Quick Auctions 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v3.1
by: Shadowed [More]
Quick Auctions is an auction tool to help speed up auctioning large quantities of items, especially canceling. While primarily Quick Auctions is built for large quantities of items, it can work fine for a few auctions as well. A bit of tweaking is required to get optimal settings, but it is very flexible and smart enough that you can use it for more than just mindlessly undercutting auctions by 1 copper every time. Summary window and craft queues are included so you do not have to memorize every item and quantity you need. Shows total materials required to craft as well as allowing you to click from the craft queue to craft so no searching through everything.

Slash command: /qa (/quickauctions)

Donations
A lot of time went into Quick Auctions, donations are appreciated but not necessary. And it's cheaper than buying gold while not being against the ToS!



Groups
Groups are how you manage what items should be managed by Quick Auctions. You can set auction settings either as a default, or per group giving you flexibility over everything without having to duplicate your settings 50 times. There are no limits to how many items can be grouped, see the configuration in /qa config to set them up.

Mail
Includes a timer in the top left of the mailbox indicating how much time before new mail data becomes available, and if you are not using Postal then QA provides its own auto looting for mail. The auto looter will work with the timer on the mailbox cache so it will loot everything, wait until new mail is available and then keep looting.

Auto mailing can now be done per item or per group to any character you want. For example, you can setup your banker to send uncut gems to your jeweler and you can setup your jeweler to send cut gems to your banker. The auto mailer is intelligent in when it sends mail off, and works best when using QA mail looter. If you are trying to loot herbs from your mailbox while auto mailing them to your scribe, it will send mail off whenever it sees your inventory is full. Basically, if you have 4 open slots it will auto mail/loot with only 4 slots, no more clearing out your bags to loot mail anymore!

General options
  • Smart undercutting - Instead of always using the undercut value, it will round it to the nearest gold piece if possible (10g99s -> 10g, 5g -> 5g - undercut price)
  • Smart cancel - Cancels auctions a bit smarter than usual, will cancel an item if you can re list it at a higher price and won't cancel it if items are below the threshold
  • Cancel with bid - Lets you choose if you want to cancel auctions with bids on them

Item options
  • Auto mail - Automatically mail items directly to your banker that are managed by QA
  • Post cap - How many of an item can be up at any one time (If you are undercut this number is reset)
  • Post time - How long to post an auction
  • Undercut - How much to undercut by
  • Bid percent - How much bid should be set to as a percentage of buyout
  • Threshold - Cap on how low an auction can go, if it'll be posted below the threshold price it won't be posted
  • Per auction - How many items to post per an auction
  • Fallback - If no other auctions are up, how much should it list an item for
  • Fallback cap - How high above the fallback an item can go, helps prevent posting a single Frostweave Cloth at 100g if someone sets it at an extraordinary price
  • Auto fallback - If the market price is below your thresold, QA will automatically post it at the fallback price
  • Maximum price gap - How much of a price difference is allowed between the lowest and second lowest items before QA undercuts the second lowest, this will also cancel your auctions if the price gap gets too high
  • Ignore stacks over - Allows you to ignore any auctions with a stack above X when determining price, useful if you want to post against the market price of 1 Abyss Crystal rather than the market price of posting 20 at once
What changed between 2 and 3?
While the configuration in QA2 was an improvement over the original QA, it still wasn't good enough. QA3 has a rewritten configuration and should be much easier for people to understand and use without having to learn to use QA through trial and error.

Scan speed has been increased quite a bit again and has been tightened up to reduce the chance of conflicts. In previous versions, QA would Query -> Wait 0.50 seconds -> Check Data -> Either parse it or wait 0.50 seconds, this made sure that whenever auctions were scanned all data was available including who posted them. The problem is, most of this data becomes available instantly after your initial 1-3 seconds. In 3 it's been changed: Query -> Check Data -> Wait 0.50 Seconds -> Parse or wait 0.50 seconds. Best case this means you will save 0.50 seconds per query (50 seconds/100 items), and worse case you won't see any speed increase.

Mail has been improved to make life easier for people, both a mail scrapper and a smarter mail sender were added. See the mail section above for more information.

Setting scope was improved, most basic options in QA including group settings have been moved to the global profile while server/faction specific settings can still be changed per profile. Letting you setup different profiles of how QA should handle different groups, without having to duplicate all of your group list over and over.
QA3 isn't done yet, and I have more planned still like summary improvements and easy buying of items.
Shadowed:
- Fix positioning of tradeskill frame
- Fixes for 4.3
- Fix tradeskill button positioning
- Should make canceling work again with hardware events
- Make open all work again, add posting back with necessary hardware event work, some initial work on canceling
- Initial conversions to WoWAce, nothing should actually work yet

I have no idea what Altoholic does, but I don't really have the time right now to look up what it's doing that causes it to break.

