About AdiBags

AdiBags displays the content of your bags in one view, distributed into several sections using smart filters.

It is heavily inspired by Nargiddley’s Baggins.

Configuration is available through Blizzard addon panel, /adibags chat command or right-clicking on the LDB plugin.

Important note about localized filters: some filters rely on translations from LibBabble-Inventory-3.0 so if some of them behave strangely in your locale, please take a look at the library translation status.

About patch 6.0.2

Blizzard has introduced a lot of new inventory features with the patch 6.0.2. I (Adirelle, AdiBags’ author) have absolutely no control over the way these built-in features work. It is all or nothing: either AdiBags uses a feature as is, either I have to code it myself. I had some of these features built into AdiBags in the past, but this was clumsy, using the API in a way that it was not meant to, and ultimately buggy for some users. So I decided to remove my code in favor of the built-in ones, even if it meant a minor degration of the original feature. If Blizzard improves some of these features in the future, AdiBags will automatically benefit from these improvements.

So, in short:

  • AdiBags now uses the built-in “new itemAPI, though it only detects looted/crafted/reward items. I added another module to highlight you what moves in bags to compensate for the loss of full item detection.
  • AdiBags now uses the built-in “sort bags“ feature. It may cause a spike of lag but works very quickly and does the job right.
  • AdiBags fully supports the reagent bank, including the built-in “deposit all reagents” feature. I know it moves enchanters’ velum to the reagent tab, but hopefully Blizzard will fix this.


Important notice: since v1.6.12-beta-1, AdiBags embeds BugGrabber, an error catching addon. Please check the error is really about AdiBags before reporting them here. I suggest installing BugSack to catch the errors.

Please report any bug or error using the wowace bug tracker (your Curse account works there). The comments section below is not meant to report and track bugs. I won’t reply to bug reports in the comment section anymore.

Some words about submitting bug reports:

  • I do not care about “it doesn’t work, fix it!” messages. I need to know how it failed and a way to reproduce the bug so I can test it and make sure I fix it.
  • Bug reports are not in the “fire and forget” kind of things. I may have to ask you some details.
  • Please check all existing tickets and the “known issues” section below before submitting new ones. Duplicate reports will be rejected on sight.

Most of these features may be configured. Check out the configuration panel ! (using the /adibags chat command or clicking on the bag icon, you have any LDB display)

  • Smart filters are used to distribute items into several sections, including:
    • Item sets of the Blizzard’s gear manager (one section per set),
    • Junk items (whitelist and blacklist available),
    • Quest items,
    • Equipment (items your character can wear),
    • Sections based on item category: trade goods, consumables, recipes, ...
    • Manual filtering (drag and drop items on section header, or add new section from the configuration panel),
    • Free space.
  • Smart item sorting inside each section.
  • Smart section layout; change the setting “Automatic layout update” to control the frequency of updates.
  • Track new items; use the [N] button resets the “new” flag.
  • Display slot type.
  • Bag sorting: left-click on the [S] button; right-click toggles auto-sorting, which sorts the bag on close.
  • Hide some sections, using the [V] button.
  • Name-based search.
  • Equipped bags (click on the bag icon in the top left corner),
  • Display character money in the backpack.
  • Display character tokens in the backpack.
  • LDB data source, displaying free space.
  • Two bag placement modes (choose one in the configuration panel):
    • Anchored: the bags expand from an anchor towards the center of the screen. The anchor can be unlocked and moved.
    • Manual: move the bags by dragging their title.

Separate modules

I have written two separate modules for AdiBags:

Tips & tricks

  • you can create your own sections using the “manual filter” in filter configuration. You can then drag and drop items on section titles to reassign them ; this works for any section.
  • if you want to highlight new items without putting them into a specific section, edit the “new items” filter priority to put it at the end of the filter list.

Known issues

  • New items detection does not work like it did before 1.8: Ihis is normal. I switched to the NewItems API that Blizzard has added in patch 6.0. This API does not work for bank nor items coming from the bank or the mailbox, but it does not having the timing issue my code had.
  • Opening the bank or closing my bag cause lag spike: this is an know issue with Blizzard bag sorting. For now, it is called every time you close your bag with auto-sorting enabled. I am working on a solution to sort bags only if their content actually changed.
  • Protected action/addon blocked error: they sometimes happen with AdiBags. Even though my effort, I can not reproduce these. Blizzard taint reports are very buggy, often blaming the wrong addon. As such they are pretty much useless.
  • Please note that prospecting, disenchanting or milling can create new items (e.g. that were not in your inventory yet). This can cause the whole bag to be updated. In this case, the items that were under your mouse cursor may move around. There is no easy solution for this so be cautious.

Things that likely will not be implemented

Anything else than the existing “all-in-one” views

AdiBags has been built around, and optimized for, the idea of the “all-in-one” view. Doing anything would require to redesign big parts of the addons, especially the layout code that is quite complex at the first place.

Anything that requires to scan item tooltips

Tooltip scanning is quite CPU-consuming and above all requires asynchronous programming, since item tooltips would not always be available at the time AdiBags should use them. This would raise the complexity of bag filtering be an order of magnitude and turn AdiBags into a CPU hog.

