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

Glyph of Bladestorm by xxxxx is listed at 30g, but that is above the maximum price threshold of 60g, posted it at 30g instead.
I saw that error all the time when i crashed the glyph market on my server for a month. Posted all glyphs under 10g to drive out some of the new scribes thinking they found a gold mine.

The listed price is actually 68g.

I am suspecting the undercutting of myself might be a similar issue. But i am posting so many glyphs that i really cant be bothered to check all messages

A fantastic addon, this cut down my weekly posting time by lots of hours!

Is there anything I am missing?
It only looks at what you have posted at the lowest price if you have something that isn't it will cancel so you can re-post, doesn't matter if you have the lowest price or not. If you have a cap of 2 and 2 items posted at 5g & 6g QA will want to cancel the 6g and post at 5g because you do not have 2 at the cap (2 items at the lowest price).

I think this was mainly done so you don't always have to cancel before posting you can keep posting as long as you have stock in your bags and you are not the lowest price. This way on hot moving items just keep a stack and post every 10 min. you will undercut anyone and put up the cap limit each time

/qa addgroup GROUP_NAME [ITEM_LINKS]

You can only shift click 2-3 items in at a time.

Its all command line at the moment from the looks of it. It would be nice if the Groups showed up in the summary section with the other general groups.

Auctionator

For all my general needs I find Auctionator to be a great mod, but for listing/canceling auctions I think your mod is absolutely unbelievable (GOOD WORK!). But it seems I can't post auctions using it while Auctionator is loaded. QA will break a stack, and list the first item and then sit at 0/xx progress forever.. Any idea what could be causing this? is it something I need to hack in auctionator?

Thanks

One incompatibility I have found is that Baudauctions messes up the results of the Summary as it changes the results pages and continues searching for a product with several result pages.

The other probems mentioend below I have even with the completely unchanged Blizzard interface. I wonder if anybody has similar issues? Maybe that can be solved by increasing the value of some timers, though I am not sure where I should change what (even if the code is well commented).

Any hints are welcome, and I will post back here if I find more on myself.

Cheers,

Blum

Hello,

awesome addon, congratulations,

i have a small problem though, i was overeager to ctrl-click away the gem-groups i thought i would not need and now i cannot get them back.

I tried making other groups also but none shows in the Summarize window.
Alternatively, how would i reset/delete reinstall the whole addon and its settings.

ty for any hint

30% of auctions left

Hi! I am since a couple of weeks back enjoying QA. I am selling lots of glyphs, but always had the problem that about 30% of my glyphs are not posted and left in my inventory. I checked, and they are not under the reserve price and they are not stacked over the limit either (not that that should still matter). As you fixed the not posting issue, I assume my problem was different. Do you know of any conflicts with other addons maybe or do you have other ideas what the reason could be?

Also, the post it button greys out and says 0/o even though I have lots of glyphs left - i then have to reload the UI.

That being said, even with the bugs it is the best addon to use to manage the undercutters! Thanks!

alexut: Thanks for the offer, but I'm going to recode QA when I do a GUI to make it less hackish.

Also, the bug with all auctions not being posted will be fixed next push, here's what the problem was:

If you had Glyph of Cleansing, post cap 4, you had 7 of them stacked as 2, 2, 2, 1, it would find that last 1 as a valid stack, say you only need to split 3 times, then the split code would do the same check and so you'd end up with the displayed number and the actual split numbers differing. The fix basically means it'll always post 4 not 3 in that scenario.

Never mind, i just signed up and filed it under bugs. Also reported the fix for the bug i had.

You could maybe put the github link on curse too..

Also, i'd like to help you with GUI conf, but dont have a training in LUA coding. I am however coding in perl alot and know XML...could you point me to a guide or so ?
