Hey guys, the hot thing recently seems to be those "hall of fame/shame" threads that are for items that you had drop for you that are either ridiculously good or bad, depending on the thread.
I recently started to play the AH and have some nice little tips that I have started to act on and it's been working nicely. I've been able to buy stuff and resell it pretty consistently in some niche markets and other "stat break point" markets which is when items with one stat value (arbitrary number, 79 INT) at one price doubles or triples in price once you get to the next "search break point" (a common value people use to search, like 100 INT). Usually, that market only works with socketed items where values can vary wildly if they are empty compared to full ones.
Anyway, I don't mean to ramble on here, just wanted to share a little background, so let's get to the point!
What I would like to see is pics of everyone's AH log after doing some sick flips! Edit the log if you have to to get the Purchased and the Sold lines in the same pic, or if you're REALLY lazy you could just say what you flipped, but I think seeing a pic is cooler!
So, this flip I'm about to show you may not be "sick" in the sense that it made me millions of gold, but the profit I made in the amount of time it took makes it pretty sick to me! Seeing how something like this can be done over and over pretty consistently makes it pretty "sick" as well.
Hope to see your pics soon!
Goodluck on the AH guys and I wish you tons of gold in your adventures!
my best and only good sell was a 1100 dps 99crit socket 2h mighty weapon that i bought for 200k for my barb, used it a while then sold it for 5kk
epic profit, but thats all now the money is gone and the upgrade on my increased a few stats only...
I to, am too lazy for pics. BUT, man I bought this one 200k wep, was like 800ish dps, 200int 100vit, and went directly to the trade channel and posted it. Some dude straight up offered 800k!!!!!!! I said deal and made 600k profit in a window of 2min. No 15% bs!

I've seen it more than I've bought it, because I think to myself "what is wrong with this item that makes it worth so much less" and 10 seconds later someone eles has bought it. But my success with a missing digit only happened once, from what I remember.
Sockets at least 4-6 times.
I wanted to punch my monitor the other night because my clicking speed was way too slow. I missed out on a 1h sword that was 820dps, 118str, 118sta, 700 loh, socket. It was on the AH for 20k.................. I clicked the buyout button like a mad man and was a little sad inside when I got the "Item is no longer available" message.
