Black Market Auction House in Legion

The Black Market Auction House allows players to get hands on unique items, rare mounts, transmogs, but do you know where Madam Goya moved for Legion?

Madam Goya's Business Trips

When first introduced, the Black Market Auction House was located in Veiled Stairs, in Pandaria.

In Warlords of Draenor, Madam Goya moved to Nagrand, the Ring of Blood.

And because she's such a traveller at heart, the Legion expansion makes no difference. Her new home is Dalaran's Underbelly (coords 69/15). She's located in the northeastern hexagonal room.

Finally, here's the new Black Market in its full glory, but there are some changes to go through in Legion.

Madam Goya is in a PvP zone, which can make bidding quite painful. Once you die, the corpse run may very well mean a lost or won bid. The Black Market has never before been located in a capital city. Expect more competition. So what's different?

  • The Underbelly has two entrances in Dalaran - (34/45 & 59/47).
    • There's also a well in front of the bank which teleports you to a random Underbelly spot when jumped into. 
  • By default the Underbelly is under guard (with no allowed PvP); indicated by the Sewer GuardsSewer Guards buff.
  • Underbelly Captain Raethan can be bribed to call off guards for 50 Sightless Eyes.
  • What happens is all players will get flagged for PvP > No GuardsNo Guards that can turn your bidding into an utter nightmare.
  • To prevent ganking you can hire a personal guard from Raethan that prevents you from attacking others and vice-versa at the cost of 5 Gold/ 5 minutes > Hired GuardHired Guard.

Auctions

It's important to know which auctions are up in the Black Auction House on your realm, if you're willing to get your hands on certain items, which is why there's a website that will be useful, once you're not in-game.

I skipped MOP at the time, but going back through it... how did Blizzard not get crucified for how overtly racist it was?

Probably because it wasn't considered racist to borrow elements from existing cultures to create stories and themes until very recently. I remember a time not too long ago where everyone was excited by the idea of the melting pot, rather than forcing segregation by claiming any attempt to enjoy or participate in ethnic cultures in media as being racist.

That's not really what I meant.  I was talking more about characterizing the Chinese as kung-fu practicing alcoholics, the 'dragon lady' stereotype that many female Pandaren seem to be using, the simplemindedness of characters like Cousin Slowhands, etc.

That's originating from Warcraft 3... it's not new... they simply followed the path they already created years ago.

Which makes it... less racist? It's the same company.

Much more people are used to see this type of "humor" from Blizzard so they're less likely to notice theses things. I'm not defending them, just trying to answer your question.

As with Latino/Hispanic, Chinese is not a race.  You're talking about ethnocentrism, but it's odd to perceive such in MoP but not perceive it in your everyday life regarding America, American culture, and American people.

Regardless, it's a video game, not a history book.  Video games are replete with gender, nationality, racial, and ethnic stereotypes.  Pandaria is inspired by portions of Chinese lore and history (reflecting the same entertainment and mythology promulgated endlessly within China), and you have to come in with a pretty jaundiced eye to think the fantasy civilization it presents is anything but flatteringly beautiful and inherently good.

Maybe am I confused, but as far as her locationmis concerned, and for those who are allergic to PvP

You can buy a body guard that lasts 5 minutes and prevenrs you from being attacked, or;

You can see her in your Draenor garrison.

I wonder if you can still get her from a mission. If so, it might actually be worth still doing the garrison missions.

"Kung fu practicing alcoholics"

Well, for 10,000ish years, the dwarves have been gun toting alcoholics which in every state of the union,to my knowledge, is a actual crime, not just one of the litany of social nuances classified as 'racist.'

Does that mean I want the dwarves turned into gender-neutral, monochrome 8-bit pixie creatures who love everyone according to their needs?

