    Jeweled Onyx Panther for 25K?

    Is it just me, or does this appear to be too cheap?

    I've seen 2 people selling them, but others are selling for 50K plus. Was there a nerf in price? Or are people up to no good again?

    Dupes. The base cost for creating these is 72k due to needing to buy 4 Orbs of Mystery at 18k per.

    Aside from duping, there could be other factors

    - Demand is probably a bit lower (if not significantly lower) at this point in MoP
    - Since there's a gold cap when transferring realms, some players will make/buy these in an effort to bring some additional gold to their new realm. Usually they'll want to get rid of it quickly and are willing to lose a little bit of gold in the process. (This is actually something I did when I transferred, think I ended up selling it for 70k, wasn't much of a market for it and I just wanted to get rid of it)


    With the above reasons, I can understand selling it for maybe a few thousand gold less than the mat prices, but going as far as a third of the mat prices seems a bit fishy to me.

    Except those people typically xfer with a guild circumventing that cap. These are dupes unless you see them on the AH or can get them COD'd to you.

    Thers still a 1,050,000 cap if you xfer with a guild. Though I agree that affects almost no one lol

    On topic, def duped no one takes a 80% loss on an item to move it quicker. OR a miss post if its on the ah and they ment like 250k or somthing weird

    Notice you almost NEVER see one on the AH, they are almost always being sold my level 1's who wont respond when you tell them you will buy it for 15k more than 25k if they list it on the AH.

    How would you dupe it?

    Bugs in the WoW software. Specific methods are (a) not going to last very long, and (b) get you banned, and (c) not permitted to discuss here.

    Theoretically, while these likely would be dupes anyways, I believe you can get those orbs from Blingtron? Thus being able to sell them lower than their cost and make a profit.

    99.99% of the time, they are duping.

    I can see getting some orbs from blingtron but you would need 3 of them to make any profit at 25k. 10+ players selling them at 25k or lower daily is weird, lowest I have seen was 9k. There is no way the players selling them obtained them legitimately.

    Only buy panthers from the AH. The ones sold in trade are duped and will not work, when you right-click they say "not enough charges".

    I purchased a few from trade chat and never had a problem

    For 25k? Definitely duped at that price, but maybe there's a dupe that produces working items?

    Definitely ^THIS.

    You don't want to know how, or be involved in anything to do with the dupes. Much safer that way.

    Death is the great equalizer.

    There has yet to be a dupe that produced working items. Always out of charges items which is why they can't be COD'd to you or put on the AH and you see people saying 25k in trade.

    If someone unknowingly bought a duped Jeweled Onyx Panther for 25k gold would they get in trouble?

    They'd likely lose their mount, and not be reimbursed.

    Always buy from the ah that way you can plead ignorance and say you thought it was a sellers mistake and blizz might be kind to you

    Never buy anything expensive from a guildless level 1
