Auction House revealed during Hunters Lodge in June 2021.

The Coin Hunt World Auction House released on August 2nd 2021.

Players are able to buy and sell Resources, Blueprints and Cubies with their Keys in the CHW Auction House.

Buys and sells are initially locked for each player. It costs a one time fee of 1 green key to unlock buys and 1 yellow key to unlock sells.

  • If you drag a yellow key on the bid screen it will auto convert to a stack of 100 blue keys
  • The winning bid goes to the item owner in the highest key combo possible (auto forge up). So if you want to bid 2xKeyYellow.png on an item, you could pay with 2xKeyYellow.png, 20xKeyGreen.png or 200xKeyBlue.png or any combo that fits, but the item owner would get 2xKeyYellow.png.
  • Auto forge up but not auto forge down
  • There is a 10 minute delay between when auctions end and auction rewards are received by buyers/sellers.
  • Phase 1 was a full 7 day duration, highest bid only. So there will be a tumultuous period of price discovery for each item but this should stabilize after a while.
  • On August 9th, 2021 an updated version of Auction House went live including:
    • Auction time reduced to 3 days. All auctions that had over 3 days left were set to 3 days.
    • New filter: sort by bid amount (cheapest vs most expensive)
    • Changing the clock to represent a day each
  • Phase 2 will add more features based on the feedback from phase 1.

Unlocking the Auction House
