ICEBANE ARMOR !
i dont think il be using this feature much. its for only a few with big budgets
If this was a vendor, I would have a problem with it. In fact, I almost don´t like the vendors in beta selling the 372 green gear.But this is not a vendor, these are very random items that you bid on. You can´t determine what gear will show up, or what mounts. I heard people in this thread say ´i earned my mount, now it will be everywhere´.. you realize that for most mounts, they will probably show up 1 or 2 times in a year? On an entire server, 1 or 2 extra people may have it. It is NOT a vendor, you won´t have 100 people buying it as soon as it shows up.my brain hurts reading some of the people posting in this thread. There are 1000 people on my server with Baron´s mount.. is it that big of a deal if 3 more have it by paying 100k gold?
But just wondering, the rarer mounts like Blazing Drake and Smouldering aren't going to cost like 999,999g are they like it has in picture above?
This is a terrible idea. Now someone who grinded for months "enter rare item name here" can now buy it with gold.. which can also be purchased online. Therfore their months of grinding will amount to nothing and they will get the same respect as those who just bought it. GG Blizz.
I think the point everyone is missing, is that you're talking about a specific small number of extra pets and mounts of each type being available per year. It's not a vendor, and the likelihood that the specific pet or mount you want will be up at any one time is low. It's not going to be going to everyone who has the money to pay for it. One will occasionally be going to someone who had money and had the luck to be online when they needed to be to get the last bid in, in what I believe is a PvP area where people will be attacking them to keep them from bidding. I think people underestimate how few people will actually acquire each pet or mount this way, and what a pain in the butt it will be to win the auction even if you have the gold.
I really don't understand the purpose of the BMAH. It doesn't seem like it will be all that effective as a gold sink, and I don't see any reason to make rare items and raid gear more easily available for people who stockpile lots of gold.
We will have to see what happens on live. So far it is very underwhelming. Yesterday, there was a single item on it, a pet from argent tourny... something you can buy on the regular AH pretty easily for 3k.I do think it will be a nice gold sink, at least to wipe out the gold of someone who is near cap. But I haven´t seen anything exciting on the BMAH for awhile.But even when the BMAH was hopping, you rarely saw epic gear on there, and it was so spread out.. if you are extremely lucky you may be able to buy one piece of gear per tier. And then what? in 2 months all the gold gets flushed when you replace that item.
