    As an example, i got myself the Riverpaw Mystic Staff and Jewelled Dagger neither of which i think is BiS. Could i expect them to sell or do people only want what is BiS?

    I mean if I saw an epic riverpaw mystic for a good deal I would definitely buy it.

    If your bags are not completely filled with different sets with different stats/enchants are you even trying?

    BiS now doesn't always mean BiS later.

    For me, if it’s either something I need for transmog or something a little same as the current armor I have. Every item that’s not up to those standards is either sell to vendor or to the action house.

    Basically the same thing, except laernyth adds enchanted strolls incase you need to replace a piece of armor/weapon.

    For those items, I’d suggest keeping for now but if you find something better sell them for bag space.

    I'll buy & wear grandfathered items just to have them. Even without them being BIS. Items such as mystic staff though? I'd purchase at a fair rate, since it's a good substitute/temporary item

    Well...

    It's very rare that a single set of gear will be enough to fill every nich a character is capable of. How do you know what's good if you haven't tested everything yourself?

    Its obvious what items are good and bad, you don't need to test every item to figure that out mate.

    It isn't unlikely that few* items have inaccurate tooltips though. I mean, quite a few enchants are inaccurate...but I agree

    Yeah the only inaccurate tooltip at 19 that I remember off the top of my head was the fang 5 set, even then it wasn't bad unless you had inferno robes to replace your chest.

    Different sets have different breakpoints. After each a Vers, Crit, Haste and raw AP complete set of gear your bags are pretty hefty. With many sets you will need many interim pieces while you are finishing them as well.

    You can't all be so shortsighted as to not see the use in gathering good pieces for extra sets...

    People buy non bis if they don't have gold for bis but still want to play. I'm a huge aher and have made well over 170 mil the past 2 xpacs, a majority of my sales have been twink gear up until recently, and I still sell non bis to this day

    Of course.

    Do you think every single piece of gear that sells on the AH is BiS?

    Why anyone would have a picture of an abdomen as their picture is beyond me.

    Clearly, everyone should use anime or pony avatars.
