Black Market AH

Postby NathKnave » October 28th, 2012, 10:23 pm

I just won Bananas from the Black Market AH. I just about made myself sick from nerves watching three people milling about there with (in my estimation, which turned out correct) less than 5 minutes left. So awesome seeing "You won an auction for Banana Charm" in my chat window.

Bananas today, and the Blue Drake last week, I'm having some pretty good luck with it (although, to be honest, a relatively low server population most likely helps). Anyone else able to snag any really sweet deals?

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.
Some of my best friends are imaginary…

I've yet to see a pet other than the oozling show up on the BMAH so far, it seems to be all assorted T6 and TCG novelties like the weather machine etc. Heck yesterday I went in and it said there was nothing, try back later :(

I've seen a few pets, mostly NPC bought ones, thou there was a couple of easy drop pets. Mostly I'm seeing a lot of T3 items from classic Naxx. Only one mount that I've wanted appeared, but I'm pretty sure I'll be farming Stonecore for that as soon as I'm sick of dailys. :)

No luck on my server with anything I'm missing coming up on the BMAH yet. I won a couple pieces of tier 3. Mage shoulders on my priest, shaman shoulders on my hunter (I like crossdressing my alts a lot, rogue looks like druid, druid looks like rogue, hunter looks like shaman, priest alternates between mage and lock looks). I'm keeping a look out for Mimi's Head or Invincible if they ever show up. I'm sure they will go for max bid.

Picked up the reins of the Blazing drake the other night for the minimum bid. I was shocked to see "you have won ..." when it finally ended but 100k well spent :) I'd never see / get it another way, so was happy with that!

The rocket chicken showed up on ours, it was at 60k at the time and I did not see the final bids. We've also seen teh fishing chain and the nether rocket extreme went for 110k. Not bad prices, But, I'm very interested in those pretty JC cats, so I'm holding off on the Black Market AH for now. I've also noticed that regular pet prices for TCG pets have come down a ton recently. I think the spectral tiger cub owners for example, are twitchy about the datamined one and are trying to unload. A month ago, they were 300k average, now they are 110k-150k. The lesser ones have come down to 8-11k from 30-40k. Probably makes sense, I'm not sure how many pet collectors there are now that things are account wide and there will be duplicate skins.

How much did you pay for what pets off the Black Market AH? Just curious to see if different servers effect the prices that much! Thanks!

A bit OT, but the onyxian drake showed up today on the BMAH. I logged in at 4 am server time (I'm in Europe playing on a US server so no, it wasn't actually 4 am for me:P) and it was already at max bid. So someone must be checking the BMAH and bidding up things the minute they show up for the day. Ahhh, the joy of being on a high pop server.
