Most WoW players know about Vial of the Sands primarily because of the ridiculous amount of time and mats that it takes to acquire.
My question to this forum is why can't I ever find this item for sale at the auction house on my server? I saw it for sale a couple of times about two weeks ago, but since then I haven't seen it since. I even created a guy on the Alliance (I usually play Horde) just to check and see if they have any, and what-do-you-know, they had one listed for 60k.
However, here's the part that I don't get -- I see Hordies in Org that have it, so I know that there are some alchemists with it. I'm not seeing that I see it a ton, but I can usually fly around Org and see at least 2 people with it at any time.
Any speculation as to what the hold up is on my server?
EDIT: Against all odds, my wife just got this recipe last night. Surprisingly, she got the canopic jar on her 2nd solve in Uldum and then got the recipe in the canopic jar.
