Sad that removed patterns will be obtained this way, because I doubt most of them were intended to be removed, just accidental that the mob they were tied to were removed.
As for mounts, I think I will take my chances with 8 90s farming it once a week instead of *hoping* it turns up on this AH.
Remember, this is only for show at the moment. How many of these super rare or removed items will turn up on the AH? How often, once a month or once a week?
I am okay with others getting most removed items from it but not event stuff like Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal
, contest tabard, etc., even though I would like them. Really going to wait until it is live to see how often the rare items cycle through.
This might be worth moving a capped bank and heirlooms to level farming alts on a low pop realm...
edit: Might also have to get that silly online AH addon and a phone that can use it if there are really short duration auctions
And Wrathion is there!
