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 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.

    Nikk,

    Hi - big tanx for Auctioneer. I am interested in many/all of the bells and whistles. But they don't all seem to work for me. Problems that I have had.

    using Auctioneer Suite 5.4.4157a
    1- Search for common items using the Browser tab - sometimes get a No Items Found msg. Exit prog and restart and the items will then be found OK. This happens when I am selecting criteria on the left - I am not using the Name etc fields on top.
    2- Column Sort does not always sort all items - just sorts each page of items. Not sure if this happens with all columns - but it does with Min column.
    3- Search tab - Vendor and Resale Searches don't seem to show current items. More often than not the items shown can not be bid on because they no longer exist. I have confirmed this on the Browse tab. I have checked off almost all available choices on Options - realtime (real needs an upper case R). The only thing I have not checked is One Clik Buying.

    I'd certainly like to get these issues resolved, especially Vendor and Resale. Hopefully it's me and you can tell me what I'm doing wrong.

    Tanx again for a great product.

    Jothman,

    We are all experiencing the effects of a bug, even if you do not have Auctioneer installed, where the results of any AH search are suspect at best. This same thing occurred back when 3.0 was released and just after a couple of the other bigger patches- it is discussed pretty lengthy on the Blizz support forums, too. So, if this is anything like the previous times, after about a week or two, the results should begin to be more akin to what is actually present.

    As to the Searchers within SearchUI, those base the results on your most recent scan of the AH. With the current AH issues, there surely will be more "not seen"s popping up.

    The best thing to do is to run the "fast" GetAll scan, via the "Fast Forward" button to the right of the other scan control buttons. That will ensure that what you are searching is the most current, best data that is available to you.

    No matter how fast the scan, you are likely to see at least a few "not found"s, but once the AH -*hopefully*- goes back to normal, running the Searchers just after the scan will obtain the best results.

    Should there be any specifics not addressed, feel free to post on our main support boards, at http://Forums.Norganna.Org/ . Note: You will need an account, but sign-up takes about twenty seconds and we do not use anyone's information for nefarious purposes.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk

    Doncorneo,

    Sounds like you want just the Auctioneer and Informant downloads from our main site.

    As noted up in the "Description":
    "Looking for 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."

    Happy Sales,

    There is something wrong with auctioneer. Solid stone was listed at 2 silver, i bought it, and it was 30 silver. Mithril Bars were listed at 3 gold for a stack of 20, (which was ridiculously low), so I bought it, and it turned out to be 25 gold.
  • #3866
    Ulfer,

    Have not seen that, nor heard of any others experiencing anything where what they bid was different than what they received in the mail, if that is what you are saying.

    If you would, please post over on our main support forum, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/4 , and include a screen shot of the tooltip from any item you think is coming up wrong. Be sure to hold +Mouse-over, so that the complete tooltip is displayed. You can then place the screen shot on http://Up.Norganna.Org and then include the assigned link in your post.

    *You will need an account, but the process takes all of twenty seconds, and we do not use anyone's information for nefarious purposes.

    Just to ensure all is current, be sure to read and follow http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Installing and follow all of the steps laid out, then see if any other items are showing with "odd prices" or you are not getting the items that you bid on.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk

    Can anyone get the latest release to work? not working for me
  • #3864
    Malfias79,

    What, exactly, is not working?

    If no part of the Suite is working, try reading and following http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Installing .

    If that still does not work, try posting on our main support site, http://Forums.Norganna.Org , and include all of the steps you have taken up to that point and any errors you see.

    Hope you are up and running soon,

    Nikk

  • #3852
    hi... i dont see informant info in tooltip what to do ?
  • #3862
    Kekobeko,

    Anything added in 3.1 will not be reflected, yet. That is assuming that you have Informant enabled to run in the main WoW AddOns Control Panel- ensure that it has a 'gold' check mark beside it, not 'silver'.

    Basically, we wanted to ensure there was a version of the Suite that worked available and we will have another on the way shortly that includes the newly added/updated information, too.

    If you still do not see Informant output anywhere, and it's loading, click the "quill and paper" icon in SlideBar and ensure that you did not accidentally disable the display of the Informant information.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk

    Hello,

    Im having a problem in appraiser (just updated tonight) I set the min bid and buy out price, but when I post, all my items post for 49 99 99 - min and buyout. I looked to see if something was set somewhere, but didn't find anything. i did notice if I move the slider for subtract fixed amount, the price noted above changes. I tried -99 to +99 and the amount varies by like a few copper... I think this might have something to do with it, but im not sure. How can I fix this?

    TY!
  • #3851
    Raider4evr,

    Based on your description, be sure to check that you never enabled/changed the rounding options all the way at the bottom of the "Appraiser" settings. The rounding was always sort of hit or miss and was fixed in the previous version, so many did not notice that it has now begun doing the work- obviously, had it been set on in the past, it would now be adjusting the pricing, according to its settings.

    UnderCut settings, to ensure they are as you would like them to be. The Matchers can also change the pricing you enter, so it's just another place to check.

    Let us know of your progress,

    Nikk
  • #3869
    Thanks for the help NECHCKN! It was the rounding slider (actually I guess all three at the bottom) Working fine now!

    Thanks!

    Malvenue,

    As noted in my reply to your message of 2 days ago:

    "Malvenue,

    That is an issue with CraftList2, likely not taking the recent changes into account.

    So, either update that or disable it."

    Best of luck with that,

    Nikk
