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 .

Happy Auctioneering!!

Nikk and the rest of the Team at Norganna's AddOns

Bugfix changes from 5.21b Release:
* Fixed problem with undercut on Post tab
* Updates to Enchantrix yields
* Additional Scanner throttle tweaks, to try to mitigate the issues with disconnects during Fast Scans
* Tweaks to garbage collection to try to mitigate memory allocation crash issues
* Preparatory clean-up for the move to a single AH model

* Next and Prev buttons not showing up properly when using skins such as ElvUI - needs to be fixed in your skinning addons. Until these skinning addons are corrected, you can either disable CompactUI, or disable skinning the AH in your skinning addon

* Some attempts to fix the disconnection issues some users see when using a Fast Scan
** New Scanner setting - "Throttle Scanning stage during fast scans" - try this and see if it helps.
** When you enable this setting, you should probably change a few other settings first:
** Set FPS back to around 25 (Throttle effectively quadruples the FPS setting)
** Set Time-to-Live to 5 or less
** Set Unresolved Auctions Tolerance up to 10 or more
** (Slowing down Scanning too much can result in unresolvable auctions - these two settings mitigate that a bit, at the expense of permitting a tiny number of 'errors' to be ignored)
** As usual, if you're having issues, try using a less populated AH, or scanning at off-hours, and see if that helps with your issue.

    I really don't want to have to register on another forum to report an issue:

    Date: 2015-03-12 22:03:43
    ID: 2
    Error occured in: Stubby
    Count: 1
    Message: Error: Original call failed after running hooks for: ContainerFrameItemButton_OnModifiedClick
    ..\FrameXML\ItemButtonTemplate.lua line 115:
    Attempt to access forbidden object from code tainted by an AddOn
    (tail call): ?
    [string "*:OnClick"]:10:
    [string "*:OnClick"]:1
    [C]: ?

    This happens to me whenever I try to use the new Share interface, specifically when I shift-click on a specific item I'd like to share or when I click the button in the chat window to share something when it happens or when it's looted. I have tried turning off all my addons except for Auctioneer and its dependencies and it still occurs. When I disable Stubby, I'm able to use the new Twitter share feature properly. This started happening (obviously) in 6.1.

  • #8690

    I was wondering if it's possible to integrate auctioneer's tooltip informations like "market price" etc. inside the original wow tooltip so that it can inherit TipTap's features . I found this kind of option inside Informant and Enchantrix ("embed info into the in-game tooltip") but I can't find it anywhere inside auc's tooltip options. Thank you for your help.

  • #8689

    Since the 6.1 patch, Auctioneer's additional item tooltip no longer "pushes up" the main item tooltip, for items in bags located close to the bottom of the screen.  Instead it overlaps bliz's tooltip, making both difficult to read.   

    Is there a fix for this? 


    EDIT:  So I changed the Tooltip dropdown for Enchantrix, Informant, & Auctioneer to Show only "When Shift is Pressed" (had to change this setting in all three places).  Now it only overlaps on-demand.

    can you guide me in how you managed to change all the proper settings?  I attempted it and still getting that overlap. Thanks!

    You have to make a similar change in three places.  In each case, set the dropdown values to your own preference(s) :


    1. Open the Auctioneer configure dialog (from the Gold Coins icon on your mini-map or a SlideBar/ButtonFrame, if installed).  Auctioneer does NOT appear in the Interface -> Addons listing.
    2. Select the "Tooltip" Tab
    3. Set the "Show the Tooltip" dropdown to "When Shift is Pressed"


    1. Open the Enchantrix configure dialog (from the Pink Gem icon on your mini-map or a SlideBar/ButtonFrame, if installed).  Enchantrix does NOT appear in the Interface -> AddOns listing.
    2. Select the "General" Tab
    3. Set the "Show Tooltip" dropdown to "When Shift is Pressed"


    1. Open the Informant configure dialog (from the White Pen&Paper icon on your mini-map or a SlideBar/ButtonFrame, if installed).  Informant also does NOT appear in the Interface -> AddOns listing.
    2. Select the "General" Tab
    3. Set the "Show Tooltip" dropdown to "When Shift is Pressed"

    (Alternately, you could simply disable Enchantrix & Informant from your AddOns config dialog, if you don't use them.  They're sub-categories of the Auctioneer Addon.)

