Auctioneer Suite
Version: 5.18.5433 Suite
by: MentalPower, dinesh, Esamynn, Nechckn, Norganna

The Auctioneer Suite provides you with the tools and data necessary to make those difficult auctioning decisions with ease.

From purchasing to posting, the Auctioneer Suite provides time-tested tools to allow you more time to actually play your characters or play the market.

As you will soon discover, it is much more than a simple "Auctioning AddOn", the Auctioneer Suite also shows in-depth information for all game items, such as those used in quests or recipes, enchanting, milling, prospecting and more.

Numerous other AddOns will also use the Auctioneer statistics you gather via scanning. This is especially true for many of the popular crafting AddOns, such as Little Sparky's Workshop.

Looking for Lightweight and Fast?

Try the "Auctioneer" download from our primary site, rather than the "Auctioneer Suite" we upload to Curse and WoWInterface. All of our downloads are accessible from our primary site at http://auctioneeraddon.com/dl . This version offers a small footprint, with only the basic "Post" frame and tooltip information to assist in your purchasing decisions.

When updating this time:

Be sure to remove all old files- follow the instructions at http://wiki.norganna.org/Installing .

Please, do not post errors here; instead, kindly visit http://forums.norganna.org/ , our Support Forum, and be sure to search before posting- many questions and errors reported are duplicates.

For the fastest service, various questions are addressed in the Auctioneer FAQ, http://wiki.norganna.orgAuctioneer/FAQ . We have gone to great lengths to ensure that the most common issues have been addressed.

Questions, comments, concerns, alphas/betas (when available), bug reports, the occasional bit of praise?

Basic Auctioneer Suite Details

The Auctioneer Suite contains Auctioneer, all of its modules, BeanCounter, Enchantrix and Enchantrix Barker, and Informant to help provide a comprehensive view of item data, whether at the Auction House or out questing. Some highlights are:

Appraiser

An intuitive auction posting frame.
• Remembers your preferences for bid/buyout prices, stack sizes, and number of listings to post per item.
• Allows queuing of auctions, so you can instruct it to list hundreds of auctions and alt-tab while it does so for you
• Allows you to specify the value price of your choice and remembers your selection
• Displays competing listings, the age of the data, and allows you to sort these listings and refresh them easily.
• Provides a scrollable list of all auctionable items in your bags; allowing you to quickly post all of your goods.
• Provides a "Match Competition" setting which will automatically undercut your competition when posting auctions, within your parameters
• Provides the ability to change to a "Simple" view; a bit like the Auctioneer Classic posting interface.
• Allows you to change column width by Right-Clicking and dragging to the column width of your choice.
• Allows you to post multiple auctions with the single click of the Batch Post button.
• Alt+Left-Click == Refresh Pricing of all Batch Postable Items.
• Shift+Left-Click==Trial Posting, prints the pricing to your chat window, but does not post any items, allowing you to verify settings.
• Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Left-Click==Post all items that have the "Allow Batch Posting" checkbox selected (located at the top of the item information pane).
CompactUI

An alternative to the standard auction browsing interface.
• Displays more auctions per page
• Displays more data per auction
• Allows you to change column width by Right-Clicking in the column heading and dragging left or right to resize the column to your liking
• Provides a percentage comparison with the Market Value Statistic of your choice
• Allows auctions to be color coded by price level
• Allows multiple sorting options not available on the standard interface
Statistic Modules

There are a variety of fully customizable statistic modules included with Auctioneer that can provide a variety of pricing information- all based upon your needs.
• "Market Price" - a custom designed formula that merges the various statistics into a usable price. This is the default setting and is highly recommended.
• Auc-Stat-Histogram - Returns Median and IQR values, based upon a Histogram of pricing data. Essentially, a median value, based upon all prices ever seen; no data is ever discarded.
• Auc-Stat-iLevel - Statistics modules that groups all items of same rarity, type, and iLevel together (e.g. all green weapons of iLevel 180). Useful for pricing random "of the ..." items.
• Auc-Stat-Purchased - Statistics module that tries to infer purchase prices based on items disappearing before they could have expired. (Requires more frequent scanning of the AH)
• Auc-Stat-Sales – Uses data from BeanCounter to display historical statistics on actual purchase and sale prices. Note that this statistic is installed along with BeanCounter, and cannot be installed separately.
• Auc-Stat-Simple - Statistics module that performs simple averaging of data, converted daily to exponential moving averages of the orders 3, 7 and 14.
• Auc-Stat-StdDev - Statistics module that keeps the last 100 price points for an item and performs a standard deviation on the data list to exclude outliers from the sample space and provide a normalized mean.
• Auc-Stat-WOWEcon - Statistics module that uses the WOWEcon AddOn's data (if separately installed) to provide the price to other Auctioneer modules.
• Any other stat module that you or others wish to create can be easily added to auctioneer functionality!
SearchUI

