T7 - Riders of Stangard rep recipes -- extremely difficult to craft for another toon!
Upon reaching Friend status with the Riders of Stangard, I decided that I would have my lvl 75 Tailor (Hunter) make a set of Rep armour for himself, and for my lvl 75 RK (Scholar).
Upon chatting with Colbrand, the Crafting Recipe Vendor in Stanford, I discovered that all of the Rep Recipes
1- Cost "tokens," not cash
2- Were Bind on Acquire (BoA)
3- Were Single-Use
Now, for one toon -- the Hunter himself, this is not a big deal. He had enough tokens to acquire the recipes and enough Sigils to make the armour.
Of course, to make the Critted version one needs a Westfold Crafting Manual -- which also requires a sigil and is made by a scholar. This was cool... My scholar can make the journals in exchange for a set of Armour. OOPS.
While the armour itself is Bind on Equip, (BoE) and can therefore be sold/traded/placed in shared storage -- the recipes are the issue -- because they are BoA and the Silver Tokens of the Anduin are NOT!
That means that my Scholar cannot acquire the recipe for my Tailor -- at least Colbrand realizes this and won't sell them to me, and therefore prevents me from "wasting tokens" -- nor can he pass my Tailor tokens to make the acquisition on his behalf.
Clearly this is a bug. (Or a serious design flaw.) It prevents the current "End Game" Armour from being acquired by those who need it, if they happen to be a different profession.
My Jeweler is now 74 and will be headed to the Great River shortly. The Great River Jewelry is apparently in the same situation. (Although there are only 4 of them rather than 6 -- i.e. only 80 tokens per set rather than 120!
Sigh... yes, I have bugged this behavior.
