Possessions is an AddOn to keep track of all your... possessions.
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.
In the Possessions window you can then filter the list to show items from a certain player or a certain location.
The items are grouped together and the tooltip will show you how many you have of the item at each location.
So, if you want to see if you have any silk cloth anywhere you can just do '/poss silk cloth', and Possessions will show, in its window, all items matching 'silk cloth'. Mouseover that, and you'll see, for example, that you have 10 silk cloth in your bank, 50 silk cloth in your alt's inventory, and 5 silk cloth in your mailbox.
Additionally, Possessions will keep track of items you mail to known alts (so, if you mail an additional 5 silk to your alt, Possessions will know an additional 5 silk is in your alt's inbox, without relogging).
/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.
