When I was new I would occasionally get a good deal from the old auction house

Then the honor came out and it was just a pointless free-for-all to overpay for $1 items

Now I'm just happy I have the honor done so I don't have to really overpay to get them.

The update does make it extremely dull - I don't play this game to play in dull areas. I really do not see the point of the auction house in its current format.

Copy EBay's format, we all know how to use that and it would be more useful.


I found it useful. Someone was selling a Poker Chip cheap and I managed to get it for 70 million. I put it up at the auction house for a month and by the time it was sold, managed a profit of about 20 million. This was during a time when I didn't have consistent internet access.

If I had time to scan the Trade chat as I once did, this would be an area I would try to latch onto since there is a market for collectibles. The so-called problem is that the auction house is for large dollar items and not everybody is interested or capable in playing around with that kind of cash. The Auction House is a fine place. It's niche, but that doesn't make it useless, but it does expose some for not having insight or perspective on potential and or that maybe they believe that all areas of the game should be fully useful to everyone at the same time.

If anything, you could say that the problem is not with the functionality of the Auction House (because it works rather well in a rather buggy game) but that there's not quite enough collectibles to see the place buzzing with increased activity. Perhaps if the auction house eliminated the selling fee it would become a bit more popular, but I would guess that what's really needed are more types of collectibles and perhaps for some additional types to have functions (maybe hidden?) other than "picture + name" as most seem to be.

Just thoughts on the matter.

totally agree an ebay style auction is what is needed here as it would benefit everyone not just the rich and super rich

When all the so-called "rare" items as such get over circulated and there is over 1000 you'll only see a minority of items

In my opinion, there should be 2 auction houses..one for rare items, one for normal items.

Definitely better than before. Before it had no reasonable use, now at least it's a good place for rare items that you want to force sell at the best price instead of guessing in a bazaar. For everything else there is and always has been the bazaar (since item market). TH my main gripe with trading atm is that it does show bazaars in the item market, the game was much more exciting and abuzz when you could go at it scouring for deals in forgotten bazaars.

I am curious as to what sellers think of the lack of reserve. I know a few people who decided not to offer their rares for that reason, but clearly it has not stopped some fairly serious collectors from giving it a go.

I think that the old way for the auction house was really good having all items be able to be sold without the amount of stuff in the items market, people just like the rush of auctioning their things off and having the chance to bid on everything...

Yeah i miss the old auction house where you could buy and sell anything. As a noob i made a great deal of my initial money through smart auction house buys. It was also one of those areas that had a small touch of something close to excitement. Winning something for $50 that i was able to sell on for $250,0000 was probably half the reason i kept playing. I don't think i've ever sold anything on the auction market though.

If you have the money for collectibles then i guess having them where you might pick them up for a bargain price is probably nice but for me the auction house is just another link that i don't bother clicking.

Auctions are a bad idea in a game like this, don't know why they are trying to resurrect a dead horse.

I never used the auction house but it should protect the sellers from muggings for a couple of hours, like the Lottery. A protective system for a while...maybe then people will start to use it again.
