Re: What's the best deal you got on a pet from Auction House

Last week I got the Crawling Claw for 5,000g. My friend and fellow pet collector keeps saying "I still can't believe you got the Claw for 5k." Like the person on the first page said (who got one for 1k), I think the auction poster meant to put a zero after that 5 and sell it for 50k, because the lowest price claw on there is 65k, and I've seen them listed for as high as 100k.

The week before I got the claw I saw Animus for 4,000g. I hesitated on buying it, debating with myself whether I wanted to spend that much on a pet. I went back about half an hour later and as I feared, it sold that fast! So when I saw the claw for 5k I jumped on it ASAP!

I leveled him to 25 in the two days following the purchase. And for some odd reason I keep him summoned more than other pets. He's fun to use the pet biscuit on. And I named him "Theo Switcheroo", for obvious reasons. ;^)

This isn't a deal I got; it's more of the deal some stupid auction house seller never got from me.

I have a H/H Ruby Droplet that I farmed. I wanted a H/P so I can get better returns from Absorb, so I saw one on AH for about 7k. I sent the seller in game mail that I was willing to trade him my ruby, and give him an additional 2k for the trade. He could make an additional 2k and still sell a Ruby Droplet on AH for whatever he wants.

I sent him an in game mail message/offer two times, and waited a few days, and he never responded. Everyone I spoke to said he would be a complete moron if he didn't accept that deal. Well... moron!

Now I decide I want to keep my H/H and farm up another Ruby Droplet. If I get an H/P that will be great. If I get another breed I will just sell it on AH and buy the one I want. But that AH seller lost a good deal to make an easy 2k.

It's been a few weeks of farming now and a 2nd Ruby Droplet is alluding me more than the 1st, which dropped in about four days.

You can pick them up on the busy servers for 400-500 gold easily. I think I've grabbed a few in the 200 gold range.

Managed to get the [pet]Nightsaber Cub[/pet] for 300g on Twisting Nether EU Horde side, pretty sure someone missed some 0's for that one :)

I just picked up a [pet]Hippogryph Hatchling[/pet] for 21k which I think would be a pretty good deal already but I think the situation makes it an even better deal.

1) it was on a medium pop server that I play the AH on so pet prices are usually higher than a high pop server and you don't usually see some of these rarer pets.
2) it was originally posted for 25k but I didn't have the gold to buy it and it actually failed to sell and got re-listed at 21k which is when I pounced on it.
3) I still needed it for my collection =)

Yesterday I lucked into a [pet]Rotten Little Helper[/pet] for 2k on Madoran Horde.

Prior to that, my best AH deal was a p/p [pet]Spineclaw Crab[/pet] for 5k on Hyjal Alliance.

It's fun to see how many bargains you can get from the AH when you're lucky enough... :D

Still hoping to come across a relatively cheap Tuskarr Kite really... :|

I've gotten lucky with Crawling Claw twice this week... 5k on my alliance server, 2.5k on my horde server. I'm paranoid that I'm on the front end of a wave of illicitly manufactured claws!!!

I just picked up an [pet]Emerald Whelpling[/pet] for 400g on Silvermoon Horde side. Didn't even think twice about buying it, even though I have one (that I paid around 20 times that amount for!).

Earlier this week I picked up several pets that had been battlestoned to rare and leveled to 25, for 1090G each, like those Argent Tournament pets. I thought that was pretty good deal.

And I thought getting it for 12.5k was a deal. :P

I got an unlearned [pet]Rotten Little Helper[/pet] for 800g. Just as well, since I still haven't got one from the stolen present. The next lowest price I've seen on either side of my server has been closer to 10k.
