About Auctioneer

Auctioneer Suite

Auctioneer Suite provides you with the tools and data necessary to make those difficult auctioning decisions with ease.

From purchasing to posting, the Auctioneer Suite provides time-tested tools to allow you more time to actually play your characters or play the market. As you will soon discover, it is much more than a simple "Auctioning AddOn", the Auctioneer Suite also shows in-depth information for all game items, such as those used in quests or recipes, enchanting, milling, prospecting and more.

Numerous other AddOns will also use the Auctioneer statistics you gather via scanning. This is especially true for many of the popular crafting AddOns, such as Little Sparky's Workshop, GnomeWorks, and Skillet.

Looking for Ultra Lightweight and Fast?

Try the "Auctioneer" download from our primary site, rather than the "Auctioneer Suite" we upload to Curse and WoWInterface. All of our downloads are accessible from our primary site at http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl . This version offers a small footprint, with only the basic "Post" frame and tooltip information to assist in your purchasing decisions.

Basic Auctioneer Suite Details

The Auctioneer Suite contains Auctioneer, all of its modules, BeanCounter, Enchantrix and Enchantrix Barker, and Informant to help provide a comprehensive view of item data, whether at the Auction House or out questing. Some highlights are:


An intuitive auction posting frame.

  • Remembers your preferences for bid/buyout prices, stack sizes, and number of listings to post per item.
  • Allows queuing of auctions, so you can instruct it to list hundreds of auctions at a time. Note that Blizzard introduced a hardware event requirement to confirm each posting, but, with Appraiser's Batch Posting, you reduce the total clicks from two per auction, to one.
  • Allows you to specify the value price of your choice and remembers your selection
  • Displays competing listings, the age of the data, and allows you to sort these listings and refresh them easily.
  • Provides a scrollable list of all auctionable items in your bags; allowing you to quickly post all of your goods.
  • Provides a "Match Competition" setting which will automatically undercut your competition when posting auctions, within your parameters
  • Provides the ability to change to a "Simple" view; a bit like the Auctioneer Classic posting interface.
  • Allows you to change column width by Right-Clicking and dragging to the column width of your choice.
  • Allows you to post multiple auctions with the single click of the Batch Post button.
    • Alt+Left-Click == Refresh Pricing of all Batch Postable Items.
    • Shift+Left-Click == Trial or List Posting. Does not actually queue any items to post but prints the exact pricing that will be used on the Auction House in an easily readable format in the "chat window". This allows a user to verify their settings and make adjustments if necessary.
    • Ctrl+Shft+Alt+Left-Click == Queue all items that have the "Allow Batch Posting" checkbox selected (located at the top of the item information pane).


An alternative to the standard auction browsing interface.

  • Displays more auctions per page
  • Displays more data per auction
  • Allows you to change column width by Right-Clicking in the column heading and dragging left or right to resize the column to your liking
  • Provides a percentage comparison with the Market Value Statistic of your choice
  • Allows auctions to be color coded by price level
  • Allows multiple sorting options not available on the standard interface

Statistic Modules

There are a variety of fully customizable statistic modules included with Auctioneer that can provide a variety of pricing information- all based upon your needs.

  • "Market" - a custom designed formula that merges the various statistics into a usable price. This is the default setting and is highly recommended.
  • Auc-Stat-Histogram - Returns Median and IQR values, based upon a Histogram of pricing data. Essentially, a median value, based upon all prices ever seen; no data is ever discarded.
  • Auc-Stat-iLevel - Statistics modules that groups all items of same rarity, type, and iLevel together (e.g. all green weapons of iLevel 180). Useful for pricing random "of the ..." items.
  • Auc-Stat-Purchased - Statistics module that tries to infer purchase prices based on items disappearing before they could have expired. (Requires more frequent scanning of the AH)
  • Auc-Stat-Sales – Uses data from BeanCounter to display historical statistics on actual purchase and sale prices. Note that this statistic is installed along with BeanCounter, and cannot be installed separately.
  • Auc-Stat-Simple - Statistics module that performs simple averaging of data, converted daily to exponential moving averages of the orders 3, 7 and 14.
  • Auc-Stat-StdDev - Statistics module that keeps the last 100 price points for an item and performs a standard deviation on the data list to exclude outliers from the sample space and provide a normalized mean.
  • Auc-Stat-WOWEcon - Statistics module that uses the WOWEcon AddOn's data (if separately installed) to provide the price to other Auctioneer modules.
  • Any other stat module that you or others wish to create can be easily added to auctioneer functionality!


