These are a drop from the invaders coming from the crystals spawning in zones that are under attack by Scourge. Doesn't seem to be that rare drop.
Having one in your inventory gives you "Haunted" buff and a dark untargetable ghost follows you around. You can throw the memento to other people to give the item and the ghost to them. Putting the memento into bank and taking it away makes the ghost disappear and reappear in case you need to summon it again without having to throw the memento away to someone else and potentially lose it. You also do a wave emote to your ghostly friend when you lose it; either by throwing the memento to someone else or putting it to bank.
Important note about this item is that it does not become soulbound to your character which allows you to sell it in auction house which can potentially be an insanely expensive item in future if you cannot gain them anymore after this event from anywhere. Pet collectors and many other people will be ditching out big money for these. The memento is also unique so you need to store them on your alts or in circulate them from alt to alt through mail box to store multiples. It can be a very good and profitable idea to farm this during this event and store for the future.
The "pet" summoned by having this item in your inventory cannot be targeted and has no name above it, however using a Paladin's Sense Undead ability the mob is named 'Scourge Haunt'.
The throwed balls' speed is slightly slower than an epic mount. Therefore I and my mate was able to attach around 20 flying memento balls behind me:)
20.8.2016 @ Legion pre-patch 7.0.3:
As of right now, if you do not have a non-combat (battle) pet out, the item (still) gives you a 15 second buff called
when it enters your inventory, either by someone throwing it to you, or by you taking it out from your bank, and then periodically while it stays in your inventory.
The black, translucent haunt will then appear, and start following you. After 15 seconds, the buff will run out, and the haunt will die and disappear. If you bring out a non-combat pet while the haunt is following you and the buff is active, the haunt will disappear without dying, but the buff will remain and run down to zero. If the item enters your inventory, or tries to proc while you have a non-combat pet out, you will not get the buff, and the haunt will not appear.
Future patches may, obviously, change the behavior of the haunt, so bear that in mind.
The aforementioned whispers are not from this object but from the quest object-- dual-plagued brain and whatever the Alliance equivalent is.
Be careful in throwing this to other players. Because they are unique, if you throw it to someone who already has one in their inventory, yours will dissapear.
Also catching this or removing from the bank triggers the /cower animation.
I wonder if something more sinister is going to happen with these as the invasion continues- seems like a rather odd drop...
This is rather a nice
for a rogue to have: shadow of death and all that. Stealthing makes the ghost disappear, but coming out of stealth does not make it reappear. It only reappeared when I relogged.
Can anyone confirm or deny the rumors that this disappears if it it changes hands (including being placed in the bank) more than 3 or 5 times or so?
Be wary, you can only do this a few times before your memento disappears.
can anyone else confirm this?
This has been categorized as a combat pet.
I am wondering if it will begin to attack anything after a certain event happens.
I used to throw my momento to my friend who also has one to 'refresh' my ghost when it dissappears for one reason or another, like taking out a diff cosmetic pet. I still am using the same original one I got, never dissappeared on me, and I've done it a few times atleast.
Edit: To be specific. Whenever I threw it to my buddy who already had one, his char would automatic throw one back.
I have heard that each time you use the momento it has a chance of dissappearing, so I must admit I have stopped using this method. I've decided to just leave it in my inventory, sometimes I have the shade, sometimes I don't. It would be cool if it showed up with a bit stricter rules, like re-spawning when a diff cosmetic pet is put away, but I like the flavor.
I have one in my inventory, but can't see a wraith, although the buff is up. Is there a problem with hunters having their pet out?
As far as my personal experience could test... the shade does not dissapear when the wearer of the 'Haunted Memento' goes stealth.
Tested 3 times in Warsong and I found that rogues are more easy to track because they have a shade behind them ;).
May be someone else can confirm this, because the whole three times i was with the "Detect Invisibility" Buff.
Thanks in advance.
Can anyone tell me about those whispers?
Like: My master has got a message for you.
A lot of my friend keep getting them, but i only had them for like 1 day and i cant get them back.
they seem to be from the sade, but he doesnt talk to me anymore.
also why is it that some of teh sahdes are so large and mine always seems to stay small?
Dran Female char. saw a gnome with a huge shade.
The best things I find about the shade is that it isn't targettable and doesn't follow you close enough to clog up the screen, so it never becomes a nuisance.
Also, in my opinion, this makes a great flavor item for a death knight with its undead theme and background. I intend to roll a DK on an RP-PvP server (on which I only have a level 64 hunter made specifically to unlock DKs and a bank alt), and I managed to get one for free thanks to a mage who was farming the undeads (though the level 69 undeads *were* soloable, given enough time). Later on I found one for 5g on the AH, which I may sell in the future.
On my main's server I kept one for my shadow priest and warlock, which I also think are a good match for the shade (although to a lesser extent), one in case I decide to make a DK there too, and another to sell. I foresee these selling for *a lot* if they never become available again, so grab them while you still can!
can i die and Haunted Memento Ghost save?
