    Booty Bay Gazette died, Blizzard released an official API, and NexusHub sucks for niche item searches and anything with suffixes since it straight up doesn't support them. That summarizes the state of auction house scanning on Classic since Vanilla ended. I like hoarding gear and helping people finish their characters, so I wrote a small tool that lets you search globally for any item near instantly. It is ugly and needs some polish and filtering options (EU/US are smashed together atm), but it works for those of you looking for super rare suffix gear or super rare blues (PoD, Spellshocks, etc) and do server hops to get it.

    Some TODOs and limitations:
    - Make a real UI.
    - If your search has >100 results, it won't return any.
    - Grandfathered suffixed items are kind of invisible because they don't exist in the rand table. They will show up unsuffixed, but will show the correct (grandfathered) stats when hovering over them in the listings. So search for them without suffixes.
    - Updates only once an hour. This is a Blizzard API limitation.
    - No filtering of anything but item name for now. But the main reason I built this, suffixes, do work, and the tooltips show the exact stats. You can filter for realms directly from the API call for now (https://auctions.n4ru.it/search?name=Pendulum of Doom&realm=Mankrik)
    - Discord bot is basically done, works the same as the query box pretty much. Isn't public yet, but am looking for testers if there's interest.
    - Notifications like BBG had are probably next, might be cool to have this functionality in the discord bot so you get DM'd when something you need pops up on your server.

    Lemme know if this is something you'd like to see built out a bit more and would use, otherwise I'll probably just leave it running untouched.

    Yea, you and some guy on benediction are the only ones listing it above 75. I dont know why you keep trying to insist that you're offering a reasonable price.

    There's currently one for less than 10k on Lakeshire, a handful in the 10-15k range, and another 8 in the 30-55k range. You saw all this and have increased your price from 125k to 150k lol

    List it for whatever you want, man. But lets not pretend thats not only outside the norm but well outside any actual worth to performance.

    Sorry, had some server issues. I'm away on a cruise until tomorrow night. Will fix it then and will have a failover server for next time just in case.

    Suggestion, don't take capitalization into play for server name.
    "pagle" should be detected as "Pagle" or just make it a dropdown lol
    minor nitpick but I was like... this damn thing doesn't work for me! :wheelchair:
