This is a Reagent for the new JC Panther Mounts.
The name may or may not be a place holder; which in itself is a joke on the fact that you will spend a few billion copper coins in order to get your hands on a BoE profession made mount.
That being said; I'll take 8.
I can't quite put my finger on why, but I suspect this will be the new gold sink in Mists of Pandaria.
I already pre-ordered 40 of these for my many blood elf concubines. Concubines love panthers.
I'm gonna take a shot in the dark here and assume this is expensive.
To those who've been looking through new MoP stuff, this is probably a placeholder for the actual mats necessary. Obviously we're in the early beta stages of MoP and they are yet to reveal everything. Be patient, I highly doubt they'll want to create a 500k gold sink for a panther.
Nice. Now I wonder if they're going to have anything else higher?
Also gotta like the names they come up with :)
Actually, looking at WoWhead, it says 25,000g is the sell price for 20 of these. So if you do the math: 25,000 / 20 = 1250g per. 1250 x 5= 6250g per mount. All 4 mounts: 6250 x 4= 25,000g. So the Jeweled Onyx Panther will be 25,000g. That's just what I was thinking. Maybe I'm wrong, but we'll see soon :)
i was really excited for the new mounts (being a JC myself)...until i saw the price of
time to go get some more gold :P
Judging from the sell price of this item, the pruchasing price will be
Wonder if this gem will be acquired by raids or the new world bosses? I hope it will be acquired through prospecting or even transmutable.
lol wait a min, whats the gold cap? i can say for sure on my server that if it doesnt drop somewhere, and it really goes cost 2million for the matts alone, no one will be buying it on my server. everyone will be rollin jc's for this. besides look at the diffrence between dalarans wooly mammoth cost and the cost for sandstone drake mount matts. not that big even though its from 2 diffrent expansions.the panther dont even do something special like the drake does carrying 2 people. they just have it set like this so no one buys the item until they can think of a real pricess
but in case they do leave it like this, you can expect to get alot of gold in dungeons, since cata ones give you like 83g at 85, at 90 itll be alot more.i can see the mount being so expensive if they make each part account bound. that, and Enchanting and jewelcrafting are about to take over the World, of warcraft, since now alchemists can only do transmutes once a day now and leveling any armor proffs "except tailoring" is going to be terrible. scribes will have some fun for the first 1-2 weeks but then its all about the jewels, and its all about the enchants. enchanting will be easiest to level since oyu dont have to worry about camping to get herbs and ores before everyone else does. You can peacefully quest and dis the items you dont want and do the same way with dungeons.
and as sson as a level my shaman to 75 i can corner the market. i have a habit of stocking up everything i need to level a whole proff, and then leveling the charcter. an enchanter, tailor, alchemist, and jc with the gathering proffs split evenly. and you guys should try out that new addon on WoW interface. where you can do stuff like any cloth you get gets aoutmatically sent to your tailor, and ore to your bs or jc and herbs to your ect. really cool. and another one that helps time you for practicing to do challenge mode
Sad part is I will probably grind these to get the mounts, then get a couple more just to vendor....
I don't think we'll see this pricing as final. It would be too attractive to vendor this instead of actually using them.
Doubt the sell price per unit will be 25k, and maybe this item will actually be a drop like Essence of Destruction, or it may be crafted by other professions.
If this will be used in the full game, perhaps it's something CoT related? Looking at the 'Harvested from ancient moments' flavor text it seems logical to me.
When you look at the gold quest rewards for Pandaria zones, and couple that with the bonus gold for max level players (that works with dailies too), and you'll soon see that gold farming for these kind of values (100k gold) will be just as bothersome as farming for the
on LK or the
on Cata. The only problem will be farming for the four of them, but let's hope you can learn the mount and, once you get the four different, the fifth one appears, instead of consuming the actual items.
i don't care how mutch it will cost, i realy don't, why?
i know i will get it, and have time enough to work my ass of to make it.
look how damn sexy that blingbling dude is man :)
This is an Orb of great power and great mystery. Its power is exceeded only by its mystery
This costs 20,000g (18,000 with guild perk) from Big Keech, found strolling up and down the path just east of the Golden Pagoda. Not as expensive as people though it'd be.
Edit: It will only cost 280k (252k with guild perk) to make all of the mounts that use this as a reagent. (including the 4 extra panthers for the Jeweled Onyx Panther.)
I might be mistaken, but I think this is sold by Big Keech in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms...
Edit: That was a joke...
So yes, these are still 20000g on live, 18000g with
, Keech doesnt have a faction, so presumably the Goblin racial doesnt apply. This means either of the engineering mounts cost 54000g and change, the JC mounts are 18000g+, and the big daddy, the
is 72000g (or 144000g if you want all five JC mounts). This is going to be an expensive expansion...
Coto, the going price on my server has been ~37k for a while now. The recipe is a pain to get but the competition is going nowhere. I prefer to make bikes, roughly same profit for 40% the vendor mat price and other mats are easier to farm.
20k each is insanely expensive even with my knack for making profit.
The only mystery here is why it cost so much.
its too expensive for a ground mount, the epic one needs wings to be worth the effort.
People are selling this mount on my server for as little as 65k. This can't be right... Selling at a loss? Even if you think farming is free, making all the other mats free, it still costs 72k in orbs... Dupes?
This is a good way to keep you busy in the game, farming gold towards a goal keeps some people playing. In other news... Holy bad comments batman! What we really need... is someone to delete all these down-ranked comments...
