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 .

    Mystery User Person,

    We at the Norganna Family of Addons do everything possible to ensure that you do not encounter any in-game issues, this includes ensuring that our uploads contain no malicious code.

    The folks here at Curse, as seen in this thread, take this issue seriously as well.

    The officially posted versions of Auctioneer, here on Curse, at our main site, AuctioneerAddOn.Com, and WoWInterface have never had any issues what so ever. We would be the first to complain if there were, since the development team actively uses the same code available to everyone else! =)

    Sorry to hear you had difficulty with your account, but know that it did not originate from any of the three officially sanctioned locations listed above.

    To help ensure that you are not downloading anything malicious:
    - Always ensure that you have a fully patched virus scanner and trojan scanner running at all times
    - Ensure that your scanning tools are able to scan within compressed/zip files, since most WoW Addons are distributed as zips.
    - Reject any WoW Addon that is of the .bat or .exe type.
    Unless the author of the addons is known to you and can clearly indicate why those files are needed, they are most likely key loggers or worse.

    Please let us know if you have any questions,

    Nikk and the rest of the team at the Norganna Family of Addons

    To the user who reported that this addon hacked his account,

    It's not possible for this lua project to "hack" anything. It's completely safe and I just now doublechecked for you. We appreciate that you report things, but check the amount of people downloading this addon, there would be numerous of reports if it was hacking anyone. Not to mention, we here at Curse scan all files manually and ensure the safety of our users.

    I'm sorry to say that you got your account hacked by something else. It was certainly not anything from Curse.com

    Cheers,

    John Milburn

    Neikos,

    In order to create new JIRA tickets, help desk type requests, you need to log in with your user name/password from the Norganna forums.

    For those of you wondering, our main forums are located at http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com , specifically http://Forums.Norganna.Org .

    For most errors, you can also feel free to start a new thread there- you should find most users friendly and helpful and the various staff members to be much of the same.

    Best of luck,

    Nikk

    I found what I think might be a bug. I'm having a hard time trying to post it. I have a screen shot which says it all. What do I do? I tried to sign up with the Jira hosted tracker, but was instructed to contact one of the admins.

    PsychoDriveBy,

    From an earlier reply to a post here on Curse:

    "All addons are platform independent and will work on the Mac, Windows, and even emulated Windows on Linux.

    Simply select one of the releases in the list above, download it to your desktop, unzip using either the built-in compression tool or get Stuff-it Expander.

    Then simply move the unzipped folders, I believe there are 16 in the Full release, to the ..\WorldofWarcraft\Interface\AddOns folder.

    You should then log in and look for a new button called AddOns, shown in the lower left of the Character selection screen, click that and ensure that all of the items listed have Gold Check marks in the check boxes. Also add a checkmark to the "Load Out of Date Addons" checkbox.

    Then log in and visit the AH... from there the instructions above apply and you can also gain insight and understanding from our main site, http://AuctioneerAddOn.com ."

    Enjoy,

    Nikk

    does Auctioneer not work with Mac OSx?

  • #1347

    Jase17,

    Auctioneer works fine under Vista, same as the other addons.

    Nikk

  • #1345

    so i take it, it doesnt work on vista then?

  • #1339

    Jase17,

    No Addon will function if you try to install it while the main WoW client is running.

    To install, follow the instructions at our primary site, http://wiki.norganna.org/installing/

    The Addon works on Windows, Mac OSX, and emulated Windows on any of the Linux distributions. The only thing that is different is the install path, but once you find the WorldofWarcraft directory, they are identical.

    Best of luck,

    Nikk

  • #1337

    Remote,

    The scans are shared between users of the same server and faction, so if you have a dwarf and human on Cenarion Circle, then you only have to scan on one or the other. If you have a tauren on Cenarion Circle, then you will have to scan for them, too.

    =)

    HI

    Just installed Auctioneer a couple of days ago and I'm most admit that I'm very impress. But I do have one question.

    I'm using two of my caracters for the AH. Both are on the aliance side on the same server. Do I need to scann the AH with each caracter or just one is enough ?

    Thanks

  • #1338

    Scozzi,

    Read the install guide, and follow the directions exactly as given there.

    If you find the Screen Shot along the left border, the Install Guide tab is just to the right of that picture. Description | Changes | Install Guide. You can find our primary installation guide over at the main site, via http://wiki.norganna.org/installing .

    In general, would recommend only downloading, unzipping, and installing a single addon at a time to ensure that you are not running into problems when trying to install multiple addons at once.

    For what it's worth, numerous people run the addons you list without error, so your issue is likely incurred during the installation.

    Thank you,

    Nikk

  • #1336

    so I downloaded auctioner, atlas, titan panel, and quest helper. Im using a iBook G4 and I put all of them in the addon folder but the only one that worked was quest helper. the rest didnt show up in the addon tab, any help?

  • #1343

    Kin2dMonkeys,

    We work continually to find ways to streamline the scanning process, but unfortunately, sometimes our benevolent Blizzard does some things that we recommend against- go figure. Then again, they have their motivation and we have ours.

    Anyway, patch 2.4.2 introduced some major throttling in an attempt to actually speed up scanning overall for all users. The unintended consequence is likely what you are dealing with, painfully slow scan times that are unpredictable, to say the very least.

    Other than playing smartly, there is not a whole lot any end user can do... while scanning, and general playing, if you want the best response, we highly recommend:
    - Save the web surfing or checking email for later, or use a second machine.
    - Ensure that virus scans are not actively running, but are scheduled to run when you are not using your machine.
    - That backups are not actively running and are, again, scheduled to run when you are not using your machine.
    - That you defragment the drive housing the game client and data relatively often.
    -- By doing so, you keep all of the files the game "needs" in as few pieces as possible. Just using a machine will lead to fragmentation, so defragmenting can often increase overall performance- some times a great deal.
    -- Remembering to close all programs and use the "shutdown" command rather than just jabbing the power switch allows the system time to properly close files rather than leaving temp files and the like scattered across your drive.
    - All non-essential processes are halted
    -- To see what processes are running- and to effectively "deal" with those that are, try "Process Explorer" from http://SysInternals.Com/ .
    -- Sysinternals is renowned for their amazing MS Windows utilities. They received so much attention that MS purchased the company and keeps most of the people as a separate group so that they continue to produce awesome products. The best part is, now the utilities are free.
    --Macs have many of the same utilities, like Windows, some are included- most of the better ones are from third parties, though. ;-)
    - The main thing is to "kill" any processes that are not needed. For instance, Adobe Reader just loves to run in the background and hog resources and many more.
    --Do not kill anything you are not sure of, you could cause unresponsiveness or the need for a reboot if you get overzealous.

    As usual, we have some upcoming changes, that should be in the next version if testing continues to go well, that will at least get the scan times back to what they were, if not a bit faster than pre-2.4.2.

    Hope this makes sense and gets you on your way to faster, less annoying scans!

    Keep an eye here and our main site, http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/ , for more on the upcoming version and all that fun stuff.

    =)