Does it drop like really often? like between 10-20 kills? and are the mobs hard to kill becaise people get in groups to kill them
This, my friends, is the perfect item for your Death Knight character :)
I hope blizzard will make the ghost faster, because i really wish to have my shadow buddy always with me.
If you think it is a good idea help me,
if you play on US make a post on suggestion forum, if you are from eu post a reply here
As of patch 3.0.3, the bankers/autioneers no longer dissapear when you give the item to them. :|
Pet items like
Papa Hummel's Old-Fashioned Pet Biscuit
and the pet leash don't work on the ghost that follows you around, but interestingly enough, they do highlight the shade when you hover your cursor over it while trying to apply the item.
Bought a Rope Pet Leash in dalaran for companions.
Tried to use it on scourge haunt because it sempt like a companion.
Couldn't actually target it as we all know.
But when i right clicked the leash, and mouse-overed the scourge haunt, the UI mouseover target showed it as being level 1 undead, with no guild title area name such as
or whatever that totem one is... i think its
Try it yourself!
Used this on a different post. I MADE IT.
I suppose since it's already on here I found a simpler way and a way without TCG cards.
Also I found this out without seeing this post previously.
Also this was to Havitech, but it was also kind of a comment alone.
Remeber if you lost it or sold it by mistake, Blizzard can restore it for you.
NOTE: only if has been less then 3 days since you lost it
I've already had a few arena matches on my rogue where I've been able to get an easy opener against stealth teams because I could see someone's ghost following them around. If you're queuing matches, get rid of the thing.
Death Knights can actually use Death Coil on them by first using Death Coil before hovering the mouse over the memento. It will say "Scourge Haunt" for a few secs before disappearing. You can actually heal your memento.
While normally untargettable, you CAN use a
on a Haunt. Make sure you don't have a target selected, use the candle, mouse over the Haunt, then click. A red and gold firework should shoot at the Haunt. Lots of fun watching a ghost with fireworks exploding from him; and no, it doesn't hurt the haunt.
Was going to buy 1 but the cheapest was 99g the most was 250g only 3 of them on the AH on my server...prolly should have kept mine when I got them =/
This item is no longer obtainable outside the owners of it during the "Scourge Invasion" world event that took place just before the release of WoTLK. Check your AH for it and get lucky!
I personally enjoy the company of my ghost everywhere and he shares all my achievements :D!
Truly a unique item in World of Warcraft.
what does happen if you summon your small pet? does the ghost disappear or does it keep following you?
Just wondering if anyone knows the worth of this item on the AH. Let me know if you've found a solid price tag.
It´s just misses of Starcraft or do this one look like Dark Templar ?
its not working when i put it in the bank, ive tried two different bankers and its not working. meaning that this was fixed
Since the ghost spawns near me whenever I teleport or login, it sometimes spawns in some fairly strange ways. My favorite is when I log in when flying and see the ghost plummet impassively to the ground or find a perch I wouldn't have thought of. Even funnier when I take my
, end up far in the air, and we both fall!
i don't know who's crazy enough to pay for it, but on arathor the bloody things have been going between 900-1800g
I'm a lucky bastard, I got 2, 1 on my main and 1 on an alt. And no way i'm gonna sell it, I wanna have 1 extra in case I lose my memento. That ghost has followed me for half a year now and I never get tired of it. I love reactions from people about my ghost and I tell them to hug it! =)
I just accidently right clicked the haunted memento in my bag that I have carried since prerelease of WoLK and it disappeared entirely from my bag. I am a horde hunter and I was inspecting a gnome warlock & I believe it transfered to that character which was NOT my intent. I have turned in a GM ticket but do not know if they'll fix it or not. I am so upset !
curently going for 13k on my server hehe btw will the event ever come back?
I loved it when there were zombies running around the cities, I spent most of my time as a zombie turning everyone and everything I can :D good fun
These Haunted Memento's are going for over 8k on my realm. Freaking nuts.
...Luckilly every one of my toons has one :3
i use to have this but my friend said can i have it for awhile and hasnt gaven back for 1 year i really got used lol
Can you still get it?
Got a few of these, sold them for 800g each- Ah. Good times. Kept one for me, of course, they've got to be the coolest companion around.
Does this Item make you Haunted?
Four of them for sale in the auction house for about 600-800g on Frostmorne.
Death Knight can
Elixir of Detect Undead
can be used on
Since Patch 3.3.0 (22 Jan 2010),
can only be targeted by first casting the spell with no target, and then
(This also works with other NPCs that Blizz meant to be untargetable. You need to know/guess their name ofcourse)
This item does not expire, for those wondering.
Just bought one for 1200g. After not seeing any for sale in some time, and/or for less than 8k, I figured it was a steal. Can't see the point in lowballing items like this when there's no other way to obtain them these days.
All in all, I came out of this transaction satisfied. Your results may vary.
