I feel like the new Auction House is a improvement to the economy long term but for myself it did make me suffer in some areas and benefit in some areas.Few of the items I often sell I sold at higher price due to being at stack of 20/200 instead of 1's and that made the overall price remain slightly higher than all the 1's from 5 to 100 that often undercut eachother.But smaller stack items I did manage to sell off better now at higher price since less undercutting occur.I just think that we just need to slowly let the new system find its balance by itself with time as we the community just find the new patterns compared to earlier system.
Regarding the recommendation to check realm balance and population, what is the recommended tool with the seeming demise of RealmPop? WowProgress? Any others? Thank you for the great roundups and stream.
And I thought profanity was not allowed on these pages.
So, the auction system for the last 15 years has been slanted towards sellers, and allowing them to rip off buyers, but now that they finally change it to be a little more buyer friendly, everyone is whining about how unfair it is for them...laughable....
Personal opinion from my experience: New AH is slow as a snail. I pretty much stopped posting my Tmog because it takes average 8 seconds per item to scan and post. Not even gonna mention cancel. I gave up on most of my market and focusing solely on glyphs. Im posting daily 55~ glyphs and some trinkets and it takes me about 12 minutes.... for just 60 items! Blizzard should re-revamp AH. They completely broke it!
The biggest and most annoying thing, is actually posting. I don't use TSM, used to like auctioneer but no longer works. Listing items is a pain, especially scrolls... pop it in, choose duration, hit the sell button, oh it's still in my bags? try again, pop it in, wait 5 secs after the price updates, hit sell, still in bags... It's fine for items that don't stack that you have multiples of, pets and armour/weapons for example, but for stacked stuff and especially crafting mats, it's horrible.
The new AH is far better then the old one..now if they would also disable API for stuff like TSM that would be great.It's an autoboting tool that clocks the workspace with it's constant scans of the AH just horrible,it got better at release but now that they cought up on it,its awful on big realms where everyone is using it.
I kind of doubt that the pets from childrens week sell well.
For people saying the new AH is slow, are you using wow Armory? I have found that some of the addons actually cause the AH to slow down, and once disabled the AH goes by super fast.
I have to agree here. I just did a clean install and have been very sparing on putting back in the addons. It has surprised me how much this has sped up basic game functions.
Thanks for the heads up on the Children's Week. I made a bunch of chocolate cakes and sold about 7 of them at 5kg each until the AH dropped down to 2k each.