Some examples what requires to scan the item tooltips:

  • detecting the kind and state of binding: unbound, soulbound, bind-on-pickup, bind-on-equip…
  • detecting already known spells/pets/recipes or faction/race/level/skill/class restrictions ; basically any “red text” in the tooltip.

Guild bank

AdiBags presents you a nice view of your bags but actually they are in a complete mess. With AdiBags, there is no need and no way to tidy up the items in the actual bags. Guilds usually try to keep their bank tidy. What would happen if some people in a guild used AdiBags for the guild bank ? Well, they would mess up the guild bank content and people NOT using AdiBags would have to deal with that mess. I can hear the screams from there. So that is why I will not implement guild bank.

Alt bags and bank

AdiBags is not an alt bags/bank viewer. If you want to keep track of what your alt owns, I suggest using an addon like BagSync.

Full bag skinning

Basic skinning is available using LibSharedMedia-1.0: you can choose the bag font, background and border, as well as the color.

Comprehensive in-game filter/section editor

According to my experience with Baggins, comprehensive editor is awful to write as an author and awful to use as an user. Hence I focus on creating filters that have a smart built-in behavior and only a few options. I try to avoid the 20% of features that would require 80% of development effort.

    Please allow us to have the new thin quality highlights!

    Some people might still like the old ones, but I always thought they were too much and covered up the artwork.  I love the new ones Blizzard made!  You fixed it with the new highlights then changed it back (or so it says in the changelog).  I'd like to get the new fixes but I love the new Blizzard highlights.  Can there be an option?  Thanks for all your hard work!!

  • #633

    Quality highlighting for the bank is not working for certain types of items.

    So far I've noticed head, shoulders, chest, wrist, and all weapons do not have any quality highlighting when they are in the bank.

    There seems to be an issue currently where if you have a character that has not yet unlocked Void Storage, AdiBags prevents the Void Storage window from displaying the prompt to unlock for 100 gold.  To get the prompt, you have to disable AdiBags... and sometimes you have to take it a step further and reload UI after disabling AdiBags for the prompt to appear.

    This seems somewhat similar to what was originally happening with the new Reagents tab after the first update to support 6.0.2.

    Once Void Storage has been unlocked, AdiBags works fine with it otherwise.

    seems theres still a display issue with the bank tab on my end at least. i mouse over ghost iron and it tells me its groomsblood, mouse over the jade sword and it tells me its copper. i updatred to the latestr one too. 

  • #630

    Sorry for the weird display in 1.7.7. I experimented Masque support and it turned out it did not work well out of the box.

  • #627

    Any plans to display the reagent bag alongside the bank bags as a separate bag or section? Kinda makes me sad to have to tab between them to see what I have in there.

  • #634

    I cannot reset "new items" in my bank. There's no "N" button on the bank and disabling and reenabling the filter doesn't work either.


     This is a dope idea too…

    Thanks for continuing to work on this amazing addon!

    So right now, the tooltips on the reagent tab are incorrect, they are coming up with things from the main bank tab.

    Also, and I know this isnt really your fault, but man... blizzard's "new item" tracking sucks.  I miss the old adibags way!  Things keep popping out of "New" and going into other categories seemingly every time I open the inventory.  So irritating 8(   I dont suppose you could put an option in to switch between the old style tracking of new items and the blizzard version?

  • #624


    Could we possibly have a way to (optionally) view the reagent bank and the normal bank at the same time, whether from within the same window, or even with a second window?

    With all due respect (and there is a lot of respect; I absolutely love this "can't live without it" addon), I feel like one of the most important features of Adibags is being able to view all of our "actual" bags and bank windows in one frame.  With the addition of the Reagent bank, I feel like we've gone backwards, adding another window we have to access.

    Thank you =)

  • #623

    I love this addon but I'm still not seeing any tooltips in the reagent bank.

    Also you reverted back the old quality highlight?  Why?  Sorry, but I like the new one WAY better.  I didn't update because I read that in the comments.  Can you add an option?

    Thank you for your hard work.

    Since the last couple of updates I'm experiencing an issue where new items are sometimes removed from the New section without my permission (have not clicked reset new, have not sorted, have not logged out).  Sometimes this happens after looting, sometimes it happens after zoning.  Does not appear to be happening to only one type of item, have seen it happen to all of armor/trade goods/misc/jewelry.


    Other than this my only real gripe is the lack of tooltips in the reagent bank.  Still the best bagmod, hope this rocky start to 6.0 is behind you soon!

  • #621

    I'd like to suggest a small (hopefully) new feature.

    Import/export of manual filters.The ability to transfer manual filters from one profile to another one by one. That would be great.

    Anyhow, great addon, keep up the good work. And: thanks!

  • #619

    Since the reagent bank patch addition to AdiBags i've been noticing that none of the mats in the reagent bank show their item names - meaning sometimes i have to pull mats out just to find out what it is. Is this possible to fix in upcoming update?

  • #617

    Is it possible to filter what  gets auto-deposited for the reagent bank? For example, I'm an enchanter, and I don't want Enchating Vellums to get auto deposited, because you can't use those from the reagent bank.

  • #618

    AdiBags uses Blizzard's deposit feature so I cannot change anything, but this will hopefully get fixed by Blizzard since it annoys most enchanters.
