I find it interesting that you do not get all of your gold
in one shot when pulling from the trading post. If you have so many
items coming in that they can't all fit on the screen, then gold will
also be withheld until you start emptying your trading post. My theory
is that you can only have a certain number of sales waiting to be picked
up at a time, or they count as individual items like anything else.
Regardless, it's a good problem to have!
Today I made 7 gold after posting auctions for an hour. I had won so many yesterday that it took 4 gold in investments just to pay for the listing fees. So to only make back 7 gold in the next hour seems pretty crappy huh?
What if I told you that tomorrow I'll likely wake up to another 25+ gold? Is the time worth the effort? Absolutely! And I only spent about an hour the night before posting buy orders. So two hours of effort total. But here's the real question: are you willing to put that kind of time in?
The point of today's post is to bring up two things: consistency and experience. If you want to get good at something, then you must be willing to consistently put effort into building up your experience with the subject at hand. In addition to these two things, you need to be able to stop yourself and say "Hey, maybe there is a better way to do this."
If you're struggling, keep your chin up and try to learn from your experiences. But most importantly, don't give up and don't cancel auctions unless they run for over a week. I made 7 gold in an hour and the rest will likely sell before 24 hours later. If I cancel now and relist then I cut my profits each time!
