    Could I get banned for this?

    so, I want to make a sky golem, but there's a problem: my engineer/alchemist is a goblin, while my miner is a draenei. that's because I don't create characters based on how useful they would be. I create them as if they were characters for a book, or something like that.

    anyway, the materials for the sky golem are 2100 ghost iron bars (300 for the power sources and 1800 for the living steel)

    I've already mined them on the alliance side, and now I have to transfer them to the horde side.

    I thought about doing this through the goblin auction house, but I heard that selling large amounts of trade goods for low prices can get you banned for exploiting the economy.

    is it truth? could I be banned for that? was all the mining I did on the last days for nothing?

    Just do it. The only concern would be people trying to snipe your items.

    Greets,

    You can't trade items through different factions from the same accounts though, if you were planning on doing that atleast.
    For the rest, i don't think you can banned for doing that. But then again, might be wrong.

    If you can link the 2nd account to you somehow they wont but if you just have some random person buy the mats you can. You can open a ticket before hand and explain it to them and they wont. But you still need somebody you can trust to buy them since u cant bid on your own auctions
    Why read words when we can kill stuff the words tell us about?
    You have dreamed of death, you thought to escape it. Now, my little puppet, death is all you will ever know.
    NO ITEMS EEEVVVEEERRR!!!

    Just be careful how you do it, if you do them all at once you might get sniped by someone scanning the AH.

    No, you would not be banned for this.

    However, you also cannot buy your own auctions (Even if they are a different character) through the auction house any longer. So this still wouldn't work.

    You can do it legally,
    You may need a trusted friend or a second account. At least that's how cross faction auctions used to work for the same account, because I do not believe you can buy your own accounts auctions.
    Also, someone might swoop in and steal all your auctions if you do post em very low (I know I've scooped up some deals that way)

    yeah, I have a few IRL friends that can help me with that. I've already done cross-faction transfering of itens through the gobs before, but I've never done it with so many itens at once.

    Be aware of snipping bots.

    Just yesterday there was a CM who said it was still planned for 5.4 (but ofcourse, as always, there might be some last-minute bug preventing its release, although that's quite unlikely at this point). It's on MMO-Champion frontpage somewhere.

    Selling stuff at a low price won't get you banned per se, but I'm not too sure about trying to get something from Alliance to Horde (or other way around ofcourse).

    Even if you get banned by an automated process because it looks like you're a hacker selling items or something - you would be able to dispute it and get your acc back - but that's very unlikely. There's nothing illegal about transferring from horde to alliance through the neutral AH.

    I use 2 accounts to make item transfers between horde and alliance, which hasn't ever been considered bannable.
    Big thanks to Davillage for awesome signature

    It is perfectly acceptable, being commented on by blizzard previously when it went pear-shaped due to sniping or good timing.
    The risks are the only factor you need to be watching out for.
    The risk of someone else buying them, and the risk of the mount not making it to live.
    The chances of the mount making the patch are "looking good" as blizzard recently stated, but what it isn't is a certainty.

    105 stacks at once?

    I've seem some people complaining about being banned for buying or selling many stacks of cheap itens on their own faction's AH, even.

    I don't know if they were lying, or if I should be careful

    No you can't get banned, just be wary of people buying your stuff out before you can log into your Horde character.

    I'm kind of wary of posting on the blizzard forums.

    I once made a thread asking if the WoW races had armpit hair and it was deleted instantly, which makes me think the moderation over there is very strict. I wouldn't dare making a thread over there asking if I'll be banned or not lol

    since botting is legal im pretty sure what you want to do is 100% legit.

    Jsut so your aware, and im not sure if they changed it but you Cant AH buy yourself By this i mean

    On Your Draenei you place all your items in the Neutral AH
    Your Goblin will not be able to Buy your Draeneis Auction . Thats why people usually ask for someone to help them transfer gold cross factions.
