About ArkInventory

the FAQ is here

the wiki is here

to see how you need to setup sorting go here

to see how to setup rules go here

please ensure you have read those before you lodge a ticket at

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

    I also have this happening. It is also for only one of my characters and that character happens to also be my enchanter.

  • #3952

    Any chance of a MoP version sometime soon for those of us that are testing MoP Beta? 

  • #3953

    the current version works fine, just tick the option to use out of date mods

  • #3954

    It doesn't work "fine"

    It seems ArkInventory's latest update doesn't like to play nice with Scrap.  I don't know who's jurisdiction it is so I'll post a copy of the error message on both pages.

    my fault, will fix it soon

  • #3956

    Thanks.  Works fine now.

  • #3949

    I know Ark has the ability to show and sort the void storage in "offline mode" (click toggle location > click void storage), but is there a way to replace the default void storage window when I talk to the NPC?
    When I talk to the ethereal, I get the default window and no sorting at all, even though everything seems to be set up right and everything is sorted in the offline mode.

    Am I doing something wrong? Or is this not supported at this time? 

  • #3947

    This working on beta?

  • #3948

    Tried it today, working fine for me, no errors at all. rofl

  • #3940

    Hi there, Could you tell me where the character data for this addon is stored?  I looked in the WTF and didn't see anything for ArkInventory.  I renamed one of my toons and now her bags are reset.  >.<  I'd copied her original WTF over to the new name, which worked for the other addons, but not this one.

    Thanks for the wonderful add-on, been using it for years. :D  Really one of those can't-play-without-it addons.

  • #3941

    the saved variable file is global, not per server, so its in


  • #3955

    Thank you!

  • #3939
    1 bag icon?


    I love this add-on, I just use your basic tutorial settings and it's great for me. Is there a way to just have 1 bag icon instead of the 5 default ones when opening bags?


  • #3942

    i think you mean bars?  in edit mode the interface will always display as many as you have setup for bars per row, default is 5.  when displaying the window normally, empty bars are hidden by default so just dont assign anything to the other bars and they wont show up.
