I got Bananas. I think only one other person bid. I was happy because I've always debated about that particular pet, didn't quite seem worth the cash.
It doesn't really seem to be much of a gold sink, though. Only two items were up for auction when I got Bananas, and the other one I doubt anyone wanted. Also, I think it really needs some unique items, not just old stuff. It should have a couple new lower priced items, the kind of thing that would be common enough everyone will have them eventually, just to be like a trademark for the BMAH. But, also, some seriously cool new stuff priced very high. And it would be cool if once in a while, not very often, something really rare (could be an old item or a new one) actually started out with a very low opening bid. Then you'd have a real bidding war!
I doubt I'll get much else off of the Black Market though, just because my pockets aren't very deep. While I was still trying to build up my gold again after Bananas, a Darkmoon Rabbit showed up on the Horde auction house for only 35k! I couldn't believe it. I'm guessing it was the same person who posted it like the week before for 60k, that must have expired. I had to borrow some gold from my hubby's toon but I got it! So now I'm broke and I owe hubby too boot, lol.
