    Unless I've missed something they haven't said if the Classic TBC DE items will get added to your Shadowlands collection. They will probably only be in Classic so what is the big deal? Those items would still be special in retail.

    Why on earth should anyone give a fuck that a 'collector' paid 1000 for a tcg item? They shouldn't, I own the magic rooster and swift spectral tiger, if tomorrow eveyone was given one free, i would not give a fuck, its meaningless.

    Nothing really new. There was an identical baby hippogryph for a charity thing in the past I believe. There's an identical baby monkey in the game already since MoP. I'm sure there are others.

    You're speaking to people that think socialism/communism is a good thing. IE 16 year olds who think they deserve everything, because they've been told they're winners all their life.

    Like does Blizzard like ruining the prices of items? Or what is the point in bringing back special items that used to be required 1 specific way and now everyone just gets it?
    They did this already with the riding turtle, which you can now also obtain in your Garrison afaik.

    I remember buying a starter pack of the TCG back then and got that loot card of the riding turtle (still have it), could only use it on 1 character.
    You could also buy pets on the BMAH, like the rocketchicken and what not that were also from the TCG.

    so what they do now is not new.

    I get that it's fun to collect but man you got to be careful with what you pick *to* collect. A digital ware whose availability is 100% in control by a corporation.. I would aim to to collect something else to be honest.

    At least you should have the situation clear for yourself before you start with WoW collecting and accept the real possibilities of something like this happening.

    What, did you feel personally attacked by it? Odd.

    There's a huge problem within the game where specific players demand to have everything that isn't available anylonger. It comes from the primal place of hating others for having something that you can't have.

    This is of course amplified thanks to parents and society teaching their children that they aren't to ever accept being told no. Compensation trophies, shared birthday presents, bedrooms full of toys.

    Oddly enough, lots of gamers today, even the adults, have their bedrooms loaded with toys. It's a comfort thing, just to have because they want it and want it now.. They don't even listen to their inner voice telling them no.

    So here we are, making fun of others for wishing scarce, rare things stayed that way so they're more of a wonder to come across.

    The point is to help raise money for charity, I don't see why that's so hard to understand, this isn't the first time they do stuff like this.

    You think you're being clever but it shows you know nothing about the current charity. To be able to donate for the pet you have to donate through the actual charity itself. Blizzard gets none of the money and they cannot write it off.

    No it's not the same in your case. The original card would still hold value regardless. In this case the original Bananas are literally worthless now.
    How so?
    The cards can be made identical as easily as one can make bananas identical, both would lose value at a similar pace.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    I think the better question is, who cares? It's not like someone had a monopoly on these items and GAAAH!!!! *shakes fist* now it's ruined? Lol. It's just an item. Who cares.

    It's not the first nor the last time Blizzard fucked over players by adding a certain thing but 10x as easy to obtain.

    Cause the TCG was real life lootboxes and thats dumb, glad they are.

    Also they literally gave away the riding turtle to anyone with a garrison, and you can still go get it now so lol.
