About LootBuddy

LootBuddy automatically removes items from your bags after looting a corpse which meet a set of filters you create.


  • /lootbuddy config or /lb config - will open config window
  • /lootbuddy enable - toggles filtering on
  • /lootbuddy disable - toggles filtering off
  • /lootbuddy silent - toggles silent mode on, you will not receive item deletion notifications

UPDATE - v1.0.8
  • Fixed a bug where quest items would cause filtering to cease.

UPDATE - v1.0.7
  • Fixed a bug where quest items would accidentally be trashed.

UPDATE - v1.0.6
  • Fixed a bug introduced with aoe looting
  • Fixed a bug with group looting in instances

UPDATE - v1.0.5
  • Greatly improved filtering speed
  • Fixed bug with internal variable reset failure, causing filtering lag & eventual filtering failure
  • Changed "Food" / "Water" preset filters to ignore case, "food" or "Food" will work as expected

UPDATE - v1.0.4
  • Added the ability to specify which bags filtering is applied to

UPDATE - v1.0.3
  • Added safe list for items which should never be trashed even if they match trash filters

UPDATE - v1.0.2
  • Updated to support Mists of Pandaria patch (5.0.4)

UPDATE - v1.0.1
  • Added automatic removal of malformed filters
  • Fixed issue with items being trashed when no filters are set
  • Fixed issue with recent patch not respecting item quality filters

UPDATE - v0.0.9
  • Added two new generic item types: food & water.
    To trash all items considered as water use the following rule: type = "water"
    For food just change "water" to "food"

    Hello, I was recomended this addon, but I just seem not to understand it. How do I config not to loot gray itens, for example ?


    What about specific itens ?

    you would create a rule with quality = "0"
    which would delete gray items.

    Hello, for some reason it won't desotry Sealed Crate which is soulbound, you can get it by fishing.

    This seems to be a common problem with items containing a space or special characters (i.e. german umlauts).

    Meanwhile I'm using Karni's Crap Filter 3.2.1 with the described changes in the comments and that works fine.

    Nice addon ;)

    Is there any way to limit the filters to certain bags, i.e. to bag 0 and bag 1 and exclude bag 2,3,4?

    BTW: Same problems here like others below at the moment:

    Nothing is filtered and debug mode doesn't display any message at all.

    Thanks a lot

    Wohooo... thanks a lot for that bag update! :-)

    Apparently type = "food" is case sensitive, requiring the lowercase version. If you want to drop food and water you must type it exactly as it was mentioned above and use the lowercase form even though the graphic above has it listed as type = "Food".

     Also items that have special characters in them cannot be added to the list manually.

    e.g., name = "Tel'Abim Banana" will be automatically removed by the malformed filter rejection code.

    this issue has been resolved with version 1.0.5, the preset water / food filers are no longer case sensitive.

    Here is  rule that saves all cloth:

    subtype != "Cloth"

    Tricks - there must be a space between the operator and operands, that is, a space between the word "subtype" and the operator (in this case not-equal-to) and the last operand "Cloth".

    Can others post working rule set?  I can get individual rules to work, but I'd like to see examples of a large, working ruleset.

    Alright it's telling me items are marked as trash but no action is taken? Items marked as trash are still in my inventory, am I missing something here? quality = "0" and value < "7500"

    dont know why it's not deleting the items.

  • #10

    Check to see if you are in "debug" mode on the /lb config screen.  Debug will show you what LB is going to do, but doesn't actually do it.

  • #8

    same here i've disabled all other addon's i've tried all sort's of filter's but the stuff that "get's marked" are still in my bag's :(

  • #5

    Says "Dependency Disabled", so I am assuming it needs another addon to function.

  • #6

    it need's Ace3 just install that and it work's :)

  • #2

    @The_Xennon, please review the example rules. You'll notice you have to enclose the quality in quotes like the example below.

    quality = "0" and value < 1000

    the above rule would delete items that are poor quality and worth less then 10 silver.

    I've tested this add-on quite extensively farming low level mats, wool, linen and silk were among these tests. It works as expected if the rules are formed correctly.
