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 each location for easy 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 or the date is a good idea), eg ArkInventory-3-01-09.lua, or ArkInventory-2013-12-28.lua

    What happened on github?


  • #5691

    they thought my account was a robot, it should be back now

  • #5684

    Items with the 'Upgrade Level' do not seem to shows counts across characters. Just wondering if this is intended or if im doing something wrong?

  • #5682

    I have a strange bug at the moment. Sometimes ArkInventory can't count right any more. For example: I'm pointing at a random object in my inventory and ArkInventory tells me that "Toon A" (the char I'm on with right now) has 17 pieces in his bag and 20 in the bank. "Toon B" has 40 pieces in the bank etc. BUT "Toon A" has 23 pieces in his bags. So ArkInventory tells me I have 17 in my bag while I'm pointing to a stack of 23. All other values are correct. This happens with different items every now and then. Normally this problem "fixes" itself in about 2 or 3 minutes, but why does it even happen? Until now it only happened with ArkInventory seeing not enough items, never had the case where ArkInventory saw more items than I actually had.

    Possible bug?

    First of all, this addon is amazing.  I have been using it for 5+ years and cannot play without it.  It is hands down my #1 all time favorite, and I run dozens of them.

    Now onto my issue.  At some point this week all of my customized settings just stopped working.  It is as if I had just downloaded the addon for the first time.  The same thing happened on my laptop, so I can only assume it isn't specific to me.  Everything is now piled into Category 1.  Has anyone else experienced this?

    I was out of town earlier this week, so my best guess is that the Tuesday maintenance broke it somehow.  I disabled all other addons but it still occurred, so I am comfortable ruling out an addon conflict.  It doesn't look like the addon itself has been updated since July, so we should be able to rule that out as well.   Just looking for a confirmation that I am not the only one suffering from Arkinventory withdrawal.  Thanks!

    i think it might be just you and your sv file got corrupted


  • #5676

    Love the addon! I've been away from wow for 2 years and came back a month ago -- glad to be back!  My Arkinventory has been giving me an issue since my return.  I have items organized by using 'edit mode' and for the most part everything looks good until there is a change to one of those stacks.  

    If I add or remove an item to a stack it throws that entire stack (and the extra item if I'm separating) back into the general portion of my bags.  Eventually it will update and place those items back into their designated area but it coule be 2-3 minutes.  Hitting refresh doesn't help either.

    I've fiddled around with settings (config -> settings -> Window: Sorting) and tested 'on window open' and 'Instant' but neither fixed the issue.  Thanks in advance!

    you may have new items enabled and assigned to a bar, that will shove anything the game has flagged as new into that bar regardless of any other assignment.  if the item has a soft pulsing white internal border then its new

  • #5680

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do have new items assigned to specific bars.  The issue is when I have a stack in that bar and I get a new item of that stack, it pulls it out of that bar and places it in the general stack.  It stays there for several minutes, then goes back to its assigned bar.

    In the past it would just put that new item in the stack that was in its own bar without throwing that stack back into the general area.

  • #5672

    Is there a way to increase the number of slots per row?  I tried changing the "Per Row" under the Settings>Bars submenu, but that didn't do anything.  I dragged it to 1, nothing changed - dragged it to 40, and it popped back to 16 in the text line under the slider.To better explain, when I open my bank, each row has 16 slots on it.  I'd like to increaase it from 16 slots to possibly 20 or 24 or higher.  I seem to remember being able to do this at some point, but I can't find it anymore.

    Thank you.  I feel stupid for not remembering that.  It's not like I haven't been using Ark for over six years or anything.  lol

    ArkInventory - Depositing Reagents

    I open my guild bank. I click on the Reagent Bag and then click  "deposit all reagents". At that point maybe one or two items go in or none at all. I then have to physically move each of the items from my bag into the reagent section of the guild bank. I do have the current version. Any suggestions? Thanks! :)

  • #5673

    This is probably an issue with guild banks in general.  When I try to put a lot of stuff in my GBank really fast, it just suddenly stops putting stuff in and I have to slowly put them in.  I think it's either a restriction Blizz made or it's just the "nature of the beast" of that feature in WoW.

  • #5668

    How do i move reagents automatically? i do not see a button for it ans TSM isn't popping up either.
