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 .

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.

    Enchantrix is not showing that certain purples you get while leveling disenchant for Sha Crystals... so sick of getting sha crystals. I mostly blame bliz for the stupidity of that idea, but it would be nice if enchantrix showed it correctly so that I am aware when I go to DE stuff. Thanks for making such great addons. 

  • #8679

    Blizz changed the d/e tables a bit ago, and we're still collecting the new info.  Hopefully soon.

  • #8665

    Hi! I was wondering if I'm the only one having this issue, and after googling it I can't seem to find an answer. My beancounter incorrectly shows how much my profit/loss amount is. I only have about 180 gold total to my name, but on the beancounter screen it says that I have lost 450+ gold! I've been solely scanning the AH and using the "Vendor" search function, just buying and vendoring gear and items. 

    Do I have it configured incorrectly? I have the automagic set to autosell the items I buy specifically through the "Vendor" search but it only works a little bit of the time. Does Beancounter not track what items I've sold to vendors? It's entirely possible I don't have it configured correctly, I'd just like to get accurate overall profit/loss information. 

    P.S. I LOVE THIS SUITE, I have used it for -years-. If you do not use this addon suite, try it out and use it! I've made 40k+ gold through Cataclysm just by using some scanning features and figuring out if I should prospect/mine/refine ore or mill herbs etc. Some really great stuff in this! :D I'm just starting on a new server with some friends and am having trouble after coming back from a long break.

    You're correct, we don't track vendoring items.  BeanCounter was originally/mainly intended to be able to compare your P&L when using the resale function - i.e. buy for X, then relist and sell for Y. 

  • #8664

    Can someone please help me?! I downloaded auctioneer and have added it to my addons folder. When i start the game up the addons option does not even appear. It's like it's not even decting the addon. It also does it for rarity also, but when i download auctionator it detects it. How do i fix?

  • #8666

    probably you had it installed in the past, disabled and then deleted it. The game remembers disabled addons even if you delete them.

    On the character select screen click the addons button and enable auctioneer-related addons

  • #8692

    if the addons button does not appear then it means that the game is not detecting other addons than the standard Blizzard ones. This means you're installing Auctioneer in the wrong folder, probably because you have multiple World of Warcraft installs.

  • #8668

    Make sure you can see the FOLDER structure within the addons folder .. a lot of the time folks mistakenly put in the main holding folder that contains the all the addon folders .. you need to make sure to extract them so that they appear similar to the following structure.

    \World of Warcraft\interface\addons



    If it looks like the above then you will see the AddOns button appear .. if not then you may have installed then into a different install of WoW.

  • #8667

    yes but the addons button doesn't even appear

  • #8662

    Here is a screen cap of Auctioneer causing WoW to crash during a quick get all scan, this is during the phase 3 part where the memory being used spiked up to 435mb and when it went higher this is when you get disconnected or WoW crashes.
    Click the image to enlarge and read the error message Auctioneer gives right before WoW crashes.

    Auctioneer gives a CoreScan.lua:1546: memory allocation error: block too big.

    Then WoW crashes with a error #134 and gives a LUA PANIC: unprotected error in call to Lua API (memory allocation error: block too big)

    So right now it's either you're disconnected or WoW crashes with this error.

    Please fix this or advise how to avoid this from happening and tell me how to make it stop.

    From what I'm seeing others say and what is happening to them.

    It seems like this problem started happening when Feathermoon and Scarlet Crusade did the server merge,
    then of course when patch 6.0 hit and then WoD released the server population has went from being medium to low to being medium to high.... and people on high population servers are seeing the Auctioneer addon use to much memory when getting to the phase 3 part of the scan it does and this is causing the disconnects or makes WoW crash.

    I have also had WoW crash over the last few days (twice) while trying to quick scan the AH.

    What's strange is that after it crashes I start to receive an "out of memory" error when I start up WoW (in game) concerning the addon Clique.

    I have the same problem after Auctioneer crashes WoW, Clique will not work and WoW tells me I don't have enough memory to run it.
    The only way to fix this is to uninstall Clique and reinstall it and go through setting it all up again which is a pain in the ass and very annoying.

  • #8660

    Maybe there is a fix for the dc during the quick scan.

    Before use the quick scan, open and close, the "configure" menu. Just open it and then close it. Now use the quick scan.

    I read it on norganna forum and till now i did't have a dc :)

  • #8657

    It won't work at all. When I download and put it in my addons folder and then up open WoW it doesnt even detect it. Is there something im missing? All other addons i have downloaded recently are working fine and appear.
