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

Also, for those who are comfortable with code (even if its from other languages), this addon is extremely well written and easy to modify.

So, for example, for those who like setting their bid price in a fixed way, there are only 3 places in the code where you need to trivially change it to your own method. Just scan for the places where "bidpercent" is used and where a bid variable is set, e.g.:

bid = buyout * QuickAuctionsDB.bidpercent

Hope that helps!

Superb addon :)

Hi. This addon is the reason I created a Wow Interface account - it's that good

Couple of feature requests already posted on the issue tracker, but just want to see other people's responses:

1) /qa cancel <item/group/type>

I imagine most people do a quick scan of at least all their primary markets before they start fiddling with their own auctions just to check there are no serious price or volume anomalies. Since people are manually "scanning" anyway, it would be helpful if it were possible to speed up the automated scanning by being able to cancel markets or categories/groups yourself - e.g. using above command.

2) /qa toggle <item/group>

I believe that it is already possible to suspend management of either everything or just the builtin types. It would be great if we could suspend a specific item/market or group because sometimes issues will occur which /qa would handle sub-optimally and we would prefer to handle it manually, but only temporarily suspending /qa's management for just those items or groups.

Thanks so much for this great very high quality addon! And don't worry about those asking for trivial things like GUI's! If they cannot handle a very well thought out and simple command line interface, they have no place managing markets, in my opinion!

Is there a way to avoid repeatedly scanning the same items?

I'll cancel auctions, scans ~150 items.
I'll post items from bags, it'll scan ~150 times and then post the auctions.
I switch bags, post again, and it scans everything yet again before posting.

If all I'm dealing with is glyphs, is there a way to scan all glyphs, then cancel and post without having it individually look it up every time the addon needs data on a glyph?

This would save me ~10 minutes each time I manage my inventory.

Awesome addon. Thanks

I've been using Quick Auctions, but I've found two problems with it. First, there's no way to set th bid amounts to be equal to the auction price. I can set it at %90, but if I set it at 100 it says "bid percent set to %0" and it often throws up an error.

the other problem is that if an auction has been udnercut, quickauctions *always* will cancel it.

Even if it has bids.

If someone's bid on an item at a given price, and someone else later undercuts me, I dont' want to cancel that acution and then list it for cheaper!

How do I make it not cancel auctions that have bids?

Quick Auction for the german client?

Hi,
There has already been a post by a french user that he somehow succeeded to localize QA for the french client.
As I don't know anything about lua-code I didn't really get what he was doing there.

I would like to get QA up and running on my german client (out of the box it's doing nothing when I click on either button).

Can someone tell me how to do this or link me to ressources where I can learn to do this myself?

Would be great,
Tilman

Hey i cant seem to figure out what to write to undercut lowest bid with 5s.


Example.
Auction 1: 35bid 45g buyout
Auction 2: 40bid 41g buyout


I would like my Auction to be like this.

34g95s bid 40g95s buyout.

This is what i am writing atm as default.
/qa fallback 47g glyphs
/qa threshold 20g glyphs
/qa cap 2 glyphs
/qa undercut 5s glyphs

Also how do i make so i repost 2 auction if timer says 2hour? Since atm it just skip the repost if i am lowest on the glyph and its 2hours left on my current auction.

Say i already got 2 auctions of "Glyph of example", but someone undercut me. Will i still post 2 more "Glyph of example" if someone have undercut me? Either way i dont wanna cancel auctions, even if ppl undercut me. I just wanna post more.

Ther's a bug with enchanting right now. When you open up the "Materials Required" in the enchanting trade skill panel, the list is empty even if you have many enchant scrolls queued.

I think the cause of this may be that you compare the list of items produced by the trade skills with the list of items produced, and since the result of the enchanting trade skill is not the actual scroll, but a spell, the comparison fails and nothing is added to the material list.

This is fragment of code that could be responsible:
-- Build our display list
for id, itemid in pairs(itemList) do
if( tradeList[itemid] and QuickAuctionsDB.craftQueue[itemid] ) then
table.insert(rowDisplay, id)
end
end

My issue seems to be related to smartundercut being enabled.

if I disable it with:

/qa smartundercut

It undercuts properly.

However, removing an item from the list still doesn't work

Interesting issue

I tried to setup QA to manage my Infinite Dust auctions. Here's what i did:

/qa additem [Infinite Dust link] 5 (as i prefer to sell in stacks of 5)
/qa threshold 3g50s [Infinite Dust link]
/qa undercut 5s [Infinite Dust link]
/qa fallback 5g [Infinite Dust link]

When I go to post auctions, it will post 2 sets of auctions - 5 dust per stack. However, it posts them at 3g each (15g total for a stack of 5). I verified by /qa list threshold that it is indeed showing 3.5g each...but it still posts at 3g/ea

I went to remove the Inf Dust from the managed items by:

/qa removeitem [Infinite Dust link]

And QA says that it's removed form the list.

however, if I do a /qa list items it still shows.

any ideas?

Lowest price on the AH for dust at the time of this posting is 3.75g each).
