Drama on the AH
After the most recent patch, the recipe of Savory Deviate Delight seems to drop far more often. I picked up two while questing in the Northern Barrens. I learned one and checked out the auction house prices. I wanted my second one to sell, but being a chef myself, I didn’t want to sell the recipe at a huge price. I finally stuck it up there as a buyout price for 400g.
A few hours later, a player named Martika whispered me with a “wth?”
Martika: Why would you only charge 400g for the recipe?
Me: Why not?
Martika: It’s a highly sought after very rare drop
Me: So? I’m not someone who gouges other players on the AH. And it’s not rare anymore. I got two of them yesterday. Why do you care?
Martika: Because I have one to sell and idiots like you drive the fair price down. and it’s not fucking GOUGING when you price things appropriately. Go take a class on free economics. And we both know you didn’t get 2 drops in one day. You’ve impressed no one.
Me: Your butthurt is astounding.
After that, she ignored me. So just to let all of you guys know, if you sell something rare for cheap, there are economic majors that’ll come after you.
