WoW Remote Auction House

Taking first looks at the beta Remote Auction House I have to say that I am impressed. The web based front end is speedy, as quick as in game for searches and postings. It allows you to post items not only in your inventory but also from your bank or mailbox.

I tried out the iPhone app which was very slow to use. Going back and forth between searching and posting items took a while. I am going to assume this was because of speed limitations at 3G. I would expect this app would become worth while when 4G speeds become available.

When this goes from live to beta the free version will allow browsing of the auction house, existing auctions, successful auctions, and viewing of inventory. The paid version, for $2.99, will allow creating auctions, bidding, buyouts, collecting gold from mail, and cancelling of auctions.

I am considering whether or not it would be worth it for me to pay the extra $2.99 a month. I think this would be a great tool to use while I'm at work but I would still be limited since I can't craft items that I need to sell. I would need to plan ahead with all of my supplies and have everything crafted in stock piles, which I do to an extent now. Regardless I think the free services will still be great to use at work so I can check on my gold making at all times.

What do you think about the new service? Post your comments and let us know!

Thanks for checking in!

One think I would like to point out with the remote auction house it the easy access to posting on the Neutral Auction house without having to run to contested territory. This will speed up transactions between factions for sure and may be able to be utilized for more BLINGING!!!
