I missed it in the beta, How does the auction house actually work? Are all items posted auction style with bidding? is there an option to just sell at a set price? can you do a bidding/set price option like ebay? How does the incrementing work? how long are the timeframes for auctioning? are they adjustable? Can you see who you are bidding against?
Is there a way to set the listings from low to high (buy price)?
From what I saw in the open beta it seems like the most expensive items are listed first and so on. Then you can set to search for a certain price or under. (Ex. 2h swords 100g or lower). The problem with that is you have no idea what the cheapest prices are listed under, so I had to guess, and check. A bit time consuming. (at first I was like "woah" i'm going to have to spend 10k to get a voodoo doll? then I saw others priced for 100)
It would be nice if you could type in a weapon name or item class, set the rarity, and then select an option to list them in order from cheapest to most expensive instead of having to dig out the bargains.
I know every item is slightly different, but I played another MMORPG where everyone could list their item for whatever price in the system, and then it would display them in order from low to high. There wasn't any "bids", just set prices. To tell how much something was worth you would just look at who was selling the item you wanted to sell, and then you just undercut them a little. Made it very easy to tell what every item was worth, and it was hard to "scam" people. ^ Another great feature about this game is that instead of having a set number of listings, you had a set number of items you could sell in your shop. The items displayed in your shop were displayed on the market/AH, and when someone wanted to buy an item they would click on the listing, and then would be teleported to your shop to purchase the item. It was neat :)
