This isn't really related to to the column, but I figured here would be the place to ask it.Did the patch break auctioneer for anyone else? The UI is totally bugged and it's not possible to use the out-of-date version. Any word on if/when they're getting a new version out?

Yeah, auctioneer totally broke for me. Dunno when they're going to get an update out, but it made me switch to auctionator. I now prefer that addon, so in a way it was a good thing!

It broke it for me, but a few days ago the people at auctioneeraddon.com released a beta version that fixed it. Go to their site and download the BETA version and you should be good to go.On a related note, I also noticed that the Fast Scan is really fast now. Previously it would take about 7 minutes for 30k auctions, now it does it in like 3 minutes.

One word, Auctionator. It works way better than Auctioneer for practically everything, but particularly for buying and selling. And it works now. After 4.2 broke auctioneer, I tried auctionator and had both that i used sometimes on different toons. After about a month i deleted auctioneer entirely. I still use beancounter, and all the datas saved, its just way easier to use.Look into it, you can get it on curse and I assume wowace (not sure, curse user here)Point of this story? My server has about 16k auctions usually and the fast scan takes... 8 seconds. On average. 16s
is much much less than 3 or 7 minutes. Stupid comment system.

Cool, I'll get auctionator right away. Appreciate the replies all.

I'm with Kram. Once I learned that there are other addons that do all the useful stuff auctioneer does without all the useless stuff, I never looked back. Also, there's a live 4.3 version of Auctionator up on curse, and it'll be weeks yet until the Auctioneer team promotes their beta to live.

I also recommend auctionator. On my server the AH scan is done sometimes before my finger comes up from the mouse button, and its interface for buying and selling is very convenient.

Basil, your endorsement of auctionator got me to install it, and I like it very much for easily buying/pricing stacks of goods.I use auctioneer simply for the amount of data it generates. I also use the enchantrix disenchanting data to make lots of money. I find that Auctioneer's search functionality trumps anything that I've found in auctionator. It's nice to be able to search for greens on the AH that will DE for a specific profit, and I haven't found that functionality in Auctionator. I really think that using both of the addons adds more than using one or the other.
