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.

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 .

    Hi there Celeglad,

    The reasons for moving from the "Classic" style have been listed here and on the main forums numerous times over that past eight to nine months.

    We even have offered to assist anyone who was knowledgeable enough to take over Auctioneer Classic with not a singe inquiry- none.

    The size of the addon and the fact that people would loose their scan data every few months was more than enough reason to change- but we kept it on for over six months longer in an effort to appease everyone.

    What it comes down to is not enough hours in a day to maintain all of the various facets of a project that consists of 3 of the most popular AddOns- Auctioneer, Gatherer, and Enchantrix.

    Now, as to the rest of your question, there are numerous changes and numerous things that you can do to make the interface more simple, such as clicking the "Simple" button at the top of the Appraiser Frame- that will provide much of the Auctioneer Classic look for the posting frame.

    The FAQ, linked above, at http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/AucAdvanced provides a treasure trove of information. If, after reading that information, you still have questions, let us know.

    Happy Sales,

  • #1649
    Awesome addon first of all.

    I just thought I'd say that it would be really great if you could add a really brief summary of the most recent changeset when you post it here. I know you have a link posted, but it is really great when CurseClient updates a half dozen addons to be able to just skim through the curse pages to see the major changes, rather than having to sign up for and login at various SVN pages, and read through all of the inconsequential changesets to see if there is anything major.

  • #1654

    Normally there are individual change logs, but between the previous version and this, new Suite there have been hundreds of changes.

    That's why we point folks to the wiki for information about what is included in this set.

    Look for the change log in subsequent releases,

  • #1656

    Actually, this specific file was an emergency upload meant to keep folks from throwing errors initially, so there was no change log on 3604. The reasoning remains for the differences between the 4.x - 5.x product lines.

    Look for more informative change logs as we have the time to put them together.

    Thank You,

  • #1646
    Hi Nechckn,

    You are awesome. I just thought I'd mention that. :)
  • #1648
    Pet the rooster, come on.... pet it!


  • #1647

    For you, and others in the EU and Asia, simply disable the Curse Client for one day and use the "Auctioneer 5.0.0 Release" file linked, above- if you want to use Auctioneer today.

    You need to follow the instructions at http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Installing to fully clear out your AddOns folder, then simply unzip the file contents to the ..\AddOns directory.

    Sorry for any issues, but there is no way to select a certain file for use with a localization. That is something that you should seriously take up with the Curse folks- since this likely will not be the last patch that will occur in this manner.

    Happy Auctioneering,

  • #1645
    One problem though is that Curse updater is updating 1 day before the patch is released in the EU so I can't use Auctioneer until after tomorrow.
  • #1642
    as well the same problem as below
  • #1641
    I have the same "problem" here. It instantly disables upon login and i get the message that his build is made for client 3.0 and above. However I can´t find any 3.0 Curse client to download?. And when trying to download an 2.0 suitable version of still installs the latest version.

    Tried deleting the existing Auctioneer ofc...and been sure to unmark the "Autoupdate" for Auctioneer..but still the same result.

    Would be very greatful for all trix, hints you could give to make it work :D

    Thx ! /WalkingProud
  • #1643
    It means you need version 3 of the WoW client not the Curse client. WoW is getting updated today to version 3.0.2 to get ready for WotLK next month. Auctioneer should run fine after the update is finished.
  • #1644
    Ahh...thanks alot for the explenation ! Appreciate it =)
  • #1639
    This add-on is great, using it on all my alt, special like that Jewelcrafting finaly shows up in Information?, hope fast Inscription will be add to that field.
  • #1640

    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,

  • #1637
    I really love this add-on. But is there a light version of this add-on?
