I love your post but I hate them at the same time. There are a few things that you have pointed out over time that I have missed but you are passing out all my secrets to everyone else. I have seen a few new major competitors on the AH and it drives me nuts because I know they are getting there strategies from you.

There's an entire ecosystem of blogs and forums out there- I can't be held responsible for doing much other than interesting people in this part of the game.

Yeah you can. Don't sell yourself short, man, this site 100 times the readers that those various gold making blogs do.For example, I have toons on 5 different servers, only one of which had someone selling single Iceblade Arrows at thw time of that article. Once that article dropped, there were half a dozen people trying it on EACH server.WoW.com's impact is far more profound than you realize. Not that I'm complaining, though, I love AH competition as much as you do, but the previous poster's comment is completely valid.

Perseverance is your friend. The people who are competing with you now won't be there for long. I have noticed this on my server. People see these articles and suddenly I have competition where it was mild or nonexistent before. But like all get rich quick schemes, they don't last. No economy can support getting rich suddenly without careful effort. Once they aren't getting as rich as they like instantly, they will pull up their stake, sell their inventory cheap, and disappear once more to do dailies or farm or whatever they enjoy more than playing the AH.

Agree with the commenters. I have seen a noticeable influx of competition since this column started. Coincidence? Hardly, but I'm not concerned at all. The new sellers burst into the market all gung-ho expecting their enthusiasm and bravado to carry the day. It may take a few days or weeks for them to discover that it's not all fun and games. Eventually, they'll hit the wall when their more experienced and seasoned competitors stomp them, using many of the tactics you see in this column. As Basil said, it wouldn't be fun without the competition. I have so much gold, it's just stupid, but I keep on selling because it's fun.