Strelnikov, Kel'Thuzad (US).
going for 2000g on my server
I'm seeing the price rocketing up all the time, but I aint selling until it's 10k
Just sold mine, wich was kinda sad after 1.5 years of friendship ):. But I got 1500g for it :D
lawl, I just bought one on auction house for 100g... was the only one listed...
I check the AH for these every day. The price varies greatly and you can buy one for cheap and resell it for a nice profit later. On my server the lowest I've seen them go was 400g once and 600g another time. I resold both for a big profit.
lucky you, they go for 8k on my server, luckily i got one free from some unlicky player dumb enough to play catch with it and misclick. well, more free #$%^ for me, lol
my scourge has seen more things that a lot of wow players, so its GS should be higher imo, also nerf the mini pet diablo, it keeps poking at it and its starting to get annoyed.
had it since the event and never took it off or thrown it.
who else thinks you should be able to lock it on you, just incase...
I was thinking about buying this item on my server for around 5k gold but i am wondering if i already have a non-combat pet out such a Mulgore hatchling will this ghost also show up while i have my pet out?
Ive just bought 1 on my server (nagrand) for 1.5k.... dunno how much they usualy sell for on my server but im willing to bet that if it isnt 1.5k, it will be higher in the future, im looking forward to my profit when i actually sell it ^^
unfortunately this momento WILL disappear if you take out a non-combat pet out =(
wow, i got mine for 600g ages ago and now i see it on ah for 20k, i dont think i will ever sell it because i know most likely ill never get one again and its just something i dont want to part with :)
I don't want to keep it in my bag's cause I'm afraid I'd click it and sent it off to some low level. if only they would put in a would you like to send this items box.
somehow i got the feeling i lost mine somewhere
Sold mine today for 5700g =) cya
What items, if any, also give a buff icon from a bag slot?
I want to collect buff icon items that do not require a slot that has useful stats. I already have precious' ribbon, and any WOTLK Tabard works for that slot.
Bought another one recently for 200g. o_O
Two others were on the AH for about 4000g. Will easily re-sell for a big profit.
So anywho..This item IS NOT available to other players that did not get it in pre-Wrath. They must have fixed the thing where you give it to a banker and he disapears- tried it and it didn't seem to work for me. Bummer... Anyways if your looking for this item the only chance you'll find it is on the Auction House or a friend. Or perhaps if somebody throws to you on accident and you want to keep it to maintain the other players misery :D
Sold this on Skywall US the otherday for 5000g O_o...
Sold that thing for 22k.. glad I have another one ;)
And to think I used to throw these to other players.
He's like a friend that will always watch out for you..
How can you even
one? i cant seem to find out where you all are getting this!
Found one of these lying around in the bank and decided to throw it on the AH to see how much I gold I could squeeze out of someone for it. Unfortunately trying to post it resulted in an internal auction error, opened a ticket and spoke to a GM who told me that it was a bug they were aware of and that I'd have to wait for a hotfix before the item would be auctionable again. This was on 16/01/11
*Checked today and the item is now auctionable again
One of these just showed up in my mailbox today from the Post Master, the guy who delivers your random satchels when you're inventory is full. Don't know if a GM was messing with me or what, but I'm happy since I just sold it for 10k :D
I don't have any regrets spending a large amount on this. It will only increase in value, and can be sold again in a year. It's like a cool, creepy investment!
I wish Blizzard could make the haunted memento a pet now, that would be cooler!
As of Patch 4.1, all non-combat pets will persist through death, portals, zoning, summons, log-off, etc. However, there is a bug associated with the Haunted Momento that will prevent other non-combat pets from persisting.
It took me far too long to realize the Haunted Momento was causing the problem, but as soon as put it in my bank, my pets began to persist as they should. I'm guessing whatever hook they used to make the pets persist was the same that was being used by the Haunted Momento.
Yah, i wish they would just make this thing into a pet, i always get scarred i'm gonna make it disappear, if it were a pet, it would be in the pet spellbook and i would never have to lose it :D
I wish i could send the suggestion to blizz directly :(
Don't throw it to someone who has one of it. Seems it is destroyed. I wished to free 1 spot and throw it to my Gf char. But she had one more in her bank and it was written "You cannot carry more of this." Hope some Gm will answer to my ticket.
They seemed to of stealthed changed the memento to make it so it is no longer able to be tossed. Fantastic change!
As of 4.1 you can no longer throw the memento. It just sits in your bags as if it was a key or necklace you can't put on. (Which would be awesome if you could)
I bought mine for 100 gold, looking to make a nice profit, and yesterday, I did, selling it for (although this is cheap) 4500g, but what was weird is that I logged on today and still have the Haunted buff and the ghost following me, im sure this will be hotfixed soon but worth taking note.
This item can no longer be thrown. Interesting that blizz would make the change so late.
Too bad they didn't make the change earlier.
