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 .

Happy Auctioneering!!

    I'm one of those people who needs text to be larger than is offered by the standard auctioneer advanced browse screen. I enlarged it following the instructions in the FAQ by scaling to 1.3. Now, the tool tip frames overlap when mousing over some of the items in the browse window. After searching the database of bugs, this issue is reported as fixed, and it appears to work well when the browse window is not scaled, however it is still broken after scaling the browse window.

    lnknprkn,

    That is likely caused by old information corrupting the new install or another addon interfering with the display.

    Here's what you can do:
    - Follow these directions explicitly http://wiki.norganna.org/Auctioneer/Installing
    - Once you have done all of that, try launching WoW and see if you can find some sort of data in the AH.
    - If not- then go into AddOns, via the button in the lower left of the Character Select screen, and disable any addon that is not listed as part of Auctioneer on that "Installing" guide (above).
    - If you still have issues after that, visit us via the message board at the main site, via AuctioneerAddOn.Com.

    Hope you are soon back scanning away,

    Nikk

    i recently deleted my old version of auctioneer to try to update it to this one. i deleted it from the addons folder and reinstalled it. when i click a category on the left, and a subcategory, it doesnt show the listings. it just shows "..." and thats all

    please help

  • #1095

    TheSchrade54,

    There are no setting to disable tooltip information an a per item basis. There are numerous settings for tooltips, including what information to include and what to exclude.

    As stated in the previous posts, there are settings via /enchantrix help to in/exclude whole types of information and you can also pick and choose which evaluators to show in Auctioneer Advanced via the Configure button on the upper right of the Appraiser Frame or by pressing the Auctioneer button on the SlideBar, usually located just beneath the minimap.

    If this is something that you cannot live without, please feel feel free to post over on our main forums at http://forums.norganna.org/4/ .

    Thank you,

    Nikk

    Is there a setting so that when i scroll over certain items it wont give me the breakdown on them?

  • #1096

    Greetings Auctioneeros-

    Please know that we have tested the suites numbered 2887, and a few later versions, on the latest incarnation of patch 2.4 on the test realm and there are no issues or errors. We will endeavor to ensure the suite is tested and set should there be any further modifications before 2.4 is released.

    To avoid any issues, you may want to be sure that you have the "Load Out of Date" AddOns check box selected in the main AddOns screen.

    You can access the AddOns control from the Addons button in the lower left corner of the Character Selection screen.

    Enjoy The SunWell content and Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

    CTimK,

    That is "normal" for Enchantrix, just informative. If you are using either of the new versions here then you are well above the 3.X line of development.

    As for scanning, would recommend about once per play session after you have a decent amount of data. On a brand new, never-used-Auctioneer-before type install, we usually recommend folks scan two times per day for at least a month to build up a decent database of prices. After that initial period, once per session should be enough to keep the pricing up to date.

    The pricing Auctioneer suggests should be correct based upon your scanned data, your server, market, and your tolerance for risk. Most of that is adjustable via settings, AuctioneerAddOn.Com for indepth discussions, et cetera, but if you are finding that Auctioneer is pricing things close to where you normally would, you should be able to post without too much worry. We do a lot of development and testing in the hopes that no issues get through that affect pricing and all but you should do a check of said pricing each time you update and periodically, just to be sure that the pricing is staying close to where you would like it to be.

    Happy you are back up and running,

    Nikk

    I updated to classic 2953 and the scan takes longer now. That seems right. :)

    Also I managed to get the msg. about Enchantrix. It says Enchantrix requires Auctioneer version 3.4 or higher some features will be unavailable ect. Should I just ignore this?

    Let me ask you this. I don't really care too much about specifics or anything else when I auction, I just go by the price the auctioneer gives me to sell. Can I always trust auctioneer to give me the proper price to sell is my question.
    And how often should I scan? Once every few days? Thanks!

  • #1108

    CTimK,

    That was going to be our next step, after we ensured that the application was not inducing any portion of your issue- though I'd have suggested just renaming them so that we could have obtained a copy for analysis.

    Regarding scanning, yes, especially under Auctioneer Advanced, you should notice a decent speed increase when scanning.

    Not sure about your Enchantrix message, can you provide the text of the message, please?

    Thank you,

    Nikk

  • #1106

    I deleted the saved variables in the folder or whatever to see what would happen and it worked. Have you guys speeded up the scan? Because when I hit scan it went really fast; just making sure it isn't an error. Also when I first entered WOW a message about Enchantrix poped out saying something like some option won't work unless i upgrade encantrix? I can just ignore that right? I mean I got your latest auctioneer. Replay back asap. Thanks ;)

  • #1103

    CTimK,

    Alright, since there are no errors, let us first go ahead and follow the instructions given to CrazyMehicano. Come on back with the results, please.

    Nikk

  • #1101

    Correct. I hit scan and nothing.

  • #1099

    CTimK,

    So when you click Scan, while at the Auction House, you do not see any sort of messages from Auctioneer saying that it is scanning, has scanned, et cetera?

    Nikk

  • #1097

    I am so confused it seems like for some odd reason now the scan button won't work when I hit it. Please help.

  • #1100

    Greetings CrazyMehicano,

    Since you are having issues, would recommend that you do the following.

    Explicitly follow the directions for installation at the main site, http://wiki.norganna.org/Auctioneer/Installing .
    Be sure to use a fresh, known good download of the AddOn from AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl .

    Let us know your results,

    Nikk
