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.


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.

WoWace forum thread


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.

    Re: AdiBags Bug

    Bug: Currently, copying from a profile does not copy the scale set for each bar.

    EDIT: I could only reproduce this once.

    Feature Request: A global scaling option.

    As already mentioned, I'd apreciate it if the items would get those quest-icons on the items back, they were really useful. Nowadays, when I now which items are starting a quest, it might be unnecessary - but with the new addon there will be unknown quests, provided by items. :3
    Next thing: the borders are really thin.. I thought it would be as it has been before the patch, when I change the opacity - but I couldn't see any difference.

    I love Adibags, so I hope these small things will change soon - or even become the way they used to be before. :3

    getting that error.

  • #611

    Hey, could we get the thicker item quality borders back? and the quest icons on the items that start a quest? Keep up the good work :)

  • #610

    I have just installed this addon and it feels great. I would have one question though. Will you ever support Masque (old: Button Facade)? Would make this melt into my UI even more.

    Thanks for this addon

  • #608

    Thanks so much for getting the item totals on tooltips again!

  • #609

    thats not adibags, altoholic probably lol

  • #606

    First off Thanks for the amazing addon! I used bagnon and onebag but this one definitely takes the cake! Thanks for you hard work.

    Secondly, I am not getting any tooltips in the Reagant bank. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it a bug or just something not implemented yet?

  • #607

    No tooltips on Reagent Bank for me too...

    Apart from that, this Addon is amazing!

  • #605

  • #603

    Hello, after the recent update I noticed that sorting now requires me to close and open bag to see all the items again. I liked it before how when I hit the sort button it would organize my bags and I could still see all the items without having to close and reopen my bags to refresh all the icons. 

    Could you also add an option to merge the bank and reagent bank together in one bank. I liked how you had it before where everything was one big bank. But I still want raw materials to go into reagent bank first if it can be put in there. Hope you can help. Thanks

  • #601

    Some feedback :

    • No BoE filter, unless Blizzard added an API to have this information without scanning the item tooltip.
    • I know auto-sorting can cause lag. This is because bag sorting is called too often. Working on it.
    • New Item tracking changed: I switched over the Blizzard API. I do not control (nor know) exactly how it works. However, I know it does not work for bank and items coming from bank or mailbox.
  • #600


    Is it possible to get a filter for BoE's ?
    At the moment, it seems like all gear is in one bag (BoE and BoP items that is).
    I would love to see the possibility to have BoE in one separate bag and all the BoP items in another.
    So I can easily see what I can sell and what I cannot sell.

    PS. I love AdiBags. It's basically perfect :)