An Auctioneer Utility that prompts you when it sees auctions that fit your criteria for buying and, or, bidding.
• Uses Searchers that you can customize for various desired deals such as:
• Resale - Prompts you for deals based on discount from the market value, AH fee, and expected relistings
• Disenchant - Prompts you for deals based on disenchanting armor and weapons
• Prospecting - Prompts you for jewelcrafting deals from prospecting ores
• Vendor - Prompts you for auctions listed below vendor sell price
• The "RealTimeSearch" will continually reload the first and last page of the AH, within reason, as per your configuration, to find the newest bargains and auctions that are just about to come to an end. Both great times to find some amazing deals.
• Piggybacks on your AH scans if allowed to do so
BeanCounter

• Creates journal entries when you bid, buy, post, or retrieve AH mail.
• Provides a searchable interface that can display all activity or only certain items
• Allows you to change column width by Left-Click and dragging the column to the size of your liking
Enchantrix

Enchantrix displays values for disenchanting, milling, and prospecting; plus suggested values for selling enchants. Enchantrix can also automate disenchanting, milling and prospecting. Some baseline pricing is built in, but Enchantrix also uses values from Auctioneer to provide up-to-date prices for your server/faction. Enchantrix also includes controls to let you customize the pricing by enchant material (fixed prices and weighting).

Informant

Informant displays additional information about items in their tooltips: buy price; sell price; item level; what quests, classes or professions use the item; the value of the item produced by a recipe; etc. Informant can also tell you what vendors sell a given item.

What can Auctioneer do to help me?

Once a user moves to the Auction House (AH) and beyond just buying and selling from/to vendors, the whole game changes. No longer is the user dealing with the static prices of the vendor to support their character's income. We are now dealing with the fluid and hectic nature of a dog-eat-dog market economy.
In such an economy, which is in a constant state of flux, it can be difficult to select the correct pricing points for your item at the AH. Sometimes, the prices and value of your items can be wildly different compared to the vendor price due to many factors, the value of items that can be made from your item, the use of a particular item in a quest, the suitability of a particular weapon or armor to specific classes, and the disenchantability of an item to enchanters.
Primarily, the driving factor of the price fluctuations, as in the real world is supply versus demand. When supply is high, but demand is low, competition drives the prices down, and conversely then supply is low, but demand is high, the market is driven into a sellers market.
The Auctioneer Suite can help you alleviate this lack of market knowledge over time by watching the market evolve.
When you go to the Auction House (AH) for the first time after installing Auctioneer, you will see a row of 3 buttons along the top of the main "Browse" frame, click the "play" button to begin your first scan of the entire AH. Auctioneer will begin recording statistics for every item it finds, including the bid, buyout, and more.
Once the market analysis has completed, you will notice additional information about the items in the tooltips when you mouse over them.

What happens when you go to sell items via the Auction House?

If Auctioneer has enough data, when you try to put an auction up for sale, it will attempt to provide you with intelligent pricing points based upon the market data it has accumulated through scanning.
When you select an item in the full or simple "Appraiser" frame, Auctioneer will suggest a minimum price, a buyout price and display relevant data about it's decision making process in the right, receipt window, including how it has arrived at its prices.
When you place an item in the SimpleAuction, "Post" frame, Auctioneer will suggest a minimum bid, a buyout price, and display relevant data, including the deposit and more.

What are the available pricing models, or statistics, again?

There are numerous pricing models from which to choose, they are discussed in the FAQ, located at http://Wiki.Norganna.Org/Auctioneer/FAQ.

Conclusion

We hope this helps people to understand the Auctioneer Suite a bit better.

Happy Auctioneering!!

Auctioneeros,

We are pleased to release Auctioneer and Auctioneer Suite 5.18, the PassionatePhascogale (we could not find any Australian animals that started with an O), which is fully compatible with World of Warcraft 5.4.

