    To Buy or Not to Buy: TCG Mounts dropping

    On my actual server there is one guys posting most of all TCG and Rare Mounts. In the past 2 months he started dropping the prices to a 50% or even less price of the Average or Median of ALL REGIONS on the same faction







    Some of them are below 100K. The point is he have like 3-4 of each, so even I can buy one or two of them, If I want to sell it right now, he will undercut and I will have no profit.

    Do you think is worthy to buy some them, no to sell it right now, but later when prices go higher?

    Thanks

    be careful, unfortunately i purchased a EST that was duped, attempted to repost it on the auction house & it wouldnt let me. Gave me a red error, contacted a GM & they said that is there way of eliminating the dupes now.

    It will give you a "cant post item with used charges" error.

    Happened to me with a Jeweled Onyx Panther I bought off a guy in trade for 15k (mats are like 70k so this was a steal that I was certain was duped lol). Anyway, tried to resell and couldn't, so I just petitioned a GM who then removed the item and gave me back my 15k.

    With that being said, the duped pets are a massive problem and this does not work because you can just re-cage them and still sell. Also, I have seen a recent liquidation of TCG mounts as well on my server, mostly in trade though, which implies they are being duped, however I purchased one, Magic Rooster Egg (nabbed for 90k), and then threw it up on the AH without issue(though I ended up just learning it myself cause I love the thing! haha). The guy even asked me if I wanted more than 1 and I saw him spamming trade for like the next 2 days. It had to have been a dupe.

    So, it could just be blizz put a bandaid on an old dupe method and then a new dupe method popped up, or had always been there, but they sat on it whilst this one was working, only to pull it out once that one got fixed.

    Make the seller put it up on the AH. If they refuse, don't buy it. If they are willing, and it works, then it's unlikely it's duped.

    No this are not dupes, I been tracking the prices on my snatch lists from the AH and on wowuction alerts, and they are falling down.. So I was wondering if there is an profitable opportunity to buy some of them today and wait on WoD to sell them...

    Namssob, so lets said that this is legal, as you can see on this links
    http://www.wowuction.com/us/proudmoo...ms/Stats/49282

    So it is recommended to buy now and save for later sell? or even better, to buy and then move to another server/realm to sell it to a better price?

    thanks

    It depends on the mount. But yes, if it's at a steal price, and relatively sure it's not a dupe, I would likely buy several as an investment or hedge against inflation.

    I would buy them. Even doing a transfer to resell them at a higher price would let you make big profits.

    Can these items be learned? They can obviously be traded.

    That depends your budget and patience. For Example, I'm sure people sold over a hundred Panthers when they duped, I bought a dozen, resold five within oneandahalf years (at roughly Mats cost). In the meantime more dupes came out (Several hundred Vials of the Sand), TCG Mounts such as Spectral Tigers and Ghastly Chargers, Blazing Hippogryfs and I had not enough monies to buy all of them.

    Buyign all is a big bonus because you can create the illusion on your Server that dupes do not exist. But if the duper sells half their stuff to other people who spam "WTS Vial of the Sands 25k" in trade it becomes increasingly harder to sell it for regular price.
