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

Another bug : sometimes, QA3 see i'm undercuted, and i got room to put another auction under competition, so it cancel my auction. But it not repost it, sometimes even if there's no other auction up.
It don't append for all items, only some (and some of them worked perfectly for weeks, with no bugs).
It seem the more i put items in QA3's list, the more i got bugs (i got hundreds of item in the list, now).

Bug

A bug with the canceling auctions, it doesn't seem to cancel items with ' in their name when there is something lower priced. Example of this is "Merlin's Robe" and Bejeweled Wizard's Bracers".

For all the previous bugs i got, maybe i found something : it seem to happen far more often when i got rituals of the new moon in my bag (for sale with QA3).
I suppose it's because under the same name, there's 4 differents items.
I play in FRfr, the item name is "rituels de la nouvelle lune" (i don't know if that can be relevant, but just in case).

Feature request: Incremental post

Is it possible to add an incremental post option?

Basically, instead of scanning the entire bag and retrying every item, just retry those items that haven't been tried since the last full post.

This is especially useful if you are posting a lot of stuff (and many of them do not get posted because of item limit/cost threshold) and have to make multiple trips to the bank/mailbox, and doing a full post everything is extremely slow.


Just need to keep a map of the items posted so far, and don't retry items in the map doing a "post". Any items tried will be put into the map, regardless of whether it was actually posted.

When doing a "full post", clear the map then call "post".
When doing an "incremental post", just call "post".

Great Addon, it is a big helper in getting rid of the crap (and all the other nice things i want to sell^^)
But since i am crafting on several toons (Horde and Alliance) it would be great to wipe the known recipe list.
Now i have to remember each item and know if i can craft it with that toon or not.
A simple button to wipe the list of that type would be perfect.

Request for feature :
Add a way to ignore enchants or gems or whatever on stuff. Because when an item is enchanted or gemmed, it's considered different as the original one. So QA3 don't detect it's the same, and don't undercut.

Running into an odd situation.

QA is putting some items up at appropriate values. However, other items it will tell me are "queued to be posted," but then it doesn't do anything. I have tried deleting groups and recreating them, I've tried messing with the general settings... I can't seem to make it post those auctions, when I have 10+ of that item in my inventory.

Edit - Does anyone know how to get around this issue? I'm debating dropping the addon, because I can't post all of my auctions, anymore.

Hi,

"Maximum" is spelled incorrectly under the auto fallback price section.

Thought you should know. :P

Re: Sales History

I've googled to see if QA3 keeps track of what sold, but it looks like it doesn't. Can anyone recommend an addon that tracks what sold? I disabled 'beancounter' from Auctioneer as it seemed to be hanging my client when I had 200+ items in my mailbox.

edit: I should note that I love QA3 - I now use it for all my auctioning hence the need to track sales.

Also having this queued problem. Reloading my UI used to fix the problem, but it doesn't anymore. Even when there are enough items, and enough space in my inventory (for any split stacks), it just sits there.

While it was a matter of time anyway since I wasn't maintaining QA anyway with Cataclysm:

Blizzard's protected the auction posting APIs with 4.0, meaning any sort of automated posting is broken. Any sort of fix would require pressing a button every single time to post an item, which goes against QA.

To put it simply, QA is broken come 4.0.

Actually, it's each auction set that requires it, so if you are posting 5 of the same item, you don't push a button 5 times, you push it once. And for me, and I think a lot of people out there, QA is less about posting quickly, and more about organization.

Also, the usage of QA along with Item Auditor makes such a potent combination, the idea of having to remove half of that means I'll probably go learn enough LUA off the net to put in the button to post.

And lastly, this is happening on the PTR. Not live. It's not happening on the beta either. Just this specific PTR build. It's also not in the patch notes, and not in the upcoming changes to the API on the macro/ui forum.

Are you going to lift your license to allow someone else to continue that great addon?
Would be a shame to abandon QA

Obviously, it's not live, that's why I said it's coming with Cataclysm. "Post an item" means posting 5 of the same item, or posting one item. It's the same API call.

PTR and beta aren't the same code branch, just because it's not on beta yet doesn't mean it's a bug. The odds of it only being added on the PTR but not make it into the Cataclysm branch are slim to none.

No! T_T Say it isn't so.

The addon is valuable if only for the automailer and mailbox opener! And the summary panel. And the autobuyer from vendors. There is so much more to this addon then just the ability to quickly post auctions.

And I agree with the poster below, I'm not so much interested in getting my auctions up ASAP as I am letting QA figure out what price to set things at and post 'em. Even if I have to repeatedly click a button and tells it to go.
