  • Auctioneer doesn't appear in the call chain, and it appears to be a reference to a value in Blizzard's code.
    From their released code, it appears that something went wrong in their quality value lookup for item colors (line 1095), resulting in a NIL value for color, which then goes boom when they try to access the components of the color on line 1098.

    This one needs to be written up for Blizzard to debug. If you can, include details about what you were browsing at the time that may have triggered the bad item quality lookup.
  • Blizzard has safety code in place that assumes color can be NIL in some of their code, but uses the value without safety checks in other parts of the code.
  • this is the standard Blizzard error that i always get these days when scanning the AH...
    during a full scan i get between 100 and 400..500 such errors.

    (to see the full error counter in Swatter after you finish scanning go back a page in Swatter and then go forward again - Swatter has a bug where it doesn't update the error count in real time if it's the same error.)

    after the scan finishes i copy the final error report in clipboard then hit the game system menu -> help -> submit bug. Paste the error message there and send it to Blizzard. (that form only accepts 500 characters, so it will trim the error report)

    Any error caused by an addon that has a name starting with "AddOns\Blizzard_" should be reported there. (might take 6+ months for them to fix things and some things might never be fixed... e.g. they screwed up the living steel belt buckle at the end of Pandaria/start of Draenor and it's still causing LUA errors when i try to socket a gem for my timewalking armour set)
  • ty for your responses
  • I was corrected that Thank you for your help would be more polite. Thx Anke ...

    So thank you for your help.
