LAST CHANCE!! 2 Rag and 1 DW Mount this Thurs

I realize with the end of the xpac coming, not everyone got the mounts they wanted. I also realize that not everyone is sitting on hundreds of thousands of gold to buy these mounts. As a mount collector, my heart goes out to you.

We've given out these mounts to all our raiders, friends, and casuals... so they're just no use for us anymore, and I hate to see them go to waste.

So for the rest of this xpac, we'll be selling H-Rag and H-DW mounts to the highest bidder.

Only have 20k to spend on it?
That's fine.
You now have a chance to get your mount in 3 easy steps.

1. PST or send an in-game mail to Taluka, Samayael, or Scootles indicating:
- which mount you are bidding on
- what day you prefer
- your maximum bid
- contact information

2. BE ONLINE at 5pm server (no later than 5:30pm) the day of the raid (Tuesday/Thursday).

3. If you are the winner, you will be told a specific time to be ready for a summon.

Bid what you can spend, but keep in mind that others may still outbid you.
We do 2 DS and 2 FL clears each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
**Tuesday summoning times will be approximately 7:30pm for DW, and approx. 8:30pm for Rag.
**Thursday summoning times will be at 6pm for DW and approx. 6:15pm for Rag.
Winners will be summoned in only at the last boss.

Bidding for mounts will close at 5pm server the day of the run, and we'll notify the winner by in-game mail (or RID if you supply it).
PLEASE ENSURE YOU ARE ONLINE NO LATER THAN 5:30 THE DAY OF THE RAID.
If you do not provide adequate contact information and we cannot get a hold of you to notify you of a winning bid, or to summon you in for the kill, you will lose your spot and we'll take the second highest bidder in your place.

First off, we'd like to thank everyone for all the interest in bidding so far. We hope that we can find homes for all of these mounts.

However, due to some bids being significantly larger than others, we've decided in the interest of fairness to implement a 15% bidding flexibility.

What this means is that if someone bids up to 100k for the mount and someone else bids 50k for the mount, the winner who bid up to 100k will only be charged 57.5k (50k + 15%) for the mount and not the full 100k they initially put up.

As another example, if the winning bid is 55k with the second highest bid being 50k, the 15% increase would not apply in this situation, and 55k would be the winning bid.

We're really just trying to keep this as fair and flexible as possible. We're not in this purely out of profit. We're just trying to handle it to the best of our ability. Our main goal is to help people get these mounts for a not ridiculous price before they're changed to a low drop rate.

Tally can be pretty nice if she tries. :P

Nah, we just thought that instead of seeing these mounts go to waste, we'd try to do something nice with them. Why not try something different and give more people a shot at these mounts? I know and Tal knows that not everyone has enough gold to buy these mounts normally; I know I certainly don't have 100k sitting in my bank.

If this doesn't really pan out, that's no big deal to me; we tried something different. If it means someone who normally couldn't get the mount ends up with a Lifebinder's Handmaiden or a Pureblood Firehawk? That's awesome, they're cool mounts. We'd just rather not see these mounts go to waste.

Yeah - no worries. Still got it ear-marked for you.

There's 4 DW mounts and 3 FL mounts up for grabs.
I just hope people take advantage of this while the drop is still there.

I would have no idea where to even begin on bidding. But really, you guys are awesome for doing that. And it's really a genius idea, to be honest. You still get the most amount of money anyone will pay without having to wait for someone to meet your pricing. I like it. :)

Bidding is honestly just no more than you would want to spend on it. It's a personal thing, and if you only want to spend 20-50k on the mount, bid that. You don't lose anything by doing so. Worst case scenario is that someone outbids you. However, there's always the chance you might get the mount anyways. And who wouldn't want that? :)

All depends on how much interest we can generate.

We have been getting a lot of positive feedback for the idea though, and it makes me really happy to hear it. I just wish more guilds would do the same now.

I'm not trying to gouge people for all the gold they have, just trying to provide an opportunity to people who otherwise wouldn't have that chance. I don't believe in shafting people at the end of an expansion - I would rather help them accomplish the goals they weren't able to.

It's obvious you aren't trying to gouge anyone, and that's cool. Sometimes I wonder if the guilds with the high prices actually get buyers. I'm warring with myself on whether or not to bid at the moment because I'm low on gold after leveling all the professions I didn't have, lol.

PS: There have been no bids so far on the H Deathwing mount, so we're hoping for someone to put forth an initial bid. We'd hate to see this mount left rotting in the chest again.

I named mine, Skittles :p

Still looking for bids on the DW mounts though. Any offer is better than no offer!
We've run out of people to give these mounts to and have been leaving them sitting in the chest. There's gotta be someone out there who wants this mount.
