Why are my sellable pets bound to me now?

General Discussion
I had a red cricket that I would put on the AH and today when I logged in and tried to sell it; it gave me a message saying I couldn't sell it because it was soulbound. So like any other time you get a pet and want to cage it, I learned it only to find it can't be caged...

wtf
I got a brawlers guild pass from a rare a few minutes ago and that's bound to me as well... I was hoping to sell it :(

That's normal.
Now I'm afraid to learn Landro's Lichling. My wife bought me the card so that I can use it or sell it on the AH. I think with the uncertainty of the pet situation and the sudden changing of how it used to work I'll just keep the card un-scratched.
Boe stuff sometimes becomes bound. I had a level 85 epic mace I was going to sell, couple weeks later i was at the AH, and its now bop...
you can only sell the brawlers pass you get at rank 7 or something.

Rank doesn't give you the ability to "unbind" soulbound items.

..and?
Those are the passes which are mailed on reaching certain ranks.
The item you linked isn't dropped by rares, nor was it ever BoP.

Me?

Nope.

People in this thread don't seem to realise that Brawler's Pass and Blood-Soaked Invitation are different items, with different functions, obtained from different sources.

You neglected to read the actual post you were replying to. You were tripping over yourself to be the first one to correct him, but no correction was needed.

Ok, hmm. My extra Red Cricket is currently listed on my AH -- but I just noticed that it now says BOP (didn't notice that before). I wonder if I am going to be stuck with yet another learned Red Cricket when this one is returned if it doesn't sell.

What is it.. "gang up on the bunny day" or something?

Rank has no bearing on the ability to sell world drop invitations.
It can not be done, regardless of rank.
The poster at #2 used the name of the wrong item, which resulted in the response by the panda @ #4, whose comment implies that a rare magically dropped a Brawlers Pass.

..and I'm the one with comprehension issues.
Go figure.
(perhaps you should all be complaining about the panda.. who attempted to correct someone after the correct info had already been given?)

hmm?
hmm?
..oh yeah.. the Red Cricket, I almost forgot.

This may or may not be intended, they are now indeed marked as BoP, and can't be caged.

Kyzera, if yours is still listed, try taking advantage of it.. spam trade stating that it's now BoP, and someone should buy it before no more can be listed for sale!
There are a few pets that are tradeable as items but not after you learn them. Red Cricket is one like that. The two crafted kites work like that way too.

The AH has two sections for pets. Caged pets go under Battle Pets.

Items that can be learned as pets go under Misc./Companion Pets.

So... how did the poster at #15 manage to list their 2nd cricket for auction (where it currently remains) if it was BoP prior to the patch?

Yes, we understand that. However, that is not the issue at hand. Prior to 5.4, you were able to sell the one that you received in the Chirping Package. Now you cannot do that as it shows as BOP.
