Stop putting up bombay cats.

Put the spirit of competition & I'll throw my gold at the pandas.


Put KC up there and watch the gold fly!

I haven't seen anything exciting yet. Then again, I don't check it everyday. I did see a bombay cat for 30 gold. I thought the bids for pets always started at 10k gold?

That mount is one of the very few things I want from the BMAH.

The Black Market Auction House features a wide variety of items. One week it might have something like an Enchanted Broom, the next week Ashes of Al'ar. It's completely random, and varies per realm. Certainly there have been items up on a few realms that people hit the bid cap on.

Just keep watching, it's bound to have something you want sooner or later. Only trick is, it'll probably be desirable to other people too. Good luck!


The problem with the BMAH is that it doesn't resemble the normal AH. There's only ever 1-2 items on it, when there are thousands of sought after items in the game (many of which are no longer available).

So it seems completely benign and a waste of time to visit the AH every day looking for something cool when there are only ever 1-2 items up at a time.

Also, the lack of Buyout option really makes it unappealing.

Make it more like the normal AH, with a much bigger selection of items at any given time, and add buyout options.

I saw the guitar that they had during an old Halloween event in Kara- someone bought it for over 70k!

There's also been a tabard of flame...I snagged that one...and a few other things too.

They should just have RMAH like Diablo 3.

People spend cash, blizzard gets a cut, everyone is happy.

They already sell pets and mounts for cash.


No

No.


You do know people buy millions of gold every day for cash and then use it on the AH?

Why not cut out the gold farmers?


And those people are in violation of the ToS

I bought Reins of the Blue Drake on BMAH. I forget what I paid... 75k I think. Happy with that, although to be honest I only rode it twice since buying it.

So far I haven't seen anything else I'm interested in on BMAH... but I admit am tempted by Eternal Reign guild's offer of a 9/9 Silver Challenge Mode clear on Lightbringer. Only 200k (edit as price has dropped)

Such a deal.

Umm...durrr...

Why I said they should add a RMAH for pets and items they want to sell.

Everyone does realize you can buy pets and mounts from battle.net for cash, right?

I am 100% sure when I bought a panda pet dude for $5 when it was on sale, that didn't effect the game for anyone.

My friend has tons of gold in the game, I have few hundred dollars to blow....

Why shouldn't we be able to trade?

But they do it anyway, and may not get caught. I knew a few people still playing in cata who've bought gold. Or one person who bought time cards with gold they got 'stealing' BoEs from Icecrown.

People break the ToS and often don't get caught, don't get punished. And others do.

Speaking of ToS breaking, in BC I knew a druid named Druggy. He had to change his name every month by order of the GMs but he also changed it back to some form of Druggy. One day Steveo logged on and we all said "Who they heck are you?" He said "Druggy". The GM instead of letting him chose his name, changed it for him, to Steveo. Well played Blizzard, well played.

Anyway. Saying something is against the ToS is pretty moot. Considering special characters, real named people, and blizzard characters names are against the naming ToS. And swearing is against the ToS... But I don't see many bans happening every time a Chucknorris runs by, or someone says the f-bomb. It seems people don't always get reported, caught, or punished for breaking the ToS. Go figure.

Do you perhaps mean the azure drake? Because the blue drake became available from the "Please, god, queue for oculus" rewards bag at the end of wrath.

I'd pay 75k for the azure drake.
