Just think tho i have spent those same years and obviously longer than those years trying to get the same thing to drop i just wasnt as lucky with my roll now i have a way to buy that thing i wasnt lucky on the one time it dropped
Does anyone have any advice on timing? Also, does the BMAH have the same timer as faction and neutral AH? Or does Very long mean 24 hours instead of 48?
24 Hours. Long is a 12 hour shift I've counted.
Bleh. I don't know about others, but I enjoy farming for mounts and stuff. The prospect of it finally dropping is exciting. I'll have less to look forward to once I've gotten everything. Being able to buy it is kind of cheap.
I agree with you, John. Plus, I don't have the gold to just buy one :\\ I'd much rather just hold onto my gold for other stupid things.
I hope all the people who were freaking out about how people were going to be buying rare mounts by the dozen from the BMAH have calmed down by now and realized this isn't nearly as gamebreaking as they originally thought. I don't know about other servers, but with daily checking of the BMAH I have only seen a handful of rare-ish mounts since MOP launched. Out of more rare mounts we've seen an Onyxian Drake, a Drake of the South Wind and that's been pretty much it in terms of raid mounts. Most days there isn't much more than an easy to come by pet on there and a recipe and a piece of pvp gear.Plus, I'd like you to consider that plenty of people you see on rare raid mounts didn't actually grind them for months, many of them simply get lucky with RNG and/or rolls. A guildie of mine got an Onyxian Drake on his first kill of Onyxia ever (on any character). Is it diminishing your "accomplishments" that someone like him gets lucky? Honestly, unless you're sporting the latest raiding meta mount or latest last tier heroic boss drop or gladiator mount, it's not much to be proud of (and even then, proud of pixels, really?). I see dozens and dozens of people every single time I log on in cities on Ashes/Onyxian Drake/all Cataclysm drakes etc, what's there to be proud of? It doesn't even remotely make you stand out from the crowd any more anyway. So what is the harm in having these mounts go for obscene amounts of gold on the BMAH? One more, one less, it hardly matters. Someone on my server paid 999,999g for the Onyxian Drake, good on them, they probably really wanted it. I got mine after more than 200 Onyxia kills, it still felt satisfying and it didn't bother me that someone bought theirs.
Certain 5.2 heroic items can and will be put on the BMAH, too early to know which ones exactly, but some have definitely shown up on the PTR.
They may not be listed but I have seen both Invincible and Mimirons head on the BMAH on my server Borean Tundra.-BlacklichBT
It is from TCG, there are 2 - the model is not unique.
I have seen a heroic gear of ilvl 566 spawn on the AH as well, along with grievous gladiator gear. There are probably others if that was there. Also, one of the companions of rare drops (emerald whelpling) was only at 1900 bid when I saw it, which contradicts some info around that all companions are 10k starting bid.
Although not listed, I once saw the Magic Rooster mount on the BMAH. It's probably best that I never own that mount though, for the same reason I want it more than any other mount. I would have to make a macro to shout "YOU CAN'T RIDE MY COC..." ...you know, rooster.
