* You can create auctions from items in your bags.

* You can relist expired auctions.

But you can’t take items from the mail into your inventory bags in order to create auctions. They have to be in your bags already.

* You can only post 200 auctions a day.

* You can use the neutral auction house instantly, no need to fly to BB/Gadgetzan/Everlook.

* You can bid on and buy items on the Auction House, but remember you can’t take them from mail to inventory/ bags in order to sell them. Day trading is out of the question.

* You have to search manually. A good idea is to set up The Undermine Journal to email you if a snatch list item is seen. Log on to WoW Remote in response. Set your smart phone to loud and new email from the undermine journal will wake you if its at night.

Sidenote: use a tuj-only email account unless you want to be woken a lot. I get a lot of email queries about wow gold making, and I’m not getting up at 3am to answer them with a nursing matron yelling I’ve woken the entire ward.

Using WoW Remote

First, being nice tidy (and greedy) gold gamers, pick up the gold you’ve made. Choose your 1st character from bottom right hand side char selection. On the main screen, choose Auction House. Go to My Auctions, and tap Auctions Sold and Claim Gold. If your connection via smartphone is good (mine is crap), repeat this on all chars before making and decisions about relisting expired auctions or creating new ones from items in your bags.

Expired Auctions have an option to “relist”, but do not endlessly tap this, because it will auto undercut.  If there are no other auctions to undercut it will fall back to vendor price. I accidentally sold a rich purple shirt for a pittance, but probably cheered up the buyer a struggling gold gamer from my realm.

Active Auctions is just a list of, you guessed it, current items waiting for a loving new home.

You can also browse everyone else’s auctions from WoW Remote / Armory app, but I would only indulge in this if I had finished my 200 sales per day and was seriously bored 🙂 I haven’t got that bored yet, I’m keeping my fingers busy handwriting you guides like this instead.

Tell me about your experiences with WoW Remote.
Easy? Clunky? Nice for cross-faction trading? Pain in the royal backside?

    At this point I don’t use the remote feature for selling anything (except cross faction). I use it to buy wildly fluctuating low level crafting mats whenever they happen to be posted (my different kinds of cloth and righteous orbs, specifically). I really hate the interface (just on the computer, don’t get me started on the phone!) so anything where I need to buy out more than 5-6 items is out of the question. I added single click buyout to my auctioneer years ago for a reason!. Double click buying out (especially given the very sluggish nature of the website) is completely out of the question for any major purchase.

      I’d like to add that the Remote AH has some of the same stupid drawbacks as the blizzard default auction ui. It wants to sort by bid? Really? Buyout per item should be the default for everything in the game with the OPTION to look at bid. IT also, although it does sort by buyout per item, shows the prices as the bulk price and not a per item price. Tres annoying.

      I also wouldn’t recommend collecting your gold out of game. That hides those transactions from all of your in-game addons! And collecting happy sales data is the most fun part of being a goblin.

    I love using remote AH! I collect my gold and buy mats that I short on while I am away and find out about a deal. I use it to make sure I am the lowest price, and if I am not I can cancel and re-post in a instant without having to run back to the computer. Also the remote guild chat makes boring train rides more entertaining =)

    I am I guessing that the EU version is different, because I can post items from other sources than my bags.

    To comment on what you said “You can bid on and buy items on the Auction House, but remember you can’t take them from mail to inventory/ bags in order to sell them”

    If you win an item or even have an item mailed to you in game. you can access these to sell with out actually collecting your mail in game. When you go to create an auction it shows you all your items – mail, bags, even the bank!

    That’s false. you can take items from your mail into the AH. I used to use this to flip items on the AH when i was at school.
