    I personally am just going to farm for the Tome while I'm in ZG hitting up the mount bosses. I'm leary about investing directly in them because Blizzard may end up making that polymorph a trainable spell for mages. They've done it before with the class skill books that dropped in AQ20 originally.

    Same approach here. I got one, if it becomes rare, I'll sell it. If not, I'll just pass it to my mage. I noticed today the price has dropped a bunch.

    I personally have started buying all tomes under 1,000g ( 4 ) and have farmed several ( 2 ). If blizzard does decide to make this polymorph easily obtainable, I don't really care, it's only 4,000g "wasted" and if they don't then I just become richer.

    I am not investing in these. Speculators be speculatin' but, like others have mentioned, I somehow don't believe they will completely remove this from the game. I may eat these words later.

    Agreed. I'll kick myself if I'm wrong, but in the meantime, I'm just going to farm these myself since I'm already in there for the tiger and raptor mounts. I did just see that several ZG achievements are becoming Feats of Strength, however. So, regardless, ZG is going to be different. That makes me wonder if the bijous and coins will increase in value.

    Blizzard has a reputation of NOT removing spells from the game. This is far from a useless spell. While they could easily implement it as a glyph, it would mean mages would have far too many minor glyphs. This book will be worth the same as Tranq shot and all the AQ books. It will be vendor trash.

    The bijous and coins will be worthless without ZG to turn them in. Cash in on them now while people are trying to rush to exalted for the Feat of Strength.
    Dreaming of the day that we can put away our gold and earn interest on it.

    The only previous example we can fall back on were the AQ books. These allowed players to add a rank to frequently used spells. Since these ranks are part of naturally progression in the game, there was no way blizzard could remove them. Leaving the tomes (without a trainer version) would have been a clunky alternative. In other words, blizzard had to keep these spell ranks in-game.

    Tome of Polymorph: Turtle is different. Removing it from the game won't make leveling weird. It doesn't need to be vendor-taught, either. It's just a flavor item. I think there's a good chance the tome will remain in the game in cataclysm. One can only hope!

    It also looks like Gahz'ranka (and Deadliest catch) have been removed from the game. I wish blizzard would just tell us the fate of the tome.

    Oh, and keep in mind, blizzard is already introducing another new polymorph glyph: [item lang=cata]Glyph of the Monkey[/item]

    Feats of Strength

    * Zul'Gurub is now a Feat of Strength.
    * Deadliest Catch is now a Feat of Strength.
    * Hero of the Zandalar Tribe is now a Feat of Strength.



    With this news it makes me more confident that these items will not be available come Cataclysm.

    This is not necessarily true. The reputation hand-in person is not in ZG nor even close to ZG.

    Another things to remeber is this is a Vanilla WoW item. They didn't add Turtle as an option in BC or Wrath, even though they have added glyphs for other animal polymorphs (penguin) and added quest for new polymorphs (pig and sheep). In Cataclysm, they are adding monkey morphs. They already have obsolete mounts in game. Why not keep this is a rare vanity item once ZG is removed? They may add it to the trainer, but they haven't added any of the others to the trainer yet.
