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 .

    Blizzard no longer allows automatic purchasing or mass purchasing.  Each purchase must be accompanied by a keypress or a mouseclick, unfortunately.  The EasyBuyout module can simplify buying lots of identical stacks, but it only works on the browse tab.

  • #8810

    seems like the update on 11/3/15 (or whatever Bliz did then) has adverely affected any AH at least in Stormwind AHs -- it was all messed up -- couldn't buy/se;; WoW Tokens and other things were wrong too. Disabled my add-ons and then it all seemed to work .  ..

  • #8804

    So I'm a little confused...I'm trying to sell a level 32 item which has no competition on the AH. Auctioneer tells me I should sell it for 583 gold!? Where is it getting numbers like this?

  • #8809


    In my experience, it isn't a problem with Auctioneer. It's a case of a fool posting an item at a ridiculous price and this is the only scan info Auctioneer has seen so far. If this happens, I use 5 gold for armor and 10 gold for weapons. You can reduce as needed after the initial posting ends. Alternatively, check Wowhead for the drop rate to gauge the price.

  • #8807

    Generally, from your undercut settings and the market price.  But you can change the options for how it sets the base price, and how it adjusts the price when there is no competition (or just high priced competition). 

    If you post screenshots of the tooltip for the item (with the shift key held down), and your undercut settings, we can help further.

  • #8803

    Hello, so the undercutting option in appriaser does not seem to be working.  I post an item, I have undercutting turned on and it does not undercut. (I would like to be able to use the batch post option and have it undercut my competitors)  I also can't seem to find resale option

    I will post my pictures of the auction itself that it will not undercut, and my configuration.

    Item not being undercut

    This is my undercutting configuration:

    Undercut config

    Appraiser Tab (Not sure if this has anything to do with it) There are three pictures showing my whole configuration for this section)

    1 appraiser config


    Also as you can see, there is no search tab and resale config option. Was this removed?



    Any help would be great.  I would very much like to get atleast the undercutting option working.  It is taking more time posting them one at a time instead of being able to batch post them and having it undercut my competitors. 

  • #8808

    Ideally, to help figure out the undercut issue, I need to see a screenshot of the tooltip of the item being listed (with the shift key held down), so we can see what market price is being calculated for the item. 

    In this case, based on the Appraiser listing screenshot, I'm guessing it was about 225g.  You have your maximum undercut set to 69%.  That means the lowest it will undercut to is ~70g.  The cheap auctions in your screenshot are all less than that, so they are ignored.  There are no other auctions listed for less than the market price of 225g, so the undercutter will now actually raise the price above that.

    Your overcut option is set to 46%.  So the max price it will list for is 331g.  The other higher priced auctions are even higher than that, so Appraiser lists them for 331g each.

    If you want to undercut those 45g auctions, you need to either: (1) fix the market price of the item by scanning it more and/or clearing the stats for that item first, or (2) increase the max undercut amount to higher than 69%.

    Both the general search and resale search options appear for me.  To get to them, you need to click on the search tab, then open up the Options heads (for general options), or click the resale searcher for the resale options.

    <p>Hi! I get auctioneer to work with one char, but when I check the AH on another char, Auctioneer doesn't seem to be 'active', I get the normal AH UI .. and I can't see it in the "Interface" menu so I was wondering what the basic command was to access setup. Thanks!</p>

  • #8806


    Make sure Auctioneer and all its dependencies have a gold checkmark on the Addon screen.  This will ensure it loads for all characters.

    How to get mythic 725 iLvl items to work ins searches

    D:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Auc-Advanced\CoreConst.lua

    I changed line 148:  MAXITEMLEVEL = 710,


     MAXITEMLEVEL = 725,

    Seems to work for me but its a hack

  • #8801

    Yep, this is the right change to make for max ilevel - I'll be bumping it in a future 'official' change, but for now this'll work :)

  • #8799

    Hello i need help please,

    When using resale buyout auctioneer seems to jump randomly from item to item.. Say there are 10 items in row and i want to buy them all so i click on the first one, i press buyout and then auctioneer would just randomly swap do different item. it is very annoying not being able to buy multiple items without highlight just randomly fidgets around

  • #8795

    Auctioneer has with the last update of Wow all data which since 6 months were collected (purchases and sales; AH, Scan) extinguished .Wie this can happen and how I can protect my data to the next update which Wow published. My first sales in the new list were on 22.08.2015. I have also updated Auctioneer with new version from 27.07.2015, about 01/08/2015 .

  • #8797

    Sounds like you wiped your data when you cleared the cache, Interface and WTF folders as Blizzard tells us to do every update. I don't bother myself, unless it's causing a conflict, coz this also resets things like Silverdragon, and Gathermate

  • #8796

    As it happens to me ....  (A mi me sucede lo mismo)
