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 .

    Okay folks, the SearchUI for me appears to be entirely broken. I can certainly click the Search button on any of the search pages, but it will return no data. The table with the search results stays empty, simple as that, without even a single error.

  • #8408

    Is it possible to mute the sound the BeanCounter makes when finishing the mailbox scan? I could not find an option but hope there might be one. The reason I want ot mute it is because it is very loud and annoying. The same sound is played at the auction house sometimes too. Thanks!

  • #8407
    Scan while not in AH?

    Is there an way to do a scan of the auction house without actually having to be AT the auction house? I have been looking but theres so much info in the UI that its kinda difficult to find. I went to the FAQ as well and noticed a GetAll/Fast Scan capability. Where is this in the UI? My scan is currently sitting at an hour long scan. Is this because its the first scan I have ever done? Is there ways to speed it up so I am not sitting in the AH for an hour?

    1. It is impossible to use the AH without being at an auctioneer, this is a game limitation (you can't use the AH while out and about)

    2. Scan time is based on your computer's power and the current strain on the game servers.

    3. Fast scan is intended for fast computers, at the top left of the AH window on the browse page there is a double right arrow ">>". It is located to the right of the stop ( square ), start scan (play button), and pause scan (pause button) buttons and before the Real time scan (magnifying glass).

     

    If you look at the second preview image here on curse, the blue highlighted button is the one you're looking for.

    Is there anyway to automatically sell the items that are suggested to be sold at a vendor at a vendor instantly? If not it's a feature I would really like to see I've used some add-ons that sell to vendors but they only sell grey items.

  • #8403

    Did some more testing - reverted back to AuctioneerSuite-5.18.5433 - error message has dissappeared and my profession window acts normally...

  • #8402

    I still think auctioneer is causing issues with the default-ui (and like some of the other folk on here i dont seem to have rights to post on their site even though i've created an account...)

    I disabled tradeskill info (and also completely deleted it) and receive the error when i logon with auctioneer enabled - although i can choose what to craft it seems to get stuck on highlighting a 'default' item - which means if i try and use 'craft all' i can only make the number of what is currently highlighted...

    No, I do not believe we are causing any issue with the default interface.  The error you reported above is coming from ProfitMax, another addon you are running which also makes a function call which we no longer support.

    It looks like this addon is no longer being maintained, so I'm not sure if it will continue to work as expected.  But we are going to make a change to Auctioneer so that it fails a little more gracefully, anyway.

  • #8401

    See my post below regarding auctioneer errors since the latest build and tradeskillinfo.  (Click Here to see.)  I also posted the same thing on the project page for tradeskill info and got the following response.  (Click Here to see that Response.)

    TSI is using a deprecated function call which we had previously warned we would be eliminating.  (And it looks like they are/have released a new version which no longer does so.)

    We will be releasing a fix that more gracefully deals with this issue shortly.  It will be available as a preview build on our site first while it gets some testing, then we'll release it here on CG.

    As a side note, I have also removed some other posts here which are reporting the same issue, to clean up a bit.  Hope no one takes that the wrong way - we do appreciate your feedback here!  Just trying to make it easier for everyone to find our responses.

    The main reason I don't use this add on is the problem listed in the message below as well:

    When you do a search for an individual item, it doesn't sort according to price (or percentage).  So you can end up paying too much if don't page through everything.  (Sometimes a daunting task)

    While you offer a solution (scan the AH first), that is a major inconvenience, especially with the dc issue that can happen when fast-scanning.

    You need the ability to gather all the items and sort.  Yes, you may have to scan page after page, but it will give better information.  Aucutionator does this and it is very, VERY handy.

    A bulk purchase ability would also be nice...

  • #8393

    So I'm a long time lover of this add-on, but I'm recently coming across a very weird error.  Whenever I try to scan the AH on my server (Stormrage - US), the normal search takes about 40 minutes to an hour and crashes before completing and the quicker search crashes the game instantly.

    It has never done this before and I think it may be that I transfered to such a high pop server.  Is there anything I can do to rememdy this?  As is, the mod isn't useable for me.

  • #8395

    Try running the following, then trying a new scan: "/auc clearscan ALL"

     

  • #8388

    Hi Guys,

    I Need help from you.. Whenever i search for an item... i list it to show lowest % first. For instance i will search for copper bar which goes at the moment at 80% of normal prices. BUT the problem is whenever i click on page 2. it shows even lower % for instance 70 which is obviously even lower than on the first page. Could you please help me set this up so i will filter the things from the lowest % from ALL pages of the item?
