 Post subject: New tradeable pet.....

So you buy the pet for £9 off the blizzard store, can keep it yourself, give to a friend or auction it

I am not sure I like this idea at all, I don't mind buying stuff of the blizzard store, but usually you buy a companion pet, and all your chars (and future chars) get it as well.

reading the comments posted and a lot of players annoyed about this

It's the first true RMT item in WoW. You exhange real money for in-game currency. Cash shop is the next logical (aka evolutionary) step.

You pay 10 bucks and sell the pet for 5000g. Buying gold for real money is legal now. :twisted: It's called "monetizing" the game.

But we've seen all this coming the day Blizz started to sell sparkly ponnies. It was just a matter of time.

As I said on Facebook, I'm mostly annoyed that I'd have to pay the same amount of money for a pet that I can only use on one character, while all the other pets are account bound.

I guess it's debatable if legal RMT would work against the illegal kind.
