Were you looking for the Black Market in the Underbelly of Dalaran?

The Black Market Auction House (or "BMAH") is a type of Auction House that gives players access to bid on items normally not sold by NPCs. The Black Market is run by the mysterious IconSmall Pandaren Female.gif Madam Goya <Leader of the Black Market>.[1] She is located in Dalaran above the Broken Isles, setting up shop among the lawless elements in the Underbelly.

The items for auction vary by server, as other servers are able to bid on various items.[2]

Bids start in the 10,000-20,000g range and there is no buyout option. The sky is the limit when competing against other collectors for items.[1] Mounts seem to start at 20,000g, armor at 10,000g, companions/pets at 10,000g, and misc items at 10,000 - 15,000g.[3]

The auctions last for more than 12 hours and return your gold to you when outbid or the item upon winning. After winning, another item is not added to the auction house immediately. The number of items that are up for auction is not the same across all servers.[3]

Player can obtain a quest item, Waterlogged Manifest, from a naval mission, [??] Ship-Treasure Black Market Journal. The manifest gives a quest, The Missing Manifest. Upon completing the quest, player can browse Black Market Auction House in their garrison via a new NPC, Zhang Yeoh.

It's not clear what requirements are needed for your Shipyard Shipyard to get the Black Market Journal naval mission.

New Draenor location

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor This section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.

As of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Patch 6.0.2, the Black Market Auction House has moved to Nagrand in Draenor. Due to this many aspects of the place have changed.

From Wowjuju:[5]

Original old location

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

From Wowjuju:[4]

  • You'll need the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Mists of Pandaria expansion.
  • Get to the Veiled Stair, a level 87 area.

Questionmark-medium.png This section concerns content that is potentially inaccurate.

From Wowjuju:[4]

  • There are about 10 items in the auction house at all times that vary in item type and rarity.
  • There is no buyout option. This means that if you really want an item you will have to win it by bidding on it.
  • The bids start at 10,000g.
    • Bids can go up to 9,999,999g.[citation needed]
    • Mounts bids start at 20,000g.
    • Companions bids start at 1,000g.
    • Gear items start from 10,000g.
    • Vanity/misc items start between 10,000g and 15,000g.
  • The bidding works similar to the other auction houses bids.
  • All auctions last for more than 12 hours.
  • After an item is bought by someone, another item is not added to the auction house immediately.
  • The items you might find in BMAH are realm-based.

Gear up a character

#310 - Black Market is starting to go too far | 2012-06-19 12:34 | Zarhym
No one should count on this even being close to a viable option for gearing up a character. If you can raise that kind of gold in the game, you're going to have much better success paying your way into raids for gear than hoping the right items appear for you in the black market AH (which doesn't include set pieces), hoping you can afford to outbid everyone else on your realm, and hoping you're the last one to bid before the auction ends.

Sure, it'll have some of the best rewards for sale. But that doesn't mean it'll be remotely reliable for one person to gear up quickly. It's the black market, after all. :)

Ultimately the system is going to benefit the extremely wealthy and the extremely lucky. But in all likelihood the benefits won't at all be consistent, even for those who can pony up the gold.
