I personally think this is a great idea. I see no downside to this at all. Blizzard is not selling us gold, they are selling us pets, just as they've always done, and for the same price they have always done. The only difference is that now if you want to list the pet on the AH and make it available to those who do not have the extra cash income you can do that as well.Considering how limited the pet collection market is I would be amazed to see this as a way to "buy gold". People will value the pet highly at first, maybe, but as the more avid pet collectors purchase this pet the price will quickly drop dramatically, most likely evening out at around 1 - 2k gold. Couple that with the AH cut and the leanth of time it will take to find a buyer most people will see this as an entirely inefficient way to "buy gold".The idea is brilliant and fair to all parties considered. As already stated the only thing this does is open up the option to buy this companion pet to those without the income to shell out real cash for the companion. There is no downside and all the people naysaying it are just people jumping onto the "let's hate anything that blizzard does" bandwagon that passes through town whenever blizzard does anything.
