As an armchair economist, I've wanted to study the market in WoW. I've even thought about putting together a commodities index, and doing some forecast modeling. [I'm a data geek, sorry].But to play the AH, seriously, hasn't really appealed to me. Gold, in game, is not a motivating factor for me. But... I may have to rethink that.It might make for a good way to spend 30 minutes every morning as a diversion from life....

The fun in the AH is not in the crafting, posting, and undercutting.It's when you open your mailbox, tell your mailbox addon to open and collect all your mail, and your addon signals to you that you have collected 2k gold.I spend too much time raiding and pvp'ing to really dominate the market on my server, and at this point profit margins are generally really low (because of end of xpac, and because I don't have a scribe for glyphmas, doh!). But I've got a large chunk of G saved, up, 5 alts at level 80, i've got about 25k per level-capped character. And while I wasn't able to rake in the booty for glyphmas, I did make a cool 10k on cut gems and enchants the week of 4.01.Opening your mailbox to a few thousand gold is where the reward is, and reinforces you to keep playing the AH. Plus, you may have some down days where nothing sells and you have to eat deposits, but overall, you usually end up on the positive side of the balance sheet if you post wisely.