An Auctioneer Utility that prompts you when it sees auctions that fit your criteria for buying and, or, bidding.

  • Uses Searchers that you can customize for various desired deals such as:
    • Resale - Prompts you for deals based on discount from the market value, AH fee, and expected relistings
    • Disenchant - Prompts you for deals based on disenchanting armor and weapons
    • Prospecting - Prompts you for jewelcrafting deals from prospecting ores
    • Vendor - Prompts you for auctions listed below vendor sell price
  • The "RealTimeSearch" will continually reload the first and last page of the AH, within reason, as per your configuration, to find the newest bargains and auctions that are just about to come to an end. Both great times to find some amazing deals.
  • Piggybacks on your AH scans if allowed to do so


An associated addon that tracks your bid, postings, and mail to help you determine your overall and item-specific profitability.

  • Creates journal entries when you bid, buy, post, or retrieve AH mail.
  • Provides a searchable interface that can display all activity or only certain items
  • Allows you to change column width by Left-Click and dragging the column to the size of your liking


Enchantrix displays values for disenchanting, milling, and prospecting; plus suggested values for selling enchants. Enchantrix can also automate disenchanting, milling and prospecting. Some baseline pricing is built in, but Enchantrix also uses values from Auctioneer to provide up-to-date prices for your server/faction. Enchantrix also includes controls to let you customize the pricing by enchant material (fixed prices and weighting).


Informant displays additional information about items in their tooltips: buy price; sell price; item level; what quests, classes or professions use the item; the value of the item produced by a recipe; etc. Informant can also tell you what vendors sell a given item.

What Can Auctioneer Do to Help Me?

Once a user moves to the Auction House (AH) and beyond just buying and selling from/to vendors, the whole game changes. No longer is the user dealing with the static prices of the vendor to support their character's income. We are now dealing with the fluid and hectic nature of a dog-eat-dog market economy.

In such an economy, which is in a constant state of flux, it can be difficult to select the correct pricing points for your item at the AH. Sometimes, the prices and value of your items can be wildly different compared to the vendor price due to many factors, the value of items that can be made from your item, the use of a particular item in a quest, the suitability of a particular weapon or armor to specific classes, and the disenchantability of an item to enchanters.

Primarily, the driving factor of the price fluctuations, as in the real world is supply versus demand. When supply is high, but demand is low, competition drives the prices down, and conversely then supply is low, but demand is high, the market is driven into a sellers market.

The Auctioneer Suite can help you alleviate this lack of market knowledge over time by watching the market evolve.

When you go to the Auction House (AH) for the first time after installing Auctioneer, you will see a row of 3 buttons along the top of the main "Browse" frame, click the "play" button to begin your first scan of the entire AH. Auctioneer will begin recording statistics for every item it finds, including the bid, buyout, and more.

Once the market analysis has completed, you will notice additional information about the items in the tooltips when you mouse over them.

What happens when you go to sell items via the Auction House?

If auctioneer has enough data, when you try to put an auction up for sale, it will attempt to provide you with intelligent pricing points based upon the market data it has accumulated through scanning.

When you select an item in the full or simple "Appraiser" frame, Auctioneer will suggest a minimum price, a buyout price and display relevant data about it's decision making process in the right, receipt window, including how it has arrived at its prices.

When you place an item in the SimpleAuction, "Post" frame, Auctioneer will suggest a minimum bid, a buyout price, and display relevant data, including the deposit and more.

