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.

    • Navigate to your realm.
      • Information about bid amounts, time left, and realm market price (AH prices of the BMAH item) can be found here.

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?

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets
      A list of new pets that have been added in 7.2 can be found here. Pet Battle Dungeons Screenshots

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.
      Vantus Rune: Black Rook Hold Vantus Rune: Cathedral of Eternal Night Vantus Rune: Court of Stars Vantus Rune: Darkheart Thicket Vantus Rune: Eye of Azshara Vantus Rune: Halls of Valor Vantus Rune: Maw of Souls Vantus Rune: Neltharion's Lair Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Lower) Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Upper) Vantus Rune: Vault of the Wardens Vantus Rune: Violet Hold Vantus Rune: The Arcway Tomb of Sargeras Vantus Runes
      Vantus Rune: Demonic Inquisition Vantus Rune: Fallen Avatar Vantus Rune: Fel Titan Vantus Rune: Goroth Vantus Rune: Harjatan the Bludger Vantus Rune: Kil'jaeden Vantus Rune: Mistress Sassz'ine Vantus Rune: Sisters of the Moon Vantus Rune: The Desolate Host Vantus Rune: Tomb of Sargeras What do you think about Vantus Runes being added to Mythic+ dungeons?
