Auction House Revamp in Patch 8.3

Recommended Posts


The Auction House will be entirely revamped in Patch 8.3. Stackable items are no longer bought or sold in stacks, copper's no longer displayed in the AH, but is used for calculations, the sell interface displays the current market for your item, so it's easy to set your sell price, and more!

In Visions of N’Zoth, we’re completely replacing the Auction House with a much-improved new Auction House system. Please read on for the changes coming to the Auction House, and then after you’ve tested it in the PTR, feel free to give us your feedback in this thread.


Commodities (stackable items) cannot be bid on, and are no longer bought or sold in stacks. Now, you’ll enter in the number of a commodity that you’d like to buy and the AH will automatically select the cheapest available and give you a total price.

Copper is no longer displayed in the auction house, but is used for calculations behind the scenes.


The sell interface now displays the current market for your item, so you can easily know what to set your asking price at. For weapons and armor that vary in item level, the AH now shows auctions of all the item levels for easy price comparison. Additionally, there’s no longer any need to undercut by small amounts. Auctions at the same price point are sold last in, first out. As long as you match the current lowest price, yours will sell first.

The Auctions tab now shows you where your listings currently stand in the market. Within each price point, you can see the sell priority of your lots among your competitors’ lots.


The AH search function has learned some new tricks:

  • You can now search “Uncollected Only” to find items that have a collection UI associated with them:
    • Weapon/armor appearances
    • Mounts
    • Battle Pets
    • Toys
    • Recipes
  • You can now use advanced search operators, including exact match ( “iron ore“ ), exclusion ( -iron ), and OR ( iron | truesilver ).
  • There is now an “Upgrades Only” search, which finds upgrades for your class and active specialization. This is based on item level and number of sockets.
    • For casters, two-handed weapons are compared to one-handed weapons and off-hands by using the weighted average item level of the one-handed setup.

Playing Favorites

Your favorites list now appears immediately when you open the auction house and when you press the Favorites button. Favorites are saved separately for each character.

Work in Progress

We have a few areas where we’re still working on implementation issues. These are coming soon in a future build of the Visions of N’Zoth PTR:

  • Auction house mail for sold, expired, and won auctions are consolidated to a single mail if they are of the same item and price.
  • Currently in the PTR, favorites are shared among all characters and will reset when you exit the game.
  • Localization work is underway, and currently, searching only works in English.

Thank you very much for testing with us on the PTR!

      Torghast is proving to be quite the source for a lot of fun in WoW, as players get various crazy anima power combinations, from the boss one-shots to infinite DH eyebeams, and one of my personal favorites, the low-gravity jump with which you can kite bosses around even as a melee (so your Impending Victory cooldown comes back and you can survive and hit the boss a few more times). We're checking out a few more of the Torghast week 1 fun and games!
      We'll start off with one image that completely accurately and perfectly summarizes what Torghast makes us feel:
      Warlocks get to have their own raid boss as a pet, with the Voidwalker not only having high amounts of HP, but also topping the DPS charts!

      Here's one that I've actually experienced myself, and is awesome (but also made me appreciate the normal Fury rotation more):
      The no cooldown powers are really fun, and there's plenty to be done with them, as this Vengeance DH resorts to more basic strategies:
      Demon Hunters have long been made fun of for having a simple rotation with few abilities, and this... doesn't help the stereotype:
      And some players have very different goals when it comes to Torghast and Shadowlands in general:
      Then there's the  one-shots. Here's one using the Catharstick power:
      Then a few more Runecloth Wrappings kill, although this one might be from this week:

      And finally, the weirdest one, as a player has somehow managed to reach floor 7? Unfortunately no details are provided, and it might be something as simple as a photoshop, but it doesn't seem like it:

      We hope week 2 brings even more madness and fun our way!

      SimulationCraft has just updated their site with prelimiary pre-raid DPS sims. Check them out to see how your class performs in a simulated Patchwerk raid encounter in Patch 9.0.2!
      DISCLAIMER: Note that the simulations are a work in progress and not all profiles are created equal. For example, not every class is using a Legendary or proper Conduit rank. SimulationCraft is open source and you can contribute to make it better!
      The pre-raid simulation includes Legendaries for most classes*, and it assumes that all players are at Item Level 184 during a Patchwerk-style (nuke boss) encounter.

      *Not all sim profiles have Legendaries. All Warlock specs and Windwalker Monks to be precise.

      A player has spent 5 million gold in life to purchase Mighty Caravan Brutosaur and become the most convenient NPC while AFK in the afterlife!
      Only Engineers have access to an Auction House in Oribos, so Bearded_Bear96 decided to take things into their own hands and bought Mighty Caravan Brutosaur when the mount was still available in BfA. Whenever the player goes AFK, they park the mount that comes with an Auctioneer conveniently near the mailbox.

      Many players are thankful for the service because they do not need to go to Orgrimmar/Stormwind to purchase and put items in the Auction House. In the end, this is not about just one individual! Kudos to every player that stands near a mailbox on their brutosaur mount in Oribos when they go AFK!
