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

An associated AddOn that tracks your bid, postings, and mail to help you determine your overall and item-specific profitability.
  • 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.

Visit our main site for indepth information and help - http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com or visit http://FishEye.Norganna.Org to view the current changelog.

Happy Auctioneering!!

Nikk and the rest of the Team at Norganna's AddOns.

Re: Re: need a hand please...

Wow.... Thanks, that helped out. Not sure why I overlooked those before, doing them now seems so simple.

Thanks!

Hiya Raider4evr,

For the first item, you need to choose which "Searcher" to use. If you only want a single item, by name, use the "Parameter Searcher".

As for the second, BeanCounter records your data based upon the mail you receive from the AH. It then records the sales, failures, et cetera. Other than the Blizzard Armory, there is no way to "see" any past activity that was not recorded by the AddOn. e.g. You should begin to see sales results from the day you installed, but not before.

Hope that helps, let us know if there is anything else.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

Hi there,

I love Auctioneer. I really believe that it is the only reason two of my characters have fast flying mounts. It takes away the hassle of picking arbitrary prices for auctions.

The latest version I have downloaded is acting up. The game action stutters when hovering over items in my inventory. Maybe it's the tooltip modification. The 3D animations happening briefly pause whenever hovering from one item to the next.

Is this one of the reasons you guys are switching to that new tooltip library? Speaking of which, when can we expect a release containing all the updates for Wrath & the new tooltip code?

Thank you.

Thanks for the help, Nechckn. As an additional query, is there some way for me to limit the size of the database (e.g. keep only the most recent X price points for any given item)?

Undercut How?

I just upgraded from what I think was a beta version to the newest release version, and Undercut no longer seems to be undercutting.

For example, someone posts a billion stacks of wool at 7.25s and Appraiser has these auctions "colored yellow" from the default install. Even with the Undercut module enabled, the "Enable Price Matching" checkbox checked, Appraiser then sets the buyout price for my stacks to 7.32s, so my auctions aren't actually undercutting. This happens even if I have the "Max under market price (markdown)" option set to -100%

I've had to resort setting fixed prices, which is really killing the usefulness of scanning & batch posting.

Edit:
Okay, if I disable Bean Counter, Undercut then matches properly, so I assume Bean Counter is taking priority with pricing, which is probably great at times, but in this case, when people aren't likely to buy said billion stacks of wool, it'll result in me just losing the auction deposit and having to repost it all again.

Is there some really elegant way to have the two both enabled and coexist? or is Bean Count just gonna override Undercut 100% of the time?

Ah ok - I thought it was pulling the information in real time.
I've downloaded the wowhead client and I'm off killing everything that moves in the interests of helping with the data collection ~~~~

Zorklat,

The statistics automatically maintain data for about a month, the exception being histogram that should keep data until the file fills and resets.

That helps keep the recommendations current.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

With the changes, that should take quite some time

Re: Undercut How?

Sigea,

Just ensure that in the "General" options settings, you have the matcher order set to Beancount and then Undercut.

That way, your prior sales will have a chance to adjust the price a bit, followed by undercutting/matching competition.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

Kaoro,

Yes, that is one of the reasons; the biggest being less system resources.

As to the other data, there is a Preview up on our main site, to check it out, simply go to http://AuctioneerAddOn.Com/dl , select Preview, and then Auctioneer Suite.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

disconnect during get-all scan

Just happened again. I stopped the scan when new posts stopped coming in to chat. Auctioneer window shows 8min 25s elapsed scan time, while chat shows that the scan was stopped after 9min 38s.

I JUST deleted ALL my saved data, and grabbed the latest release version using the WoWMatrix client (dated 10-25-08). Any idea why I'd disconnect like that?

Re: disconnect during get-all scan

Zorklat,

There is a reason why we do not have GetAll as a button in the interface... Blizzard has yet to correct many issues that can cause a whole range of "bad stuff".

Does the regular scan function?

As to WoWMatrix, we do *not* recommend using that tool since they often do not install the correct version, install in the incorrect locations, and that many people who use it notice all sorts of issues.

Installing AddOns and maintaining them is really not that hard, especially when sites like WoWInterface and Curse will email you or PM you when items are updated, et cetera.

Let us know of your results when trying the normal scan,

Nikk

Auctioner/Enchantrix

Does the suite include the functions of Enchantrix? A previous low level enchanter of mine had Enchantrix and I loved it, and my now lvl 296 enchanter would benefit greatly from it. My concern is knowing what the item most likely will DE in to.

Re: Auctioner/Enchantrix

Nymie,

Enchantrix is included in the Auctioneer Suite.

Just ensure that it has a gold checkmark in the AddOns control panel, accessed by clicking the Addons button in the lower left of the Character Selection Screen, and that you enter /Enx enable always once per character for which you would like to see its information.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

Got the latest Wotlk preview from the Auctioneer site. How come the Auctioneer tooltip tells me it has "seen" certain BoP quest rewards in the AH? For instance the Fire Extinguisher reward from the Zul'Drak quest has been seen 6 times...

I thought my auctioneer data was corrupted so I deleted it and did a fresh scan. Afterwards, it has seen these BoP items in the AH.

Kaoro,

That is due to the iLevel statistic. It is just showing the "value" compared to other items for the same slot and iLevel.

Obviously, for BOP items, it can be ignored, other than giving you an idea of the item's overall value.

Happy Sales,

Nikk

Hello. Lovely addon! The money has already started flowing in...


But; The tooltip telling how many times the item has been seen etc. is bugging if the item is in a bag in my lower part of the screen, using bagnon, however raising the bag window up will solve this, so that I can see both normal and auctioneer tooltip, it is still irritating though! Having to move your bags up to the upper part of your screen if you need an item in there.
I think it could be Bagnon or TipTac interferring, but I don't really know.
