In mid-Cataclysm Blizzard added a system to the Dungeon Finder called Call to Arms. The Call to Arms system analyzes the ratio of tanks, healers, and DPS queuing for max-level heroic dungeons and, if it finds that there's not enough of a given role queuing, it will add a Call to Arms for that role. The Call to Arms will give anyone who queues for that role a Satchel of Exotic Goods upon completion of a dungeon while the Call to Arms is active.

Satchels can contain gold, uncut gems, potions, and rarely pets and mounts.

at the very least, its a decent way of getting some extra cash :P

the mount/pet ratio is a nice incentive, but its rare enough to get one that you can't count on it at all (just nice for the back of your mind while dungeon running).

But an extra 80-100 gold and usually a flask worth 40-120g on the AH, per run, makes for a nice supplementary income sometimes :P

The rest of the time you get a Master Mana Potion. :p

Since I came back to WoW just before Christmas I've gotten 3x of the Swift White plainstriders and 2x Blue Drakes.

Both of which I already had when I quit playing at the end of Wrath.

I think the RNG of WoW likes to mock me. Also, don't ask me how many heroics I've tanked between my DK and my warrior. It's a number that is far too high.

I go the durotar scorpion pet twice from it in Cata. That was a nice 10k gold.

My only irritation with the satchel was that sometimes you didn't get it at the end, heh.

I have yet to see a mount and have been tanking from the start. I hate you and all you stand for.

If the mounts were not BoP, then you could be mad. However, I had to delete them as not to waste bag/bank space.

It makes a person sad.

If I could have sold them, then I would have been very happy.

I got my raven lord out of it on my shaman. Few pets. Lotta gold, some flasks, and some pots of each type.

Seems like they're very rare nowadays...

I get pets, gold, flasks, buff food, and the odd item. I am currently funding my (admittedly very casual) guild with this income. Tankin' is straight pimpin'.

The bag is pretty worthless unless you're going to run them anyway, and since heroics are pointless why would you. You average less than 100g including the items and it takes 20-30 mins for a run. You can get 100+ g just from 1 stack of frostweave cloth. The mounts/pets are quite rare, at least for anything that is remotely interesting.
