That item will have A LOT of competition on big servers at least, I honestly am nervous about how much money I will actually get for this thing lol.
Very hard indeed.
Like always, the price will be insane in the first few days - but seeing how many people are already preparing to make/sell one, there surely will be a lot of competition.
@pallyopness, Though i still call bs, if it's true then seriously congrads on making bank from a moron
100k is outrageous. I have quite a few engineers and plan on selling it for around 50k if I can. That's a little more than 1k profit a day from spending 30 seconds.
I'd say that's decent.
There is something called supply and demand, many would like to have it and many have leveled engineer in order to make one for them and to sell it, what do you think will happen to price when you see 20x or even much more?

They'll be worth about 60-80k, I think. and if you list one for this, and it does sell, be prepared for tons of tells and ingame mail telling you that you have it priced way too high.
They cost nothing to make and the mats take about 15 seconds per day to make, you can fly around Jade Forest for an hour and have enough ghost iron to cover an entire week, 60 ghost iron bars for trillium>living steel (less if you have transmute procs) and 10 for the engineer thing
I'm on a high pop server so I'm sure all the mounts will be over 500K on the first day and I'm also sure there is someone who will pay that much for whatever reason
To be honest, I really don't see them going for that much. This won't be a perfect argument, but lets take my realms population from WoWProgress (Mal'ganis.) It lists Mal'ganis as having 13,071 unique Horde characters that have at least killed something in T15 normal. I like to think that anyone that's serious about raiding on a character will generally level Engineering for the glove tinker, and obviously not all of these characters are serious raiders. Even if just 1/4 of these people are serious raiders, that would be 3,267 mounts on day 30, assuming that each person does the daily CD each day diligently. Even if just 1/8 of this population pool was people with engineering, that amounts to 1,633 mounts on day 30. That's not even taking into consideration people who have multiple engineers (I personally know people with upwards of 3 engineers, all working towards a mount.)
Basically what I see is a product that is going to hit the market on day 30 when dailies reset, and there is going to be a lot of them. I think that obviously whoever is on when dailies reset and gets it crafted first has the potential to sell it for an absurd amount, maybe upwards up 200k+ if there's someone with more gold than brains online, but by the end of just that first day? These things will be incredibly populated in trade chat. I expect the price to plateau incredibly fast. There is going to be an intense undercutting war once these are crafted, and it will only hurt Engineers.
All that being said though, I really do hope some of you Engineers are the lucky ones who make an insane profit off of these things. It's always nice to make a nice chunk of gold.
Edit: Forgot to add, the smaller the population on your realm the more you will make. On my old realm (Skullcrusher) there's a population of 1,761 Horde, so the number of mounts is obviously going to be much smaller, and I'd assume this would net everyone making one a nice hunk of gold as a result.

My server is very very low pop, so when one goes up, probably a month from now it will be 200k and no one will buy it, there will just be one up on the auction house for months before the seller gives up and learns It himself.
Oh the joys of an empty server.

I've already seen my friends and guild mates pre sell their mounts over 200k. Why do people on this thread believe it wont happen. This WILL be the most sought out crafted mount in this game. It will sell high.