      World of Warcraft is currently on discount and redditor Gankeros pointed out an interesting fact; a level 100 boost costs just $25 and that's not the only thing!
      Level 100 Boost for $25
      Up to 8 World of Warcraft licenses can be attached to a single Battle.net account. The best thing is that the level 100 boost is account-wide, so after you activate the secondary game license, you can use the level 100 boost on your main (primary) license.
      Go to Account Management and under "Game Accounts", navigate to World of Warcraft and select the "Play for free" option to create a new World of Warcraft license. You should be then offered a WoW bundle for $25 / 25 EUR.
      Other Benefits of 2 World of Warcraft Accounts
      The standard Battle Chest comes with 30 days of game time and Black Friday is the ideal time to buy another WoW copy in case you've ever wanted to try out multiboxing. ISBoxer should be your go-to multiboxing software for World of Warcraft. They even offer a trial and it's really easy to set up. Don't forget to recruit yourself before doing any of this!
      If you don't need Legion, it's still good to least buy the Battle Chest for gold making. The first account is obviously your main and the second can be used for sniping. It gets even better if you have two monitors and you log in simultaneously on both accounts. Sniping is well worth it and the account will pay for itself in the long run. What exactly is sniping? The process of constantly checking the last page of the Auction House for cheap deals using preset filters. The main issue with a single license is that you can't be logged in on two characters at the same time. With two accounts, you can have one constantly sniping the Auction House, while you're playing your main.

      In order to improve the AoE performance of Shadow Priests in short duration multitarget situations, changes are planned for the class with next week's maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the next weekly maintenance, we'll be shifting around some of Shadow Priests' damage sources with the goal of improving their AOE damage performance in short-duration multitarget situations - namely dungeon trash packs.

      The nature and lifetime of dungeon trash packs makes it hard for Shadow Priests to ramp up to their full damage potential as part of their rotation. These changes should improve that situation, with a mostly neutral effect for overall performance in longer-duration raid fights.  Void Eruption No longer deals a separate damage event for each of your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch on each target. Instead, deals a single damage event to all targets that have EITHER your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch. Void Eruption damage increased by 700% Shadow Crash Cooldown reduced to 20 sec. (down from 30 sec) Insanity generation increased to 20. (up from 15) Missile speed increased by 60%. Mind Sear (Passive) Damage increased by 50%. Heart of the Void (Legendary) Increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (down from 300%) and heals you for 25% (down from 40%) of the damage done. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral. Shadow Word: Pain/Vampiric Touch Damage reduced by 4%. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

      Did you miss any matches played at BlizzCon 2017? No problem! Blizzard uploaded a recap video of the WoW Arena World Championship with all important highlights.
      Congratulations to this year's world champions - team ABC! For more BlizzCon coverage check out our BlizzCon 2017 content hub.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Miss any matches? Forget the final? Wonder who won? Look no further! We have all the action from the Arena World Championship world finals at BlizzCon 2017 right here.
      WANT THE TL;DR? WATCH THE RECAP VIDEO
      HOW CHAMPIONS ARE MADE
      In the opening week, ten teams descended on Anaheim in the run-up to the finals, with two teams eliminated on day one.
      Panda Global took down Rockets Eclipse with relative ease, to be met by defending world champions Method: Triforce. Panda Global were on fire, with the fever-pitch energy of the crowd fanning the flames. They beat the champions 3-1 in the semi-final to win their place in the final.
      EU VS NA
      Across the bracket, the top-seeded North America team—Method Synergy—faced Europe’s second seeded team, ABC. ABC’s tried and tested formula of Alec on Mage and Niksi on Rogue, seen the previous year, worked like a charm taking down NA’s #1 team 3-2.
      ABC EASY AS 123…4
      The finals in 2017 were once again NA vs EU. The comeback kids on Panda Global looked a little shaky and struggled to hold form, testing the limits of their passionate fans’ patience and creating a tense, exciting atmosphere throughout the arena. Sensing victory, ABC took full control; beating Panda Global in a nail-biting set of games 4-0—earning them their rightful place in World of Warcraft Arena history.
      CONGRATULATIONS TO ABC: WORLD CHAMPIONS!

      ABC Crowned World Champions
