    Item Price Advice

    I couldn't find a thread where people can ask how much a certain item may be worth on their server, so I thought I'd start one. (If I'm wrong, flame me - then point me in the right direction).

    I had a world epic drop in Molten Core today:


    Trouble is, I've not got it in any of my AH scans. My data is at least 8 months to a year old. So I'm guessing its worth something....

    Any ideas what I should charge for it?

    Looking at various sites which give auction price data the average price seems to be around 400-500g.
    When selling this you'll be looking for a very specific customer.i.e. a collector and thus selling items like this tends to be one of the rare occasions i actually try to sell something in trade.
    As you are selling to such a minority market its price is more defined by what they will pay rather than what you want to sell it for as there will likely be very few people you could potentially sell this to and therefore are sort of stuck with each other.

    Two methods i use for selling such items is either to advertise in trade until you get someone showing serious interest (don't give a price in trade) then haggle with them to get the best price you can.
    Or you could try instead, or in combination, putting it on the AH. I would over price it on the AH and maybe a collector will see it and snap it up but more as an advertisement and you will likely get a collector see it and then whisper you to make a deal.

    Erm, yeah you're right. I ran MC last thing but I had been through Slave Pens and the Dark Portal before that. It must've dropped in one of those.

    The best strategy I've found for items like this is to put it on the AH and wait for a whisper or mail from a buyer. Personally, I've found that advertising in trade decreases the worth of an item as trolls love to offer 1c or shout out that your item is worthless. Do it too much and your item will have its reputation devalued and people won't pay a high price for it. A serious collector would be looking for your item and would spot it on the AH.
