    Stay away from SW to speed up your inbox

    I see a lot of people using SW as there AH of choice they think especially with the mailbox trick that it is the fastest way to post auctions and collect mail.

    I find it one of the slowest it can take a full 30-40 seconds sometimes just to collect mail and for this reason I use Exodar that hell hole no one goes to and I presume for that reason this is why its fast

    I can collect 50 mails in 11 seconds run to AH post and be back before next batch is ready to collect, this way i have cancelled auctions back on and top of the queue as soon as i can, if they are not on then you cant make gold, I use a few windows tweaks to speed up my latency, and alter the addons to lower my collect mail speed.

    So give it a go see if speeds your cycle up , nothing to lose apart from getting lost in Exodar.

    Good tip. The only reason I stay in Org is to make sure I don't miss any sweet deals in trade. Not that I'd miss them in Silvermoon, it would just be a pita to run back and forth.

    I do head out to Silvermoon for heavy afk crafting sessions though, the low lag really helps for banging out glyphs and whatnot!

    This is really server dependent. I could see this being true for high population servers, but SW is generally fine for me. I'll start using that mailbox trick, pretty cool.

    I used to use IF a lot until all the deals and 'dealers' seem to be in Stormwind so I moved there. It was a matter of convenience over speed as I'm afk for my mail collecting anyway.

    However I plan to move to Horde soon so I'll probably use Org as it's the only city that doesn't annoy me.

    I quit for 7 months, now I'm back. Hi...

    On my high level characters (40+, got mount) i use TB for the fast and easy access to Mail, AH and GB, meaning i don't have to dismount when running back and forth.

    UC would probably be even better due to also having a normal bank out in the open (or at least as far out as you get in an underground city :P), but since i mostly only use the bank when restocking my enchanting scrolls, which dismounts me anyway, i prefer the nice atmosphere of TB, and the close proximity to the forge.

    Now that i think about it tho, i probably should move my glyph poster to UC...

    Personally, i find the mailbox trick in SW is pretty useless unless you're involved in busy undercutting markets like glyphs. The amount of time it takes to manoeuvre into position to make it work is a pain, plus as soon as you need to visit the bank, you have to line it up all over again. On the ally side, Exodar is the place to be - nice and quiet, and on the Horde side, Undercity has has an auctioneer about 3 seconds from the mailbox and it's also very quiet. Just make sure you have your hearthstone set to Dalaran and if you need to get to SW or Org to make a deal in person, you can do so quickly.
