    Auction 2 :10PM EST,7PM PST.3h difference
    Auction 3 :12AM EST,9PM PST. ??? This dont add up.


    About buy outs. Is it allowed to do buyout if someone already have made a bid?


    Regards

    As soon as Mesanna places a moongate from luna to the Rares Festival, I will announce when the bidding may begin to give players ample time to start bidding together.

    Scandinavian, buy outs are only in Auction House 3, and yes you can buyout any item that has bids on it as long as those bids do not exceed the buyout.

    Auction Houses are now open for bidding. I cannot accept anymore items for Auction House 3, it is currently full. If you do a buyout, please ICQ me, then I can replace items with more items.

    Hopefully I will get Auction Houses 1 + 2 Filled By Midnight Tonight. I may still have room in these auction houses, contact me with the items you wish to enter. I will be updating the bulletin boards in the interim. Thank you for your patience.

    Folks, three silent auction houses is unheard of! And to have them over capacity is amazing! I have seen a few items in the no reserve, no buyout (first house) that will go for a billion or more! Get your items in while you still can!
