I used to have an addon called Possessions which is no longer maintained, and finally decided to look for a replacement.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.
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 the addon BankGUI gets a good rating from me, and lets me easily check what I have everywhere.
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.
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.