Okay i am sorry but i cant be the only one that thinks this is wayyyy to much gold lol i cant even afford 1, man i must be doing something wrong when farming gold then lol
screw the jeweled onyx panther. ima have twice the fun and still have gold by just farming the mats and buying 1 of these for my ruby panther.
Just found one of these in a
. This may be a new drop in 5.1, as it's not currently listed as contained by
I just found out that these are so epic that they don't even STACK!
The price of this stupid thing is ludicrous. I've never seen more than 6k gold playing WoW. I play for dungeons and raids. Not so I can have some second, fictional job.
Sells for 18k gold (with guild perk) from
. I found him at 64, 41 in the Vale.
This item being 20kg from Big Keech means that making the Panther mount is hardly worth the cost considering that the mount only sell for about 23kg on my server. Tell me again how this is worth it and how I'm going to make any kind of profit.
Doesn't stack :(
Also a great item to buy if your over gold cap when doing a server xfer (50k cap wtf blizz)
Looking to spend 18k on this mysterious item?
Wait a minute!
If you are in luck some fool with 18k too many gold bought a spare and is now trying to get rid of it "cheap" on your local Auction House. Trust me, it happens.
This item has helped me transfer 280k gold from one server to the next.
The current gold limit for paid character transfer is 50k at level 90.
I bought a couple handfuls of these on Hydraxis and sold them on Area 52 for around the same price give or take a thousand. Well worth the investment this early in the expansion if you are planning on transferring a character.
More like Orb of Misery. Mmmm Dat Gold Sink.
My guildmate just randomly found one listed on the AH for one copper.
Someone made a huge mistake, and my guildmate is now 15k richer.
I bought 2 of these on the ah for 1800g each. I'm sure the person either didn't know what they had, or made a typing error. Either way it was , my hubbie and I are riding around on 2 new mounts :-)
How do people come up with 20k gold? My level 90 primary has only made 42000 gp in her
Keep an eye out at the Auction House. I bought one for 15k there...wish I knew the story behind
Probably someone who transferred to your server and couldn't take all his gold with him
Ah! Thanks Hele, that makes sense. I was kinda hoping for something a bit more juicy. Like some guy had come home from bar-hopping and suddenly decided he
to make a bunch of jewelcraft mount and bought one too many orbs. Not that
ever done that or anything...
Does this item come down in price with reputation? If so, what reputation? Thanks in advance!
In my server US-Proudmoore there is a dude selling every week like 6 of them for 14,500. How is this possible? It is true that I always wait for his auctions to craft some panthers or even better to flip them again.
But the question is how is this guy doing this, this is nearly impossible from the very low drop rate or the max discount you can get.
Anyone has any clue?
I have opened at least 100 Bling gifts and never got one of these!
can you make it at all
that's crazy I never even held 18k before what a grind
Here is a tip to make the cost of these things less ridiculous: check the AH.
Because they appear in Bling-boxes, if your on a high realm, quite a few of these "free" orbs appear, pushing the price down (and maybe some hackers liquefying poor people).
Whatever the case, just by watching the prices of these while buying my archy fragments, I have found them to be on average anything from 2k to 6k cheaper then if you were to buy it from Keech directly. (Assuming 18k price).
So it may be worth a look if you plan on getting a lot of these.
one of these ended up in my guild bank today
the log doesn't say who put it in
it's a true mystery
Personally, getting quite tired of these purchase-only ultra-expensive items for craftable mounts. I would much rather farm materials (even ridiculous amounts of them), than gold. I like the route they went with the sky-golem, requiring BoP one-craft-per-day items.
Got one from Blingtron and asked how much it was worth got:
"I'll buy it for 500g
"I'll buy it for 5k"
I decided to be kind and take the 5k offer
Anyone know i the price can still be reduced to 18k in 6.0.2? I only see it sold for 20k.
since the guild perk is gone, I'm assuming these are now 20k flat for everybody?
is gone, back to 20,000 per orb.
Can confirm you can still get this in Blingtron 5000 packages.
At least the other vendor exclusive gold-sink items had some inkling of sense. like sands of time, or extremely rare custom parts. This is just "hey you need an orb, why, It's a mystery!" ...They really just didn't care.
As of 03/27/15 these still drop from Blingtron 5000's package. Just got one today. Time to make a JC mount!
EDIT: I was not on a JC when I got the Orb of Mystery from Blingtron 5000.
Bad news I believe. Spent 15 minutes on the path His Majesty the Big Keech strolls and even though I cleared ALL the sha in the area, he did not deign to appear. The real mystery about the Mysterious Orbs is: WHERE IS THE VENDOR?
It says it is refundable, well you cannot sell it back to vendor, only AH?
Am I crazy or does someone on Draenor now sell these also? I thought I saw another vendor sell them.
These are pretty useful for transferring gold. Just sell them a bit cheaper on the AH for minimal loss.
I know this comment is not helpful, but I just won this item on AH (bid) for 8 copper.
Would have been nice if Blizz had done a "price squish" for this item :(
Confirmed today that even as a goblin, there is no discount and is still the full price, 20k.
With the new Assaults up in the Vale, speak to Zidormi at 79,32 to go back to the alternate time. The vendor,
is near the Siege of Ogrimmar raid entrance. Yes, it still costs 20,000 gold, and this is the
, even for Goblins, as he does not belong to a faction to have an Exalted discount with.
If you buy these for cheaper on the AH, can you sell them back to the vendor for 20k?
As of Shadowlands and still going back in time... if he is actually at the Golden Pavillion and that is contested territory. If you dare move from him you are automatically PVP. It really sucks because I'm not PVP and I really need to get these. Have to call out to all of my friends to help!
