I could swear I remember reading somewhere that you can’t mail items between characters on the same account because “that lets you have extra free storage.”
For the auction house
a) Look at prices for comparable items currently up for offer.
b) On commodites, have the bid equal the buyout.
c) For green items with anything other than the perfect type of stats (you want +strength and +stamina on a sword, for example), don’t bother.
d) For perfect green items, set, or uniques: beats me.
100% sure that that is wrong. I mail goods and money between my main and my alts all the time - in fact, during the short period that I thought it was worthwhile to try to make money as a low-level tailor, I would often send my alt a bunch of silk I’d seen at auction, and I’ve been trading my bags down through my alts as I go.
The one-hour delay is enough of a penalty for trying to use an alt as a storage bin.
Also, keep in mind that Rogues really, really like one-handed +agility weapons, since agility adds as much attack power as strength for them, and also adds to the crit chance.
Oh, just experiment and feed the pet anything. I’d think that you would want to feed the pet the strongest food that they’re capable of eating (i.e. no Banana Bread at level 10). Food is cheap and plentiful, which is amazing considering that every farm routinely gets raided and (metaphorically) burned to the ground.
Or you could do the easy thing, look at the “Combat” chat tab and see exactly how much happiness each type of food gives.
For what it’s worth, the highest happiness per tick I’ve seen is 35, which you get from meat that costs 5s per stack (lvl 15). The 10s/stack food gives the same amount of happiness (and this is to a lvl 41 pet so I know that’s not the limiting factor).
