The only way this mount doesnt sell for over 100K+ is either your realms economy sucks, dupers on your realm, and/or people who just do not know how awesome this mount is going to be.
Dunce because they dont understand the value of 150k compared to what the mount costs to craft or a gold buyer
that just doesnt care because they just buy new gold and doesnt place value in gold.
Is this hard to understand or are you just baiting?
Not true really. I have adequate gold and characters with spare profession slots. Engineering is quite easy to level and it would cost 4-8k. It is a good idea imo and if as you say it will not go below 100k, then that could save you at least 50k by your reckoning. Your argument doesnt make a lot of sense.
Once the initial tranche of mounts is sold then I expect it to be well below 100k and more probably about 75k. It is just a mount. Plenty of people will be making it. You only need to buy one.
Actually I cant believe it but am supporting what Fincher said. It is a viable option to make your own engineer and make the mount yourself. If as you say you already have every profession then quite easy to farm the mats yourself as well as having the living steel ready to make. If you have 11 characters maxed then you are likely to have an engineer anyway.
If you have to use the ah then its quite easy to do so in a cost effective way. Why would you power level engineering if your aim was this mount? You only have to be 600 at 5.4 which is ages away.
It is just a mount. People were banging on about panthers, choppers and vials before, but once you have them then they are pedestrian. On any healthy server I dont see it maintaining 100k after the first ttranche and I think it will be about 75k and falling.

Current mat cost(which has been sadly confirmed as not changing) is only about 12-15k, while engineer powerlevel is about the same depending on server. So do you really think a mount that costs atmost 30k to craft is going to be selling for 100k+? 30 days tacks on far less than you think to the cost when anyone is able to make one for themselves for pennies compared to what some of you guys think they will sell for.
I think the mount looks amazing so I will try to sell the first one for 100-150k, if it doesn't sell within 48hours I'm keeping it.
Thanks to Noxychu for the wonderful avatar!
mounts have lost thier luster over the years, no new mount now is worth stopping and admiring.."oh look whats his riding...awsome..how do i get such a mount?"
with so many kinds of mounts out there , it doesnt really worth all that gold.
even those who craft for themselfs will lose interest after an hour or so of using it.
and dont give me the "30 days cooldown" excuse for pumping the price...its doesnt require to do a scenario or somthing , just 5 secs each day..
you will end up doing it each day even if you dont have any plans to build use or sell anything...
Looking at the results of the black market auction house proves that there are rich players out there willing to shell out incredible amounts of gold for mounts. Even obscene amounts of gold spent on lvl 535 gear that surely will be replaced in the short term.
People shouldn't be afraid to set the price they want to sell it at, not some made up arbitrary number random people think it will sell for.
Do you have to be lvl 90 to get the recipe?
Also, you guys have to consider supply and demand aswell. Sure, it only costs 15k to create, but the whole server won't get supplied with these mounts the first month or two, therefore, it's very likely that the mount price will go above 100k on any medium-high pop server since a lot more people are interested in buying it than crafting it themselves.
Very, very high. Seriously, 99.99% of people are keeping the first one. I have two engineers :3
30 living steel x 500 each at least and 600 ghost iron +20-40k probably. I'm on tich, it'll sell fast.
