  • Pets in 5.0 and items to stock up on now.

    With the new pet combat-system coming up in 5.0 (yes yes, it's probably almost a year from now till launch), we will probably see a rise in sale of all the craftable engineering pets. Personally, I'm not really psyched about the idea of pet-battles, but I am psyched about the potential sales and profit on the pet market.

    The point of this post is to put focus on the items I've found to have a low supply on the AH in the past, to give ample time to stock on those.

    The engineering pets:







    Cured Rugged Hide
    Thorium Widget (4)
    Globe of Water (2)
    Truesilver Transformer (2 - Elemental Earth x 2 , Elemental Air)
    Gold Power Core














    The low supply items to keep an eye on and stock up on:


    (for Cured Rugged Hide)
    (for Cured Rugged Hide)









    Maybe this really belongs in a Mists of Pandaria thread/forum or in the speculation forum (Maybe we need a 5.0 stockpiling thread?). If you have anything to add, please do so

They could be a gold-mine, as I bet most people won't do it and supply will still be pretty low on them.
      Random thought if pets are tradeable would it be an idea to gently stock up on sanguine Hibiscus? For the rep pet.

      This could be viable. It will work if players decide to up their rep to get the pet. But, the risk is that players won't bother and rather get it from players that already have the rep.

      Honestly though, I would say worst case scenario is that the price of Hibiscus doesn't increase and you sell it back off at break even. So, it probably wouldn't be that risky in the end. Best case, it jumps due to people wanting to get the pet and you profit heavily

      Or you could get the pet yourself and trade it, therefore you should buy Glowcaps, too (either for others that want the pet or selling the pet).

      Just another quick thought regarding pets during Hallow's End. I've managed to get atleast 1 copy of the everyday so far, and deleted those because they are soulbound. If pets become tradable, this is also a potential seller, seeing as most Pandarans wont have this pet yet.

      Wow, I didn't even think of that. Good point. I deleted 4 of these while doing my trick or treat rounds... DOH! Guess I can finish up Outlands and see if I get another, then save it this time. With the void storage, this would be a good place to stick pets like that.

      So along those lines, I may post another thread about pets that would be worth snagging and hanging onto for MoP expac... BoP ones. This could be a great gold maker.

      Another thought (albeit, off-tangent) -- ALCHEMISTS may want to grind Sporegar Rep, for the XMute recipes. Since these xmutes are (still!!) on the daily cooldown, it makes sense to have many alchemists with these recipes in their arsenal.

      Anyone who joins in MoP, between this Hallow's End and MoP, or anyone who previously had no interest in Hallow's end.
