The seller would open the mail (and pay the COD) and when opening the gift, the item he wanted was not inside.

    Was quite a common scam in Vanilla but no idea if wrapping items on gifts is still possible currently

    Didn't but the gold, Just making money with buying low and selling high + dailies, have had 100k+ laying around since 4.2 when flasks on my server blasted through the roof and earned me 10k a week for a couple of weeks.

    Never bought a spectral tiger though, It's my goal of the gold game (if that makes sense) and the only reason i started maknig gold to begin with.

    I'm pretty sure there are a lot of restrictions on wrapping items, but you can still put a blacksmithing hammer in it, and stuff like that. :P

    When you finish remaking all that gold, remember, just buy the item in-game, don't break the TOS trying to buy a code.

    I thought it was only against ToS to buy stuff from the blizzard store, not codes from TCG mounts

    fuck.

    I will. thank you
    You're not allowed to buy ANY real world thing for in-game gold, regardless of whether or not it's WoW related.

    "Accordingly, you may not sell in-game items or currency for “real” money, or exchange those items or currency for value outside of the Game. "

    It's impossible to sympathize with you in this situation. The mount is BoE, why exactly did you hit the "Trade" button if the mount was not on the table, so to speak?

    It's not impossible, but it is difficult. Ignorance is no fault of the beholder.

    You traded someone 100k and a tabard for an item they could use the code and redeam to get and then trade you in game? This is 100% your fault you will get no sympathy from me life is a harsh world and you learned a lesson from this i hope.

  10. #30
    Honestly i never meant to ask for sympathy, i was asking for help.

    thank you guys, the GM did reimburse my gold and tabard, told me they usually wouldn't but he was talking with a "senior" and he let him do it. ))))))

    im a wee bit confused broloth cause it looks like you said you cannot sell tcg codes or items etc a mount for in game gold which is funny because blizzard have stated themselves you could for examp go to the blizz store and purchase a guardian cub then put it on ah just like u can redeem any tcg mount or pet to b sold for in game gold the tcg mount sales have been around since vanilla but since mop and the new pet battle system u can now cage and sell all tcg pets as well all for in game gold
    Soon i shall awaken, soon i will be unleashed, soon our prophet will do what he know's he must and let me loose upon those who would dare call themselves my people's enemy's................my rise will bring fear to the heart of many the vengence of the draenei is coming those from draenor and beyond have not forgotten and we will show no mercy DEATH TO THE HORDE!!!!

    Open a ticket, the GM can backtrack any transactions you've made, and see which account / ip the character belongs to.., that being said, the outcome is dependant on what was agreed upon between the two of you.

    I was in such situation once. I got my items and the guy got a 72 hours ban. Contact blizzard - they will help you.
