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 .

    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
    C:/WorldofWarcraft/Interface/Addons

    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,

    Nikk

    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,

    Nikk

    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.

    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.

  • #1075

    Hi ya Blackout05,

    My suggestion to JPRocks will work for much of the info, much of what you see in the tooltips are generated by Informant- so just do a /Informant help at the prompt and you will be able to pick and choose what information is displayed.

    As for the actual amounts and showing many of those- that is controlled in the options. Activating or deactivating the various "stat" modules in the configuration options will affect what is displayed as well. Adjustments there will also affect the percentages, etc.

    You can also enable the "embed in game tooltip" option for some of the items and that will trim down the amount of information displayed, but is less configurable.

    Not sure about which percent you are talking about- there are quite a few. If you mean the percent in the main Auctions window all the way to the right- that is telling you that the item is being offered at XX percent of the usual price, based on your settings in the stat module. When you change the stats, sometimes it's necessary to close out of the AH then reopen to see the changes reflected there in. Either that or are you saying that when you want to undercut by XX percent, that when you place the item up for bid that the suggested price is incorrect? Let me know.

    Also- you can get live help via IRC over at our main site, just visit AuctioneerAddOn.Com and select "Chat" from the top menu. Please note that we are all volunteers and often work on other things while monitoring the channel, so just pop in there, post your question, and then hang out, play more of the game, et cetera. If you do not have an answer in an hour, then it would be all right to repost your question... most of the time you will have an answer in minutes, but that is dependent upon availability. =)

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Sorry to bother ive looked thru the wiki and this my first time using this addon. I have gone thru every single setting an its a great looking GUI. Is it possible to remove / disable that bottom tooltip when you have an item that is Not seen in scan , or has no tooltip currently? Also can I remove any of the tooltip lines , mainly I just want to see Buyout , Buyout Median , Suggested sell price.

    Also I have undercutting turned to zero percent and it still shows 5 perc in the tooltip any ideas how to remove it or get it to show correctly? When I update to 1 thru 5 perc it always shows 5 perc.

  • #1093

    NecroLily,

    Simply click Configure while on the Appraiser tab at the Auction House or the Auctioneer Button on the SlideBar, which should be just under the minimap.

    Also note that our documentation site is not quite complete but contains tons of information regarding Auctioneer and the rest of the Norganna Family of AddOns via Norganna.Org, then AuctioneerAddOn.Com.

    Nikk

    Edit: spelling

  • #1089

    kinda dense when it comes to this kinda thing. but where is the configuration options? how do i bring that up? i norm did the /auctioneer for options, but in that its not working. :(

  • #1088

    Hola NecroLily,

    There is a checkbox in the configuration options - that will allow you to either see or hide such requests from your party/guildmates.

    Like the idea of having a set person in a guild who is responsible for collecting various information, that surely makes things easier for everyone. Is that in addition to, or on the same level, as crafters and such?

    Happy "Data Mining",

    Nikk

  • #1076

    Didn't have time to read through all the posts, but was curious about something. I just DL the newest Auctioneer and im having a problem with spam tells. Im the info gatherer of the guild so i get alot of ?item for prices. The last auctioneer version i had i hit /auctioneer askprice whispers off and i wouldn't get all the outgoing whispers. Now i do with that option off. Can you please help me before my guildmates drive me up the wall?

  • #1080

    Hi there Thiril,

    That is telling you that the item is XX percent of the price you expect-
    i.e. linen cloth is up for 1s and the usual price is 10s the percent will show 10%

    That can all be configured via the options, but the default is as above.

    Happy Auctioneering,

    Nikk

  • #1077

    what does the pct tell me on the search auctions tab?

  • #1082

    Hiya Thargoth,

    Sounds like someone went /ignore crazy! Anyway... normally you can do a /btm ignore <item> and /btm unignore <item>

    Since you have so much... recommend you start your BTM data anew by using \\run BtmScanData["profile.<profilename>"]["itemconfig.list"] = {}

    That is the super, turbo method and only recommended in the extreme case, such as what you describe. That will zap your "snatch" list too, but just re-enter your items, if you have any, after doing so.

    Best of Bottom Scanning to you,

    Nikk

    *Edit: The BBS software is adding the URL for the .list - not I. So, please no complaints about trying to take over your systems or anything. =)
