Three improvements I would like to see in the AH.1) Search by attribute. For example, I would like to search for all mail armor with intellect.2) A visual way to filter out profession recipes I already know - which would be handy for alchemists and enchanters. The way things you cant use show up in red, things you already know how to use show up in blue. Or they way you can search by character level, search recipes by skill level.3) A neutral auctioneer in at least one of the major cities. Prior to TBC, going to the Booty Bay or Gadget AH would turn a nice green item or gem for a good price (it was like shopping at Target!). Now post TBC, all that's left is Green Hills pages, Savory Deviate Delights and folks posting grays at 200g to send money to their cross faction alts.On thing that has been both a blessing and a curse is Auctioneer. Auctioneer places the buy out and starting bid prices so close together - there's almost no point in bidding on items. We also have a couple of players on my server that use Bottom Scan to play the market by buying low and selling high (Scootertheif on Uldum, yes I'm talking about you), and its funny because they are like the day traders of WoW and you always parked at the AH. I can see the machinema parody of Boiler Room now.From a tech standpoint I think system wide AH linking would be a disaster. Think about it, 8 million players that’s a lot of AH transactions. It would take forever to do searches Bliz would have to have dedicated servers just to handle AH transactions, and imagine the slow down if all those people did AH scans with Auctioneer?
