Ships Full of Gold Making Landfall!
First off, I think the Brawler's Guild is going to be a good source of money by selling invitations once you're in the guild. The trick is going to be getting in. From the patch notes, here are a few ways:
"Entry into the brawler’s guild is by invitation only. Invitations can be found on the black market auction house, by invitation from somebody within the guild, and occasionally as drops from certain Horde and Alliance NPCs."
Unfortunately, a preliminary search of Wowhead didn't tell me which NPCs drop these invitations. So, I think whoever can find these NPCs first will be rolling in the bloody dough. I wouldn't bother with the black market because there's going to be a huge bidding war for about the first month or so.
Secondly, Battle-Stones. From the patch notes:
"Players will have a very small chance to obtain a general purpose and family specific Flawless Battle-stone after winning a match against wild pets; defeating higher level opponents increases the chances of obtaining a stone. Family specific Flawless-Battlestones will be of the same family as the pets that were defeated. These valuable items are not soulbound, and can be sold on the Auction House."
Of course, every gold blogger and goblin is probably seeing dollar signs from this. At last, possibly a way to make up for the crash of the pet market. And if you've followed the Wowhead link above, you probably saw that Wowhead say's they're BoP but the quote from the patch notes clearly says they're not. So, I see a good opportunity here to sell these puppies at a mint.
Lastly, more reasons to run old raids.
"Several classic Raid bosses now have a chance to drop new Battle Pets. The new pets can be obtained from bosses in Molten Core, Blackwing Lair, Ahn'Qiraj, and Naxxramas."
Now considering that these pets drop from bosses, I imagine that they can be sold on the auction house as well. I know what I'll be doing this weekend and I'l update this if they can't be, but my money is that they can. Maybe the pet market is in for a rebound.
Well, that's all for now, folks! Until next time, stay safe out there!
