First Mate Hat

I found this on my auction house two days ago for 1000g.  I figured that was a reasonable price so I went ahead and purchased it.  I am trying to flip it for 5k at the moment.  So far I haven't had any luck, but I'm pretty confident I'll be able to sell at that price to the right person.  

I have already had the standard whispers about the price and how stupid I am for putting it that high.  I simply reply with how it is an extremely rare hat and that it IS worth the price.  I'm done with them at that point.  If they are not interested in buying the item then I am not interested in arguing about prices.  

How do you handle people who feel your prices are too high?  Do you respond to mail/whispers, or just let them continue on in their ignorance?  


  1. I ask them how much gold they have. Then they tell me they have something like 200 to 800g. Then I tell them I have over a 100k. Then they shutup. I do that when I'm in a bad mood and I don't want to deal with them.

    If I'm in a good mood it's normally a item I sell all the time and I will tell them I have sold X amount at that price and ask why am I dumb again? They usual response is..."wow, people are dumb to pay that much. Good for you though."

    So whatever. Those that are ignorant and want to flame are broke and we're not because we're smart enough to figure this all out. We decided one day we we're fed up with being broke and did something about it.

  2. Agree with Naked Jay, i play with people some idiots when I'm feeling ornery, but when i get a real low balling moron (like offering me 500g for a chopper) I just ignore them.
