    Also, yes you can sell it, it is lootable by anyone with the tag and is able to be rolled on as well.
    It's quite clear in the video that the nameplate turns grey, meaning he didn't get the tag. You can also see the lightning beam (crystal animation) coming from the other direction. Looks like this person was just one second too late.

    The lightning animation you refer to (orange) is the Alani's actual attack. The blue lightning is from the crystal.

    I suspect that if indeed the crystal does dmg, it applies a debuff, which first removes the shield, then has a a dot component that ticks after a second or so (like mind flay.)

    This would probably give a window of time bewteen the debuff going into effect, and the lightning actually doing damage, thereby granting the tag.
    The paladin (more likely the moonkin) was probably spamming judgement/moonfire, which does instant damage.

    The crystal is indeed supposed to tag Alani to you, i believe that is the entire point of it taking health out. Dude will probably get his mount. As for selling it you can.

    If you look real close at 8:20 you will see that it was druids sunfire that tagged him first not pally. Hopefully person who farmed 10 shards gets the mount

    Here is how you do it:
    1. Farm the Crystal
    2. Invite buyer to group and set to Master Loot
    3. Use crystal and YOU kill the mob, they can help if they want to.
    4. Open trade with them and expect them to put in the agreed upon amount.
    5. Master Loot the mount to them.
    6. If you fail to kill the mob, then YOU are S.O.L

    There are other methods of doing this that change around the specifics, but this is the best way to make sure you don't get shafted.

    why was the dude trying to kill Alani at 3 PM? To be safe from tagging/ganking or whatever, do it around 5-6 AM or something

    it's blizzard's faut for changing the tag rule with the crystal, people who read the guides assumed it would tag it and it should have remained so

    Yeah because obviously everyone can be online on WoW to kill a dragon at 5 AM.

    you say 5am like he meant you have to do it then, he was suggesting a less busy time, and since this guy had said in his video he had been farming almost non stop, that time is entirely plausible to use

    dont take things so literally

    That video is hilarious. Why would you do that in the open when it literally travels to every remote location on the map. Idiot got owned.

    are you saying that a full grown man or woman can't set an alarm and wake up a few hours early for 10 minutes to kill a dragon away from the prying eyes of jerks? i guess if you work graveyard shift it could be difficult but even then you've got days off....

    This sentence is contradicting itself
    full grown man <> set an alarm and wake up a few hours early for 10 minutes to kill a dragon

    I feel sorry for the item getting ninjad but seriously the guy is spamming /1 before he's even tagged the mob, it's his own fault.

    I have to assume this is a bug since the intent here seemed to be that rare campers couldn't be cut-throated by people just passing through. If it's not a bug, lose the crystals and put her on a rare spawn timer so people can go back to trying to screw each other over at spawn spots.

    No. It's most definitely not his fault. The crystal was supposed to instantly tag the mob. It didn't, and as such - he wasn't at fault at all.

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    Funnily enough there are plenty of people in the vale who know something about tagging that the majority of us dont. I was out dpsing some other players on npcs in the vale but they still stole my tags.

    They seemed like they were farmers at it 24/7 but i found it weird how I was doing more than 20% dmg on my first shot yet losing tags. If these guys were around I was very likely to lose tags against them even if they were under geared and doing less damage on mobs compared to me.
