    You have buyouts of 50k for +1 tomes!

    That's just crazy prices.

    Oh, the time? Guess it's just some more 'quality' turbine quality control :/

    I think the crazy time is when an item has passed the cut off time but hasn't yet been sent to the buyer.

    The timer will go from 1 minute to crazy time to item gone.

    I maybe wrong.

    So you post something in AH, delete your toon, and it's there forever? Interesting.

    Or is it posted by an elf, and AH adjusts automatically for life-span?

    Shopped or Turbine bug, you decide.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    This is back again?

    Hmmm. I thought we already resolved that this is Turbine's way of allowing parents to provide for their children and grandchildren's DDO enjoyment, no?

    ya its kinda a bug... when the timer reaches zero and it finalizes the auction it shows that time span for a little while it sorts itself out... however if you had the last bid and were eagerly awaiting delivery of your item and someone outbids you in the last second.. as long as that weird time is posted you can sometimes ninjabid and sneak your item back from the ah theif!!... done it twice now to my great satisfaction after clock watching for 3 days to keep my bid up only to have it cherrypicked at last minute. and watch, now that I have said this they will fix it before anyone reads this post, lol..

    You really think anyone would waist there time photo shopping something this stupid? I could understand if say I was claiming to have soloed elite ToD or EAdQ; or that I found a +9 con item, but this? this is just a quirk on the AH.

    I'm not even bragging, I was curious. That shop is even mentioned is ridiculous. This is probably the same type of guy who, if I had NOT posted a pic, would have said, "screen cap or it never happened." Since I posted a screen cap he had to find a different way to doubt the veracity of my statement. Guess you can't please everyone.

    I can explain.

    What you are seeing is about the maximum value of a long unsigned integer which is 4,294,967,295.

    I calculated the current time remaining on the item, and 136 years, 2 months, 1 week, 3 days, 6 hours, 25 minutes equals about 4,294,944,000 seconds.

    Compare the seconds remaining in the item to the value of a long unsigned int, and they are almost equal. Therefore, what I think is happening is that there's a bug in the program that sets the display value to the maximum possible value.

    This issue has been around since the last update. It's nothing new nor is it photoshopped.

    A GM can deal with the auction if you put in a ticket.

    I noticed this happening when I have put in last minute bids. I think to prevent sniping, or some code issues, the auction does not end for another 2 - 5 minutes. That is when those type of errors display.
