Blizzard will offer select WoW Auction House items across the region in the next patch

Blizzard Entertainment Updates World of Warcraft‘s Auction House, making certain items available in all regions, instead of being locked to players’ individual servers. Through wow, auction house prices varied from server to server. But in patch 9.2.7, auction houses will share prices regionally for items considered “commodities”, according to a recent development update from Blizzard.

Basic items in World of Warcraft include gems, food, flasks, herbs, and other consumables. Items like these will be available for purchase across the region, with prices being standardized across all servers. This change could potentially alleviate issues on some low population servers where players are more likely to encounter price gouging on consumable items.

More unique and harder-to-find items, such as weapons and armor, will continue to be limited to server-specific prices, according to Blizzard. “The auction house you know and use today should look exactly the same; there will simply be many more buyers and sellers available to you for commodities,” Blizzard said in its update.

Blizzard also noted that a new, separate version of the in-game trade chat channel will be added in patch 9.2.7. This new version, called “Trade (Services)”, should be used specifically by players selling services, rather than goods. Players participating in the sale of Dungeon Runs, Raid Assist, and PvP Transports should navigate to this upcoming channel to sell their skills. Players who sell in-game goods will still be allowed to do so in the current version of trade chat.

wowThe regional auction house update is currently available for testing on the game’s public test area and will be implemented when patch 9.2.7 goes live.
