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 .

Happy Auctioneering!!

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

Bugfix changes from previous 5.21 Release:

* Fixes Informant error at vendors
* Usable items and exact match filters now (mostly) works as expected on CompactUI
* Fixes some BeanCounter issues, especially with mail (English only, until we get new localization translations)
* Prices now accept 5 digits
* Sidebar matcher details now showing again

* 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.

    Love auctioneer! But I wish there could be more short-cut quick-actions (like the Alt key being held to post items).

    Specifically, I'm requesting: 

    Holding CTRL (or SHIFT+ALT) would post the item at the minimum stack size and maximum number, and subsequently double-clicking while holding the same would post AND create the auction(s). this would go well with things like glyphs or materials that stack but would be better sold as single items. <-- This is a highly desired action!!!!!!!!

    pressing a key combo (such as SHIFT+enter?) that would "Create Auction", so I don't have to move the mouse to click on the button on the pane. This would make life easier after using the tab key to adjust prices, then not needing to drag the mouse away from my bag.

    having trouble with this addon when i try and post something to sell in AH the addon undercuts the lowest price by way lower then what it should. Example is the lowest price  that a player is selling their item will be 46 gold and when i post my item it will want to sell it for only 9 gold? ive tried changing the settings and it still does it ive even set a fixed value to undercut and nothing can someone help me thanks.

  • #8167

    What is the average cost of this item?

    The addon probably undercuts the average cost not the actual lowest price...

  • #8165

    Hey, yeah, i use this a lot, what i meant was, say i want to only own a maximum of 50 Wild Jade, it would be cool to set a total owned threshold so when you click purchase all it will only purchase them up to that threshold, rather than clicking on them one by one. Prob way to complicated to implement then unless it worked along side altaholic or something to know what you have in your banks and bags etc.

  • #8162

    Love this addon and used it for several years

    The only thing i miss is a feature Hide/Show PVP Items when Browsing AH

     

  • #8164

    i feel u pain too dude....

  • #8161

    Hey

    I use the snatch feature a lot and also the batch post feature, but is there any way of perform a cross between the two?  Like a batch buy,...ie, search for your items on snatch, click purchase all, but then be able to cap the total amount of that item your character has?

    Cheers

    Ste

  • #8163

    hey dudes...

     

    thx for all..

    i use a looooottt u addon.. and about a week i discover TradeSkillMaster Addon Suite and it comes with a loot mudules and etc etc etc,,, but.. what i really like him, is that u dont need scan AH over and over again everytime u go there... they launch a app (for mac and windows)  that supply the source of the addon with informations collected via blizzard web api and they update every hour, so, u have always a updated data about a stuf... but... the point is.. ( they even try coppy u search features like vendor and Desenchant.. but they did terrible...) i like to know if the is any possibility that u integrate auctionner DB with that addon DB called (AuctionDB  its a separated module of a principal addon, thats why i think its possible u use they DB, because in they addon, we are allowed to use a auctionner DB instead they DB...)

     

    or if the answer is negative, could u guys make something like they app, toh our data stay updated even when dont go to the AH ?

     

    Thx again...

     

    PS. sorry for my bad english....

    I love the addon, but when I log in it's no longer loading and just displays error codes. Like the same 77 errors everytime. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I'm pretty stumped. Advice?

    Uninstall completely and reinstall from the latest release, something went wrong with your install.

  • #8148

    for the past week, enchantrix has been auto-d/e'ing my trinkets, WHILE they were equipped! i caught her in the act. (top trinket, i believe it's slot 13)

    i have lost 4 good ones (each a different trinket) and all i have left are junk. the WoW gm finally replied and said a mod had to have done it. enchantrix is the only one capable of d/eing. they said to completely delete the mod, not just disable it.

    i dont really want to do that. i am completely dependant on auctioneer and it COMES with enchantrix, which i also like. i have always had it loaded but the auto-de disabled. i kept checking this week and NOTHING is supposed to be de'd according to the settings.

    2 of the times it happened while i was farming at half-hill (MoP). the other 2, i didn't see when it happened. it is only happening on my main and while she was in MoP

    (also, when it happened, the action bar with the de button wasnt even up, it was hidden)

    i use curse as i am not tech savvy and it does all the updating for me

    please help

    just 2 hours later, it just de'd trinket #5, disabled. WHILE it was in bottom slot, #14 slot i think. fine im deleting your wonderful mod. i cant afford you

    btw, i get no warning, no error
