Handling all glyphs on one character.

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
I have created the attached addon to help me optimize my glyph operations.

My Reasons
The dumpster addon was nice but now that there are 405 glyphs spamming the key over and over got annoying to make the swap, also all the chat spam was too much. Another annoyance was that I posted group 1, then 2, then 3. When they would expire, they would come out of the mailbox in the reverse order (first in, last out). This caused me to have to grab group 3, gather up the mail, then to get to group 2 next, I would have to work through group 1. All in all, lots of spamming! Alas, Glyphinator was born.


Requirements


  • Bank > 270 slots
    • You can reach 272 with 5 Royal Scribe's Satchels and 2 Pack of Endless Pockets

  • Bags > 135 slots
    • With 4 Pack of Endless Pockets you will have 144

  • Glyphinator addon - see attachment


The Magic

With 405 glyphs in the game, you can easily post 3 rounds of 135 each. This addon uses the Item ID of the glyph to decide which round it should be in and then decides if they need to be moved. It fills up 2 tables, move to bank and move to bags. Next, it alternates between the 2 tables moving the glyphs about. It works on moving 1 out of the bank and then 1 into the bank at a time and repeats. In the end, you don't have "inventory full" errors and you get the group you want, when you want it (go group 1 to 3 directly) in 1 keystroke. Don't worry though, the actual swap only takes about a second or two.

How To Use It
You'll need to make 3 macros, one for each group. I didn't think fancy slash commands were necessary, so they are just simple functions that you can call directly. I recommend posting them in order group 1 to group 3. This way when they expire, you can walk to the mailbox with group 3 when your bag gets full, grab group 2, etc...

Get Group 1
Code:
/script Glyphinator.Move(1)

Get Group 2

Code:
/script Glyphinator.Move(2)
Get Group 3
Code:
/script Glyphinator.Move(3)
That's pretty much it. Now walk to your bank, click a macro, go post. Rinse and repeat 3 times.

Wait...There's one more thing
In Steve Jobs fashion, there always has to be something else. Let's say you craft a bunch of random glyphs on your main and mail them to your glyph seller. Now you have all sorts of glyphs in the mailbox with no particular order in the groups. You are forced to grab only a few out of the mail before your inventory gets full. Now, you go dump them and repeat again until you've made a rut in the stone between the bank and the mailbox. Glyphinator can scan your mail and make a temporary group of those items. Walk to your bank, execute the macro, it'll grab what's in your mailbox and dump the rest. Now you can withdraw in probably one pass.

To scan your mailbox:
Code:
/script Glyphinator.PrepMail()
To get the new temporary group, use group 4:
Code:
/script Glyphinator.Move(4)
Caveats?
This only works with a regular bank, not a guild bank. When I have hundreds of glyphs to post, I don't want to wait for the guild bank log writes to happen.

    Just wanted to say nice work! It's no small task to keep up with all the current glyphs on a single toon!

    Does this addon work with any bag related addon? I was getting the message "You are not at a bank" until I disabled bagnon. That said, I thought I should test it out as a last ditch effort before resorting to either splitting glyph operations between a few more bankers or dropping glyph sales entirely.

    My impression thus far - I think you just saved my entire glyph operation without the trouble of dealing with multiple glyph bankers. So far I am finding it vastly superior to the Dumpster and even the bag swap macros. Today's posting was so painless I felt like I was dealing with a fraction of the glyphs. The glyph sellers on my realm best prepare for some serious competition! Muahahahaha!

    Couldn't see a way to +rep you for this but I at least gave your entry the max rating.

    Thanks @Spanky! I don't use any bag mods so I am not sure. It does specifically look for a frame call "BankFrame". If you want, load Bagnon, go to a bank, and type /fstack. This will show you all the windows that your mouse is currently over. Mouse over your bank window and let me know what Bagnon calls its bank frame. You can type /fstack again to turn off the tracking window.

    Looks like it's calling it BagnonFramebank if I'm interpreting this correctly.

    Edited per "b" in bank is lowercase. I edited the LUA file and had it replace BankFrame with BagnonFramebank whenever it appeared. Now it works like a charm with bagnon, and it will no longer tell me to get my tushie to the bank! Oh yeah, I also changed that message.

    Thanks a mil, @svetlania!

    @svetlania - I'm using ElvUI and getting the same "You are not at a bank" message that @Spanky mentioned. Here's a screenshot of what /fstack shows when I mouseover over my bank http://d.pr/i/aM6p - should I just do a search/replace in your addon changing from "BankFrame" to ElvUI_BankContainerFrame? Very excited to use your addon!

    12 hours (yes, first expired glyphs just came back...) into using your addon and I'm absolutely in love. You're a freakin' genius! Thank you so much!

    The search/replace should work.

    Heya, This is fantastically useful.

    Any thoughts on if you might update it for 5.4?

    Thanks

    If you enable out of date addons this still works perfectly. The bigger problem now is that the concept doesn't really work anymore. When I made it, there were 405 glyphs. You could easily keep 1/3 on you and the other 2/3's in the bank. Now there are 444 glyphs and you can't fit all of them within your bank and bags anymore. You'll have to go back to relying on guild bank storage.

    I still think Glyphinator is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
