Specifically for making profit at the auction house. I'm not sure if there is such a thing, so I will try to explain what I mean first.

Lets pretend I'm on my enchanter, I want to produce an enchant scroll. My current process is to add up the cost of materials (6 abyss crystals, 6 greater cosmic, 40 infinite dust). I look up the prices of these materials, and I find abyss crystals are 43g each, greater cosmics are 14g each, and each stack of infinite dust for 33g. My current process is slow, partially because I'm not great at math, partially because this is manual. So I add them up like (6*43)+(6*14)+(2*33)= 258+84+66= 408

I'm looking for some addon that can take live prices of materials, add them up and give me a "total cost to produce this item" price. So I could go through my list quickly, see the Massacre enchant costs 408 to produce, Berserking costs XYZ and 81sp to Staff costs ABC. My way is slow, and I repeat it a few times a day on a few different professions. If there is no such add-on its not the end of the world, but I just figure I'm not being very efficient right now.

I am not sure if this is any good as all i did was google the parameters you asked about but i am guessing others must have tried it out.

Absolutely perfect! Exactly what I was looking for, thanks so much =)

So the auction window is auctioneer. Beside that I have my enchanting book open. This mod slightly modified it. There are 2 columns added to each enchant in my skill book now. The left column, when I search that enchant in the AH it gives me the average value. The right column gives me the price to craft an item. First I have to look up each material though, then the addon performs a quick scan. Then it calculates the price.

This will save me so much time and help me make far more gold. I already see many gold oppurtunities from enchanting alone that I once skipped. Thanks again.

Save yourself some time, do a full auction search. There's a fast way to do it.

As soon as you open Auctioneer, before you touch it, type /addv getall. This has to be a chat command, not a command that gets typed into the auctioneer window, hence the need to do this immediately upon launching Auctioneer (when I say "launch" I mean right click on the auctioneer NPC).

I'm not quite sure how it is that this is faster, I think it actually downloads the data and then scans it. It takes a minute or two. That's actual time.
