    posted a message on How to Snipe items in the AH -make millions of gold!
    Quote from MaddogBG012788

    To be honest the only problem I have with the AH at the moment is a lot of time when people do go for the snipe at the less than 10 secs left on timer the AH gets overloaded and you error out of the item, thus it never changed to what the current new bid is and you have no way to counter snipe. Thus it makes it a risky business sometimes, especially if you really want the item for an upgrade and not just something to resell.

    Just type the max gold/money you're willing to spend. You'll either get it or you won't, regardless of counter snipes. I do often put a ten million snipe if I feel the item is worth it even if the current bid would be only 3-4 millions.

    Also, it's pretty evident that a hard close leads to a higher price than a soft close. In a hard close people will bid up to the price they are willing to pay, and if they don't get the item, it wasn't worth the gold anyways (in their opinion) and some bugger didn't get the item cheap. In case the price people are willing to pay is too low, someone is going to snipe the auction.

    Just a friendly reminder, you can bid on your own auctions if you think the price is too low and you think someone is going to snipe it off. At worst you'll lose the 15% transaction fee if no-one overbids you.

    Also, I highly advice against using a bid auction in most situations. People are generally willing to pay a premium for a buyout when looking for upgrades, so that they can just get the item and be back to kicking demon butt. Bids WILL go for less than buyouts since the only reason to place a bid is to try to get either something that has no equivalents with a buyout or get something cheaper than with a buyout. If you're unsure about the pricing of your item, place a buyout at a price point you find fair, then put a bid at ~20-30% lower, so that if you overpriced, someone might still bid and get the item at 70-80% of the buyout. Then if no-one bids, you'll know that even ~80% is stretching it for the item you have.

    Only star do. Anything below is overpriced. I guess people may still buy them though if theyre desperate.

    Is there a reason why anyone would socket anything below a star :D? Or try to convert gold into cash, for that matter? Seing as even a star is only ~600k on EU.

    I've sold some spare gems I had for a couple ten euros on the EU RMAH (~10M gold?), but haven't tried selling them in large scale.


    On a related topic, this game is too darn easy. I was already past 100 million gold before I ditched half of it on upgrades for my barb.

    It saved my first summer job out of boredom, the summer of 2004 was filled with boring songs, but Franz Ferdinand's hit single Take Me Out was catchy.

    I second what has been said about Lost. I myself actually lost interest gradually during the third season. The series just started to feel like it was prolonged for the sake of its popularity for more than the content warranted for.

    I actually found Big Bang Theory a while ago (it was my little sister watching it, but now I see it has been mentioned in this thread already). Nerd humor is always awesome, and the acting is superior for a comedy show (I'm stupefied as to how Jim Parsons can play Sheldon without cracking up all the time).

    EDIT:

    I generally like series that have the grace of ending when the story elements have been explored thoroughly and the only reason to continue would be to milk viewers with B-grade content until the show would be axed. HBO gets a star medal for this, I don't feel that any of it's productions have been dragged on for longer than they warranted for.

    There's still some gear left to sell. May not bother, at the moment it's about 32 mill. I don't know if that's considered a lot or not, with the inflation.

    Buy gems with the gold, put gems into RMAH. Those sell rather good.

    Like others have said, your gear is too low for a ww build for act 3. You should be able to do a2 no problems though, but you need more gear for a3.

    posted a message on undercutting
    As stated above, I see how long similar items have been up for auction. The more they have been unsold for, the more I'll undercut. I also undercut more in cheaper items. There is no point for me to put up a 200k item that doesn't possibly sell when I can put it for 100-120k and use that AH spot for something better. On the other hand I won't undercut a 100M item by more than 5-10M. Commodities I don't undercut, but list at the "last 10 trades" price and relist if it doesn't sell within an hour.

    I also list my items higher than the cheapest one quite often, when I judge that mine is worth more than the cheapest based on good secondary stats.

    And up we go again.

    Edit: this has been sold for a 45M PM buyout offer, which satisfied the price range I was expecting.
