I won the Auction House!

So, I crawled out of bed around 3 PM server today (Yay 4 week vacation!) and was running around tending to my alts. I saw someone barking for Mysterious Fortune Cards in Trade, selling them for 100g on the AH.  Now, I have more herbs than I know what to do with, after power-leveling Herbalism, along with several friends who just send me herbs for no reason. I wasn't looking to gain a longstanding foothold in the market, but just to play around with it and see how it went.

So I make up a batch of 10 cards, posting 4 on the AH for 99.99.99. They all sold in about 30 seconds.  So I posted up more. Then the tells from the barker began.  Click the image to the right to see the full conversation.

I was very amused. Like I said, I don't care about this market, this is not my favorite market. Hell, after making my seed money in Inscription in Wrath I had no intent to continue making money via glyphs, and this seemed a bit too much like glyphs.  But when someone jumps on you after selling 4 cards and tries to intimidate you out of the AH over Mysterious Fortune Cards . . . you've just got to laugh and string them along.

The most hilarious bit was during the time (s)he was sending me tells, though (s)he did in fact buy out several, I was able to sell about 55 cards to other people right under his/her nose.

What started as an experiment net me 15k in 30 minutes.  I recommend you check this out. If you don't make gold, you may at least get some lulz.


  1. Completely Hillarious. Beleive it or not, the hype has not hit my server, I am only selling a few stacks of 5 the last few days...There is only one competition, nothing in /2 that I have seen, I can only it's a matter of time, and I hope that I am logged in when it happens... =)

    Good to hear the cashflow is coming in for you!