I had a friend who had the memento. He threw it to me for kicks, but I already had one and it just vanished due to it being unique. He asked the GMs to replace it, and they point-blank refused.
weird thing I noticed today...I sent the memento from my mage to my paladin, and yet, several days later, every time I log onto that mage, there is still a haunt following her and she still has the haunted buff, checked and doublechecked and no one has accidentally thrown her a new one. Any thoughts?
As of Patch 4.2 (6/28/11) the haunted memento can no longer be thrown to players.
According to Blizzard representative Kaivax:
The change we made was to make the item no longer throwable. This was done to fix an exploit where players were throwing the item to transfer wealth across realms. It can be quite valuable. We decided that Haunted Memento was old enough and valuable enough that preventing it from being thrown was a reasonable compromise.
As of 4.2 the
buff no longer appears while having another pet out.
As of patch 4.2, you can no longer throw the item from player to player.
It also would appear not to have that nice ghost following you around anymore.
It doesn't appear when you have a pet out. Dismiss it and zone to get it to reappear. You can still trade it, but can no longer throw it in the battlegrounds/random dungeons. Couple that with the upcoming "Invite RealID friends to do dungeons", and one could have transferred them to other realms intentionally through friends to sell/whatnot.
So basically it's now worthless.
The change we made was to make the item no longer throwable. This was done to fix an exploit where players were throwing the item to transfer wealth across realms. It can be quite valuable.

As of patch 4.2, the glitch that occured where the Haunted Memento could be traded to another player and then both players still had the ghost buff (even though 1 player no longer owned the item) has been fixed and so this glitch no longer works.
I will miss having that little ghost follow me on 8 characters. :(
The Ghost and Haunted buff will reappear when you dismiss your current pet. Effectively it acts as a pet of its own now. If you do not have a pet summoned, your ghost and haunted buff will appear.
Also, the Haunted buff can be removed by right clicking, but the pet will not disappear.
Conversely, the ghost and buff will disappear if you summon another pet.
Just payed 4k for one of these bad boys on my server. Most were goin for 6-10k. I didnt start playin till mid Wrath, so i had no clue what they did. Now That I looked this stuff up I'm glad I spent the money. Its definitly unique. Not lettin go of this bad boy =D
Hey, I just wanted to add like all the other bazillion patch 4.2 posters by saying, You can't throw this damn thing anymore. But you can still trade it since its still not BoP.
there is a glitch with the pet since patch 4.2....if you do not have the ghost following you, simply summon any pet companion (like a snake or something), then desummon, and you will have a ghost following you
I had same thing as some of the other posters about a year ago...threw it to a friend who had one in the bank, mine disappeared...went through 4 GMs trying to get it back before they threatened to punish me if I ticketed it again...
Made me a very sad panda for a while =(
Yay for the change so it cannot be thrown at least!
I LOVE MY HAUNTED MEMENTO! =D
Going for about 7000 g atm on an RP server. Probably will be much cheaper on others though!
I have noticed that when i mount on any cataclysm mount i.e. vial of the sands that the buff goes away, this includes ground mounts.
My memento buff has also been going away when I mount. Just tried it on my alt because I'm trying to get the inkeepers daughter to proc on my main since it stopped doing that with the memento in my bags.
I'm really glad they took way the "Use: Throw to a friendly player." thing off it. I was always kind of nervous I was going to accidentally throw it to someone and lose it, since its worth so much now.
If anyone was still wondering about the bug where the buff and ghoulie go away when you mount up, it's now fixed on ptr.
Encountered an odd bug with this with the new patch today (4.3), it seems the shade's speed has been reduced and he can no longer keep up with me even unmounted on the ground, forcing him to constantly respawn, and every time he does i /cower for a sec. Minor, but annoying, especially when im mounted because it happens every few seconds.
As of 4.3 the bug which would make your Haunted buff go away if you were on a flying mount has now been fixed. Since Cataclysm's release if you were not a druid in flying form your Haunted buff would disappear and not reappear until you rezoned or something similar if you lifted off the ground on a flying mount.
Also at some point during Cataclysm they made it so if you summoned a pet your Haunted buff would disappear and not reappear if you dismissed your pet. This has been slightly tuned to make it so if your summon a pet, your Haunted buff disappears, but if you dismiss your pet your buff will then reappear =)
As of 4.3 there appears to be a glitch with having this in your inventory and attempting to sit and barber's chair. You will sit, then suddenly stand back up and cower emote.
As of Patch 4.3 the shade seems to be causing a multitude of problems. I've been noticing flight path mounts stalling as my character does the cower animation from the shade trying to catch up. I also can't get a haircut because my character cowers every time I sit down in the barber seat. Of course that could also just mean my character is afraid of getting his haircut but I think I'll go with the former.
Little known fact: in patch 4.3 when sitting in a chair or on a flying mount that is off the ground, if the momento is in your bags it will force your character to do a momentary /cower emote. This can be quite amusing when trying to change your look at the barber as the cower animation will bring you out of the chair within 2-3 seconds.
