Nev from Auction House Addict has created a community project for the gold makers among us 20 Days of Gold Making. You can find a list of all of the participants in this blog post at AH addict. The question I am covering today is:
What was your biggest ‘oops’ moment?
My biggest ‘oops’ is an easy one. Back in Cataclysm I was selling Lil Timmy’s White Kitten. After bumping into Lil Timmy unplanned. I had tried selling it Alliance side for 500g for a few weeks without any luck and then via the neutral auction house for a few more weeks, using the remote AH. After so much activity and being teh only seller I decided to hold back for a week or so. After a while I decided to go get some cats of the Crazy Cat Lady outside Stormwind and had forgotten that I had the White Kitten and promptly put it up for sale along with the much more common cats which were selling for 50g.
However I only found this out because a fellow gold maker on my server had spotted this as an obvious mistake and had not only bought it but also mailed it me CoD for 100g, which I duly paid up as I was so relieved not to have missed out on a bigger profit.
Since that time I have started using Trade Skill Master and have the cats on auto pricing and therefore the mistake won’t happen again, assuming my rules are set up correctly of course.
