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

    No clue for your first problem, Arkayenro might know...
    For the second one, it sometimes happens, I don't really know why and I didn't look into it but a simple /rl usually fixes it for me ;)

  • #3987

    The Periodic Table Set library given with this addon seems to be missing many files (set items for example, etc.). My knowledge in lua is almost zero, how do I use the latest version if I download it from ( ?

  • #3988

    as far as im aware you just unzip everything into the addons folder for the game, the lib is just another mod.  just make sure you enable it.

    so long as its kept up to date then that version will be used instead of any older versions other mods came with

    Thanks !

    2 other issues I'm facing :

    1) I applied  a sort method for my bags and my bank. In my bank, it has overriden most rules I had set up (but not all of them). In my bags, it stayed clean. I don't understand why, and I can't find a way to revert back...

    2) Say an item answers to both a custom category (used in the bank) and a rule (used in bags). When placed in the bank, it goes where it's supposed to, but in the bags, it remains in the system default bag. Is it working as intended ? Is there a workaround ?

    To give a specific example : I have a "Tier 11" rule (based on PTSet) and a "Tier 11" custom category (for belt, boots, bracers that aren't in the PTset but match the looks). These are used to sort stuff in my bank. I also have a "Tank armor" tt=("dodge","parry") rule to sort items in my bags. The tanking belt that goes with my Tier11 set, is part of the Tier11 custom category, and contains "dodge" in the tooltip. In the bank, it will correctly be placed with the Tier11 gear, but in my bags, it stays in the System Default bag instead of going among the Tank Gear.

  • #3981

    Is it just me or has this addon stopped working? I logged on today with the default WoW bags and couldnt get it to work. I had to uninstall and download another addon. 

    As far as I know there was no error, just stopped working.

    Any ideas? 

  • #3982

    Just signed in and it's completely broken for me too. Using bagnon (a sad substitute) until the fix comes in.

  • #3997

    Curseforge manages its repositories using Git and SVN so having different branches for a single project is absolutely normal and I believe wowmatrix users are the only one to have had that problem as it was probably wrongly tagged as release there, Curse didn't have that error and manual downloading... well if you miss the huge BETA in its name you probably shouldn't do it manually :P

  • #3986

    why?  because pets/mounts have been disabled in the mop beta (mounts will probably come back but most likely pets will be removed completely and other mods will deal with battle pets), and i seriously doubt people want to lose them on live.

    the files are specifically tagged as BETA and I dont upload to wowmatrix so i have no idea, you'd have to ask the people that run it how it stuffed up.

  • #3985

    Side note, I had too many issues with curse and use WoWMatrix, and it has a place to not load beta versions but somehow this Still got in.

  • #3984

    I'm sorry but why have the beta (That works ONLY in MoP) in the same feed as the older version? We can NOT be the only ones that have had this issue.

  • #3983

    did either of you download the beta version? that only works on the beta servers - it doesnt generate an error but it does state it when loading.


    if youre using the curse client make sure its set to release versions only for AI (on the live game), if you have the beta then its ok to set that to download betas

    a beta version is available (check the Other Downloads section) that will fix the battlepet issues, but please note that to be safe it will not load on the live servers, it will only run on the mop servers (TOC > 50000).

    In MoP beta, you can put tradeable pets back into their cage. ArkInventory doesn't like that:

    1x ArkInventory-3.02.95\ArkInventoryStorage.lua:3202: code failure: unknown class [battlepet] for object |Hbattlepet:57:1:3:155:12:10:0[Azurblauer Welpling]

    This completely screws AI - still shows sold items etc.

    You have to turn AI off, open you bags the old way, relearn the caged pet, then the error goes away.

  • #3977

    not sure if already asked here but I have 2 wow accounts in my battlenet. the inventory only shows itens for the current account. any way to show itens of all chars in both accounts? thanks.

  • #3979

    no, blizzard dont allow that to happen, accounts are totally isolated for mods
