Someone irked me by innocently undercutting me; obviously using an addon to post at 1% below the price I was posting. They're not doing anything wrong, but I was annoyed because I expected no one else to sell that item.
Since I don't expect more than one buyer every week or two, and I hate advertising in trade chat (Which I will wind up doing as well), the last person to post is going to have the cheapest price and probably make the sale. This made it obviously vital I look him up at undermine to see when he likes to post.
Worse luck; even though he posts rarely, his times seem totally random, so that was no help.
But I took a look at what he was selling and saw "Arcanite mechanical whelpling" for a price that's obscene compared to the mat cost.
Will people actually buy mechanical whelplings? They've been nerfed so far into oblivion, and can be used so rarely, and take up a trinket slot. They're really only useful for a few lvls before you take them off in disgust.
I know few people have the Arcanite one because the recipe was such a pain to get, (especially when the cap was 70, the monsters were 66-68 elites, and I was a squishy) but I have it.
I want to rise above interfering with his market just to spite him, but if they sell, I could profit even if I undercut him by 50%.
Has anyone made a profit selling whelplings and teleporters to leveling engineers? And how fast were your sales?
I've avoided those markets, because I wouldn't have purchased those things for the markup I want to charge, but not everyone plays like I do.
The more I look at engineering, the more I suspect that the best way to make alot of money is off of other engineers that have more money than sense.
