Jul 22nd 2010 3:16AM I don't agree at all the undercutting ruins the market. As someone who has been working in the glyph market for awhile now undercutting is just part of the game. The thing is to not be obnoxious about how much you undercut by.
I've found on my server there are about 2 or 3 major players in the glyph market and a handful of smaller players. We undercut and get undercut numerous times each day (5 or 6 or even more) on hundeds of auction at a time. The trick to undercutting (and keeping a healthy market) is to undercut by a very small amount. In the glyph market I undercut by 73c. The thing you want is to be on the top of the list (lowest price). If I'm 73c lower then people will by mine.
If I keep the undercut amount small (and so do my competitors) then the market value drop happens at a much slower rate. all of us in the glyph market are in it to make money and it's in out best interest to keep the prices at a higher (but reasonable) level all around.
That said even in the "regular" market I undercut by only 1s. No reason to go higher than that. The normal person searching the auction house only cares which item it at the top (cheapest) not how much cheaper it is.
Jul 22nd 2010 3:05AM to show how many times you have sold an item in the tooltip for Auctioneer go to Autioneer's config menu then select "Tooltip" on the right. Scroll down and select the check box for "Enable Sales Stats" and "Show sales stats in tooltip". You can then select what ever sub-things you want displayed.
I use this for helping me know which of my glyphs have and haven't been selling and which are the most popular. If i've been posting glyphs over and over for a week and still haven't sold any I know that it may be a unpopular glyph and stop bothering to try and sell it (at least for now).
Hope that that helps. Also as stated above Beancounter will show unsuccessful auctions but having it successful auction stats right in the tooltip works best for me.
