The partial region wide auction house is going to be mega abusable by those with the most gold. You heard it here first!— Kaychak (@kaychakeu) July 1, 2022

Terrible terrible change
Just means lower pop realms can't be held hostage by gatherers and crafters. Seems like a positive for everyone that isn't playing the auction house.
I am interested to see how this region wide commodity experiment plays out.I think an important point is not just that this change reduces incentive to have gathering professions (and makes it the domain of bots) but that those previous gatherers will also be pushed into making their limited profession slots into crafters.Cheaper mats combined with a lot more crafters is going to make an intense amount of competition, even on smaller realms.I hope prices are able to stabilize at a point where it is worth taking up professions and not just to where we are aiming to lose the least amount of money chasing profession locked items/perks.
Reading through r/woweconomy it seems people there mostly agree - this is bad for them but good for average players. So let's go already! And please extend this to all items, I'm sick of paying 3-5 times as much for legendaries just because one person is cornering the market on my dead server.
dust off the boxers ppl
This is a great change for average user! This only affects those who want to control markets.. the filthy rich people who dictate prices and of course also the botters who sell gold and also control the markets!The average user will have access to plenty and cheaper resources. Not to mention lot of previous expansion resources that was overpriced. I just hope they also include armor and weapons too!
Feels like a step towards region-wide auction houses honestly.
This is a good change, at its core. However, for someone who does use the AH frequently, I feel like it needs one small adjustment. Hopefully someone out there is listening.Items posted should be available only to the core realm group for one hour after posting. Only after that should they open to the pool. Otherwise, cancel-scanning will once again rule supreme, and those who abuse the system will see the most profit, on a much more narrow band. You will never again see Pallid Bones or Desolate Leather for 1g. They will be bought instantaneously by the suddenly-collaborative team of overly-obsessive number pushers.It'll result in much more stable prices, but any opportunity sales will go strictly to those who do things they shouldn't.So, again, if (like in-game mail) you put a time delay on the transition to cross-realm AH status, it at least continues to give the personal server group an opportunity to interact with the items before hand. This could also apply to cross-realm AH equipment and would do *wonderful* things to inhibit the power of cancel-scanning across the board.
I play on a high pop, I don't think the AH change will affect me all that much but I am afraid that other servers are gonna get shafted over badly. It'll probably even out eventually, but it's gonna be volatile as heck when they implement this and I don't envy goblins on lower pop servers. 50% excited 50% terrified
"Oh no we can't exploit low pop realm, wait we can't say it like that.... em we mean it is now less fun to play the auction house so it's a bad change" get a grip ffs, just because you lose your monopolys doesn't mean this is bad, for 99.99% of players this will be amazing at best and neutral at worst.
When they say "consumables", do they mean just things like potions and flasks, or also things like recipes, rep tokens, glyphs, etc? Cause, several thousand casts in and, I've STILL yet to fish up that friggen Polymorph Turtle tome... <.<:
Finally! A great change.Obviously, farming will still be profitable - by definition.It will be good for everyone - larger supply, larger demand, less price fluctiation.Hopefully this will be expanded to other items as well. Fair to everyone.
