Thanks for your feedback!
As Lylirra mentioned [url="http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7004693267#14"]here[/url], we're definitely aware of the frustration vendoring the wrong item can cause for players (I've done it, myself). We strongly urge players to use caution whenever selling items to a vendor, and to take advantage of the Buyback tab in instances where an oversight occurs, but beyond that, we have no immediate plans for an additional layer of protection.
Vaelflare, would the devs be so adamantly against adding shift-right click to be able to equip an item from inventory? That should put an end to this issue once and for all, and give you a "lock" without actually building in a true lock. It would be nice to see some win/win put into this game instead of the devs just saying "sorry, we don't want to..." all the time. Players keep bringing up legitimate issues and they get shined off, and this is a perfect example of such.
I don't know if it's ego, or if the devs feel insulted that we don't like how the UI is causing these issues, but frankly, they need to man up and fix the root causes of these issues so we stop having them in the first place.
I made a really
nice suggestion a while back regarding the trade window and how it can be fixed so the scams go away, and not so much as a whisper on that one. And it was even in a constructive thread from Starbird.
I get that we don't get communication directly from the developers most of the time regarding our suggestions, but to just get shot down "because" is starting to grate on many of us.
In this particular case, the "root cause" is having to mindlessly and repetitively click to ID all of the rares we pick up. Had the devs put in an ID All (for rares, but not Legendary/Set items) as we've been asking for since launch, this issue wouldn't even exist, as it is a very rare
occurence that an errant right click swaps out items outside of the mindless identification process.
If you fix the many little problems with the game (a lot of them are with the UI), people stop worrying about them all the time and go back to focusing on the game itself. Instead, what we're seeing is players are clamboring for certain things, but the devs are just ignoring us. The complaints will not go away until the cause of the issues are eliminated/fixed.
The more the devs keep saying "we have no plans to...", the more they appear out of touch with their players when it comes to quality of life issues within the game. Hell, we're not even talking about game balance here, but something that keeps us from losing our (usually) hard earned items, and we're essentially being told to bug off.
How do you think the players in general are going to respond to that?
