Also, there's a shovel you can use to dig up a plant you don't want (it's near where you got the watering can and sprayer). I've been planting the daily one for credit, then digging it up and planting what I wanted.

The biggest issue with pets is that none of the ones you catch in the wild can be sold so you're very limited to what you can sell to mostly what already exists for people to obtain. Also if you're selling to people who want to do pet battles they won't be buying anything under rare quality.

I'm sure I could make a decent sum selling some of the rare pet models I've caught to collectors (if I wasn't one myself) over the last week but I can't.

This ultimately depends on your ability to AoE farm. As a priest, it's usually easier for me to fish in pools (to guarantee the fish I want.) If you fish outside of pools, you get a lot of Golden Carp, which require 60 for a turn in as opposed to 20. I think once I get my pally into the area, I'll probably see about AoE farming in prot. If I can find a quickly respawning area that also gives some sort of meat (or veggie I guess, but those are generally more "rare") then it will quite useful.

The real problem is twofold.. first, people who normally aren't AH players are caging and selling their pets because of the reduced value and a chance for "easy" gold (note, many of these are the type of player where 1000G is a fortune) so they are dumping their entire pet collections. Second, the dramatic increase in the number of available pets has reduced demand for any of the rare ones since there are so many more now, even if many of those need to be caught. Completionists are busy catching pets, not buying them.

Another problem is that the pets are now sold in two places, so people don't know where to look for them.

I'm getting ready to dump my inventory just to clear it out.

A similar effect is happening on mount prices. People aren't buying the older ones because there are so many more new ones. I trained 12 dragon turtles alone on my Panda last night. Hard to get excited about collecting all the mounts when Blizz added over 60 new ones sofar for this xpac.

One issue on our server is stuff like old mounts and pets are being posted for 150+k gold. While gold is easy to make, on our server there are only about 15-20 people who normally shell out that kind of money and they are the ones selling them atm, so the buying market at those prices is very small.

The early price inflation has people seeing $$$ so they are jacking up prices too high versus what demand really is wanting. They are hoping for that "one" person who will pay that much for the mounts/pets.

I'm having trouble with belt buckles mainly because the cost of mats is so high and no one wants to pay 2000-2500g for a belt buckle when they can remember buying one for 300g about a month ago.

It is literally because you can't buy them. I would totally buy a Scourged Hatchling, Alpine Fox Kit and Baby Ape since those are all hard to farm at the moment with low respawn rate and weather dependencies.

and they don't care right now about the old ones (Disgusting Oozling, etc). Or you have the folks who learned the Oozling ages ago that can now cage and sell them so they post it for 500-1000G.

Side note:

The BMAH mounts are BoP. Sofar I purchased the Allyrasor mount for 130k (yeah, I know, a bit high), and the white polar bear for a cool 20k.

Collectors would care about the old ones, they are collectors after all, I never got a toxic wasteling so I bought one. I'm not going to be putting up my Whites and Greens because they're so common in both traditional ways to obtain them and via the AH and if anyone is "serious" about pet battles they wouldn't buy them anyway so I have an entire character's bags filled with caged battle pets. Additionally some of the rares are also incredibly common, stupid sinister squashling. About the best I've sold were TBC fishing daily crocs.

Regardless, I'm undecided if I will dump them on the Terenas AH, or try another server where I can buy account-wide mounts.

Is the Bat from the old Karazan halloween event a rare? I haven't even looked at pet battles yet. It might be rare enough to sell assuming it is a good pet to have and is a "rare" type.

Within 30 seconds, sold 1, and before I went to raid had sold 4. Sadly got undercut doing the raid, but have since reposted for ~2350/ea, so still making nearly 1k on them if they sell by tomorrow.


And crafted pvp chest/legs still selling rather well, mats are ~100-140g, both sell for 800-1200 depending on the day.


Where do I get the buckle?!?!?!?!