<3 my Haunted Momento.
It was driving me mad that every time I took a bird flight, the bird would loose it's sense of direction for some reason. It seemed to go round in circles on every zone boundary (adding to the time taken to fly anywhere). Eventually tracked it down to this and so the momento is now in the bank - shame.
Blizz - please fix as no self respecting warlock should be without a minion from the afterlife.....
Current bug with this item: Sitting down on a barbershop chair, the haunted memento will cause your character to stand up making you unable to fix your hair.
For anyone curious, 4.3.2 did not fix any of the issues with this item.
The cower effect this item has does not seem to let my character use the barber chair.
For those experiencing /cower issue with this item there is a post on the WoW Forum
Bug Random /cower
I dont know if anyones mentioned this or not, but when you fly from zone to zone, when the rider has outran your haunt and the haunt reapears, look away from your screen.lol
Haunted Memento seems to bug me out, whenever I'm on a flight path now the Wyvern seems to stop and spin because it's waiting for the ghost to catch up. If you notice this happening, chuck the Memento in your bank until later use.
Edit: Every patch I take my Memento out of the bank to see if this has been fixed. As of 5.0.4 it has (at least for me). If it still doesn't seem to have resolved itself for you, back into the bank it goes!
Can anyone please tell me? Is this item not available anymore?
Caution: Having this item in your bags may cause taxi services to be retarded!
Still not fixed in 4.3.4, the annoying /fear emotion is still there.
But now the shadow follows you on the ground, whether you''re flying or not. It's not "flying" anymore.
This item shows up in the 'Consumable' category in the auction house, but none of the sub-categories!
where would i get myself one of these?
the page says nothing..
I kept my Memento since original Scourge event, but eventually got tired of not being possible to use hairdresser or how it messed with gryphons when using flight paths. Not wanting to either sell it or occupy space in my bags/bank, I put it on Auction House for 30k, which I thought was a prohibitive price, and I was renewing the AH "deposit" every 48h with my other auctions. To my total surprisal, after several weeks, someone bought it from AH.
So this is no longer obtainable? Wow i remember having one and destroying it =/
Today's patch (5.0.4) has finally fixed the nasty effect the Haunted buff has on Flight Paths. Unfortunately, Barbershop Chairs will still eject you after a short period of siting in them. So, unless you regularly change your hair style you can carry this item around without consequence again.
Do not have this item in your inventory if you are planning to do any type of PVP. The ghost seems to disappear once you go into stealth but will reappear each time you do the /cower effect. This happens roughly every 2-3 seconds and the ghost can be seen by all players when it reappears. Because of this enemy players will roughly know your character location and can aoe the area. I've easily found other players in BGs/arenas who have this item and is the reason I do not keep it in my bag. Patch 5.0.4 seems to have fixed some problems, however I just tested the stealth bug and it is currently not fixed.
Is it just me, or has this started interrupting eating in MoP?
As of patch 5.0.5 this causes several issues in Mists of Pandaria.
You character will randomly do the "scare" emote. This cancels drinking and eating food.
Additionally, you won't be able to use the barber shop.
The main most annoying bug is the NPC Guards in Halfhill (where the cooking dailies are) will randomly attack you if select any of the vendors (doesn't matter if you are mounted, left click...etc).
It is recommended that you bank this item until it is resolved.
In patch 5.0.5 having this item in your inventory can cause the NPC Guards at Halfhill to attack you.
You can easily escape these guards by running into the phased zone surrounding your garden at Halfhill.
Once in the phased zone the guards will disappear, and you can continue your business at Halfhill.
The aggressive guards will not be present after leaving the phased area.
As stated many times above, this item can no longer be obtained. Basically this mean that this is a good item to invest your money in. The constant inflation and the rising number of people with this item quitting the game makes it even better. If you happen to find any of these for less than 20k on your AH, like i did (16.8k), and have the money to spare.
Someone just spammed trade for this for 3k. I offered 2k, he took it. Awesome, never thought I'd have one of these.
They have fixed the bug (360) when flying with Flight Masters flight paths. It no longer stops and spins in every zone! WOOHOO Blizz!
Still does the auto Cower emote, but no 360 spins!
This item should have it's own "Feat of Strength" achievement...
I'm loving that my ghost consistently photobombs my cutscenes all across pandaria :)
Man! Back in the day I had so many of these. I figured they would always be around. I would actually get pissed off when people threw them to me! If i only knew....
This "pet" is affected by
While most of the old problems with this item seem to have been fixed, I did notice one today. I seem to be unable to get a hair cut without cowering before I can change anything. Small problem, and one easily fixed, but I thought I would put it here nonetheless.
You do a /scared emote on dismount and other triggers with this thing, its funny dismounting and having a terrified look on your face.
Currently fetching 12k at its lowest on my server but I'll never sell mine, twas a gift! :D
Im probably just paranoid, but everytime i have to move this item around in my inventory, like when i get a bigger bag etc.
it feels like the item is going to disappear or fly over to another player.
