What is it?
Have you ever accidentally sold something, only to find out too late that you have, and that there's no way to get it back? Have you worried about this and stressed out a bit too much whilst selling things, just to be absolutely sure you don't sell your valuables? Have you triple-checked the things you're destroying just to make sure that you're not destroying a valuable whilst cleaning out your bags? If this sounds like you, then this mod is for you.
How does it work?
Essentially, you can build a list of items that you want protected by Vault, and then, when you go to a vendor, if you accidentally sell an item, it'll buy it back for you right away, tell you that it did, and play a sound to warn you that you're not paying attention to what you're selling. If you try to destroy an item that's in your Vault, then Vault will stop you from doing so.
The elements of Vault are split up into modules. This is so that you can pick and choose the parts that you want and only those parts. You can enable/disable modules via the addons menu at the character select screen, or if you prefer, you could just remove the folders entirely. Pick and mix, use what you want, the choice is yours.
In this section, I'll go through the various modules that vault has, and what they do.
-- AntiDestroy Module
This module stops you from destroy items in your vault. If you drag an item outside your bag and it's in your vault, then vault will automatically clear your cursor and warn you, thus keeping your valuable items safe. This only affects items in your vault, so to keep what you want safe, simply add it to your vault and never worry about accidentally destroying your best items ever again!
-- AntiSell Module
This module checks what you're selling to vendors. If you try to sell an item that's in your vault to a vendor, then it will automatically be bought back for you. Even if an addon tries to sell all greys, this module will ensure that any item that's in your vault remains in your bags, and not with teh vendor. So to protect your items, just add them to your vault list, and never worry whilst selling at a vendor again!
-- Slash Command Module
The commands for this are as follows:
/vault [Item Link] - adds or removes an item from the vault as a toggle.
/vault check [Item Link] - checks whether the item is already in the vault or not.
/vault wipe - removes all your current character's items from the vault.
/vault restore - restores your vault from its last backup state.
/vault help - brings up a printout with this information.
Not supplying an item link works the same as the latter option, there. It just gives the player a help printout.
-- DataBroker Module
To add or remove an item, drag the item to the DataBroker plugin and click on it to to do so. It acts as a toggle, so to remove the item you do the same thing. To remove the item from your cursor when you're done, press esc or right-click (same as the default UI).
The DataBroker plugin has a tooltip which contains a list of all the items already in your vault, so just mouseover it to find out what you have in your vault. And finally, this module also has features pertaining to the database: If you wish to clear the database, hold alt, then click the plugin. If you wish to restore your database from a backup, hold alt and shift, then click the button.
-- Blizz Options Module
To access this, head into the Interface options panel and click the AddOns tab. Scroll down in the left panel until you see Vault and click on it there.
You are presented with three elements.
The first of which allows you to add an item. There's a button present where, if you drag an item to it and click on it, it'll add that item to the vault. You can dismiss the icon from your cursor with either esc or right-click (same as the default UI).
The next element is a list of items in your vault - this will show up as blank if there are none. To remove an item from your vault, just click one of the item names in this vault. The list should update immediately to reflect this.
Finally, the last two elements pertain to database control. The first button will allow you to empty your current character's vault, and the second button will allow you to restore your vault from its last backed up state.
-- Tooltip Module
This adds 'Vault Protected' to your item tooltip where the item is in the vault. So, if you have an item in the vault, and you mouseover an item, right below the item name you'll see 'Vault Protected,' if the item is not in the vault, then that text will not be there.
I have also taken this opportunity to make the tooltips a little easier to read by putting a blank line under the title in both instances. If this is something that people don't like, I'll remove it. I actually find it makes the tooltips easier to skim though, but maybe that's just me subjectively.
-- Other Modules
I don't have any others at this moment in time, and with the Blizz Options, DataBroker, Tooltip, and the Slash Command modules, I think I've covered all the bases. I'm very open to suggestions, however, and if you'd like to see a new module coded, then poke me, and I'll see what I can do.
I'd like to offer my thanks to everyone in the comments section, here. It's been a long road for Vault with a lot of experimentation. I'll keep trying to make it better, and hopefully without so many bugs.
But the users of my mod have been polite, patient, and just really stand up people. I appreciate that.
