Its's not inflation is market manipulation.
Its's not inflation is market manipulation. Its pure 100% a group of players manipulatingf the AH - Example - in the last two weeks 16 slot bags have gone from 8.5 gold to 24.8 Gold. and its the same 5 playes that are the only ones posting up the bags. They buy out thier compention and then radicaly inflate the cost. Its BS - Its Chineese bot farm tactis and its ruining your server ( its nto just bags btw before you start with that tactic its fundementaly the entire AH this was a single example ) I'm not new, but if i was , it would be a nightmare to get the basics. Yes I understand that " You can get bags off the online shop " - if that is why you have taken no action agaisnt thease type of predetory market tactics is because you might make a buck off the AH prices being Jacked up then IDK what more to say then Shame.
Yes, it's all about how much and what you sell for at the auction and if it's possible to buy something and immediately put it up for bid = you destroy the competition and you can set the price you want
In my opinion, it would be better to impose a 48-hour lock on items bought from the auction (you cannot return the item to the auction for 48 hours, even if you forward it to another character) and that, in my opinion, would at least make it possible to create healthy competition.Even the items you make are locked (Transmute)
I remember 16 slot backpacks for 4 gold
@JCallous It was especially bad in the last 2 Weeks. I created a new character and bought some Heroic Bloodforged gear. Funny thing is, its an UNPOPULAR build (no Videos since a few month and the big Youtuber Videos are like a year old or more)
There was 1 guy selling ALL the items, no matter for what Slot, no Matter if Mail or Plate etc.
Same for crafting mats. It felt like this one player controlled 20% of the whole Auctionhouse and I saw via auc history data, that the guy resells tons of 45 Gold Items for 400+
The problem is, he snipes all items (maybe even a Bot User), I bet he even disenchants or vendors most items, because its still more profitable, if he keeps the market small and we have to pay ULTRAPREMIUM for his "Flipping Service".
F*ck these people...
I bet that many people are botting and the suspicious AH sellers should be checked and inspected.
where is this diferent from real life? its the so called free market, you are just pissed because you are broke and / or poorer than the next beside you...
deal with it and stop bitching, its the most easy thing in this game... make gold, after leveling.
bitching wont get you anywhere, but maybe selling trinkets will, maybe doing some #market manipulation# like buying and selling?
@Bernas999 - Thats a lovely attitude to have. Its funny how quickly you went to attacking me instead of addressing the problem. Insults from a random are not going to hurt me. If you are expecting some huge reaction to your comment, you are going to be let down. Its not about getting gold or any of that. It's about Bots and manipulation of the AH. This damages the Game in general and the Devs have even addmited so with the recent changes to AH rates. So you making statements that are basicaly " Get good noob" arn't going to make the Game beter for ALL of us. You seem to be in the Minorty in your take anyway. So may I recomend offering ideas for a solution instead of being a little negative nacy.
