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.)

    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.

  • #212

    Not working properly anymore, even after the 5.2 updated ver. After a few guild bank moves it stops and your cursor changes into the last item that was being moved, and won't go any further until you either click a place to set the item or right click to cancel in open area. It will begin going again for a bit after this but will abort and say it's confused.

  • #216

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

  • #220

    yes, i have cautious guild option set on and after looking back here I have also set all the timing options all the way up to 1. It still breaks on occaision with that, but if i reloadui it will sometimes fix it. It almost seems that we need to be able to make the advanced settings even slower than 1

  • #209

    As of 5.2 I can no longer get this Addon to work for my guild bank. Last night (5.1) it worked fine, but today (5.2) it won't work for my guild. Still works great for my bank and for my bags.

    Issue: After I start sorting via /sort guild1 or whichever tab it may be, it prints to chat how many moves it has to make, and then it will start moving but after like 2 or 3, it stops and I have to leave my bank and come back to start again. When it stops it does so while an item is selected so if I click in a bank spot it will drop that item there, but I still have to leave and come back to continue sorting.

  • #210

    I'm having the same issue even after the update to BankStack.   :(

  • #211

    just wanting to confirm same issue here, I really hope it gets fixed <3 this addon.


    DERP: just saw it's been updated

    Update: even after updating sorting no longer works and does Alaghoth says, starts sorting and then suddenly stops and shows you have an item selected on your cursor, trying to sort again repsonds with process already running.

    Just wondering if this is getting an update with 5.2, as it seems to not be working for me anymore and I use this addon religiously.  Please please please update this, thank you!

  • #207

    Seeing as how this addon hasn't been updated, I'm not sure I'll get any help with my problem (but someone else might have an answer!). The addon is sorting fine in that everything is in order the way it should be (except for two low level crafting materials that are ahead of mop mats only because they're blue >: | ). My problem is that it sorts high mats to low mats in my guild bank, from the left of the tab to the right. I want the low level mats to be on the left hand side, and I can get it to do this.... but the result is everything is on the right hand side of the tab, instead of the left.... if I am making any sense. I would upload a screen shot if i knew how :/

  • #205

    Hey great mod! Just wondering if it's possible for it to ignore rarity and just sort by item type? For my guild bank I want all items of the same type grouped but it seems to be seperating them by rarity, eg: epic gems are mixed in with epic armor and then other gems aren't with them.

  • #206

    I like this suggestion aswell.

    Other thing I would like to, I saw that bacnkstack does alot unnessary moves while sorting. For example, when I got got 20 same kind of bags in my bags and everything is already sorted by addon. Then I move the first bag into embty area by one single move. Addond sorts that out with 19 moves instead the one I made.
