We have no idea why Blizzard is removing this pet, but I assume is has something to do with his uniqueness. This pet was the only bet that you could buy with real money and sell it in game for gold. Basically it was a very legal method of buying gold in-game.
I’m pretty sure that a lot of people will buy it these days and its in-game price will be the same or even lower, but in time it will be more and more rare and its price will increase drastically.
So, if you want to invest in pet now is the time, even if this will be a long term investment.
Now tell us, what are your plans? Are you going to buy this pet or you’ll just get it from Auction House?
