Black Market Auction House in Legion

Recommended Posts

IyH7l59.jpg

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.

      • 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.

Rare Patron

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?

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.
      Disc Priest (source)
      I’ve added the following new fix to the notes in the OP:
      Priest
      Discipline Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      There's been a lot of feedback on the Auction House changes introduced on the PTR and today Blizzard have responded to a lot of it, with some answers about how the AH will work in general, as well as PTR specific issues.
      Auction House (source)
      We think you can do this by using a combination of the “Uncollected Only” checkbox in the filter dropdown and the Armor/Weapon categories on the left.
      ...
      All versions of the same pet will be grouped in the same page. Since the auctions on that page will be mix of various levels, rarities, and stats, it’ll be up to the buyer to determine which pet they want to buy.
      ...
      At this time, we’re continuing with the 48-hour max duration the WoW auction house has always had.
      ... Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far!
      Here are some known issues that will be fixed on upcoming PTR builds:
      Dressing Room support (CTRL click) Linking to chat (Shift click) Durations showing the wrong times Then there's a lot of responses to current issues that are either PTR specific, or will be resolved quickly:
      AH (source)
      We don’t have wildcard functionality, but you can simply search for the first few words (example: Notorious Combatant’s Intuitive Staff) and it will return all items matching that.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
        The “Uncollected Only” filter will return all items that you don’t have the appearance for. As a result, you may see several items for the same appearance.
        There is a “Usable Only” filter that will only show you recipes you can learn.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the feedback.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
      ... Thanks! We’re aware of duration displays issues, and we’re working on that right now.
