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 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

    doesnt work at all, I get no errors, it just doesnt load, even the config window, like its not even there, downgrading till it works again.

  • #4199

    So we had this same problem. A fix for right now is to go back to : 3.03.10 -- that's a downgrade but it works... Good luck!!

    I just updated to 3.03.12-nolib and entered the game. BugSack tracked 93 unique lua errors on load, and ArkInv then says "failsafe kicked in". It won't even let me enter that line of code from above since the mod itself shuts down before I can do anything.

    I've written   /run ArkInventory.EraseSavedData( nil, ArkInventory.Const.Location.Token ) but it doesn't work... The configuration doesn't work too.

    EDIT: Ten minutes have passed and it works!!!!

    Issues with 3.03.12

    I updated ArkInventory (to 3.03.12) this morning and found that I had the following issues:

    * Bags were no longer being overridden by default ("b" toggled stock bags rather than AI bags)

    * If I went into /ai config and unchecked+rechecked "override" for bags, the first problem was fixed but then mailboxes no longer worked (clicking on a mailbox did nothing)

    Reverting back to 3.0.10 fixes it.

  • #4189

    I got the error as many got below, and ArkInventory didnt work at all.  I ran the command 

    /run ArkInventory.EraseSavedData( nil, ArkInventory.Const.Location.Token ) Had to exit game, and in again and all worked fine with 3.03.12
  • #4191

    Thanks, works great now!  Tongue out

  • #4188

    The fix here worked for me, as Ark wasn't working at all...
