About ArkInventory

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 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

    I noticed this addon prints the pet names and rarity to chat frame and also a [unknown] if I haven't cught the pet yet. I love this. however its still missing one little thing and I wonder if you can/want to add this at some point. I cant from ArkInventory tell what rarity of the pet I got is so I dont know if it is rarity upgrade. Check the addon "Battle Pet - Quality Notifier" to see what I mean. Also I can't find a setting to turn your notification off so if I use that addon instead I get double the info. Is there a way?

  • #4409

    3.03.19 will print your existing pet links next to the ones youre about to battle if the quality is equal or higher

  • #4403


    I think the recent changes broke the tracking element.

    I always use the /ai track item command for my gathering profs and find it invaluable.
    Recently the display (in Bazooka bar) show the small wow icon and a count that never moves.
    If I use the right click menu and add/remove the item it shows the correct number in bags but never changes (e.g. gather more of the item herb)

    Would be great if this could be checked and fixed :) 

  • #4408

    sorry, i missed this, will try to remember to check (i dont really use this feature much)

  • #4401

    First off, thank you for this addon, it's quickly become one of my favorites. With that said, did you disable something? One of my addons (and I'm pretty sure it's this one) also showed items I had in my guild bank. This was really important to me because I have a personal guild bank I use for storing all of my extra stuff and it was nice to be able to see how much of the item I had in that guild.

  • #4407

    not that i know of, mines still working.  check the tooltip settings for item counts, make sure the vault option is enabled.

  • #4413

    I don't see a "Vault" under Item Counts in the Tooltips section. But I'm not refering to the vault (paid extra storage) bank, I'm refering to an actual guild bank (I started a guild on one of my toons soely for the guild bank storage). I also have my other toons in an actual guild, I don't see either guild bank showing up on my list anymore, only what my toons have in their bags and in their personal banks. Under Item Counts what I have checked is Enabled, Faction Only, Guild Bank, and Show Tabs (Self Only is the only one *not* checked). Also, I do have the updated version (according to the Curse Client)

    EDIT: OK, Disreguard the above statement. After backing out of the settings I now see my guild bank info. I guess I just had to go into the settings for them to be recognised.. oh well, atleast it's back, thanks.

    Please include a way to turn off the battlepet chat text at the start of fights. I appreciate your efforts to provide another benefit but this is information I don't want in my chat box. Thanks.

  • #4406

    its already in there, check the config > messages/alerts section

    For a few days now, I get this error every time I log in, the first time I open my bag:

    I'm assuming no one else is having trouble since I'm the first one to mention it, so I'm not sure where to figure out what's wrong.

  • #4399

    you have version 30316, you need to upgrade to 30317 or higher

  • #4402

    I apologize, the Curse Client said I was updated!

  • #4393

    I've looked all over and can't seem to find any info on it, even tried making my own rule... But is there anyway to separate account bound stuff?

  • #4396

    only checking for soulbound and a quality of 7 (heirloom) i think

    i've added a category and rule functions for it in the next version

  • #4410

    i forgot to test these, but theyre in 3.03.19
