Guild bank and inventory

I used to have an addon called Possessions which is no longer maintained, and finally decided to look for a replacement. I want to be able to search, by name, for an item to see if I have it somewhere, guild bank, my bank, bags or alts.

Here’s what I found.

BankGUI

Even better than my old standard, BankGUI also know about my tradeskills, equipped glyphs, has a ‘to farm’ list you can write, and is nicely integrated to the social panel. It knows about alts too.

Here I did a search for ‘gems’, and it knows to search for the type gem, not items with ‘gem’ in its name. Current version doesn’t do a total count, still shows like several stacks, but that’s not a big problem.

Here I searched for ‘snapper’, my tanking food of choice, and it shows how many stacks I’ve got and that I have the recipe too.

Now what glyphs do I have, and in blue it shows which I have actually used in my specs. Handy.

I wanted to check what leather items are in the guild bank:

so what is in my guild bank?

So the addon BankGUI gets a good rating from me, and lets me easily check what I have everywhere.

Bagnon

I’ve been using Bagnon for a while. It lets me quickly find a flask in my bags, or one of my trinkets quickly to manually equip it. Its tooltip is aware of alts and bank too, so will let me know how many of an item I really have, but excludes the guildbank in that calculation.

Note BankGUI also has a tooltip option, which I have disabled since I use Bagnons. The screenshot also shows vendor/auction values which is from Auctionator, not Bagnon. The shot shows my alt Stephaniefox has 9 in her bags, too.

By typing t:trink, Bagnon fades out the rest, and shows my four bagged trinkets. The t: is the code used for its intelligent searches. You can also do q:epic, for example.

Bagnons UI is quite configurable too if you’re into the look of things.

GuildBankSearch

Now the next problem is finding the bloody item in the gbank. So many items. You need to filter it like Bagnon does for your own inventory. The addon GuildBankSearch does this perfectly, with a nice easy-to-use GUI also.

Great to quickly find the fish feast, flasks and any other items for the raid, or to isolate epic items you might be distributing to guildies. The items you don’t want are faded out.

    All of those things can be done with Altoholic, besides the highlighting thingie from Bagnon.

    The bag addon I use is MyBags… old and wise, as you could say.
    It doesn’t have searching or highlighting features, since all it takes is some organisation.
    To each his own :]

    I also use and LOVE Altoholic. Definitely worth checking out. I pair it with Bagnon, but Altoholic’s tooltip function is far superior: it identifies items in your mailbox and on the AH, in addition to just bags and bank. (FYI, you turn off Bagnon tooltips buy deleting or disabling the Bagnon_Tooltips addon; you can’t do it from an options window.)

    But GuildBankSearch sounds like a godsend. ::runs off to download::

    heh, altoholic is a cool addon name :)

    I have been using a mod called BankItems for a couple years. I provides visual displays of all bags/bank for your current logged char and all alts. Also shows guild banks. All items are searchable by name. Search results show toon/bag#/loc. Available on wowinterface.

    Same goes for Altoholic.

    And to ambient: the search function in Altoholic is not enough for you ?
    Granted, I mostly use it to find on which character(s) are my items.
    Also, having some organisation helps a lot on finding stuff ^^
