This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

Possessions keeps track of gold and items across all of your characters on each server. Its primary utility comes from being able to use a slash command to instantly show you where you already possess an item on the server without cluttering your tooltips all the time.


  • /poss - Open the possessions window
  • /poss text - Open Possessions and search for "text"
  • /poss [Item Link] - Open Possessions and search for the item linked
  • /poss -clear name - Clears all stored data for the character or guild named "name" on the current realm.
  • /poss -updatetypes - Queries the server for all item types and subtypes in existence to be used in the "All types and subtypes" dropdown. Using this command may cause your game to freeze for a moment while it processes. This should be particularly useful for non enUS users. It is most useful when you have lots of items cached, so not immediately after a patch has cleared your cache.

Some Features:

  • Item Link Storage:
    For any character on your account, Possessions stores worn items, items in your inventory, in your keyring, in the bank, in the inbox, and in the the Guild Bank. It also keeps track of the bags themselves! Of course, you must log in to each character at least once to store their worn items, their inventory, and their keyring contents. In order to track bank contents, you must visit the bank. Possessions stores the items that are in your character's inbox any time you open your inbox. It also stores any items that you mail to one of your alts that Possessions recognizes.
  • Money Tracking:
    Possessions keeps track of how much money each of your characters has and displays the total at the bottom of the Possessions results window, as well as the amount per character in a tooltip when you mouseover the total. Possessions also counts money which you have mailed to an alt, or money in your inbox.

Third-Party Enhancements:

  • WhoHas - "WhoHas modifies every tooltip in the game to show which of your characters have the item in the tooltip, and where."

Possessions was originally written for Vanilla WoW by Oystein and was updated for 2.3 and a few later patches by myself. Sorry for the lack of updates here since 2007, but thank you to everyone who kept it going with patches and fixes in my absence!
