Black ghosts?

New Player Help and Guides
Post Limit:
Sometimes when I'm in a dungeon/main city, I sometimes see these untargetable black ghosts, they move around and seem to follow people sometimes and after seeing it in WotLK a few years ago I still have no idea what it is.

If my memory is correct, they were spawns of a Haunted Memento. Not 100% correct though.
remnants from the scourge invasion i believe when wrath of the lich king was launched.

Honestly no recollection as to why there still moving about, maybe there as pervious posted stated haunted somein or other

lol last time I found one of those ghosts was in Black Temple, before we started to attack Illidan xD

This is correct. They dropped from the scourge invasion during the pre-WotlK-launch period. Having the Haunted Memento in your inventory has you followed by a 'black ghost'. They linger a bit at your back so when someone is in the AH for example, this ghost might be at the mailbox (like in your pic). If you see one, you might see someone around with the 'something is with you' debuff.

Me too! And the good thing 'bout the mementos is that they are no longer obtainable, meaning their worth in gold increases every day! I used to have two until recently, when I sold one for 8000 gold :)

Precisely! However since it's not obtainable anymore, it just makes it more difficult to sell it. - I've had some great offers on it, but I just can't get rid of it. ;)
