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 .

Please, do not post errors here; instead, kindly visit , 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, . 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:


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).


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!


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


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 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 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 .


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.

    This is a great add-on, very useful. Keep it up. :)

    I am just wondering though, I was very fond of the enhanced tooltip part of this addon. Maybe I am mistaken and it wasn't a part of this add-on? I am almost positive it was.. I've glanced thru and I see nothing as to why it is no longer available? Any input to this would be great. Thanks :)
  • #4047

    EnhancedToolTip was our old tooltip library, that was phased out during WoW 2.0. We transitioned to LibExtraTip, that performs the same sort of functions, only with a lighter system resources footprint.

    Was there some feature you are unable to locate or something?

    Let us know.

    Happy Sales,

    * Read and follow http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Installing and use the download from our main site, via http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl/#preview , entitled "Auctioneer Suite" when you progress to the installation.
    * Once all set, start WoW.
    * Click the BeanCounter button on the SlideBar or the tab at the AH and click "Configure" then find and run the Database utility, Validate. (Do this for each realm/faction on which you play- not every character, but each realm/faction.)
    *See if the issue remains. If you are lucky, it will be gone.

    If not, then you will need to exit WoW, find ..\WorldofWarcraft\WTF\Account\{YourWoWAccountName}\SavedVariables, and rename BeanCounter.lua to OLD_BeanCounter.lua. This will impact your history, but, it means that the database was corrupt.

    Take this as a great opportunity to begin backing up your entire WTF directory, at least every other day, as that is where your local client stores settings and your AddOns store their settings and data. Detailed help is, again, available via our main site at http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Auctioneer/Backup . Although fairly stable, corruption happens for a number of reasons in that directory, so a known-good backup is very helpful.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4043

    If you totally disable SOCD, the error won't occur.

    There is an odd timing issue introduced and it is still being investigated.

    For now, go to the main Auctioneer Options and change the status of "Force Load Scan Data". If you have it off, turn it on, or vice versa.

    Hoping to have that addressed sometime soon, but no ETA.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4045
    Enabling 'Force Load Scan Data' fixed it. Even with SOCD on. Thx for the tip!
  • #4036
    guys i always want addons but when i go on wow its a temp file and i go into interface in WoW file and theres no addons so i cant download any addons can someone please reply pleaseeee im in dire need pleasee
  • #4038

    The basic WoW install has no folder, or at least it never did.

    Simply create a folder under ..\WorldofWarcraft\ entitled AddOns, so then when you go through the directory, it will be like C:\WorldofWarcraft\AddOns. You then simply unzip any addon you like into that folder.

    The Curse Client will do most of that for you, too.

    For more, read http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Installing , over at our main site.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4035
    Is there any way to only download the POST module, i.e., just the bit to post multiples of items and set the undercut to 1c, either here or on the website.
  • #4037

    From 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."

    That is actually something quite a few folks miss. We have boards here, on our main site, and over at http://WoWInterface that we support, so we limit the number of official upload sites to maintain a bit of sanity.

    That will get you the basic scanner, that you can choose to use, or not, and the basic "Post" frame.


    Happy Sales,

  • #4039

    Thanks very much. Sorry for my inability to read curse descriptions :D

    Now I'm off to post a bazillion single item auctions, via your website of course.
  • #4032
    I'm trying to figure out why auctioneer does not give me the market price. Can anyone help?
  • #4034

    As noted up in the Description, the Market Price will begin to appear for items that Auctioneer has the data needed to make such recommendations. We normally recommend scanning twice per play session in order to obtain any decent values.

    Until you have enough data, you can enable the display of the "Simple" statistic. Click "Configure" at the top of the "Browse", "Post", or "Appraiser" frame, select Statistics, then "Simple", and enable the display of the data in the tooltip.