This even after the removal of "throw me" from the item.
So everytime i have to do it, i recheck and triple-check my quadruple-check just to make sure i dont lose it.
I'm across 3 realms and the price of this item is A LOT Different per realm.
Realm 1 price: 25k( My main realm)
Realm 2 price: 80k
Realm 3 price: 50k
I was luckily enough to have a friend just recently come back from a long break, he quit about 1 year after LK, He had quite a few of these in his bank around 9 or so i was told. Any ways i picked one of these up off of him for around 7.5k which is well worth it, Tried to get a few more for that price to resell. but he Could only sell me 2 extras:( Ohwell.
Obviously as more players quit (Which is clear if you look at Blizzards subscription rate, dropping quite fast) These will go up in price, Hoping to be able to sell Some of my extra ones, one day, when they are worth more.
works on it
This item was a relatively easy item to obtain during a WoTLK event and cost little more than 1g but now, two expansions later this item is one of the most sought after items in game and sells for an average of 15k. Since MoP has been released this items value has dropped slightly as it's only appealing quality now is that it is unobtainable due to the face that to get the Shade to stalk you around all you need to do is have a level 18 battle pet, fly out to Deadwind pass and tame a
On any AH you can find them ranging from 10k-75k in price but people get strapped for cash and usually part with them for between 7.5k-10k.
It seems now that the Memento Ghost will not come out when you have Companion pet out, and will disappear when the pets are summoned and reappear when they are dismissed.
This is one of, if not the rarest thing I own. Now that 6.0 has announced that it is going to start arranging our bags for us and removing vanity items, I'm concerned that it will either remove this from my bag and put it in the collections tab or simply remove it from the game. I don't wish to say goodbye to that phantom that follows me around just yet. Blizz, the only trade I'll make is for a
. :P J/k, j/k.....but seriously.
As much as I love this item, the scared emote it does is a bit too frequent for me, so it's sadly in the bank of my main for the time being. My Feral druid uses his all the time though, as there's no emotes happening in animal forms. Kinda wish they'd tone down the frequency of the emote.
I have two of these, and I'd like to know how much one can sell for.
At this point, this item is simply revered as one of the top 5 unobtainable, rarest, and sought after sell able items in the game next to items such as Recipe: Thistle Tea, Dirge's Kickin Chimerak Chops, Plans: Dawn's Edge, and Ruby Shades. Im not going to tell you to "never get rid of it ever!"; If you're a collector, its a great item to have, but if you're like most, and your eyes light up with $$ when you have/obtain one of these, then! please read below
Stop selling it in the Auction House or Trade Chat!
Why? The value of this item is only as high (or low) as the price you openly advertise. Think of a player who quit during Cata and MoP and now they're returning to the game for Warlords of Draenor... (a real situation) they may have an alt with 20 of these in their bank and would be
to know you'll give them 500g each because they simply didn't know any better because you
have your 1 in the AH for 20,000g! There would be no reason for him to go out and research the price of Haunted Memento online because to him/her it was junk back then.
More often than not, you may have an average server price of 15k to 30k or more consistently for this item. That's a lot of money
the collector and gold enthusiast. But to the extremely large majority of players, they would be in shock that they could make a hefty 5k on 1 little item and would trade it without blinking. Those are the exact same players who get the "if its epic quality, its 'super OP' I want 100k for it", and "if its common (white) quality its junk, I don't know what wowhead is" and will part with it for a crazy low price because
spam trade chat and AH that its worth 30k!
When the time comes, find someone
looking for this item
someone for a large amount of money, and then you can privately make your fortune.
Make sense? :-)
I remember when these first came out long ago.
What is not talked about much is that initially they were bugged and if you put them in your bank, the banker NPC would disappear.
My guild got the all the bankers in Shattrah to despawn this way, and there was much QQ on trade chat.
I see everyone say this item is bugged. Your mount stops and turns you /cower npc's attack you and so on. Its a ghost a ghoul a haunt and what does a ghost or ghoul or haunt do to people or animals? It scares spook startle and make someone feel as tho they are being followed. I think it is doing as it should. Don't like it bank it like all the comments say.....
I think it's time to give the Scourge Haunt a buff. Like maybe a 200% speed buff? I really hope some time in the future blizz makes him the same speed as the other non-combat pet XD.
Everyone! Put in a suggestion to blizz asking them to buff his speed!
what happened with the ? Did it loose its effect. Does'nt seem to have a use or a equipp effect anymore. Bugged or intentional fix?
I know I threw at least one of these to another player the day I got them. At first they weren't unique and I had about 4-5 on my warrior. To this day, I am still defying the laws of uniqueness by having multiple on 1 character.
took me quite a while to figure out where the ghost that was following me came from >.>
It seems Blizzard has forgotten this when it comes to the toy box. Still a white object in my inventory, forever haunting me.
