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 .

Please, do not post errors here; instead, kindly visit , 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, . We have gone to great lengths to ensure that the most common issues have been addressed

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 .

Happy Auctioneering!!

Bugfix changes from 5.21b Release:
* Fixed problem with undercut on Post tab
* Updates to Enchantrix yields
* Additional Scanner throttle tweaks, to try to mitigate the issues with disconnects during Fast Scans
* Tweaks to garbage collection to try to mitigate memory allocation crash issues
* Preparatory clean-up for the move to a single AH model

* Next and Prev buttons not showing up properly when using skins such as ElvUI - needs to be fixed in your skinning addons. Until these skinning addons are corrected, you can either disable CompactUI, or disable skinning the AH in your skinning addon

* Some attempts to fix the disconnection issues some users see when using a Fast Scan
** New Scanner setting - "Throttle Scanning stage during fast scans" - try this and see if it helps.
** When you enable this setting, you should probably change a few other settings first:
** Set FPS back to around 25 (Throttle effectively quadruples the FPS setting)
** Set Time-to-Live to 5 or less
** Set Unresolved Auctions Tolerance up to 10 or more
** (Slowing down Scanning too much can result in unresolvable auctions - these two settings mitigate that a bit, at the expense of permitting a tiny number of 'errors' to be ignored)
** As usual, if you're having issues, try using a less populated AH, or scanning at off-hours, and see if that helps with your issue.

    Appreciate your pointing out the disparity.

    The latest update was not via the "usual means" and was while Curse was experiencing heavy loads, so although we thought the correct revision was selected, it was not.

    As we have both the Full and Classic versions uploaded, would also suggest that folks manually select the version they prefer when installing or updating. The default has been the Full version, so that hopefully people will begin getting accustomed to Auctioneer Advanced, and the included feature set.

    Thank you,


  • #1160

    Please update the current version to .2995 - the curse updater keeps pulling down .2988.


  • #1169

    *See reply to the next comment.*

  • #1161

    Recently my auctioneer wouldn't display the value of quest rewards and i can't manage to make it work properly again. Can anyone help me?

    Also, is there a way to only install the modules that are required ONLY to display the item's value when sold to a NPC? Because i actually don't need all the other features such as the AH modules and all.

    Thank you in advance for any answer.

  • #1168

    Greetings Hex,

    Any time you remove an AddOn, upon the next start of the game, you will be asked if you want to remove the associated configuration files. If you are sure you never will need your setting choices again, then select "Delete". If you think you may reinstall at some point and wish to retain your settings, select "Keep".

    There is no real harm in keeping the configuration files, they are not loaded and, depending on the AddOn, are usually quite small.

    As to your other issue, not sure about what is missing. While Informant is loaded, then you should receive the line of text showing that you have 1/3, 2.7, et cetera. Perhaps you inadvertently deactivated the setting.

    For Informant's settings simply visit .

    Note that you have to have the quest, if you are to see the X/X type display. Whether an item is used in a quest, cooking, et cetera can be displayed no matter what.

    There is a big effort underway as this is being written to update all of the Informant data- look for an update there soon.

    Hope this helps,


  • #1162

    Forgive my below post. I just found out about the "Informant" package of Auctioneer. It does help to only have the informations i want to be displayed.

    Though i am still facing the problem of reward items value not being displayed in the quest sheet. It doesn't help me to pick the most valuable one. Can anyone tell me what's wrong? Also, it told me that "Auctioneer" was missing and asked me if i wanted to keep or delete it's loading preference. Shall i clic delete?

    Hi there Dan,

    There are a partial set of install instructions here, found at the top, under the "Install Guide" tab or for a complete set, including all the files you need to remove prior to installing, visit our main site, specifically http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Auctioneer/Installing/ .

    While over there, be sure to visit the Wiki and Message boards for usage information, hints, tricks, et cetera.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    I have just installed 'Auctioneer 5' but don't know where to put files to get it working in game?

  • #1166

    Greetings Auctioneeros,

    Your periodic Norganna Family of AddOns update.

    The long term plan continues- adding more features and options to Auctioneer Advanced while performing maintenance upon "blocker" type bugs that arise in Auctioneer Classic. As most know, the objective is to keep supporting Auctioneer Classic until something happens which breaks the functionality beyond the more simple issues- as with what happened to the 3.x and 4.x product lines. Therefore, we highly encourage everyone to at least become familiar with the differences between the two.

    We have received tons of feedback and are endeavoring to include the requests and address the concerns- please be sure to visit http://Forums.Norganna.Org/ to ensure that your voices are heard.

    A more comprehensive User guide is currently under development for Auctioneer Advanced and, after some herculean efforts by our team members, especially RockSlice, the SearchUI will be included in one of the next few releases! So keep an eye out, more is on the way- soon. (The usual definition of soon, too.) ;-)

    We are also happy to report that Gatherer was ready for the 2.4 patch. An error that was not caught via our PTR testing was shot down by Esamynn- our in-house Gatherer Guru with the direct help of our friend .

    A new member has also joined our Gatherer team and is working diligently on adding the ability to track those pesky Engineering clouds in Outland- a draft has been completed and refinement is underway.

    We following folks have recently joined the team- GrimNotepad, as an associate developer, Drab to our web development group, Hirsute to the development team, and Jairith to the development team.

    We are *always* on the search for talent and everyone is more than welcome to join us. We need:
    - End user support
    - Quality Assurance Engineers
    - Testers
    - Developers of all types - Lua, XML, HTML, Python, ad infinitum, and all skill levels.

    We are a very congenial, laid back group of geeks, nerds, and even some normal folks- please consider joining our multinational, 24 hour a day, 7 day a week, open source effort. For more information, see .

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk and the Norganna Family of AddOns Team

    Hello Marcus,

    If you see any sort of warning, that means that the install is not successful.

    Download a fresh copy of whichever version of Auctioneer you prefer from either here or our main site http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl/ .

    There are a partial set of install instructions here, found at the top, under the "Install Guide" tab or for a complete set, including all the files you need to remove prior to installing, visit our main site, specifically http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Auctioneer/Installing/ .

    Once all of that is complete, ensure that the "Load Out of Date" checkbox is selected on the main AddOns screen, accessed via the AddOns button on the character selection screen.

    At this point, all should be mighty fine, launch World of Warcraft as usual.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    hi, when i download it, it installs fine, but it says dependency missing, and it wont work, what do i do?

  • #1173


    Auctioneer works with many tooltip AddOns but not all. There are hundreds of AddOns around and we cannot ensure compatibility with them all, as you can imagine we would spend all of our resources' time trying to figure out what the other AddOns are doing that is making them non-compatible.

    That said, feel free to have the AddOn's author contact us directly and we will be happy to work with them. -> then select chat from the top menu bar.

    Until such time as something is worked out, you have the choice of using one or the other- or picking another AddOn that does functions as you wish.


    Edit: The current version has some changes the current keeper of TBag helped us to work out, those may well help with the interplay of some other AddOns, too. Please let us know if the current download improves the functioning for you. Thank You, Nikk

  • #1172

    Auctioneer wont work with Tiptac......

  • #1175


    All you need to do is follow the instructions laid out in the response to Marcus.


  • #1174
