WoW Auction House Guide
The WoW auction house is a great way to make some gold in World of Warcraft. If played right
you can make a serious amount of money buying and selling but it does help if you have the inside edge.
At its most basic the WoW auction house is there to make you money. Buy low and sell high is the order of the
day but when you are trying to work it to your favour there a few simple rules you can use to get the most out of
Dominating the WoW Auction House
The first step is to search around a bit and find out what the most profitable item is in the area you want to
dominate. These things change from server to server so have a good look around and see what you can come up
A really handy tool to help you get the most out of the WoW auction house is the Auctioneer addon. This great
tool helps by looking at the market and scanning all the items that are selling for less than the average market

After a while you will get an idea of the worth of each item and then you can move on to the next phase with the
knowledge of what is good for selling and what to avoid.
Now that you know what is going to make the most profit save up your gold and wipe out any suppliers of all of
their stock of the item.
Now you can put the item back on sale, at your new, higher price. Only put a little on the market at a time or
you will get people thinking it is so readily available it isn't worth the cash.
WoW Auction House Guide Tip
If you were to walk into a store and see something for $50.00 and the same thing right next to it for $49.99
which one would you buy? Most people would get the $49.99 item without a second thought as it looks far cheaper but
is really only 0.01c less than the other. Our mind tells us it is much less than the other as we only scan the
price before making a decision so why not use the same trick in the WoW auction house?
- Put your item up for sale at 1 copper less than your competitors are and watch the sales flood in!
What is the best time to visit the WoW auction house?
By far the best time to buy and sell at the WoW auction house is on the weekend. Not everyone can afford the
time during the week to play World of Warcraft as they have work or school to go to so they log on the most Friday
night through to Sunday night when it starts to drop off again as people get ready to go back to work/school on the
This means they save themselves for the weekend and want to get the most they can out of the time they have and
there are a couple ways you can play this.
One is to target the people playing World of Warcraft on the Friday evening and Saturday morning as they are
going to want to use their time enjoying the game, not leveling up, so they take the short cut and buy the things
they need to advance from the WoW auction house. This means you can get hold of a lot of different items including
Armor, Weapons, Potions and more and sell them on to the players that really don't want to waste the time doing it
Once they have the stuff they need they go off and play the game so you want to get in the WoW auction house
early evening before they settle down and go off to do the killing part!
The other thing you can do if you are lucky enough to be able to get on the game during the week is to buy stuff
cheap and hang on to it till the weekend rush when more people are on.
People are going to be desperate to get going in the short time they have to play so when they arrive at the WoW
auction house they will have the purse strings open and ready to buy so they can get on with the quests. As long as
you are there with the (cheaper) stuff you bought during the week you are bound to make a profit.
Make Your Item Stand Out In The WoW Auction House
Use pricing and minimum bids that are different to the other sellers. By doing this you will stand out from the
lists all ending in the same number and when combined with the tip above you will be seen by far more people.
In the WoW auction house the lists are sorted by lowest minimum bid price at the top if they have the same
amount bid on them.
This means by putting a lower minimum bid on your WoW auction house listing you will be seen at the top and
attract people to it. Because of this you shouldn't lose any money as the more people means more bids. Even if they
are going up slower than the others the end result is the same, gold for you!
Scaling The WoW Auction House Strategy
When you find something that you can get a steady profit on this way it's time to scale it or move on. If you
are going to scale it then you need to find other profitable items in the same area, but if this proves hard as
there are no more good items then you just move on to a different area of items and start again.
Remember that most of the people that are hanging around in the WoW auction house are looking to buy something
there and then, otherwise they wouldn't be there!
WoW Auction House Guide Tip
If you are after some instant cash then it is best to use a fixed price for the item you want to sell and just
undercut the competition slightly to make it attractive (see Tip 2 above) as I said people are there to buy most
the time and while yo can make some serious gold putting things up for bidding there is no reason why you can't
sell a few this way.
- All you have to do is get the right item in front of the right people and collect the gold. Take this new
found wealth and start all over again and just keep doing this till you have more gold than you know what to do
