Phat Loot Phriday: Porcelain Bell

Mike Schramm

This is a weird one -- we've been doing Ulduar epics lately, but here's something a little different for you to hunt down.

Name: Porcelain Bell (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Poor Salvage Item
Damage/Speed: N/A
  • Embellished with a figure reaching toward a swan. This is a grey piece of vendor trash, probably the worst quality item we've ever featured here.
  • Wait a minute Mike, I can hear you saying, this is supposed to be Phat Loot Phriday. Why are you showing us a piece of vendor junk? Because, my friends, in the eyes of the vendors, this little bell is worth more than the Warglaives of Azzinoth combined (and you could even throw in Thori'dal, too). Yes, this little bell sells to vendors for... wait for it... 100g.

  • Indeed. If you're lucky enough to get this out of a bag that smells like fish (see below), congrats, you've gotten a nice gold bonus from Blizzard. This item exists for no reason but to be sold, and when you do sell it, it'll net you a century of gold.
  • It's BoE (or whatever the equivalent of Poor BoE is) too, so you can give it away or even sell it across the cross-faction AH to move some gold easily. Be careful, though - if you do try to sell it for cheap, there's always the chance that someone else will swoop in and buy it. Or, if you want to be sneaky, you could watch out on the AH for exactly this, and ninja one of these out from underneath traders. Seller beware.
How to Get It: Like the Ancient Coin in Burning Crusade, it's an extra gold reward to come out of the Dalaran Fishing Dailies. When you complete the daily, you'll get an extra bundle of fun stuff (and/or junk), and every once in a while, you'll get lucky and get one of these. All the more reason to level up fishing and cooking -- it's easier than ever to do now, too.

Getting Rid of It: Sells to vendors for 100g. Haven't you been listening? Doesn't disenchant, and there's no real reason to keep it in the bank. Unless you just have more money than you need, and want to save it for a rainy day (or a nice gift -- I'd like to see one of these in my inbox on my birthday).
