CRITICAL: You can buy BOA legendaries in AH(1)Category: GeneralFebruary-25-2014 10:30 PM PST (4 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
2/26/14 - Hotfixed already. Players cannot list BoA items on the AH, but the ones that have been listed prior to the hotfix are still up there. Don't try to buy them.

________________________________________________

Legendary items obtained in Patch 2.0.1 onward are supposed to be BOA, but players are still able to list them on the AH.

This is what happens when you attempt to buy something:

You can click to buy and you will successfully buy the item, however, you cannot send it to your stash (assuming this is because the item is BoA and you cannot obtain it on your account).

Note: Yes, yes, I know the item is BoA. I attempted to buy it to see if the transaction could go through... and it did. First of all, BoA legendaries shouldn't be able to be put up for sale in the first place. Second of all... okay, there really is no second of all, it should have stopped right when someone tries to list a BoA item.

Let me jump in really quickly on this. :)

The ability to list Bind on Account items on the auction house was not intended and most certainly a bug. Early this morning, we implemented a hotfix which now instructs the auction house to reject all Bind on Account items, including those that currently have a 2-hour (or less) trade timer active.

Here’s some additional info:

  • As a result of this hotfix, players who attempt to list an account-bound item on the auction house will now receive an error ("[Item Name] Auction Failed (32105)") as soon as they hit the "Create Auction" button and the item will be returned to the player’s stash or inventory unchanged. Since deposits are only taken on a successful sale and not for simply posting an auction, players won’t lose any gold or real money for attempting to list account-bound items.


  • Account-bound items that are currently listed on the auction house will not be taken down. Instead, we’re letting those auctions sell or expire naturally.


  • As we speak, we’re looking at making any account-bound item that’s been sold on the auction house BoA for the player that purchased it. This would apply retroactively. Our desire is to avoid taking anything away from players if possible, but still ensure that our goals for items in patch 2.0.1 are being met. This particular solution seems to be best of both worlds.


We'll be sure to keep you all updated on any further changes, should they come through. Thanks for your reports!

When can we expect to get the item we bought ?
1 bil down the drain for me so far.


We don't have an ETA for when we'll be able to get those items delivered. Right now, we're investigating whether or not this issue can be resolved via hotfix (preferred) or if it will require a quick client-side patch. Once we can determine that, we'll have a better timeframe to share.

Rest assured, though, we're committed to delivering those items to you, and we actually know that we can deliver them*. It's just a matter of when and through what method (hotfix or patch) at this point.

*We have the technology.

It's the CRAFTED legendaries that is still up in the air. What is the stand on this? As we speak, more are posted on the AH. Biggest culprit is of course, Griswold's Masterpiece.


We actually hotfixed crafted Legendary items last night, so they should no longer be able to be posted to the auction house.

And where is the crafting hotfix for amuletts?


That issue cannot be addressed via hotfix. It will need a client-side patch to address (which we're working on).
