Bagnon / Banknon Reference Guide - Vanilla World of Warcraft Addons


Bagnon / Banknon is a useful addon that displays all of your bags in one window, which really streamlines your interface as you get the larger bags. Even more useful, though, is that it lets you see the bags and banks of all your other characters. This is tremendously useful if you store crafting materials on an alt and you need to figure out how much of a certain material you need to collect on your main.
