Thread: Arbitrage

    Arbitrage

    For those of us with gold on both sides and a way to transfer it, I'd love to see some kind of Arbitrage section on TUJ.

    Maybe with a list of like 10 things on each factions that would sell for much more on the opposite faction. I wouldn't think it would be too difficult to implement, but I could be wrong. Seems like since the data exists, some division would produce a %, assuming you did like (horde price)/(alliance price) the largest would be listed as things on the alliance to sell on horde, and the smallest would be things listed on horde to sell on alliance.

    The one that I am looking at right now is moving Vial of the Sands vendor parts and/or Chopper vendor parts from Horde to Alliance. With the goblin discount (and potentially the level 24 guild discount) you should be able to make 10-20% profit moving in that direction. I could really use some way to move the other direction, however.

    This sounds like a good idea. I don't know if Erorous does/would do a comparison for all items. It seems like there would be a bit of overhead to parse through a bunch of items to find the "top 10" profitable ones. Another way to do it, would be for the user to specify a list of items that they are be interested in moving cross-faction ( la Market Watch List) and then TUJ could comparse just those item for the user, and display the relevant information.

    And then, you could look at what people are scanning and make a top 10 list for the public... hehe.

    It could be some more overhead for sure, depending on how the info is stored, but it could also be as simple as 1 column of info. The scatter plots pull in the same info you'd need but they pull a ton more.

    Shouldn't be too difficult, and I had wanted to add some arbitrage functions once we covered all realms. I'll add it to my list.
