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!!

Nikk and the rest of the Team at Norganna's AddOns

Auctioneer users,

    Still doesn't work... :S

    Ohashey,

    As noted just a few messages down (again)...

    The instructions list the files to remove if you are upgrading- obviously, if you have never installed Auctioneer previously, then there will be no Auctioneer files that need to be removed. =)

    Simply download the current "Full Suite" to your desktop and Unzip the AddOn- there are sixteen folders that you will then place in C:\ProgramFiles\WorldofWarcraft\Interface\AddOns folder. (For a Mac, the path is slightly different, but the portion after ProgramFiles will be identical. You get the idea.)

    After installation, start WoW and then check the main Addon manager, accessed via a button in the lower left of the Character Selection screen. Ensure that all of the Auctioneer-related items have a check in the checkbox, including the box to "Load Out of date Addons".
    **If you do not see any Auctioneer-related items in the AddOn Manager, then you did not unzip and place them correctly- go back and try again.

    Since you are a new user, be sure to visit the main site and review the message boards and the wiki for tons of valuable information- http://WWW.AuctioneerAddOn.Com/ .

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

    Read my post further down. You just have to separate the files in Auctioneer and place them in add ons as individual files.

  • #1224

    Does Auctioneer work on Macs? If so can someone tell me how because it aint working for me.

    Yes I am downloading, extracting (Stuffit) and putting it Addons Folder.

  • #1228

    Dark0153,

    We are moving to Auctioneer Advanced as the primary, the "Full Suite" is only an interim step.

    Once to "Release" quality, Auctioneer Advanced will be the main offering, with Auctioneer Classic available as an option to those who are willing to do some of their own trouble shooting, work with the slash commands, et cetera.

    The options accessed via the configuration gui work correctly when using the Appraiser frame, which will be the only "posting" frame, as indicated in my earlier response. As the Appraiser frame is the primary means for posting auctions in Auctioneer Advanced, and since modifying the options affects that frame and the tooltip elements created by Auctioneer Advanced, they are most assuredly not useless. The default Blizzard posting frame will still exist but, in Advanced, we no longer modify it in any way, such as inputting the pricing, adding gui elements, et cetera.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Enjoy,

    Nikk

    - Auctioneer 5.0.0.PRE.3024 FULL
    - "Post Auctions"/"Auctions" tabs
    - Configure / Match Modules / Undercut: x%

    Match-Beancount is disabled

    i managed to change the % with /auctioneer pct-underlow

    at least u should specify somewhere in the "configure" options that they are kinda useless or add options for both classic and adv

  • #1236

    Thank you!! =)

    Great mod.

  • #1233

    Carl,

    That is under the AAdv configuration, Utilities, Auction Magic.

    Simply uncheck the "show deposit costs" checkbox.

    Nikk

  • #1230

    Anyone know how to get rid of the new tooltip that's appearing? It says "no or unknown deposit cost".

  • #1234

    Ahtmozphear,

    All of the versions are listed right above the screenshots- that said, we have not done anything different from the previous version to affect the font size. The laptop likely had only classic or some such thing prior to the latest update. If you prefer that, then, again, simply pick an older version, that could well have bugs, from the list above.

    You can change the font size for the Auction House window by checking the FAQ on the main site, http://wiki.norganna.org/Auctioneer_Advanced/FAQ/ , second question from the end.

    The choice is up to you and your girlfriend,

    Nikk

  • #1231

    Can I make the fonts of the auctions I search bigger? They are so small with this new version. I have the older one at home and it's fine but here on my girlfriends laptop I have the newest version and they look a lot different and are very small. I do not care for this at all. If you can't make them bigger can I get a link of an older version that doesn't make the font size 5.3 or something?

  • #1235

    Greetings Pete,

    There was likely an issue with the update on your system, as the Appraiser Frame is still included.

    Do not use the auto-updater, rather download a fresh copy of the latest from http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl/ and then follow the instructions at the main site, http://wiki.norganna.org/Auctioneer/Installing/ , to reinstall.

    Should you be missing the Frame after that, head over and post any errors or symptoms on our main assistance board, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/4/ .

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

  • #1232

    What happened to the Appraiser tab I am missing it after the last download.

  • #1241

    DeedleWee,

    As per the posts at the main site, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/4/ , you open the options screen, go to core options and uncheck the box next to Show Post Summary Scan. Options can be found via the Configure button on the top right of the Appraiser Frame or via the wee Auctioneer button on the SlideBar, usually located just below the Minimap. Specifically -> Core Options - General - UnCheck "Show End of Scan Summary"

    You can also redirect all of the Auctioneer Advanced output to any chat window, General->Preferred Output Window-> pick one.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

    Hello,
    I got a thing which have been bugging for a while. Almost eveytime I scan on the AH with the help of auctioneer I get big result message (which I think it is) in the chat. That message is very irritating when I'm trying to have a conversation at the same time as looking at AH, which I often intend to do. Is there a way to turn it off, because I can't find a way to manage through the program. I know it must be there somewhere but it would be a great if you could help me out. :)
