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.

    Yes, the longer you scan the more correct your data will be. For all of the common items, a scan or two per day for about a week will give you a really good base of data, with better averages developing over time.

    In order to know which items are overpriced, especially when people purposefully post high, that still requires you to pay attention to the items you buy and sell. Auctioneer is an advanced tool, with built in algorithms to ignore so called "outliers", but numerous posts by scam posters can cause your data to become unreliable. There are many things you can do about that, but the single best is to know your server's economy yourself- if a deal seems to good to be true, it likely is.

    We provide support for including other addons' data, such as WoWecon, into the price computation, so you may elect to install that addon as well. *Note that the functionality is seamless, but could change over time since we do not directly support, nor write any part of WoWecon.

    For more, visit our main site at AuctioneerAddon.Com

    Thank you,

    great addon but i was just wondering, do u have to keep on scanning it or can i download already scanned data. It seems to me that for auctioneer to have the real aerages and prices you will have to scan for a few months twice a day to get the correct pricing information

  • #1063

    Greetings Shootyz,

    The size is constrained since we tag along with the Blizz auction house interface, though we no longer modify the default post frame itself.

    For some ideas on how to "make things a little bigger", (without needing Extenze!) visit our FAQ, fourth item from the bottom, on the main site at

    Happy Auctioneering,


  • #1061

    I just got this mod and it looks great, I only got one question. I was wondering if you can increase the item detail display it's really small and hard to read.

  • #1064

    Hola Marcus,

    That should update automatically.

    Would ask that you first ensure that you are running the most recent version of either Auctioneer Classic or Advanced by downloading a copy from our main site- AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl.

    If after doing so you notice that issue, or any others, that you visit us on either the IRC Channel or make a detailed post with a screen shot showing your issue on our message board. Both are accessible from the main site, AuctioneerAddOn.Com, via the top menu.

    Appreciate the feedback and wish you mucho looto,


  • #1062

    Currently, when posting an auction item, the price and competition might not update itself.

    I managed to make it work by putting the same item into the item window a couple of times and then the price and list of competition comes up! Usually I do this 4 times every time and it works.

    Hi there WhiteB,
    Simply disable Auc-Advanced in the AddOn manager screen to use AuctioneerClassic exclusively.
    Thank you,

  • #1065

    If you have not noticed as of yet, our offerings listed here at Curse.Com have been updated to the most current, stable versions to date. As noted in the "Changes" section, our Default Installation has been changed to use the Auctioneer Full Suite containing Auctioneer Classic and Auctioneer Advanced.

    The Auctioneer Full Suite was set as the default due to the large number of people who have been trying Auctioneer Advanced and then forgetting to update Auctioneer Classic or vice versa. This can cause various errors that otherwise do not exist.

    If, for some reason, you do not want to utilize one version of Auctioneer or the other, please do not panic, simply disable the undesired version via the AddOns Manager. The AddOns Manager is accessed via the "Addons" button located in the lower left corner of the Character Selection Screen, just after signing in and selecting your server.

    If you should happen to encounter any errors, please report them via our main site located at AuctioneerAddOn.Com. As always, prior to reporting any errors, kindly ensure you are running the most recent version available from AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl/. That will be the first thing you are requested to do should you come to us for assistance, so please take the initiative and ensure that your error has not already been resolved.

    Numerous volunteer hours have gone into this set of releases and we hope you find that the most prevalent errors have been completely resolved- and that there have even been enhancements during the process as well, particularly within Auctioneer Advanced. Although many would have marked the product as "Gold" a few revisions ago, we set our standards quite high and have yet to denote either suite as such. Please keep that in mind should your run across an, as of yet undiscovered, error but know that both parts of the Full Suite, Auctioneer Classic and Auctioneer Advanced, are certainly stable and reliable.

    We endeavor to keep Curse and other AddOn Sites as up to date as possible. That said, should you notice some time has elapsed since the most recent update, especially if there is a new Game Version with no corresponding Auctioneer release, please visit our main site, AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl/ , to access the latest and greatest.

    We appreciate your continued Patronage, input, and use of our products. We wish you cartloads of Gold, Silver, and Copper.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Hi there Greg and Krisi-

    MS Windows VISTA makes some changes, though as long as you get the files into the /worldofwarcraft/interface/addons folder, that is the important thing. Vista is what is keeping you from being able to unzip- were I to guess- since you are trying to mess with something in the ProgramFiles directory that is monitored heavily by Vista's User Access Control (UAC).

    What we recommend is actually moving your WoW installation to the root of the drive rather than within "ProgramFiles". WoW makes no changes to the registry and such, so you are able to run the program with no problems. Have tested this on more than once Vista machine with good results.

    Once you make the move, your new interface directory will be

    Vista's UAC does not watch those areas so closely, so you will be able to unzip and use whatever addons you please after the move.

    After that you should have no problems, though you may be requested to authorize action via UAC every now and then. Usually you will get a warning whenever you launch some programs and when moving/deleting files in watched areas. If you are doing so, just click Yes or Authorize.

    Hope this helps and that you, and your wife, are back to Auctioneering soon,


    PS- Would also recommend removing your personal email and telephone contact info- though Curse is a decent community, it is still searchable by bots and the like. =)

    *Edit: This was a response to a post with an abundant amount of PII... other than making me look whackier, glad they decided to remove the PII just wish they would have left the rest. C'est la vie!

  • #1070

    Why are you even using Auctioneer then?
    If you do a little legwork, you maybe able to find an addon or option involving Auctioneer Tooltips. Try disabling that should you find it.
    Or try disabling Informant.

  • #1071

    Hi there JPRocks,

    As Sulhir suggests, there are options to turn on/off all of the information you are seeing. Try /informant help while logged into the character in question, that will show you all the optional information. You may try /informant embed on to see less info, if that is still too much likely /informant off.

    Most people use Auctioneer for the express purpose of obtaining that information, but if you only want suggested prices at the AH, only to see such info on a banking character, or whatever- feel free to do so.

    For a lot more information on each piece of Auctioneer, visit http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/.

    Happy Auctioneering,


  • #1069

    When I open my bags and highlight something, I get this annoying window that shows a bunch of info I don't want to see, can someone please tell me how to remove this window?

  • #1074

    Greetings Ice,

    In the main Auctions window, there is a "play" button in the upper left corner, that is used to initiate a new scan. The other two buttons are used to pause or stop the scan.

    That should get you well on your way.


  • #1072

    i was wonder how do i update the info in the search auctions tab. It says all the info is over 24 hrs old and i can't get new info so i can search auctions.
