Player Spends 600K Gold on Ashes of A'lar

Recommended Posts


A player on Whitemane spent 600,000 gold to buy Ashes of A'lar on their character in Burning Crusade Classic.

What is GDKP?

Some groups prefer a gold-based loot system, also known as "GDKP", meaning you pay for loot, and the gold is then split among the raid members. It is the direct opposite of the standard effort-based DKP system you see in most guilds.

Here's AMG's SSC/TK loot sheet. A player named "Stormy" spent up to 600K on Ashes of Al'ar Ashes of Al'ar, a rare mount that drops from Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep. 600K gold split among all raid members means each person almost received 25K gold.

I think the more shocking thing is that the term "GDKP" needed to be explained, to think that some players might have been going this whole time with bad gear but a lot of gold, makes me sad.

I don't understand that loot system, why he needed to pay 600K if second highest bid was only 55K...

The table there shows the winning bid for items sold, not all the bids for a specific item. The 55k was what a different item was purchased for.   So the bids for the mount arent shown.

      Blizzard have announced that low population realms would be getting free character transfers in the coming weeks! 
      Transfers (Source)
      In the next couple of weeks, we intend to enable free character transfers for many Burning Crusade Classic realms. We’re planning to offer free transfers from all of the lowest-population BCC realms to any high-population realm of the same ruleset and region.
      We will update this post to let you know all the details when we have the free character transfers underway.
      Thank you!

      Well, here's another speed monster, as Exehn is back with more Haste stacking craziness - this time in bear form! Despite being the Haste king, the bear isn't quite the fastest swinger, as he still only comes out at 0.4 seconds, unlike the previous attempt with a Paladin, which "only" had 442% Haste but, ironically, used fists whereas the bear is using a 2-hander!
      In any case, this level 10 bear is a crazy fast and is wreaking havoc in PvP. You can see the gear loadout here, with plenty of World Buffs utilized as well.

      Retail isn't the only one with a lot of hotfixes today, as both BCC and Classic Era servers got plenty of changes today!
      November 9 (Source)
      Burning Crusade Classic
      The Botanica, The Mechanar, and Arcatraz dungeons now require Expert Riding skill to enter. Fixed an issue where multiple spectators could not join the queue for a Spectator Match War Game. Fixed an issue where Poison Cleansing Totems from Horde Shaman would dispel 2 stacks of poison instantly when used, instead of the intended 1 stack. Fixed an issue where a player that was attacked by a Rogue that immediately vanished after would sometimes drop out of combat much quicker than intended. WoW Classic
      Fixed an issue where the Colorblind Mode filters were not working as intended on newer graphics cards on DirectX12. Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the appearance of a belt to be removed when a Guild Tabard is removed.

      Update: Blizzard announced they would not be applying the below raid tuning, at least not this week:
      Raid Tuning (Source)
      Upon further review, we’ve decided to give this at least a week and discuss it some more. We will not be implementing the changes above with maintenance.
      We’ll continue to look for your feedback here and update you with our revised plan, if any, in the next couple of days.
      Blizzard has announced and detailed raid tuning coming to BCC with this week's resets, as Vashj, Kael'thas and Morogrim get some changes.
      Raids (Source)
      With weekly maintenance in each region, we’re applying some hotfixes to raid encounters as a step toward their final tuning.
      Serpentshrine Caverns
      Morogrim Tidewalker – Tidewalker Lurkers’ health has been reduced to their post-nerf values. Lady Vashj – Persuasion no longer provides crowd control immunity. Tempest Keep
      Kael’thas Sunstrider – The encounter is now set to its post-nerf configuration. Again, these adjustments will be live following maintenance tomorrow, November 9.
