I agree, the new pets are probably from Children's Week. I wonder what Grinder is? Is he in the Pet Journal yet?

Black Market looks interesting, hopefully they throw some unique items on there.

I suppose the Black Market is something they're tossing out there as a gold sink. So I doubt it will affect me, since I'd never be able to afford anything really cool, lol. I'm sure people who got the rare items "the hard way" will complain about it. Looks like it's all RNG what you'll find on it at any given time. Wamo, I agree new items would be cool, but I doubt that's what Blizz has in mind.

Someone guessed the grinder is the beaver, I don't know. Check the link in the comments here http://mop.wowhead.com/item=86563#comments for what someone thinks the aqua strider looks like http://www.wow-petopia.com/images/skin_ ... erBlue.jpg (it's cute!)

I didn't find a comment on the hopling, I'm guessing it hops, lol.

The Black Market seems weird. A lot of people will be buying lots of gold from gold farmers......

Noo! I can't have more CW pets!
I'm still two years behind on the Outland and Azeroth quests!

I think a new children's week with options will be great. :) Karma didnt even bother to do the quests this year because she finished collecting last year and has what seems to be a never ending supply of the tcg biscuits lol.

I think the pets/mounts on on the black market is an awesome idea. Just for something random and fun to be added. :) Some people have nothing better to really spend their 800,000 gold on i guess lol so why not? :) What im REALLY curious to know, is if Landro will be posting tcg mounts and pets, or just the random toys and such?

I mean, why spend 700 dollars in real life for the card, when you could just wait to bid for one in game? xD

if they keep buying stuff from the black market AH for a lot of gold blizz will probably check out their account history to check for gold delivery. what I hope for is that there is a limit on how much you can increase the current bid.

if you can only increase the current bid by a max of 10-100g then that would give more players a chance of getting items and it would prevent people from just bidding the gold cap and auto-winning the item.

I hope so. It is still so easy to bot and buy gold. You would think that after all this time, blizzard would of figured it out.

On a side note, I need to start farming massive amounts of gold on a slow server. Less chances to be outbid and now that everything is going to be Account Wide, it won't matter its on another server ;)

Do you have any alts? With account wide pets in MoP, it shouldn't matter which toon gets what, so you can get all the pets at the same time. It looks like it won't even matter what server they are on.

I don't... I've only got a main, because I spend all my time collecting things :P
I suspect that by the time MoP is out, though, I will have significantly more characters! Truth be told, I'm getting a little sick of playing a shaman. I want to be a hunter =D

I've been an altoholic from the start, lol. If I had it to do over again, I'd do different class/race combos and few duplicates, but I'm too attached to get rid of anyone now so I'm trying to get them all to 85. Hunters are fun to play, particularly since it's another way to collect pets!!! I love shamans, too, both definitely favorite classes of mine.
