Auction Taxes

Who else thinks that the auction tax is way too high? 10% of your selling price, really? Most of the games I played the taxes are 1% of the selling price. So what if youre selling a 100g worth item, you'll lose 10g? :/

I agree that the tax is way too high, imagine selling 10 slot bags, you want 40g but in fact you only get 36 ^^

There's a lot of things AK is doing wrong, unfortunately. This is one of the more annoying ones, even if gold becomes easier to make at higher lvls, I would expect crafting to be the major gold sink, not selling stuff via the Auction house.

Uhh, you pay for convenience.

There is a fully functioning CoD system for those of you who want to make the extra buck.

Given the relatively small storage space, along with high velocity of drops, the auction house essentially acts as a secondary bank and selling agent. You get a lot of bang for 10%.

In the longterm, you'll be glad for the 10% tax - it will prevent price floors from crashing. For commoditized items, you'll make more.

They really should lower it or people will not use them. And, chat window will be flooded with people trying to sell their items cuz they dont want to put it on auction. Lol

10% really is to high.

Say you put an item on AH for 100g.

That's 10g out of your pocket.

The item doesn't sell.

You just lost 10g for nothing.


It should be 1-3%, but not 10%, 10% is way to high.

If items don't sell, I think you should just get the tax back. If the item does sell, you don't get the tax back. Simple.

I think it's this way because it's super easy to farm gold at a higher level which we aren't even able to achieve yet.
