Actually, if this pet has a vendor value of anything, they are magically spawning the capability of magically appearing gold. Would be cost effective to buy 10,000 of these to buy 100g at vendor value? No, but, IF it vendors, they are magically spawning currency.
And hence we have 37 pages of QQ'ing about "if...."
I also did not use "knowing someone" as proof. I used it as an example.
Because people want it and they can make profit with it doesn't mean they are the majority. It also doesn't mean that it's the best thing for the game like I already explained. It's better for Blizzard but maybe not for the game itself or for the consumers. It doesn't matter if people want it or if people pay for it.Common sense, and a broader view on what's going on in the gaming business. Blizzard aren't the only ones doing this. If people didn't want this then it wouldn't be profitable to do it.
When I say that people "want" I don't mean that they have been asking for it. But they are willing to pay, which is all that matters.
Also, "common sense" and "a broader view". That's all you got?
Uhm no, because that would make people play less and they would lose subs.By that logic we should have had epics for cash a long time ago. I can't think of anything that would make more money.
And by your logic, if the majority of the people wants something it's good to implement it, everyone would have killed Ragnaros HC by now. That doesn't make it a good thing for the game, for Blizzard and their profit.
We will see what happens.

Then why do we have to go through this every single time Blizzard adds a premium feature ?
If Blizzard knows where the line is why do we have 37 pages of "THEY CROSSED DA LINE!!!!!" and "Next thing will be epics for cash, just wait and see!" ?

It's really funny to see people rage about this pet, and then say that it can't be compared to the TCG, because the cards are rare.
Seems like when it's just a few "people using thier wealth to gain an in game advantage" it's OK.... How is that fair?
Blizzard are allowing someone to buy something that they dont want and will therefore sell for ingame gold. They accept this will happen and are therefore allowing people to buy gold. Judging by their comments they think it will have a high enough in game price to make it worthwhile.
There is no other reasonable explaination for it being BoE.
Do suggest this compares to the TCG lottery beggars belief.
I think people using wealth to gain an in game advantage is unfair and I dont think that Blizzard should allow such an easy way for it to happen.
You seem to think its ok - that is something I simply cannot understand.
By what kind of logic is that not the same as this pet?
Where's your outrage against this?
Oh dear 10$ for one pet for one toon very expensive for someone who likes to collect them on all toons. Making the transfer between R/L money into game money is not a good idea. I understand illegal dodgy gold selling is a serious problem and despicable to Boot as its probably come from a hacked account but with all the resources at Blizzards disposal I would expect a better solution than to adopt a stance of "if you cant beat them join them" Do blizzard seriously expect this to solve the problem........ This is one pet I wont have at either price nor any future ones offered like this.
