Less than one week to The Burning Crusade.
Accounts for sale on eBay: 918 (up 325!)
– Under the old system: 439 (up 155)
High Price: $1,500 ( 6/9 T3 Warrior with Gressil [Kel’Thuzad sword] also has two other Naxx weapons)
Highest Price w/ Bid: $1,500 – same account as above, it actually has 7 bids
Accounts with Kelâ€™Thuzad weapons: 4 (up 3) Accounts with Legendary items: 38 (Up 1) (This number is somewhat inflated because it counts splinters of Atiesh and a lot of people have those – not too useful though unless youâ€™re in a guild that can kill KT.)

- 1000g on Frostmane (Alliance): $129.27-$371.39 (about the same)

Gold seems roughly stable. A ton of accounts are going on sale. It looks like a lot of people are getting out (or cashing out before TBC). Probably a lot of the really hard core people are just trying to get some cash and will either play alts or start new characters with the new races (Blood Elf or Dranei).
I’m also seeing a lot of things that look like scams as I browse the accounts for sale. Be careful.
