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

    With no config changes whatsoever, it stopped as soon as I hit 100 and then tried again.

    Maybe it didn't have a handler for "You can't use that untill 100, dummy" or something.

  • #5212

    Hey, using your addon for years - cannot imagine playing wow without it honestly. Thank you so much for making and especially maintaining it all those years!

    I have an issue with the reagent bank. I have one bank bar for 'System-Reagents' and for 'Emtpy-Reagents'. The problem is, that I would then expect ArkInv to put everything from the reagents bank into this bar - but it does not. It only shows the empty slots and the rest is in bar1. Bar1 does not have anything enabled for it beside 'system-default'. Why does it not work as I expect?

    Thank you

  • #5218

    hardly any items are actually classified as that, if you want all the stuff that would go into the reagent bank you'd probably need a tooltip rule to pickup the Crafting Material (the line in blue)

  • #5227

    You have options to show bags1-9 in a bar. Could you also add an option for the reagent bag? This way it would force all of those items into the bar I want without having to hassle with tooltips and stuff.

  • #5211

    Is there a problem with the item age? I can activate it in the options and enter cutoff minutes, but it's not showing up. Also the clear button is greyed out. Anyone else having this issue?

  • #5209

    please fix this addon keeps freezing everyime i open the frame

  • #5210

    please lodge a ticket with some more information in it as im not getting the issue so cannot troubleshoot it

    have you disabled every other mod and tested arkinventory by itself? does it still freeze then?

  • #5205

    is there a simple way to determine the type/subtype of an item? I don't see any "System" catagory for fish.

  • #5207

    turn on edit mode and click on the item, go down to debug and it will show all the item info

    Just curious if ArkInventory is working on support for the Reagent Bank Tab and support for the "Deposit all Reagents" button in the default UI. I couldn't find it in Ark and It's bothersom to disable ark so i can deposit reagents with a one button click.

  • #5204

    I dug Deeper in your comments (your comments are much more active on this mod than many other mod developers. kudos!) and found the Regeant bank tab support. For those who may ahve the same questions (maybe add the reagent bit to your addon descriiption? It's kind of obscure (i never have bag changer active for instance, and would never have found this without reading your comments):

    Reagent banktab is located in your ArkinventoryBankui. you can see it by turning on bag changer (treasure chest icon in the top right of arkinventoryui). you can then hover over your bank bags and see "Reagent Bank". Right Click the bag and click deposit all Reagents.

    I just logged in to leave this comment. I used Arkinventory months ago and now started playing again and I really dislike the way bags are being handled. Now suddenly my main bag is all over the show. I did not want to do this but Ill have to look for an alternative :(

  • #5201

    feel free to use any mod you like, im not overly fussed if people dont use arkinventory

    if you do want some help though then feel free to create a ticket but please put in more details than "all over the shop" (screenshots are helpful for these type of issues)
