Am I crazy, or did I find an insane bargain?

Post by Wolfson » August 19th, 2014, 9:20 pm

So I've been keeping an eye on the AH for the last couple of weeks looking to see if a Spineclaw Crab would pop up. Then today, one did...for 125g. One hundred twenty-five and 00/100 gold. Considering that is one of the rarest and hardest-to-farm pets on Timeless Isle, and is pretty solid in battle, I would think it should sell for a ton more. It was only the H/H breed rather than P/P, but still.

What prices do you normally see for Spineclaw Crab, and am I correct that this one was insanely underpriced?

That's a pretty awesome deal.
The best I've done on one is a guy selling one in trade "pst for price" "how much" "200g" "yes please!". I snagged a couple for 3k as well. 125g is an awesome deal!

Definitely a good deal. You can occasionally see that on pets like this. Especially when it isn't a busy AH and there aren't any listed. It was probably someone who just happened to kill it and had no idea how much of a pain it is to get the crab to spawn or that it's a rare drop.

Happens more than one thinks people don't always know what they have or he/she messed up on the price I have heard/seen many do that too.
Good reason to check ah daily never know what could be out there

Ironically, I picked up a h/h spineclaw for a good deal last night after I got home. It wasn't as good as your deal at 125g but 2.5k is still a very good price especially on a medium pop server that is usually higher priced that someplace like illidan H.

Even on Illidan Horde, they're in the 10k range.

Admittedly I've been unsubbed for a couple of months, but I've only seen the mob that drops it twice, let alone see a drop or copy of the pet on the AH. I think I'd happily pay my head for it.

I got a pet like that once, I completely forget which pet it was, but it was a pet that would sell on my server for something like 8-10k, and I saw it for 850. Someone forgot to add their 0, and I won out. Was super excited about it for about a week lol
