But work. And golfing. And playing with my daughter. And drawing. And family. And...well, you get the picture. WoW takes a backseat. Which brings me to this post:
Auction posting times. You might have some bloggers swear up and down with 12 hour. Or 24 hour. Then you get me. Telling you to not block out 48 hour postings. I know you are thinking right now..."Why would I post <insert hella AH fee item here> for 48? The undercutting wars is just a waste, and I don't get sales". Well, you are definitely correct there. However the majority of other items (and yes, even gems) I post on a strict 48 hour schedule (and yes, TSM is set for 48. Yeah, Glyphs. I said it...).
Now another question pops into your head...."That's mos def server dependent Alto". Yeah, not so much. It goes back to one of my #1 AH rules...."IF IT'S IN YOUR BAGS, YOU AREN'T SELLING". So if you know you won't be logged in for a day or two, get them buggers up on a 48. Who cares that it costs a bit more gold, you will have more sales. More sales= More gold in your pocket. Do you know anyone that is "rich" that doesn't spend money to make money? Didn't think so.....
Since gems have basically one of the highest "fees" that you have to deal with (as most others are just silvers- once again, the higher the vendor value, the higher the AH posting "fee")- due to the overall mass of sales, reposting, etc, it's still viable if you absolutely have to. Now if you are a log in daily type, and don't mind cowering infront of the AH, by all means, 24 hour should work fine. But for the rest of you (us), this is the way to roll.
Still have doubts? After not even logging in for two days:
*In case you are wondering, no decks, no epix, mainly glyphs (13K), cards (8K), and "flipping" under 80 items (blues and purps) were what sold (a few pets and a few gems were on the list too, but not significant sales).
So let's make a deal. If you want to be legit in your AH sales, and you have limited playtime, make sure that you pay that little extra and go with the 48's. You won't be disappointed.... =)
