Many goblin auctioneers have been aware of The Undermine Journal for a few months now. The site scans and compiles auction house data from the remote auction house on many different servers. Users then can search the data for current and historical values of items, and even determine the AH activity of their competitors. This has been useful to determine market trends, ideal times to post and ideal times to buy.
Now, the Undermine Journal has released a new tool that will alert users via e-mail or RSS feed when an item is available on the AH at a certain price. Wow. This system, combined with the ability to buy items from nearly anywhere through using the remote auction house, will make cheap materials or rare items last for an even shorter period of time.
Without having to constantly look at many different markets of interest and simply waiting for an alert, gold for those hardcore auction house junkies will be even easier to come by. I still haven’t subscribed to a single month of the remote auction house service, but this automated out-of-game alert system could make me take the plunge. Anyone else see the huge potential of this service?

Fallen Earth is receiving a double dose of goodness today. Not only is the game progressing to v1.5, but the much awaited, unbelievably awesome, and incredibly low-priced mobile application for Fallen Earth is now live.
Icarus Studios is charging a paltry $1.99 for access to its mobile application on Droid/iPhone and $2.99 for the upcoming Blackberry release. And unlike some companies that charge an arm and a leg for simple (and frustrating) auction house access, Fallen Earth’s mobile app does far more:
Check in-game mail
Interact with clan members and online friends
Visit the auction house to browse bids and keep tabs on auctions
View available crafting recipes and check progress on those active
Examine character profiles and equipped gear
Access the world map
Check out the video preview of the mobile application above. Prepare to be flabbergasted.
Shut your mouth, you’ll get flies.
There’s three reason why a Fallen Earther wouldn’t want the mobile application:
They don’t have one of the many smartphones that are going to be supported.
$1.99 isn’t $0, which was originally expected.
This kind of connectedness may cause you to lose your job/spouse/home/kids/etc.
There was something about a patch I was supposed to cover right? Some untitled, relatively small patch that adds fast travel, a new Blood Sport mode and additional technology. I don’t mean to belittle patch v1.5, but this mobile app…This thing right here, is freaking awesome.
If this technology ever fell into Blizzard’s hands, it’d be the next Google Pac-Man (just wasted another 20 minutes).
As we’d mentioned previously (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=22748781945), certain features of the Remote Auction House will be premium-based. Once the beta test is complete and the Remote Auction House is live, players will be able to subscribe to a new service called World of Warcraft Remote (http://us.wowarmory.com/wow-remote.xml), which will allow them to buy items; post items for sale from a character’s bags, bank, or mailbox; collect gold from their bids and auctions; and more. During the beta test, players can try out these features for free, and each World of Warcraft account will be able to perform up to 25 transactions per day. (Please note this limit will be increased at launch.)
The list of realms eligible to participate in the beta test is displayed below. If your realm is not on this list, please check again soon, as we plan to eventually open the beta test to all realms.
Update 5/20 – The supported list of realms has been updated to include the Bloodlust and Cyclone battle groups. Continue Reading