We've seen about a half dozen changes to the project since we released 5.17. Most of these changes have centered around making Auctioneer work on 5.4. The full changelog can be seen by visiting http://fisheye.norganna.org/changelog/Auctioneer .

Without the work of our volunteers that have put in countless hours coding, testing, documenting and generally hanging out on the forums/channel, this release would not have been possible.

* All of the very latest http://Localizer.Norganna.Org language string updates have been imported and will be displayed in your localized client.
** We are continually in need of help localizing the ongoing changes to Auctioneer, BeanCounter, Enchantrix, Informant, and the other AddOns listed at http://Localizer.Norganna.Org - especially ptBR and deDE.
** "Registering" takes only moments and you can be on your way... it is quite simple. Even if you only have the time/inclination to help with a few translations, that will be better than what we have now for some of the locales.
** Before starting, kindly take a look at http://forums.norganna.org/index.php?p=/discussion/9517/ for some basic thoughts.

Happy Auctioneering,

MentalPower and the rest of the family at Norganna’s AddOns

 01-06-10, 02:17 PM pär A Murloc Raider   Forum posts: 6 File comments: 81 Uploads: 0 After reading your forums a fair amount I still haven't figured out a way to reliable track what items sell for - i.e. the ups and downs of the REAL market price - as opposed to what arbitrary numbers are generated by people who deliberately and continuously put up very overpriced auctions and then cancel them. I'm sure this isn't an issue on large-population servers that don't encourage overpriced auctions - but on small-pop servers where you don't take a snapshot every day - it's a bit of an issue when Auctioneer's so-called "Market Price" is about 400% of what an item is regularly selling for. Got a link where a fix to this issue is discussed?

ChaosInc,

Well, that is the reason for the "highlight" section, since some of the changes only a few would really care about - or maybe no one.

They may not all be good, but they are surely sexy!

Actually, had planned to get the next release out, but there is a bit of testing to go, so this was just an update to the "About" section for the time being. Should have another out fairly soon, though.

Nonameform,

You need to activate the Auc-Util-FixAH module.

The "error" is caused by Blizzard mis-naming their own function, that module corrects the issue until they either change it or make it "official".

Once enabled, you may then see some issue being reported from somewhere via the script notifier.

From what is there, all that is happening is that the scandata is being loaded, which happens whenever you first mouse-over an item, since Auctioneer is then supplying the information you are requesting. Anyway, see if there are any notifications after you enable that module.

Without a statistic module loaded, Auctioneer may have issues - but that should not impede moving items in your bag(s). In fact, that is likely what is trying to be communicated to you when you see that.

If there is another Lua error, simply paste in the full error, including the AddOn list - you would be amazed at the amount of times that provides the reason why an issue is occurring.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

Copying my post from Combuctor comments page.

Additional info to my original post:

 Originally posted by nonameform I have a question though: for some reason I can't move items in my bags while in combat and I'm wondering if it has something to do with Combuctor. I've rolled an alt recently who doesn't use Combuctor and I have no problem moving stuff around my bags. I see no error on screen, just can't move stuff.
Since this problem got somewhat worse, I had to try disabling addons and finally found a conflict.

 Error occured in: Global Count: 1 Message: [string "..\FrameXML\BasicControls.xml:
As soon as I enable Auc-Auctioneer (core) module, I start getting this error and I can't move stuff in bags in combat. Not sure if I have to report this to Auctioneer authors, so waiting for your reply first. All addons are updated to the latest version.

Re: Set Focus Error

Velvyt,

Try disabling Swatter and ensure that "Show Lua Errors" has a gold check out in the main Blizzard "Interface" menu, when you hit "Escape" in-game.

Once done, reload, then try setting the focus and see if the error still shows, but with a different error.

Let us know.

Happy Sales,

Happy you found that you can use those, and BeanCounter, as standalone AddOns.

The same applies to Auctioneer, itself, in fact. For those who often think that the Suite is overly resource intensive, the Auctioneer-only download provides a lightweight alternative.

Each portion of the Suite is intended to work well together, but we do keep an eye out for those who run bare bones or old systems or do not need/want one portion or another.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

A new Auctioneer Beta was just posted, since you are using a beta already, go ahead and download/install the new one, then see if the error persists.