Do not get confused by the similar name!
This is the
for toy box. Sold by
for 90 Darkmoon Prize Tickets.
Good News Everyone.
You can now visit your local barber without being scared out of the chair!
during the Scourge Invasion back on WotLK launch, my bags went full, but I seem to had to make some space right away. For some reason I didn't found anything else to destroy, except
... and this memento still haunts me every time I see this ghost in-game.
Beware! While recovering account from a compromise right before 6.0, i asked for my memento back. The GM said they couldnt find it, so i dont get it back. Maybe linked to there now being a blue one you can buy pretty easy and they both have the same name.
Bug? You lose the buff
gives you, when you summon a battle pet or use those conjured mage pets in 6.0.3.
Has anyone heard if this will be added to the Toy Box for WoD? So far as of this patch 6.0.2 it isn't.
It would appear the item has been changed to now only summon the spirit at random intervals rather than leave it following you like an non-combat pet as of warlords release.
It Appears as though they may have changed this Unique item, Now it only gives you the (Haunted) Buff for a Few Seconds the Ghost no longer follows you around Constantly.. Now just appears for the duration of the Buff
The only thing I've managed to find on it is in their patch notes...
November 5, 2014:
effect is now a buff that can be removed by the character.
Nothing further has been said though. :( I put in a ticket, and still no response. I don't even have the buff that can be removed. I get a 15 second buff, every 30 minutes and then it's gone.
You can Ctrl - F (Command - F for Mac users) Haunted Memento to quickly get to the note.
I hope this helps.
This item has been
. It periodically gives you the Haunted buff instead of constantly now.
I've seen it pop up every half hour or so.
As of the launch of Draenor, the haunted shadow that follows you around will despawn after about 20 seconds. It then respawns roughly 5-10 min later, only to disappear again.
Strange how they changed an item that is relatively unobtainable, this far into the game's life.
Logged a ticket about this and finally got a response now, it appears they intentionally removed the follower because some people were having trouble with it on flightpaths, even though I never heard or had that glitch.
It's a shame they made this so useless now.
Response from GM about the new "feature". I'm still unsure which part of the community hated this thing. I honestly never had issues with others having it.
Regardless, WTS Haunted Memento on Aerie Peak US. :(
Edit: I also apologize for my grammatical mistake in my ticket. D:
While it is sad that the ghost isn't constantly following you, ( I loved getting comments about how you get that Buff) it is good that the Barbershop glitch won't happen anymore cause of the constant Cower emotes when you tried to sit, and same with flight paths
It is also good there is no more fear of it being Thrown
but now that it is just a Unique item maybe we can hope that it will be made into a Toy
People who had a problem with this should have simply left it in THEIR bank rather than imposing THEIR problems on unwilling participants.
I don't understand why they couldn't fix it instead of destroying the uniqueness of the item.... simply lazy.
So we now have an official reason as for why this item was changed, and that this change will not be reverted.
It was the #1 source of creature spawns within the game, which was causing server performance degradation, and during launch we changed its behavior as one of many tweaks to help recoup some server headroom. Due to the ongoing demand on the game service (and likelihood of similar demands in future expansion launches) we're not currently planning to revert it to its old behavior.
Come on blizz get off your stacks of money we pay you every month and un-nerf the Haunted Momento I loved seeing the little guy he is so cool.
Why not like he was doing anything wrong..
From haunted to cursed. This item has no effects now. In game its just a white unique item with an icon :(
I finally got my hands on one of these today, paid 11k for the thing. Only to find out the buff isn't permanant anymore. Needless to say I'm incredibly pissed off about it.
CHANGE THE MEMENTO BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS BLIZZARD!
Unfortunately, this item no longer has a permanent effect with your friendly ghost following you. It is now a buff that the player can remove and lasts for 15 seconds. The chance that the buff is applied to you is random by what I have seen.
My speculation of this is because there is also an item, namely the Haunt
Memento which when applied to a target lasts 15 minutes long and during that period every 3-4 minutes an effect will happen. One of these is a ghost (different model to our friendly shade) and happens to last around 15 seconds. Perhaps these two buffs (one being hidden ) were caught in some kind of mix up and it will eventually be fixed?
Another possibility is that it could have been temporarily halted like this much like the infamous Toy Train Set. Will we see our friendly shade again that would follow us in raids, fishing trips and more? Only time will tell.
Edit: Due to the Haunted Memento Ghost being one of the largest 'creatures' spawned in the game, it would and is better for the game's servers states for it to be reduced to a periodic 15 second summon.
I keep this item for nostalgia's sake but y'know. If it's really not worth 15k to
it certainly will be to someone else :D
The new 15s proc breaks Stealth as a Rogue. Probably breaks prowl too, but I haven't bothered to send it over to my druid to test. Guess I'll have to send it over to my warrior since it keeps breaking me out of stealth randomly in BGs which, more often than not, leaves me in a bunch of trouble.
