when you shift click an item to spam it to /2 Trade, do you see the green link? inserting details works ok for me, but when I see my own chat line, it doesn't come up as linkable object.
Er, I think the link color actually matches the 'rarity value' of the object... white/grey for common, green for uncommon, blue for rare items, and purple for epic. All items are color-coded in this way. Auctioning green items in the AH can be hit-or miss depending on server economy. All pretty good advice... although you didn't include much on professions.
It's best to start on them early, as alot of the early receipies require drops that become alot more rare at higher levels, as the loot gets 'upgraded' for higher level monsters (meaning you have to go kill non-xp mobs for a while to gather low-level tradeskill components). So while linen is pretty common from level 5-10 monsters, after 15 or so you start seeing alot more wool instead of linen.
Everyone can learn fishing, cooking and first aid, all three of which are pretty useful skills, and the first two are sometimes involved in quests and/or tradeskills. They're pretty useful to have skilled up, especially for melee classes, which can use food to regenerate health faster and bandges to heal themselves.--
