I was having a discussion with some of my SWTOR guildies about looting items during a farming run, which I found pretty interesting and helpful.
With the recent updates and changes to the economy, however, I am interested to hear about what you guys do now.
Personally I I pick up:
- All yellows ilvl62 or higher
- All yellow amulets and rings regardless of level
- All gems/tomes/potions, as long as it's within like 1 second of walking distance or so
- All ilvl61 or higher weapons
- All legendaries
- Gold within 1 second of walking, as long as it looks decent.
- While walking to my loot I'll scan any blues, but it's a super fast glance (maybe .5 seconds for everything).
Unless the other stats are good, I typically vendor:
- Any gloves without crit chance
- Any boots without run speed
- Anything less than 60AR
- Any helmet without a socket
- Any weapon under 900 DPS (lots exceptions with crit damage, LOH, and socketed weapons)
For my AH techniques, I typically:
- AH anything that I think is worth over 50k.
- Look up what other people are selling slightly inferior items for, and then price mine lower.
- Almost never do a straight-auction (no-buyout), because people are impatient and so am I.
- Sell many of a similar type at once. This makes price look-ups way faster. (i.e. selling 5 gloves at once, so I don't have to keep switching item types when looking up prices.)
- Anything I can't sell the first time get's priced reduced up to 50%. Exceptions are 5m+ valed items, in which case -20% max.
- Anything I know is good buy wont sell I RMAH for it's gold equivalent.
My biggest problem is that I save too much to sell and my stash is too full of things that wont sell. I need to rethink my "keep" rules.
How do you approach your farming? Do you pick up all the rares? Only rares above a certain ilevel? Do you bother with blues?
