"There is a point where the costs (mostly in "your time") become too great to make putting things on the Auction House. Advertising in trade chat "LFW" can take a minimum of your time, and zero resource (gold) costs/risks. Your profit margin is great."I don't see how sitting in town playing in the chat channel takes less more time than simply throwing stuff up on the AH and getting back to the daily chores. My add-ons can list a thousand auctions in less time than it takes me fat-finger a single "LFW" message, any one of which will probably earn me more gold than the tip I'd have to wring out of someone who's already too cheap to buy from the AH. Barking in the chat channel just doesn't scale up - trying to sell a hundred gems to hundred customers one at a time would take half the day, but selling those same gems on the AH takes just a few minutes - and probably at a much higher markup.
