    Selling Alani Mount??? Possible??

    Anyone know if it is possible to sell the Alani mount, via getting the 10 skyshards, inviting buyer into group, killing him, and then having him loot it, whether btw rolling need or master looting.

    Have you given this question much thought? Because the answer is pretty obvious.

    Yes.

    I haven't been lucky enough to try it, but I don't think she/he is tagged to you by using the crystal. I've heard of people being ganked on PvP servers in order to steal the mount after they bring her/him down.

    That got fixed a while ago. You can only tag it the normal way now, by actually hitting it. The crystal merely removes some health and ofc the shield.

    That person said "I don't think it's tagged by using the crystal"
    What got fixed? You're saying the same thing they're saying. LOL.

    It used to be that the crystal tagged the mob and some people think it still does. That got fixed. I was confirming Darsithis' suspicion.

    Skip ahead to near the end you can see that using the crystal no longer tags the mob, doesn't make much sense for it not to, but that's blizzard logic. It's pretty silly that someone would use the crystal while people are flying around the thing clearly waiting to try and tag it though...I would've waited somewhere it passes close by and made sure no one was around.

    Also, yes you can sell it, it is lootable by anyone with the tag and is able to be rolled on as well.

    Just be very quiet with it, wait until the middle of the night or something, and use the crystal when alani is somewhere in a very unpopulated area of the vale, like the lake in the northwestern corner. That's just my 2c.

    This. I know it also flies very close to the Horde city in Vale, not sure about the Alliance one, so you could tag it near there since I doubt any opposing faction members will happen by.

    I'd suggest bringing a friend or two as well just for extra security. I know I will once I get 9 more shards. =/

    Also note the fact that using the mount requires you to be exalted with the August Celestials.

    That is horrible... The crystals are rare enough, Alani should not be taggable at all... You loose the crystals, have to farm them again and then you can loose it again. I feel for that guy... That Paladin was a complete jerk (mind my manners) he was totally selfish.

    That's an understatement.

    IMO, using the crystal should go back to tagging Alani for the player who used it. It's kinda ridiculous to be able to lose a rare spawn that requires such an effort to something like this. Yes, we can be extra careful and try to remove the shield in some isolated area, but accidents and oversights can still happen.

    Ouch, so not only do you need to farm for days/weeks to get the 10 crystals, you also have to get exalted with 2 factions just to ride the thing.

    It's like this mount is rare and takes a very long time to obtain or something...

    Ahh, the "she was asking for it by wearing that skirt" reasoning.

    It's stupid that the mount can be looted by someone other than the person with the shards.

    more like "shes announcing shes a prostitute, talks it up, takes the money, and then says she isnt" argument

    not making a thing out of it, just stating that bragging before you even bring it down is really stupid

    A more simple and hassle-free way to do this would be to have a friend make an alt on a REALLY LOW POP server, have him battle.net invite you, then tag it in a Vale that is mostly empty.

    From what I read when you use the shard it damages it and tags it to you.
