Rather than buying out ALL of a item, buy out enough so that it's not profitable any more.For example, on Enchanting scrolls it's easy.There's generally 30-50 abyss crystals from 20-40 gold on the AH. I buy them all up to 40g (Generally have an average unit cost of ~28g) and leave the rest, because over 40g is way overpriced.Then I make a few enchant scrolls: Berserking, Black Magic, Powerful Stats, Staff - Greater Spellpower to use some of them up.I then sell them with a clear pricing strategy.For example,Generally people list Berserking for 550-600g which is fairly expensive.I now list Berserking for 450g, it cost me roughly 360 to make so it's a reasonable profit.Then I re-list my remaining abyss crystals at 39g. The great thing here is:-If people buy the mats for Berserking it costs them over 450g, my buyout price for the scroll, which means 2 things: 1) My scroll sells faster because it looks like a great deal. 2) Nobody can undercut me by buying mats from the AH.If people buy the crystals I'm still making money.Of course the crystals get undercut fairly quickly, but the price stays artificially high for at least the evening.I just wait for the market to go back down and start again. I don't even lose money on AH deposits for the crystals which don't sell.Fun stuff.
