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.)

    Kemayo we are all having the same issue with the sort guild function timing out and trying to pick something up in the cursor. I along with most do have the cautious guild function checked along with all timing options to the max. Is there a work around ? I believe this addon is one of the best most of us have came accross. Would be great if you could get it working again.


    I was just about to make a comment on this. Since 5.2 Guild sorting/filling/stacking stopped working at max settings... I'm not sure what blizzard did, but it totally broke 1 of the most important features to me. I'm constantly farming mats and I like that I can quickly dump/sort all i've gathered.


    Great addon and I'm sure you're already working on a fix. Thanks!

  • #233

    Encountering the same issue, but only with guild vault. Bank vault and bags still works fine.

  • #224

    I'm encountering an odd problem when trying to sort my guild bank. It keeps stopping as it appears to force me to pick something up and then can't decide what to do next. I have to right click to get rid of what I was holding and try again, but it persist in doing it.


    Edit: Oh, I see someone else had the same problem, I'll try fiddling with it to see if it fixes itself.

    Hello, thanks for the awesome addon.

    Is there anyway I can have the addon sort my entire gbank, not just one vault.

    For instance, I need it to bring all the cloth scattered among the vaults in one vault.


  • #223

    Just type `/sort guild` and it should do it across all the tabs.

  • #229

    I can't test this because of the other issue that a bunch have posted about bank sorting stopping. 

  • #221

    I would like to see some sorting configuration possibilities, my guildies and I are a litttle OCD and the way this sorts through items seems to be a little off. Things like sorting by level for gear and cooking items in order of skill level (from the start of the guild bank. On top of that the option to order things in categories such as head|shoulders|chest|back etc. if this is part of the grouping system I really can't get my head around how that works without knowing which items are being categoriezed under which names.

    Let me know what you think. Will this be in a future update?

    Probably not the fix every one is looking for but i manage to get the addon working again by increasing the Processing Delay (Guild) to 1 in the settings under the Advanced options. I tried all the lower settings and although it would run a little longer it would never complete for me until i set it all the way to 1. Im just happy i can get it to work even if its slow, its better than nothing imo. Good luck :)

  • #227

    How large is your guild bank that your sorting ? Mine is max tabs with a pretty full inventory of items. I cant get past the first tab without it timing out and saying its confused. I have the guild bank cautious tabbed clicked and the settings at max so it takes its time. Any ideas on how to get it working ?

  • #234

    I'm able to sort with each tab in my guild bank at full one tab at a time at the settings I described without the add on stopping. Not sure why its working for me and not for most every one else. Maybe reaction time from the servers may very a slight for each server and I'm just lucking out. All I can say for now until the auther is able to come up with a fix, is to fiddle with the settings and see if you can find one that works for you. Good luck ;)

    Do you have the "cautious guild" option in BankStack's advanced settings turned on or off?

  • #219

    I have it turned on. :)

  • #214

    I turned everything up to 1 in advanced and yes it works a bit better but still fails sometimes mid sort if you have a lot of moves to action, I guess it's something for the time being. I actually don't mind it being that slow just wish the fails would stop. I have looked at other sorting addons and noticed they are all failing in a similar fashion after 5.2, hopefully it gets sorted.

  • #215

    I would prefer Blizzard stop being stingy with bank activity or make their own sorting utility that runs server-side. Right now all they're doing is dragging things out unneccesarily to accomplish someting they won't even openly express to the community so we can work with them to that end. Oddly, communication can have positive results.
