@Trido Undercutting by significant amounts on commodity goods only serves to permanently ruin their value. The amount of customers for commodities is stable, the amount of goods they will buy is stable, and the only way to change that equation is to sell at a massive discount which combined with a lack of overheads (in the minds of most vendors) will result in a race to the bottom.In real life, anyone who does this will go out of business. In WoW, no-one who engages in this senseless market destruction goes out of business because they place no value on their game time and consequently have no overheads and any sale they make they consider to be profit. In real life, this behaviour is simply not possible - by not buying from the people who undercut by tiny amounts, you are supporting the selfish people who do not understand the basics of economics and want their money right this very second and consider any sale at all to be a success.I, on the other hand, place a high value on my time and have better things to do than be flying around Sholazar for 2 hours picking flowers to sell - if I don't sell it at a reasonable price, it is a waste of time I could be spending on other things, like seeing a movie, or spending time with friends... or actually playing WoW instead of grinding.