If I had to take a guess, open QuickAuctions/modules/summary.lua

Find

if( self.tooltipData ) then
GameTooltip:AddLine(self.tooltipData, 0.90, 0.90, 0.90, 1, true)
GameTooltip:Show()
end

Remove that.

Me: 6g90s
B: 7g

This would be an awesome feature to have especially when someone goes in and lowballs a set.

Lightbulb Feature Request - Uppercut!

hi shadowed,

Let me start by saying what a great addon you have developed.

I'd like to propose that a new feature be added called an Uppercut, where the addon checks that you are maintaining the undercut that you have set compared to the next lowest buyout, so that when certain competitors auctions fall off, ours will be canceled and relist at our undercut if the difference is greater than our undercut between them and us. This would effectively move our auctions up in price while maintaining our position as the lowest.

For example; my undercut is set to 10s. Competitor A is listing at 4g and Competitor B is listing at 7g. So the auctions look like this:

Me: 3g90s
A: 4g
B: 7g

now when A drops out, I'm effectively undercutting B by 3g10s Using a standard cancel cycle wouldn't fix this since I'm already the lowest auction.What's needed is an uppercut to move me up to something like this

Me: 6g90s
B: 7g

Having to go and manually look through a few hundred auctions and cancel/relist as others drop out tends to be extremely time consuming and this would be a great time-saving and gold-increasing feature in an already great addon. I hope you'll consider it.

(feature request) Cancel option?

Hi,

1st up:
I'm sorry this turned into one of my dreaded wall-o-text's.
(i know it's my 1st one on this website, but ppl know me for my posts, usually)

2nd:
I absolutely love the addon, does the work so much faster and simpler then any other similar addon i've tried to get my auctions on the AH and it even adds the awesome option to cancel what's been undercut, if i feel up to the daunting task of taking em all out of my mailbox.

This brings me to the reason of this post;
I've been mainly posting Glyphs and, as most of the scribes out there will know, I usually have around the 1000 auctions active at any time. (except around maintenance ofc.)
Even tho i'm very pleased (and actually a bit surprised) with the speed of this addon's work, doing the scans, posting the items and pulling em all off, I'd be happy to sacrifie some of that speed if the addon would sort the order of canceling the auctions.

To make this a bit more concrete:
It would be awesome if the addon would cancel all auctions of the same exact name right after eachother.
That way the glyphs would stack up nicely with every 50canceled auctions that show up in the mailbox each time, and we don't have to run back and forth between mailbox and auctionhouse because (in my personal case) the 4 32slot glyphbags are full with incomplete stacks.

Offcourse this will probably be a feature that's not for everyone and, (seeing how fast your addon does it's work and i see this as an outstanding feature,) will probably cost some processing speed, so it might be something you'd want to make enable-able (spelling?) through a checkbox in the configuration part of the addon. If you'd be willing to write this feature up offcourse.

I'll check back regularly to soo if you've commented on this, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this request, or feel free to PM me on the site.

Thanks for a great addon, wether you're willing to add this feature or not, i'll keep using it.

Hi Shadowed,

Always with the banker by group function need, but i wanted to talk for something else :

The summary window is very usefull, most of the time it is sufficient, but when we have large craft items (as glyphs...), it is a pain to add numbers for all item to be crafted.

Could you add a simple function that do :
For each craft item :
Look configured threshold for this craft item,
Look how many you have in bags (and bank will be great but this need some big modifications i guess),
Look how many you want in AH at the same time,
Look how many you want by Auction.

With the summary you already have :
Lowest price,
How many you already have in AH.

The button will just put the number to be craft for each craft items, to respect all criterias (if lowest price below threshold, no need to craft as example).

Is this possible ?

Thx for your time

I hope this can be fixed because other than this issue, QA is a great addon.

Greetings. Love your mod, but I've found a pretty big issue, or am missing the option to fix it..

If you're using the Cancel button to cancel all undercut auctions, it won't cancel auctions that have the exact same buyout as yours.

This is a big problem, since someone with QA or some other auction mod can post auctions over the top of yours with the same buyout and a lower bid, and effectively undercut you with no way to pick them out.

Is there a way to cancel ties in the config, or can this be added?

I think the reason for this is I am undercutting my auctions if say I have 5 glyphs posted and then created 10 more and post them. it undercuts the ones I already have instead of posting them at the same price. Is there a fix to this?
