Segment 4 – E-mail/Q&A

Fallenmorn sez:

This is Fallenmorn, Aerie Peak (same as the 5 star review in itunes).
I wanted to pass on a suggestion for the loot table, in case you
haven’t tried it already, and ask a question.

Second, I have a question, or a request for a warcraft etiquette
ruling from those who have been around for a lot longer than I (I
started in October ’10). I’ve become fairly skilled at auctioneering,
especially with glyphs, which on my server fluctuate wildly (often
going from 15 gold to 150 gold and back in two days). One of the ways
I make money is to pick a glyph that is wildly overpriced, make 4 or
6, and post them for between 1 and 5 gold below the going rate. Two
days later, I bring the price down a little more, but always at least
double the cost of materials.

Now twice I’ve had people WOW message my bank alt (different toon,
where I do my posting from and little else) to curse and complain
about my undercutting them, and demand I switch to merely undercutting
a copper or two or maybe a silver as the “correct way to post”.
Personally, I think that the auction house is fair, and whatever price
you can get people to pay, you’re welcome to post at. But I was
wondering, is there any point of etiquette or good behavior that says
you must keep your prices near the wildly overpriced current going
rate? Gill, Stacalm, friends of the show, views on this? While I don’ts
agree with the complaint, I don’t want to be doing something that
might be equivalent, say, to a mage needing everything in a PUG.

Anyway, great show, keep up the good work, can’t wait to hear the next episode!

-Fallenmorn, Aerie Peak Server, Alliance Nation Guild

PS. I love how chaotic the auction house is when all the mods are
down. So many profitable opportunities 🙂

Tobito Sez:

I think both of you are wrong about Bound-to-Battlenet-Account items. You can ONLY send them to characters on your same realm BUT on a different account that is also tied to YOUR battlenet account.
So, if I have 2 accounts (1 and 2) that are tied to the same Battlenet account, I can send a BoA item from my character on account1 to my character on account2, but ONLY if the two toons involved are on the same Server.

My evidence:
On April 5th, the Devs did a Q&A session, and one of the questions was the following:
Q: Is there any plan to allow Account Bound items to be transfer to other realms? This could really give meaning to the phrase “Account Bound”.
A: Yes. Some day. It will take a lot of programmer time to implement, but it’s something we want to do.

If Blizzard had something like what you guys are talking about planned, I think their answer would have been more definitive than that. Thus, the way I read their description is the above, and I think that is the communities general consensus.

“Zool-ah-mahn” (Zul’Aman) and “Zool-gah-roob” (Zul’Gurub)

It’s great to have a team that can speak intelligently about subjects ranging from game play, lore, up and coming, fun things to do in WoW, and metagaming.
