I'm on Mannoroth-US and everyone thinks Guardian Cubs are a freaking joke. Currently, people are placing their WoW gold above their RL-gold. Saying $10 is chump-change compared to a person paying $15 a month. But 10k gold is a few days of farming. Guardian Cub won't put a dent in goldsellers in the long run, and vanity pets are really only sought after by RPers and RPPVPers

How silly of you to decide you know who wants vanity pets? I collect them on my main and one alt and dislike RP very much. Many folks like them, no doubt including RPers.

I'm a roleplayer, and I usually don't want a pet out while RPing. Pets are better for raiding, especially to break up the visual monotony of Firelands.

In the long run, you're right -- this pet *alone* won't put a sizable dent in third-party gold sellers. But if we get a new tradeable pet/mount every four months or so ... that's a lot of dents, and a lot of pressure on the bad guys' bottom line.

"and vanity pets are really only sought after by RPers and RPPVPers"Today. But this time next year, that vanity pet will be kicking your vanity pet's ass.

I wonder just how much they'll have to concede to compete with the gold sellers.Will they eventually have to cross the epics for sale boundary? I hope not, but I really don't think I can say "never" or "impossible" any more.
