    I logged on this morning for some quick Mote of Fire farming before work, and the second mob I killed dropped this. After I got over the shock of seeing purple at 5:30 AM, I realized I could actually use the thing.

    It's a good neckpiece and by itself is an upgrade over the one I currently use most often: here. If I could get the ring that goes with it it would be an even bigger upgrade. However it's also BoE and according to allakhazam I might be able to get 4 figures for it on the AH, especially if I'm lucky enough to find a rich caster who already has the ring.

    Arguments for keeping:
    1. It's a good caster piece, especially if I complete the set.
    2. It's a zomg epix! and purple looks good on me. I may not get so lucky raiding in terms of drops or rolls.
    3. World epic drops are notoriously inconsistent sellers on the AH. It may take several weeks to sell if it does at all.

    Arguments for selling:
    1. The ring is also a BoE world drop, and the likelihood of finding it myself is slim. I would probably have to shell out some gold to get it.
    2. I don't have 300 riding skill yet, in fact I'm not even close to the 5000g required. The gold I might get from this would certainly make a dent.
    3. I can find comparable items from raiding (e.g. this from Moroes) or PvP (e.g. this.)

    Thoughts? Discuss...

    Selling or using are both good options. But unless you complete the set then it isn't super good.

    Yeah, I know, if I had the ring too it would be a no-brainer, I would just equip it. But it's not a bad item by itself, there's not much out there that's easily available and better. Manasurge Pendant maybe once I start farming heroics.

    I guess the real question is, how much gold would I need to get to make it not worth equipping myself? Once I know that I could put it on the AH for at least that much and see if it sells.

    1000g was my thought as well, although I'd initially try for more and come back down to 1000 if it's not selling.

    1000g in one shot is awfully tempting.

    damn... all of your sample alternatives that you linked are awfully nice. Obviously, the Charlottes Ivy is nicer, but 1000+ gold in your account, with a very decent alternative would be even better...

    I would sell, and use one of those alts...

    Well, I'll be the lone voice for keeping. Making gold is easy, stuff that you actually get in a drop is cool.

    Trying to sell it. Initial listing of 1300 staring, 1500 buyout was probably a little ambitious, but maybe I just need to advertise better. I hate the trade channel and the WoW forums are overrun by morons, even the realm forums. (Or is it, "especially the realm forums"?)

    Currently listed at 1000 starting, 1200 buyout. I'll keep it there for a few days and see what happens.
