So went to dump my stockpile of toughened flesh on the AH as it wasn't worth the time fishing to make the goblin BBQs - none was up there so I figured 50g a stack might be appealing to some potential engineer or raid leader.

Inadvertently set it for 50g a piece instead and when I went to dump more on today discovered that for some inexplicable reason people had the TF set at 45-50g each with options ranging from one to several pieces and there I was, king of the morons with four stacks offered at 1k buy out. >_<

I'm sure a number of players who'd either vendored, scrapped or cooked their own TF must have looked at those prices and been kicking themselves for having wasted so much of such a valuable commodity and with an easy dozen different peeps having put their TF up, I can just imagine what kind of run and farming frenzy I might have caused.

It all worked out in the end though as I reposted all of mine at the "reasonable" price of just 10g each and am now nearly a grand richer.

Moral of the story - just because someone is posting something useless/common on the AH for obscene prices and he's the only one posting doesn't mean that he knows something you don't.

I love auctioneer's percentage of market value showing on all items. In general, I don't farm and I buy a lot, including TF. The percentages help me keep from making an accidental buy of something that is offered at an obseen price. I routinely see people offering stacks at incredible prices. I can only think that they are trying to trick someone who may accidentally buy it, or trying to manipulate the average price.

Mostly what I see while perusing the AH is people posting 100 Volatiles. One. At. A. Time. Same thing with the new dust for enchanting, herbs, ore... doesn't matter. Even leather scraps. I think some people shouldn't be allowed to use AH add-ons.

Preach on brother, god I hate wading through 23 pages of singles when I need stacks.

It is incredibly annoying when people do that, but that's why Auctionator is such an awesome add on. On the buy tab when you search for an item, instead of listing every item by itself like Auctioneer does, it lists all the items that are of the same stack size and stack price together. So if some goober posts 100 volatiles at one per stack, you'll see all those in one line and can buy them by just clicking on the button "Buy another." It used to let you type in the amount you wanted to buy and click the button once, not sure why they changed that.

Blizzard changed the addon API so that every action like that now requires an action on the part of the user. Thus, if you want to buy one item, you need to make one click.

Click on the quantity column and sort by quantity from highest to lowest - problem solved.

Or use Auctionator for its Buy/Sell interface - it accumulates identical auctions into a single line item. E.g.:

3g 20s 0c 125 stacks of 1
3g 35s 1c 23 stacks of 5
3g 50s 0c 1 stack of 20 (yours)

Might have to look into that addon, and i dont like sorting by Auctioneer is becuase The cheapest ones are always singles and auctioneer likes to mix the prices al together instead of low to high which is how i ussually search

Yup, that's why I mentioned Auctionator two posts above you. :-p
