A question about the auction house.

Our accounts have a limit of 300 entities: characters, pets, and partners, but only 200 can be characters. The present bank gold storage rules are 20M gold for the first 10 characters then 10M for each subsequent character. This makes a maximum possible bank gold storage limit of:
20Mgold/character x 20character + (200-10)character x 10Mgold/character = 400Mgold + 1900Mgold = 2300Mgold = 2.3Ggold.

So how do you buy or collect on items listed for more than that in the Auction House?

    Fixed a typo in the equation

    To answer the question, you can't buy off the Auction house. If the item is really for sale, it would have to be done through a trade with checks. Possibly the AH post is being used to brag, or to Manipulate the market in certain rare cases. Eg Blazing Magic Essense current price point is ~300m in Nao. If a character has 10, they could post the stack at 220m each, and they will show as the lowest (when somebody new goes to list one, even though the stack of 10 is much lower than actual price, but is effectively unbuyable because of bank limits

    Blazing's actually half that right now and some people post items at absurd amounts because they don't know the price, want to advertise, or want people who sort by price to see it first on the list. But, that's not what I actually came here to address.

    About bank limits:
    You can collect funds for items that are sold for a value worth more than your bank limit.
    What happens is that you are charged the usual AH fee for a sale (the one you can negated with a discount coupon). After that, you receive a notice that the funds exceed your limit and that can accept an additional fee for making a check that contains the resultant post-fee amount of the sale funds; it will be placed into your inventory and you cannot trade it. It's a portable fund-holder, in that you can dump off the gold into your bank later on to use for future purchases. However, you'd have to suffer yet another check-making fee if you need to convert that gold into distributable checks after that fact. The fee charging process behind it would occur separately, in that a sale of an item for 500m would suffer a 5% AH fee (so, 475m) and then the 5% check-making fee on that resultant price (so, 451.25m).

    Oh, okay that explains how one would cash-in, since the banks offer to make a kind of IOU so to speak for the difference; interesting. But how could one PAY for such an item though?