    Having the same issue, bit annoying for sure

  • #8691

    I'm having exactly the same problem especially when "roll loot" frames inside dungeons display an item close to the bottom. the auc tooltip completely covers the item's text making it impossible to read.

  • #8688

    Hi, I´d like to have a question cleared up, if someone could help me I'll be thankful.

    I have two Battlenet Accounts on the same computer, so, my addon folder it's the same. My question is: When I make a scan on AH, should I need to do in both accounts or the info received by the addon is shared between the battlenet accounts?

    I am asking this because in the path C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account I have two folders, one for each account, and inside the folder "SavedVariables" (present in each folder previously mentioned) I have the files of AH.

  • #8693

    the saved data variables file structure is different, so no.. they are not sharing the same AH data, you need to scan on both.  (Unless you use addons like TSM-Wowuction and auc-stat-wowuction, that use external data sources for statistics).

    Has anybody heard when the new update can be expected?

  • #8686
    Buggy Appraiser integration with Bean Counter!

    I would also love to report a REALLY annoying issue/bug regarding Appraiser integration with Bean Counter:

    Whenever Appraiser automatically selects an item (when the "Show: Hidden" and "Show: Auctions" checkboxs are deselected), because the last item selected had been put up for auction or hidden, Bean Counter does NOT update the selection, meaning you need to MANUALLY DESELECT AND RESELECT (doubleclick) the already automatically selected item in Appraiser in order to see your Bean Counter statistics for that particular item, because otherwise, it shows the freshly auctioned/hidden item's statistics; this current (as of March 1st, 2015)  above described behavior is really useless, since you already auctioned the item (or hid it), meaning you're not concerned about its statistics for the time being and would rather deal with the next item selected.

    I hope this bug report is intelligible for you guys, even though a bit long-winded.



  • #8685
    Base item list, please!


    Any news on how's the development of the "base item list" in Appraiser coming along?

    I would really appreciate it being done.

    If I want to list my Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect as a twink item (it's not; it's just for example's sake), then I'm interested in viewing a list of prices for "Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect", so I can decide whether to post my item or not and for what price for that exact item; however, if I I want to list my Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect as a transmog item, then I'm at the very least interested in viewing a list of prices for all "Bloodwoven Boots" (regardless if they're "... of Intellect", "... of Stamina", or "... of the Bear" etc.); ideally, I'd like to see a transmog module of Appraiser that would group the prices based on the their look, so if I activate the transmog module and Refreshed my Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect, I'd see a list of all Bloodwoven Boots, Nightsky Boots, Shadoweave Boots, Highborne Footpads, etc. of ANY suffix, but I understand that this particular functionality is a far cry from completion (I'd be ecstatic to be wrong, though!).

    If I highlight my Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect right now, I see a small note on the left side of Appraiser under the item highlighted, reading "0 (2 base)", meaning that there are no "Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect" on the AH currently, but there are 2 base "Bloodwoven Boots" with random suffixed (that are not "... of Intellect"); now, what I'd love to have in Appraiser is a functionality that would allow me to, for example, CTRL+LMBClick the selected item icon in Appraiser to toggle between a list of all base items (in this case, all "Bloodwoven Boots", regardless of suffix) and all specific items (in this case, all "Bloodwoven Boots of Intellect").

    Do you see this possible and if so, when, approximately?

  • #8682

    Is anyone else's auctioneer completely not working?  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times but auctioneer doesn't work at all.  It's like I don't have it downloaded, there are no extra tabs in the auction, no prices in tool tips, etc.  I think it started happening about a week ago.

    When I look at my add-ons in WOW Auctioneer is checked like it's enabled, but it's greyed out.

    Any help with this would be very appreciated.

    SOLVED: I figured out that I had the addon's Stubby and Swatter disabled.  I don't know what they do, but when I enabled them auctioneer worked again.

    It just hasn't been updated for the 6.1

  • #8684

    For me it stopped working before 6.1, but hopefully the 6.1 update will fix it.
