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

    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

    Yeah, I've got the heirloom rule going, it doesn't separate the BoA's unless it's specifically an heirloom. Thanks for the add in next version! Woo hoo! Love this addon, couldn't live without it!

    Lost my configuration!

    I was messing with the profiles and accidentally lost my current bag configuration. What files should I restore to get my configurtion back? Please help! My bags are a mess :(.

  • #4390


    the game should have a bak file alreadty there that might be ok

  • #4391

    Thanks a lot!

  • #4383

    How do I turn off the new pet functions?  While I appreciate the effort, I already have two other addons reporting pets to chat (one of which I already don't want).  And one of them does it better by also reporting if the pet is an upgrade.  I suppose if you added that functionality I wouldn't need the other one, but otherwise this is just extra chat spam I don't need.  The tooltip on wild pets also isn't very helpfull, but it doesn't bother me as much.

  • #4385

    config > tooltips > battepet = disabled

    config > alerts > battlepet opponents = diabled

    theres no option to remove the item count on critter mouseovers (at least i dont think i added one) so i'll add that next release

  • #4397

    i've changed it to display all the details about your existing matching pets under the total so you have a better idea of what you already have.

  • #4380

    Long time user, one of the few addons I can't play without.

    With the newest .18 and I believe also with .16 (.15 and I think .17 worked)  when I use the Summon Mount keybind I always get a ground mount.  This is on a lvl 90 char in Pandaria.  I haven't tried other characters in locations that they could fly, but can if needed.

  • #4386

    right click on the ldb moun tobject, make sure flying isnt disabled.  if it is then it cant find the pandaria flight spell (wisdom on the four winds in your spell book)

  • #4384

    Maybe I'm crazy but now it's working for me.  Must have needed a relog or me poking around in the mount tab.

  • #4398

    ah, i hadnt realised it locked the entire thing out when you logged into another account on the same battlenet account.  i'll recode it so theyre no longer there as thats not what i though that was for, only having one account i dont notice when these things go screwy

  • #4394

    I was having the same problem when playing with multiple accounts and eventually traced the problem to this line:

    389 function ArkInventory.LDB.Mounts:Update( useMapZone )
    391         if not C_PetJournal.IsJournalUnlocked( ) then return end
    393         local companionType = "MOUNT"
    395         ArkInventory.LDB.Mounts.Cleanup( )
    397         ArkInventory.LDB.Mounts.IsFlyable( useMapZone )

    With that line in place, subsequent accounts were not properly calling the IsFlyable() logic and were locked to ground mounts only.   For now, I have commented out that one line which does not appear to have any drawbacks... (so far at least)

  • #4379

    I love this addon. A guildie I recommended it to said WoW! several times the first day he used it.

    My suggestion is an improvement to the "restack" functionality. The addon does a great job of consolidating items into the appropriate profession (herb/mine/scribe/gem) bag. It would be nice if the empty slots were consolidated. E.g.: bank alt does a restack and the empty slots are consolidated so a couple of bags are now empty and can be swapped out. Or my crafter wants to replace some general purpose questing bags with profession bags. (sigh milling)

    When I use arkinventory, I don't really care where the empty slots are. Except when I change bags. but then I really would prefer to have the empty slots consolidated.

  • #4381

    This functionality already exists.  If you have hidden the "Bag Changer" bar, click on the chest icon at the top of the ArkInventory window.  If you can see the bags at the bottom of the window, just right-click on the one you are wanting to swap out, and select "Empty".  This will attempt to move everything that is in that bag, out, so that it can be swapped.

  • #4378

    Wondering if with the recent changes to how you're handling mounts, I've missed something about how I can turn off some mounts and leave only a couple being randomized between? Even though I have set a bunch of mounts to "no" for ground, flying and water, I'm still having those mounts coming up. They don't move from ground/flying/water to unknown like they used to in the LDB listing.
