So, I've been working the AH more lately, because I've gotten into buying relatively cheap Saronite, prospecting it, cutting some gems, and trying to make a profit.
I've read several - and continue to - AH-centric blogs, and there's a neat trick to be done, where you take a item that can be combined/uncombined, and make money due to a difference in the two markets.
Eternal/Crystallized Fire is a great example.
Here's what I have in my .txt file from today.
So, by breaking the eternals into crystallized, I get about 48% more profit because I can sell 10 Crystallized for 19.99g but 1 Eternal will only sell for 13.99g.
You don't even have to get a great deal in /trade like I did for this to work.
Currently, Eternals are listing at 14-15g, Crystallized at ~25 per 10.
What other fun AH quirks have you guys noticed.
And yes, I realize this is because miners have an odd number of Crystallized fire that they want to use to smelt Titansteel. The smart miner would buy the etneral and break it down and just hang on to his Crystallized. C'est la vie.
