    Exclamation Darkmoon Eye

    How rare is this guy exactly? I read on frontpage no one had gotten one so far but... I just got on this morning! :P
    Am I really that lucky? World first maybe? Should I try selling it for copious amounts of gold?

    If you're not an obsessive pet collector, I would try selling it. Probably fetch a good 30-100k at this point.

    Yes, it is very rare. 3% chance from the bag iirc.

    From their sample, anyway. I highly doubt it'll be a world first but either way, Gz!

    Gold > some pet that will lose it's rarity by the end of the week.

    I've been selling the new raid pets for over 12k gold each on my realm. I'm a huge pet collector, but this is way to easy money.

    Darkmoon Eye might sell in the high 80k's but it depends on your realm.

    At the time of the post we had only seen a few thousand people open the bag. We are up to almost 9k now with a 1% drop rate.

    People people...

    Some like pets, some like gold.

    Personally I like both.. if I get this pet it will be a very hard choice for me to make between selling and keeping.

    If you want to sell, now would definitely be the time but personally I'd keep it because it does look pretty badass.

    You guys are bonkers. It has the same droprate as a Porcupette but is only available 7 days a month. And only 1 try a day. Porcupette has many many tries a day once you do all the tamers and has no daily limit.

    Porcupette stiill goes for 30k+ on most servers.

    I'd sell it.. 100k gold most likely.

    Probably because I'd rather sell it and put the gold to good use instead of using it to stoke my ego.

    Ego stroking is the only appropriate use for gold. Considering vanity items are the only things in this game that last longer than a few months, it makes much more sense to spend it on pets than it does to buy BOEs or whatever else you'd do with a 60k windfall.

    I've spent about two million gold on pets and mounts.

    The first week something is out is always a good time to sell it. But the darkmoon eye is very rare, and gold is fairly plentiful. Giving something like that up for gold is the kind of decision you later regret.

    So if a pet is worth, say, 10k gold the first week of the patch, but would drop down to 500g a month or so later, you wouldn't take advantage of that? As a collector, wouldn't you see that as an opportunity at least to make a good amount of gold, to afford those other pets you want from the AH?

    Sell it for a bajillion gold now, buy it for 50 copper later when everybody and their mother has it.

    This one's got some serious limiting factors. It is a 1% drop from a trainer you can only fight seven days a month, and you have to beat a team of epic level 25 pets to get the bag, so only fairly serious pet battlers can even attempt to get it.

    The people paying 10k for vanilla raid pets are the real chumps, since those items are fairly common drops, and anyone who feels like soloing old raids can farm a few up.

    Yeah because everyone will have it eventually (sarcasm). You can do daily 84 times a YEAR, so on average that amounts to you getting 2 pets in one YEAR, if you do the daily every given chance. Considering majority of the playerbase doesn't do the daily, it will remain rare. Possibly more rare than epic pet from STV or darkmoon rabbit.
