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.

    Is there a way to turn off auto-deposit reagents?

    Feature Request - Quick Section Visibility

    Love your addon -- I've been using it as long as I can remember.  I was just selling stuff at the auction house and was struggling to find the herbs I wanted to sell.  That's when I realized there's a potential feature.

    Click Section Visibility
    - Right Click on a category -- All other sections hide except the one selected

    If a similar feature already exists, please point the way. :)

  • #659

    Hey.  When using adibags and when I close them, I get this massive lag (fps). Everything freezes for about 1 second then resumes back to normal.

    I've disabled and all that, and it is only when adibags is enabled.  Any idea as to why this is the case?

  • #660

    It's the "Auto-sort" feature.  Disable that and you'll be all good.

    I reported this as a bug long ago, but I do believe that there is no way around the lag (the bags need to sort, and that takes time), so I've personally just disabled the feature.


    I'd like to take this opportunity to renew my request and restate my interest in having regular bank and reagent bank display in the same frame -- or at least display at the same time, so I can see everything I have without having to switch windows (read: open another bag).

    Thanks!!!!!!!! =)

  • #657

    Just a quick suggestion, would there be some way to enable sorting by profession in the reagents tab? Just with WoD Im picking up all kinds of different profession mats which get in the way of finding the ones im looking for .

    Love your work :)

  • #654

    Getting an error forcing me to disable Adibags and reload UI whenever I try to disenchant something...  :(  

  • #655

    Well, without the error message, I can't fix anything.

    Ok, sorry I've never posted about an error before, I've always just lived with them (for any addon)...  I'll try the buggrabber and see if I can recreate it.  Thanks for the quick response!  :)

  • #648

    Is there any chance you could look into letting us filter which items get automatically placed in the reagent bank when that feature is active? Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  • #647

    In line 306 of ItemLevel.lua the comma at the end is missing. Just add it and it will fix the issue

    [90]  = { 458, 580 },

  • #645

    Great addon!

    Good replacement for baggins (whitch dont work on ru locale for a long time)!

    Got 3 wishes:

    1. Section "Matter by known proffessions".

    2. Option for layouter:  groups only horisontal (disable vertical grouping, new group = new line).

    3. Fix the "Gold" section displaying. (see screenshot).

    I do not see what is broken with your currency display.

  • #658

    In all the time I have been using the addon, I can't believe I never found that, I still think thats what the original comment was about, perhaps they had not found the option either.  I have found a lot of the other features, such as custom groups for items and such, but I always missed that, thanks for pointing me to it.

    Not certain, but I think its the sheer number of curriences.  Perhaps they would like an option to choose which curriencies display, after all, while we might have all those curriences, we aren't always concerned with all of them.

    Like right now, I would rather just see garrison resources, apexis shards, and the new seals for bonus rolls, I am no longer concerned with Timeless Coins, Warforged Seals, Lucky Charm/Coin whatever they were, I have never really cared about cooking awards, etc...

    You can turn off which currencies you track already.
