MMO-Champion - Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 15689
Update: It seems that the Black Market Auction House is not enabled in this build.

Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 15689
Two patches in a week is not enough, so how about a third? If you are tired of taking part in PvP on certain maps, it looks like there is now a solution for you! ERR_PVP_BLACKLIST_CAP indicates that players will be able to blacklist maps when queuing for some type of PvP.

Black Market Auction House
The Black Market Auction House allows players to bid on special items that are not normally sold by NPCs. For example, Mei Francis normally sells mounts in Dalaran, but in this case she is auctioning Ashes of Al'ar!

The items for auction vary by server, as other servers are able to bid on Reins of the Blazing Drake, Swift White Hawkstrider, or Riding Turtle.





Armored Druid Bear Forms
Incarnation brings us yet another set of armored druid forms!

    Technically you don't buy it, you bid on it. There can only be one winner for any one auction and we don't know how often it would be. There might only be one mount a month, there might be a 5% chance for any one mount to appear on the BMAH in a given week, we don't know.

    You won't suddenly see everyone riding it though. Hell, farming the raid is probably going to be easier than winning the auction. At least on the off-chance it drops in a raid you are soloing, you are the only one who can get it. On the quite possibly rare occassion it shows up on the BMAH, you have to compete against every Horde and Alliance character on your server who wants to have that mount, plenty of which could have several times the amount of gold you have.



    This is a fantastic idea. One, it gives another, if just as difficult, avenue to get rare mounts and pets. Two, it helps reduce the amount of gold on a server. If mounts and pets are sold for appropriately large sums by the time the auction is over, this could bring the server economy back to not-so-ridiculous levels. No more stacks of ore for 500g if the total gold in the server economy has been reduced by several million each month (depending on how quick people can make it back).

    Hit the nail right on the head.

    For those QQing over the ability for someone to have paid gold on a rare auction to obtain their ashes... ask yourself: "What is it really about the mount that I'd like to preserve?" Is it the rarity? It's still going to be moderately rare (on my server I see them all the time already). Is it that someone can buy their accomplishment that you worked so hard for, going in hundreds of times before it dropped for you? Guess what: someone can go in right now and get it to drop on their first time with enough luck. It's an RNG drop, people. Quit acting like it's some sort of elitist and grand achievement.

    This isn't taking away anyone else's chance at the ashes. This is an excellent idea and will work wonders as a gold sink for those like myself with a couple million gold laying around across several guild banks and alts and no use for it.

    I will kill someone if they make the Big Love Rocket buyable. >

    Years of trying for it finally paid off for me. I will be mad if I don't get to be as unique as before. D:

    But at the same time, it depends on how fast the auctions refresh. If a new mount is only up every other day or even longer, I'm good, even if it does allow the Big Love Rocket. If it's every day or sooner, will be mad. >_>

    Well this is the thing, I see your point, but I also see the negative about it. I got quite a few rare mounts, and some are quite easy to get. Raven Lord for instance, grind the Sethekk Halls HC a few times, and you get it easily. So it doesn't really matter if someone buys it at the BM or grind it. But you can see gear that you can't obtain anymore, if this is the same for mounts, I might find it a bit crappy to be honest. I mean, I got the Zulian Tiger, which I still love alot. It would be quite crappy if it's on the BM. Or the archaeology bug, I grinded many hours and hours to get it, and if people would just be able to buy it.. I don't know. We'll have to see how this all turns out.

    black market... say good bye to farming content and feeling a sense of value of owning certain things because the game just got more casual. I predict a surplus in chinese gold selling markets in the coming year.

    so basically pver's win again here on the black market ah since pvpers dnt have money gj blizzard,
  1. Eclypse's Avatar
    The Black Market AH isn't a bad idea overall... problem is that since Blizz is far from solving gold buying, items dupped problems atm, the majority of the people with resources to buy x rare mounts/items in that AH are mostly abusers of those 2 things. Ofc there are people swimming in gold from legit ways, but most aren't. So when u go try and get 1 or more of those rare items, someone that made several caps from dupped mounts, will just lol at u!
    Without those problems, then the AH would be a nice gold dump, but as things are, it's just a reward for people that sold dupped stuff for months!

    You can "farm" ashes once a week. You can farm Deathcharger hundreds of times a day.

    Can't say I like the AH thing - the content will be easy enough to solo with the increased level cap, why not just leave it at that? This is just going to promote gold selling.

    And to everyone complaining about "special snowflakes", why can't people have things you don't have? You're just as bad, if not worse. We have a word for it, Spite, and I'd much rather be a "special snowflake" than spiteful.
