Surprised no one mentioned how this may push casual players to try to buy gold.
damn tcg loot :/
Surprised no one mentioned how this may push casual players to try to buy gold.Honestly I didn't even think about that. I do think tis will make gold sellers appear more now that you say this.
(saw this)= YES! finally gonna get my ragnaros mount(3 seconds later)= oh...wait...nvm
People are just going to start buying gold from farmers.
I don't understand why people are QQing... almost everything rare will be going for probably no less than 100kg which most wow players don't have to spare.
lol Chinese gold farmers are going to LOVE THIS! :D
lol Chinese gold farmers are going to LOVE THIS! :DNo, they really won't; most of the items are BoP after all.

Now add to that the posibility of having rare mounts and BiS gear without farming. That's gonna ramp up the value of gold up to eleven, giving extra incentive for gold farmers to sell gold a lot.Moderated
Not digging this one bit. Something just isn't sitting right.
Are these going to be standard Auctions? I.E. 48 Hours 24 Hours 12Hours for a set time or when the items are put into the Black market is the timer going to be random?I'll spend gold on a few things but alot of things I'll ether farm if possible on go without. For those prices. 10-20k starter prices is a little over kill in my book for a starter price.
I think a lot of people are going to be surprised when this goes live. There are professional farmers with several millions gold. A lot of casuals are thinking they will score a mount for 20,000g when I can see the more wanted one go for well over a million each.
This is great! Now I can get all the mounts and weps iv always wanted!. Thanks blizzard :)!
Blizzard im sorry, but if youre trying to make money, why in the world would you even include TCG items ? You make soo much money off of people buying cards specifically for the loot. Just seems like a poor decision to incorporate vanity items that are bought, into the game to buy with gold. I can see many TCG collectors being incredibly angry about this.
Nice. Now maybe I can try to get some things I wasnt able to get before they was taken out of the game or other.
As it is, I'm already paying my wow subscription with gold, and will buy MoP with gold as well, imagine how much will gold be appreciated once you can get even rarer stuff with it.I hate to be a grouch but really someone with your reputation should not be posting this type of thing.Blizzard does not recognize any purported transfers of virtual property executed outside of the Game, or the purported sale, gift or trade in the “real world” of anything that appears or originates in the Game. Accordingly, you may not sell in-game items or currency for “real” money, or exchange those items or currency for value outside of the Game.
This is probably the worst idea blizz has ever had. If you get a rare mount gratz. But when u got all this stuff up on the ah its pretty much prompting people to buy gold and basically give up on old content. These should be off base luck not some stupid gold scheme.

You just probably buy gold and whine when u dont get a mount for the 20th time. Honestly this takes the fun and enjoyment out of obtaining a mount. When i got ashes of alar i was pretty happy. Now ive got some badiator with store bought gold getting this for nothing =P
So, now they're taking even more fun out of having super-rare items, as everyone can now get them...I bought 57 TBC TCG booster packs, and just one of them contained a Picnic Basket... Tsk... Now all the rich boys out there will just have everything that other people worked so hard to obtain. Ashes of Al'ar? For real? Tier 3 items? Great, those who still have their tier 3 are %^&*in' proud of having it, as it's a relic from classic, they really shouldn't bring it back. They have earned it - not those who've bought a billion gold from chinese gold farmers, or bought materials from AH to make something and re-sell it.How about Corrupted Ashbringer? Will we see that on BMAH aswell? -.-
