Using the Snatch Auction Tool

Today I am going to show you how to use a great tool that is built within the Auctioneer addon (available at curse gaming). The Snatch tab should be at the bottom of you Auction House Window. The Snatch tool allows you to put together a list of common items you are looking to flip or use for crafting.

For example, I have mine look for crusader orbs, frozen orbs, eternal fires, epic uncut gems, etc. If the snatch tool finds any of these items at the price threshold you have specified it will bring up a popup box notifying you of the item and whether or not you would like to purchase it.

1) Drag the item you want to add (Where it says "Drop Item Into Box") or shift click an item to insert into box.
2) Click Add
3) Check Mark Allow Bids & Buyouts
4) Enter a maximum price if needed
5) Run an AH Scan
6) Go back to snatch tab and search the scan
7) Profit!

The key is the more you automate your auction house work the more gold you will rake in. It's all about working easier not harder.

Note: If you don't have an item in stock to drop into the snatch box go to the main Auction House Tab, Right Click on the magnify glass icon at the top of the screen. This will open up the auctioneer tabs in a separate dialog box from the auction house. This way you can search for an item them shift click that item to add it to the snatch list.

I have yet to do this but am planning on setting this up tonight.
I know I want to set my price threshold on Saronite Ore at 12.5g per stack. Which for some reason there tends to be quite a bit of during the weekend.

Besides this, what other items tend to be evenly priced across all servers?

@ Ralthrus
I've been able to use it on Frost lotus, cobalt ore, titanium ore, and raid pots/flasks. Check the history of these items the next few days on your realm, get a feel for their price fluctuations and see if you can flip them for profit.

Not sure what you mean by "Drag or type in the item". Where is the option to "type" the name of an item with in the snatch tab of auctioneer?

@ Anon,
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I updated the post and added a section for how to add an item when you don't have it in stock.

Have you guys seen this program called WoW Auto Auctions? It uses the remote auction house and is really useful for spying on the auction house even when your not in game or at the auction house. The free version alerts you when it finds an item on your snatch list. While the paid version actually buys the items for you! The site says its legal too. Here's the link:
