I don’t know what you mean the ah has never been slow all of bfa as far as I’m concerned. You’re basically complaining that people are on a bigger scale than you’re and making more gold.
The deposits are nothing no matter where you are, if you’re posting 100 or 10k. Also who do you think provides the majority of the auction house, it isn’t the casual player base, a huge margin of mog/materials/consumables etc. come from those people that play the auction house. I kind of wish they would’ve banned tsm temporarily just so the casual player base could’ve seen the affect it had on the auction house, everything would’ve sky rocketed in price because who would want to post any auctions when there was a 4+ second delay after 50 listings that and if you didn’t have the capability to post a lot of items at once the ah would shrink more than 50% I guarantee it.
