Now that people have driven Warbot Ignition Keys into the ground all for their sweet, sweet, 25g profit I've turned my attention to the more interesting thing that came up from the patch.
Some sellers, particularly in glyphs, may have noticed they were getting some strange sales. Even if there were countless glyphs cheaper than yours people would sometimes buy your higher priced one. Why?
Blizzard messed up their Auction House sorting with the patch and right now, contrary to what players have known for their entire WoW-lives, the auction house is sorting the most expensive items first. Now, this all goes out the window if you use Auctioneer or another AH addon but for those using the default UI they are seeing the most expensive items first.
Most players will then see an expensive item and shop around, go to the next page, and find the cheaper auctions. But not all of them.
After I noticed this strange sorting bug I changed the way I posted my glyphs. Currently on each faction I have a wall ten deep of each glyph for 500g. This ensures that my glyphs are at the top of the list and that 500g is all they see if they don't go scrolling or page-flipping.
In the meantime on another character I'm moving in with two of each glyph at my normal threshold/fallback. This way I'm selling to both the lazy buyers who buy the top of the list and to those who shop around and buy the cheaper selection.
I don't sell many at the high prices, I've probably sold about 45 glyphs this way. But 45 glyphs at 500g/glyph is a pretty substantial thing when you think about it and by selling at my normal settings on another character there's no missed revenue.
I'm sure eventually the masses will catch on to the sorting bug but until then I'll be happy to sell them 30g glyphs for 500g.
