    Can you sell Collectors edition items on the Auction House?

    I am curious if you can or not, My friend claims he saw a blue post saying you may sell any item on the AH, which would include the C.E. Angel wings and dyes. Is this true for false?

    I don't think you can sell angel wings or dyes on the AHs. But items that have been dyed with one of the CE dyes, maybe?

    interesting. selling items already dyed, if they let you that may be a good way to turn a profit

    Yes, you can. Bashiok posted in a thread specifically asking about this. He said the items will not be tradable themselves, but items you have dyed with the CE dye will be.

    I HOPE that the dye will disappear in that case... it probably won't but it feels like the value of CE dyes will be greatly reduced if they can be obtained through a friend :/ this makes Urzuxo sad.

    Probably, but only when you're trading them in-game. The reason is that the AH doesn't show you the color of the item as far as I know. This means that once or twice you may trade an item for more than it's worth when you find a buyer in a game or in the chat, but doing this constantly instead of just selling your stuff on the AH will require a lot of time and time is money.

    That may be possible. Personally I'm hoping it doesn't. As Apocolypse said it may be a good way to make a profit.

    EDIT: Hardrock has a good point. I wasn't aware that you could not see dye colors on the AH.

    do we know how dyes work exactly? is the ce dye an unlimited use item? is it 1 use per char? either way it will decrease the "cool/wow" factor to having the CE dyes. i mean even at 1 per char created people can just make dye trade delete and do it all over again. so ya i am with you i hope the color vanishes during trading, even if there is profit to be made

    CE dyes are unlimited (that is confirmed). Someone in this thread made a point though that you can't see on the AH if an item is dyed so the only way to make a profit from the CE dyes is person-person trading which means that it won't happen so frequently. Urzuxo is happy again.

    I have to say that it's a relief that dyes don't show up in the auction house. It would make buying/selling decisions so much more complicated.

    well it just means there will be more people trying to trade in chat. i rather all items go back to original color after being traded/sold.

    Dyes probably won't be so rare, that people won't be able to afford to dye an item they bought off the AH in pink. :)

    Re: Can you sell Collectors edition items on the Auction House?

    So back on topic, CE items are not sell-able nor trade-able correct? of course not counting items which are already dyed, I mean the wings and dyes themselves. Does anyone have any blue quote on this?

    Ofcourse they wont be. Or they wouldnt be collectors items. Blizz cant charge a premium for those goodies if everybody ends up getting the for free via trade.

    CE dyed items on the AH is stretching it imo. CE items should be CE account exclusive.
