I have 2 skyshards.. on 2 different characters
Anyways, even if I did have 1m+ gold I don't think I'd buy it. It's just a mount and I'll get it eventually.
Well I farmed all the crystals in easily less than a week, but even then I'd never sell it. Gold means nothing to me in this game. I enjoy getting cool stuff. To me, that's fun.
To all the people saying Alar is unique........Dark phoenix begs to differ.......
Sold one yesterday for 250k. The guys wife is buying one from my guildy later on tonight or tomorrow.
I spent about 2 days worth of time to obtain all 10 shards.
I wasn't expecting to farm for the shards, until I looted one from a Mogu during a golden lotus daily.
The second one came from a party member, he passed it to me.
The third was from the Vale Treasure Box.
Shards 4 to 10 was from 16 hours of grinding sprites. (two 8 hour sessions.)
Currently am revered with the Celestials so Ive got about 17 days to go.
Unless there are extra dailies at revered?
They have about the same drop rate and Ashes doesn't have to drop 10 times to get it so Alani is actually much much more rare.
Al'ar is easily soloable by a few classes and 2-3mannable by a few others, it's not even a rare thing to have anymore.
OT: I wouldn't sell it if I had the crystals because I'd rather have the mount.
Your anecdotal evidence of 3 dropping in one day does not counter the fact that it's a 0.x% drop rate. That aside, I'd never sell my mount, nor buy it, I prefer to work for what I want.
