    Unhappy Massive AH Disaster...

    Yesterday, for the first time since launch of SoA, I received very rare, valuable item. I won a Tarnished Symbol of Celebrimbor in a skirmish PUG. I was ecstatic...finally time for me to get some Gold in reserve to buy nice things. Well, I screwed up....big time. I put in on the AH, and instead of marking the price 455 gold and change, I posted it at 455 SILVER. I logged back in to my AH toon last night right after Thanksgiving dinner and discovered with heartbreak my mistake (screen shot below)

    I know this is probably pointless to ask, but is there anything that can be done about this? I am heartbroken...I cannot believe I made such a stupid mistake on something so amazing. I suppose I was very distracted by all the family things going on, but still...shocking. thanks

    There is nothing you can do. Unless you can find the buyer, but I doubt s/he would give it back. That was truly a steal of a deal for them.

    I've make a similar mistake before with selling groups of 100 ore or wood. It really sucks when you get the letter of sale. Feels a bit like you got made fun of . "Congratulations! You sold your item for a lot less than you hoped for, and it was YOUR fault!"

    Why you double check your listing for very valuable items, example A.

    Sorry, there is nothing you can do about this. At least it's only ingame gold and not real money, eh?

    Actually, I'm the one who bought it, and I looked for you in GLFF once I bought it (bought it too fast to know your name, but knew the price you put it up for).

    It'll be in your mail, soon.

    Oh my God...I cannot even believe this. I am speechless and floored. Thank you so much. Yeah, I logged right after I posted it because we had to leave to visit with family. You can send it to either Redeglan (my lvl-17-for-4-years-bank-ah-toon) or Ainatarcil (my main).

    I cannot thank you enough...I seriously am so shocked right now that I don't know what else to say. I know it is just a game and does not really matter, but it was so disappointing to make a mistake like that on my first time ever having the chance to break the 100g mark and buy some nice upgrades. You have restored a lot of faith in me of the kindness of strangers. Cheers, mate...a thousand times.

    Well done Mykonos, you are a credit to your Kin, to the server and to the wider LotRO community. Congrats Urchy on getting a second chance, be more careful this time
