Is there anything you can do about someone who just consistantly keeps undercutting me. Its the same guy every time.
I try to undercut him right back and we basically got a war going on. I tried !*#%%ing at him but he said, " if I want I'll make it so you never get a sale again."
Omg, this guy must have no life. Anything I put on ah, he go's out and puts same thing up for cheaper. And he must be on like 24/7. Is there anything I can do, besides trying to sell in trade chat?
Pretty sure i've been constantly crushing benbanks' gem market on the AH since i xferred horde

There's a few tricks you can use, let's say that this person is named "Freethejuice":
-Add freethejuice to your friends list, so you can know when they log on or off, and where they are.
-When you notice that freethejuice goes offline, OR if he's somewhere without an AH such as BWD or a battleground, that is your chance to undercut them.
-Focus Target freethejuice if you notice him near the AH, and put a skull over his head. Helps you keep track to know if they are checking/posting auctions, or if they are just afk.
-Only undercut by 1 copper. Even if you continue to be in an undercutting war, there's no sense in undercutting by any more.
-Use a decent AH addon. I recommend Auctionator.
Visit www.theunderminejournal.com and look up your competitor. It shows what auctions they have posted, times they are most active, etc.
Here is theunderminejournal for benbanks:
If you try and post your auctions during times that your competitor rarely is active on the AH, you will have more time with them being lowest priced.
lmao, guess Im not the only one fighting this war. I mean I dont even sell alot, I just want to make a few hundred gold a day or so.
But gets annoying when someone probably has more gold than they will ever need and doesnt leave the AH all day.
Thx for the tips.
It's nothing to worry about. The few guys that do undercut ALL the time usually only put 1 or 2 of that cut up on AH anyway and at only 1% undercut, which sell fast and then guess what!?! Yours are next! So your gems will still sell! mine do and i only check the AH once or twice a day.
Now the guys you should worry about are the retards that put 30 cuts of 1 gem up for 24hrs. Those all wont sell, so aim to always be under their posts.
The guys who undercut by 50%!(or any large amount) That's just dumb and ruins the value of the gems.
HINT: red gems like bold, brilliant, delicate ALWAYS SELL! so never complain about undercutting on those. Purple & orange moderately sell, and blue/yellow/green sometimes sell, so post quantity accordingly.
As for Glyphs... they rarely sell at all and all the undercutting is just stupid in that market /rawr
EDIT:: also don't bother wasting time or money battling someone else who has more time and money...

Just have fun with it. Every now and then I crash the Glyph market just to mess with the people who are looking for desperate people to buy them at 400g+. Ill put everything on for 25g or less then sit back and watch the same people undercut me, ROFL, its great. Then I look at it like this if they undercut me they took a huge loss from what they origianlly wanted and my product is still cheap and likely to sell and the comsumer got their purchase at a fair price not an inflated one. Let him undercut you, who cares ....as soon as his item sells yours should be next
