So, I've been working aware on both my main (hunter) and my maggie to get enough Ghost Iron Ore to prospect for Alexandrite (reagent for Transmute: Wild Jade) and to make bars which I've been transmuting to Trilium Bars and then Living Steel.
It also happens that I'm not the only person whose shown an interest in these mounts recently. Jim over at Power Word: Gold posted about the duplicating of the Jeweled Onyx Panther yesterday. It's a really interesting read and got me thinking about my servers AH. Whilst the four coloured panther mounts are available on my servers AH for a reasonable price (~25-27k each) the jeweled onyx is selling for a lot cheaper than the cost of materials (around 65k). I have no idea if this is due to duplicating or not but it's certainly cheaper than making your own - but should you purchase such bargain buys and risk it being a duplicate?
