    If Using TSM is Auctioneer Still Needed?

    For some reason I had in my mind that Auctioneer was needed to be able to fully utilize TSM but I think I am totally wrong.

    So what I would like to verify is that if I delete Auctioneer if TSM will still fully function.

    Thanks.

    Yes it will, it just looks like Aucutioneer is doing something because it kind of sticks it's nose in anything and everything that has to do with the Auction House.

    You can disable Auctioneer because TSM builds it's own pricing data base.

    Any thoughts for those with experience with TSM on its price information versus Auctioneer? Im having a hard time letting go.

    But where are the percentages! that one feature has been why I always preferred auctioneer. I currently prefer the appraiser and the snatch list tools over TSM's as well. To be honest I still just use TSM like QA3. Though the shopping list is pretty nice if you don't have snatch lists setup already.

    Percentages look shiney but once you gain personal knowledge you soon notice that percentages are often far from accurate and can be easily manipulated.

    As i've always said auctioneer is a great addon for people new to the AH but once you gain some knowledge there are much better addons to do the jobs it does much quicker and more efficiently and you no longer need your hand held to tell you it's ok to buy something.
    I never look to put down auctioneer as it is a great addon for people new to the AH and can teach you a lot but once you have learnt what it teaches you it begins to hold back.

    For a comparison it's like comparing clicking to keybinding. Clicking is easy to do and does the job, keybinding is harder to learn but once you do it vastly improves your gameplay and makes you much faster.
    Auctioneer is easy to use and does the job, using your own knowledge and other addons is harder to learn but once you do it vastly improves your efficiency and ability to make gold.

    TSM works fine without auctioneer. However, I find the auctioneer appraiser module, or some other equivilant, to still be necessary while using TSM. The reason being that if someone undercuts my item(s) by say 300g, TSM may tell me to cancel that item and relist it at the lower price. When, sometimes, the smart thing to do would be to buyout that person and not cancel my item(s). I find myself needing to check auctioneer appraiser whenever TSM suggests I cancel an item, just to make sure I'm not being screwed by some person posting 1 item at a very low price.

    You can use the "Max Price Gap" setting to prevent it posting...but I was thinking about ways to improve this last night cause I was doing this to one of the botters on my server (undercutting by a ton and then buying their when they repost). One possible solution would be to show the lowest 3 prices the item is selling for or something in the post frame. (or even the % different between the lowest and 2nd/3rd lowest prices).
