As promised in our alert post late last night, we are informing at this time that the issues affecting the auction house and in-game mail system appear to be resolved with the deployment of patch 3.1.
For your trading safety, we ran several tests on several servers to confirm that everything is working as expected. Testing conducted included:
–We placed items in the auction houses of both factions, and then had other WoWenomics team members immediately purchase them. In 30 out of 30 total tests there were no unexpected delays in receiving our payments.
–We crafted various blacksmithing, tailoring, and leatherworking items. All items were crafted with the correct ration of materials used to items crafted. No errors.
–We performed several different types of enchantments: vellum enchants, trade window enchants, and self-enchants and, here again, the correct charges for materials were incurred and the expected results observed.
–Transmutes, smelts and other cool down-based skills performed as expected and resulted in the regular activation of the cool down timer.
–Finally, we mailed items and gold between toons and noted no issues or unexpected delays. Testing included mailing of items, gold, gold + items, empty (message only) and COD items. No errors reported.
We did notice, and are also receiving many alerts of, a few undocumented minor changes and observations related to patch 3.1 that were not reported elsewhere and will be posting these observations later today. We encourage you to check back in later if you’re curious as to our initial post-3.1 findings.
One small note to our friends on the EU servers. As today is patch day for you, we anticipate that you may have some of the same issues that the US experienced yesterday post-patch. We advise you to do the same things we advised in yesterday’s alert post (with, perhaps, a bit less anxiety).
For everyone else, unless we find any new issues, at this point you are hereby cleared by WoWenomics to resume trading. Happy hunting folks!
