Redditor DM_ME_KUL_TIRAN_FEET shared a tale of woe about spending 180,000 gold on a BMAH mystery box, which contained a Goblin Weather Machine - Prototype 01-B Goblin Weather Machine that they had already received from a Twitch drop just a day earlier.

Thoms689 was duped into bidding 1.2 million gold for a Tabard of Frost Tabard of Frost by a friend who was secretly outbidding him to inflate the price, a betrayal that cost him both gold and a friendship.

Sigilweavers told a comedic yet painful tale of bidding 900,000 gold for a Firelands mount only to discover they already owned it after winning the auction. This story serves as a cautionary reminder to double-check what you already have before entering a bidding war.

MattyIce8998 recounted an almost regrettable bid of 800,000 gold on Frostfire shoulders, narrowly avoided by being outbid. They eventually acquired the item when it became craftable, much cheaper.

These stories encapsulate the high-risk, high-reward nature of the Black Market Auction House, where players' fortunes can swing dramatically with each bid and the lengths to which gamers will go for the rarities WoW has to offer.

Not a BMAH story but I did get the 0.69% Zul'gurub Armored Razzashi Raptor from the DOTI random mount the other day. That was pretty sweet :D

Most intense BMAH bidding battles I've had were back in Legion in the PVP Sewers and the Dazaralor area BMAH PVP, outside of bidding that made things more dangerous I suppose. Have all the tabards, a few toys I won, some dupe container mounts from the 3 or 4 boxes I bought before I stopped that. Frost I got as a Twitch drop. Reminds me of another story, I won the frost mog staff (not sure the name) because my BMAH rival could not afford both Tabard of Frost and the staff, this was around the time of BoD so Jaina water mogs were popular. I've wasted far too much gold but it was a thing to do. Brutosaur vendor also spent way too much and would check the daily market. Have a few tier sets, Dread armor on DK, some warrior, a few set pieces. If you like your gold avoid it though it's an incredible gold sink, adrenaline rush if you like auction bidding wars. I even had a BMAH buddy on one realm for a bit, some good times.

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.|n|nThe item level of your reward will be based on your highest run this week.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_FIRST - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a second Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_SECOND - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a third Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 WEEKLY_REWARDS_THRESHOLD_WORLD - Complete %d |4Delve:Delves; or |4World Activity:World Activities; GREAT_VAULT_WORLD_TIER - Tier %s WEEKLY_REWARDS_ITEM_LEVEL_WORLD - Item Level %1$d - (Tier %2$d) WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_WORLD - Complete a Tier %1$d delve or higher to increase this reward's item level. New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. World activities count as Tier 0, as you can see in the global string.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Raids
      Defeat 2/4/6 raid bosses to unlock slots 1-3. Dungeons
      Complete 1/4/8 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking dungeons to unlock slots 1-3. World
      Complete 3/6/12 Delves or world activities to unlock slots 1-3.

      Let's check out the unique and rare mounts available from the vendor in MoP Remix.
      MoP Remix introduces 29 new mounts for your collection. However, there are some additional very rare mounts from raids and world bosses with a drop chance of around 1%. The best part is that you can buy them from vendors once you have enough Bronze. Just keep in mind that these items have a minimum level requirement and are quite expensive.
      Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent (1% drop from Elegon in Mogu'shan Vaults)

      Reins of the Cobalt Primordial Direhorn (1% drop from world boss Oondasta)

      Reins of the Slate Primordian Direhorn (Low chance to drop from the Zandalari Warbringer Rare Elite in Townlong Steppes)

      Reins of the Amber Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Reins of the Jade Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Spawn of Horridon (1% drop from Horridon in Throne of Thunder)

      Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent (1% drop chance from Sha of Anger)

      Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent (World Boss Nalak)

      Reins of the Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent (World Boss Huolon)

      Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent (Alani)

      Son of Galleon (World Boss Galleon)

      The limited time Remix event just got a lot less deadly, as Blizzard fix another bug. Certain high level boss abilities were doing double damage, but a hotfix has cleared that all up! 
      Remix (Source)
      With a hotfix that we applied a few minutes ago, we’ve fixed a bug that was causing some high-level boss abilities to unintentionally do double damage to players.
      For players who have been inside an instance since before the hotfix went out, there will be no change until you leave and start a new instance.
      Thank you for your reports and feedback!

      Players without the Dragonflight expansion have been having trouble after reaching level 60in the MoP Remix event. Their characters would become locked, as levels 60 and up were part of the Dragonflight expansion, so there was quite a bit of confusion since the event wasn't supposed to require the latest expansion. 
      Luckily Blizzard have now clarified that this was a bug, and have since resolved it! 
      Remix (Source)
      We believe that this issue has been fixed with an update that we deployed with realm restarts earlier this morning.
