    Share your never-to-be-repeated AH mistakes

    I always find these kind of threads helpful and thought I would start one here after making a really stupid / noobish mistake a few minutes ago.


    I was doing a realtime snatch list search and saw a [Formula: Enchant Weapon - Healing Power] pop up for 73g on the AH. I decided to do a quick background check first and searched for that item on the ah, saw 5 up for around the 70-100g mark (mostly from diff sellers).

    Even though this formula is supposed to sell for thousands there were at least 8 of them up on the ah (some of them in the thousands) so I thought it wouldn't be worth buying.
    I then thought, hmm it's not too expensive and it's a nice heirloom enchant that I haven't learned. Did a quick scroll search and didn't find any healing power scrolls up (yeah it's not the best sp heirloom enchant, but only by 1 sp point).

    Went and checked the prices of the mats and they were dirt cheap (literally like 20-30g per scroll to make). Went and stupidly started buying all the mats, went back to get the formula and they all gone except for the very very expensive ones.

    DOH!


    Anyways, share your mistakes that you have recently made so that others can learn from them

    I didn't buy the mats to make Abyssal bags when they were super cheap. Now the mats have tripled in price and I have to go farm them myself

    Mail at inbox + right mouse click = level 1 bank alt learning a Black Tabby bought at 1k gold and had planned to sell in Cata.

    Had wanted to move the pet to another alt for storage. Well, when I buy another Black Tabby I cannot use it again. Now to make a 6k Razzashi Hatchling mistake.

    I've been tiptoeing around these things in my inventory. Hoping never to make this mistake. *fingers crossed*

    Store them in a special "beware" guild tab and you can be extra careful when you move them around.

    I always worry that one day when I right click items to deposit them into my guild bank (I don't use a bagspace/bank addon and some tabs I don't bother neatly organizing) that I might accidentally learn / use it. And yes I have a Razzashi Hatchling on my level 70 warrior alt *grumble*.

    Great stories though, keep them coming!

    Yeah, I wish that learning the pets had a cast time. I've saved myself from learning a few recipes inadvertently thanks to that 1.5 sec.

    I did the pet thing with a chopper! I thought I had the auction window open and right clicked thinking I would put it up for bid but instead added it to my mount list. At least I got an achievement out of it

    Keeping my fingers cross that my 20k+ buying spree on AH dumps would not be a dud. Items I have bough is pretty spread out; enchants, cloth, metal/stone (for my alt's blacksmith power leveling), no longer available pets from the last 3 expansions. The gold blogs gods have been kind in putting all the info together. Between work and family, I could at best read but not research...at work!

    I traded with a chinese farmer, who sold me 10 Primordial Saronites for 500g/each, when they were hovering around 1000g, a few months back.

    In my rush to get them onto the auction house, I set up my QuickAuctions to post them, and off they went to the AH. Since this was a highly competitive market, I wanted to keep up with the constant undercuts. Next thing I know, I'm in a cancel/re-post undercut cycle.

    I'm not sure who wised up, but someone posted a single Saronite at 300g, roughly 30% of market price. My addon, proceeded to post at 299g... and he snatched up ALL my Saronites, 200g below what I paid, and 700g below market price.

    Thresholds.... are your friend.
