Marking Your Competition (Literally)
|"I have the perpetrator in sight."|
If you're are experienced auctioneer you already know to put frequent undercutters on your friends list. This is taking that idea a step further.
I type "/tar abc" where 'abc' is the first three letters of their name. (If /tar doesn't target them try the city's other AH area.) Once I have them targeted I place a raid marker on them. (Right click their target frame to access raid markers if you don't have them keybound.) I usually use the condom...I mean 'circle' as I find it easiest to track. This allows me to easily see their comings and goings.
|"He's making his move."|
Since raid markers can be seen from a ridiculous distance I can see them walk to the mailbox. To the Auctioneers etc.
Along with friends list online/offline notifications these marks can help you know when they are heading to the AH to undercut you. This allows you to go after they've left the AH and re-undercut them.
Another thing I have found to make tracking competition easily is the SLDataText addon. It places a simple little bit of plain text on your UI.
|Location. Location. Location.|
When moused over it displays a bunch of important information about your friends (or "friends" in this case) including where they currently are (no AH in TB!), if they are away (when the cat's away!), etc.
I mouse over it often while auctioning to keep an eye on who's doing what were. You can never have too much information.
While today's tips may seem a bit 'stalker-ish' just remember that all is fair in love and war.
- What is your favorite surveillance technique for your competition?
- What AH PVP tricks do you commonly employ?
- What addons make tracking your competition easier?
