The Cost of a Flawless Upgrade

Postby Iconyx » January 17th, 2013, 10:13 pm

Since Flawless Battle Stones are tough to come by, I'm wondering if anyone has "purchased" an upgrade from someone. E.g., I want Fishy upgraded, but I don't have an Aquatic stone, so I put Fishy in a cage and give it to someone with an Aquatic stone and pay them gold to use it on my pet. If you've done this, how much did it cost/what's a reasonable price?

I think it will vary depending on server, but I'd expect a fair price is about 50% of the cost of a flawless stone on your AH.

50% reflects the difficulty of the owning party selling the stone compared to listing it on the AH where the whole server looks.

Thank you, good thinking. I totally forgot that the all-type Flawless stones aren't soulbound i.e. they actually have a market price.

anyone want to trade a mechanical upgrade for my acquatic upgrade?

is that a fair upgrade? i don't even know. I know I have an aquatic stone I don't need and I have two mechanical pets that need upgrading. (three if I decide to do fluxfire feline)

Can't upgrade wild pets via trade as they can't be caged.

You're Right. I was thinking of my thundering hatchling which can be caged, and my mechanical squirrel. I just am tired of farming the fluxfire, so if an upgrade stone ever drops for mechanicals, i might even use it for that.

Just paid 2K for an Undead upgrade, with non-specific Flawless Battle-Stones going for 9K on my server (Magtheridon-US). I'm sure I could have gotten it for less.

That is becos undead stones arent worth that much, isnt really that many undeads to upgrade, same with humanoid stones.

Pretty sure Thundering Hatchling cannot be caged.

i've purchased 5 family specific upgrades from 4 different families, for 2K a piece. flawless stones appear on the AH so rarely it's hard to gauge their value- i've seen everything from 600g to 50K.
