Selling auctions on the Neutral auction houses (the ones operated by goblins and accessible by both factions) has always been looked at as taboo. Learn how you can make gold off the neutral auction house today!
Neutral Auction House Locations:
What Items Sell the Best in the Neutral Auction House?
- Green Hills of Stranglethorn Quest Items
- Armor/Weapons for levels 35-45 (Tanaris and Stranglethorn levels)
- Enchanting Dusts/Shards for leveling the profession.
- Pets the opposite faction cannot normally aquire.
When selling in the neutral auction houses you have to remember to keep your audience in mind. What level characters will be viewing my items and how much gold will they have? What will those characters be looking for? What items will sell well enough that I will actually make more gold than a normal auction house?
The Green Hills of Stranglethorn quest items are a no brainer. Players visiting their mail box in Stranglethorn will be two inches from an auction house and will most likely take a look to see if any green hills are for sale. That is an easy way to get your items to sell and people expect these items to be on the neutral auction house.
Armor and particularly weapons can be dreadful items to put on the neutral auction house. However, some blues are worth putting up, just be sure to put them up during prime time (4pm -midnight).
It is always worth it to place a few enchanting mats on the auction house, especially since they will not cost you anything to post.
Pets for the opposite faction are the #1 gold maker at the neutral auction house. Post during prime time and put up items like the brown snake from ogrimmar or the cockroach from undercity. People looking for the pet achievement will buy these up for reasonable prices and they don't cost much to post.
As you can see it doesn't hurt to have a lowbie toon in booty bay or another neutral auction house for the sole purpose of posting a few items each week. If you currently are using an alt in winterspring for mining thorium then it is no big deal to have that toon post your items for the neutral auction house.
