Neutral Auction House: What Sells?

What Sells on The Neutral Auction House?

This is a very common question that I am routinely asked in emails.  "What should I sell on the Neutral Auction House?"  Basically you can sell anything that has a great difference in value on the other faction of your server.  It is usually in your best interests to transfer your items to a character on the other faction by using two WoW accounts.  Always be smart and quick when transferring items via the neutral auction house.  You don't wanna have your goods snatched up by someone waiting to steal under-priced goods.

Here are some lists detailing what some of the reliable sellers are on the neutral auction house.  You should start off your neutral auction house business with the vendor items that are not available to the other faction.  Since they can't buy them from a vendor they must either buy them from the neutral auction house or from a player that transferred them to the other faction server.

Sterling from the had already compiled a neutral auction house selling list so I am using his list here with some modifications.  Alliance only items are to be sold to the Horde and Horde only ones to the Alliance.  Some of the quests that awarded these items may be removed, but you can still grab some existing patterns to flip to the opposing faction.

Sinshroud of the Consortium also has a great post about the neutral auction house and sniping tactics that you would be well advised to also read.  Now get that shopping list in order and get to selling on the neutral auction houses of Azeroth in World of Warcraft!


  1. Westfall Stew has been BoP since 4.0.3.

  2. great post. thats actually what im doing now. i have a toon in alli farming a few things and making good money. If i need to send it over to other faction, since i dont have 2 accounts, my buddy sits with me, i post dirt cheap, he buys that same moment on the remote AH from his phone then he mails it to me or trades it to me. The same for money, i send him gold, then i post, he uses that to buy what i posted at ridiculous high price so no one else buys it :)
    thanks for everything cold, im working on my entry to the carnival and other blogs. You are the MAN!
