After my recent diary bragging how clever I was in terms of World Of Warcraft Trading....


I didn't read the changes after the latest upgrade, and established major positions in certain items, so I could resell them at vastly inflated prices.

I didn't notice that Blizzard had VASTLY increased drop rate of said items, causing anonimouses planned price fixing to fall very flat as new product hit the auctions.

Cost of above : over 300g
Lesson learned: priceless

So, you're a scalper? by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Jun 11, 2007 at 10:12:33 AM EST
Correction; a failed scalper?

I bet he made that amount many times over in his career thus far, this is just a minor setback. Things like these are bound to happen, especialy since the tweaks to drop rates are usually not advertised.

Just ask anyone who had perfect black diamonds in the bank before the 1.10 patch.

everything anonimouse posts just oozes with the thrall of a rare and distinguished intellect.

I'm pretty sure that's not how you spell "anonymous"...

I prefer to say I am a market trader.

Huh. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #8 Tue Jun 12, 2007 at 07:48:31 PM EST
That's what the guys, who crush the bubbles of the variant figure packages and walk out of the shop, say.
