About ArkInventory

the FAQ is here

the wiki 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

    Broken in 4.2 any ETA on an update?
  • #3732
    probably in about 8 hours. i need to get home from work, patch, then update the mod, then upload it.
  • #3728
    If you want it to stop spamming you about the keychain, in ArkInventory.lua change line 1467 from true to false, and comment out (using --) lines 1841 and 1842.
  • #3726
    It's working for me in 4.2, though it will eventually need an update now that there is no longer a keyring.
  • #3724
    How can i reset it? to reset all profiles and etc..cause when im on an item is says that i have more item of those to another char that i have deleted him
  • #3731
    Log in, open your bag, go to the switch character menu (top right corner), mousevoer the character you want to delete and in the menu that opened, press delete
  • #3723
    for some reason, the money log on the guild bank wont show the gains from the "Cashflow" perk.... everything else is displayed, but to see those lines i have to deactivate the addon....
  • #3721
    Best Addon ever!
    Thanks a lot for all your work!
  • #3719
    Good question here guys!

    How can I filter in one Bar only items associated to some equipment set ?

  • #3729
    Create a rule containing :
    outfit() which will include all outfit items
    or outfit( "SetName" ) where SetName is... the name of the set to filter :P
  • #3718
    I have issue with not being able to right item to move them from the guild bank to my bag. Some times it will work but exssively slow. Then other times it just does not work at all
  • #3717
    The menu's are freakin' HUGE like they stretch right across my screen
  • #3730
    Change the scale in order to make the bag a less respectable size, or if you're talking about bag width, it can be set using the number of columns in the configuration of AI.
  • #3714
    hi, I have an issue with the data saving... When I want to look what there is on my other characters, I don't have all the items. On some characters I get the whole bag saved but fot the most part, I have only a tiny part of it.

    I installed AI, log a character, opened the bag, then log ouf, chose an other, and when I tried to look at the other's bag, I got less than the half of items I had...

    Have you any idea to solve this ?
  • #3715
    Oups I forgot, I tried without configuring AI and it works fine so ... is there a problem with using 20 tabs ?
