and enjoy :)

If you want to customize the way Genie works, then have a look at the documentation

How to help

    when should we expect this to be updated, been over a week since patch. I can honestly say I am going crazy without my genie addon.
  • #348
    genie not working for me :(
  • #346
    This will need to be updated for 4.2, as when I used it, it caused EXTREME lag and my game literally froze up for 5mins before I gave up and had to crash it on purpose when using the sort button
  • #345
    Hopefully, I'm not being dense but I wasn't able to find an option to disable the sorting of my personal bags 100%. I am only interested in the stacking part of genie but it doesn't seem possible with the current option set.

    I also am having trouble getting the auto portion of the addon to work. I have auto enabled and my only option that is checked is the "Looted" option under Stacking. When cutting gems, the addon is not automatically stacking them as I am looting them.
  • #347
    @disabling sorting\\
    there's no need to. simply use /genie bag stack, and genie won't sort.

    i'm not sure the game sends a loot-event when milling stuff. could you please add a ticket 'add milling to the auto-looting-event'
  • #349
    Yeah. The only event that fires from milling is the standard CHAT_MSG_LOOT event.
  • #344
    When I have Soulbound selected for guild bank sorting (and perhaps other sorting) it seems to negatively affect the order. I'm not sure why it's affecting the order at all since nothing in the guild bank is or can be soulbound. Right now I've taken to disabling it to sort the guild bank then re-enabling it for my personal bags. Just curious how it can be affecting things that are not soulbound.
  • #352
    it doesn't (shouldn't). Please create a ticket at
  • #342
    Hi. I've added the following to my guild info in the Info tab (near Rewards, News, Roster, etc):


    But John still cannot organize or sort the items in the guild vault. :(

    Can you please tell me what we're doing wrong here?
  • #363

    Ever since the October 11th server reset, I've been unable to sort the guild bank.  I'll open a ticket, (once I figure out how) with screenshots, but I'm wondering if anyone else is having the issue.  I've tried all 4 algorithms, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling.  I think it's something Blizzard has done, as I even tried a different sorting addon, with the same result.

  • #343
    It [seems] as though I had to log out after changing the guild info? I'm not sure, but basically it's sorted. "John" is able to sort the items in the guild vault just fine now. But I didn't do anything other than logging out.
  • #340
    hi, I have been trying to sort out the ranking feature to group items in my bank, but no matter what I try, all my dusts seem to get seperated. I was wondering how I would reset it to the default ranking, cause if I remember correctly, it used to do it fine before I started playing about with the rankings.
  • #341
    you have to reset your profile
  • #338
    I have a very odd predicament - I sorted my bank and bags, then went into Deadmines, about an hour ago. I came out, sorted my bags, and got this error, and have gotten it ever since, even after a /reload, a full log out, a total client restart, and uninstalling and reinstalling Genie:

    .. Anyone have any advice? At 11:00pm EST it worked just fine. At 12:30am EST, it was broken. I'm rather confused :)
  • #339
    ... And it suddenly works again - I sorted that out.
    The issue is caused by changing Equipment sets. I was in my healing gear before the dungeon, but ran it as DPS, and so changed gear. Once I changed back into my healing gear, it worked again.
