hypothetical question. gold value.

Pet Battles
my friend and i were talking about our increasing pet collections. a topic came up and i was wondering if others could weigh in.

what do you think would be a ballpark gold value for every cagable pet currently in WoW?
Since "ballpark" means kinda-close estimate, there's no such thing with pet values. Varies across realms, from day-to-day, and depends on whatever people are willing to pay.

Some are consistently lot pricier than others

Just couple of examples with the expensive pets, couple days ago the Spectral Tiger Cub was on the Area 52 AH for 53K, was listed as high as 130K on another realm.

Viscous Horror wasn't really cheap back during Pandaria days but then lots and lots of folks were running Throne of Thunder and good supply of the Horrors on AH. Now that that's old content not many people interested and they're in short supply, usually over 100K on most realms.

Really about only way to get an idea of what your pets are actually worth is to look at AH prices on the realms you have players on. Then you need to remember that this is what people are asking, not necessarily what people are willing to pay.

Truer words have never been spoken. The value of an item is fluid. It differs from person to person and depends on if they are buying or selling. :)

I was curious too!

This website gives an approximate value of what each of your non-soulbound pets are worth on the AH.

I have all of pets that you can buy from the AH and it values my collection at ~2-2.8 mil gold depending on which server I choose. After subtracting my duplicate pets, it's worth ~2 million gold on Stormrage where my alt is, which is (I think) the most populated alliance server. On Emerald-Dream, which is medium pop,the pets are a lot rarer so it's valued slightly higher, about 2.8mil.

I'm sure that just by waiting for deals you can get everything for less than a mil on a server like Stormrage.

Thanks for the link Alonnie, I didn't know about that site. Its list of all the cageable pets with the week's average price across all realms is helpful, and also gives an idea of just how crazy AH prices can be.

Valuing my collection I was shocked at how low it was. Finally figured out why, I was using a toon on a low-pop realm, when I tried again with a Stormrage toon it came up with a value over 1.5 mil higher even though pets almost always cheaper there. Realized that the low-pops don't have nearly as complete a selection so any pet that was missing during the week's calculation gets valued at zero.

Other interesting Stormrage-related point, pets currently on their AH almost always cheaper than the average price the site quotes, sometimes by as much as 40K.
I use this website for all auctions in WOW:

Just pick the realm you want, type in what you want to see, and look for the "US Median Price" towards the bottom.

Example here is for pet Weebomination

Also, if you scroll down a bit you can see a 12 month history of AH postings and prices.
Personally, some caegable pets just don't sell very well and I would love it if we could sell pets back to an NPC for tokens. I suppose the value of each pet would need to be static but it would take those 12,000 reindeers off the streets.
