Forum post of the day: For fun and profit

What does a spiffy rare mount cost? You can get a Spectral Tiger for about $900 (once sold for $2,000) on eBay. You could pay 20,000 gold for an Amani Warbear. BlizzCon 2008 World of Warcraft in-game polar bear mount with mounted, flag-waving murloc? $40 bucks. All you have to do is sign up for the DirecTV package and that fabulous bear is all yours. If I were a mount collector, I might persuade my friends to sign up for the package in my name.

Kothor of Skywall is ordering the video package even though he's planning on attending Blizzcon. He suggested that Blizzard should make all of the rare mounts available for purchase. This suggestion was welcomed by several who have spent countless hours grinding for their prized ponies.

Others mentioned that providing in-game items for real cash is a violation of the terms of service. Of course Blizzard makes the rules, and has the rights to distribute their intellectual property as they see fit. I never though I'd see Blizzard allow PvE to PvP transfers, but that has happened. Kurgan of Ragnaros believes that official gold selling is not that far off.

What would you be willing to pay cash for from Blizzard?
