wow auction house boost 9.2.7 ptr featuredimage

After receiving the release date for the Season 4 of Shadowlands, we have also gotten a couple of significant changes coming for 9.2.7. First and foremost, while Auction Houses have remained server-specific, they will soon become region-wide. What this means is that instead of having different prices depending on the server, they will instead be the same no matter the server you’re on. While it will still be restricted to your region, meaning that there will be EU, NA and OCE Auction Houses, it should still considerably help the players on smaller population server, where not only were the prices much higher compared to higher population ones, but there was also fewer buyers and sellers. With this change, your choice of server will no longer affect your ability to buy and sell items on the auction house.

The other potentially significant change is the addition of a new chat channel dedicated to the advertisement or search of boosting services. Despite the crackdown from Blizzard against cross-server boosting communities, not much has changes for players. The Group Finders still have cross-server boosting advertisements, and hopefully, this new channel will help create a new, authorized way, to advertise boosts and look for them. However, it remains to be seen whether the advertisements will remain in that new channel, or if the advertisements will continue to appear in undesirable places.

World of Warcraft Version 9.2.7 PTR


  • Auction Houses across all realms on a given region will now share commodity listings (gems, herbs, flasks, consumables, etc.). Items that aren’t commodities –- like armor and weapons –- will continue to be realm-specific.
    • Developers’ note: The Auction House you know and use today should look and feel exactly the same; it’ll just have way more buyers and sellers available to you for commodities. We’d love for players to hop on the PTR, copy over their characters, and help us test the Auction House across the entire PTR region. We might schedule a specific time in a few weeks for everyone to hop on at the same time to help stress it, details tbd.


  • A new chat channel for searching or advertisement of services like raiding, dungeons, or PvP activities has been added: Trade (Services).
    • Developers’ note: The trade channel that’s been in the game for 18 years will continue to exist, but we wanted to add a new channel to direct messages about the request and advertisement of services like raiding, dungeons, or PvP activities. If you’re looking to buy or sell these kind of services, this is the channel for you! If you’re not interested in those, you can leave the channel and avoid the noise, or move it into its own chat tab. We believe that with this new distinction, you’ll be able to keep Trade chat for the traditional buying and selling of items and professions, and not other chatter.
