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

Ping is 100ms and it also happens at night with ping at 60.
I will try switching a bag tomorrow.

Vidboy: Oh thought I responded oops, yes you can just increase the timings from 30/60 to something like 300/500 if it's a problem.

tqphan & rapsta: Do either of you have enough space you can just toss in a regular bag so it's 3 Inscription bags/1 Regular/1 Backpack? I can't see a reason it wouldn't work comparing tqphan and Naniad's configurations, especially if other people are posting the same volume of glyphs.

What about ping, do you have a 200-300 ms or higher ping?

Very strange as I post over 200 different glyphs a day in quantities anywhere from 1 to 6 (my cap) so over 600 auctions I have on the go and haven't seen a problem like this since 10+ updates ago.

Shadowed did you see my PM about the super timing?

Yep, good idea. I'll use the summary to refill my inventory from now on.

Also, I just notice a pattern (kind of). QA would stop about half way through the posting. Let's say it's supposed to post 200 glyphs. It would stop around 100 +/- a few. Then the post button becomes inactive (sometimes). If the button is inactive, I use /script QA.postButton:Enable(), it would continue posting but it stops again at around 50 glyphs +/- a few. And it continues to stop at around half way until there are only 2-3 glyphs left to post at the end.

If I find out anything else, I'll post more. Also, I have disabled all other addons except QA, and using r1130

There isn't, I can't see too much reason for it. You would probably be better off using the /qa summary feature + scanning Glyphs, as that will show you both how much you have on the AH, and how much are in your inventory (If any) per glyph sorted by class.

I don't notice a pattern. Sometimes it would stop on a stack that I have 15, sometimes it stops on a stack that I have 2. It seems random to me. I'll test more this weekend and see if I can see a pattern.

On another note, is there an option to make QA not post when you're low on certain supply? Say I only have 1 Glyph of Raise Dead and I don't want QA to post that last one, because that 1-stack is my reminder to refill on the particular glyph.


I agree, this addon is pretty OP. I pretty much dominate the glyph market on my server heheh

Mmmm, I'll take a look into it, what you're saying is fallback doesn't work with posting Glyphs in single stacks, or just posting one glyph period?

Thanks for the comments!

I meant the fallback price, sorry for the confusion.

The problem seems to be gone when I set to post 2 glyphs at one time. Somehow posting 1 glyph doesn't work, QA kept stopping after posting 1 glyph, but when I switching to 2 glyph, it start to post all my 120 glyphs.

Just a quick feedback about how great this mod is. You have no idea how much time I'm saving using this mod. Before I have to check the price of 120 glyphs and growing, now I just sit back and enjoy. The cancelling alone save me tons of mouse clicking already. thank you so much for such a great mod.

(Also try Auctionator, doesn't like it as much as QA, which is faster, IMO)

nampal: You mean you set the fallback price, or threshold price?

tqphan: I see no reason it shouldn't be working, what do the items look when it fails, do you notice that maybe the stack only has 3 items left each time, or is it random? That kind of thing

I set the pushback price to 27g. There is no glyph that I'm selling at the moment, but then QA automatically post it for only 16g, was there anything wrong?

It is normal, it's more complicated to do split/post/split/post than it is to split them all and post them all per item, the only time it's really going to matter is if you have extremely small amount of inventory available while posting a lot of Glyphs (Which is both rare, and you're unlikely to post say 20 Glyphs in single auctions anyway) or someone is being stupid and trying to post 100 Illusion Dusts in single auctions, in which case I hate them and they can use another auction mod.

I have noticed it splits a stack into 3 single stacks before it post. Is that normal? From my experience with auction addons, they only split once and post, even when mass posting.

Both. It will usually split into the backpack but have seen it split into the glyph bags if needed. I'll be sending the file soon.
