I have absolutely zero interest in maximizing my gold earned earned in this game. I can completely supply myself with everything I need, bar raid drop patterns, and only sell off items when my supply has grown too large. But when I do sell of items, I couldn't care less about how much I undercut other people. I just want my stuff sold, fast. Preferably I see a "buyer has been found" message before I log off. I've got roughly 660k gold (excluding any items) with nothing to spend it on. I couldn't care less if I could sell my items for more by buying out and relisting, or crafting it into goods.
Excluding mounts I wouldn't use anyway, there's nothing to spend gold on, so why should I care to maximize my gold income?
