World of Warcraft gets a reworked auction house
The World of Warcraft Auction House will have some changes in Update 9.2.7. According to Blizzard, the feature will be regional for products once the update rolls out.
“Auction houses across all kingdoms in a given region will now share commodity lists: gems, herbs, flasks, consumables, etc..”, the developers wrote. “Non-commodity items like armor and weapons will continue to be realm-specific.”
This new system is currently being tested in the World of Warcraft Public Test Area. As it stands, each of the servers will have its own economy. That said, players will see massive price swings between the busiest servers and those with a much smaller population. This means prices are going to be much higher in smaller kingdoms because there aren’t as many players crafting and farming and much less demand.
Following the region-wide implementation, World of Warcraft players who are relatively struggling with the prices of pots, herbs, flasks, and other consumables will find this new feature very useful.
“The auction house you know and use today should look exactly the same,the devs reassured fans. “There will simply be many more buyers and sellers available to you for commodities.”
The changes are still in their testing phase. That said, the developers of World of Warcraft want fans to join the public testing realm to try them out. “We’d love for players to hop on the PTR, copy their characters, and help us test the Auction House across the PTR region“, they added.”We could schedule a specific time in a few weeks for everyone to come up at the same time to help stress him out.
There will also be a new chat channel for ad boosts. Players usually flood the game’s already existing trade channel with advertisements for boosts for raids and dungeons. Basically, it’s become pretty unusable for anything else, especially for the busiest servers. With the new channel, World of Warcraft players can actually use the trade channel for what it’s intended for: buying and selling stuff.
