Something fishy with Homuculus on AH

39 auctions for Homunculus with 19 or 20 seconds off ZD, 20 of which are listed with 1d1h remaining, and no BiN.

They all have different stats so they can't all be dupes.

It is strange, maybe a lot of people saw the light of day on the fact that they couldn't get high DPS with the build.

It's not fishy. That's all one big seller unloading them, and doing an exceptionally poor job at hiding it.

It's not a coincidence they were all listed within 5 minutes of each other and every one of them has no buyout.

Someone is just cashing out, that's all.

This it's probably zunibarb since I think I heard something about him buying up as many homunculus's as possible at one time to flush the market dry of them and then try to pull a profit from selling them all.

However, I think that plan kinda backfired once dev's commented on the legendary update in the future. He's probably just trying to dump them all fast and not lose much money from it.

I sold my homunculus the day of the announcement, can't wait til an ilvl 63 one shows up, I'll get rid of my trash bear spec and go back to dogs :).

That said, I was extremely down on bears in a previous post, my current spec is the least painful of all I've tried for MP10 farming. Still nowhere near as good as dogs.

Someone was playing monopoly with them. Then the property tax card came up.

Sitting at 1.5 hours let on those auctions and I'm surprised how high all the bids have went. I have to believe there aren't 20 0-dog WDs driving up all these bids, but more likely 2-3 flippers trying to make some profit.

There's already 19 reductions for 120m buyout, I'm guessing none of these sell higher than 100. And in a week when these flippers get burned, they'll be even cheaper :)

Edit: Looks like I underestimated the 0dog craze. These guys are paying huge premiums for a few extra points of average damage. I wish I had some 0dog to scalp to these wackos, I could make some serious gold off of them.

Another edit: 15 of the 20 sold immediately went back up on the AH or RMAH. I watched most of the auctions expire (without bidding, that would have just been stupid), and most of the 19's sold for >120m, some as high as 160m. In the financial world we call this a "fallilng knife".

Sheet, Zero Dog players with 50-75k sheet dps can't be happy with those numbers.

im at 84k dps now and I out DPS my 200k dps bear if play right.

0 Dog looks crappy on paper but kick the !@#$ out of most WD on Bear builds

230% weapon DPS x4 dogs every 0.5 sec. i like that better then finding a wall to put my self against for Bears to be effective. ( witch is next to impossible in most zones as its all open fields)

not to mention zero dog is soo much better when you play with a full team ( unless every one has a shiity computer)

Not all 0dogs are in that vicinity. Most I've seen are 80-100k dps.
