    I personally haven't bought one yet, but one went for 12k on my server and had the Blue Proto-Drake.

    They seem kind of pointless, I mean they can only have items that weren't bid on, not just a random item from the BMAH. Odds of getting something worthless is really high, because any good item (rare mounts, good gear, etc.) will have sold for something. Even on low pop realms, if a rare mount shows up someone is definitely going to buy it, so there's really no way you'll ever get a mount out of the container. You could probably get gear sometimes, but even so odds are high it won't be gear for your class and it'll be BoP anyway. I really can't see buying these, even if you're basically at gold cap you could always find something more useful to buy.

    WRONG! Those are the BEST discussions!

    except for the fact that that's entirely wrong. it can have anything from the list of items that have a chance to be on black market. it is NOT a box containing "only things that weren't bid on"

    the flavor text on the containers is just that.... flavor text

    they can contain anything found on the BMAH

    No, the flavour text is indicating something that was "not picked up".
    That is not the same as something not receiving a bid.
    "An item sold at a previous auction that was never picked up by the winning bidder. Buyer beware."
    I simply believe it to be a random item.
    A lucky dip as such.

    There is no reason to buy this thing unless you got nothing else to do with the millions of gold sitting in your bank.

    It should at least be BoA so you can give gear you can't use to your alts. And they should remove the cat carriers cause they're just sad.
    I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.

    Went for over 140k on Silvermoon... not sure what was in it though although the person who won wouldn't reply to any whispers and such so I'd assume it was something they could have got for 20 gold from the Auction house (Pet).

    I think if you did get that mount, for such a low price, you would at least know the name of the mount, not "The lich king mount" So unless there is some proof, I will have to decline belief on this^^

    I can see a pattern now, everyone who loses the bid is going to try and comfort themselves by saying it must have contained a 20silver pet

Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain, and I personally guarantee, the bad guys won't even wanna come out of their caves. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration... the Jericho.

    not everyone lives and breathes to know every single name of a mount
