Most expensive items in World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft is no longer a young game, and over the years it has acquired various exclusive items. Today we'll talk about the most expensive items that you can legally buy for real money.

 

Riding Turtle

Initially, this cute mount was only available by activating a WOW TCG loot code. The probability of getting the Saltwater Snapjaw card associated with it was extremely low, it was found in about every 450th "Heroes of Azeroth" card set.

The turtle has some atypical features for a means of transportation:

  1. Moves at the character's normal stride/run speed.
  2. Does not require any riding skill to use.
  3. Can be used at any level.
  4. Counts towards the achievement "Mountain o' Mounts".
  5. If you summon a turtle under water in Vashj'ir, you get a bonus to movement speed.

With the release of Warlords of Draenor update was added an alternative possibility of obtaining this mount, namely with an extremely low chance, Riding Turtle falls from a rare monster, which can be summoned in Garrison while fishing in your fishing hut.

While this monster was unique when the game came out, quite a few turtle-type mounts have been introduced over the years. Given this fact, and the fact that the turtle can now be fished in Garrison, the cost of the loot code is relatively low, and ranges around $200.

 

Stormwind Skychaser and Orgrimmar Interceptor

This mount is paired and exists in two variations: for the Alliance and for the Horde. These mounts are a reward for purchasing a ticket to BlizzCon 2017.

Both mounts are doubles, similar to Fiale of the Sands. The Stormwind Skychaser is based on the model of the Alliance flagship, The Skyfire.

Unlike the Mounts for activating loot codes, these vehicles will be available to all your characters based on their faction. You can get these vehicles only by buying an unsold ticket to BlizzCon 2017 on sites like Ebay. Along with the World of Warcraft mounts, the ticket comes with gifts for other Blizzard games as well. The price of the ticket ranges from $350.

Big Blizzard Bear

Similar to the previous item, this bear is also a BlizzCon award, only while the Stormwind Skychaser and Orgrimmar Interceptor could also be obtained by purchasing a virtual ticket, the Blizzard Big Bear loot code only went to those who attended BlizzCon 2008 in person.

What's interesting is that this bear was the first mount that was not given to a specific character, but was distributed to all the characters in your account.

You can buy a gift loot code for about $450.

 

Murloc Costume

Unlike previous items, the Murlock Costume is a toy. It was given out as a gift to a participant of the distant BlizzCon 2007. The toy has an application time of 6 seconds.

The Murlock costume has almost all of the emotions available to normal characters, as well as its own unique dance.

To get this costume can only buy the appropriate loot code, its price ranges in the range of $ 500.

 

Magic Rooster

You can get this amazing mount thanks to a WOW TCG loot code associated with the card "El Pollo Grande", which means "Big Hen" in Spanish. The probability of getting this card from "Fields of honor" sets was about 1/250.

You can still buy the "El Pollo Grande" card for real money, and its price is ~$2000.

Reins of the Swift Spectral Tiger

This unusual tiger is familiar to many players, primarily because of its unique model. You could get it as a loot code found on the map "Spectral Tiger" found in the "Fires of Outland" set with a chance of 1/156.

Along with the epic version of the Phantom Tiger, which gave a 100% bonus to riding speed, players also received a rare version with a 40% bonus to speed.

The cost of a card with an unused code is between $5,000 and $7,000.

Murky

Rounding out our hit parade is a pet. We're talking about Murky. You could get it as a reward for participating in BlizzCon 2005. Considering that it was the very first Blizzard expo, it's not surprising that the pet is very rare.

From time to time Murky hums a song and picks up his cane and hat and starts dancing.

At this point in the game, there are many Murloc pets, including Murlocs with the same model but a different coloring. Therefore, for a player unfamiliar with the Murky's backstory, he will not seem anything unusual or unique. Nevertheless, if in the game you come across the owner of Murky, you should know that he is either a long-time and loyal fan of World of Warcraft or a Saudi prince, because the cost of Murky loot code reaches 10'000$.

These were the most expensive items in World of Warcraft. As you can see, there are quite a few interesting collectibles in the game. And if you ever decide to buy something exclusive, remember that we are always at your service. Game gold for retail, classic and TBC servers is always available.
