The Auction houses in Warcraft can be a daunting area for new players in Warcraft. For a start there is often a scrum in front of the auctioneer, hand’s waving, characters jumping about, running in and out. But take a deep breath and let’s talk you through the process quickly and simply. You’ll be making good deals and lots of Warcraft Gold in no time.
In this guide, we will assume you are selling for the first time, my follow up guide will be for the process of buying.
First what are your requirements. If it’s weapons or armour then you need to scan the market for suitable items. Assuming no addons. then the first thing to do is right click on the auctioneer. The standard auction house graphic user interface (G.U.I) will open.
If you want to avoid embarrassing and costly errors the first thing to do is to tick the “usable items” box at the top centre of the auction G.U.I. This will mean that you will only be shown items your character is the right level and has the correct skills to use. The only risk here is you will be shown items at any level below your own including those that – although you could use them – are far too weak to be a worthwhile investment. So the next thing is to select the level range.
There are two boxes. These are the “to” and “from” level range Buy wow gold requirements you want to focus on. So (for example) if you are level 20 type “20” in the right hand box. If you want all items up to level 20 leave the the left hand box empty. If you want only level 20 items put “20” in the left hand box as well.
I find it useful to have a range of one or two levels to look at. So at level 20 I might put 19 in the left box and 20 in the right. This would return results of all items usable by my character that have a level 19 or 20 requirement. Likewise putting 16 in the left box would give all items from levels 16, 17,18,19 and 20.
OK next select the item type you are interested in in the drop boxes to the left. Weapon is top of the list, Armour second etc. Clicking weapons will show the list of all weapon types available. Clicking on one of these will return a list of all items that meet the criteria you have set above within that item type. If nothing comes up, there is a good chance you are looking at an item type you do not have the skills to use (remember you ticked the “usable items” button)
Assuming you get a list of items they will be shown in the main area to the right of the list. Moving your mouse pointer over these items will give you information. The icon of the item will give you a tooltip giving you the stats for it, The colour of the item text gives the general quality. Pressing the labels at the top of the list will sort by that criteria. So for example pressing “lvl” will sort by the items by the level requirement – starting with the highest level first. Repressing will sort the list in the reverse order.
