We're all slaves! Slaves to the gold. Well, some are more than others, but if you think about, your power in this game has a limit, and that's not the limit of the gear stats, it's the gold you have. Let's take a look at this.

If you're a raider, you need several things to be at your top game: enchants, gems (epic ones), belt buckles, that extra BoE that helps you when the RNG doesn't allow to get upgrades. All these require gold, and lots of it. I see discussions all over the Internet all the time about this. Raiders need to be as good as they can, period. If you seem to be skint all the time, it's time for you to get some spare time and earn gold. It benefits you and your raidmates.

If you're a PvPer, the same principle applies. You need the best enchants and gems, thus you need lots of gold.

If you're bored, you may want to create a twink. Twinking a character requires lots of gold too.

I could go on all day with this, but my point is, gold is your limitation in anything you do, so why not take some time out of your "jumping around in Dalaran", or even your "farming herbs for selling at the AH", and actually doing something more. Jump to the next level, and try to be rich. "Well, that's easy for you to say", you might say. It's easy to say and to do. The AH is no rocket science. There's people like you there, trying to make a living. Join them!

How? The Internet is filled with information about how the AH works, and how people use it most of the times. What you have to do is taking advantage of some people's bad use of the AH. After you know those basic skills, it's just a matter of learning the right times to buy and sell, and you're set. Does it seem too hard? It isn't, that's a myth. Let's go into details, and perhaps I can even teach you something.

I mentioned that people use the AH in a wrong way previously. What I mean by this is that some people just dump their goods there and pray that they sell; they don't care about the price, all they care about is to undercut the competition. On a few cases, that's the way to go, but it often isn't. First, think about how popular the item is, and think about its probability of selling. By using common sense, you will probably find out that stuff like gems, enchants, metal, cloth, are the most popular. So, if these items sell all the time, why undercut? Every silver coin you're missing is money. Do you like to lose money? No, that's why you should not undercut in these cases. Post it a little higher than the cheapest one that is there. That one will sell, and then your item will be the first on the list. Try it and you'll see!

This is just the beginning of a neverending list of stuff you can do every day at the AH that will allow you to have no limits on this game. And does it feel nice to open the AH window and buy anything you feel like buying, just for the sake of it. Even stuff you don't really need.

I hope you find this little help useful. Make a comment below on how it works for you if you didn't know this yet!
