Change the color of Staff of Herding

Posts: 3
So I spent a few hours farming the materials to make the staff of herding yesterday and enjoyed a quick run through whimsyshire. Right before I finished, my inventory was full so I dropped all the non-colored items in my inventory (as per usual), picked up a couple more items, then went and sold everything, logged out and back in expecting to run through whimsyshire again and then I realized I didn't have the staff anymore. Because it was tagged as a non magical item, I'd dropped it from my inventory so I could pick up more crap to sell. And now I have to spend a few more hours and another 150k gold to make a new one.

Moral of the story, blizz, can you *please* tag items like that with a different damn color so I can see on site what it is and that it's important when I'm emptying my bags? The only reason I can think of for making an item that difficult to get *white* is that you're a bunch of sadistic jerks and you *want* people to make that mistake. The crap you have to go through to *get* the staff in the first place tends to make that more likely, but you'll be doing your help line people a great service by saving them the annoying calls from people asking to have their staff of herding restored cause they threw it over a cliff by just marking it with a damned color!

Rather than recoding the entire game, taking down all the servers across the world for a reboot, and probably another 1 or 2 reboots to solve any bug problems.

Also add in time for testing.

Or you could pay attention to what you are doing so the rest of the world isn't disturbed in their gaming.

Make a new char pay more attention :). Doubt you will make that mistake again.

Cause changing an item tag is so hard and destructive. Seriously, it doesn't require a lot of work to do. But being a douchebag in the forums sure is fun, isn't it?

Don't be ridiculous. There is no way it would take 2 reboots, only 1.

Not being dumb and paying attention is so very hard isn't it. Oh wait for you it is. Being a douchbag on the forums is way better than just being a douchebag! Oh wait you're the douchebag here.
