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 .

    I seem to have run into a VERY odd problem regarding Auctioneer.. I recently had a corruption in my video card driver (thx Nvidia)and did the rollback + del my WTF etc.. that bliz said to do (like always, but it did fiX a prob WOW!) but after installing the last update it happend again.. Now, the error is a BSOD + REBOOT of my pc, but if i take out auctioneer, i don't get that error... Now granted this is a mem stack error & happens randomly.. # times in 2 hrs or 1 time in 2 days.. but it happens, I take out auctioneer, no errors or problems.. Is there a .lib that has an open leak or something else? thx, sorry for the long wind...

    Lordcalluborn,

    Nope, nothing nefarious hidden away.

    The scanning of the AH is what most likely is causing the behavior you note. We do what we can to keep the file size as small as possible, but there are still relatively large files generated from scanning the AH that are loaded into memory.

    Unfortunately, you will either have to find and fix the error on your system's end or forgo Auctioneer and, likely, a few other AddOns that require relatively large file sizes.

    Happy Sales,

    I'm not able to post for 24 hour periods, only 12 hour and 48 hours. When selecting 24 hours it appears to charge the fee for that period but then reflects an auction of 48 hours. How can I correct this?
  • #4134
    Bayesian,

    Sure you are. We are only able to obtain a few states from the AH, those being "Short" ("Medium" (30min-2h), "Long" (2h-12h), and "Very Long" (12h-48h).

    The goblins that run the AH system always get their cut. So, if you are being jabbed for 24 hours worth of fees, then it is being posted for that amount of time. If you are charged for 48 hours, then that is how long it will be posted.

    Hope that clears up any issues.

    Happy Sales,

    ***PLEASE: Read Before Clicking any link from a non-Author***

    Auctioneeros,

    There is a rash of "I find free Auctioneer @ www.xxx.com" type posts here at Curse. Although the Admins have been working overtime to combat them, they spring up quite fast.

    Do **not** click the links, or risk being taken to a site where malicious software will attempt to permeate your system.

    Obviously, you are free to do so, if you like, but now you know.

    Happy Sales,

    only someone who doesn't have brains would click on those.. who would want a virus or something like that on their computer? not me!
  • #4125
    Auctioneeros,

    We are pleased to release Auctioneer 5.5, which is fully compatible with World of Warcraft 3.1.x.

    * A single change this time, to ensure that the Auc-Util-FixAH, which forces the Blizzard "Browse" frame to the first page when searching.of results with each search, continues to function.
    ** This is an issue that any AH user will see, unless they are using Auctioneer- or another AddOn that forces the "correct" behavior.
    **Please, if you have any sort of decent grasp of any of the languages, we are in need of help localizing Auctioneer, Informant, and the other AddOns listed at http://Localizer.Norganna.Org .
    **"Registering" takes only moments and you can be on your way... it is quite simple. Even if you only have the time/inclination to help with a few translations, that will be better than what we have now for some of the locales.
    **Before starting, kindly take a look at http://forums.norganna.org/discussion/9517/translation-format/ for some basic thoughts.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    this mod is free.. don't need to pay for it -lol-
  • #4122
    In the version I recently downloaded Appraiser defaults the price to a full stack if the item is stackable. I prefer seeing the price of an individual item & to go from there. I have been editing the amount to 1 each time but it gets tedious when putting a lot of items up for auction. Is there a way to have it default to 1 item always? I thought I found a way in the configure part but it had no effect.
  • #4123
    Lambrica,

    Appraiser stores its settings in your Auctioneer profile, from the configuration windows and per item, so any items you had previously set to a different number will be saved already, until you change them, manually.

    Appraiser. That way, the settings you choose will be used for all items- even those you previously have posted at a different size.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk
  • #4124
    So each new item is going to default to a total stack until I change it? Because that's what it's been doing. On the Appraiser configure part I have the default as 1 but it's still giving me a total stack's price until I redo it.
  • #4127
    Lambrica,

    No, quite the opposite, as long as you set the default stack size in the options to 1, rather than Full.

    Make a new profile, set the option, and all of your items will come up in Appraiser with a size of one, unless you change it.

    Happy Sales,

    Thanks a fucking lot, Auctioneer.
    Thanks to this addon it sold 60 Titansteel bars for 30s.
    No clue how the hell this happened, but it crashed somehow.
    I couldn't cancel the Auctions because they '' Didn't excisted ''.
    Thanks for a big loss of 2k+ Gold.
    I suggest not to download this addon since it's crashing. -,-
  • #4120
    AquilaRanged,

    What do you mean the price was wrong? When you select an item to post, you are shown exactly the pricing that will be used.

    Sorry to hear you had difficulties, but there is no way for Auctioneer to post items for amounts different from those you select.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk
