[A] Cloth

33 Human Priest
I'm just here to cry. And maybe pout and whine a little. Why... why why why! Why do people on this server list everything (especially cloth) in stacks of ONE??? I've played on three other servers and never seen it to this extent. I want to buy wool but I have to flip through 40+ auctions of windwool - and as far as I know there is no way to filter that to just get regular wool!

Don't they know that people who are buying cloth almost never want one piece?
It SEEMS like the way to make the most profit would be to list 3-5 listings single for those rare people who want to buy one and then list the rest as stacks of 5, 10, or 20. I vote for 20!

I never complain about AH prices. Free market so whatever you can sell it for is the right price. But I just don't get this method of clogging the listings with stacks of 1.

Can anyone tell me WHY? Please? I might not cry every time I see it if I can at least comfort myself with a good reason.

Well thats easy to answer..

You are a member of the Alliance and your feeble gnomes can not carry more than one at a time to the auctioneer.

Pretty sure hitting the auction house's "rarity" filter will reverse the order for cloth stacks so you see the larger stacks first. I think, anyway.

As for why people list a whole bunch of cloth one at a time, I'd just file it under "greedy bastid".

You can also use an addon such as 'auctionator' to purchase those singles as stacks instead, makes it much quicker and easier to sort by lowest price.

People list in 20/15/10/5 because it looks prettier, but they post in 1's if they don't have a 5 stack, so thats where most of it comes from
