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

try /qa undercut 1c glyphs

you forgot the c and may have taken it as a default g



Is there a way to add all items into summary even the stuff not listed in the AH like a DB of everything? That way we know if there were no posts on an item and to put some up ASAP, which is hard when you're talking about 370 glyphs looking for what's not posted.

Thanks once again for your hard work Shadowed

I've been considering that, but I don't like the idea of having to store a large database of items to compare when none of it are up. I'll think about it more, but even if I do add it, it'll have to learn the items meaning it won't know to show an item as not listed until it's seen it at least on ce.

1121 worked well tonight with Auctioneer running and thanks for the DB. Had a few lag spikes but worked through them and didn't see any scans missed so far.

Did more test during busy times in Org and was lagging out like crazy, had to turn Auc. off in the end or I'll have to move back to TB

Any chance you can put another number on the summary showing how many of each item is in our inventory?

Vidboy: Was your ping higher in game than normal, or was it just occasional spikes that the ping number in game didn't reflect.

Naniad: Will play with adding something like that, it'll probably be in the format of "(<in inventory>/<left to cap>)" thought, not sure.

Was more like a lockup, frozen screen other than the mouse. I always do one quick search in the AH to make sure Auctioneer is running and not doing anything crazy usually one item in my bag. Then I start the QA scan for undercuts and usually on the 2-3 scan is where the big freeze hapends, it was so bad I got logged off once, them I can see small freezing at almost every scan. In TB I don't have the problem anywhere near as bad but still hapends from time to time. I've gone through Auctioneer and turned off as much stuff as I could that I didn't need/want but for every scan QA does it does it in Auctioneer and can't find a way to turn that off without shutting Auctioneer and reloading the UI.

Using each program individually I have no problems, i still get short freeze with Auctioneer the first scan as it loads scans but I'm use to that with a large DB of items and sales.

I have a good systems with lots of memory and an very fast internet conection with pings always under 100. The only other things I'm still looking at is my AV protections that might be doing something in the background just enough to cause these freezing/lag spikes I get

If you open your auctioneer settings, and click on the general options, about the 4th or 5th item down (Roughly) is the processing priority and accuracy settings. You might want to drop them down and see if this helps. i know the processing priority tells auctioneer to speed up calculations at the expense of frame rate. This is what causes the lag when it scans. The accuracy one tells Auctioneer to use more processing power to insure better accuracy of numbers. This also ups the lag.

Update to my own post below. Its the 7th and 8th option down on the General tab. It's two sliders actually.

The 5th option down is the one that turns on and off the post scan data dump to the chat window.

Thanks vabeachdave, I'll try that when I get home, I care more about the sales side of the stats than the current pricing and such.

May have solved the Auctioneer problem, my Auc-ScanData.lua was 19megs so I renamed it. No freezing or lag at the moment, I'll have to try it in Org. Keep you all posted on my findings.

Two questions:

1. Is there a way to see what settings you have set within the addon? In other words what my cap is set to or what the threshold is for an link or a type of item? A summery page of sorts that shows what you have already set?

2. If I want to turn on using enchanting scrolls is it:

/qa toggle enchant scrolls
/qa toggle enchantscrolls
/qa toggle enchant
/qa toggle enchants
/qa toggle "enchant scrolls"

or what? I've tried about four or five different combinations but have yet to get it to activate. I have no clue at this point what I have actually turned on by mistake (See question 1 above).

1) There isn't, last push (As of 10-20 minutes ago) shows the cap of auctions if you have them up however.

2) See the help text, enchanting scrolls aren't available as a toggle option, I can add them in as one but right now they aren't which is why it doesn't work. For now you would have to manually add each scroll using /qa additem

new bugs in 1123

Would not post 2 glyphs saying they were under the threshold, bought one item out to raise the price up the second had none in the AH. The only way I could get QA to post them at the fallback price was to reloadui. So much for logging =8(

Summary started out ok after I scanned it wouldn't show the list properly would only show a few lines at a time, Do I have to delete my old saved variables since you added new columns?

so, compared to this addon vs Auctionator in terms of performance, witch one is better? Cause in terms of options and functionality, its practically the same of what i can understand.

From a quick look at Auctionator, this is probably better.
