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.)

    Caged Pets

    Fantastic Mod, been using it for years.

    My problem is *caged* pets, it wont sort them properly.  If a pet is brought that has not been caged 'Wood Frog Box' found on that boy NPC at Darkmoon Faire for example, it will sort fine.

    But if you add that frog to your battle pet list then cage it again, it will no longer be sorted properly, and the info will change from a regular item info to battle pet info, (level, quality, and stats)

    Is this a known problem you are working on?  It does seem to be a common problem as I have not found a sorting mod that can sort caged pets.

    I also note that in the AH uncaged pets are still in the old 'Misc' 'Companion Pets' catagory and  caged pets which now have their catagory (Battle Pets) split into the various pet types.

    Ah yeah, that was the bug i had as well, ah well.

  • #179

    Caged pets are working (mostly fine) as of v28. They're no longer ignored, but it doesn't do all that much to sort them within the category. (Blizzard did some *weird* stuff with them.)

  • #186

    Well, unlike v27 and before it won't just completely ignore (or count as empty-space) caged pets. It's just that it now thinks that all caged pets are the same item, so it won't sort meaningfully within a group of caged pets.

    Interestingly, this is because they *are*. If you use the right API calls to find out about the items in your bags, it turns out that all caged pets are a "Pet Cage" item, and displaying as distinct items is actually a factor of the precise link they return for them.

    Caged pets

    Upgraded to v28, I dont see much difference, It might not stop as often though so that is an improvement.

    Agreed Blizz has done some funky stuff with caged pets.  Oh well in time I'm sure it will be resoved.  Cool

    If it makes it any better, none of the other sorting mods can sort caged pets either. Undecided

    Works as intended! Flawless! THANK YOU for saving me hours at a time!

    When sorting my guild bank, I frequently have to run the addon twice to get everything sorted.

    Note:  I'm the only player in my guild.  My guild bank is full of inscription inks.

    I'm having a variation on this issue, when filling in stacks from my bags to my bank, it often does 1 or 2 moves and then just hangs so I have to abort it and run it again and again. Annoying when it tells me it has 40 moves to make.

  • #169

    Hello! I wanted to congratulate you on this add-on. The improvements in the algorithms are truly notable. Just a quick feature request: is it possible to make it so it organizes the items by Alphabetical order rather than by type? I say this because it would be so much easier to order xmog items (and to see what parts I'm missing to completing sets). Thank you!

  • #168

    <p>I love this add-on! I have a problem though. I cannot get it to sort my guild bank anymore. It says perfection exists, but it doesn't, or it gets confused and stops. Any suggestions? I don't know if the command has changed, as I have not used it for a while at the guild bank. But I used to use /sort guild1, etc.</p>
    <p>Please help! Love this add-on!</p>

    EDIT:  I found where you do the groups and love the idea of sorting the entire guild bank. It stopped sorting though and didn't give me a message until I tried to start it again and it said a sorter was already working. Also, I read the comments and there was a comment about stacking by level. Is that possible and if so, how do I do that? We have a guild tab that is high end enchants, gems, gear etc. would like to sort that by type then level. Is that possible?

    Any chance to get a way to sort across multiple tabs of a bank? would make searching a hell of a lot easier

  • #165

    I use v26 and the keyboard shortcut does not work. I set a shortcut at WoW keyboard setting for Compress Bag, but nothing happen.

  • #166

    It's ok with v27! Thanks :)

  • #164

    I love this addon, have been using since LK, but another same question like MagicMike304, there`s a way, or gonna be a way to ignore a entire bag? Because if I have bags with 22 slots, or more, gonna be a pain in the a$$ ignore all slots, and if change the position of the bag, or the bag, gonna have to change all again, or add/remove slot by slot.

    But it`s a great addon, and i just wanna see even better!

    Faster guild bank sort -

    Is much faster only problem is sometimes it just stops for no reason. doesn't say anything just stops. Only thing i do is close and reopen the guild bank to start over.
