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 .

    Hohner,

    That has been fixed and will be in the next release. There was an oversight when the author was coding the "only" checkbox so it was not appearing in the correct locale when "SwitchUI"ing.

    Appreciate your letting us know, though... some times there are bugs that sneak by us!

    Nikk

  • #1309

    When I click the appraiser tab and switch UI to display only one item (not the list) I get a check box with the word "Only" next to it in the middle of the results. This only occurs after you drop your item into the box.
    This is with AuctioneerAdvancedSuite-5.0.PRE.3117

    Hello Kwazimoto,

    Please be sure to review the other posts so that you may save yourself the trouble of posting when you do not need to do so.

    According to the other responses to this question here in the Auctioneer comments:

    "A search of "chat redirect" on our http://Forums.Norganna.Org finds "AucAdvanced Options -> Core Options -> General -> Uncheck the box that states "Enable the display of the post scan summary"."

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

    How can I disable the Auction scan results being posted into my Chat Log?
    I don't need to see how many Items were scanned or how long the scan took, etc.

  • #1317

    Punchl,

    First try reinstalling with a known-good package, http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl/ .

    If the error persists, disable any addon that moves or changes your tooltips to see if the issue remains, if it clears up, then the issue is with that addon. Enhanced tooltip usually only runs into issues if you are running some type of tooltip addon that does not do things in the "standard manner".

    If that does not address the issue, try disabling all non-Auctioneer addons and see if the issue remains or disappears. A complete list of the sub-addons used by Auctioneer can be found on our main download page http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl .

    If none of that works to your satisfaction, you can post the error text, including the AddOn list, in a message on our support forum, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/4/ .

    Thank you,

    Nikk

    Take the 30 seconds and create an account on our forums, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/ then create a new ticket under the AuctioneerAdvanced project http://JIRA.Norganna.Org/ .

    We always appreciate feedback and input.

    Thank you,

    please please please add a feature that hides patterns that make BoP items i cant use... im tired of hitting the usable check box for leatherworking patterns and getting a list of patterns for BoP mail... i can't wear higher lvl than leather and i almost dont wanna search patterns anymore b/c im tired of having to check each one to see if the crafted item is BoP i cant use.

  • #1322

    Halgy,

    AuctioneerClassic used slash commands nearly exclusively and the complaints were non-stop, so AuctioneerAdvanced uses/will use the gui configuration set for all of these sorts of items.

    For Auctioneer Advanced, from page 3 of the comments here on the Addon message board:

    "Please head over to the main site, specifically http://forums.norganna.org/discussion/6832/?Focus=38099#Comment_38099/ .

    There is an effort underway to make the AA tooltip information a bit easier to configure but the changes are not finished, nor in the final product as of yet. Stay tuned!"

    Best of luck,

    Nikk

  • #1319

    I love this addon...runs on a lot less memory than WoWecon and provides better info.

    Anyway, can you please add something so it is easier to change exactly what is displayed in the tooltip? Or at least provide a comprehensive listing of slash commands? I don't really need all the info that auctioneer provides; I only need how much it runs for in the AH, what it DE's into, and how much that DE will cost. Everything else is extra...

  • #1323

    Xixao3d,

    Kindly post your issue, along with clarifying exactly what you mean by crashing, i.e. windows blue screen, system error, game time out, along with any errors you see at the main site, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/4/ .

    Thank you,

    Nikk

  • #1320

    Something about the latest version's tooltips crashes my client whenever I rollover an item. I have disabled all addons, and everything works great. As soon as Auctioneer loads, my client bombs. The only thing new that I've noticed is the "Suggestion: Vendor this item", etc., messages.

  • #1325

    Sobakus,

    The rating button is located in the upper left of the page, just below the giant "W". =)

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

  • #1324

    Very nice addon, thnx very much for it.

    But since u ask me to "click on that rating button"... maybe I'm stupid, but i just don't see it o.O Some time ago it was there but now it has disappeared O.o

  • #1327

    LoneWolf,

    Some users, and Blizzard, had issues, pre-2.0, with the "automatic buying" feature of BottomFeeder and after discussions with all involved, we voluntarily discontinued it.

    Auctioneer Advanced and Classic both currently ship with BottomScanner that does many of the same things, but it requires manual input, a mouse click, in order to purchase or bid on items.

    We recommend monitoring the items BottomScanner selects as possible deals, since anomolies could conceivably occur, but feedback has been extremely positive all around.

    We are quite happy with the resultant program and encourage all users to give BottomScanner a try. The functions are intuitively laid out and support is available via our main forums, http://Forums.Norganna.Org/ .

    Thank you,

    Nikk
