Really? He sells you glyphs that you're missing? Haha, all those scribes expecting a repeat of Glyphmas when Cataclysm launched are in for a big shock, then :)

He's probably a placeholder for beta; I wouldn't count on him being around forever.

This is what they did on the Beta prior to Wrath as well. It will not go live, it's simply there to allow people to playtest the glyphs that players would otherwise pricegouge for (orginally glyphs were being sold for thousands of gold, so blizz dropped in a vendor to fix the price at reasonable levels)
Everything about this vendor tells me this is a "captain placeholder" type of npc that gets you these items for the beta instead of actually having to find a scribe to do it in beta.

Gonna go ahead and say he's probably in place for the beta only to facilitate people dungeoning so they're not reliant on tradecrafts that may or may not be implemented, or an economy that is, put lightly, way out of touch with reality.

If that option makes it to live, I'll eat his hat.

I'm guessing Flaskataur isn't going to make it out of beta. In the beta, you want to make sure that the people running the dungeon are up for the challenge, and don't have to wait a few weeks for all the crafters to get their skills up to snuff. So instead they put in a vendor that sells the stuff, but once things go live you'll likely have to buy the glyphs off the AH like usual.

Nah, he's just on there for the beta -- they'll usually put in placeholder vendors here and there for people so they can make sure they're properly glyphed/enchanted/whatever before testing dungeons. He's definitely not a permanent fixture!

The guy is called "Flaskataur", is gigantic (twice the height of a normal tauren IIRC), wears a fancy suit with top hat included, sells all the glyphs in the game... AND YOU THINK THIS IS GOING LIVE?I'm sorry Foward, but you're just... dumb. Or trolling. I hope it's trolling.

I WANT that suit and top hat.
