    I wouldn't really care. Gonna make one for myself with an engineering alt and so much for that, already have mats (still 30 living steel bars and a ton of ghost iron?). Making another one would take another month anyway.

    It takes 30 days for an Engineer to make this, so selling it for less than 100-150K would be going full retard for selling it for 50K.

    I plan to make 2 at the same time on my Engineers, that way I can use one myself, and sell the other.

    Also, I guarantee you this mount will get duped, so the prices at the start will be so low that you may just either go full retard and get rid of it, or wait for the dupers to get banned/sell their stock.

    Can't see it going for above 50 past the first couple of months. There's just too many cool mounts out there. Doesn't help either that 30 Living Steel is worth about 15k gold. Wonder if it'll be cheaper next expansion. (living steel cd will probably be gone then)

    I'm learning the first one I make, so 2 months down the line it might have already crashed in price =/

    Or living steel price will go sky high precisely because all will want a mount like this.

    Well is from Engineers and only those who opt to hold out thirty days, not crafting the Cooking Bag or the Pet with their Lightning Resources. Just like DarkmoonFaire Trinkets were worth over 100k due to low Suppls also the Sky Golem may see good prize. A cool Mount + bonus envy from random people through the Internet may be well worth 150k to some.

    On the other hand, there are only few people who have more than 100 000Golds as I get astonished comments often enough when mounting up Grand Expedition yak. Not only that but we are in a Situation where there is already a ton of amazing Mounts, the 200 Mounts Achievment isn't so hard to get and more often than not people will settle with what they have rather than spending a fortune for just 1 more Mount.

    I do believe that whoever has 500k is smart enough to note how it's cheaper to unlearn their Profession and level Engineering themselves than buying it for that prize.
    Really, most of the people who oligopolize Markets with overly high Prizes are just growing their competition that will reduce their Profits in the long run.

    Good point. Cost of leveling engineering: about 3k gold. Cost of mount if bought: 100k.

    You'd get it much cheaper if you just logged one of your unused 90s and learned engineering on it.

    How did you figure 3k for leveling? Someone wanting to buy the mount would power-level in which case part of the ghost iron needed only would cost 3K. The whole 1-600 lvling would easily go to 10-15K imo.

    You guys know you won't be the only ones selling the mount, right? The mount only takes 30 days and no real gold sink to make. How many engineers will make the mount after the 30 days are up? 5? 10? 15? Most of them will be put up on AH which will make the price go very low.

    It won't go above 80k.

    The price wont be as much as you think just like panthers were a damp squib. The real money as always is in the old reliables.

    Fully mobile Mech > any other mount in the game. Easily 150-200k the first month they are produced. I'll be making 4 of them a month.

    Well then i guess that puts some sort of higher price to it. But 150k? Not even close to worth it.
    But i guess there are gold buyers who dont care about stuff like that
    I like how the poor think that the rich are "gold buyers" or "stupid" for spending money lol.

    If its going for at a minimum of 50kg, then you'd still make a profit if you wanted two. 10 bars isn't that expensive, and since 30 living steel goes for 15kg, you could easily make another one.

    Im currently at 450k across my chars so ye.. theres that.

  14. #34
    If it's 150k I'll keep the 1st for my self. If it goes up to..."One million dollars" *puts his little finger in the corner of his mouth*...I'll likely sell the 1st one.

  15. #35
    If i cant sell it for 70k+ im gonna use it myself.

    I never had more then 40k over all my chars so yeah, i would be rich for the first time since vanilla!

    I'll be knocking them out at cost. Share the love.

    I'm hoping for 100k or around there on my pretty dead realm. Most likely will be more around 70k or below. If it goes below 50k then screw that, then I'm learning the first one myself and making the second one for the market. And if prices have gone below 30k by then I'll just pass it on to a friend. I'm not putting in all the effort to make this mount just to be forced into selling it below what a nice mount is worth.

    You won't get much more than 50k for it because it would be cheaper for people to level up engineering now then make their own Sky Golem.

    Its really not a great argument. Seeing how boring/time craving it is to level engineering i actually find it very hard to think that people
    will abandon their current profession just to level another one and then abandon that again to re-level up their old profession again.

    That will only happen to people who are EXTREMELY cheap.

    I see 5% maximum of the buyers of the mount doing this... if even that much...
