About BankStack

BankStack is the leading cause of things moving in your bags and bank.


  • sorts your inventory, bank, or guild bank
  • fills incomplete stacks in your bank with items from your inventory
  • compresses your bags by filling incomplete stacks within them
  • puts a chicken in every pot, and pot in every chicken

Quick command reference:

/bankstack : show configuration
/sort : rearrange your bags
/sort bank : rearrange your bank
/stack : fills stacks in your bank from your bags
/stack bank bags : fills stacks in your bags from your bank
/stack {group1} {group2} : fills stacks in group2 from group1
/compress : merges stacks in your bags
/compress bank : merges stacks in your bank
/compress {group} : merges stacks in group
/fill : fill empty slots in your bank from your bags
/fill {group1} {group2} : fill empty slots in group2 from group1

In the /bankstack configuration you'll find sections for "ignore" and "groups". Here's a bit of elaboration on the syntax for those parts.

You need, regrettably, to hear about bag ids first. Each bag has a number which addons use to interact with it.

Your bags are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 Your bank is: -1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

To ignore slot 1 of bag 0, the first slot in your backpack, go to the "ignore" panel and put "0 1" into the textfield and click "okay".

Groups are similar. Let's say that you're a herbalist, and only want to do some things to your herb bags.

You could put this into the "groups" textbox: herbs 3,4 Or this: bankherbs 10,11

You now have two custom groups, herbs and bankherbs. Presumably you keep massive herb bags in slots 3 and 4, and are making lots of money from this because you have the two most expensive bank slots as well (10 and 11).

Having created these groups you could:

/stack herbs bankherbs

Which would fill up stacks in your bank herb bags from stacks in your personal herb bags.

Predefined groups are: bank, bags, guild, all, and a few more. Click the "list" button in the groups config to see these.

There's an experimental faster guild-bank mode which you can enable by typing:

/script BankStack.db.conservative_guild = false

(This mode may not work well yet. We'll see.)

    I adore this addon and I wish so much that the guild bank sort feature would finally be fixed.

    No matter what processing delay I select for guild (I've tried them all, multiple times at 1), it sorts a few peices, stops and soons gives me an error that says, "BankStack: Confusion. Stopping."

    It USED to work (and how I miss it!).. but something on Blizz's side or in an update to the addon went amiss and broke it.

    If I try to sort with "cautious guild" selected, the only thing it seems to change is first giving me an "Internal guild error" before giving the "BankStack: Confusion. Stopping" error.

    I've tried other addons (Genie and Mr. Plow) in hopes of something similar yet none of them seem to have this exact feature which sorts across all tabs. Please fix! :(

    i agree i used this addon every single day i've had it installed but the guild feature is also broke for me as the other poster stated.

    i've tried every single settings to try to get this to work once again with the guild but either it work's and it's really really slow or it get's a error and stop's.

    the sort bag/bank features work for me only thing is the guild feature and i miss it terribly also!

    big fan of your addon and appreciate the work you put into it and hope it get's fixed!

  • #264

    Yea, we all miss the guild sorting feature. I'm prretty sure most of us originally found this addon to sort guild banks, however I don't think it's the author's fault for it not working anymore. Blizzard introduced changes that in terms introduced lag between the server and client. No idea why blizzard did this... I guess they needed resources else where and throttled our guild banks. Nonetheless, we do need a fix for this... a way to override the auto stop function perhaps?

  • #258

    Would it be possible to send a specific item type to a specific group? IE, define bag 4 as your "Cloth" bag, and then send all cloth to it on sort? Another could be a "Quest" bag, and so on.

    I've set this myself by having it simply ignore my last bag and sort those items out myself, but I'd love a simpler solution.

  • #260

    In fact, to demonstrate the general easiness of it:

    If you caused that bit of lua to run, you'd have a new slashcommand `/movecloth` which would work like `/movecloth 0,1,2,3 4` to move all cloth from bags 0,1,2,3 to bag 4.

  • #259

    Internally it's already doing something similar to that. The only problem is that it's not actually exposed to you through some sort of helpful UI.

  • #257

    would be nice to see a update so WoW does not say its out of date anymore, also does anyone know how to make it so the hearthstone for example is the first or last in the sort order?

    idk why but i always liked to sort my bag starting at the bottom & i always like my heathstone being the very first 1 so i can find it faster

    ty for this wonderfull addon its got my + & fav

    i just started using Elvui also i cant say im a fan of that built in sorter as much idk why it just does not do stuff in the same order  & does not seem to have alot of options so i always still use this 1 + bagnon not a fan of there bagnon type built in addon too lol

  • #263

    Ignore the slot number your hearthstone is in, then it will not be sorted. 

    For bottom left slot in your backback > put your hearthstone here, ignore slot 0 13 it will then stay there every time you sort your bags.

    (use the slash commands or type in  the slot number under:  game menu >interface>addons>bankstack> ignore )

    To locate which slot is which you read the information above - or go to;

    The addon does have several clever ways to sort your bags. Read the information about the addon and *you* can customise the sort - by quest item, subcategory, tradegood need to read the information provided tho!

  • #256

    I'm not sure this addon is the problem, but it happened right after I installed it: I was crafting some items, and the crafting was able to continue, even though my bags were full. My mats was disappearing and the items I made vanished into thin air. I didn't think such a thing was possible, but apparently it was.

  • #255

    Would it be possible to assign specific items to specific bags?

  • #254
    Re: BankStack - enhancement request

    I have a bank mule that has nothing but boe and hierloom armor and weapons, would be nice to have an option to make the primary sort ilevel.

  • #253

    I've really wanted an option where whenever I stack from my bags to the bank or vice versa, it would verbosely list what's being stacked, such as if you have the verbosity option set to 2. The caveat is, I'd prefer it only to be that verbose for that one instance. Would incorporating this as an option be possible?

  • #252

    I just fixed an issue I was having with the /sort guild, and thought I should share. I was having an issue where the /sort guild wasn't working. I would get errors including confusion:stopping, and unknow item. I fixed it by sliding the Processing Delay setting to "1". Ran the addon, and it works fine! Thanks


  • #251

    Heya, just to report a weird bug with this, happens also with latest version.

    When in a battleground, if I select a player and right click their portrait to report them afk (full of botter here on EU servers) this addon prevents me doing so and I need to disable this addon in order to report people afk.

    Weird one.

    I made a video of this addon using a smeagol voice.
