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.

When updating, this time...

Be sure to remove all old files- follow the instructions at http://wiki.norganna.org/Installing .

Please, do not post errors here; instead, kindly visit http://forums.norganna.org/ , our Support Forum, and be sure to search before posting- many questions and errors reported are duplicates.

For the fastest service, various questions are addressed in the Auctioneer FAQ, http://wiki.norganna.org/Auctioneer/FAQ . We have gone to great lengths to ensure that the most common issues have been addressed

Questions, comments, concerns, alphas/betas (when available), bug reports, the occasional bit of praise?

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:

Appraiser

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).

CompactUI

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!

SearchUI

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

BeanCounter

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

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

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 .

Conclusion

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 .

    Any chance you can release Swatter and Slidebar as separate addons?

  • #8432

    Are you asking if we can remove them from this package and ONLY distribute them separately, or whether we'd be willing to also just distribute them as separate standalone items?

    You used to be able to download them separately from our website, but I see now that that is broken.  I'll see about getting it fixed.

  • #8424

    Is there a way to get the appraiser to ignore weapon/armor suffixes like "of the tiger" and "of the stormblast" and if not would you consider adding it? I used appraiser to set prices on some transmog greens for the first time without realising it counts these as seperate items and ended up setting many pieces significantly higher than others with different suffixes (I know it was a failing on my part, I blame it on my inventory tracker ignoring the suffixes causing me to expect other addons to do the same) and I'm expecting to lose a bit in deposits from failed auctions. Not ignoring suffixes means I have to check the auction house for each and every green maualy instead of letting appraiser do its job.

  • #8431

    Not at the moment.  When auctioneer was first created, different versions could have wildly different uses (and thus wildly different prices), so treating them separately was actually a feature.

    Nowadays, though, as you know most of the random suffix greens are just disenchant fodder.  Some of our stats might lump them together, but most don't, and appraiser doesn't yet either.  It's one of the things in our to do list, though.

  • #8422

    i´m not able to ctrl+c shown bugs in swatter. character window opens instead

  • #8423

    yes you can ...just watch your mouse...keep it on swatter and you can copy instead of opening your character window...

    just dont bring your mouse to somewhere outside of swatter cuz then it will open the character window ...if you know what i mean and it works fine

    Re: Auctioneer - Appraiser

    I was wondering how the pre-set lists work with regards to sales? Is the data based on the AH data scan for sales, or is it personal sales? From what I understand it's AH data based, but I was wondering if it was customizable to personal sales. If not, is there a way to undercut the suggested prices without doing so manually?

    I'd also like to know why the "enable price matching" incrased the values of the potential sale, rather than decreases them - as I would have expected since it's supposed to deal with undercut prices. At least, that's what I was hoping it did.

    What I'd like to be able to do, is scan the AH for the sale suggestions, then drop in my sales at a lower value (even to a large extent)  in order to shift the goods a lot quicker. What I've been doing is just listing my goods myself, the old fashioned way.

    In other words, I'd like to be able to get the data of previous sales (as from the AH scan) and more particularry, those currently in the AH and then undercut them by a large enough amount to almost guarentee a sale. Kinda like the old system, where it had a slide percentage bar for undercutting. At least, I believe that was Auctioneer.

    As it currently stands, Actioneer seems to be ignoring the listed prices from the information of other people's auctions in the pop-up list, and suggesting a (usually) much higher price. Why would I want to list my stuff higher than what's currently in the AH?

    Is it just my setting, or what? This is what I'm currently getting from a scan not more than 1 minute old. As you can see, the suggested prices are much higher than what's available in the AH

    http://tinypic.com/r/oavhnd/8

    So yeah, some values are crazy OP like the pic above, and others work fine with no real reason for the discrepency. I've taken to just setting the vendor price for now, and manually trying in an undercut to the refreshed value. And I do have to refresh, coz half the time they pop up blank

    Why will I not get a Yes for my registration in the forums.norganna.org/ ? Here I won´t get an answer for my question.

     

  • #8416

    Is there a way to merge battle pet postings of different levels in the Post tab?

    When I go to post a pet that's level 2, it does not compare to other posted pets that are level 1 or 3-25. Likewise, rare quality pets are not compared vs uncommon pets. It would be cool to see a better comparison window when posting battle pets to check competition level, quality and breeds.

  • #8420

    Not at this time.

    It is not possible in the Appraiser tab either - but if this option does get added in future, it is more likely to go into Appraiser than the Post tab.

  • #8415

    why does the addon keep telling me the depenancy is missing... any ideas

  • #8418

    Go to your AddOns screen an mouse-over Auctioneer - it should tell you what the dependencies are, and which one is missing. Then you need to find and either re-enable or reinstall them.

    It's usually Stubby.

  • #8412

    Updated to the latest version and discovered that the EasyBuyout and EasyBid function of the addon no longer work. Tested it on four different systems and all had the same issue. It would appear to be something in the Auc-Advanced file as when I used replaced it with the one from the last update the functionality returned. Anything that can be done to fix this issue for the next update would be appreciated.

  • #8419

    Try clicking at different points on the item's listing - some areas have special functionality, and don't pass through clicks to EasyBuy.

  • #8411

    Hey all, I´ve got a problem with this Addon. Since I reinstalled this Addon I have problems with the BeanCounter. For some Items I can´t see the price I paid for them and the price for the sale. So I can´t see how much earnings I created. When I looked for an item in BeanCounter the date you can see is always from year 2035 to 1970. I cannot change this.

    Can someone help me? Please! Sorry for my english, I hope i could describe my problem so someone can help.
