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

Ah, I see. I suppose what you're saying makes sense, but I feel like canceling an auction with a bid on it makes me a bit of an ass. I suppose I can set the bidpercent to 100% so I don't have to worry about it. Hopefully I'm not picking nits, I really like the addon, I guess I just need to change my habits. Thanks!

There isn't an option, the cancel feature isn't meant for people who want to let those win at bid.

It doesn't allow a bid price, it just allows you to set it as a percentage of the buyout. Which is really just to improve your chances on the item list for people who don't use a custom auction browsing, but it's not meant as a way of letting people win through buyout.

Hello! Quick question: It seems to me that auctions with bids on them still get canceled. Is there an option I'm missing or is this the expected behavior? It seems odd to allow a bid price but then ignore bids. I like allowing people to win on bids, if they're willing to wait. Any advice would be appreciated!

That shouldn't be possible, it uses an exact match for names and not a partial, but I'll look into it.

Items with partial matching names confuse QA.

Example:
Glyph of Shadow
Glyph of Shadow Bolt

"Glyph of Shadow" on AH for 20g
"Glyph of Shadow Bolt" up for 10g

When I post a "Glyph of Shadow" it undercuts the "Glyph of Shadow Bolt"

Shadowed, just wanted to let you know I have been using 1128 since the 22nd. It works very well. I even went in and changed the scan time from 1.0 to .5. Do you have plans for a "configuration page" to show the status of what you have items set to as well as thresholds etc?

Thanks again for this awesome addon. I have not found the need to go back to using auctioneer or auctionator.

Next push I'll add a timer into it, if it sees no auctions posted for 10 seconds it'll automatically enable the posting button again.
I just use stacks of 1. The quantity changes though as to how many I post but I always post individually.

The only issue I have and have continued to have throughout all the revisions is it will sometimes stop posting but usually just 1-3 short of the total to be posted. For example if I'm posting 130 auctions, it may stop at 129 or 127 and the post button is inactive. What I have found is if I manually post items directly (After it stops on its own) it advances the counter for each one I post manually and when the counter hits the max number the button un ghosts. Then if I hit the Post button again, it will go and post the items it missed.

Every once in a blue moon I sometimes see a red text message in the middle of the screen (Blizzard text) that says "can't split those" or something along those lines. That's not the exact text. I suspect it may be trying to split the stacks too fast and then going to post them before its split. But that's just a guess.

No i did not touch anything while posting. And even when this error does not show it only posts half of my glyphs.
