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!

    you are aware you can solo Attumen right?

    Seriously though let's make Mimiron's head an example or even invincible ( which will more likely than not be thrown onto that wicked AH ) which are both 1% drop rates. it will take about 30 minutes to form a group on my server ( keep in mind I'm on frostmourne horde which is one of the most populated servers. )
    then it'll take about an hour and a half - two hours to fully clear the instance. keeping in mind that yogg0 and LoD are still not that easy to get and you need a semi competent group. Now.. I'm going to give you a rough idea how long it would take to get said mounts running the raids once a week. So I think 52 runs is a reasonable amount of kills to be able to see a mount with a 1% drop rate at least once right? well that's an entire year of running those raids. That's 104 hours of running icc ( based on average times of doing it myself. ) but 52 is a pretty lucky number to see a drop to be perfectly honest. I did 147 baron rivendare kills on my warrior before I saw a mount drop ( which is also a 1% drop rate ) and I realise this is quiet unlucky for me, but let's say it took that many lich king heroic kills to see 1 invincible.. that's almost 300 hours of running icc. this is based on 2 hour runs.

    I'm not sure what your idea of effort is, but I'd love to hear about it.

    prehaps... sitting at an AH? buying gold off gold farmers?

    This black market is a spit to the face to anyone that took the time and EFFORT into grinding dungeons and raids to earn these prestigious mounts.

    And many people might not choose to use this. I can imagine things like Invincible getting into the BMAH once a month or less. With the inflation of gold we will see in Mists those mounts will most likely end on 800k or higher stakes. It's still far from free.

    It's one mount per server. Even if they auction a mount each day (but they wont), that's ~365 mounts per server a year, not that much.

    Also, you have to bid on it, there's no buyout option and on a high pop server that price can rise through the roof pretty fast, and if a guy is willing to give one million gold for Mimis head, I salute to him and he should actually get 2 mounts and a bucket full of spit to throw at the people who farmed for it.

    Not gonna argue with you there, but I'm not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth. Also:

    WHAT? There is no way this is making it to live. Every restoration shaman would be using it.
  1. webzagar's Avatar
    I think people are freaking out over nothing. There is NO BUYOUT. That means that once in a blue moon there will be a specific rare mount listed and it will sell for insane amounts of gold to ONE PERSON. So they are still going to be exceedingly rare. Buying that much gold is a waste because you have no guarantee that you'll even win the auction. It is a very high risk proposition. WoW has a massive problem with inflation because gold is so useless. This will lower prices on normal goods for everybody once millions of gold are removed from the economy.

    Turns out I'm one of those blessed people to have obtained mimiron's head before they nerfed the drop rate.

    If this hit's live I'm assuming they're going to put current mounts and gear on this AH. So I ask, is there any point of high end raiding? when anyone can get the mount's and gear they paid for using gold they bought from a gold seller?

    Sad times are ahead my friends.
  1. aztr0's Avatar
    The people that complain about the black market are the same people with no gold to spare. Why do any of you care about what another person is riding? You play your game, they play their game. If they want to buy the mount with gold, more power to them. If you want to use your time to grind the mount in the raids then good for you. You're not paying their subscription fee, so all the QQing does nothing.

    ^ Dumbest casual comment here so far.

    This expansion I have seen around 5 million gold come my way. Previous expansion was at 1.3 million. Maybe 200k during TBC. There is no effort in gear from outdated content because normally "reserve" groups are for d-bags, you could also easily pay a guild for drops when they are relevant and guarantee it. But then you would have to give that gold that you put the EFFORT into making to some d-bag elitist who prizes their accomplishments in a video game above everything else. Similar to aforementioned quote above here.

    Sure botters and gold buyers are out there, does that mean they will be the ones profiting? Not hardly. If you only knew what Blizzard is doing right now to anyone exchanging large amounts of gold. Lots of accounts in the past 3 months have been banned with no return, whether they were legit AH players or botters or gold sellers. They will be closely watching this AH as well. It would make easy pickings for them if a mount sells for a million gold. That gives the GMs over it something to do - investigate your account and the money trail. They see your account suddenly take in a million gold from several trades with some level 10 in Org, goodbye to the account and all that gold, thanks for playing. Besides, who's actually stupid enough to spend that much real money on pixels? I know, some people.

    I don't think you will change their minds on it either. This isn't harming you, and the game isn't a game making insane demands on players anymore - we haven't seen that since pre-2.4 Burning Crusade. It's more casual based now, and gives interesting ways for everyone to enjoy the game now. Your EFFORT is recognized when you got Ashes DURING Burning Crusade, or Invincible/Mimi's Head DURING Wrath, not afterwards where you faceroll your way through the content in 30 minutes a week and don't have to deal with mechanics and hundreds of wipes people like ME had to put real effort into back then. So get over yourself. Outdated rewards and content is irrelevant, including the way you retained the rewards.

    This guy gets it. More people need to see this...

    I have a better fix, let me sell those mounts on the AH with no buyout. I don't mind farming them for myself or letting someone buy them off the BMAH, but I don't see a reason not to just let them be BoE and let me sell them on the AH. Well beyond gold farmers etc, but I don't see that as a problem anyways because the BMAH is basically going to make Gold Sellers more money. Sure you CAN get a ban, but its like anything illegal anywhere else, people will still do it and a large portion will get away with it.

    I would totally farm Ashes and sell it for a massive pile of gold, or Mims head, Attunemen etc.
