Vanity Pet #64 - Obsidian Hatchling

Patch 3.2 brought another vendor-bought vanity pet to the game. It's the Obsidian Hatchling that can be bought from Breanni from Dalaran for 50 gold, or less if you your reputation with the Kirin Tor is high. Make sure not to buy this from the Auction House as they have some pretty high mark-ups on them. Man, these hatchlings are tiny!

I remember putting a couple of these in the AH at a time for 100g each and see them being taken within hours. TBH I don't understand why anyone would want to spend an extra 50g for no reason whatsoever. :o But hey - I'm not complaining!

I'm guessing that most people are simply uninformed and/or they don't want to spend the time to look all this stuff up. Besides, it's a new pet and there's some understandable confusion regarding it, especially since there's whole bunch of other hatchlings that go for higher prices but these ones are rare drops. So when someone sees this particular one at "only" 100 gold, they will grab it immediately thinking it's a bargain.

I accidentally bought one from the AH yesterday because I had it mixed up with the Razormaw Hatchling in my mind. I was really surprised to see a rare drop so cheap (60g) but it is brand new and sometimes people get stuff and have no idea what it's worth.

Anyway, I hit buy before I figured out my mistake. Then I spent five minutes cursing my stupidity. Ah, well.

@Mania apologies if you already know about this but try warcraftpets.com. It will tell you exactly where each pet comes from.

Oops, that's what happens when I don't follow through from the beginning or I would have realized that you are the person behind Petopia. BTW, great job with that site! So I guess you are familiar with warcraftpets.com also.
