Since I feel like I am part of the process of procurring said auction items...

1) Why are we bidding GOLD? What will this gold then be used for? I thought we were going to bid DKP.

2) Why is the bid secret? This defeats the purpose of an auction.

This seems like it is going to favor whoever has the most gold. And gold is not all that precious of a commodity, unlike DKP.

not DKP because we would like anyone in the guild to take part and it is a very small part of the guild that takes part in our 25 man runs. there it is limited numbers on who would be able to bid on stuff if its only dkp. Plus most of our members of the 25 man won't really need these stuff imo.

Remember buying these items via secret auction are to be used by the bidder or one of his toons AND NOT for RE-SALE on the AH.



Also the secret bid is a way to make it more simple system and has a finality of the bids... it is also one of the systems used for bidding on items in a raid with dkp. ((And also a system i have seen used in raids back in bc for Off-spec items, where members who wanted it for off-spec where to whisper the RL an off spec gold bid on the item. and the gold goes towards the guild. ))

so do we have to bid with cod or do we put what we bid and if we win we do the transaction in person?

Hi Wolfe,

I believe that the transaction will be done in person. Aurisa may have other ideas...

Daargo,

As Mirtas mentioned, one big factor was that we wanted the auctions to be open to all members of the guild. Thus after much discussion we finally settled on gold.

The use for that gold is not fully determined. Additional bank tabs are certainly an option. Since we don't know how much gold that will end up being, and the guild doesn't currently have a lot of gold, I think it's too soon to think about that.

A final note - this process could change. If we feel after the first few auctions that there are people abusing the system or if we don't like the way it's going then changes are a possibility.
