Mogging Item Search and Pricing With Auctionator



In this 20 minute video I go over how to import our newly created Auctionator shopping lists that include pricing tiers by Keelhaul as well as how to use them to find and price mogging items you plan on flipping.

Special thanks to Keelhaul (@DEazeroth) for hammering out the lists and pricing and Twitchie (Twitche Enterprises) for formatting the initial lists for Auctionator. Head past the jump for them importable list.

First off, the addon I use that gives previews when mousing over items is MogIt. Once imported into Auctionator, select a list then click on the items in the list "Armor/Plate/Lofty" to see which of those items are on the AH.

Here's the text to use for the import. (It can all be selected at once and imported and it will automatically create multiple lists.) If you have any questions about the above list not answered in the video please let me know.

Also be sure to read Keel's full unabridged Plate, Mail and Cloth mogging item list posts at The Hatchery.

  1. Great video Jim, and thanks so much for the mention. Really happy with how your lists turned out, since I'm always jumping back to the hatchery posts to see which tiers things are in to decide if non-trivially priced items are worth picking up. Having the pricing included in the list is fantastic. I actually do the same with epic gems in TSM, so I remember what I consider a cheap price for uncut gems when I'm deciding what to buy, cut and sell.

    P.S. I'm male, and twitchietgw (from my twitter handle) is an abbreviation for Twitchie (the Gnome Warlock). He's always had a strong sense of identity, and very quickly became the character I identified with my gold making activities.

    1. Thank you for putting such awesome lists together! Also, male, got it. I'm always careful because I often don't know having only met people online.

  2. Excellent & helpful article & video!!! Do you skip Leather goods or is there a reason it is missing from the lists?

    1. Keel has stated that leather is such a poor seller that he doesn't even bother with it. A few hypothesis why would be that rogues are underplayed as well as druids not seeing their gear.

      It could be that there are sets that sell but so far they have been very much under-performers.

  3. Very useful video, Jimbo buddy!

    I'd combine Auctionator with Tradeskill Master for one simple reason; Saving a lot of time. If I use the exact same system as you for pricing it means that I can set TSM up in a way that lets me do what you do faster. Mog selling can be very time consuming and i'm looking for ways to speed things up as much as 'Addonably' possible.

    I can see how i've failed with some choices that i've made in the past, but I suck at following orders word for word and learning by experience feels better if I want to understand something fully.

    One thing i'll take from this for sure is trying out "Looking for the four specific slot pieces". Why? It's a time saver, especially seen from a gold making perspective were such pieces yield more gold per sale. On active Mogging realms of course.
    Cheers!

    1. I've yet to work TSM into the equation but I'm thinking I will soo as the number of items I have multiplies.

    2. I do the same thing. I integrated Auctionator's searching with TSM's posting. I can post about 1,000 transmog items in about 30 seconds.

  4. Thanks for the video. I am putting it to use now. One question...what addon are you using to show the dress room / tooltip flyout. I found it very helpful seeing the individual item.

    1. The addon for previewing items on mouseover is MogIt.

  6. I would suggest adding Ironhide armor set to Mail class, it's easily worth 500-1k per piece, since it's a plate look-alike set.

  7. Hello, I was wondering what the addon is that allows you to see the toon in the armor as you hover over it, thanks!

  8. Hey thank you very much for all fo the great information! I saw one of your articles last night before watching the video and was just going through each category 1 by 1. I found an item that was on your lists for 1-2k for 500g on the auction house and in my excitement, didn't even think about the fact that it might not sell. I bought it, relisted it at 1499g and it sold within the hour!

    I'm not buying items that are listed for that much anymore just to be safe, but it sold me on this system. I have auctionator all set up now too.

    Thank you very much for the in-depth video and auctionator lists.

  9. This has worked wonders so far, but how about weapons? Is there a short list of rare/unique items out there for importing?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Weapons are a little harder to pin down due to them not selling well in general. For a lot of us it is just testing the waters with items we find that look good. No real lists due to Keelhaul not being big into weapons.

  10. It seems to be a slow market. I did set this up on 2 chars on a different server. Bought a lot of stuff at those low prices but only sold one piece so far...
    Maybe it is too late to get into this market now ?

    1. I'd give it at least 2 weeks of maintaining Keel's prices before you decide to adjust them or not. The market takes a bit to notice the items but they will and the more you sell the more people will see others wearing them and you'll sell more.

  11. Thanks for the vid Jim. Never thought about this til now. What is the addon you are using that shows the rarity of your items in your bag?
