I have been reading your site for the past 3 weeks and already made shitloads of gold using your tactics etc.
I also watched ur insciption market crush by adding glyhs from %50 price to let other sellers buy.
I have a similar approach on gem selling and would want to share it with others.
It's mostly common sense with a bit of foxy twist.
You know cutting by 1s or even 1g will get u cut in a minute or 2 by same amount.
If theres a cutting war, I just made a tactic which generally works...
For this towork, you need to be online and watch your auction.
Lets say i'm selling insightful earthsiege diamond for 50g and someone cut me for 49.99, then i cut for 49.98, etc, etc.
I also added most of my competitors on my friends list so i can c where they r and at AH or not.
Lets say 50g is the %100 pct of this gem. If theres a cut war going on, i decrease the cut range to 30g from 50g. This is uqual to %55 - %60 pct. i stop and wait him to list his gems from %55 pct and i buy them all out. which means i will be able to sell them for %100 later on when hes not on, later on sometime, PROFIT. Of course he might not list any at all due to you cutting him so high... but we will get to that later.
When i do this, if person is clever, he stops posting(if hes not just keep buying his %55 pct gems for profit while his stocks get dry LOL) and logs off or just stop posting and wait my gems to sell out so he can list his for higher prices. But this also enables him not checking the insightful eartsiege market as often as if we had a cutting war going. After 5 to 10 mins, i put in a few more insightful gems from 48g and generally he doesnt check that market for 30 mins orso and i delete the gem that i put in for 30g,making me sell my gems from 48g for no competition. I play in a horde populated realm and in peak times like nights, you can really sell shitloads of gems in 30 minutes.
Of course this will not work if the other seller checks the market every 5 mins meaning he's stubborn but generally it works.
It's just common sensewith a twist.
It would be awesome if you can post this strategy:)
Nice detailed way to deal with undercutters Sahjhan! If the player being undercut was smart he/she would ignore your 50% undercut and just let demand take care of getting rid of it. However, this person is most likely running with an addon like quick auctions 3 and therefore will undercut your 50% auctions. Keep owning the undercutters Sahjhan!
