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.
