Him: /2 WTS 4x Frozen Orb.
I usually buy these out 20g and under and flip to Eternal Fire and sell for 30-35g per. AH had the Orbs at 26g at the time. So instead of offering him an amount...
Me: How much would you take for all 4?
Me: I will give you 75g for all 4.
Score. I just got 4 for less than I usually buy them out. Big deal, right? Now I continued to explore him.
Me: Do have any other good deals?
Him: I have stacks of Borean Leather and 1 Arctic Fur.
Me: How much for your stacks of Borean Leather?
Him: 5g per stack. 50g for the Fur.
5 per stack is super low, these stay over 12-14g per stack, almost always on the AH.
Me: I'll take all your stacks of Borean for 5g each.
So he sold me 9 stacks of Borean for 5g each and tossed in a stack of 18 Borean Leathers as a "bonus" as he called it.
So thinking ahead, I explored it a little further.
Me: So are you a skinner?
Him: Sure am!
Me: Nice, are you going to be selling anymore skins? If so I will continue to pay for 5g per stack, and you can COD them too me anytime, any amount and I will buy same day or next.
Him: Sweet! Sounds good. I'm going to go farm some more right now. I can probably get you 50 or so stacks today and I will Send them to you tonight.
Me: Sounds great.
Him: Added you to friends and will send them tonight. Thank you Very Much!
Me: Thank you too!
Can't wait to see if he becomes a reliable source.
Lesson Learned? Don't just get your good deal and move on. With a little exploration, you just might find even better deals or, better yet, you may find yourself a low priced supplier. Just remember to be courteous, polite, and fair.
