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...

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 .

    I have no idea how to use this.. any videos or anything? maybe i set it up the wrong way..
  • #4139

    Sure, use addon&aq=7&oq=Auctioneer there are quite a few, some better than others.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4109
    Is there an option to reset the database of auctions prices? I am using the addon since half a year and due to the fact that the ratio of low to high Level Gamers changed from 90:10 to 15:85 the prices completely changed (low level raw material became rar and due to this very expensive while endgame stuff is cheap and available like hell). At the moment market prices the addon calculates for me are completely useless.
  • #4110

    Sure, just delete all files beginning with Auc-Stat from ..\WorldofWarcraft\WTF\Account\{YourWoWAccountName}\SavedVariables .

    BTW, the pricing will adjust, but, as with most statistics, it takes time. If there are only certain items that you would like to reset, simply enter /auc clear {ItemLink} at the command/chat prompt. Regardless, removing the files is all you need to do to begin completely anew.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4113
    There are no Auc-Stat only Auc-Advanced Files...
  • #4114

    Do a full system search for Auc-Stat then.

    Those files hold the statistical data and are located within that SavedVariables folder. Without them, Auctioneer will not provide any pricing until you re-scan the AH.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk :shades:
  • #4106
    Does anyone know a way to only enable bid percentage column and nothing else with this addon? That is the only part of Auctioneer I use (I have other addons for posting and such) and this feature is missing from auctioneer lite. Thanks!
  • #4104
    Small Feast is reporting vendor value of 1 gold each when it's actually 25 silver each.
  • #4105

    It was, but since the price changed, we updated it.

    Install the latest version of the Suite.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4098
    Maybe it was somewhere but can't find it :(
    Every time im logging in and mouseover any item (even bags sometimes) im getting big window in the middle of screen:
    "The Auc-ScanData storage module could not be loaded: DISABLED"

    And in chat window:
    "Warning, overwriting AucScanData with AucAdvancedScanSimpleData"

    Not big issue, but really annoying :/ I was trying turning on and off every possible modules, trying to find some options in Auctioneer Options ... ;(
    Please help :)
  • #4102

    Sounds like one of two things, or a combination.

    First, ensure that the Auc-Util-Scandata is set to load with a gold check mark on the main WoW AddOns Control Panel, accessed from the "Addons" button in the lower left of the character selection screen.

    Go in game and see if the error returns. If so, close WoW and go to your ..\WorldofWarcraft\WTF\Account\{YourWoWAccountName}\SavedVariables and look for Auc-ScanData.lua, right click and ensure it is not set to write-only. If it was, then head back in game to test it out.

    Now, if neither of those gets you far, head back into the file system and simply delete Auc-ScanData.lua, it is only the most recent AH snapshot, the statistics are stored elsewhere, and with the error, it means it is not being updated, any way.

    Let us know of your findings,

  • #4108
    Wheeeeyyy ... first step works.
    I had turned-on only Auc-Auctioneer (core), and Auc:Util:FixAH.
    Turned on only Auc-ScanData, and error dissapeared :)

    Thanks a lot :)

    Have you logged into Ragnaros? When you do, BCNT will try to update and validate the DB.

    If it is not, click the BCNT tab, then Configure, and run the Validation tool. Log out/back in and see if the error remains.

    If you have no BCNT tab when logging in, then your file is likely corrupt and beyond the help of the validation tool. You will need to go into the files system to ..\WorldofWarcraft\WTF\Account\{YourWoWAccountName}\SavedVariables and delete/rename BeanCounter.lua and BeanCounter.lua.bak. Once done, open WoW, log in and then go from there.

    Happy Sales,

  • #4094

    We are pleased to release Auctioneer 5.5.427a, which is fully compatible with World of Warcraft 3.1.x.

    Roughly 60 changes this time, including saving column movement and sorting in BeanCounter and Appraiser, with more modules on the way. We have also created a special module to help our users deal with the issue where searches on the “Browse” frame do not automatically show the first page of results. Also, a major change to allow Outliers to display in the Appraiser frame has been implemented. This always caused some confusion, so the decision was made to allow those outliers to display but keep them from affecting the statistics, as always. This way, folks can see all of the competition but not have to worry about them poisoning their data.

    Some other highlights include:
    *Auctioneer: Corrected a number of pop-up tooltip items, including adding them to Localizer. Completed the background changes needed to allow serverKey to function as intended. This clears the way for eventual cross-faction pricing to, optionally, be shown in the tooltip, et cetera.
    **SearchUI: The “Reset” button, that clears all Searcher settings will now require users to hold CTRL+Shift+Alt to help ensure that they realize they will be resetting all SearchUI settings. Also, implement the code to allow Searchers to select a given Statistics module, the individual Searchers will have access to the code in the next release. Fixed some outstanding issues that were causing errors. The permanent “ignore” function should now function appropriately as far as stack size/price is concerned. Revamped the interface of the Snatch Searcher to make it a bit easier to use, some additional changes will be coming in the next release.
    *BeanCounter: Changes to help BeanCounter better track failed auctions. Note: There appears to be some server issues that result in the necessary information not being reliably sent all the time, we will watch the situation and update the next release with any needed changes.* Corrected an incompatibility due to a function change in Altoholic.
    *Enchantrix: Added an option to show or hide reagent information. Fixed an issue due to the recent changes by Blizzard that resulted in bank bags appearing like any other and causing the AutoDE feature to sometimes recommend items for processing numerous times.
    *Informant: Data has been updated for WoW 3.1 and beyond. Added a new function set that allows other AddOns to obtain vendor data that is included in Informant, such as location, what items they sell, et cetera.
    *All of the very latest http://Localizer.Norganna.Org files have been added, so all of the updates we have, you will see in your localized client.
    **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 for some basic thoughts.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk and the rest of the family at Norganna’s AddOns
