I may be considered part of the problem on this. On my server, there are a couple of people who routinely put golden spellthread on the AH for 550g buyout. I've tried a 500g buyout before and it didn't sell, same with 450, but 420 nearly always does, so that's my price point. Subtract the low-end AH prices for primal life and primal nether, and I'm making about 100g profit, which really is enough for me, for a pattern I bought at a vendor, even if I do have to be aldor exalted.If they don't like it they can buy my spellthread at my prices and try to sell it at theirs. I just don't like having my gold tied up in commodities waiting for some poor shmuck to spend far too much on their spellthread.

I think your last sentence here is the key. I can't tell you how much money I have made by playing the players. if i see the "king" of our auction house has the lowest price on something I have a lot of, I undercut him by about 20%. That is the price point where I KNOW it will sell because HE is going to buy it to relist.I just did this with Runed Living Rubies last Tuesday. He had about 20 of them listed at 70. I had been stocking up throughout the week and proceeded to post a dozen of them at 55 each. I then got on an alt and whispered him that somebody had flooded the auction house and undercut him. Two minutes later I had 660 gold in my inbox and he had 12 new Runed Living Rubies in his bank. I got my money now, he gets an extra 180 if he sells them all this week, which he will, and everyone wins. Except the poor saps paying 70 gold for a Runed Living Ruby. But I guess that's what you get when you have one guy on the server with 600K gold spread over 4 toons. He gets to make the pricing rules.
