Most items on the AH (Armor/Weapons, Glyphs, Enchants, etc.) are all luxuries. They are things your class doesn't necessarily 'need' to play your class. You are able to obtain your base gear via quests/dungeons. Gems, Glyphs, and Enchants are all bonuses to your base level abilities/gear but do not disrupt your gameplay if they aren't present.We can argue that prices on certain things aren't justified but at the end of the day all of these thing aren't hard requirements to play the game. Many real-world luxuries get high markup due to their brand or demographics, in WoW the same applies. If certain skills/attributes feel more relevant to players or certain class populations are larger within the game demographics, the prices for their class/skills will reflect that.At this point you can't really set a price too high unless you really go nuts, it'll still only work if the demand is there. The problem I see with the zergish undercutting is that it goes too far and the most of the auctioneers lose respect for the item. If you undercut simply to be the lowest price it'll never end and you'll end up supplying those on the top end with really cheap items.Create a certain item standard for yourself and try not to break it. If a certain market shifts a lot in a new direction, create and maintain a new standard in a way that works for you. If you don't have a bit of patience you'll just keep burning your assets and end up getting little in return. Deposits are just the cost of doing business.