BLIZZARD .. WE DONT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WATER THAT RIPPLES.. STOP TAKING ALL OF THE COOL STUFF OUT OF THE GAME.. shooting yourself in the damn foot.
This thing has a terrible proc rate, appearing once every 5 minutes. The only problem this thing had was that while you were mounted on a flight path your character would constantly spin around. If blizzard had deactivated this item while in flight there wouldn't have been an issue. Now this thing is pretty much useless.
Is there a way to macro or bind sound files to a proc? I know how to do it to abilities, but not random procs. I would love to add a random Corrupted Ashbringer Whisper to this this item when it procs now. Especially with Corrupted Remembrance skin in Legion.
One of the most nostalgic items in wow. Too sad that they had to nerf it because of server lags due their permanent spawning and despawning.
Edit: Sorry for my bad english. I am german.
I haven't timed it or anything, but it seems to proc more often since 7.0 dropped...
Hmm, I still have four of those. Are they still worth much?
It removes stealth from my rogue when the "buff" appears. It's gotten me killed a lot.
As of patch 7.1 you cannot throw it to other players. I've had one in my bags since I got one, and I've come to realize that I can no longer throw it to other players.
How can players get these and is it worth getting anymore?
This item is purely an item of vanity, a representation of the past. If you played in the pre-launch event, you'd know the important of it, and It would hold some form of symbolic meaning to you. A player that did not play in the past may feel like it's garbage or not worth the gold to buy one.
They can range from anywhere from 30,000-120,000 depending on the server.
Since this is not a toy, and just has a ghost follow you periodically from time to time, it doesn't really hold much value to the eyes of the newer players, especially since it is a vanity item.
Rather an item such as the
will be an item that sells up from 100,000 - and Up+ This is due to the fact that this item is a toy, it will always have symbolic meaning to any player, and only gets more expensive as time goes on due to the fact that no one can get it anymore. In the future it will probably sell for millions, but right now in Legion it will not sell for 100k+ due to the fact that everyone still has them. Perhaps in 2-5 years they'll sell for that much. It all has to deal with supply and demand. Once the supply is gone, they're gone forever. So with a limited supply, and a high demand, especially a newer demographics of wow players coming in, it will be an item that can sell for quite the amount in the future.
It is always important to reading Wowhead so that you can find out information on what to buy, and what to sell. Treat it Jim Cramer for the Stock Market if you will, that's how I look at it.
Thank you for reading my post, happy huntings!
They really need to take the time to code in a fix for this item. It's one of those things that long-term players loved so much. I get that it was bugging things, and they had to turn it off. But that was YEARS ago. Give somebody an afternoon to fix it. They'd be a hero.
If you had one of these in your inventory before the patch, the buff effect (the permanent one) was still applied. Then i made the mistake of using the character boost and then it was whisked away to the mailbox, and i lost the permabuff.
Here is what makes this item special to me.
The ghost has the exact same 3D model as
(the link is the WOTLK one, could not find the original ones)
For all of us who experienced the Vanilla Naxxramas raid in some way (i.e. before WOTLK, and even before BC), these shadows could be a pain, and gave a very special atmosphere to the dungeon.
Your very own personnal Shade of Naxxramas follower.
PS : I did not read all the comments, apoligize if it was already mentioned
EDIT 2020-02-29: same model can also be found in Stratholme
Unsure if it was changed back to it's original state as of 8.0, but I saw someone with the ghost constantly with them about 2 days ago, would someone kindly confirm or deny if it has been changed?
from what i am understanding
people abused this item intentionally as a joke
the item created an npc that was constantly up. it was the number one source of creature spawns in game. most of wow's creatures are pretty much loaded on demand or on a set spawn timer. they are not constantly up. this is why it will most likely never return to it's former state.
the item was outdated
the item crashed the servers during an expansion launch
blizzard resolved the issue.
the resolution - a toy with an actually much better effect...
I had this item on my rogue from the pre WOTLK event but I cannot find it anywhere on her anymore. Bank, bags, nowhere and I definitely didn't get rid of it. So sad. :(
Don't you guys think it is about time they do infact code in a fix and let us have the original effect of this iconic item back? I has been years and I do believe that if enough of us speak loud enough they might do something about it.
Shadowlands update: New fear sound effect and "ghostly" sound effect has been added to the PTR.
Not sure if anyone has mentioned this but if you put it in your bank and take it back out you get a buff and the ghost for 15 seconds. The buff is called 'Haunted'
As of 9.0.1 there is a fear sound effect and some kind of quiet scream, i was wondering why im hearing this.
You can have and at the same time.
I always carry in my bag
I still don't know if anyone who has already taken one can take another one. I need to confirm.
I got the momento the first year and I still carry it in my bag today. The ghost used to always follow you around, but this was nerfed now it does appear periodically for about 10 seconds or so and you hear a shadow sound before it disappear. You can no longer throw the momento either.
