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 .

    Artemisthemp,

    Yes, Jewel crafting took quite a while to be added but we have the framework in place to better deal with such additions now.

    There should be quite a bit already included, thanks to the beta, we will be sure to get an update out with any last-minute additions as soon as we are able to do so.

    Happy Inscribing,

    Nikk

    I really love this add-on. But is there a light version of this add-on?
  • #1638
    Dommens,

    Keep in mind that, because of the modular nature of Auctioneer, only the active modules are in-use at a given time, that is compared to Auctioneer Classic where, once logged in, the entirety would be loaded into memory.

    The amount of data displayed in the tooltip and elsewhere has been drastically reduced from the full amount of debugging information that was displayed in the Beta. All of the information is also fully configurable.

    As for the actual package, the next version uploaded on these external sites will not include the deprecated Auctioneer Classic- so the size will decrease for everyone. The interim "Full Suite" we have been providing will go the way of the dodo; to be replaced by the "Auctioneer Suite".

    If you are interested in only the bare basics, we have always offered a stripped-down package, and more, on our primary download site - http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl .

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk

    I have a problem with seeing the quantity of an item if it goes to 3 digits. numbers like 111 can be seen easily, but 200 only shows me the '2..'

    Could you add a little bit of spacing to that if possible, or is there an option to fix that?
  • #1636
    Hi Rinin,

    Need a bit more information, is this on the AH, in the tooltip, somewhere else? As you can imagine, there are just a few locations with counts shown. =)

    A screen shot would be helpful if this is somewhere difficult to describe.

    Thank you,

    Nikk

    im thinking of installing this addon but i have one question. does it slow down world of warcraft alot?
  • #1634
    Hi there J2k,

    The first time you mouse-over an item which Auctioneer, or one of the Suite Addons, has data, there could be a pause depending upon your machine.

    After the initial load, you should not notice much, if any, of a performance drop. If you have an aged machine, and you do notice a hit, you can always create a "bank alternate" and only enable the Auctioneer Suite on that character.

    Happy Sales,

    Nikk

    Auctioneeros,

    Just a quick note to remind everyone to take a few moments to perform your data synchronization from Auctioneer Classic to Auctioneer Advanced.

    Since most folks reading this use the version we upload here at Curse, you are in luck and do not have to download any new software. Full directions are included in the Auctioneer Advanced FAQ, Q. 17. The FAQ is on our main site at http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/AucAdvanced/FAQ .

    As per the warnings we have been providing for about six months now, Auctioneer Classic will not be ported to World of Warcraft 3.x and WotLK. No one, on or off of the team, has volunteered to fix the outstanding issues, nor resolve the 3.x+ issues.

    That said, look forward to more enhancements, additions, and, yes, even some further simplification as we move forward.

    'Bid'ding you Adieu,

    Nikk

    Congrats on the 5.0.0 Full release! All seems to be working well, though I did have to re-enable a couple of tool-tip display options (were all prefs reset?). Hope things are working well for WotLK. I don't think I could do without Auctioneer!
  • #1631
    KernelG,

    Thank you, this has been a Herculean effort, to say the least.

    Yes, one of the changes was a shift in the defaults to more beginner-friendly defaults.

    The beta included all of the statistics and such in the tooltip, to allow for easier debugging. With the release, it should be much simpler for the new user, especially those transitioning from Auctioneer Classic to Auctioneer Advanced- and usable right out of the box.

    We are surely hard at work to have a working package for WoW 3.x and then WotLK.

    Happy sales,

    Nikk

    nice addon. i rated it 5 stars and this is my favorite addon. i greatly appreciate this ^_^
  • #1629
    NinjaMunky83,

    We truly appreciate the feedback and comments- without them, it is difficult to judge whether we are "on track" or not.

    As of now, we are in the process of readying for 3.0 and then WotLK, shortly thereafter. We are working to implement yet more features, as requested by our users, and to, hopefully, make the transition easier for those moving to Advanced from Classic - and our brand new users, too.

    "Bid"ing you Adieu,

    Nikk

    Hello Nikk,
    See this this link please:
    http://mediabeta.curse.com/Curse.Components.CurseImageFileViewer/CommunityServer/Components/UserFiles/00/00/01/88/30/Picture 3.png-600x450.jpg

    That's what I'm talking about.
    I would like to get rid of Informant, Auctioneer messages.

    Kind regards.
  • #1628
    Wasabe,

    Sorry for the delay in responding to you- took a bit to find the answer, which is good and bad.

    Here is the deal- the Auctioneer and Informant "loaded" messages cannot be disabled, not even by editing the files.

    But! If you get the "StopTheSpam" AddOn, apparently that can suppress those messages for you. See http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info4077-StopTheSpam.html for more on that AddOn.

    Hope this at least points you in the right direction,

    Nikk
  • #1624
    Nikk,
    Auctually I mean when you first long on. There is all kinds of messages and I know you can scroll up to view the Guild Message of the day however it's annoying. I was wondering if there is a fix or a work around or if that's the way it's always going to be?

    Kind regards.
