Huge World of Warcraft Auction House bug fix will take “2-3 days”

A groundbreaking bug in the World of Warcraft Auction House is preventing players from buying or selling items in the MMORPG Blizzard. The game breaking issue has caused problems for many players who reported losing hundreds of thousands of in-game gold when the auction house automatically bought multiples of items, or vice versa , they cannot purchase items despite the auction house reporting that there are thousands available for sale.

World of Warcraft community manager Kaivax responded to several forum posts asking for help, acknowledging the issue. “We are aware of a bug that blocks some items in invalid lists,” says Kaivax, “It is a priority for us to fix, however, we expect the fix to take 2-3 days to complete. We will let you know as soon as the fix is ​​released.

Responses to the thread were a mix of relief that the issue was publicly acknowledged and despair that nothing was said about it for nearly four days, with the first issues emerging earlier this week. Some fans are also asking if Blizzard will do anything to address the damage that has been inflicted on the game’s economy and progression systems over the past week.

“The economy is going to take weeks to recover,” a forum poster claims, pointing out that “tons of people have been scammed out of a ton of gold and conversely a lot of other people have won a ton of unearned gold.” Additionally, some players note that they weren’t able to progress in certain in-game activities because they weren’t able to purchase items needed for more difficult content, such as consumables. or items required for legendary crafting.

Some players are requesting that the Auction House be temporarily closed until the fix is ​​implemented. “I think buyers would rather use the trade chat to find consumables than buy a missive and end up spending thousands of gold,” says one player.

World of Warcraft patch 9.2.7 introduced the Auction House to the WoW Companion app for the first time, allowing players to buy and sell items on their mobile devices. Some players have speculated that this implementation may have led to the introduction of the bugs – however, without official confirmation from Blizzard, we cannot say for sure what caused it. Either way, if you’ve recently thought about trading at an auction house in Azeroth, we highly recommend waiting until the hotfix arrives.
