcanists for about six hours to get the Major Arcane Protection recipe to drop. Major Holy wasn't too bad, since I was killing those mobs anyway while working on Ogri'la rep. The worst is Major Frost, though. Running all of Mana-Tombs, over and over, hoping the Nexus Prince drops it this time....just awful. I still don't have it and kind of doubt I ever will before I burn out. Wish there were a way to port in like in BRD. WoWHead comments seem to suggest that heroic mode increases the chances substantially but still no go.Meanwhile, despite doing lots of BC potions/flasks/elixirs (and post-BC ones), I have yet to get a single discovery from it. I guess they're still dropping but the RNG just hates me.
Very nice guide.Ackis Recipe List is a good help.Another nifty helper, is Recipe Known, which will let you see in a glance, if the recipe is relevant.Recipe Radar is still a great help in pinpointing the relevant recipes in your current zone. Unfortunately it is also a bit outdated, as the list of recipes and their locations is pre cata. Needs a new maintainer.A real money saver for those who frequent the AH, is Swindler Preventer, which will show known vendor prices in the tooltip.
Recipe: Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops is still available for new players who purchase the recipe from another player who completed the quest-line (to the point required to get that recipe). It is not BoP thus it can be bought and sold.A little note about this recipe, due to the overall rarity and desirability of it, I have seen it sell for up to 100,000g on my server. It was the highest valued item in my Auctionator price history, coming in at about 12k more than Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger.
The enchanting pattern Enchant Weapon - Crusader still drops in the game. You have to get it from the Scarlet Archmages at Tyr's Hand prior to finishing the quest to kill the leader in the Chapel and phase the area.
The Archaeology achievement for the guild cannot be dones with 3 people i.e. a few. Research projects only count towards this if they are new to the player, i.e. if the player has already dug up an item, it won't contribute if he/she digs ithat same item again!
