Pricing

I have two terrible turnips both are lvl 20. I am going to sell one but I want to know what you all think a lvl 20 rare pet is worth...

I honestly don't see how a leveled pet is worth much more than a level 1. Any given day that I do Pandaland tamers I get 3-4 pets to level 25. That's minimal time investment compared to the 15-20k increase in price I see on the AH for leveled pets. Do these only sell to people who don't know they can't add them to their journal until they have a pet of equal or higher level?


No idea what the turnip goes for. I got mine through the farm and haven't seen a second yet.

Honestly like the other person said not any more than what normal ones go for on your realm. 25 may get a small premium becauee they dont have to level it at all - but 20 no.

There is some value, though how much I could not say. I would say someone just starting to tame with no high level pets with a bunch of gold burning a hole in the pocket. Though 25 would sell better.

I know when I first started I entertained the thought of just buying some high level ones but never really looked because I figured it would be out of range for my Coin Flow. I did it the hard way, leveled up 3 pets at the same time from 1 to 25. Then used those 3 to capture more higher level and level up some I wanted at higher levels.

Good Luck,

If you learn a lvl 25 battle pet, doesn't it lose some lvls? Never done it, but I think so.
To learn a pet you have to already have a pet that lvl or higher FYI.

And I agree with the other posters, lvl 20 is pretty easy. I wouldn't charge much more if any.

I think the pet pricing depends on your realm. I have seen level 25 pets go for 3x the amount of a level 1. But, these pets are the more popular pets that are not easy to obtain ie: Disgusting Oozeling, Lumpy etc. I don't know if that will help you or not.

Seen them listed, or actually confirmed the sale happened? I'm interested as here highly priced lvl25 versions have rotted on the AH.

Just for reference, I play on a high pop server and I just picked up a lvl 1 Terrible Turnip for 185g. I doubt anyone here would pay much more for a lvl 20 one!

I know the realms vary quite a bit, but on mine there are usually several Turnips on the AH for less than 100g. Demand goes down, supply keeps going up.

My input and opinion, is that if someone knew what you had, they probably at this stage of the game already have one. Leveling a pet is half the fun, for pet battlers, and for non pet battlers, they could care less what level the pet is.
As far as level 20 vs level 1 vs level 25, go with level 24.
Why?
Because it would make 'Pro pet mob' achievement that much easier.
A level 25 pet is useless for the achievement, as you need to LEVEL the pet to 25, not acquire it at 25.
