    I have no idea how to price these things!

    Hello, all. Over time, I have acquired a relatively large supply of rare items (mostly recipes), and I'm not entirely sure how much to sell them for. I'm on a medium-low population server. I forgot what else I was gonna say. So, here are a select few:









    etc.
    and some recipes (at least 200) such as:






    etc.
    And some 'mog stuff like and .

    I really don't know how much to sell them for. I'll bark in trade, forgetting that, and when someone asks how much, I just blank and switch chars... Any ideas?

    Sure, that's a good place to start

    But in reality, there's much more to consider. @Dreamwing mentioned server size, and there's also the question of whether his goal is to turn a short-term profit, or hold out for a long-term investment. A pricing strategy for such a high volume of rare, big ticket items will realistically involve quite a bit more thought than a simple wowuction global AH lookup

    I actually have some of those items. Being on a med/low pop realm kind of sucks sometimes because I have them posted around the global median, and it will sit there for weeks, until another person posts the same item, but this time for like 15k... So now it's not worth buying out, but if I undercut I could be missing out on potential tens of thousands.

    Visit TheUndermineJournal(TUJ) (EU link - US link) and look into the price history of the items you wish to put a pricetag on. This should help you quite a bit with selecting a price. If you have never used TUJ before, I would suggest you start using it now ;)

    Like has been mentioned above as well, when you mouse over the links you have placed in your original post, a price suggestion appears at the top of the tooltip. This comes from wowauction.com, which is also a good page to search for price statistics.

    Also, forgive me, but I had to laugh a bit at this part :P

    I think the biggest misconception is rare=someone wants them.

    I get about one or two big-ish sales per week on my high pop realm... goes down to one per month on my medium pop realm, which is the one I play on the most!

    It just takes that one rich guy to decide "Today, I learn all my recipes" for you to turn a massive profit.
    Doesn't happen much, but when it does... happy days.
