About ArkInventory

the FAQ is here

when posting a comment about an error do not include the list of addons, just the actual error and trace is fine.

AI's display windows are built from "virtual bars", you assign categories to bars so that items in that category are displayed on the specific bars you want. There is no limit to the number of bars you can have inside a window but obviously you only have so much screen real estate before it becomes "too many".

AI uses several methods to assign a default category to an item such as what professions you have, tooltip scanning, basic type/subtype and PeriodicTable. You then assign those categories to a virtual bar.

You can also over-ride the default category by creating a rule that matches either a single or multiple items.


  • unlimited number of bars (there are practical limits though before your screen becomes full)
  • assign items to a category of your choice (overrides the default assignment)
  • assign categories to the bar of your choice
  • configurable bars per row
  • configurable width
  • separate keybindings for bag, keyring and bank viewing

Key Bindings:
Press ESCAPE to bring up the blizzard menu
click on Key Bindings
scroll down to ArkInventory
bind the keys you want to use

See ReadMe.txt and VersionHistory.txt for further details

Beta Versions:

ensure you make a backup copy of your saved variables file before installing a beta version - you normally cannot revert back to the release version without that backup. your saved variable file is normally located in World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\yourwowaccountname\SavedVariables\ArkInventory.lua

if you have the curse client set to download beta versions then it is your responsibility to ensure you have adequate backups of your saved variables file - do not complain if you lose them or they get screwed up because you installed a beta version, its what beta versions tend to do.

a simple way to back it up is to just do a copy and paste then rename the new file (using the version number of AI is a good idea), eg ArkInventory-3-01-09.lua

    hey is there some way to see the guildbank log with the addon? i cant find a button for that :/
  • #2596
    right click on a vault tab in the changer window) and select the mode you want
  • #2600
    hurray! You also added the info tab and I just noticed. Thanks!
  • #2609
    lol, does no one read the patch notes?
  • #2592
    All of the rules are broken and the sort options don't seem to be working. I have read your how to for the new version and I still don't have my old functionality.

    I will be looking for a replacement as I relied on the rule feature to sort my gear and items by type.
  • #2597
    well fix the rules and set a sorting option. will take you all of 5 minutes to do it.
  • #2589
    ArkInventory_Ammo does not show ammo for guns, can fix that?
  • #2590
    it was working on my hunters gun the last time i logged into him.

    what weapon do you have?
  • #2591
    With all guns that I used.
    With bows and crossbows all ok, but with gun there is only gun icon on bar without any text.
    P.S. I'm using russian localization.
  • #2598
    ah, might have something to do with the russian client language but im not sure, the code is supposed to be matching against internal blizzard strings so it should work regardless of client language.
  • #2586
    How in the name of GOD do i change the size of my bags?
    As without this addon you simply drag a new (bigger) bag to the slot you want and hey-presto, its sorted.
    As i can't even see what bags i have equipped i cant do it o.O

    If there's no resolve i'll have to get rid of it which sucks cuz i like this addon ^^
  • #2587
    you unhide the bag changer frame (the one with all your bags, the one you hid) by clicking on the icon in the title bar and just swap bags like normal.

    guess you'll just have to keep using the sucky mod now. oh well.
  • #2581
    aborted scan of bag 1, location 1 [Bag] size returned was 0
    aborted scan of bag 2, location 1 [Bag] size returned was 0
    aborted scan of bag 3, location 1 [Bag] size returned was 0
    aborted scan of bag 4, location 1 [Bag] size returned was 0

    I have all Portable Hole 24 slot bags. How can I fix this? my bags won't update unless I toggle edit mode.

  • #2582
    disable the alert

    enable either on open or instant depending on when you want it to sort
  • #2579
    I can't add new bars no matter how many times I try, what's the problem?
