Alternate method to calculate market price of items with variations
There is a LOT of possible variation on current content boe now.
If I'm not mistaken you calculate the market price for each item variation. In a result you have some items with very, very low data.
It creates situations where :
Cruel hope crusher item level 710 = 17.6k region market
Cruel hope crusher item level 710+Heroic = 41.9k region market
Cruel hope crusher item level 715+Leech = 6.4k region market
We can't micro manage each items given the number of item variation, TSM should in my opinion automatize this by providing accurate pricing.
I suggest you group each item variation by item level, like TUJ is doing, to consolidate pricing and avoid having the kind of pricing above. Players are then free to create tertiary stat or socket groups that adds a fixed amount of gold added, just like 25/blue battle pets.
That's how you calculate battle pet market price, I think you should apply this to gear with variation.
Can you not do this yourself under group management?
I would only track the different item levels, not all the possible bonus stats.
