Made it to the top 100 on wcp ...

 

... held back slightly by Spirit of Competition (fml), Murky (£3,000+? really!?). Mini-Tyrael (£1,000+ really!?)

 

... and a mad merchant pet at 1,000,000g !!!!

 

When Blizzard are selling in-game pets for the token equivalent of over £150 then something is very, very wrong with the game! I can afford it, but this naked greed is too much for my taste! (Tokens are worth 100,000g in the EU at present - they were 60k not long ago, making the pet closer to over £250 at the start of Legion!)

 

...for what is a naff, and UNLIMITED pet...

 

... I'll buy Murky for hard cash before I'll get ripped off for that reskinn!

Being addicted to this stupid game AND wanting to have some semblance of a life is hard enough. Grind is one thing, but Legion is just wearing me down. Max levelling every class I do as a matter of course, eventually, but if Blizzard expect me/us to create a dozen max-levelled, max rep, max geared mains just to get our pets/mounts, they are bloody crazy. I will walk away from the game forever before I will let my OCPD destroy my life to that level. That insane level of committment is NOT a game!

I remember getting the 2-seater mount in Wrath. That was a lot, at the time...

Ditto the two-seater mount (with xmog vendor) in Cata...

Ditto paying crazy prices in bidding wars on BMAH for TCG pets...

 

But 1,000,000g for a naff pet? 2,000,000g for a mount - That's just exploitive. Especially when it follows (unnecessarily) raising the gold cap to 10m and adding gold for ca$h tokens. That's not burning up our garrison gold resources (caused by their lack of foresight), that's naked greed!

Unlike Blingtron 4000 and 5000, the Reave/Blingtron 6000 that drops this pet is neither a toy, nor permanent. Instead engineers have to create a new Reaves Battery (5 felslate/350g ish) every time (blame the Devs!). As a result, few people see the Blingtron 6000 Gift Package (Pet ~0.1%) as even those with the module are loathe to summon him.

 

Option 1) AH (only seen it once, at 200,000g (TSM=85,000g))

 

Option 2) keep searching Group finder to see if someone has shared
