About Genie


Genie is a full bag, bank and guildbank sorting addon with the following features:

  • Changable sorting order
  • Ignorable items
  • Automatic action (here's where the genie comes in ;) )
  • Item stacking
  • Profession items will be moved to their specialized bags

If you are lazy and want Genie to work on your bags automatically (on given events) simply type

/genie auto

and enjoy :)

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

How to help

  • Rate this addon.
  • Become a developer. Simply contact me if you want to help.

  • Request cool features

    Does nothing

    No clue what I could be doing wrong but all it says "cant work with empty containers". I have it set up for regular looting, merchnats, mail etc... All bags selected, no bank or guild bank. I just need it to sort mats i mail to my AH character every day. Was so happy to see an addon to handle that as every time I empty my mailbox for the day I have to spend time sorting everything in complete stacks to make room. 

     I uninstalled all addons except bliz's, still doesnt work. I only want it to stack my herbs i dont need  anything else. I keep all my bags already organized, just when i get mail i would like something to complete stacks nothing else. Anyone have a sugesstion?

    try a different bag addon worked out of the box. no idea why this one doesnt.

    Could it be that you accidentally enabled the ignore bags feature?
    Genie works out of the box, there's no need to select a bag

    Have to click twice sometimes on TitanPanel button

    It's working okay, but now and then I have to click twice on the Genie button in Titanpanel. Genie does start the first time, according to the message in the chat frame. But then doesn't do anything until I start it again. It's a minor thing to me:-)  But I found this error in bugsack:

    Thought you might want to know:-) Hope this helps


  • #464

    should be fixed with r322+

  • #455

    hey mang can I ask you is there any way you can make genie use some kind of selection sort (i havent looked at docs) to place newly picked up items into a sorted position... or some way to make sorting completely un-noticable, because my game becomes pretty much unplayable for the two or so seconds while genie is parsing thanks

  • #453

    Just started using this and it seems solid so far. Just a couple of feature requests and a possible bug if I may.

    • Fambags support so I don't have to open the blizz bags from the button to sort ( I too hate auto sorting).
    • Databroker support, as minimap buttons are devilspawn!
    • Global settings option so I don't have to remember to go into each toon and select reverse sorting.
    • Bug, I've attached a screenshot, showing that the sorting seems to be leaving items that should be sorted into special bags, in the case of the screenshot, Enchant mats but this has happened on herbs too, (2 herb bags, only 1.25 full. It put a bunch of incomplete stacks in the backpack.)

    Great work so far!

    Hmm it seems I can't attach a file to comments. Ping me a PM if you want the screenshots.

    @databroker/ minimap\\
    it's already available. simply disable the minimap button and use a databroker addon

    @global setting\\
    use the same profile on each toon (or copy your profile and customize)

    @bug/ fambags\\
    create 2 tickets over at curseforge. it's easier than having to search through comments

    I can't turn on the minimap button for Genie... No matter what I do - there is no one... Reseted profile, installed/uninstalled addon, etc etc. Nothing helps :(

  • #451

    why the hell ( sorry for that word ) this addon is soo good for my bags, and soooo slow for guild bank bags? god!!! i spend like a 5 minutes to sort my guild bank bag, and my bags, i dont even spend 5 seconds...


    (all default config)


    by the way.. what means GBH and GBT that the guy bellow me post?


    i even try sort with non GM , but with non GM, the guild bank cant be short.... well not for me...

  • #447

    B/c the order of your bags is local to you. The server is not even immediately contacted if you are just moving stuff around. 

    The guild bank is totally different. Think of it like a website that you are uploading your items to.... and there is no bulk upload feature. Every item... even moving stuff within the guild bank is updating the website. 

    Plus, moving stuff in / out / around the GB is flakey as hell.  If addons don't go slowly with the GB there is a good chance you'll loose stuff.
