The auction house is a feature in World of Warcraft that allows players to buy and sell items with one another. It is a convenient way for players to obtain items that they need for their character, as well as earn gold by selling items that they no longer need.
To access the auction house, players must visit a major city and find the auctioneer NPC (non-player character). From there, players can browse the auction house and search for specific items or browse through the various categories to see what is available.
Players can list items for sale in the auction house by clicking on the “Sell” button and selecting the item they wish to sell. They can then set the starting bid and buyout price for the item, as well as the duration of the auction. The starting bid is the minimum amount of gold that a player must bid in order to participate in the auction, while the buyout price is the amount of gold that a player can pay to instantly purchase the item. If a player sets a buyout price, the auction will end as soon as someone purchases the item at that price. If there is no buyout price, the auction will run its full duration and the highest bidder at the end of the auction will win the item.
When an auction is created, a listing fee is charged to the seller. This fee is based on the starting bid and buyout price of the item, and is taken from the seller’s gold when the auction is created. If the item does not sell, the gold is not returned to the seller. If the item does sell, the gold from the winning bid is transferred to the seller’s account, minus the listing fee and a small cut for the auction house.
Keep track of interesting items
There are also several features in the auction house that allow players to find the items they are looking for more easily. Players can search for items by name or by using advanced filters such as item level, stats, and rarity. They can also set up alerts to notify them when specific items become available in the auction house. In addition to this, there are websites that tracks the price history for all the times so you can be sure to buy something for a fair price.
In summary, the auction house in World of Warcraft is a convenient way for players to buy and sell items with one another. It allows players to obtain the items they need for their character and earn gold by selling items they no longer need. Players can list items for sale by setting a starting bid and buyout price, and a listing fee is charged to the seller when the auction is created.
