Vanity Items in Cata

This is more speculation than anything, I began thinking that vanity pets and other vanity items that are needed for achievements will be in huge demand come expansion. My reasoning is that players will create new characters and want to match their main's achievements.

A good example of a pet that could possibly be worth farming for is [Azure Whelpling]. This pet may no longer drop come cataclysm since the mobs it drops from will be removed. I am still waiting for confirmation but this could be worth farming or staking out on the auction house for some good deals. This pet could bring in several grand if it turns out to be removed from the game. If anyone has confirmation on this please let me know.

Another thought I've had is the [Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger] that only high end raiding guilds can obtain. When expansion launches this item will be very limited in supply as raiding guilds will quit ICC content. It will be difficult for players to put together groups to go and farm these items in cataclysm. I rarely see anyone putting groups together to run old TBC raid content so I figure it would be the same for wotlk content. You could possibly be able to buy this mount for 20 to 40k gold now and resell it for 80 to 100k after expansion launches. Again this is all speculation but this is very realistic scenarios. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for checking in!

What are they going to do to all of the craftables that won't be valid with the new changes?
Will they be replacing my ability to create ammo pouches and soul bags, both of which will be useless soon?

@ Cold,
Good point cold, I really want to get into beta to find out. I hope blizz does exchange some of these items for new crafting patterns. Seems like it would limited some of our options at crafting.

I haven't seen a Deathcharger under 90k on any realm....where are you getting 20/40k?

@ Anon,
No joke, I've seen them on my realm for 20 to 50k. When the three top guilds first got the charger they were selling them for 100k but no one was willing to buy it. So prices fell. I had heard from another player on my realm that he had seen on another realm he plays on, one go for 20k So it is entirely possible but still they have to be rare deals.
