WoW Battle for Azeroth Adds a Portable Auction House Valued at $480

The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is the ultimate status symbol for Goblins.

The latest beta build for World of Warcraft's Battle for Azeroth expansion is available and Blizzard has added something new and unique to WoW as a whole. With the new build, there's the Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur. The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is a three-person mount, much like the previous Traveler's Tundra Mammoth from Wrath of the Lich King and Grand Expedition Yak from Mists of Pandaria.

Both of those mounts offered portable vendors. The Tundra Mammoth had a repairer and basic food/drink vendor. The Yak improved upon this with a Repair vendor who also offered food and drink alongside a Transmogrifier in the second seat. The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur ups the ante by adding a normal vendor and an Auctioneer, making it the first mount with this option in the game.

Previously, if you wanted to access the game's Auction House, you needed to either go back to one of the capital cities or use the Remote Auction House application. The new mount means you can access the Auction House from anywhere in the world, which is great for players who are always on the AH trying to make money.

5 million gold is a top-tier price in World of Warcraft, sitting right at half of the game's gold cap of 9,999,999 gold. If you've been grinding the Auction House and Gold Missions for a long time, you might have that much. If not, your other option is the WoW Token system. Players can purchase a WoW Token on the Blizzard Shop for $20.00 and that token has a variable price in-game.

As of this writing, the WoW Token on US Servers costs 210,518 gold. That means you'd need 24 Tokens for the full price of the mount, which comes to $480. So the mount's rough value is around $480. Pricey, no? If you have the gold for it, the mount is purchasable from vendors in the new capital cities of Zuldazar or Tiragarde Sound.

It's worth noting that ahead of this change, Blizzard Entertainment decided to sunset the Remote Auction House application and website. As of April 18, the WoW Armory app still exists, but any Auction House functionality is gone.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will be launching on August 14, 2018 for PC and Mac.
