World of Warcraft Remote Auction House
I recently added the World of Warcraft Remote (or Web Based) Auction House subscription to my battle.net account. I must say that I have to retract my original statement that the web based auction house is garbage. That statement was made back during the early days of the Beta version of the remote auction house. Blizzard has updated the armory for Cataclysm and this update included a major improvement in the performance of the remote auction house.
Gone are the super long waits loading different characters or changing auction houses. The ability to swap to different characters to gather gold and post auctions is so vastly improved that I am glad I added this feature to my account. It is now worth the extra $2.99 a month to me. It is so much smoother and easier to use than the original release that we all got to try for free for a couple weeks during the Beta. Prices haven't seemed to been changing to crazy prices erratically as they were back in the early days when the code was buggy.
I really like the ability to just log onto different characters and allow them to post to either the normal or the neutral auction house. Makes it much easier to buy something on the Horde auction house and then immediately flip it onto the neutral auction house without having to gather mail, send it to the character in Booty Bay, log out, log in the seller, then repost to the correct auction house. It is much simpler and a ton faster to post it with the remote auction house application. It is a bonus not alerting my competition when I log in and they notice me on their friends list. Stealth posting isn't a bad thing.
Have you tried out the new version of the Remote or Mobile Auction House yet? What is your favorite use for it?
