As much as I would want to spend my gold on this, I doubt I would even be able to afford the cheapest mount...

You would be losing money anyway, IMO. Yeah, you could buy the mount, but it'll never be as special and fulfilling as it was. A lot of people will have it now, and spending 10000g (or real money) for it, and then seeing half dalaran with the same mount? No thanks.Nothing can beat he joy I felt when I won the /roll for Attumen the Huntsman's horse, one of the rarest mounts in game. http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30480So no, as much as I like these mounts, they completely lost they "real" value if they're going to be BoE. The meaning of these mounts now is "I have a lot of gold/money".

Your Attumen mount isn't devalued by people soloing him for the mount, so why would a TCG mount be devalued by other people having it?And since the mounts are back to BOP and unique on PTR, I'm not sure if any will be up on the auction house anyway.
Why do you think more people will have it now? You still have to find the loot card, pick which server you want the loot on, go to Booty Bay and get your loot, and then find some schmuck who wants to pay 100,000g for your loot card. These items will still remain as rare as they always have been - people will just spend in-game gold instead of US$ for the mounts.There aren't going to be hundreds of the cards popping up instantaneously on every server just because they're bind on use.

@ Ringo: Because it was bought and not won? it's not the same thing to open a card pack and find the loot card in there than browsing eBay for the card. And instead eBay, you're just going to browse the AH. It's not about the mount being undervalued, it's about the feeling you get when finding it. Farming a mount involves some kind of effort, and a lot of time if you're unlucky. Buying it maybe involves a lot of time and effort to get the money.... but it could also be gold bought from a goldseller.@ Blake: You're right. But it's now even more possible to see more than one of these in the same server or even at the same place. Most people don't know about these mounts. Being in the AH it's a huge change. Because of that I think the "uniqueness" is lost.Of course, the amount of money ppl will ask for it will make them rare not for the drop rate, but for the outrageous price.I would love to have one of these mounts, and if I had the gold maybe i would buy one. But i prefer to find the loot card myself, nothing woud beat that IMO.
