WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Get the Auctioneer addon

Auctioneer SQ

First, head to a safe website to download Auctioneer.

I typically download all my addons from Curse Gaming. While I have never found them to be unsafe, I still suggest virus scanning any file you ever download.

WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Scan the Auction House

  • First, click the red button labeled 'scan' and scan the Auction House.

    This usually takes around 10 minutes so kill time by watching TV, playing a console game, talking with friends, or whatever you like to do.

    Before listing any items, it is always smart to scan the Auction House. It will give you up-to-date pricing and information for every item found on the Auction House.

WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Configure Auctioneer - Profile and AH Window settings

  • First, click the red button labeled 'configure' found at the top of the Auction House window.

    While the default settings are pretty good for Auctioneer, I suggest changing some of them. Start by making a new profile. This is good for customizing for different characters or different setups. You can name it anything.

    So, one of the biggest questions I'm asked is, "How do you open the auction house and profession panel at the same time?" Because my resolution is 1920, it just fits but for most you will need to set the protect AH window setting to 'always'. If your windows don't seem to fit right, you can use the settings for window size to adjust it smaller or larger.

WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Configure Auctioneer - Duration & Undercut Auction Options

  • Next, click the 'post' tab found at the bottom of the Auction House window.

    Alright, so first set the default duration for your auctions to 24 hours. If you have a lot of competition with your profession then 12 hours may be better and if you have absolutely no competition, then 48 hours might be good for you.

    Next, check the double-alt click box and this just means you can hold alt and double left click to list an item without filling out any information. I typically use this when I'm in a rush.

    The next you want to set are the undercut options. You can choose a fixed undercut or percentage. I like to set mine to 1 silver 1 copper at a fixed value.

WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Configure Auctioneer - Simple Auction Options

  • Next, set up the 'EasyBuyout' options.

    These are super helpful with saving time when buying or cancelling out mass-quanities of items.

    First, enable EasyBuyout and its key modifier. You can set the key modifier to any of the options listed. I prefer to use 'shift'. The modifier just means you have to hold 'shift', or whichever key you select, while right-clicking and it will instantly buy or cancel the item without confirmation.

    Next, do the same with Easycancel.

    Finally, set the limit you feel comfortable with. This will make sure you don't 'EasyBuyout anything too expensive.

WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Auctioneer Examples

  • Example One: Mass-cancelling Items

    First, click the 'Auction' tab found at the bottom of the Auction House window. Next, locate the item you want to cancel, starting from the bottom, hold 'shift' and right click each item you wish to cancel.

  • Example Two: Mass-listing Items: Small Quantities

    First, click the 'Post' tab found at the bottom of the Auction House window. Next, locate the item you want to list in your bag, hold 'alt' and left click it once. It should automatically put it in the list box. Then, either click (check) the 'undercut competition' box or manually set your own price. Finally, click the red 'create auction' button as many times for how ever many units you wish to list. Here you want to be careful that the stack size is correct in relation to the list price. Make sure you aren't listing the entire stack at the price of one item. If you do this on accident, just cancel the auction from the 'auction' tab as quickly as possible.

  • Example Three: Mass-listing Items: Large Quantities

    First, click the 'Appraisal' tab found at the bottom of the Auction House window. Next, locate the item you want to list in your bag and drag in into the list box. Next, set your stack size you want it to list. Below that you can select how many of units you want to list. Then, set the duration. Next, set the price you want to list the items at. Finally, click the 'post items' button on the bottom right to list everything. It will give a preview of what the items will sell for in total.

WoW Auctioneer Gold Guide: Bean Counter

  • Basically, this comes with Auctioneer and it keeps track of everything you purchase or sell on the Auction.

    To find information on an item, just drag it into the box or type the name of it. This is useful for many different reasons some of which include, checking moving sale prices on a item you sell regularly, seeing how much you spend on a particular mat, checking how much you have sold or purchased overall with your account or a specific character, and many other uses. Personally, I just use it when I bored waiting for a raid summons to finish, a wipe recovery, or a BG queue to pop.

  • There are a lot of options with Auctioneer and Bean Counter you can mess with so have fun.
  • Finally, World of Warcraft isn't just about making gold and really should be the smallest part of your playtime.

    I hope this Auctioneer Gold Guide will help you get rich in World of Warcraft but at the same time free up farm time so you can actually enjoy the game for what it is meant to be; fun! So, don't sit at your computer 24-7 just to make gold. Go out, raid, PvP, whatever, just make sure to have fun (^_^)v.
