One of the first things on a new server for me to do is getting some auction helper to peddle my harvested herbs and skinned skins.

After some searching on this forum i kept failing to get my preferred addon, Auctioneer working.
I tried Aux, but it's not what i'm used to and it doesn't do what i want, or i just don't know how to use it properly.

I've been trying to get Auctioneer to work and finally achieved success and so now i share my gained knowledge here for other vanilla newbs that are looking to get this addon working.

STEP 1: Download all the files

You will need Auctioneer itself, plus two others that Auctioneer depends on to function properly.
Follow the below links and down all 3 files.
Also i will be ssuming that you install this on a fresh WoW client install, you can "reset" your install by deleting the WTF folder found in the Turtle WoW Client folder.
If you already have many addons setup you might want to omit this, but depending on earlier failed attempts to install Auctioneer (especially Stubby) you might encounter errors, for those see below.


STEP 2: Extract the files in your addon folder

The easiest way to do this is just copy all three downloaded .ZIP files into you wow addon folder.
For a standard Turtle wow install this would be X:\Turtle WoW\Interface\Addons (remember to change X to the drive letter where you installed the Turtle Wow Client)

Once copied extract the files. I'm using WINRAR( for this but other like 7ZIP might work too.
In Windows just right-click the .ZIP files and select "Extract here"
RENAME the newly extracted folders to remove any bit containing "-".
Having a dash in the addon folder name will prevent the client from loading the addon.
So RENAME the folder Auctioneer-Vanilla-Master or Auctioneer-Master to just plain "Auctioneer".

Step 3: Launch WoW, login and enable Addons

Once properly extracted you can now launch the client and login.
After login at the character selection screen at the bootm right corner you will see a button marked "addons"
When you click the button a list of installed addons will be shown.
Make sure to ENABLE "load out of date addons" and ENABLE "Auctioneer", "EnhTooltip" and "Stubby"
Click ok and you can now enter the game with the addon loaded.

Note 1:

Veteran user of Auctioneer in a newer expansion might expect the "SCAN" button but it's missing when at the auction master in this version.
In this older version that button is not yet implemented, so to scan the auctions just go to the auction master and type "/auctioneer scan" in the chat.

Note 2:
It is important to understand you tried this on a fresh/clean client or things might go wrong.
My biggest issue was that i tried wrong/not working addons before, and cached data was interfering with this correct addons.
I kept getting errors upon login about Stubby getting a NIL value.
If you get something similar, try deleting the old addon .LUA file that you might already have.
In case of stubby i had to delete X:\\Turtle WoW\WTF\ Account\"Your account name"\Saved Variables\Stubby.lua (again Change X with your client installation drive and insert your account name)
If you have separate configurations for your addons per character look for the files in X:\\Turtle WoW\WTF\ Account\"Your account name"\Turtle Wow\"Your character name(s)"\Saved variables\Stubby.lua
(above info referenced from the Nostalrius forums: ... 7&start=10)

Congrats, your addon should now be working and you're well on your way to WoW-richdom .

Happy trading!

When you download the auctineer map file / addon don't forget to change the file name from Auctioneer-Vanilla-master > Auctioneer

So cut off the -Vanilla-master part, after this the game seems to recognize the addons as being there (in the interface > addons). Same principle seemed to apply for the 'Vanilla Plus' Private Server when I tried.

Thanks for sharing the guide, wil try out:

Mentioned by Topic Starter today.

I was secretly hoping for a alpha/vanilla client working Tradeskillmaster addon version like the one Classic WoW has but it seems this is the best next option till this date.

Not exactly a features of auctioneer, but I miss following:

Searching for alternatives. For example when I search for Runecloth Bag(14 slot), I'd like to see Journeyman Backpack (14slot) too.

In "post" window when I choose green item with random suffix (of the bear) I would like to see all items of the type with different suffixes (of power, of the wolf etc).

Reuse of dataset. When I choose item in "post" tab, it shows result of the search. When I switch to "search" tab and search for exactly same item, I'd like to see same result of the search in this tab. Or at least button "buyout" in "post" tab.

Calculation of cost price. For example I am alchemist. I want to choose some specific recipe and see how much will it cost to craft 10, 20, 100 units of it using materials from AH.
Xudo - tauren warrior 19 Sergeant. Consumed by real life.
No 60 lvl character.
Applying enchant to item should increase required level
Add lvl requirement to bandages
Rework low level recipes

Have fun not only at 60.
