Let me paraphrase the ZG Breakdown blue post by picking out the three most important paragraphs:
Razzashi HatchlingSo, let's see, did markco just get his second strike for the expansion? What's next, saronite ore not being worth diddly squat thanks to node changes like they did with ungoro crater? Sigh. At least for the time between 4.0.3 and Cataclysm (4.1?) tome of polymorph will not be available except via the auction house. Try to sell as many as you can for whatever you can get for them.
With the change to Zul'Gurub this non-combat pet will no longer be obtainable.
Tome of Polymorph: Turtle
This tome will continue to be available through other means.
Although we have no current plans to introduce new ways to obtain the Zul'Gurub mounts, pets, and the tribute mounts, they may return should we find a place where they fit in the future.
Sell off those poly's, hang on to those raptor pets. But don't hold on to too many because that last paragraph makes me think that eventually or soon* Blizzard will find a way to incorporate the razzashi hatchling pet into a future patch.
Is now the time to stress buying up battered hilts for cheap since they will become ultra rare in the expansion? Maybe I should wait a few days...
All these nerfs and changes brings up a very important point I'd like to make for you all.
Patches and speculation are high risk, high reward gambles.
You win some, you lose some. During glyph-mas, glyph makers gambled and made it big while jewelcrafters who stockpiled mats instead of epics got the shaft. In WOTLK I gambled on dream shards and lost, in BC I gambled on netherweave bags and won. You are gambling when you speculate and you must be prepared to lose, which is something none of the people advocating speculating are going to tell you because they are just so sure that they will be correct in their assumptions... until of course they are proven wrong.
A word of advice for cataclysm: Focus your gold making efforts on learning your professions as quickly as possible in cataclysm and I don't mean skill levels. I'm talking about learning how the profession functions in the game environment both internally and with other professions.
Did you gamble and win or lose in previous patches, including the latest glyph-mas?
And now for a timely Halloween Tip:
