    Absurd Deposit Amount for Posting some mats

    I was just posting some Anchor weed.

    Deposit price was absurd.

    I took it down to 1 stack of 1 just to see. 90g deposit ?

    I've noticed this for a few other mats.

    What gives?

    It is to limit the stacks of 1's that people kept putting up. It should stay the same no matter how large the stack is and you get it returned when your items sell.

    Don't be that garbage that post one at a time...

    But it will disappear with the next patch bringing the new ah update. Selling one by one will be pointless.

    thanks.

    I rem trying to post stacks and deposit went up linearly. must have done something wrong.

    you are correct... stay at 90g regardless of stack

    Some older mats also have ridiculous deposit fees that are clearly unintended.

    The thing is that some players would list literally hundreds of single items in order to manipulate the AH by creating a "wall" of items that people would have to get through in order to access the useful stack sizes. When this behaviour was combined with the way addons scan the AH, it had brought the AH to a grinding halt making it almost impossible to use.

    The deposit fee for trade mats is, if I recall, 20% of the per-unit posting price. If you post 1 item for 200g, you get a fee of 40g. However, if you post a stack of 200 of that item for 200g, you still get a fee of 40g.

    So, yea. First, determine the optimal stack size to sell for. The MINIMUM amount of Anchor Weed you need for, well, anything is 3 Anchor Weed, for transmuting some herbs into Expulsiom. The next stack size is 5, for 1 flask, or for 1 mill. Thus, the most efficient stack size for Anchor Weed is 15 - Ppl wanting it for transmute wants it, and ppl wanting flasks wants it.

    So yea. Get with the program, and stop posting things in stack sizes of 1 when you need multitudes at the minimum to do anything with.

    And thank goodness.
    You get the deposit back when the items sell, so when it's an actual item that you have to sell by units because they don't sell otherwise, like gems, scrolls and such (most people will buy one or two at a time), you get the gold back.

    Yeah. I recall it was adamantite bars, or some other outland trade goods. A half stack had a 200g deposit fee or so, and a full stack even more. The fee was so ridiculous that it wasn't even profitable to sell them. I recall a smaller stack had significantly lower percentage being applied to it.

    And so instead of fixing the system they just decided to punish the players.. 15 years of this shitty auction house and all they do is punish players by removing the mobile app and then this stupid deposit bullshit.

    Sounds like they fixed the system, but you don’t like how they fixed it.

    Some people are just never happy.

    It fixes the AH in every conceivable way that players have been giving feedback.

    I think that was always a band-aid, the full 8.3 revamp should do a better job.

    Except it didnt change anything at all. All it did was disincentivize behavior. The base UI is still horrible. It doesnt condense information like auctionator does. It just lists every single auction page after page. It doesnt allow you to buy part of a stack or see what the price is when you put it up for sale. Just to name a few.
    @Queen of HamstersHow does increasing deposit costs fix every complaint people have?

    Don't worry, the 1s were merely replaced by pages of stacks of 10

    Already better. I don't trade in bulk; I usually buy a stack or two at most, so stacks of 10 are just right.

    Wait, wait, I saw a thing on this

    Former Banshee Loyalist: Thank you. I'd like to sell these twenty anchorweed. Indiviually.

    Auctioneer Ralinza: You want to... okay. We're gonna have a little talk about auction house etiquette.

    AH will be improved in 8.3 so those problems will disappear. I suspect the whole stacking thing to be gone by then
