Have you ever been to a horse race? Or seen one on tv? Ok. This follows the good ol' "horse blinders" saying.....If you have no idea what I am talking about, many track horses have these "blinders" they wear on either side of their head, causing the horse to not see to their sides, only to focus on their current path (you might have heard the term "they weren't paying attention, they really had their blinders on". This is something I have noticed works with WoW too, when something big happens (new patch, new instance, new basically anything) the masses seem to "put the blinders on" and forget things.....so........
Since I am always on the lookout for a way to make a buck (or gold, in this case) I figured I would check something out this morning. Since many lost all their addons in the last patch, alot of people that swore by Auctioneer were now left with nothing (or the quick search on Curse-gaming, and download of Auctionator (which I am a total noob with, thank the glyph gods that its easy to use) or maybe it was all the hoopula with the new patch, but I have pulled in some nice "bid" auctions for "pennies on the dollar".
Last night, I put 18 bids on rare/epics ending in within 12 hours, and guess what? I won all 18 (so of course, I did the same again this morning). They were all "old school" blues and purps (including two kara recipies) but they are still selling on my main server for 300g+ for weaps and/or gear, and upwards of 750g to 1500g for epic recipies.
Is this just a coincidence you ask? Thats what I thought. Till I just logged in ten minutes ago and found that out of 14 bids, I had already won 9, with still being top bidder on the other 5. So I am not thinking it's coincidence....anymore. I am sure this won't last long, but hey, a gold is a gold, and profits are profits, right?
