Today's JC daily was A Present For Lila on Arygos. Dutifully I went to post my 10 stacks of Nightstone (I post 10 stacks at a time and post more after they've been sold or undercut). Much to my chagrin, I found this
All in all, Mr. C posted 20 sets of Nightstone, 3 each for that price, 115g. When he (she?) posted, she simply undercut the lowest priced Nightstone (of which there was one for 36g. So what is the problem? Well obviously his wares moved, and moved quickly. If that was his goal, then he succeeded.
EXCEPT: Dailies provide us with a great opportunity to gouge people at the AH. Listing gems, at 69% of the going rate is not gouging anyone. By taking a little more time, and scoping the scene out for an extra two minutes, he could have easily listed those Nightstones for at least 180g per stack of 3. His initial set up cost him over 1.3k gold.
Remember, being the first one in for the day sets the standard, to make the most money, aim high and if you have to post more low. Don't be this guy.
