Askajedi’s Momus has written a very interesting article about his take on the MMO auction house system, and what we should and could expect in SWTOR. World of Warcraft has pretty much set the standards how the auction house system works and we should expect it to be very similar when it launches. Momus also brings up the value of credits and how it differs from the gold/silver/copper from WoW and gives a few pointers in this area. He is back in World of Warcraft at the moment to hone his auction skills and he has some good tips to people who wants to be prepared to be one of the first SWTOR tycoons.

For me, personally, I had a very hard time playing the acution house game in World of Warcraft and it wasn’t until the last expansion that I really got around to mastering it (6 years, golf clap). Although, the inflation made it easier and the fact that Blizzard pretty much threw money on you just for loging in. But I still remember the first year, I hardly managed to get over 100g. I wasn’t one of those that played 24/7, on the contrary, it took me close to 6 months to get to lvl 60. Hopefully this won’t be the case when SWTOR hits. I must have snapped up something over the 6 years I played World of Warcraft