What are the available pricing models, or statistics, again?

There are numerous pricing models from which to choose, they are discussed in the FAQ, located at http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Auctioneer/FAQ .


We hope this helps people to understand the Auctioneer Suite a bit better. Visit our main site for indepth information and help - http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com .

    Be very carefull when letting it post items, it was automatically deleteing a "0" from my price. I found out too late and it cost me about 10k. I posted random stuff just to verify that it was doing it on its own, not just me hitting the wrong amount.

    remove mail ui changes

    Love auctioneer and it has helped make several million gold. However, I have had a problem with auctioneer adding buttons to the mailbox that I don't want. I use tsm mailing.

    How do I remove the changes auctioneer makes to the mailbox either by editing lua or in settings.

  • #8458

    I haven't found anything in Auctioneer that adds directly to the Mailbox GUI.

    But Auc-Util-AutoMagic does create a 'floating' frame, with extra buttons, when the mailbox is opened. This can be disabled from AutoMagic's config menu within Auctioneer.

  • #8456

    Well, here's my problem with this addon. SOmetimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. (5.4.8 usage)

    I can run a scan and 5 of 20 items, that do have a vendor price, don't use the vendor markup. Even if I have it selected as my secondary pick. Also, even if I manually set that product to vendor markup on it's info page and hit refresh 40 times. Fresh installs, reloads, head bashed against screen, and all that. I love this product.. When it works...

    Is there a replacment to the informent Addon? ive loaded it up but it dont work at all. i recive no error messages but its not showing in my addon section

  • #8450

    First off I want to thank the creator and probably the project maintainer's even more for one of the single most usefull addons I have ever used. I have played for almost 8 years now and this adon has broken just one time in those 8 years. I want to say that was during the great catactlsm "Ironic Right?", but I have faithfully kept it in my logs for all of that time. With the downfall of the Undemine Journal (I know not related), but having this pugged into my auctioneer has been a welcome addition over the last few years. I have noticed that another addon uses, getting it's stats from Wowuction instead. Is there a possibility of getting this or something similar for auctineer?

  • #8449

    Been using this addon for ages and now all of the sudden, it crashes whenever I scan auctions at the processing step. I'm guessing my 9 months of almost daily scan data is the cause. Is there a way to get rid of auction data that's a certain amount of time old?

    If you're getting a Crash-to-Desktop error #134 'memory allocation error: block too big' on your 64 bit client, try the 32 bit client instead.

    WTF folder contains all addon settings. Definitely do not want to delete that. I only want to trim my old scan data.

  • #8451

    I think if you cleaned out your WTF folder in wow it might reset those! I am not an expert on thses things, but through the years when having multiple problems this has fixed issues for a lot of users. "WARNING" doing this will reset all of your addons and erase any saved settings you may have. Bcak up that folder first then try it so you can put it back together if you are unhappy!!!!

  • #8448

    How does the data purge in the configuration menu for beancounter work?  I've selected it, but nothing has happened, all the beancounter data is still there.


  • #8447

    I found this addon was overpricing multiple items despite being told to undercut the cheapest by 5%.

    It got to the worst when it came to selling Netherweave. I have stacks and stacks of the cloth. Try to put it on the AH? Auctioneer always overprices by a minimum of 10g/stack, and I lose a ton of money in deposits.

    Auctionator is a lot better imo.

  • #8446

    Was wondering if something is going on with my Auctioneer or a setting has been disabled somehow..I like being able to see who has purchased items and how long until it arrives in the mail to my toon when I'm selling on my bank toons. It shows up on all of my toons on 1 realm when I look at their auctions pages,  but I've noticed because I made a different faction and realm toon, that it doesn't display this information on that toon's auctions page. Can't seem to find any way to fix it, and I compared the configurations with each other and I've uninstalled and reinstalled. Any ideas?

  • #8445

    Where can I get JUST Auctioneer, not the suite? I'd like to individually download the bits of the suite I actually want to use.
